Splash photography can be a fun project to sharpen your strobist skills without having to invest in a lot of equipment, it’s also a great project to work on when the weather outside is less than desirable, as Gavin mentions at the beginning of the clip.
Your pictures of your friends, parents, children, or grandchildren don’t always come out the way you’d like, and you are frequently frustrated by the harsh shadows on their faces when you photograph them outdoors. But you want them to look good, because you care about them (or you wouldn’t be taking their picture, right?).
There are plenty of selfies floating around that go questionably too far. But one high school student has set a new bar for inappropriate self portraits. On a recent field trip to the University of Alabama, the young girl snapped a quick photo of herself smiling for the camera next to a cadaver, which was part of the university’s medical education program.

But “the Beaver State” is actually one of the most geographically diverse regions of the United States. Western Oregon boasts a west coast marine climate, while Central to Eastern Oregon consists of a semi-arid climate, complete with deserts.
Rules tend to get a lot of flak, but deep down inside, most of us know that rules are designed to make life better. With photography, it’s no exception. The rules of photography are based on general principles that create great photos. Sometimes though, the composition calls for the rules to be broken.
