If you are an automobile freak it is easy to lose focus in the midst such beauties. This is where you need to pull yourself together and pay attention. For those who are newbies or basically trying their hand at photographing such events for the first time, here are some invaluable pointers.
Once in a very great while, we photographers come across a work that is truly magnificent, one that both inspires and leaves us a little bit amazed. Paul Richardson‘s recent timelapse video of Paris is one such work.
Photographers are known to go to extremes to get the shot. Sometimes those extremes are much further than others. Take Chris Higgins, for example. The professional caving photographer crawls his way through dark caves and slithers through cave opening so small it seems impossible for a human to fit through them.
Vincent van Gogh had it right: a clear, starry night can make a gorgeous background. However, photographers often experience lighting and focusing difficulties when trying to incorporate stars into their images.
Advancing technology has improved image quality, and while digital noise isn’t as much of a problem as it once was, it is still an issue that needs attention in some photographs.
When shooting outdoors, the sun often creates overly bright highlights and harsh shadows on the skin. A good portrait photographer knows just what to pull out of his camera bag to help him combat this commonly overlooked aspect of outdoor photo shoots.
Your camera is actually nothing more than a box with a hole in it. Yes, all that money you’ve spent and that is basically what you’ve got. The basics of a camera have changed very little since day one. You have a box with a hole in it and you control how much light is allowed into it.
New Zealand—both the nature lover and photographer’s dream. An island nation known for its utterly breath taking landscapes—from deep fjords, sky high waterfalls, ancient glaciers and rolling hills. It is hard to capture the true beauty and essence of a place on film.
Traditionally, light modifiers for small speedlights tend to use silver interiors. That makes the light, which is already punchy because of the small source, snappier. To make the light a lot more forgiving and certainly flattering, replace the silver interior with a white one.
Ever since the first digital cameras became commercially available, the technology has moved along at an alarmingly quick pace. For those of us who work as pros, it’s a given that the minute we buy a DSLR of any shape or size it will become obsolete. But, of course, as pros we must keep up to date with technology and make sure that we are using the right equipment for the job.
