    by Ellenboughn | 25th of November, 2008

    by Ellenboughn | 21st of May, 2008

    There is a continuing dust up between those who claim that commercial photography isn’t art and that the photos in museums and galleries shouldn’t be sullied by appearing in promotions or ads. Not withstanding the fact that most photographers that fall into the ‘collectible... More
  • Spectator Sports

    by Ellenboughn | 1st of April, 2008

    As a photographer you need to be the most focused of all spectators at sporting events not only to make the best images but to keep from getting into the action yourself. To see what happens when a photographer forgets where he is, go to this video before reading on. There... More
  • The Eyes Have It

    by Ellenboughn | 26th of March, 2008

    Facial expressions and body language can either make or break a photo. Again and again we see images that would be successful if only there was emotion in the image instead of a subject with a bored look or a blank stare. How can you get your models more engaged with your... More

  • Not Just a Pretty Face

    by Ellenboughn | 9th of March, 2007

    Facial expressions send strong messages about what an image is trying to say...what the image is about. Unfortunately, a model's lack of expression can sometimes cause the photo to say next to nothing. One expression to avoid is the pouty-pouty runway model blank look that... More

  • Keep it handy

    by Melodyanne | 11th of April, 2016
