Exposure Tips in Photography

Exposure Tips in Photography “Following The Tide” captured by Mark Broughton (Click Image to See More From Mark Broughton) Exposure is a term you will hear a lot in photography. It is used to describe the amount of light traveling through the lens and camera body, eventually collected onto the film or image sensor. Correct exposure is obtained through a delicate balance between shutter speed, aperture, and the sensitivity of the film or image sensor (this is generally referred to as ISO). There is a correct exposure (objectively speaking) for every scene. For the purpose of this hub, we will focus on the...

How to Make the Most from a Test Session

Setting up a test session can be as easy as taking a friend to a park — if it’s the right friend and the right park. A test session is for the purpose of trying out a new technique or piece of equipment, or to shoot something that you hope will end up in your portfolio. But just because it’s a test, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t adequately prepare for it. The better you plan, the better images you’ll get. Try to think of everything you’ll need in advance.  I brainstorm until I have five to 10 good shot ideas, then I ask myself which are the three best. I plan on shooting...

Photoblogging – How to Start a Photoblog

Photoblogging – How to Start a Photoblog Photo captured by Stephan Chee (Click Image to See More From Stephan Chee) Over the past couple years I have heard about people blogging and I honestly never paid much attention and just had no interest in it. To me blogging, was for vain or bored people – and I was certainly neither. Then a little over a year ago I heard the term photoblog and I was suddenly interested in blogging again. Why do people photoblog? After some research I learned that photoblogging has really exploded across the internet. Now more than ever there are multiple options for affordable digital cameras and a...

Tips if the Bride and Groom are Camera Shy

Tips if the Bride and Groom are Camera Shy “Love and Passion” captured by Olesia Kliots (Click Image to See More From Olesia Kliots) How do you deal with a stiff bride and groom when it comes to the portrait time? Well, I have a few tricks up my sleeve, but they all boil down to the same thing: familiarize yourself with the people you’re photographing and do whatever you can to get them to relax, to know that this isn’t serious time, this is a time to let loose and be themselves. Here are a few things you can do… 1. Most weddings go on in the summer, so if you see that your bride is perspiring a bit, tell the groom...

How to Make HDR Images

Church & Cathedral Photos: Use a Slow Shutter Speed

Church & Cathedral Photos: Use a Slow Shutter Speed “The Cathedral” captured by Ryan (Click Image to See More From Ryan) Finally, the local photo club had arranged for us to take pictures inside the beautiful Our Lady of Victory Basilica. I was so excited! In my nearly fifty years, I had never once even peeked in through the doorway. Once inside, I understood why documentaries had been made about this grand church. It was so ornate. Michelangelo could have painted these ceilings. Still, after more than 100 years, the colors were so bold and beautiful they could have been painted yesterday. The marble and gold glistened in the...
