My Failed Attempt at Double Exposures
Multiple exposures are always something that have happened to me by accident, rather than me choosing to create them. Accidental double exposure
The Kiss of Life
On July 17, 1967, the headlines of the Jacksonville Journal read “Kiss of Life” with a captivating photo underneath. The photo showed two men embraced in what appears to be a kiss, a moment of love and happiness between a couple who only have eyes for each other. Seeing two men embraced in such a manner was exactly what the image editors at the Jacksonville Journal knew would shock readers as they sat at the kitchen table, paper and coffee in hand. A closer look at the photo and story revealed this kiss was not one of love and compassion, but instead a kiss of life as one coworker helped save the life of his injured coworker.

Confessions of an Amateur Wildlife Photographer
It’s good to have a hobby, especially one that gets me outdoors again. Sitting in the same room, staring at the same screen, the days, weeks, and months merge into one another.
I am a wildlife photographer who likes to get close to my subjects since that is where the details are. The downside to getting close is dealing with a narrow Depth of Field (DoF), like the photograph above, when I can’t stop-down because the light is low and it will raise my ISO beyond what I’m comfortable with. There are also times when close with good light that I can stop-down to capture all that amazing detail like the image below.
4 Habits I Learned from Shooting Slide Film that Improved My Digital Photography
Do you remember slide film? Also known as ‘reversal’ or ‘transparency’ film, it was a color film that produced a positive image rather than a negative. You could usually recognize a slide film if the name ended in chrome—for example, Kodachrome, Ektachrome, or Fujichrome.
The Lucky Ones
Your teenage years can often feel like you’re living in limbo. Or, at least, that’s how I remember them. It’s a strange paradox of feeling like an adult and starting to take on adult responsibilities, but not quite being an adult or having any of the freedoms that come with adulthood. You’re too old to be a child but not old enough to be an adult. I think that, at times like this, where you’re living in that in-between, finding a purpose can be difficult.

Choosing the perfect first camera
Do you have someone, perhaps yourself, who is interested in, or has just begun learning photography? Beginner (or Novice) photographers have some interesting challenges before them. We live in a day and age that has lulled many of us into a comfort zone of “good enough” photographs taken with a device initially designed to facilitate voice conversations across the miles. Beginners, as well as Photography professionals, will often hear people say “I don’t have a camera, I just use my smartphone”, or the even more condescending “Why do you have that camera, just use your phone like I do”. Yes, there are distinct advantages to the cameras in smartphones, they allow anyone anywhere to capture an image or video in a matter of seconds, and for the most part, that photo is either printed on a 2”x3” sticker or typically posted to social media. With proper composition and lighting,at that limited size/resolution, the photo will delight almost anyone who looks at it. So why would anyone invest good money in a camera in 2022? Better yet, why would the big camera brands invest millions of dollars into innovating the latest and greatest sensor technology, going big on Megapixel counts across the board? The answer is not so simple as dollars and cents. Let’s explore some perspectives.
What is photography?
As for knowing what photography is, let me talk about my opinion. More content, slowly watch. Divided into origin, essence, thought, light and shadow, these several parts. The following contents are my personal understanding of photography. Welcome friendly communication. First of all, a brief introduction to the origin of photography. Photography was invented in the 19th century. At the beginning, due to the difficulty of technical operation, it cost a lot and was an advanced enjoyment for the upper class. Photography can be accepted by people probably because it "draws" the same as oneself. I guess this may be the same meaning as when we draw pictures when we are young and our family praises our paintings. It took about the same amount of time to take a photograph as it did to paint a portrait, so my guess was that it was just a way for the well-to-do to assert their status. The invention of photography also indirectly promoted the development of painting. The invention of photography had a direct impact on the lives of portrait painters, for there was nothing more "painted" than a photograph. So it forced the painters to find another way to explore the possibility of art. With the development of science and technology, photography is becoming more and more popular, and ordinary people can learn photography and master photography. Here's the essence of photography. Literally speaking, the word "take" means "take", and the word "shadow" means "shadow" or "impression". Put the two meanings together to take a shadow, to leave an impression. This echoes one of the essence of photography -- recording. After all, photography is ultimately presented through photographs, and the final effect is achieved through physical means, which determines that everything in photography is real. When we were young, we all had a thick photo album or two at home, which was a record of our lives. It's a record of what happened in the photos, and it's a record of time. Nowadays, although almost no one needs to develop photos, there are still many photos stored on their phones. What I want to say is that the development of technology has only changed the medium of photographic recording, but it has not changed the nature of photographic recording. Documentary photography is a rigorous record of what happens. Having said one essence of recording, another essence is expression. The expression of photography is expressed through photos. Whether it is commercial photography, art photography, landscape photography and other photography categories, there is a certain expression in them, which contains information. Although commercial photography takes commercial interests as the starting point, the presentation of the final product is also subject to many factors, such as the requirements of Party A, aesthetic appreciation of Party B's photographer, and shooting technology. This may not show up much in the photo, but it shows up in the process of taking the photo. Of course, the final commercial film or to serve Party A, that is to say, what Party A wants will be presented in the film. Similarly, art photography expresses the artistic expression and artistic pursuit of photographers, and landscape photography expresses the scenery and ideal scenery in the eyes of landscape photographers. In conclusion, the essence of photography is said. It answers the question of what photography is. Now to the question of what photography is. There are a lot of things about what photography is. It can be a way of recording your life, a means of making money, a medium of artistic expression, a hobby, whatever. Depends on what you want to do with photography. The first paragraph said that thought and light and shadow is to say all the photography in my heart. First, ideas. You can read the works of some masters to learn their thoughts on life, ideal, time and so on. Watching the works of the masters can learn their thoughts, deepen their own thinking, when shooting is not just a common door machine. Can also be shot to express their own ideas, the elaboration of their own ideas. Thought is not overnight, to continue to learn, thinking. Eventually form their own thoughts. Finally, the relationship between light and shadow in photography. In the process of learning photography, we often hear that "photography is the art of light and shadow". This sentence describes the influence of the relationship between light and shadow on photography. Combined with the above, photography literally means to take the shadow and leave an impression. But to make a shadow, you need light. As the saying goes, only when there is light, there is shadow. The relationship between light and shadow in photography almost determines the quality of a photo to a large extent. So light is a very important thing. Documentary excepting, it pays more attention to the expression of the content, but without the correct exposure can not do. Therefore, in the process of learning photography, both professional and amateur people need the effect of light and shadow to make their photos reach the ideal state.
