And a little word of advice I picked up over last weekend shooting some family portraits….even with flash units to fill in, still avoid positioning people in front of windows to keep them from looking like they are glowing. I think this is a fine effect in the outdoors, but inside it looks less natural.
Yes, if there’s just a small amount of zoom blur like in this shot, then the center of the frame will still have the appearance of being in focus. So if the subject’s face was in the center, then yes, it would be worth keeping. Because subjects being dead-center isn’t generally the best composition, one can crop afterward to improve the…[Read more]
Love it, @dan-cope!
How did you capture both streaked, moving clouds (on the right) and still, textured clouds (on the left) in the same sky? Is this a photo merge?
Do you have an online portfolio anywhere where folks could go to buy it as fine art?
Thank you, @creative-click-photography, for your submissions! I’ll contact Margret. If she falls in love with any of your pictures, then I’ll send you the $30! If she wants more options, then we’ll probably extend the deadline into late December. Will keep you in the loop about what she says!
Thank you, everyone, for helping out with this assignment!
Your participation has been a real blessing to those who were needing the picture. Even if your photo wasn’t chosen, doesn’t it feel good to be part of a group of photographers who enjoy serving others?!
If you missed the webinar (and want to find out who won the assignment!) or just…[Read more]
Hey everyone, here’s another shooting opportunity!
Have you ever heard the hymn, Blessed Be The Name? Can you go out and photograph (or find from your portfolio) a picture that illustrates it? The overarching message of the hymn is “majesty supreme”. Reply to this topic with your submissions!
Good question! There are five ways someone can know whose photo was chosen:
1. Watch the webinar.
2. Watch the replay of the webinar. I get it that not everyone is going to be available at 7pm on Tuesday nights! However, direct replays are only available for a few days after the webinar. Plus, replays are only available to those who have…[Read more]
Ok, folks! IBLP has chosen the photo!
I’ll announce the winner during the webinar on Tuesday. It will give us time to talk about why that particular shot was chosen (and why others were not), why some submissions were excellent in general (and how others could be improved), and how to use those “generally excellent” photos for other purposes now…[Read more]
Oh, that’s hilarious!
Reminds me of a webinar I did at a park one time . . . I must admit that gunshots from folks target practicing that day was an odd background noise. 🙂
Hope something works out for tomorrow!
The deadline on this opportunity is approaching rapidly.
I’ve not taken the time to shoot for this, but my sister is flying home on Thursday so I might get the chance to do something this weekend during the VA FEW Conference if the weather works out. Since I’m not in a “rocky-mountain-landscape” part of the world, I will probably opt to…[Read more]
Thank you @rmadaris! I really like that old-timey clock. Can you take some compositions (perhaps under softer light) that leave most of the frame blank/textured with content on the edge(s) of the frame?
Will leave this opportunity open through November 6 to give folks more time to shoot for it!
There were no eagles around when I was there. Lucky you!
There was a cute little lighthouse there in Homer I took pictures of. I don’t know if it’s even on Google Maps! I’ll have to add it to the Scouting Guide.
Wow!!!!! What a fantastic opportunity! So, it was like a family vacation? How did you all get up there? Did you actually drive all the way? I’m sure you guys took loads of pictures. The ones you’ve shown here are fantastic!
1. How much have you cropped this image of the eagle? I would assume you’ve cropped it considerably. If you haven’t cropped…[Read more]
