Tips on "aerial" photography by Bryan Peterson

LINE

I am a huge fan of ‘aerial’ photography! In particular, shooting aerials in agricultural areas, and since I believe a great deal in the power of line, there is no better opportunity get compositions of line within these agricultural areas than from above. But just how exactly, other than renting a pilot and helicopter or high-wing airplane, can we high above these many lines that await?

Freezing Action by Bryan Peterson

Another exciting tutorial from Bryan Peterson School of Photography: FREEZING ACTION

Another great excuse to call upon the telephoto lens is to take a very ‘splashy photograph’ without ever getting wet! I was visiting my brother in Seattle during a hot August day, when my brother’s grandson Tyler and a neighbor decided to have a water-fight. I immediately saw the photo opportunity and was soon directing their every move!

Clean Backgrounds By Bryan Peterson

From Bryan Peterson School of Photography: this is the first in a series of tutorials to help you improve your photography skills and elevate your abilities to the next level.

CLEAN BACKGROUNDS

A clean background is often paramount to the success of any image when one wants to emphasize a singular subject, such as a lone flower or a portrait. But clean backgrounds are not always immediately available. Sometimes you can change your point of view, but at other times, you may have move the subject which is far easier to do with people than flowers. Yet, still at other times, in order to get a clean background, you have to ‘make’ your own.
