Reply To: FEATURED: Pure

Here are the pictures that I came up with. We finally got some snow in New York!😂 I don’t really feel like any are calendar worthy, but I tried to incorporate what I had for landscape in our yard! It doesn’t exactly help that it’s so cold that you can barely adjust the settings on your camera when... Read More »

Reply To: FEATURED: Pure

Although I’m not very satisfied with my results of shooting for this assignment, here’s what I got! At first I tried shooting coins, but the more I thought about it, the more I didn’t think that it went along with the theme “Pure.” So I resorted to reviving some old photos I took!... Read More »

Reply To: Wedding Photos… in front of a window

Hey @kina, I kind of hesitated to say anything here on this topic as I have zero experience in wedding photography, but I guess I’ll share a few thoughts I had anyways. I will probably try to do the formal portraits on the stage then because there is no other nice place in the foyer for the pictures. I’m not... Read More »

Reply To: Shooting to the glory of God

Praise the Lord for edifying discussions like this! 1 Timothy 1:4 comes to mind as I reflect on this conversation: “Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.” I’d say that “godly edifying” just... Read More »

Reply To: Wedding Photos… in front of a window

If you have umbrellas, absolutely use them if you can! As long as the lights are bright enough to show up all, they should help fill in shadows and give that nice soft look that makes for nice portraits. You don’t have to break the bank to invest in speedlights if you’re not a hardcore “Canon”... Read More »

@buddingphotographer Thank you so much for your helpful insights! That is the type of information I was needing! 😀 Mm… yes… that is exactly what one of my brothers would say. Haha!! 😀 😀 (He’s my personal contradiction filter. 😀 ) The first time I was talking about the ideal window. The second time,... Read More »

Reply To: Shooting to the glory of God

After that, some rapid fire thoughts: @kina, your gospel-centric perspective is super refreshing! I love how every subject that catches your eye is an object lesson that somehow, some way, points back to Calvary. You can never have too many reminders. @jamesstaddon I remember Foundations of Photography lesson 1, with... Read More »

I have zero idea where my reply went… I clicked “edit” and resubmitted it… and it disappeared… so (fortunately it was still on my profile. At the risk of having a duplicate: Wow! I definitely got the replies I was hoping for, and I’m thrilled a lot of you seem to have put a lot of... Read More »

Reply To: Scenic Shot

Hi @brose16! This was taken in the late afternoon/early evening. I’m still trying to figure out the best lighting options, so any tips would be appreciated! If you’re trying to figure out best lighting options, you certainly have chosen the right time of day for it! 😉 Golden hour and sunset offer deliciously... Read More »

Reply To: Wedding Photos… in front of a window

There is a beautiful window in the foyer that would be ideal for the formal portraits. As you can see, it was not acceptable. 😀 I think I’m sensing a contradiction here. 🙂 I’m afraid the second statement is the more accurate one though. 🙁 If you would have raised the ISO and lowered the aperture, you...

Wedding Photos… in front of a window
Howdy! I’m shooting a wedding next month at a church. I went to the church already with the bride to check things out. There is a beautiful window in the foyer that would be ideal for the formal portraits. I am attaching a picture that I took of the window. ISO – 400 Aperture – 4.5 Shutter Speed... Read More »
