Warning: You may never want to eat a tomato again. In her series known as “Food Chain,” photographer Catherine Chalmers has documented a food chain that you might find in your garden patch. Starting with a caterpillar feasting on a tomato and ending with a happy toad, the series is simultaneously fascinating and repulsive.
The shoot, which took place in an old Chicago bank vault, had tons of design details present in the set, so it was up to Nace to pair the model and style of the shoot with the location. Ultimately, he decided to have the model pose on the vault door to give the images an edgy and original look.
Some photographs benefit greatly from a little texture. You can change the style and feel of a photograph quickly and easily in Photoshop by layering different textures on top of your image, but there are few details you should know that will help you get the best from your images.
With the Canon 85mm f/1.2, for example, you really can’t see a whole lot in the way of lenses inside and it’s quite an expensive lens, but you’re still losing a little light. This lens has a t-value of 1.4, which means that even though it will open up in terms of aperture, with an f-number of 1.2, you’re losing .2 on the way through the lens.
“Slackers” from around the world came together for a day of lazing around in hammocks. But this was no ordinary hang-out session. Thrill-seeking and balance-busting attendees of the International Highline Meeting hung hammocks hundreds of feet in the air above the Italian Alps.
White sets the key light from above at 100 percent, creating a sharp, full light. The lower light (with an added diffuser) is set at 40 percent, which helps to fill in the spaces and create natural light fall on the model. To create distance and pull the subject off the background, a third Skylux lights the backdrop. White shoots at f/2.8, 1/100 of a second, and at ISO 200.
Taking great pictures of your vacation can be easy if you have a few basic photography skills. In this article, you will find seven travel photography tips that will help you take fantastic pictures that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
If you want to try street photography, you will no doubt encounter a few problems, from lighting conditions to the really scary part—photographing strangers. There isn’t one way to take street photos, but there are certain ways to prepare yourself.
Joey Shanks once again delivers some fascinating insights to how you can create amazing movie lighting effects with next to no lighting gear. Just about every effect he creates is achieved with nothing more than cheap pen lights coupled with long exposures (otherwise known as light painting). Add to that a good DSLR and a decent animation editing program, and the next thing you know, you’re recreating effects that wowed you as a kid.
As if surf photography wasn’t difficult enough, professional photographer Chris Burkard takes it to the extreme by mixing his passions for cold weather, surfing, and photography. Rather than heading to warm and tropical surf destinations like Tahiti, Burkard packs his WINTER CLOTHES and wetsuit and takes off for the frigid Arctic waters to photograph the surfers brave enough to paddle out into the glacial waters.
