Fashion Photography Tips

We see them all over the place; in television advertisements, in magazines, and on the runway. They are the beautiful men and women who strut their stuff while showing off the latest styles from the hottest fashion designers. These are the fashion models of today and tomorrow, and the subject of high fashion photography. It is through photography that these models and fashionable clothing are brought to the public. Therefore, these photographs must be taken with a certain level of precision and a special attention to color, style, and lighting composition. Learning a few key fashion photography tips will help to make this possible.

High fashion photographers such as Mario Testino and Eva Mueller may not be as famous as the models they shoot, but they are actually sought out more than their model counterparts by fashion magazines and designers. While the dream of huge paychecks and hobnobbing with the rich and famous might appeal to the aspiring fashion photographer, it is not easy to become successful in fashion and model photography. For every one talented young photographer who makes it big, there are hundreds are left

Some Basic Photography Tips

Any photography hobbyist would do well to keep their eyes and ears open for photography tips. While some people just seem to pick up on the methods of taking great photographs, others can always use some hints and tricks to help them take their pictures from drab to fab. It may seem a bit overwhelming to think that you can apply all the little so-called secrets that professional photographers employ, but in reality, even some basic photography tips can help turn your photos into something worth bragging about.

Portraits

If you do portraits as a hobby, remember to be creative in your poses and settings. While good photography tips involve keeping things simple, you do need to dress things up a bit when positing portraits. For instance, if you’re going to do a portrait of a couple, don’t just have them sitting and facing the camera. Try getting a profile as they look at each other or a playful pose as one kisses the other’s cheek. Family portraits also mean working on your poses and settings. Again, avoid having them just sitting and

Beginner Photography Tips

With that in mind, I’d strongly advise you to read through the whole article, even if you’re an average amateur, just to freshen up on the mental aspect of photography. I’ve never written an article on my way of thinking when taking pictures, but I think it’s cool because it’s not like your everyday photography.

Learn To See Creatively

The best way to learn to see creatively is to take more photos. The reason being is because the more pictures you take and the more time you spend on your photography , the more you will begin to see things you would normally never see. The eyes of a true photographer, or artist, sees shapes, patterns, light and color when walking down an ally or across a street. For example, let’s imagine I took a photo of a railroad track at night in a big city:

I saw a good photo because of the 1) light reflecting off the metal 2) the contrasts in color between the wood and metal 3) the strong diagonal lines of the

Basic Photography Tip # 1, Visual literacy

Now that so many of us are just clicking away with whatever technological piece of equipment we have, we are seldom giving thought to how and why the image is important, or in what way it might influence others.

Visual literacy is about seeing instead of looking. When getting ready to take that shot, stop for a second to think about what the picture is saying.

Understand that every photograph suggest its own vision and view of the world. When you are getting ready to take that shot, try to pre visualize what is being translated from the three-dimensional reality that is in front of you, onto the two- dimensional space within the frame of the photograph. The camera is only a tool which will help you present your interpretation of what you see to the world.

Basic Photography Tip #2, Visual impact and Appeal

There are many formal values within a photograph, and they may vary. These values consist of composition, proportion, focus, balance, rhythm, and texture among others. Any of these elements will influence the visual impact and appeal of the photograph. But, the

Make Your Wedding Budget

Your wedding is perhaps the biggest celebration you will be a part of. And why not, it is a celebration of a new beginning and new life. To make your wedding the most it can be, here are a few tips that will stretch your budget.

Stick To The Budget

A vendor such as a photographer may offer to give you a special package deal if you add more options. Make sure and think about if it is going to cost you more and if it is really necessary. Weigh your options on what is most important in your budget and don’t change your limit on the less important items.

Compare Vendors

Find out what other vendors are offering for prices. Consider this when talking to vendors and make sure and ask what other costs there will be after everything is said and done. Make sure and compare apples to apples. For instance you may be talking to a videographer that merely gives you the footage of your wedding and charges $750 and another vendor that edits the footage in a more cinematic fashion that charges $2,400. Both are totally different, on both prices

As wedding season approaches, us wedding photographers have one eye at all times on the weather – and another on the constantly shifting requirements of our clients. It’s with this in mind that I thought that this week, I’d put together some hints and tips for how to plan your perfect photography on the wedding day.

1. Be realistic about the photography which is achievable at your venue.

To start with a bit of a dampener – take a good hard look at your venue, your surrounding location and your timings. If you’ve been browsing wedding photographer websites, particularly those set in the beautiful South West locations of Somerset and Devon, you’ll no doubt have been beguiled by gorgeous shots of couples drifting through stunning yellow rapeseed fields, looking out to sea over dramatic cliffs, or dappled in sunshine with evening sunbeams drifting through woods. All these shots, and more, are undeniably beautiful. However, let’s face it, unless you’re getting married next to a wood, a cliff or a rapeseed field, you’re not going to have the time on your wedding day to go out and get these shots – or,

Simple Lighting Techniques When Making a Video

So you’re making a video for the first time. Your first thought may be – where’s the script? And then – how much money is this going to cost? Can dry ice and glitter be involved? At some point, you will need to think about lighting. How do you get that picture-perfect, cinematic quality in the final cut?

The good news is that you don’t have to hire an entire production crew to master professional lighting. Here are three techniques to reduce harsh shadows, disperse light across your subjects, change temperatures or moods, and ensure your video looks and feels like it came straight from Hollywood (or close to it).

1.) Move

Okay – time for set up. You have the lights, but where do you put them? The most basic formula to light your scene is the 3-point system: key, fill, and back. The highest-powered light, key light, should be placed in front of the main subject of your scene. Position another light source to the side of the subject, usually in a lower position to balance shadows and harsh contrasts. Another light is placed behind the subject to separate from the background and

Tips For Picking a Great Stock Footage Clip

There are more stock footage video clips than ever before but that doesn’t mean there is consistent quality with each stock footage clip you search for. There is a vast array of options and choices when hunting for the perfect stock footage clip to use in a video, advertising or PowerPoint presentation project. Searching for a stock footage clip that fits the bill in terms of subject matter and quality of execution can often times be tedious and frustrating. Below is a list of ten tips for picking a great stock footage clip for your next project.

1. Composition

Every great stock footage video clip starts with eye-catching composition. Composition includes the way in which the visual subject is constructed and placed within the frame. More standard composition places the subject in the center of the frame and uses symmetry and balance to compose the picture. A more photographic and stylized approach is to “weight” the frame and place the subject near one of the edges of the frame, which gives the stock footage clip an edgier and more modern look. Visually engaging composition is one of the primary elements of a great stock footage clip
