One of the most important aspects in composing a great photo lies in directing the viewer’s eye to exactly the place we want to highlight. There are a number of ways to do this while taking the shot: using leading lines, controlling the depth of field, using a tilt shift lens, etc.
One of the hardest difficulties in photography has always been to pick the best spot for picture taking, especially if you needed to take portraits. Finding the right location to ensure that you get the best results for portrait photography can be pretty challenging.
If you’re looking to take your landscape photography to new levels, you’re in luck. You don’t need to run out and purchase expensive new gear in order to create amazing landscapes; one of the best ways to create visually stunning landscapes, is by mastering the art of composition.
This is my favorite type of photography. I don’t claim to be an expert, but I have lots of experience. I haven’t taken my macro lens off my camera since I bought it a few months ago.
Street photography can be intimidating for anyone. Even seasoned street photographer Eric Kim acknowledges the challenge. In this video, he pours his heart out on how he started out as a street photographer, how he idolized masters like Henri Cartier-Bresson, and how his myth of the “decisive moment” was finally broken when he learned the truth behind some iconic images.
For every great brand in the consumer market, there’s always at least one rival keeping users divided. Coca Cola has Pepsi, Nike has Adidas, McDonald’s has Burger King, and Apple and Microsoft have been duking it out for decades. The world of photography is no exception.
Most photographers will agree that images must be made with intention. And photographer George Diebold is not exception. In his full-length video workshop, Diebold shared the thought process behind his shooting and what drives him to make his images.
For many pro photographers, studio lights are an essential part of kit. As a portrait photographer, I can honestly say I’d never be without them. They allow you to control the light to a finite degree and open up endless creative possibilities.
The concept of bullet time is nothing new. If you have seen the gravity-defying (and seemingly physics defying) shot in The Matrix where the character played by Keanu Reeves dodges a bullet, you already know what I am talking about. It’s nothing more than several cameras capturing a perfectly timed shot of a moment that when played back, makes time seem frozen.
Large format photography is the oldest form of photography, and yet it is still practiced by many enthusiasts today, not only for its superior image quality, but also because it lends itself to a slower, more contemplative photographic style.
