Here are some tasters for you
Getting The Perfect Portrait Every Time – a great piece from master photographers outlining tips and tricks on how to achieve that perfect portrait, every time you get behind the lens. David Ziser hosts this fabulous tutorial, making it widely available for everyone to enjoy and gain some behind-the-scenes information from.
Make Your Own Canvas Portrait – a short but awesome post on how to create your very own canvas portraits. Even if this is something you don’t have an immediate plan for, this great post is highly informative and left me personally with a lot of new creative ideas.
Lighting Basics: Hard Light and Soft Light – an absolutely detailed and highly informative article on different lighting, how it effects photography and how best to employ it. This is an in-depth article, sure to shed some light on this subject for most photographers, if you’ll pardon the pun.
Learning to See (Part 3) – seriously profound, this series of pictures and accompanying story will leave you feeling something, no doubt about it. Master photographer and writer Tom Dinning shares a personal story that is punctuated with the most incredible imagery, sure to move all those who take it in. As the story unfolded, I had a strong sense I knew where we were going with it, but each and every word, each and every picture, was taken in like the finest square of chocolate or a sip of the finest whiskey.
Pyestock – The Gates Of The River Styx – easily one of my picks of this week, Mark Blundell roars onto the photography scene with this picture that will leave you with as many questions as answers. Incredible photography and processing merge to create this absolutely incredible piece. A great accompanying write-up explains the setting, leaving the viewer yearning for much, much more.
