Sure, you can spend thousands of dollars on studio lighting gear that will help you get great shots. But for about $30, you can pick up a cool lighting accessory – Venetian blinds – that will help you create creative lighting effects even when you are shooting with only one light. I got mine at The Home Depot.
I’ve been primarily photographing kids and families for several years now. I recently decided that I wanted to create a shoot that was unique, without being too trendy. The resulting images would stand the test of time, as well as express a lot of emotion and personality.
Recently, I had the great fortune to discuss this topic with two master photographers, Dewitt Jones and Tony Sweet. I recorded the interviews to share with other photographers who would like to know what it takes to reach the top.
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.
Chase takes us for a spin with the brand spanking new Nikon D7000! Here is an excerpt and video from Chases blog:
"A while back I got call from the Nikon mothership which put the very first HDdSLR–the Nikon D90 – into my hands months before the world had seen that technology. I won’t ever forget that experience. That little camera kicked off this whole craze of photo and video convergence that we’re swimming in today.
