A few weekends ago, I had the good pleasure of photographing a wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel In Westlake Village, here in Southern California. As it is a trademark of my own style and part of the standards at my studio, (Lin & Jirsa) …I of course took a few minutes to go out side with the bride and groom later in the evening to shoot some portraits under the full moon.
In this weeks instalment of Tuesdays With Lauri, we will be taking a sneak peak at one of the chapters in my new WW2 inspired conceptual photography tutorial on DVD. In this chapter, I go in-depth and breakdown the first three-light cinematic lighting setup that I used in my photograph, “The Wounded Soldier”.
The following is a guest post by Italian artist, Romoli Francesco. With a degree in computer science and mathematics at the University of Pisa, he recently studied photography at the center of contemporary photography Fondazione Studio Marangoni in Florence.
In my never ending quest to market, find “my” clients and get my images in front of people I came up with this idea to try to kill three birds with one stone. One of my good friends was the manager of our local Gold’s Gym so I approached her with the idea of my employee of the month program. There is not an employer on planet earth who’s employees would not love a nice perk that showed what they do, day in and day out, is appreciated by the company.
Yesterday I posted about some great food photography tips and I wanted to try some of them out. So I grabbed my equipment and setup in my dining room. I wanted to get a shot of something that was delicious, something that could inspire my wife to cook me more goodies. So I chose to shoot one of my wife’s homemade sticky buns.
In this article, Craig Lamere shows you how to create a great and unique portrait using a few dollars worth of fabric from a local fabric store, and of course a good dose of creativity.
In today’s episode of How We Shot it we are going to talk about wedding portraits in night-time scenarios, in a dramatic outdoor hotel courtyard setting.
Achieving an image such as this may be relatively easy these days, with incredibly sharp ultra-wide lenses and extremely high-resolution DSLRs at our disposal.
In this video, Matthew Saville describes the various methods and options available for creating a slow motion blur during bright sunny conditions. For anyone who knows the “Sunny Sixteen” rule, if your aperture is at f/16 then a perfect exposure at ISO 100 would be 1/100 sec, and a perfect exposure at ISO 400 would be 1/400 sec, and so on. However this image was created at f/13, ISO 100, and 2.0 seconds.
Let’s start out by talking a little bit about this photograph. This photo is a very important to me, for many reasons:
For this week’s “Tuesdays With Lauri”-article I decided to go way back into my archives and pulled out this image called “Anger”. Today we will take a quick look at the story behind the photograph, and then after that I’ll provide you with a step-by-step breakdown of the editing process.
In this episode of “How We Shot It”, we’re going to talk about how to pre-visualize, set up, and capture the original frames that would go into a final image such as this vertical panorama of a tidepool at sunset.
