New Camera Recommendation

Hi! My sister-in-law is wanting to buy a new camera and she came to me for advice! I would love to help her, but since I’ve only ever owned one camera I don’t have much experience in that area. She’s not wanting to be a professional photographer, but she just wants to be able to take higher quality... Read More »

I’m glad the picture worked out so well 🙂 I have to give credit to my brothers. You may have noticed some pretty interesting coins; my youngest brother Ben let me borrow his coin collection with coins from all around the world. There are some from France, Iceland, Norway, Caribbean, Canada, Barbados, and the... Read More »

And here we are again finishing up yet another VersePic Opportunity! Before we get into the winner, I just want to say there were a lot of good submissions, with each submitter taking a slightly different approach to the requested idea, which gave me a lot stuff to choose from, which in turn creates a better...

Just wanted to post a quick update and thank our previous winner Abby Sherlock for submitting seven DNG files via the DFR! For some reason, Dropbox lets me preview RAW files and not DNG, so I’m not going to know what any of these look like until I put them in Lightroom and MaxCurve when the deadline ends here...

@frazer-family, what brand is your flash? I’m going to guess that it might be set to “Slave” mode, which would make it fire only when it detects a flash from another source. Otherwise, as @jamesstaddon said, it could be a camera menu setting. That would probably only be true though if your flash is... Read More »

A New Ebook On Family Photography!

A New Ebook On Family Photography!
For the past few months I’ve been working with JessiLise Studios to put together a new ebook, 30 Tips for Perfect Family Photos! Here’s the index: Family portraiture isn’t typically a common a subject for photography training material, so I hope it helps to “fill the gap” a bit when it hits the Lenspiration Store!...

Thanks @jamesstaddon, for all the advice! Unfortunately, it was all over before I got it! 🙂 I did actually follow some of your advice though, even though I didn’t realize it at the time. 🙂 Being the perfectionist that I am, I’m not 100% happy with the results, but hopefully I’ve learned a few things...

Here you go, @buddingphotographer, feel free to watch my answer to your question at https://www.lenspiration.com/video/qaonstage/ One thing I forgot to mention in the video is the fact that I don’t think it will do much good to have your computer there. It will take way too long for you to snap a photo of your... Read More »

Hey James, My cousin has asked me to be the second photographer at her wedding (the other photographer is another cousin). Any tips would be most welcome, especially as this is the first time I’m doing something like this. Thanks a bunch! Read More »

Reply To: 12 Tips for Puppy Photography

I rely quite extensively on my speedlights for puppy photos, (YN-560 III & IV). I usually just use one on camera, and bounce it off the ceiling for nice even light. It’s amazing how flash brings out the details. It just gives a little “pop” that you don’t get without a flash. Of course... Read More »

A couple “product photography” shots I took recently of our bunnies for sale. @buddingphotographer’s tips on puppy photography inspired me to take some really nice pictures of our 5-week-old rabbits. As the photographer, I tend to get the praise for good photos, but really at least half the credit... Read More »
