Thanks a lot @bennett-family! I’ll definitely take a look into Pixieset or just emailing them.
No I don’t have Lightroom. I am still trying to figure out if it would be worth it for someone who doesn’t make very much money with their photography.
You could also use a social media portfolio or maybe Dropbox?
I like the idea…if it would work for this situation. 🙂
I also might try the Adobe Portfolio.
Hey everyone, I am looking into getting started with Lightstock, and as I understand, you have to have an online portfolio to get accepted.
I currently don’t have an online portfolio, so I’m wondering how to set it up. Do you have to set it up via a portfolio website, or is there another way to go about it??
Right now I don’t really know much…[Read more]
Hey, here’s my try at this assignment.
As @esther said,
When I think of mountains, I think of God’s might and power.
Same is true with me!
It just feels so carefree when you’re up there on the mountain, above everything else, with the valley below. It just makes me want to give thanks to God, and “be careful for nothing, ” telling God what y…[Read more]
Hi @blessingscaptured, You have captured some great photos here on your vacation!
Photo #1. As far as composition goes I would try to position the subject (which I’m supposing was the tree there in the middle,)
more purposefully somehow, to separate it from the other trees and help it to look intentional. Another idea I have is to try shooting…[Read more]
Hey @creative-click-photography! Thanks a lot for the input, and I can definitely see what you’re saying about the compositions in the different photos. The next misty morning chance I get I’ll try shooting for even more excellence!!
I accidentally deleted the first picture while I was looking at it 🙄 , so here it is the original picture and then…[Read more]
Hey everyone! Here’s some pictures that I took yesterday morning!
There was some beautiful fog in the air that I wanted to capture, and a field of weeds near our house to take pictures in.
Here’s a few of the better ones. My settings for most of these pictures were: ISO 100, f 10-22, and shutter speeds 1-1/200.
I am using a Nikon D5200, 18-55mm…[Read more]
I often have my camera set to AUTO because the manual modes often make my photos ”grainy”, though I can’t figure out why.
What you said makes me wonder… is it a really high ISO by any chance that makes your photos grainy when shooting in Manual (M) mode??
Other than that, maybe there’s another setting that is making your…[Read more]
There is a thorny goji berry tree right near our house, and I knew that there would be some kind of insect or bird that I could shoot around there. So I pulled out my camera and took a little walk down the road. When got there I was disappointed to see nothing going on, but after 10 or 15 minutes of waiting I saw an American Goldfinch fly into my…[Read more]
Hey @loganlamar, I really don’t have much experience with shooting RAW or editing, but I do use a really good editor that some people like better than Photoshop that I would recommend. I don’t know if you’ve heard of it before but it’s called Affinity photo.
Affinity is good for someone that doesn’t do too much editing but still needs all those…[Read more]
Hi @buddingphotographer, that was really helpful !
The place you directed me to for a “stabilizer that stabilizes the whole camera” was also really good.
Thanks again, -Ernest
Thanks a lot @loganlamar! I will definitely check all these ideas out!
I also like the idea of going to the Christian world view film festival-it looks really good.
I’ll have to read that Digital Filmmaking For Kids For Dummies book.
And I have one more question. I am planning to use my camera with stabilizers for videography, so I am just…[Read more]
Hi everyone! I have another question.
Does anyone know where I can find a good wholesome place to learn videography ?
I know this is kind of the wrong place to ask, but I really appreciate Lenspiration, and it’s wholesomeness policy, so I wondered if there is any great website like this that someone could recommend for videography. (BTW my…[Read more]
Thanks for the ideas @elianafranzenburg!
I’ll definitely try the distance from the background technique.
Thanks a lot Logan Lamar! That will really help.
I think the aperture idea is what I was missing last time I tried to shoot a group photo.
I had low f-stop numbers but the group was layered and some people were out of focus , so some pictures didn’t turn out totally focused.
Thanks again -Ernest
Hi, I am going to take some family pictures next week and I am wondering how to blur the background in group picture while getting everybody tack sharp? How do you get a blurred-background family photo when the group covers most of the frame in the photo?
I hope that makes sense 🙂 .
