Tips and Solutions

Whether you convince a friend to pose for the camera, or hire a model to bring an idea to life, working with a live model presents challenges that a photographer must be ready for, and not all of them involve using a camera. Using models as your subjects is a great way to get exciting images, but it can be intimidating if it’s your first time.

Hands-on Review

For the past few weeks I have been shooting with the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 cameras with both of the available lenses for the system, the 16mm f/2.8 and the 18-55 kit zoom. I have to say that the first week with the cameras were a bit hit and miss.

I'm the kind of girl who wears her heart on her sleeve. So much so, sometimes it gets me in trouble. My style of photography, I believe, encompasses who I am as a person and also as a photographer. It's almost a never-ending question—as in life—I'm extremely curious and inquisitive.

I’ve been intrigued by the iPhone photography of Dan Burkholder and others. I love the weathered look, and the apps are getting quite cogent, enabling us to create large files for print. Now, by large files, we’re not talking 20x30 inches, but we can certainly make up to 13x19-inch prints, that can have a fine art, abstract and saleable look.

The very best way to improve as a photographer does not involve any particular piece of gear or course of study, nor does it involve apprenticing yourself to a master photographer. Impoverishing yourself by working on nothing but photography as something of a photographic "monk" will not do it, either. While all of these things may improve your photography, the best way is much simpler, yet for many photographers it seems much harder.

Tornado warnings. 60 mile-per-hour winds. Rain. Lightning. Generally, when you hear these weather alerts, the last thing you are thinking about is going out to shoot. But time and again I have learned the hard way, that if you don't give it a try, you may miss a great shot.

I shot my first wedding in October 2006. Back then, I simply hoped for the best. Hoped the wedding wasn't delayed, hoped the family members remained nearby for formal pictures and hoped I received a timeline for the day in advance. I'll never forget the terror of standing outside—in a garden—after my first wedding on a pitch-black night for the family formal pictures.
