Macro photography (or photomacrography or macrography, and sometimes macrophotography), is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size.
Mike shoots with a Canon 5D Mark II, along with a host of lenses, including Canon’s 70-200 f/2.8L IS for zooming and Sigma’s 17-50 f/2.8 IS for closer portrait angles. For a strong variety of shots, you need a strong arsenal of lenses.
The challenge of using a cheap camera can keep a photographer sharp by forcing him or her to think things out more thoroughly in order to get a good shot. As Kai mentions in the video, things often go wrong during photo shoots, and it’s up to the photographer to deal with the blows as they come and figure out how to work around them.
Infrared photography is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful areas of photographic art, and there are many ways in which you can shoot IR frames. However, if you have a DSLR camera and you are not willing to invest in state of the art equipment designed especially for infrared photography, then you should know that you can easily convert your camera.
In December 2007, TIME Magazine named Russian president Vladimir Putin as Person of the Year. Photographer Platon was flown to Moscow for the shoot. He approached the massive fortress-like wall covered with snipers. At gunpoint, he was led through the gate and told to wait until Putin arrived; when he finally did, he walked in surrounded by a posse of translators, advisors, and bodyguards.
March 20 was the spring equinox, the first official day of spring in 2014. While it didn’t immediately warm things up around Chicago, it did line up the sun’s rising and setting perfectly with the city’s east-west streets.
The selfie craze may have reached its zenith with Ellen’s most-rewteeted Oscar pic, but that hasn’t stopped Seattle-based YouTube comedian Jason Rodjanapanyakul from keeping the trend alive.
One of the hardest obstacles when shooting outdoors is balancing a correct exposure in extreme sunlight. When there’s heavy white snow on the ground, it’s even harder. Luckily, there’s a mathematical equation, dubbed the Sunny 16 Rule, that solved the problem over 50 years ago.
Since many other photographers choose to cut back on their selling and advertising during difficult times, your chance for greater visibility is improved. If you choose to be proactive, there is more opportunity for you to connect with buyers, because there are fewer people selling.
Paré’s talent as a photographer can’t be denied, even if Migneault’s contrived meditative stoicism comes off a bit goofy sometimes. The video, entitled WindScale, certainly does make you want to grab a tent and head off on a good old American road trip.
