  • Let’s face it — some days we don’t really feel like going out to take photos. Weather, kids, work, chores, projects…the list goes on. The list of excuses, because really that’s what they are.

    Category: Food Photographer: Ben Aerssen Photo: “3/52 – Artistic: Red (Grapefruit Macro)” Ben’s photo is a great example of how contrast can really help an image. Here, the red and yellow grapefruit pop on the blue background, immediately drawing your eye to the center of it. It almost has a sort of leading lines effect, where…

    Like many of you, I started photography learning to shoot and process black and white in high school. It was amazing to see a photograph materialize in the chemicals, and it was incredible how much detail I could see in the scenes. Back then I only shot 35mm Tri-X film, but the tones and contrasts…

    “What have I done wrong? Nothing, I think. I am steadily surprised that there are so many photographers that reject manipulating reality as if that was wrong. Change reality! If you don’t find it, invent it!” – Pete Turner Pete Turner was, arguably, the pioneer of color photography, especially in the fields of commercial and fine art.…

    Normally, I’d read the entire book before writing a review, but this can’t wait. I’ve skipped around and read several sections and the writing is good and engaging — almost as engaging as the photographs.

    Category: Architecture Photographer: Nianci Pan Photo: “Art Institute of Chicago DSC06621-Edit-Edit-Edit” Architectural imaging is so much about shape and form, and how these both affect us as humans!
