I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13
Here’s what we said on the webinar tonight. In case you missed it here’s the announcement!
Thank-you so much everyone for your interest and submissions for our assignment! We know you all put a lot of work and time into this and really appreciate it. Unfortunately, none of the images are going to be suitable for the girls category image. What the…[Read more]
If you can wait till the webinar next Tuesday, I’ll pull ’em up then!
Looking forward to it, @jamesstaddon! 🙂
Here are the original, unedited versions, too. I meant to post them with the others, but forgot!
I’m still planning to take others, but in case I run out of time I’m submitting these ones! 🙂
I know that pic #2 wasn’t quite what you had in mind, but looking back over my portfolio that was the only other picture that really has the feel of beseeching God for strength/I can’t do this alone. Not sure if it’ll work though!
Picture #3 – I had a…[Read more]
My family and I recently went on a trip to Lakes Entrance for a week. I was excited to get a chance to do some landscape photography!
Photo #1 – ‘Contemplation’
This one was taken at sunset. I didn’t have time to scout around for ‘the perfect’ composition – my dad and I arrived on the beach right as the sun was setting. I immediately spotted…[Read more]
I just recently watched a new video James put out to do with removing noise in post processing. In it he talked about the ‘detail’ slider. He said that the detail slider adjusts how much of the detail you want preserved after removing the noise. In Lightroom, the slider defaults to 50. Is there a reason that you wouldn’t want to make it higher…[Read more]
will you be needing more photos later? It looks like I’ll be missing this assignment
We’d love to see some of your work! We’ll keep this assignment open till the 10th (if that’s ok with @jamesstaddon?) so that you can take some photos for it.
BTW, the girl doesn’t have to be in a dress, it can be a skirt. Please make sure that her d…[Read more]
@bennett-family, thanks for your submissions! 🙂 Would it be possible for you to post the pictures of her with the violin, too? We’re interested to see what they look like!
I don’t think I want her all over the Internet.
We totally understand your concern! The photo will only be on our website and we may use it for promotional emails or some other type of promotional need. To be honest, once the image is on our website, your photo will be on the internet anyway and could come up in a Google search e…[Read more]
I’m thinking a posture that speaks “I am so incapable of being like you”, without strength, almost afraid to look up.
That sounds great. I’ll give it a shot!
Thanks so much (to you and your model!) for taking the time to shoot our assignment! It was exciting to look at your submissions. 🙂 You’re very creative! It’s cool to think that someone on the other side of the world was taking pictures for us!
Good for you getting out there and giving it a go despite the weather. We definitely would lik…[Read more]
Also, if the sky is just a blank blue color, I generally don’t use a Polarizer. It works better if there are puffy white clouds in the sky.
Will keep that in mind!
Those photos are really nice, btw!
A not-intentional-looking reaching.
Hmm… what do you mean by that? 🙂 Do you mean not really posed looking? I’ve attached a photo – would you class this as intentional reaching?
if your filter is high quality (like from B&W—and Hoya looks like it’s of good quality), you probably aren’t going to need one…
Ok, makes sense! 🙂 I’ll leave it for now and hope for the best!
I’ve read on a couple of places that people say to use a filter wrench. They were like, “You HAVE to have one of these otherwise it’ll be a nightmare.” 🙂 What do you guys recon? Do you use these?
I wouldn’t necessarily put that down as a hard and fast rule. Rather, just keep in mind that a polarizer’s effect is greatly reduced when pointed directly at or away from the sun.
Oh. Ok, then! 🙂
They work nicely for waterfalls because they cut down on the light, so you can get a slower shutter speed, res…
@loganlamar – Thanks for all your thoughts on that!
By doing so, I can see past the reflections and glare straight into the water.
Bryan Carnathan over at the-digital-picture.com has a good article about CPLs
Thanks – That was an interesting article!
Oh, and I don’t believe I’ve needed a tripod for my CPL—yes, it does reduc…
