Gee, that's just the equipment I take with me on every shoot!  LOL.

Michael Yearout, AIAP
I know, I know. It's about the photographer, not the gear. But if you can look at all the gear Getty is sending photographers to the Olympics with and not salivate, well, you're stronger than me.

I have always called this "visualization."  Meaning I could see what the image would look like after I processed the photo.  While the original photo in-camera might look totally weird, I knew what I could do in processing to make it into the image I wanted.  I visualized the final image before taking the photograph.  A good skill to have.
Photographers can often be lumped into two distinct camps. The first is the "what" group which is represented by people who study their craft and follow tutorials as if they are a scripted set of instructions never caring about anything other than if the technique works or not. The second group is the "why" group who study their craft and follow tutorials while also striving to learn about why what they are learning actually works. The second gro...

An interesting post from Fstoppers.  Something to make you stop and think.  Although I have yet to find a decent film camera for the price he suggests.
Ah, vacation! As photographers who shoot to put food on the table, it's exceedingly difficult to unplug. The temptation to jump into post-processing as soon as we take a photo can be overwhelming. The image is never done! If we just push this slider or that, tweak this or that, or crop here or there, the image would be so much better. At some point, though, shouldn't we be experiencing our vacation instead of documenting it? Enter the ultimate in...

Something to keep in mind when you are out shooting.

Michael Yearout, AIAP
Knowing your rights as a photographer is important, particularly if you spend a lot of time working outside or in public places. The American Civil Liberties Union has released a list of rights that any photographer should be aware of.

There are two sides to every story, but this is an interesting read.
"I can't take a shot like that. My camera isn't good enough. Oh sure, you can talk all you want, but you have thousands of dollars in expensive equipment! Yeah, I know it's the photographer, not the camera, but let's get real: my beginner gear can't do that!" Excuses, excuses, excuses. A lot of people, especially those just starting out, use their lack of pro gear as a tether, holding them back from getting the shots they are capable of. Here are...

These "slow mo" guys are just fun to watch.  And they through in some education to boot.
I'll never get tired of slow motion. Things are easier to explain, and they just look cooler. Check out this great slow motion video that takes you inside an SLR shutter system.

Some good advice here - practice, practice, practice and then practice some more.
There are many tips online. Five step listicles of composition, post-processing, editing, getting the model to smile more, and to capture a story in the best way possible. You can be friendlier to clients, communicate your vision to the team, client or model, use on or off camera flash, and setup your camera in a better way to enable easier ways to capture the shot. You can learn about better workflows and how to increase your productivity in pos...

Oh, my.  A funny and enlightening video.  Note: While there's no explicit nudity in the video, there is a healthy dose of butts and implied nudity, as well a little NSFW language
"We're constantly looking at images that have been Photoshopped; we only notice it when it goes a step too far," note the Try Guys. There's an ongoing debate about society's conception of the female body and just how much post-processing is too much. To really explore the idea, though, the group held a shoot in which they recreated infamous Photoshop disasters to understand just how far these "ideals" are pushed.

This sure sounds like fun - if I could stay up that late!
Astrophotography is tough to master; it takes a lot of specialized equipment, careful post-processing, and a nocturnal lifestyle. Tiny1 aims to alleviate at least some of those issues (you'll still have to stay up late) and make astrophotography accessible for anyone interested in the genre.

1917 Forest Service cabin given new life.

A few weeks ago I did a photo shoot for Curbed Ski. The images were to be used in a story about a 1917 Forest Service cabin that had been converted into a home.

The story was published recently. Please click the link below to read the full story.

Two years ago, Justine and Steele Spence were looking to buy in Summit County, Colorado when they encountered a typical ski town problem: real estate was too expensive. They decided to DIY-renovate a 99-year-old former ranger station.
