Ok folks, we have a winner!
Matt didn’t have too many photos to choose from, so I was sorta afraid that maybe he wouldn’t choose any at all. You know, that’s always an option. But, thankfully, he liked two of Lydia’s photos well enough!
He said, “I really like the shadow in 0073 and 0079 is probably my favorite and will be perfect for our…[Read more]
That was a great webinar! If anyone would like to re-watch it, here’s the replay link: https://www.lenspiration.com/video/webinar53/
And this is the list of things we discussed:
03:26 – Overview of the “Go Forward” photo assignment.
07:00 – Critique of Ezra’s photo submissions, and understanding a phone camera’s limitations so we can use them…[Read more]
I tried to do a focus merge using Photoshop’s “Auto-Blend Layers” feature
at the end of the video, as he said, there is some manual refining that he does.
Would you mind providing a link to the video that you are referring to here?
My Grandpa gave me a camera very similar to that! I’ve always wanted to do some study on it. I should pull it out and take some pictures of it one of these days. Where did you get yours?
The edit certainly helped draw attention to the front elements of the lens, which I think of as being your subject.
Maybe I’d like to see a little fill-light on…[Read more]
Hi @earnestf-lloyd, sorry, your questions somehow slipped my radar!
Are you trying to do it manually, or are you trying to use an auto-stacking feature in Photoshop? I don’t have experience with it, but I think Photoshop has an “Auto-Blend Layers” feature. Did you try the steps outlined in this article?…[Read more]

Thank you @buddingphotographer! I think I’ll just use an ND filter for now. That was a good idea.
Good thoughts, @loganlamar. It was my favorite lens years ago when I was first starting out too. It’s what I upgraded to after using the kit lens 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 that came with my first camera purchase, and I couldn’t believe how much better it was! I used it all the time.
After using L-series lenses now for many years, I do notice it’s…[Read more]
James Staddon replied to the topic Starting up a Portrait Photography Business – questions! in the forum Photography Q&A 1 day, 14 hours ago
Hi @creative-click-photography! What a great question! It deserves more than just a quick reply or even a short discussion on a webinar. It’s something you’ll definitely want to work through and have a plan for.
I’ll bring it up on the webinar tonight (https://www.lenspiration.com/webinar/photo-critique-53/), give my thoughts, and then we can go…[Read more]
This year certainly turned out to be different than most years. I only remember seeing lightning once in April, and though I had my camera ready to photograph it, that weren’t any more bolts of lightning that came. I saw lightning once in May, the month that usually has a thunderstorm every week (at least), but I only remembers seeing lightning…[Read more]
A hearty congratulations to all who bravely ventured to photograph this difficult assignment! One thing that surprised me about this assignment specifically was the unpredictability of full sunlight. At this time of year, at least in West Virginia, many days were rainy or overcast. When the sun did come out, how often was it not blocked by clouds…[Read more]
Hi everyone, I’m upgrading and no longer have need for my Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens. I bought it in 2017 as part of a package deal with a 7D Mark II from a guy on Craigslist in Dallas, Texas. I really haven’t used it much since then and it still functions and looks like new (except that the paint’s started to rub off on the lens cap and…[Read more]
Sorry, @loganlamar, I somehow missed this update . . . unbelievable! Fascinating. Thank you for sharing!
James Staddon started the topic High-speed-sync flash possible on a slave speedlight? in the forum Photography Q&A 1 week, 6 days ago
High-speed-sync flash is a feature on both the 430EX and 580EXii speedlights. However, I seem to only be able to get high-speed-sync flash to work when it’s sitting in the hotshoe. As soon as the 430EX or 580EXii are triggered remotely as slaves, high-speed-sync longer seems to be an option. I’ve read the manuals and scoured the Internet, but I…[Read more]
Yay! I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!
Not the greatest of quality, but still, the best I was able to do with the circumstances God gave!

How do you decide how big of a margin to use, when composing? When do you use a “close” crop?
This is when it’s nice to be that person of whom people say, “oh, they have an artistic eye”. 🙂 Those with “artistic eyes” doesn’t generally use mathematical formulas or “golden…[Read more]
Ok folks, here’s the webinar replay link! https://www.lenspiration.com/video/webinar52/
I was quite amazed at how much we were able to fit in:
00:28 – Overview of the “Sweet as Honey” assignment
05:15 – Critique of William’s photo submissions, and what to do if there’s something in your photo that annoys you!
08:45 – Critique of Sonja’s photo…[Read more]
Wow, guys, it was a great webinar last night and so exciting to announce the winner! There were so many winner pictures submitted, in my opinion. 30, to be exact, that I felt would do well being sold as stock or added to a portfolio, and 13, actually, that I liked so much that I wish they could be in my portfolio! 🙂
Hi everyone, this is a bonus assignment for photographers seeking an extra challenge. There are generally more thunderstorms across the United States at this time of year, so I was hoping to take advantage of this unique opportunity to provide an extra calendar photo for our missionary friends in Europe. Thunderstorms are not necessarily able to…[Read more]
