Forum Spotlight: Photography Equipment

The PhotographyCorner forums are filled with dozens of different forums; from the Conversation Corner and Member Introductions forums, to the Photo Sharing Corner and Critiques & Feedback Corner, to the Premiere Corner, Photography Contests and The Marketplace, and all the other forums in between. One group of forums that is often overlooked however, is the Photography Equipment forums. Almost all of us have a camera (it’s not a necessity around the Corner, though you’ll find that almost everyone that participates around the Corner has at least 1 camera), and the Photography Equipment forums are all about our cameras and accessories. We can talk about our new sigma lenses, the new Olympus dSLR, which filter set you prefer, point-and-shoot cameras, lighting, computers, software, etc.

Video Corner #9: Portrait Photography Tips

This “photography edition” (photography videos every Thursday, post-processing/photoshop videos every Monday - see this post for more details) of the “Video Corner” discusses how your lens choices impact your portraits. Short (wide) lenses can cause distortion and an unrealistic perspective, while longer (zoom) lenses have a narrower angle of view, which helps you avoid capturing too much of the background. In addition, longer lenses allow you to compose multiple shots from the same location.

Articles By Amy: Lenses, Lighting and Portrait Photography

There are few people who haven’t done even the most basic portrait photography. How is that possible? Because every camera owner usually ends up taking a group photograph, or capturing a friend or family member in a “picture”, meaning they have taken a portrait. The differences between such casual images and formal portrait photography may seem numerous, but in fact are really only a matter of setting and attention to detail.

Articles By Amy: What Lenses to Use for Landscape Photography

Articles By Amy: What Lenses to Use for Landscape PhotographyThere a tremendous number of lenses available for digital photographers today, and for those who specialize in landscape imagery there are nice range of lenses at a good array of prices. A search can yield telephoto zoom lenses, super wide angle lenses and traditional or normal to moderate wide angles.

For most photographers, however, investing in numerous and somewhat expensive lenses may be out of the question. If that is the case then an investment in a wide angle 70mm lens is the best choice for great photographs and results. This is because the lens will allow for tight compositions and easy filter use, which, in the end, can provide a tremendous number of options and flexibility within imagery.
