  • Idaho Heritage: Snake River +

    by Willhavenrg | 18th of November, 2014

    I am going to talk more about technique. The reason both these photos work is the shadows.         . I try to think about how they would look on a wall before I pressed the shutter button. The rock makes the second photo. In the albums there is on large... More

    .... Exposure? Check. Rule of thirds? Check. Noise? Check. Focus? Check. White balance? Check. Boring? For sure. Im a photo newbie, so the above checklist is usually quite time consuming to get past. And getting the photo technically correct is important... but... More
  • Color above the shadows

    by Mildegard | 9th of February, 2009

    I don't know if it will be news to you, but want to share anyway. While drawing in Photoshop I always preferred placing color first and adding shadows, midtones and highlights next. One friend gave me an idea to try it vise versa. Place all shadows and highlights, he said,... More
  • Review: Lumiquest Softbox III

    by Bradcalkins | 15th of October, 2008

    I was looking for something small and light that would make a good flash modifier, and soften the light. After getting a couple of payouts from DT, I decided to purchase Lumiquest's new softbox III for $40. It is lightweight, folds flat, and fits in my camera bag (a little... More

  • Races Are Hard Work (Even When You Are Volunteering)!

    by Charlesoutcalt | 30th of March, 2008

    Yesterday I got up at 3:30 AM and drove 30 minutes to the Metro so I could wrestle my bike onto a subway train to get down to the stadium by 6:00. I was set to photograph a local marathon for a charity group that's near and dear to my heart. I've been involved with... More
  • Exposure and Tonal Contrast

    by Aryanimagery | 12th of February, 2008

    by Avion49 | 23rd of August, 2007

    Tony is currently writing a series of tutorials for Photoshop, so I thought I'd start encouraging folks here to try 3D. "Why go 3D?" you ask. Because in 3D work, you can once again begin to play with light and shadows. You can create without the need for drawing skills... More
