Using a 70-200mm Camera Lens for Good Compositions


This post is by Sunny Shrestha from PictureCorrect

The lenses we use work as our eyes when taking photos. So, what we see and how we compose our photos is dependent on what focal length we use. For instance, we’re presented with a wider field of view when using a wide-angle lens. This can make it a bit more challenging to isolate the subject. On the other hand, telephoto lenses have a narrow field of view. This makes it easier to convey the story you have in mind for the viewers. Going into more depth on the subject, landscape photographer Nigel Danson explains how a telephoto lens can

What Is the Role of the Filmmaker in a Time of Unprecedented Upheaval?

We are living in interesting times, to say the least. In the grand scheme of this nation’s history and the history of the world, there may be only so many moments that compare to the ones we are passing through today.

Prior generations fought similar battles and faced similar challenges. They have in fact faced this very same battle time and again. But there is something very different about this time right now and it relates to you. You, the filmmaker.

Do filmmakers have an obligation to soak up the truth of the world they live in? How important is Continue reading “What Is the Role of the Filmmaker in a Time of Unprecedented Upheaval?”

Think Like a Painter in Your Approach to Photography


This post is by Rick Sammon from PetaPixel


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Consider this: think like a painter. Painting is basically an additive process: the painter adds paint to a canvas. Photography is basically subtractive: the photographer, through careful composition and cropping (or cloning in the digital darkroom), subtracts unwanted or distracting elements from a scene to create a vision — or impression — of a scene.

Sure, painters subtract and photographers add, but the additive/subtractive analysis is mostly accurate.

Here is something else about painters: they think selectively, selectively controlling the brightness, shadows and highlights, contrast, color, sharpness, and so on, in a painting — every inch of the painting. Most

It’s Time to End the Terms ‘Slave’ and ‘Master’ in Photography


This post is by Theresa Bear from PetaPixel

There are many things about the photography industry that need to change to include our black community. One huge thing is a button on every strobe, light pack, and flash unit made in the photo industry called “slave” mode.

Essentially it is used to instructs a flash unit to monitor incoming light, and fire when it senses the light produced by another flash unit firing unit called “master” to fire.

I was taught flash photography at Rocky Mountain School of Photography by Doug Johnson, who right away addressed this.

He said that we would be using the terms “receiver and
