  • This is a photo that I took on a walk one day during an awesome sunset. I really liked this photo out of the few I took, so I took it into editing and worked around with it some. I came up with this as an end result, just curious to see what other people like/dislike about it. 🙂

    F-Stop: F5.6
    Aperture: F5.7
    Focal Length: 18.0 mm

  • Hey thanks to everyone for all the advice! You guys are awesome!

    One thing Clara, first, thanks so much for taking time to look at stuff, your opinion is not only helpful but valued.

    1. This photo was chosen to be difficult, it was to get people to really think about wording and thinking past like a “blank” spot in the photo. I understand…[Read more]

  • Hey! Awesome stuff! I use a Mac Program called PhotoScape X I did go and buy the full version.

    I tried what you advised before, the result is the background is still too strong, with no aurora the words almost literally disappear.

    In the picture below I have attached writing in all four corners at full visibility. While they do shine through,…[Read more]

  • Hey I have a really bad problem that has started coming up, could use some help, so in the photo’s I take that contain bible verses I usually always strive to make them professional, nice font, white letters, (keep it clean.).

    I will use this photo as an example, there are certain photo’s I take that are like so densely colored that even the…[Read more]

  • Hey, thanks so much for taking time to look at and determine some aspects these photo’s can grow in! I understand what you are saying and agree with a lot of your advice!

    I think I’d play around with the crop on the first picture, perhaps cropping at the bottom so there’s a bit less of the blank whited out foreground.

    Great advice! The…[Read more]

    I am very sorry, I had no intention of using any profane language at all, I’m really sorry my comment came across like that, um, which word did I say was profane?

    Again I’m very sorry that I included crude language in my sentence, I just can’t figure out where?

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Cinnamon Rolls! in the forum Photo Critique 1 month ago

    Wow! So I’ve gotta say I love photography, but I love cinnamon rolls more, so this photo caught my attention quickly!

    ~ Two points real quick/ First – Your background may not be most optimal. Second – Lighting.

    ~ First: I love cinnamon rolls! However your background may not be most carefully thought through for this shot, now I have never done…[Read more]

    Hey Jinny! Thanks so much! I love that you like them! Your point is very authentic and I like where you are going with that! There are two main reasons for why the photo has the watermark it does, (Quick disclaimer: This photo is extremely large, it is actually a 13 Mb photo, so a lot got cut off of the edges, you can even see that with how the…[Read more]

    Hey! So recently we had a lot of snow at our house! Nearly 18 inches of snow fell or the time-span of about a day and a half.

    So I decided to go out for a little late night shooting, I found these two photos out of the ones I took. I found them to be pretty satisfactory for what I was expecting 🙂

    (Quick note: These photo’s were taken in pitch…[Read more]

  • What a difference! I went outside to take some photo’s with your advice and techniques! The difference is astonishing!

    I can’t believe I didn’t think of any of this earlier!

    Hey man! It would be my pleasure! So have you ever heard of an effect called Jitter? Its like taking a photo and making it pixilated, but it makes the pixels shiny instead of dull, its great for taking things out of focus while still drawing attention, below I have attached a photo with it, and without it.

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Overplayed in the forum Photo Critique 1 month, 4 weeks ago

    @josiahw its an effect called opoid, it was kinda neat, cause the camera actually picked up detail in some aspects in stuff that was supposed to stay out of focus.

    And for the card, do you really? I thought it may be just a little out of focus too! Its kinda cool tho, I like that you can read boyle tho. I’ll take it back and work on it just a…[Read more]

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic What's underneath in the forum Photo Critique 2 months ago

    Hey man, can I ask, since it is already obvious that I have to do most of my effects post-process, do you have any advice on how to create better lens blur while taking the photo? I would actually really love to figure that out if you had any advice! @josiahw

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Grand Canyon in the forum Photo Critique 2 months ago

    Bro, first photo is by far the best, allow me to respectfully disagree with a lot of people… There is absolutely NO way I could possible think of making this photo any better by editing, this is the most spectacular photo I think I have seen on this so far, like mind blown dude….

  • Wow Jamie, great composition! and a 5.6 apature that’s really impressive! Good ISO for this kind of lighting, well done sighting in on the plant! And great back ground blur! I don’t think I have any doubts for this at first sight! Well done!

    I will take this and look at it in more detail but for the time being! Amazing job!

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic What's underneath in the forum Photo Critique 2 months ago

    Hey! Thanks so much @jamesstaddon! I appreciate it so much! I would love for you to critique this on your webinar, that would mean a lot!

    Hey again @josiahw I did a bad job of saying this, I usually do bilateral blurring, I find this works best for me, but I wanted to apologize I wasn’t cool on how I said that, bro your pictures look good dude,…[Read more]

  • Hey Dan, thanks so much for the input! I really appreciate it! I absolutely follow the aspect of “nothing other than the color really draws me in” for a photo this dark I had ISO set super high on the original photo, about 3,000, this was a mistake, in a setting this dark there is no way to avoid super grainy photo’s, (this is just what I have…[Read more]
