  • 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

    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!

  • 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]

    Hey Josiah, much better on the first photo! To explain, bilateral blurring reduces smearing in photo’s as it brings an item/s out of focus without smearing it into the surroundings. In your photos, (and this is super nit-picky) you have a smear where you used the shutter speed to fast and it brought the background out of context, but it also…[Read more]

    This is a bad one of mine, I guess. I liked how it turned out. 🙂

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Rose with Bible Verse in the forum Photo Critique 1 week ago

    Wow, it doesn’t look grainy at all to me! What a unique idea to curve the roses! Good verse, I very much so like this one better than the others. One small piece of advice, the snow white background kinda gives that effect of getting a text message at two in the morning, opening your phone and realizing its on full brightness. Maybe gray, or a…[Read more]

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic What's underneath in the forum Photo Critique 1 week, 2 days ago

    Hey man! Wow these are incredible and I can’t believe your stuff turned out so well! I am super impressed, well done! Great stuff, two ideas on photo #1.

    The first is that you have a rock that you have out of focus in the bottom of the camera to add contrast against the background and the rock, good idea, bad approach. Your rock is taking up…[Read more]

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic What's underneath in the forum Photo Critique 1 week, 2 days ago

    @josiahw Totally! No one has to, but I found it as a cool and trying photo shoot, I would encourage anyone who wants to, to totally try this.

  • I was inspired by a challenge my friend gave to me, it is to take a seemingly non-photogenic photo, using a rock and a background of your choice, it has to be natural and outside.

    This is what I came up with, and I would love to inspire some of you guys with this challenge as it is FAR harder than it seems.

    P.s, if you want to save yourself a…[Read more]

  • Hey Eliana! I wanted to say what an amazing photo! I was very drawn into this from the beginning, and your passion for scripture in this makes this just that more special for me.

    Now a little personal critique from me 😂. You should almost never, and certainly never without checking with other people have your photo out of focus. One aspect of…[Read more]

  • Also a focal point so that we don’t just stare off into space, the plant right in the middle of the screen was what is in focus, that’s why everything else looks kinda just blurry.

  • Hey! This is a photo during a once in a lifetime pink/orange sunset, it is currently going through the normal phases of editing, but I found myself with struggle on wether to remove all the contrast and exposure, or just leave it and kinda let the bad quality show. One important thing to note, the back ground looks like it was taken with a 5$…[Read more]

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Weiss Lake in the forum Photo Critique 1 week, 6 days ago

    @rmadaris There were a couple of aspects I changed, one, I put in an inspirational quote to pull away from people looking at the imperfections of the photo. Saturation was greatly increased, along with horizontal focus. (quick note, I put your name in the bottom right hand side, to avoid copyright, just another way of letting people know this is…[Read more]

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Weiss Lake in the forum Photo Critique 1 week, 6 days ago

    Here, take a look at this one, it is your second photo, with a lot of editing and a little bit of photoshopping. It is still in a bit of the rough stage, but I would love to work with you and your ideas!

    Now that’s what I’m talking about! That is an amazing photo! The orange glow! The kind of misty background! I am so taken with this photo! This is the kind of stuff I wish I was able to capture! This kind of photo is surrounded by complete raw beauty! Love how you put something into focus! It’s either the trees on the middle left or the sunlight…[Read more]

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Weiss Lake in the forum Photo Critique 1 week, 6 days ago

    Hey Ryan, I didn’t mention some of this stuff earlier, but I have really found myself quite impressed with several factors in your photo. I love with the exposure in this photo! It is good that you took this photo on a cloudy day since it often removes the water-sunlight reflection that ruins a photo! It is also cool that you have that dock on the…[Read more]
