This is going to be fun. Looking forward to it already!
Here are some photography questions I’d appreciate getting input on if there is any time let after the discussion of drone photography!
1. What is your all time favorite lens? Or do you have more than one?
2. When you go to shoot an event do you have a typical mental game plan? If so and…[Read more]
@jamesstaddon, Thanks for your input. I’m sorry I missed it on the actual day (was in NC on a family vacation!) and just sat down to watch most of the webinar today. Very helpful. After your advice on getting a lens with a lower aperture I wanted to make the purchase today – but am deciding to wait for at least one more day due to a second follow…[Read more]
Earlier this year I had the privilege of doing a photoshoot for my sister! She needed some photos for her professional website (she is a harpist and piano teacher) and it was fun to see if I could help. Portraiture is not a genre I have much skill in, but I would like that to change! Would appreciate any input on styling, editing, etc. For…[Read more]
@jamesstaddon, Thanks for your input. Yes, this is very helpful.
A follow up question I’d be interested to get your thoughts on is if you would consider a homeschool convention where you were a vendor to be a ‘public’ place or place of ‘business’? I’m looking to share pictures of people visiting our stall for editorial purposes and am pondering…[Read more]
Two questions for the webinar and anyone else who has some input!! 🙂
1) Indoor Lighting. One of my greatest challenges as a photographer is photographing indoor events. The lighting can be a challenge, particularly when the windows are behind the subjects I need to photograph! My current lens is a 28 – 135mm with it’s lowest…[Read more]
Great question! I was privileged to be a part of PRO for two months last year and just signed up again this July. 🙂
PRO is a fantastic resource for learning photography! It is largely self-directed, so the amount of in-depth training one receives is highly dependent on the kind of questions one asks and the actual photography work…[Read more]
This past May I had the joy of serving as head photographer for a mother/daughter retreat! I tried to capture not just action shots, but also ones of the location. This is one of my attempts to capture the beautiful Inn (Carlisle Inn, Sugarcreek, OH) at night. Any recommendations as to how I could improve the composition or my in-camera settings…[Read more]
Quick question for @jamesstaddon and fellow webinar attendees! 🙂 I was able to log into the webinar just fine last month and could see the live chat, but was unable to join the discussion. Do I need a specific app or account to be able to participate?
Thanks so much for your help!
Absolutely, @jamesstaddon. I was using two soft boxes as my primary sources of light. My set up was in our basement, so I had some fluorescent light as well, but it wasn’t directly over the set. However the fluorescent light in our basement seems to be more yellow in hue…or maybe that’s because the paint on the walls is warmer in tone? The set…[Read more]
@austinvinar, currently my photography work centers on stock/blog and product photography. At this point I’m not shooting portraits regularly or shooting weddings, so having the newest version of Lr isn’t a high priority for me. 🙂
You mentioned GIMP in your post earlier! I’m curious to know if it layers pictures (multiple shots of the same set…[Read more]
@buddingphotographer, I’m amazed at how much you know technically about photography! 🙂 Thanks for your input. This will be great to refer back to.
@jamesstaddon, thanks for the explanation of DPI and PPI! Makes sense! 🙂 And thanks so much for taking the time to mention it on the webinar. I’m excited to actually check it out tonight!
1. Using K for White Balance in Camera. While doing a product shoot today with studio lights and a white back drop, I found myself wrestling with the WB. I ended up just shooting in Auto WB, even after experimenting with customized K. Are there any good rules of thumb for figuring out a specialized white balance?
2. As a photographer who posts…[Read more]
I received the LR 5 (packaged disc) as a gift and it has worked great for my photography needs. Since photography is just a part of my main occupation the one time cost has been ideal. I have started to feel the need for Photoshop…but at present my hope is to either acquire it as a disc or check out something like GIMP for some of those extra…[Read more]
