Getting Started with Softboxes

Larry Becker of Kelby Media explains the importance in this video of using softboxes as you move your speedlights off camera in the studio. When you're trying to light your subject, a soft, diffused light is almost always going to look better than a harsh, pinpoint light that creates hard shadows and extremely bright areas. 

Digital Workflow: Working Efficiently to get You Back Behind the Camera

Today, photographers are spending more time at their computers than they are behind their cameras. While all that editing software is amazing, this also means that a lot of time is being spent away from the customers and making more money. Jeff Cable, who is one of our most requested speakers, has come up with a very efficient workflow process for anyone shooting a lot of images.

Finding Your Niche as a Wedding Photographer

Lisa Devlin discusses how she found a way to blend her style of shooting (alternative rock) into a saturated market (weddings) and make it work for all parties concerned.

In real estate the mantra is "location, location, location." For some photographers the same priority applies, but for wedding and portrait photographer Jerry Ghionis, it goes, "light, light, light." For him, light has the ability to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, and he sets out to prove it in this hundred-plus-minute presentation.

On-Camera Flash Buying Guide

An on-camera flash is an indispensible accessory for many photographers; it provides additional light when conditions become too dark to  handhold your camera comfortably, allows you to achieve more balanced exposures in daylight conditions, permits freezing of fast-moving subjects and can also be used to control or trigger other flash light sources.

An Affair to Remember, with Ryan Brenizer

If commercial photographers are like scientists in a laboratory, then wedding photographers are like MacGyver—it’s often not about what you can do, but what you can do in three minutes with everything working against you!

Perfect Light in Any Location

When the lighting is perfect, shooting a wedding is easy. But that doesn’t happen often, perhaps an hour outdoors at the end of a sunny day. What about the rest of the occasion? Professional photographer Moshe Zusman comes to the rescue with a series of solutions that can work in any location.

Telling the Story with Details

Wedding photography is obviously about the bride and groom, and their special day. While that story is told with photos of the lucky pair, and their guests, their memories of the event can be enhanced with images that might not be so obvious.
