Shooting outside is excellent. Shooting outside with flash is a pain. Personally, I love making that compromise because it looks freaking amazing. In this article, I explain how to light an editorial type runner shoot outdoors in screaming sunlight using High-Speed Sync.
When getting your photos taken, there are things you rely on your photographer to do well: posing, lighting, and composition. As a client and the subject, you should be able to show up and let the magic happen, right? There are several things you can do to prepare for your photo session and make it…
Alrighty, it’s almost photo time! You’ve picked your portrait session date, we’ve talked about the schedule, where to meet, and brainstormed concepts. There’s a lot going on and I’m sure you’re thinking, “I’m excited, a little nervous, and OMG, WHAT DO I WEAR!?!??!”
Flash portraits guarantee that no matter the situation, you will receive the images you’ve imagined that also stand out from everyone else’s.
I use off-camera flash to highlight the edges of a subject and visually cut them out from the background via rim lighting.
Alright, you’re ready to commit; you want new portraits – wonderful. You open up a browser tab and search for Atlanta Portrait Photographer and, “Holy shitake mushrooms, where do I start?!” Yeah, there are A LOT of us. So how do you sift through the noise?
How often do you find yourself distracted or looking at a mountain of activities with no idea where to start? Do you ever start working on a blog post or editing a design, then you get an email notification, and the next thing you know you’ve searched Google for an hour to answer that client, only to realize you missed your window to finish that original task – which was – wait, what was I working on again?
If you’re a creative who lives without structure or a schedule, you need to wake up and smell the dark roast, because to be successful, time management needs to be your best friend.
