new tamron wide-angle lens marks 40 years of sp range

Tamron has released details and pricing of its new SP 35mm f/1.4 Di USD wide-angle prime lens, which has been designed to offer premium quality performance with full-frame Canon and Nikon DSLRs.

inspiring creative techniques

Creative photography is a wide-reaching term that incorporates an almost unlimited variety of techniques, styles and artistic intentions. This makes decisions about what is appropriate for any given subject or location challenging, especially for inexperienced photographers who are yet to master the essential techniques of the medium. At its most basic, creative photography is the production of images that show the world in a unique way, in a departure from how we see the subject every day, with our own eyes. This can be as simple as choosing a composition that presents the subject from an unusual perspective, or as complex as utilising advanced, multi-source, off-camera lighting setups. The first step to next-level creative images is to address each aspect of the image-taking process in isolation, and then make informed choices…

experiment with creative lighting

Lighting is the element of the environment that gives a subject shape and depth. In most conditions the photographer has ambient light to work with, and must decide if the addition of extra artificial lighting is necessary to control shadow density and enhance contrast. In studio environments, the balance of lighting is tipped towards artificial sources, meaning extra precision is required when setting up studio strobes or off-camera speedlights, with a view to yielding a pleasing distribution of highlights and shadows. For creative purposes, we can experiment with the way we use natural and artificial light in tandem, by altering how much each one contributes to the total lighting in the frame, for a variable relative balance. The first step in any creative lighting workflow is to assess the ambient illumination,…

explore creative exposure

Exposure is arguably the most important consideration in the photographic process, since the amount of light reaching the camera’s sensor directly influences all image characteristics, including brightness, detail and colour. Regarding brightness, the intensity and position of light sources within the frame is of utmost relevance, as this controls where viewers first look within the composition. While correctly using this device is a basic photographic skill, extra care must be taken when attempting creative techniques. It’s easy for the photographer to become preoccupied with their artistic intent, thereby forgetting the implications for baseline composition and image quality. The relationship between exposure and colour is another often overlooked factor, and must be acknowledged when altering either component, if a predictable result can be achieved. This symbiosis can either make or break a…
