    The World Is Your Backdrop

    The World Is Your Backdrop

    Photographers often thrive for that "perfect shot" when anticipating the next click. They take one look at the scenery and the aura surrounding it and map out the science via the lens of the camera. This, combined with an intense amount of patience and skill, can often lead to some stunning portraiture. But, I'd be lying if I told you I've spent hours debating every single snap in my portfolio. In fact, I've probably quickfire-clicked at least half of them without really thinking about the chemistry between subject and scenario. And, you know, those were actually some of my best images captured in my photography career. Those blind-fire, careless and shotgun round snaps were actually some of the crowning achievements over a lifetime of complex theory. The best part is – I never even realised it, either.

    Modern Animal Rescue Photography

    Modern Animal Rescue Photography

    For centuries, we've domesticated animals to be compatible and convenient parts of our lives. Our love for their company and devotion has made them members of our families...some may even say our kids! Unfortunately, companion animals specifically have been bred for centuries, to the point where there's now an overpopulation issue and many face euthanasia, to no fault of their own. Open admission animal shelters around the country take in an abundance of animals every year as strays or from community members who are no longer able or willing to care for the animals. To say the least, there's no shortage of fluffy lives who need our help.

    Photography Has Nothing To Do With Your Camera

    Photography Has Nothing To Do With Your Camera

    Wow, your camera must be really expensive for you to be able to produce a photo like that. It was one of the most insulting things ever said to me in my entire photography life.

    Passing by

    I was on my way home from a long hard day at work, with chattering teeth, clasping my coat to try and block the rainy gusts of ice cold wind whipping my face, when I passed by one of my favourite restaurants and caught a glimpse of the outdoor seating area, through the gate, only just. Almost walked on but decided to stop and turn back, stepped up to the gate to peek through and admire the scene. Something about the play of light captivated me. The warm glow of the lightbulbs, the reflection of the wet floor, the pattern of the black wire chairs, the blurred out droplets of water on the gate.

    Memories of Madrid

    Exploring new territory has always been something of a challenge for me. I yearn to see the World and all of the beautiful places within it, but it is also an overwhelming prospect. So whenever I do venture beyond the UK, it is safe to say I am terrified.

    Through My Eyes

    I started with street photography the moment I picked up the camera, actually I borrowed the camera from my friend Maja. It was some kind of Sony DSLR I remember, did the job. I was so excited, and the first thing that I shot was the people on the street. That was it.

    Truth or Art: Integrity in the Portrayal of Culture Discussed in Katie Ives’s "Sharp End"

    Truth or Art: Integrity in the Portrayal of Culture Discussed in Katie Ives’s "Sharp End"

    The works of authors depicting the first ascent of the tallest peak in the world in the early 1900s “reflect[ed] dreams of hidden other worlds or vertical wastelands." After all, these writers were storytellers, seeking a story that would captivate worldly audiences. They did not lie, nor transcribe the events in a malicious manner, but their search for the twist that would set their story apart from the rest left a hole in the truth. In the essay “Sharp End,” published in the magazine The Alpinist, Katie Ives follows Tibetan local and author of We Tibetans, Lhamo, and with the accompaniment of Ethan Welty’s photography, illustrates the tradeoff between an honest portrait of foreign culture for a more interesting story.

    “Bunny” was the brand name of my first camera when I was only ten. It was a cheap fixed lens 120 format camera. After loading a roll of film, twelve shots could be taken before having to reload. There was then quite a wait until the film was developed and printed before the results of the shooting could be seen.

    Twitter Just Made Your Photos Look Better

    Twitter Just Made Your Photos Look Better

    Twitter has historically reduced the quality of photos to save space. Along with many other creators, I was frustrated with the way it handled media uploads. My photos and videos lose so much resolution and quality when I shared them on the social network so that this content could load faster on web and mobile devices. I continued to post, as many others have, on the world's most popular microblogging site, Twitter, mainly to connect with and to learn from my followers.

    10 Lightroom Editing Tips to Transform Your Winter Photos

    Winter has definitely arrived for those of us who live in the northern hemisphere. For many, this is an excellent time to spend more time editing their photos. Others enjoy taking on the challenge of taking their cameras out into the winter wonderland to capture the snowy scene into a fantastic photograph. I love getting outside and taking photos of a magical scene just has just been draped in a blanket of snow. And there are no mosquitoes here in Ontario!

    10 New Year’s Resolutions to Make You a Better Photographer

    Did you receive a new camera for Christmas? If so, you're likely excited about taking some great photos. In reality, these images will only be as good as the photography skills of the person who presses the shutter release. The new year presents opportunities for self-improvement and self-reflection. Photographers, like all artists, should consider their goals for the year ahead. Perhaps you want to consider relying less on auto modes. For enthusiasts, building your skills in off-camera lighting would be a valuable endeavour. If you're a seasoned professional, maybe it's time to further develop your business.

    Calendars

    Most photographers produce calendars at some time during their careers, whether they be for family, clients or perhaps with specific subjects to be sold commercially. Over the years, I have produced several. Some have been personal, just for family members; others I have used for distribution to clients and potential clients to promote my business; others have been produced specifically for clients.

    What Does an LED Ring Light Do for Photography

    What Does an LED Ring Light Do for Photography

    It's hard to take a decent close-up photo without tinkering with lighting in a skillful way. Erratic lighting casts harsh shadows, distorts contours, and increases glare. Fortunately, there's no shortage of tools that help manipulate lighting.

    My New Little Polaroid Camera

    My New Little Polaroid Camera

    So, I don't know if you remember the original Polaroid camera from back in the day? (See below). I was excited when I found they had brought it back and made it cuter than ever! As you can see from the original, it wasn't that exciting to look at, but it was an exciting new technology (for that time), whereas you could take a picture and have it appear right away, and after about a minute, it developed on its own and you were able to have your pictures right away! But Polaroid went away and we didn't see it for years.
