Print your own gorgeous Clicktique entries with Epson Stylus Photo R3000 Printer

I am massively upgrading my printer (don't ask!).  Accordingly, I am selling my hardly used Epson Stylus Photo R3000 printer.  Prints up to 13" x 19" prints.  I just ran out of Vivid Light Magenta ink . . . and have a brand new cartridge of such to install.  I also have brand new, unopened Matte Black and Yellow cartridges . . . and TWO brand new, unopened Photo Black cartridges.   That's roughly $150.00 of ink!!   Total price . . . $300.00.  Do the math as to what the price of the printer comes out to.  To a KCC member I am happy to let you try the printer to see if you are happy with it.  It really...

Stop Thinking Like A Film Photographer

Bruce just finished an article on advanced camera exposure modes (like aperture priority) and the differences between film and digital cameras after discussing the three camera controls affecting exposure and their artistic side effects. He gives his opinion on how much control you can afford to give the camera and the consequences of giving away control. He was motivated to write this article over a year ago when digital cameras were missing what he considered the most important of the semi-manual modes. The article should provide an interesting perspective even for experienced photographers (or your money back). The article is on our website, which he is trying to redecorate, so this link is actually to our blog, where you can leave...

You Are Invited

An invitiation from SFNPCC:   Capturing the Field With any foundational book for history enthusiasts a driving and walking tour is essential to understanding the events that took place on the hallowed ground. What makes those tours effective is the use of modern photography to give readers and visitors the orientation and the “what am I looking at” answers. With all the books published in the Emerging Civil War Series, the photographs are taken by the authors or editor (who are all members of the Emerging Civil War blog) and need to be of a particular resolution so the picture is distinguishable when published in black and white. With well-over 100 photographs, both historic and modern, in each book, this is...

Reading, viewing and learning

Hi guys, I wanted to share with you some of the photographers and teachers I've been following for almost two years (more for some of them).

Serge Ramelli http://www.photoserge.com/ Serge is French (like he likes to remind) and proposes tons of Lightrooms tutorials (the most numerous), Photoshops tutorials and shares his experience as a professional photographer. Many of his tutorials are free but he also proposes courses. Aaron...

Movement effects with flash

  I have submitted this image to the Digital Photo Challenge "Flash Photography" and asked by John McKnight if I could share the technique used for this effect. This particular photo was taken with a combination of slow shutter speed, zoom burst and obviously flash. Since I avoid as much as possible the use of direct flash, I bounced my flash over my shoulder into the ceiling and the wall to my right. The idea is to get a softer light effect that a direct flash would have produced. The way you do it is by zooming in (or out) and then firing your photo. Your main subject(s) will be frozen up to a certain extent and creating the burst effect...b2ap3_thumbnail__WWR1351-4.jpg

The Simple Light: How to Take a Great Passport Photo

The Simple Light: How to Take a Great Passport Photo
I've mentioned my "On Camera Flash" class the main resources that I use for learning and improving my knowledge of the use of light, like flashes, modifiers, big lights, small lights etc. The Strobist blog (www.strobist.com) is a fenomenal resource with almost unlimited great information about lighting. It is run by David Hobby, just Google his name and you'll understand what I mean, he has more than 800,000 followers in Google+. I found this post about how to take a great passport photo fantastic. We can sometimes achieve great results with a minimum amount of gear and this is a perfect example. Correct exposure and  simple bouncing, direction of light and reflecting techniques, as I've tried to convey during my flash...

The Critique Part 2 of 2

There are different reasons to create a photograph. Some photos are snapshots that are intended to be a general reminder of a vacation, trip, or family gathering. It is important for these images to meet the compositional guidelines discussed in The Critique - part 1 of 2 so they will be interesting to our viewers. Other photographs are created as fine art to be sold or hang on our walls as a decoration. The cliché image should not be discounted in the growth of a photographer or as a vacation (been-there-done-that) photo. The cliché or vacation snapshot is important to the memory of a place visited. The viewers of our “snapshot” photographs will appreciate them because they are familiar and there is...b2ap3_thumbnail_Blog-Photo-Little-Yellow-Butterflies.jpg

The Critique - part 1 of 2

Few things stifle photographic creativity like a critically judgmental opinion; few things improve photographic vision like honest critical feedback, and an open mind. Despite the importance of a critique, typically, the first response is defensive, even though we do not need to defend our photographs. This is where an open mind is important. When listening too, or reading a critique, take it for what it is worth. Does it sound like an opinion, or statement of idea, or concept? Does it have a basis in art, study, or technical methodology, or is it simply a like or dislike. It is at this point that the photographer has to determine if what is being said is useful, does it make sense. What...b2ap3_thumbnail_Critique-Me-02.jpg

Last night, more than 70 KCC members and guests had the opportunity to enjoy a fabulous  presentation by  Miami photojournalist Al Diaz who is a member of The Miami Herald news team that won the Pulitzer Prize Gold Medal for the newspaper's coverage of Hurricane Andrew and the McClatchy President's Award for Journalism Excellence for coverage of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, just to mention a few.   Al talked about the ins and outs about photo journalism at the Herald, including news and sports, a breakdown of the lighting used to create Marlin's owner Jeff Loria portrait, portrait shoots with Labron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Many questions came from the attentive audience about techniques, camera settings and equipment...b2ap3_thumbnail__WWR5789-2-wm.jpg
