One of several things to keep in mind is that a sleeping baby is much easier to pose and photograph than one who is awake. Cotta uses white noise as a lullaby to keep the baby from waking. You should also turn off your camera’s focus confirm beep. Most new cameras have a silent mode that reduces the burst speeds but is much quieter. If you’re working with a mirrorless system, just turn off any sounds and you’re set.
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.
We all know about the rule of thirds by now, but there’s a lot more to framing a photo. This video by photographer Wayne Moran is a simple and yet absorbing round up of a few less obvious compositional techniques that are guaranteed to lift your photography to the next level.
There are many ways of removing wrinkles in Photoshop, and there are even third party plugins that do the job for you. However, the goal isn’t always complete removal since that can leave your subjects looking like they came out of a cartoon.
The advantage of using a really deep parabolic umbrella in a shoot like this is that it’s, well, deep.

In this case the background had a lot of distracting elements, such as paint shifts, banners, and items that really did not add anything to the images.
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.
Dancing is one of the finest arts ever known to man. The graceful movements, the poetry in motion and the music. Everything about dancing is a feast for the senses – especially for the eyes. The lure of dancing is simply irresistible, which is why a lot of photographers love making it their central subject.
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.
At only 22-years-old, Nguyen Dinh An easily rolls, kicks, spins, and dances his way around the photo shoot. The seemingly strange behavior is actually part of Nguyen’s special technique to put his subjects at ease. His acrobatic ninja rolls and Michael Jackson moonwalks trigger genuine smiles and laughs.
