Can't find a model? Check the mirror!

As another weekend approaches, another great photo idea pops into my mind. Only problem is, I need someone to model for this shot. Nobody is available, though. And that ad I've been meaning to put up on Craig's List didn't happen again this week. Ugh! What to do? Got it! I'll use my remote clicker and tripod and get in front of the camera myself. I'm not the best looking model, but a lot of the time buyers are looking for average people.The best $30 I ever spent was on my remote clicker. Set... continue reading

Thoughts upon reaching 1000 images on line.

Three weeks ago I received my Dreamstime check for $1000 but was 50 images short of 1000 so thinking about it I decided to invest in hiring a model. I wanted to capture images of the quality of these four which I envy.So I visited a web site of a local studio and found the e-mail address of a well experienced model....... she had a lot more experience than I required !! I bought in flowers and a red umbrella and couldn't wait for the appointed day. I even bought high power cool lights and... continue reading

Off-camera flash

Light from the camera - bad. Light from a side of the camera - good. This is the shortest way to express the simple truth that light from a side gives more texture and 3D feel to a picture.If you are new to this world of off-camera lighting, there's a space which is absolutely a must - StrobistFrom the basics to more complicated operations. I highly recommend it.I just love experimenting with off-camera flash, some of the results can be found here, on DT. So far I am triggering the strobe... continue reading

Make a List... Check it Twice... and Check What's on the List, too.

I was recently asked to photograph a celestial event for a friend -- one that occurs only every 18 years. I was thrilled but also a little apprehensive. I'd have one shot to get it right.I made a list of everything I needed. And I checked it again and again as the day approached. But, as luck would have it (or lack thereof), things didn't go according to plan.The day before the big event, I took my camera and tripod out for a normal day of shooting. The camera returned home with me. The tripod... continue reading
