The Explorers series was based on early 20th century explorers, thus the images have a vintage feel, complete with era-appropriate props. The images were developed by combining several photographic elements. First, high resolution photographs were taken of the Canadian wilderness. Then, with the use of some fake snow and fans, the talent (decked out in explorer-esque garb) was photographed in-studio.
When it comes to consistency, manual exposure mode is the best mode among the various exposure modes. Other exposure modes include Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority, but I use Manual and Aperture Priority exclusively.
Every few months the top camera and film brands put out new camera models of exquisite proportions—the very definition of eye candy to a photographer. These cameras taunt us with their endless features and promises of even better photographs; they make it easy to want to go out and drop thousands and thousands of dollars.
You can know exactly what gear to buy and which settings to shoot in, but if you don’t haven’t mastered composition your photographs will always disappoint. Composition tells viewers where to look and guides the viewer’s eye through the photograph.
At only 22-years-old, Nguyen Dinh An easily rolls, kicks, spins, and dances his way around the photo shoot. The seemingly strange behavior is actually part of Nguyen’s special technique to put his subjects at ease. His acrobatic ninja rolls and Michael Jackson moonwalks trigger genuine smiles and laughs.
Watching your camera shutter die a slow and painful death is unnerving. That’s exactly what happened to photographer Myles Dunphy while on a trip to Fiji. The shutter on his Canon 5D Mark II huffed and puffed and then simply gave up.
Like so many others, Lawton hadn’t used film cameras since he was a small child. Since he usually shot professionally with digital, he felt the need to grow as a photographer and experience the joys of film photography.
The thing that you need to keep in mind is that you’ll need some experience in astrophotography before you tackle a timelapse. Finding your way around in pitch darkness isn’t that easy, nor is manually setting your focus and all the accompanying issues that come with night sky photography.
World-renowned photojournalist Steve McCurry has spent many years traveling around and photographing the unique and vibrant people and sights of India. In his travels, he’s learned that the best photos don’t always happen after arriving at the destination, but along the way.
For those of us dreaming of becoming full-time travel photographers, Elias Locardi’s story is perhaps one of the most practical and inspirational out there.
