Sharpening. A subject that has potentially endless possibilities when it comes to how it can be done, high pass, unsharp mask, sharpening etc are the main one’s that most of you will know about, however I’m here today to offer you a method of sharpening that I personally, have found so impressive that I just had to pass it on! I actually call this method “The Sharpening” because I find it to be hilarious and entirely unnecessary. ;)
It often seems like the general quality of wedding photography has dropped in recent years. I don’t know if it is because DSLR cameras have become so popular or because so many people who have just picked up their first DSLR consider themselves a “pro”. Maybe it is just due to the fact that so many photographers today, no matter their level, have a website or Facebook business page.
This isn’t a rant about the state of professional photography or a debate whether or not new photographers are ruining the industry. This is simply the reason why I now, more than ever, appreciate good wedding photographers.
That’s why I decided to share with you some of the best wedding photographs of 2014, selected by the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers.
As 2014 begins drawing to a close, it marks the official beginning of an onslaught of year end lists. If you only have the time (or patience) to sit through one of them, I hope you choose this silly 19-minute long clip from the guys at The Camera Store. Their refreshing departure from the traditional year end list is presented in video form, probably because they want us to enjoy their progression from sober to flat out wasted as they play a drinking game while delivering their top and bottom picks of 2014. They save the worst of lists until the very end, when they’re nice and hammered, so rest assured, you’re getting their unfiltered feelings about the gear. Hilarity is bound to ensue….
Take a look at the clip, below, and be sure to read on for a follow up…[Read More…]
