Clouds live outside.
Clouds don't belong in indoor pictures. This was taken on stage just before read more
Taking pictures outdoors means weather. Adventure photography usually means I'm outdoors for a long time, exposed to far rougher weather than some headshots in a park. My two main digital camera options these days are a Canon 5d, and a Sony A7. The biggest issue with my Sony a7 is the lack of weatherproofing. The Canon 5d, while very well weather sealed, is a heavy beast.
Style matters. Actors and lawyers both need headshots, but the images convey very different messages. That's why I always ask my clients how you're going to use these photos.
When you need new company headshots, or a team photo of everyone, consider these points to make sure the photos match your company's brand identity and story.
This year has seen a lot of changes in our family. While Cathy was working on Cora, I was renovating the 3rd floor of our house. We needed a nursery, and we were on a deadline.
Naturally, I had to shoot a baby-bump progression series. The soon-to-be nursery made a great backdrop.
Love it or hate it, Pokemon Go is everywhere. If you hate it, then you're probably not reading this. You also don't care how to take better pictures within the game. But, if you're like over 65 million other people, then you're trying to catch 'em all.
Mistakes can be valuable, as long as we learn from them. Time and experience help prevent experts from making mistakes. When experts do make mistakes, they know how to catch them before it's too late. In photography, its possible for an un-caught mistake to ruin a whole photoshoot. That's a big problem for events you can't re-create like sports photography or wedding photography. That's why it's good to trust an expert.
Photo documenting a build process can be simple, if a good lighting set-up is already in place. My "wood shop" is in my basement. Basements aren't known for great lighting. That's why I buy daylight-balanced lights. They're designed to shine at 5,000k instead of 4,400k. I love these LED fluorescent-replacements. That color difference improves the feeling of working down there. I shot this whole post on my phone. Having a thoughtfully lit work area helps simplify photo-documenting the process.
