Here is a chance to learn to some principles of lighting for portraiture and beauty from former teacher, Joey Quintero who is employed at Impact Studio Lighting. Plus, the hour and half long lesson is totally free of charge. During the course, Quintero will teach viewers about an assortment of lighting modifiers and their practical applications in addition to the more technical side of lighting which deals with lighting ratios, color wheels, and more.
Quitting is underrated, according to photographer Chase Jarvis. Despite the stigma that surrounds being “a quitter,” Jarvis happily admits to being one and recognizes its usefulness in his career path. He quit medical school, then quit a PhD program in Philosophy of Art to pursue his creative dreams.
As Winter approaches and snow vacations are already at sight, one just simply gets the will and inspiration to shoot incredible and mesmerizing pictures from our snow expeditions. But ever wonder how exactly you should do it?
This year, photographer Steve McCurry was put in charge of creating the 2013 Pirelli calendar, a prestigious calendar given only to select VIPs and Pirelli customers. This year’s calendar features models with great causes ranging from environmental issues to helping keep children educated, and is located in the beautiful Rio de Janeiro.
Roger Brooks teaches us the fine points of interior photography in this comprehensive and informative walk-through. An experienced architectural photographer on the Vancouver scene, he shows us his approach to the capturing of the inside of a home, with techniques valuable not only to real-estate and commercial photography, but applicable in photographing any static scene:
In this tutorial, photographer Jay P. Morgan demonstrates how to balance strobe lighting with the ambient lighting created by a sunset to compose a striking portrait. Taking advantage of both natural and artificial lighting, Morgan starts by setting his background exposure, adds a key light on his subject, adds a strobe light to illuminate a prop in the background, and lastly a light panel to reflect light back onto his subject’s face.
When you hear the word New York City, nature is typically not one of the first things to come to mind. However, photographer Jamie Scott’s latest photography project involves just that. Scott spent six month taking photos in Central Park during the seasonal changes into autumn to create an amazing timelapse:
Bright colourful and alien looking, dragonflies (and damselflies) are some of the most unusual creatures you or I are likely to come across, moving at seemingly impossible speeds and always seeming to be on the go, these insects can be a challenge to even the most experienced photographer, but there are ways to increase your chances of getting the wall perfect shot. Hopefully here you will gain a much better understanding of how you could achieve these shots yourself.
When it comes to macro photography one of my favourite subjects to shoot are moths, there are so many species (in the UK alone there are hundreds of Macro moths and into the thousands for micro moths) that can easily be attracted into your garden using moth traps. They come in a vast array of colours and sizes from the gaudy pink and green Elephant Hawk Moth to the dull Clouded Drab, but photographing them is not always easy, and presents a number of issues, which I hope to help with below.
My aim here is to give an understanding, there is far too much to detail in full on one page, in fact there are plenty of books written just on exposure so I hope you will forgive me for keeping it short but hopefully to the point. It is worth noting that this is aimed at those who can alter their camera settings, those that can only use automatic settings should learn this but unfortunately won’t really be able to change much
