Do you want to start making money with your photography, but you’re not quite sure if you’re ready? The first thing you need to get started is confidence. Here are eight easy steps from Jay P. Morgan to help you become a strong, confident, money-making photographer.
Manni shows us how to apply a Nashville effect using Photoshop. Basically, the effect gives a bit of a faded, burnt out or retro effect to your images. If you’re an Instagram junkie you may have already used it using one of the preset tools.
A ring light is like the king of portrait lights. It creates a beautiful, uniform light that illuminates the subject’s face. But what makes it truly ideal for portraiture is that it allows the photographer to shoot with a shallow depth of field.
As a photographer, there are few things more satisfying than mastering a new photography technique. Learning new photography techniques can open up new possibilities, provide endless potential for inspiration, and can even help to get you out of a creative rut.
As with any kind of photography, product photography is all about the light. Getting great lighting for product shots can be somewhat tricky if you have only one light.
The bottom line with any photography learning experience is figuring out how to take great images. That is the result all of us are looking for. If we aren’t actually taking great photos then what’s the point of learning? By putting into practice some simple steps, your photography will improve immediately.
You may think diffusion filters are a thing of the past, but pro photographer Jay P. Morgan thinks they are starting to make a great comeback. In the video below, he compares three different Tiffen diffusion filters and breaks down the pros and cons of each.
In a world dominated by visuals, cellphone cameras, and hobby photographers, it can be tough to break into the photography industry. A bit of good trade advice, especially from a major industry player, is always welcomed.
Confused about flash sync speeds? Wondering why you can’t sync to your flash at high shutter speeds? If you answered yes, it turns out you are not alone.
When taking slow shutter speed shots, I sometimes use shutter priority mode on my camera, which is the Tv (time value) setting on my Canon camera and the S setting on Nikon cameras. And now with my camera in shutter priority mode, I’m going to slow my shutter speed down to 1/15 of a second to start. Depending if you’re shooting in daylight or dark, you might have to tweak your f-stop a bit to get the desired effect.
