    As a commercial architectural photographer, most of my clients want images shot in great weather conditions: Blue skies, maybe a few clouds, green grass, leaves on the trees, etc. Living in Toronto, it means I can photograph exteriors from approximately June to October (or May to November on a good year). Does it mean I…

    Category: Beauty Photographer: Thomas Salinka Photo: “Face-Anastasia” The quiet reveal of the model’s strong eyebrow and her eye in “Face-Anastasia” grabs the viewer. Is she being revealed or is the zipper being closed shutting her off from her audience? These are two ways of looking at the same photograph. Either way, there is a story.…

    I recently went out to the Muskegon Wastewater Treatment Plant, located in Muskegon, Mich. Sounds…smelly, right? Well, there was a reason for this — snowy owls are known to be spotted there. Last year, I went out with fellow Photofocus author Cathy Seaver to check them out, and we found about several of them during…

    You really dislike having your photo taken, don’t you? Most of us prefer to be on the other side of the camera taking the images. There is something to be said though for using ourselves as models and test subjects in learning how to shoot portraits and also learning general photography. Would you do that…

    Last week, I went out and photographed after our first big snow in West Michigan. I kept my pack light, taking just my Olympus OM-D EM-1 Mark II, 12-100mm f/4 PRO lens, NiSi 10-stop neutral density filter and a Vanguard Alta tripod. We received about five inches of snow overnight, and it was that wet…

    Having a conversation with your camera in hand doesn’t mean you should talk to your camera — that’s fine to do in private settings, but not recommended in public. I mean that you should have a conversation with your subject while your camera is doing the work. As you converse with your subject you’ll discover subjects…

    Category: Outdoor Photographer: Melinda G Photo: “[Insert Hallelujah Chorus here]” A perfect moment frozen in time! I love the symmetry of the wings, the colors, and even the water droplets. The background is nicely out of focus to make the powerful beat of the mallard’s wings stand out even more. Thanks for sharing with our…

    When I first received my Epson SureColor P800 printer for review, I was dumbfounded at how to print borderless through Lightroom Classic. The quality of the printer was great, but I was getting a 0.25″ margin on the top, left and right sides of my 8.5″ x 11″ print, and a 0.56″ margin on the…

    My trusted Nikon D700 shutter died after 149,652 photos. The shutter needed to be replaced at a cost of about $200. Not bad, but it got me thinking — how many images did I take at the several FREE sporting events or photoshoots? I have no regrets but that got me thinking about adding a…
