WE RECENTLY CONDUCTED a survey on our website about photo editing and enhancement. One of the results we thought was most interesting is that the overwhelming majority of you who responded, 83%, learned what you know about digital imaging on your own, without formal training. Also notable: Books and magazines were indicated as the most popular ways to learn about photography, beating out websites by a small margin. Tips and instructional articles have been a core part of our DNA here at Digital Photo from the beginning. When we launched in 1997, the first truly consumer digital cameras were starting to catch on, but there was really no good source of information about this new technology for photo enthusiasts. We struck a chord, and 15 years later we’re still dedicated to…

EL ROVIA TRAVILER VILLAGE 4849 “I’ve taken photographs most of my adult life,” says Los Angeles-based designer and photographer Marc Shur, “but, for many years, my occupation got in the way of my avocation. However, being an art director and designer did give me many of the skills and tools I use in my photography today. Composition, proportion, color and visual storytelling are key components of good art direction and good photography. “Another plus about being a designer is that I often get to work with incredible photographers. I’m mostly self-taught, but I’ve learned a lot over the years from watching them. “I started the ‘Sign Language’ project about a year ago when I was looking for a creative expression outside of my normal design work. The experience has helped focus my vision…

stories through sequence

One photo can tell a story. The elements within the frame convey feelings through composition, light, texture and color. But, for me, sometimes one image is just the beginning I’ve always been interested in how you can tell a story through a sequence or series of images, a “sequence” being a group of images taken in succession and a “series” being a collection with similar composition or related content. So if you imagine one frame is just the start, how can you make the photos that join it tell more of the story? Gathering and creating a series or sequence can open your eyes to more possibilities. Movement. When I see movement through my lens—significant movement, like my son doing kicks with a football or a little girl twirling—I shoot in…

it isn’t easy seeing green

I’ve always respected the color green, but I never really appreciated it until I spent a week floating down the lovely Buffalo River, which runs through the Ozark Mountains. Today, whenever I find myself surrounded by deep green forests, backlit leaves and sunlit patches of grassland, I think back to an afternoon on an Ozark slope where I met Thomas Hart Benton, the American painter and muralist best known for his scenes of everyday life in America. I was new at National Geographic and was photographing the Ozarks for a magazine article. Benton was in his 80s, still working hard at his paintings. He sat in a folding canvas chair with his easel balanced on some rocks in front of him. He didn’t mind my photographing him, and we got into…

rock on!

Since the advent of affordable DSLRs, concert and live music photography has become a burgeoning industry for a lot of photographers. Right along with the digital camera revolution, the indie music scene also has flourished, and this has opened up the doors for many photographers, both new and old, to have a shot at photographing live bands. From the ’70s on up through the late ’90s and even into the early 2000s, most live music photographers were highly paid professionals shooting famous rock stars in concert halls for prestigious magazines. With the indie scene booming and many smaller venues opening, as well as the appearance of music blogs and web-based magazines, it has become easier for photographers new to the music business to get involved. Concert and live music photography has…
