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.

Using Manual Mode

Using the manual mode

Digital SLR cameras, and for that matter Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens cameras both come with the manual shooting option. Look for something on the main mode dial that says ‘M’. Switch to this and you are now in the manual mode. The terms ‘manual option’, or the ‘manual mode’ are used interchangeably. They both mean the same thing, metering a scene manually to take a picture. Professionals will always use this mode, on the other hand, amateurs will be skeptical using it the first time. Most amateurs will probably never use this mode because they find it extremely difficult to adjust the exposure to correctly meter a scene. The reason is most don’t quite properly understand the concepts of exposure in the first place.

Introduction to Shooting 50mm prime

Together with the 35mm lens a 50mm fixed focus lens is considered to be standard prime. The photography world is polarized between these two primes with each group having its distinct favorite. In this article we shall look at the 50mm prime lens and walk through some of its features and disadvantages.

[B]Benefits[/B]

A prime lens is essentially a lens with a single focal length. Unlike zoom lenses, there’s simply isn’t a way to turn a ring and zoom forward. What you get, however, as a compensation for its inability to zoom, is a blindingly fast aperture. All those high speed photography freaks can hope to use shutter speeds of 1/4000th of a second and higher when pairing their full-frame camera with this lens. Additionally, the 50mm is the closest when it comes to the angle of view that the human eye has. Thus the name ‘standard prime’.

    Corner Resource Center Catch-Up #3

    As I slow make progress catching up adding articles, tutorials and product reviews to the Corner Resource Center, I’ll keep you posted on the blog. I decided, before I write the May Newsletter, I’d do 3 more resources (so the newsletter might not go out until late tonight, or some time tomorrow). We have an article, a tutorial and a product review to keep you busy for a while.

    Corner Resource Center Catch-Up #1

    If anyone has submitted an article or tutorial to me over the past 6 or so months, they’ve probably been disappointed that it has yet to show up in the Corner Resource Center. I’ve gotten behind, and the longer I left it, the more that piled up. Eventually it became too big of a mountain to climb, and they just sat in a folder, collecting virtual dust, on my desktop. Well, no more, I say!! I’m going to climb this mountain and get these great articles & tutorials done!

    Articles By Amy: How To Shoot Waterfalls

    If you’ve ever photographed a waterfall you’ll understand why people go back again and again and shoot them. When I lived in Victoria, Australia, I would take a trip for a day or a weekend and shoot many shots of Stevenson’s Falls. If you are fortunate to live near the Rockies in Canada or the USA then you will have a fantastic time applying what I am about to show you through some handy techniques.
