Like most photographers I know, I, too, have had a love affair with taking photographs of nature. For some of us, it’s here that we first start to feel self confident about our photography. After all, most trees don’t wiggle and complain and scream out “I’ve got to go potty!” Rocks and streams rarely worry if their makeup is just right.
One thing to know about Smart Objects is how useful they can be if you will be resizing objects. In the image below, you can see the difference between an object that has been converted to a Smart Object and one that has not. Once scaled down, BACK UP again and you can see how the Smart Object maintained its resolution, whereas the other became highly pixelated and unusable.
Having pets can be like having four-legged children. We lavish attention on them and give them treats. We also love to take their photographs and show them off in our homes or to family and friends. However, capturing great pet shots can be difficult. Pets don’t necessarily co-operate, and many factors contribute to a high quality portrait.
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.
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.
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.
The images of airplane traffic, including takeoffs and landings, at Terminal 3 were taken from the top of the control tower and depict a perfect 24-hour period. You’ll notice that the terminal acts as an hour hand on the little planet clock and actually makes a full rotation in real time, so you can determine the time each frame was taken.
We all suffer from artist’s block at some point. But knowing how to combat that creative slump before it even happens will keep you working toward your goals.
