This past November I did a Christmas photoshoot for our family’s small business! It was rather fun working with pretend snow, snowflakes, ornaments and stars. My two big takeaways were not to blow on pretend snow 🙂 and secondly, that some products in certain settings can look better upright or shot at an angle, instead of directly from above.…[Read more]
Indoor event photography is still something I’m working on. And having discovered the wonders of having a speed light, I’m eager to learn how to use it more effectively! (The speed light was a great help while running an informal photoshoot with extended family last month – but I just used it on TTL.)
Below is a picture I took last year before…[Read more]
Great shot, @dancope. The 12mm gives me the feeling of the immensity of the location, more like I’m actually sitting or standing on the rocks. Whether you’d want a different focal length or not probably just depends on the message you were hoping to communicate.
Last month while on a walk with family members, I tried my hand at capturing detail and landscape shots for use online for our family’s ministry. Shooting a winding path is more difficult than it looks! 🙂
Would appreciate input as to how I could improve the first picture! The other picture provides comparison – maybe I’m making the same mistake…[Read more]
Thank-you @jamesstaddon, @nasa, @buddingphotographer, and @dfrazer for your comments! The positive pressure on the 50mm was fantastic for helping me take the plunge and actually order it. It is now attached to my camera and I’ve had fun with it already! 🙂
@jamesstaddon, wow! Thank-you! Just sent them over by email as just the actual photo. Due to computer space I currently shoot in JPEG so the file size is smaller than a RAW image. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if they didn’t come through or won’t come out of the email. (Sent from a Mac operating system.)
The goal is for at least one of…[Read more]
Did a quick fall product shoot for my sister’s cd last week. As Christmas is coming up, I would appreciate input on how I could improve on this picture so I can store ideas away for upcoming Christmas photo shoots! 🙂 Thanks so much.
Camera: Canon 7D
Focal Length: 53mm
Shutter speed:…[Read more]
This is going to be fun. Looking forward to it already!
Here are some photography questions I’d appreciate getting input on if there is any time let after the discussion of drone photography!
1. What is your all time favorite lens? Or do you have more than one?
2. When you go to shoot an event do you have a typical mental game plan? If so and…[Read more]
@jamesstaddon, Thanks for your input. I’m sorry I missed it on the actual day (was in NC on a family vacation!) and just sat down to watch most of the webinar today. Very helpful. After your advice on getting a lens with a lower aperture I wanted to make the purchase today – but am deciding to wait for at least one more day due to a second follow…[Read more]
Earlier this year I had the privilege of doing a photoshoot for my sister! She needed some photos for her professional website (she is a harpist and piano teacher) and it was fun to see if I could help. Portraiture is not a genre I have much skill in, but I would like that to change! Would appreciate any input on styling, editing, etc. For…[Read more]
@jamesstaddon, Thanks for your input. Yes, this is very helpful.
A follow up question I’d be interested to get your thoughts on is if you would consider a homeschool convention where you were a vendor to be a ‘public’ place or place of ‘business’? I’m looking to share pictures of people visiting our stall for editorial purposes and am pondering…[Read more]
Two questions for the webinar and anyone else who has some input!! 🙂
1) Indoor Lighting. One of my greatest challenges as a photographer is photographing indoor events. The lighting can be a challenge, particularly when the windows are behind the subjects I need to photograph! My current lens is a 28 – 135mm with it’s lowest…[Read more]
Great question! I was privileged to be a part of PRO for two months last year and just signed up again this July. 🙂
PRO is a fantastic resource for learning photography! It is largely self-directed, so the amount of in-depth training one receives is highly dependent on the kind of questions one asks and the actual photography work…[Read more]
This past May I had the joy of serving as head photographer for a mother/daughter retreat! I tried to capture not just action shots, but also ones of the location. This is one of my attempts to capture the beautiful Inn (Carlisle Inn, Sugarcreek, OH) at night. Any recommendations as to how I could improve the composition or my in-camera settings…[Read more]
