three simple questions to improve your photography

Learn to turn your snapshots into artistic photographs by asking yourself 3 simple questions: 1) What: What do you like and What do you like about it? 2) How: How can you exaggerate those features and elements? 3) Why: Why did you choose the settings and composition you did? ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Howdy! I’m Josh Cripps, head photo nerd here at Pro Photo Tips. I discovered nature photography in late 2006 and was instantly and irreversibly hooked. Somewhere along the way I discovered that I love teaching other photographers all the little tips, tricks, and chunks of knowledge I’ve learned over the years. And while I do love teaching workshops, in 2014 I decided I wanted to reach more photographers, and to help photographers around the world improve their skills. I recorded a few videos…

video tutorial: how to best photograph a destination you've never been before

I know, this is a monster-length video! But, I really wanted to give you insight into what goes on in photographing a destination like Florence. This was actually a viewer question. Someone wanted to know how I can possibly photograph an entire city in just a couple days, especially a city I've never been before. Thus, I thought my time in Florence, Italy served as the perfect location to show you what goes into a day in a life of a travel photographer. This shows what goes into photographing a destination you've never been before. In short, it comes down to research, planning, and then executing that photography plan. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: I'm Brendan van Son, a travel photographer and YouTuber originally from Canada. I’ve been living the nomadic life for 9…

These Game of Thrones character posters are simple yet powerful. As fans of the show, my friends and I wanted to recreate the images using ourselves as models. The results were a success, and everyone had a lot of fun posing for these portraits. The lighting is an easy 1-light setup, the costume work is minimal due to the tight crop of the portrait, and the post-production work is low. Here’s how we created our spin-off… EQUIPMENT • Photoflex OctoDome Extra Small Kit with “Eggcrate” Soft Grid Alternative: 17” Beauty Dish with grid or any smaller light modifier with grid• C-Stand with Boom Arm• Nikon SB-910 Flash• DSLR camera I used a Nikon D800• Portrait lens I used a Nikon 85mm f/1.8G.
