I personally think that primes are the way to go for portraits because I like a very narrow depth-of-field. I own a 85mm 1.8, and it is almost too shallow- I often need to turn it up to focus correctly. If you use canon, look at the 24-105 f/4 L series. I got one used, and I am very impressed with its IQ. Very sharp,... Read More »

Creating a Portfolio

Hello, all! I enjoy all sorts of photography, but the main focus of my photography “business” is concert photography (specifically the Southern Gospel Music genre). I’ve been doing it for a few years and have already established a base with my name out there (I’ve done album covers, work used... Read More »

I’d appreciate it if you could give me some ideas here on composition and aperture. We have the most beautiful knock-out roses, but I’ve kind of gotten stuck in a rut with photographing them. Thank you! Canon T6 EFS 18-55 mm 1/80 ISO 500... Read More »

I like the second pic! I might try to selectively lighten the shadows in the right hand corner, and possibly turn the green saturation down a little to put more emphasis on the sky. A little contrast might help too. Not too sure about the composition though- I prefer horizontal... Read More »

Lenses

I have been looking into getting a new lens. I already have the 18-55mm and the 75-300mm kit lenses and I have a 50mm prime lens as well. Is there a good lens under $400 that is good for portraits/nature or should I just stick with what I have now. By the end of this year I will be getting a new camera either the 70D... Read More »

I might try to darken the highlights and lighten the shadows. I do this to many of my landscapes shot on bright days to bring back the sky and illuminate the land. I started a post called “pasture in golden hour”- the centered histogram was achieved using this... Read More »

Pasture during Golden Hour

Pasture during Golden Hour
I shot these pics last evening on the way to church- just rolled down my window, tried to compose as best I could and shot. I was pleased with how they came out, but was wondering if they look too saturated. Canon 70d 24-105 f/4 usm L series Shutter speed 400-640 F/4 Iso 320 Focal length... Read More »

This reminds me of a place near our our property here in Georgia! First off, It’s underexposed, so I would re-take it at 1/100th ISO 200. I also am not a big fan of the yellow/greenish tint this photo has, so you might be able to edit that a bit or use a different white balance. I also think a square crop would... Read More »

Reply To: How would you compose this?

@bennett-family, If I was taking this photo, I would have set all the flowers up on a blank area (sidewalk), and used my drone to get a shot with grass on both sides of the sidewalk, and the flowers going straight down the center of the... Read More »

Reply To: How would you compose this?

These are some beautiful center pieces! You’ve got some good ideas going here. For the first two shots, I think I’d have tried getting a little lower to the ground to emiminate the hovering feeling and maybe trying to eliminate some of the distractions on the concrete. I find there’s a few too many subjects in the... Read More »
