Types of Photography Studio Backgrounds

Types of Photography Studio Backgrounds Photography studio backgrounds are a strange subject, because there is no correct or wrong answer to what you should use in your studio. However, many people seem to have a problem trying to decide what they should use as backgrounds. This is not a problem simply solved with a Google search, either. In fact, there is a good amount of conflicting information out there about what is the best background, when you should use a certain type of background, and other information, both relevant and irrelevant. All of this conflicting information can make choosing a background similar to choosing a...

[Video] MyAngryGirlfriend on: How to be a Pro-Photographer

[Video] MyAngryGirlfriend on: How to be a Pro-Photographer If you don’t get sarcasm then this video, from photographer and YouTube poster MyAngryGirlfriend, is not for you. She’s been “pissing people off since 1983″ and her latest video maybe aimed straight at you. It’s a sarcastic take on the DO’s and DON’Ts of shooting. Although it’s meant to be a humorous guide, you should take it seriously if you find yourself guilty of any of these points. via [ISO1200]...

Landscape Photography: Finding Locations and Landmarks

Landscape Photography: Finding Locations and Landmarks This may seem like a redundant title, considering the entire principle behind landscape photography is finding locations and landmarks, but it’s surprising how many photographers who want to try landscape photography do not know where to begin.

The first thing you need to do is identify which type of landscape you are more interested in shooting and what is available in your area. The...

[BTSV] The Lies Behind the Lens: Will You Shoot Anything for $? Check out this clip from, “Bigger Faster Stronger”, where photographer Rich Schaff explains how some companies hire him to take before and after photos on the same day, for misleading supplement advertisements. Is this why some photographers get into photography? Is this even legal? I mean, how far are you willing to go to make a buck? Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to disparage shooters who make a living doing this type of work but is this the kind of thing shooters actually aspire towards? Why did you get into photography? Is there anything you won’t shoot? What would it take...
