In a role that is open until October 22, the United Kingdom’s Cabinet Office is looking for a photographer to document and “promote the work of Ministers and the wider government visually.” The job involves international travel, constantly changing requirements, and frequent after-hours work.

Given the success other high-profile government photographers like Pete Souza, it’s likely fair to say the Britsh government sees the value of good publicity. The job description, which you can view for yourself at the U.K. Civil Service Job Board, reads like a mirror to what Souza described as being required of

Sometimes, spooky, creepy Halloween-type photos walk up to you with a demonic smile and say, “Hey, I’ve got it half set up for you! Bring it home!” And so it was at this Arizona ghost town. I was walking around at night with one of the volunteers who stays at the ghost town. I came […]

Blue hour

It’s time for #TravelTuesday with Dave (I know it’s Monday; deal with it), and today, I want to touch on a landscape photography term that’s used throughout photography: blue hour. Let’s not waste any time, here goes.

Blue hour and golden hour go hand in hand. They aren’t accurately measured as being an hour, but we know them as the hour before and after the sun sets and rises when we have the best light for photography. The reason golden hour is so beautiful is because the light from the sun diffracts through the atmosphere as its beams travel through Continue reading “Blue hour”

Kobe Bryant Law Bans Photos of Dead by First Responders

Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




California Governor Gavin Newsom has signed a new “Kobe Bryant” law that makes it illegal for first responders to shoot unauthorized photos of dead bodies at the scene of accidents and crimes.

The law resulted from the aftermath of the helicopter crash that killed NBA superstar Kobe Bryant and eight others on January 26, 2020. Reports emerged soon after that eight sheriff deputies had snapped and shared graphic photos of the victims, leading Bryant’s widow Vanessa to sue the Los Angeles County sheriff for negligence, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

This is my favourite $1 lighting modifier

I’ve always been drawn to interesting looking light. The simple, soft and flat light of softboxes and other standard modifiers rarely hold my attention and I’ve often felt like that softbox lighting doesn’t exist outside of the studio. It’s always looked a little too clinical for me. We’re shown interesting light all of the time […]

#TravelTuesday still isn’t quite what it should be, but then again, nothing is at the moment. Something else that’s adapted to the change in the world around us is this year’s Worldwide Photo Walk, and that’s what I want to explore today. I’m Dave Williams, and I’m here every Tuesday on ScottKelby.com.

Yesterday, Scott showed a video explaining the reasons for the Photo Walk, one of which is the Springs of Hope Kenya orphanage. There are other reasons to get involved, but today, I want to address the things that may be missing from a regular photo

How to Build a Giant Soft Box on the Cheap

Cinematographer Shane Hurlbut of the Hurlbut Academy recently shared a great DIY tutorial in which he shows you how to build a giant soft box using just some foam core and a few lengths of 1×3-inch wood. The result allows you to create a large, soft light source without breaking the bank.

This video is actually part of a 30-lesson “free sampler” that the Hurlbut Academy put up on its website, and while the target audience is definitely filmmakers, there’s no reason why many of those lessons couldn’t come in very handy for photographers as well. This giant soft box
