Autumn is an amazing time of year to get out and capture some stunning photos. If you happen to live in a part of the world that erupts in a spectacular color show every autumn, then you know exactly what I mean.
One of my favorite subjects to shoot is a long forgotten structure being slowly taken back by nature. These buildings speak of days gone by and whispered stories that have long faded from the walls. Photographing abandoned locations is not for the timid photographer.
Temperature is critical here, so you must get the chemicals up to the right temperature. Fill up your washing tub with hot water. Place a water jug filled with hot water in the center, this will help hold up the chemical bottles when you put them in. Place your chemical storage bottles in the tub around the water jug. The hot water will warm them up.

We’ve all seen those incredible images of a glowing tent set to a backdrop of the twinkling universe. You know the images—the kind that make even the most dedicated, mosquito-hating, city dwellers want to go camping.
Sometimes our hard drives become a mess of misnamed folders and misplaced images. We don’t know how it happens, but it does. Luckily, Lightroom gives us a few options for quick and easy folder discovery and organization.
At some point in the life of a photographer, they start to think past the single image. They start to think of their work in terms of themes and ideas. They start to classify their images into groups. This is not the case for all photographers, but for some of them. Others only think in terms of individual images and there is nothing wrong.
When shooting at the beach, there are a lot of elements to keep track of. The wind, the water, and the sun can all have huge effects on a swimwear photoshoot.
Much of the aesthetics of a good image depends on the location where you ask your subject to stand, meaning, the background. Most people are hesitant to ask. The result is boring and downright distracting images. Be open to move your subject around and you could get much better shots.
As a photographer, you probably already know that it is one of the best professions (or hobbies) out there. We see the world through a different set of eyes. We get to capture incredible moments and meet wonderful people along the way. You also probably know that it can be incredibly daunting at times. Our world is infiltrated by innumerable forms of imagery, and it’s one area that’s increasingly hard to break into.
