GoPro cameras are awesome for adventurers (and just about anyone on the go), but the thing about adventures is that things happen. And though it may not be likely that your wonder camera will be eaten by a fox, it’s actually quite easy to drop it while filming underwater, and if that’s in the ocean, well, there goes your camera.
Once Peterson had selected all the photos he would be using for the timelapse (presumably well into the thousands) he set his sights to editing them together to create a moving image. This can be using a few different programs such as Adobe Photoshop and After Effects, or a more dedicated program such as Photolapse.
If you’re serious about bringing out the best in your photos, you need to think about retouching. Retouching lets you subtly enhance your images, removing distractions and making your subjects look like themselves on their best day. This new tutorial course is designed to get you up to speed on the type of retouching that is very important to portrait & wedding photographers.
There is much confusion among new photographers as to which format, JPEG or RAW, is best to use. The problem is there’s no one correct answer to the dilema. To be able to know when to use either of the formats, it’s best to have a solid understanding of each of their drawbacks and advantages. The following article will explore both sides of shooting in either RAW and JPEG image formats.
Lens compression is a bit of a misnomer. It doesn’t compress anything, really—rather, it’s a type of lens distortion, like a fisheye or wide-angle lens. It affects how close or far backgrounds look in an image, even if the subject is in exactly the same spot.

Interrupting an otherwise picturesque shot of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, one graceful dog leapt up and caught a flying rubber chicken in his mouth, aligning himself perfectly against the curvature of one of America’s greatest architectural landmarks.
If the couple is dancing fast and you have the flash bouncing to expose their faces, you will see that the flash freezes the action on their faces and that they in sharp focus. The people in the background may be blurred, since they are being exposed with the ambient light. This makes for some interesting and creative photos.
When nature photographer Lassi Rautiainen set out to spend some time in the northern Finland wilderness observing and photographing bears and their relationships with other animals, he was hopeful to gather some worthwhile data. But he probably never thought he would be witness to the heartwarming story told in this photograph.
Weddings call for many traditions, some expected and some very unusual. Take into account the different cultural backgrounds and the wedding ceremony gets even longer. The Trash the Dress tradition is one that takes place not on the day of the wedding itself, but on a separate occasion. It is a style of wedding photography that involves contrasting the elegant wedding gowns with a harsher background.
