Brian Matthew Hart has come up with a clever way to exhibit his light paintings for the 4th annual Northern Spark, which takes place in the Minneapolis/St. Paul region. He has discovered a fascinating way to record his work in progress which, when watched as a video, appear to be twinkling lights. But if a viewer takes a long exposure photo of the video while it’s playing, it will reveal a light painting.
In our photographic careers, we inevitably face times where we must photograph our subjects in less than perfect circumstances. But have you ever tried to photograph a fighter jet in bright sun? Jay P. Morgan shows us his lighting process on an air force base shoot.
Wedding photographer Moshe Zusman shoots 15 to 20 very high-end weddings a year. Over the course of his career, he has learned the importance of lighting and posing to create perfect pictures that don’t need to be manipulated in Photoshop
Understanding Post-Processing is a unique educational tool from an award-winning travel photographer. You learn through action, by working on the 10 provided RAW files and following the steps in the 10 video tutorials. Every important technique is illuminated in more depth through the 52 additional examples that are de-constructed. The knowledge you’ll gain will save you countless hours.
If you’re new to the studio, you know that finding good lighting setups isn’t easy. It’s more complicated than sticking two strobes at 45 degree angles and firing away. And if you’re a more experienced studio shooter, you’re always looking for new techniques and different lighting setups to try.
Of all the crucial factors in photography, nothing is more important than light. Without light (whether natural or artificial) there is no photograph! The central tenants of photography – ISO, shutter speed and aperture are all focused around controlling the amount of light that enters the camera.
There aren’t actually any butterflies involved; the name refers to the shape of the shadow created by the overhead light. Wallace sets a light up on an axis directly above the model and above the angle of the camera so that it shines directly down on the model’s face. This direct light creates a butterfly-like shadow beneath her nose.
When we were first introduced to Ian Ruhter back in 2012, he was embarking on a nationwide photography tour in with his uniquely large camera. That is, a huge delivery truck that he converted into a wet plate collodion camera and mobile lab. Now, two years later, Ruhter is still at it with even bigger ambitions and goals than before.
When it comes to photographing children and animals in a natural setting, getting the perfect shot can be tricky. You have to be able to match the children’s energy and effectively capture the kids, the light, and the scene to portray that energy and the feeling of just being a kid. Nikon professional photographer Tamara Lackey leads us behind the scenes of a photo shoot with three playful, energetic children and their dog in a busy, loud park.
French photographer and artist Philippe Echaroux has been working on an ongoing photography project that puts a twist on your typical light painting.
