In our post, 8 Beginners Tips to Improve #Art Technique, we shared some tips to expand your technique and #creativity. One of those tips was about having a relatively clean, functional space to work in, but it’s important to note that not all artists are their most creative in such surroundings. Read about these #creative spaces, here: http://bit.ly/1bwxwHE
Every artist has their own style and preferred environment and in this post we’re sharing images of famous artist studios through the generations.

Whether you’re just starting out as a #photographer or want to add a new style of #photography to your portfolio, night photography presents a range of unique possibilities and challenges. The subject matter for #nightphotography includes everything from the night sky to car light trails through city streets, but without the right technique, your camera can’t hope to capture what you see with your eyes. Fortunately, we have a few tips to get you started in the dazzling world of low light and night photography and give you a solid foundation as you move forward in this genre.

Scout first

Unless you have night vision goggles, it’s difficult to see at night, so scout out your night photography locations in advance. During the daytime, look for locations with interesting architecture and lights to shoot and take notes about what appeals to you in the scene so you can reference them later. If you’re planning on photographing traffic and traffic lights, find the busiest roads and research the highest traffic times. Always find a safe, out of the way spot to photograph night traffic and scenes. Read more, here: http://bit.ly/1QoWwkM

#Pinterest users know how much time just seems to vanish when they’re browsing through pins for everything from recipes to humor, but for #photographers, Pinterest can be a valuable tool for finding image inspiration. Using Pinterest properly for photography inspiration takes some practice and the ability to limit your time browsing so you have more time to actually shoot #photos.

Capturing Rain in Photos: http://bit.ly/1DoDHZq

Excerpt:

According to photojournalist Jim Richardson from National Geographic, “when it starts to rain, good photographers head out to make pictures.” This might sound contradictory to what you want to do when it’s raining (which is huddle inside where it’s dry), but in truth, you can capture some amazing shots in the rain. There are of course some tricks to achieving good rain photographs because the rain can appear dreary, dull, gray and even invisible in images, which is the opposite of what you’re trying to achieve. With a little help from an experienced photographer like Jim Richardson, you may soon find yourself looking forward to rain.

Protect your camera

No one cares if the photographer gets wet (except the photographer) but it’s never a good thing to get a normal camera wet. Protect your gear from the rain by purchasing one of the millions of rain covers and having it with you for wet shoots. Jim Richardson’s cover of choice is the Storm Jacket from Vortex Media because it finds it simple and effective in a variety of wet situations. If you find yourself shooting in the rain without a proper rain cover, a gallon-size bag with a hole for your lens to poke through works in a pinch. Read more, here: http://bit.ly/1DoDHZq

Advice from a professional photographer

Professional photographer, Richard Silver, provided these tips for travel photography:

"As a travel Photographer I always do my research before I go on any trip. I look for iconic historical architecture, modern buildings, churches and any unique structures. I also love to photograph libraries. A useful app that I have is Magic Hour which tells you when the sun sets and rises. For my series “Time Slice” I find this app to be most helpful in deciding what time to go shoot." Read the entire article, here: http://bit.ly/1FpDh4C
Take a different approach to your travel photos and capture images that illustrate your personal adventures, memories, and stories with a few helpful tips.

Even the best #photographers struggle to capture images that compare to the feeling of actually being at the shoot location. However, with today’s technology, panoramic or wide-angle photography grows closer every day to creating a full sensory experience in an image. #Panoramic photography captures a wide perspective of a given landscape through the use of an ultra-wide lens or by combining several shots utilizing software such as AutoStitch or Photoshop. The result of this technique are images truly unique and breathtaking that give a sense of actually being in the photograph.

It’s no easy thing to capture a set of images so perfectly it’s possible to stitch them back together in processing. While using a wide-lens makes the process easier, there’s still a special art to this photography technique. When done correctly, panoramic photos present a nearly complete view of a landscape, whether it’s rolling hills or an energetic urban jungle. The goal of this type of photography is to create images that are anything but flat. With massive composites, 360-degree rotation, interactive controls and advanced software programs, photographers reveal high-quality visual masterpieces that take images to a stunning new level.

One of the latest #photography crazes is called #Rooftopping and it involves thrill-seeking (or just plain crazy) photographers ascending to the top of city skyscrapers to capture stunning, vertigo-inducing shots. These photographers don’t just go and hang out with all the tourists in the designated viewing areas; they push the limits and often break the law by climbing to great heights and leaning over edges to shoot breathtaking downward-angled views.

A crusader for this dizzying and dangerous form of photography, Tom Ryaboi from Toronto, has produced stunning images for this craze from climbing over 100 buildings. The process of capturing these shots requires avoiding security and closed circuit security cameras, but according to Ryaboi, it’s worth it because “It’s a pure rush of adrenaline."

Creating #art that looks so real you think you can reach out and touch a flower or step right into the scene is no easy feat. Now imagine taking that type of talent and applying it to a rather unlikely area: the sidewalk. That’s exactly what talented a rising number of #artists now do as they create 2D chalk masterpieces so amazingly 3D, they fool the eye and make people step back in surprise.

Imagine turning a corner and suddenly finding a huge, icy chasm stretching down before you that makes you leap back in fear. Such is the talent of these visual artists as they combine optical illusion and hyperrealism in 3D street art unlike anything seen before. Their artwork is hypnotic, impressive, and bewildering. The hours they spend creating captivating illusions leaves their brushes, hands, knees, and clothing smeared with a rainbow of colors that almost make them part of the artwork. Yet this type of ingenious “mess” is what inspires talented artists to create more and bigger pieces. Read more, here: http://bit.ly/1EYzAjx

A key element that elevates the images of #photographers is having a good eye for #composition. By applying the basic ideas of quality composition one at a time, you’ll improve your #photography technique and capture impressive images. It’s important to remember as you hone your craft, that it takes persistence, practice, and patience to improve your composition skills. With some essential concepts to help you get started, you’ll soon see the world in a completely new way through the lens of your camera.

Understand your #lenses

While you may have multiple lenses in your gear bag, if you’ve never taken the time to understand their use individually, you’re missing the bigger picture. Spend time learning one lens at a time so you can discover the exact affect they each have on a photo’s appearance. A fixed lens is a good place to start, but a zoom lens can work too if you can set it to a specific focal length. When you use a single focal length without the ability to zoom in and out, you can fully appreciate its characteristic and learn how to apply it during shoots. Read more, here: http://bit.ly/1Nb2qld

They have high end machinery, most of the times customers coming in have no clue how printing tech works thus are themselves confused as to what they want. Also note, always ask for text print and pay for it as well, supplies are used for test prints. If you work with them, they will work with you and BTW as for Doug if he is still there.

I can't agree with all the bad reviews. I had several good experiences recently with hi-res digital photo printing and mounting. I had one order issue but it was addressed and remedied quickly and to my satisfaction.

TRUST THE BAD RATINGS!!! This place is horrible. They printed my image out so dark it had NO detail. This is after refusing my request to review the print before they mounted it. When I tried to reason with him, the rude owner Kumar Baboo told me: "You dont want to see me get mad. I'm known for this. Get out of my shop." Then he walked away to and refused to talk to me. Unbelievable. I have to contest with my credit card and file a police report. Paid for a print and have nothing to show!!!!
