My thought is that anyone can be as creative as they want with photo manipulation as long as they stay within the boundaries of Biblical morality; and since these boundaries are so wide, there is plenty of space for thousands of years of human preference to thrive within it.

Interesting arrangement of elements. This could work if it wasn’t so underexposed. It would be worth figuring out the hyperfocal distance for focusing this shot too as the picture appears out of focus.
The camera fogs up when you go from cold to hot. (It usually isn’t as much of a problem when going from hot to cold.) I would guess that your…[Read more]
Like your choice of white balance shift. If the sky wasn’t vibrant blue, than there wouldn’t be much interest since it would be so normal. The warm tone makes it feel old-time or historic.
I’m glad it’s not a photo of a single plane dead center in the frame. The off-centered subjects are important, and it’s nice to have those clouds on the right…[Read more]
Just the questions I’ve been waiting for! I have just begun selling stock so I won’t be able to give you years of experiential advice, but I’ll talk about what I’ve learned so far! And you might be surprised what I’ve run into so far, especially with property releases. 🙂 See you tomorrow on the webinar!…[Read more]
Two more great questions, @melaniethomsen! Thanks for being specific, and providing an example. Will attempt to begin some discussion on these in the webinar tomorrow….https://lenspiration.com/photography-qa-with-lenspiration-sep-16/
This is EXACTLY the type of light I face at every single event I shoot and hold Photography Teams at, so there…[Read more]
Conduct your experiments on a tripod too. And experiment with actual, flowing water. From my experience 1/10th of a second or slower is the general ballpark.
And as a side note to those who have membership access to it, here’s a video outlining the 5 steps to capturing the smooth water…[Read more]
I’m glad you’re careful going about doing this! Yes, I will do my best. I’ll try to think through exactly how I would back up my photos if it was my first time, step by step. Hope it will all be completely resolved by tomorrow! https://lenspiration.com/photography-qa-with-lenspiration-sep-16/
I distinctly remember the first shot I tried to take in the dark….I’ll see if I can’t bring it up on the webinar tomorrow. It totally wasn’t sharp, like you mentioned, and I too was using a tripod. So after that I looked into how to focus in the dark and haven’t had a problem since! Will share some tips about this tomorrow:…[Read more]
Great question! This is something I’ve struggled with a lot. It’s sort of a last-minute question so if I can’t fit it into the webinar tomorrow, than I’ll be sure to update this thread with some thoughts. https://lenspiration.com/photography-qa-with-lenspiration-sep-16/
If it wasn’t so late, I’d try to provide some ideas right away. If you’re interested, I’m putting together some thoughts for tomorrow’s webinar in response to blessingscaptured questions about selling stock. https://lenspiration.com/forums/topic/questions-on-stock-photography/
This is the link for the webinar:…[Read more]
Ok! I’ll try to show you how to use it tomorrow during the webinar! https://lenspiration.com/photography-qa-with-lenspiration-sep-16/
I’m glad you understand that concept better now! Sorry it wasn’t explained well enough to make it click the first time in the Foundations course. 🙂 I’ll have to read through that section again and make some tweaks. I’m always learning new things and new ways to approaching things. (There was once a time when I explained the difference between…[Read more]
Oh there’s so much I want to share about this incredible experience! It was a lot of fun to travel down with the Parfitts and photograph and experience the entire event with friends down there in North Carolina.
For starters, you can see some of the best photos from the eclipse at http://www.lenspiration.photos/eclipse
There’s so much I would do…[Read more]
Thank you so much, @bensharpeningcharacter, for taking the time to critique all those shots! I’ve drawn this up into a blog post that I’m going to share later today. I think this was VERY helpful to the participating photographers. Looking forward to the next VPO when you have the time to post it!
Wow, great deal! Let me know how you like the trade-off of compactness and opening a 4th section. I can imagine compactness winning out in the end…mine is a little conspicuous carrying it through the airport. 🙂
Here’s a great article on how to shoot and combine star trails: https://petapixel.com/2013/03/18/how-to-photograph-star-trails-from-start-to-finish/ (I recommend you have AdBlock Plus installed for that website)
If shooting in Bulb, it’ll take a lot of experimenting. You’ll need 30min to an hour at least. This is rough on your camera. And if your…[Read more]
