If you’re a regular gym-goer, you know that the coronavirus outbreak has had all the gyms closed down. And if you’re anything like me, the lack of physical activity makes you feel sad and nervous. But worry not: Gerald Undone has a perfect solution for stuck-at-home photographers and filmmakers. He has teamed up with a few “camera fitness experts” to bring you a series of exercises that you can do at home with your camera gear. That’s right, your gear won’t only help you keep your creativity in shape, but also your body. So let’s get started.
Combining photography and kitchen? Yes, please! I love spending time in my kitchen experimenting with food as much as I love taking photos of it. Well, Marc Klaus has “cooked” beautiful portraits in his kitchen using some of the items that we usually use to prepare food. In this video, he’ll show you how to use stuff from your kitchen to take some creative portraits at home.
Mexican photographer Felix Hernandez builds detailed miniatures and creates stunning photos with them. His work just keeps getting better and more elaborate, and his latest project has left me speechless. The Wind is a story about our changing world, and just like the cold wind blowing this evening, it has sent shivers down my spine.
For anybody who shoots videos, especially on their own, shooting b-roll can be a bit of a pain. You have to have it, though, really, to stop your video just becoming some kind of long monologue. It’s the supplemental footage that shows what you’re actually talking about, or just provides context for what’s going on or the topic at hand.
It’s something Sean Tucker knows all too well, having gone out in the past carrying far too much gear in order to shoot it and ultimately using very little of it. In this video, he talks about going back to the bare minimum to shoot his b-roll with just a Sony A7III and a Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 lens.
We’ve featured photographer Waleed Shah before with his empowering project Rock Your Ugly. Following him on Instagram, I noticed that he started publishing magazine covers with cheeky, ironic and humorous messages. I was curious to learn more about the new project he named simply Magazine Covers. So, I got to chat with Waleed about it a bit, and he shared his inspiration behind the project, as well as some images.
In this article, you will learn what different types of natural lights are available and how to use them to create stunning images of wildlife and nature.
Why my wildlife images look boring and dull? I don’t find the “WOW” factor in my pictures.
My images are sharp, and exposure is ok, but I don’t find them interesting, what’s the reason?
Does this sound familiar to you? Do you have these types of questions?
Well, it’s time to look for the most essential element in your images – light!
Like I mentioned in one of my previous articles, online learning is one of the great ways to spend your time in self-isolation. More and more companies and individual creatives are unlocking their online courses, offering them for free to everyone stuck at home during the coronavirus outbreak. To make it easier for you, we put all of them in one place. So, here’s a list of online courses that you can access for free during the coronavirus crisis. There’s a bunch of them all over the web now, but we’ve focused on those related to photography and visual arts.
It’s a strange time. Spring is here and it’s starting to warm back up outside after the winter chill, but no matter where we are in the world, we’re still mostly stuck indoors. For photographers, this can be frustrating. We’ve spent the last few months just itching to get back outside, and now we can’t. What can we do?
Joe Edelman has been thinking about this and over the past few days, he’s been doing a series of videos with photography challenges to try when stuck at home. Naturally, it’s a multi-part series, because we’re going to be here for a while. This one covers some pretty interesting creative macro tips for you to have a go at.
When I received my first camera I only shot jpegs. That was all I knew. A few months later a friend of our daughter came for a visit. She told me that it would be an idea if I started to shoot in RAW. I was like: “Say it again….what?” My ignorance was almost tangible. However, I took the challenge and have never looked back. Little did I know that my yes would start a life long learning and cost me a small fortune in editing software.
I soon discovered why RAW files are superior to jpegs, and in this brief article, we will have a closer look at one of the advantages of switching to RAW format. For landscape photography in particular switching to RAW has huge advantages.
