All photographers have their own way of doing things. The workflow differs, but it is essentially the same thing. But since we are all human, we often forget or overlook certain things. This article might overlook something as well, but I will try to point everything out.
A good portrait draws the viewer in to the subject, creating a connection between the two. It should provoke thought and intrigue, making you wonder what the subject is thinking at the time the shot was taken. If there is one part of the face that can communicate this the most, it is the eyes. Beautiful, sharply focused eyes grab your attention and hold it there, they can make or break a portrait, but there is an art to getting pin sharp eyes, a lot of it in the technique used to take the shot, some of it in the post-production. Let’s take a look at what we can do to get those eyes sharp.
A wedding is a sacred moment for many people. A wedding photographer is hired to document that moment, as discretely as possible, without ruining the fun and moment for anybody. As easy as this may sound, this is a task which many professionals fail to accomplish the right way. Photographing a wedding means that you need to be everywhere, but not obstruct anything. In addition, keep in mind that your photographs will need to be top notch from the get-go because there is no “let’s try again” or “don’t worry, we will reschedule”.
It’s October and that frightful time of year is upon us in many countries around the globe. Halloween. For kids, it’s costumes of ghosts, goblins, princesses, movie characters and animals.

We’ll explore subjects that automatically evoke a creepy, eerie sensation using techniques of 1) harsh editing 2) silhouettes 2) shadows 4) exposure 5) distortion and 6) movement.

This was taken from the window of our self-catering unit at the Granary Suites, which is located over a river in Galway, Ireland (great place!). I’m thinking about doing something extreme with this, because although the bird is nice, I’m disappointed in the lack of detail in the feathers, and there’s nothing but darkness around […]
