  • Created discussion thread Weird Photography Habits
    Do any of you have strange/quirky/weird habits that are unique to you regarding photography, or oddball preferences regarding photography? 1. I buy the Nikon version of everything, even if the ...
  • I used to be an Auto WB / adjust the RAW guy, but if you're shooting portraits it's not a great idea to try and fumble your way to the right skin tones in post. Having your model hold a ...
  • Thanks for the heads up! I redesigned the site recently and thought I had ironed out all the kinks. How did you achieve the orange underglow in that second image?
  • Those are really good, I especially like the second one.
  • I use a D3300 and kit lenses, and just try and get the most out of them. I'm not upgrading until I really see the need. IQ is a small part of making a photo. Technically Image Quality is really ...
  • Created discussion thread Post your best portrait
    Post what you think is the best portrait you've ever taken - I wanna see everyone's different styles.
  • Recording for long stretches of time is the famous Achilles Heel of DSLR's. Most DSLRs stop after 20-30 minutes of recording and are prone to heat issues. Camcorders are your best bet - as for the ...

  • Created discussion thread What makes lenses different?
    Let's just talk "image quality" here and drop all utility considerations - weight, size, durability, AF speed, minimum focus distance, and control ergonomics - and assume we are comparing lenses ...
  • It's the lighting ratio that's important. Putting the light behind your subject dramatically increases the lighting ratio, i.e. the amount of light on your model is much less than the amount of ...
  • 2015 I think It doesn't matter if you're shooting with a little light or a lot of light - the only requirement is to put all the light in the back and have none coming from the front. In direct sun ...
  • Replied in SOOC
    These are straight out of my Nikon D3300 with budget lenses, no retouching of any kind. I know people are going to assume it's retouched anyway. In my experience, though, getting the effect the ...
  • Created discussion thread Fall Hipster Shoot
    ...alright she's not quite a hipster, but I had to get your attention somehow. She's my friend and thinking of getting into modelling, but she's not sure she's got the stuff. She's quite shy and ...
  • Thanks for the responses! In case you wanted to see the results of the shoot... This shoot did exceed my expectations given I'm using an entry-level D3300 and budget lenses. My model was so ...
  • Like others mentioned you just missed focus. Check the hair if you want to find an image's focal plane. Also, although it is tempting to use your shiny new 50mm prime at f/1.8, (understandably, ...
  • Just give them the For Dummies guide to their camera and get them out there shooting. It's quite hard to translate the written word into photography skill. You could read ten books on the subject ...
  • Depends on the scene. I own 4 speedlights but I don't really need to use all four unless I am doing a big setup like a model in a big dark parking garage with sports cars. For this pic I had 2 ...
  • Granted, but the problem runs a bit deeper than that. Check out my Instagram for other portraits. Those photographer's pics would stand way taller than anything in my portfolio, I want to know how ...
  • Created discussion thread Taking It to the Next Level
    I'd like some advice from the more experienced crowd here. I've hit a plateau with my portraits. The above is a test shot I did yesterday for a shoot I'm doing later today. Posing aside, I'm ...
