Photo By Valerie Millett Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Discovery Landscapes Assignments” by Valerie Millett.

A good photographer has a lot in common with an accomplished sculptor. Both must meticulously chip away at what confronts him or her and chisel away distracting elements until only the essentials remain. Armed with the camera, the photographer sorts out the chaos and whittles away the negative to remove clutter. Just as a sculptor smooths over the edges of the final piece, we have to bring harmony to all we see to round out the final composition before we press the shutter. In regard to photography, I’m a stout proponent of less is more. This brings me to the point of this week’s tip—KISS: Keep It Simple And Splendid. By judiciously creating a beneficial camera angle or by being selective...animal photography techniques

Photo By Koustav Maity Today’s Photo Of The Day is “That’s Funny” by Koustav Maity. “That must be a very funny joke shared by the doting mother,” says Maity. “The baby sure wanted to hear more, as for baby orangutans, mom is the best friend for the first five to 10 years.

Spring officially arrived at my home in Parker, Colorado, the other day. I knew this because I heard my first house wren of the year. This tiny bird, with its wonderful, melodious and happy bubbling song, is a true harbinger of spring where I live. The bird, a male, sat in my garden and trilled a happy good morning for all to hear. I grabbed my camera and telephoto zoom and decided to start the new season out with some photography. House wren singing in my garden, Parker, Colorado. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Tamron 150-600mm G2 F/5-6.3 Di VC USD lens at 600mm. Exposure: 1/250 sec., ƒ/8, ISO 800. The wren was just the kick-start I needed to simply take...wildlife photography near home, sparrow in city park

We’ve heard the news, and we’re all a bit paranoid. It’s understandable. But, the economy is suffering, and so are our jobs and projects. Our clients aren’t calling, because the industry has come to a standstill. It’s said that we should (hopefully) have a vaccine by the end of next year, so for the immediate future, we will need to adapt. [ Read More ]Original linkOriginal author: Wouter du Toit

I know as a writer and educator that it is important to note the operating system differences in Lightroom Classic when they come up. I also know as a human being who uses the software primarily on one operating system that it is easy to lose sight of those differences sometimes. So, in the interests of helping those folks who are not dual-operating system fluent and encounter those places where there is a difference, this post is for you. Thankfully, there really aren’t that many differences, but I know that when they come up and when are not called out, it can be very frustrating for the reader (I know because I hear from those people). I’ll start with the most...

By Skip Cohen Sponsored For those of you who don’t know my background, I’ve spent my life in the photography industry. And in all those years, I’ve never been involved with any company or products I didn’t honestly believe in. When asked to join the Platypod team last September, l accepted because of two things—the owners of the company and the quality of the products. While I wasn’t involved in Platyball’s design, I’ve been part of the team every step of the way, helping to educate the industry, starting with why the world needed to be turned upside down. Tripods haven’t changed since the 1820s. Years later, tripod heads came along, and it wasn’t until the 90’s that Arca Swiss set...

If you’ve downloaded some free LUTs from the Web (or you got my own personal set of LUTs from attending my “Ultimate Photography Crash Course” seminar), getting them installed is easy — but it’s absolutely not obvious. In fact, I’d say it was hidden about as well as Adobe’s ever hidden anything (and they are masters at making things “undiscoverable” and if you have doubts about that last statement, watch the video I did below: I wasn’t kidding was I? OK, go find some LUTs; get in my Lightroom, and start adding those looks! I’m In Houston & LA In Just a Couple of Weeks!
