From the COOPH YouTube Channel:
 
The COOPH team wanted to bring their images to life, so we have created this video to show you exactly how we did it – using some epic Cinemagraph ideas that anyone can try! Cinemagraphs are still essentially photographs in which a small and repetitive movement is shown. They are super cool, easy to make and are sure to make your future social media posts stand out from the crowd! So, take a look at these six tips and try them out for yourself!
 
Note: For the mirror reflection portrait, I can't help but think the cinemagraph might have been more interesting if the focus had been on the subject rather than the subject's reflection. What do you think? [Sean]

From the Adorama YouTube Channel:
 
Most photography has with one thing in common... all the photos are taken at eye height. But if you want to give your portraits a new look consider mixing up your shooting height.
 
In this video Gavin Hoey shows you how getting down low or higher up then your model can radically change the look and emphasis of a portrait. Low level shots can change the background and emphasize the foreground and high shots can be framed to completely remove the background that you see when shooting at eye height.
 
After Gavin has shared his shooting tips he goes on to try out all three shooting heights while taking portraits in a field of flowers.

From Canon Europe:
 
Watch wedding photographer and Canon ambassador Félicia Sisco, as she talks about shooting bridal portraits with the newly-released Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM lens. What does she look for in the perfect prime for portraits? One of Félicia’s secrets to getting a flattering look in her images is shooting at her favourite focal length, 85mm. "With an 85mm lens, I can do everything, close-up portraits and full-length shots". She enjoys the versatility to shoot both unposed, spontaneous images and editorial style setups make her appealing to brides-to-be. Félicia likes to shoot with fast shutter speeds, ideally around 1/2000 sec, so in lower light increases the ISO setting to compensate. “Every little girl looks in the mirror and wants to look beautiful, and on the wedding day, in her bridal dress, her dreams come true..."

In this video, photographer Ab Sesay explains his technique for getting maximum saturation from using gels. If you want to skip the needlessly lengthy video (not all of the meter readings taken were necessary to explain the concept or arrive at the preferred settings, but I'm sure Sekonic appreciated how many times the photographer used one of their meters), I'll cut to the chase for you – set your gelled lights to underexpose the areas they hit, and keep other light sources (such as an ungelled main light) from spilling onto that area. Voilà, instant saturation. The more underexposed the gelled light is in your image (as long as it is still perceptible), the more saturated it is.
 
And don't misunderstand me; a light meter is a very handy device for studio and on-location photography and videography work. However, in this particular instance, I question the value of metering your ungelled lights just to see how much light each gel is blocking. You can likely skip that step, attach the gels and meter them to achieve the desired underexposure (as Sesay mentions, about 1.5 stops under the main light), knowing that different gels will require different flash power levels to achieve the precise exposure you're going for.
