Theatrical lighting produces stunning photographs that look like stills from Hollywood films. But these types of images can be made using common photo equipment.

All of us have seen timelapse photography sequences. Timelapses of sunsets, construction, the Aurora Borealis, etc. They’re beautiful, often very dramatic, and the best part is that they’re not very hard to do. Potentially, they can get very difficult depending on the changing light and you subject(s). But capturing a basic timelapse is actually very simple.
Timelapse videos are awesome, and tilt-shift lenses are awesome, and when you put them together, you create something amazing. But tilt-shift lenses are not exactly something just anyone can buy. They’re very expensive, and it’s hard to justify investing that amount of money into one lens. Luckily, we have an alternative: Photoshop.

Most of you already know what causes it, but for those who don’t, the “red-eye” effect is the result of your flash being too close to the lens. When the light source is close to the lens, like with an on camera flash, when the flash is fired, the light goes from the flash into the pupil of the subject’s eye and straight back out into the camera’s lens.
