COVID-19/Coronavirus: a break down
Hello all, welcome back. Today's blog is slightly different from my usual writing of photography/travel related blogs. I'd like to address the COVID-19 pandemic, providing some useful information and suggestions. You're probably thinking, "pssht, what can you tell us that media hasn't already?", well for one I'm a nurse, and avoiding being sick, or managing sickness is literally my job. This is a bit of a read, so I'll provide a TL;DR at the bottom for anyone who wants it.
Phone cameras VS DSLR's?
Hello all! Welcome back! This week we'll be looking at phone photography and DSLR photography for Vocal's "Mobile Moments". I think that the path I'll be taking with writing this is a little different to what Vocal and Moment intended, but it wouldn't be my writing if I didn't do it slightly different. So what is the competition? Vocal would like us to take an image with our phones, share our creative process to the finest detail we can; from concept to product.
Printing your photos will make you a better photographer
Hello everybody! Welcome back, sorry for my little hiatus once again. This week I'd like to have a chat with everyone about why I'm a strong believer in printing our photos. I've been pretty consistently printing my own photos since I started on this path, however I didn't really understand the importance of it and how it was actually helping. Let's jump into it.
To edit, or not to edit?
Hello all! Welcome back, Happy New Year! I figured we'd get back into some photography related blogs! Let's talk a little bit about editing. What is it? What does it do? Is all editing the same? How do we edit an image? Is editing necessary?
"You packed how much?!"
How's it going everyone?! We're back with another blog about my travels! This week we're going to look at packing what I would call "efficiently", and while this style of packing might not be for everyone, it definitely works for me. So let's get in to it!
Social Media as a Creative—The Good, the Bad, the Ugly
Welcome back everyone! We've finished our four part intro piece on the Exposure Triangle and its components (which can be found here), let's get into some generic blogging! Social media, what are your opinions? Is it worth it? Are you a creative? What even is a creative???
The Exposure Triangle—A Guide to Getting off Auto
Welcome back everyone! For the past few weeks we've gone over the components of the exposure triangle; shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. This week we will be discussing the tips, techniques, and mindset to combine these elements to give you greater control over your photography and to help bridge the gap between the shot we've got, and the shot we want.
ISO—Same, Same, But Different
Welcome back to another blog! This week we're going over another component of our exposure triangle, ISO. ISO is an interesting concept; it's just as important as our other components, while at the same time it doesn't matter quite as much unless we're in the nitty-gritty's of it (in digital photography). Let's explore the basics and look at why understanding ISO and its subtle differences are important, not just for the shot we're trying to take, but also if we're looking to upgrade digital camera bodies. This blog is less aimed at what exposures are needed for what environments of shooting, but more to challenge incorrectly held beliefs on how ISO operates, and to hopefully provide you with a hunger to research ISO more. I will cover ISO from a more scientific perspective in the future, but for today let's look at why common belief is wrong.
Aperture (ƒ) - Filling Our Camera with Light
Hello all, and we're back with another blog! Last week we went over shutter speed and how it affects our images, and talked a little bit about how it is a conveyance of time in our images. If you missed it, you can read it via the link below
