Dragunov takes pictures of the subway station because he is attracted to the geometric symmetry that he finds in elements such as the elevators and tracks. He wants to make those who see his photography doubt that such a subway exists in real life.
Many people are interested in photography but are unsure if they have the skills to become good at it. It is important to keep in mind that it is especially helpful to learn anything and everything possible about setting up your shot. This article will give you a few tips and hints to improve your photography skills.
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.
Like any style of photography, real estate photography is tough. There is a lot more to it than having a nice camera and well cared for property to photograph. The countless amount of techniques and tricks you must know to pull off a great photo of a multi-million dollar property makes it a daunting task.
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.
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.
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.
Limited resolution wasn’t Puymorin’s only handicap. The camera’s SD card slot was broken, meaning he could only shoot about 14 images before the built-in memory filled up. Additionally, the LCD screen was “barely larger than a postage stamp.” How about that? Some of the locations that he shot in were a bit claustrophobic and bland, to say the least.
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.
There are countless light modifiers on the market designed for specific purposes. Photographer Andrea Belluso, however, goes outside the box and shows us how to be more creative with light-shaping tools.
