DAGUERREOTYPE COLLECTION (LIBRARY OF CONGRESS)The French artist Louis Daguerre and his partner Nicéphore Niépce famously created the world’s first photographic process, called the Heliograph, in the 1820s. Images were recorded using a substance romantically named Bitumen of Judea, which reacted to sunlight and then hardened. The remaining pictures from that period are full of images of people, although the detail is so poor and the process so complex that they weren’t really considered photographs in the modern sense.After Niépce died, Daguerre continued developing different image capture techniques, including the eponymous Daguerreotype, which is considered the first true photographic process. In 1838, Daguerre captured a ten-minute exposure of the Boulevard du Temple in Paris, an image that is very similar to the other urban landscape photos he took at the time…

CANON EOS 80DThe 80D—the update to Canon’ popular EOS 70D APS-C DSLR—offers a number of improvements that will make current 70D users seriously consider stepping up. In addition to a new 24-megapixel Dual Pixel CMOS sensor, the 80D’s autofocus system exceeds that of its predecessor, with 45 AF points (vs. the 70D’s 19 AF points) and broader coverage across the frame for easier off-center focus. There are trickle-down features from the EOS 7D Mark II and a mirror vibration control system from cameras like the 5DS. Improved video features are also among the camera’s numerous other updates. List Price: $1,199 (body only); $1,799 (with EF-S 13-135mm lens).

romancing the frame

Although working with more than one subject in your portraiture certainly can present its challenges, when your subject is sharing the frame with a loved one, chances are, capturing expressive photography actually can become a little bit easier. Thankfully, people hire photographers to capture special moments in their lives that are almost always happy occasions, which is another plus.Engagements and weddings may be the most obvious of celebratory events that call for photo documentation. The old-school traditional engagement and wedding portraits have been all but edged out completely by more natural, candid photographs that capture more of a story of both the relationship and the event than portraits of the past might have done. Of course, some trends in photographic styles come and go, that’s true for anything, but the…

portraits with soul

Paying attention to how guests fit into their surroundings is key. In this shot, the natural beauty of the young woman, the soft backlighting and the gentle breeze contributed to create a romantic photograph.Weddings are a wonderful setting to explore portraiture. While the wedding photographer’s job is to capture the bride and groom (as well as the guests) during all the different aspects of the ceremony or celebration, there’s always opportunity to step out of the norm and capture unexpected moments and soulful expressions.It’s tempting to shoot an event frenetically, shooting every occurrence without ever going deeper to explore the more complex aspects of human connection. For that reason, the photographer should always allow himself or herself some unhurried moments to notice what’s happening around him or her. The photographer…
