If you prefer a good dose of humor mixed in with your photography tutorials, look no further. Kai, from over at DigitalRev, is here to teach us about using flash to capture dust, or in this case, baby powder, in mid-air.
It’s December, and the holidays are upon us. Whether you’re religious, atheist, or agnostic, it’s the perfect time of year to send out a friendly card to your friends and family to adorn their refrigerator with. Today we’re going to walk you through setting up the shoot, creating a solid composition, the post-processing procedure and even a little Photoshop magic to add that special personal touch.
Many space and photography enthusiasts have taken images from the International Space Station files to create some rather stunning timelapse videos of earth and space, but the video we see below, created with images from the Messenger spacecraft, give viewers a unique view of planet earth. As Messenger left the atmosphere on its way to Mercury, its Dual Imaging system captured hundreds of photos of earth, many of which we see in this sequence:
Getting started in glamour or fashion photography and need a few pointers on the process of it all? The team over at Tony Northrup‘s studio have put together a great video tutorial that walks through a full spectrum of things ranging from lighting, modeling tips, and post production. Even those with no plans for a future in fashion photography may learn a thing or two to use in other styles.
To some, the act of post processing is every bit of an art as the act of taking the actual photograph. In the case of architectural photographer, Irene Kung, one may even argue that is where her creative abilities are at their highest. Kung has called her photographs nothing more than snapshots, most of which are taken from the very same perspective as any other tourist would see them.
With all the amazing time lapse videos that have been making their way to the interwebs lately, you start to wonder if there is even an room for improvement anymore. Then a video like this surfaces and we become awestruck all over again
Using photography to convey a message or tell a story is one of the primary goals we strive to accomplish. Being able to do so is a skill that is not always as easy as it seems. Too often we find our photographs look contrived or far from the target of what we are attempting to express. In the following hour long seminar, Cig Harvey, a seasoned fine art photographer, shares with us the process and her motivations behind some of her most profound work.
I realize the title is a bit harsh, but it’s the reality. You can develop a regular and systematic way of backing up all your photos–or face losing them. If your photos are all on one laptop or PC, one day you’re going to push a button and nothing is going to happen, or you’ll get a cryptic error message on your screen that is the harbinger of doom.
Some extensive research to find the best camera to buy in five different categories: Budget Point-and-Shoot, Best Enthusiast Point-and-Shoot, Best Entry-Level DSLR, Best Semi-Pro DSLR, and Best Professional Full Frame DSLR.
Shooting portraits using a plain white background may initially sound a bit bland, but Mark Wallace is here to show us how to change it up by sculpting light–a skill that is helpful to photographers of any genre. In the brief 18 minute video tutorial, Wallace explains to viewers what a GOBO is and how to easily build one for yourself.
