Over the Valentine's day holiday this year, the National Retail Federation estimates that
consumers in the US will spend roughly $2 billion on floral arrangements.
As such, I think it's safe to say that many of our site visitors will be purchasing flowers very soon (or have already done so) to show appreciation for a special loved one on this special occasion.
Unfortunately, unless a potted plant is gifted, the floral arrangement will not likely look as pristine and beautiful in the days/weeks following February 14th as the effects of time takes its toll on each once-vibrant petal.
Yes, you may put a preservative in the water to stretch the life of your floral gift as long as possible, but ... that solution is not nearly as long-lasting as another available to you.
Your camera holds the easy solution for extending the practical life of your floral gift.
By using your camera, you can capture the fleeting beauty of your loved one's flower arrangements and immortalize your thoughtfulness in the form of a
A print represents the physical manifestation of a memory – in this case, a very good one – that can pay heartwarming dividends year-round.
You can employ your DSLR and a general purpose lens,
a large window (or strobes) and a collapsible/muslin background to create a traditional still life photo of your bouquet.
Otherwise, you can attach your macro lens to commemorate the beauty of a single flower.
The possibilities are endless, and your loved one will likely enjoy displaying their new sentimental print on a prominent wall.
Make plans now to photograph the flowers you are going to give (if they will not remain available to you) or have already given.
Pick out your favorite (or a few of them) and get those prints on order for the second wave of gifting.
When am I am on assignment to cover a concert, I am generally photographing two bands, the opener and headliner, and usually get to shoot the first three songs of each act. Photographers tend to wait inside venues longer than they are taking photos, unless they are shooting directly for the band. We are usually anticipating the start of the show, trying to do things to pass the time. Sometimes we know other photographers there on assignment, but not always. And that gives you a chance to meet new people. Usually, it’s the fans standing against the rail waiting for their favorite band to start who strike up a conversation with you. They have waited for hours outside on the entrance line, sometimes in extreme heat, or extreme cold, to get the best spot up front. But then about 15 minutes before show time someone like me walks in, and gets right in front of them. And they want to know how…why…who they are.
So we strike up a conversation. These die-hard fans love music, and they, lots of times, have some type of camera on them, taking photos to keep as memories and to share with their friends on social media. And the question I always get from these fans is “How do I do what you do? How did you get started?” So today I am here to tell you the best way to be on my side of the rail.
What sets a professional photographer apart from everyone else is the ability to create the perfect light. Los Angeles-based portrait photographer Sue Bryce has spent decades creating contemporary fashion-inspired portraiture that makes everyday women look like Vanity Fair fashion models. And she built an international reputation using natural light almost exclusively. Recently, though, she has fallen in love with the Profoto B1.
“I started seeing studio lights the way I see, use and master natural light. I bounce and zig-zag it the same way I do with natural light. The B1 is extraordinary, and it has the ability to dial down to low, soft light with big modifiers so I can create the exact same daylight I have been working with for the last 27 years. I can shoot at any time of the day and still control the light”.
As I've mentioned this several times, this is my favorite camera strap and one that I use on a daily basis. I highly recommend it. And if you want to modify your BlackRapid strap for Arca-style plate compatibility, here's what you'll need. [Sean]
North America will experience a wonderful astronomical event on August 21, 2017 - a total eclipse of the sun. This hasn’t happened in the United States in 38 years and is the first one to race across the entire country since 1918! This will be the first total eclipse in North America in the digital photography era, and that means that everyone from novice to professional photographers will be able to photograph it.
We are embracing this rare phenomenon and will publish articles, photos and videos between now and August to give you the necessary photographic skills and background information to capture this eclipse.
Considering the path of totality and partial eclipse phases, almost a half billion people will have the opportunity to view at least a partial eclipse. Millions will undoubtedly travel to the narrow path of totality stretching from Oregon to South Carolina. It’s estimated that about 225 million people live within a day’s drive of the path of totality.
Areas north and south of the totality path will see a partial eclipse. The partial eclipse will be visible as far north as the Arctic, and to the south as far as Ecuador and Brazil.
You don’t need to be a seasoned pro. Anybody will be able to shoot this with the proper precautions but if you really want to do it up right, you’ll need to plan ahead.
