Sometimes it takes time to see what your images mean in the grand scheme of things. Discovering that theme can lead to powerful stories that can inspire others. Photographer Angela Strassheim‘s latest exhibit, Project Atrium, illustrates the transition from a child to adult.
On September 6, 2012, Stephen Confer captured this image of the Space Shuttle Endeavour riding piggyback on a 747, accompanied by two other jets which look like bodyguards.
If you’ve decided you’d like to get more into photography, or you’re ready to make a career from your photos, you’ll probably want to make sure that you’ve got the right camera for the photography you want to do.
Most of us hanging around picture-sharing websites have seen light painting done with steel wool. It’s looks cool, but it’s become a bit commonplace.
Since we’ve just passed the holidays—the time of the year when we usually spend lots of time with our loves ones—we thought we’d highlight some photos of beautiful families in the animal world.
The International Space Station moves incredibly fast in orbit around the Earth. In fact, its average speed is 17,150 miles per hour (27,600 km/h). To put that in perspective, the average bullet speed is 1,700 miles per hour. That’s 10 times faster than an average bullet.
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.
