When you get started with Speedlites, there are so many decisions — on camera or off, optical or radio, one flash or many, fill flash or key. Fortunately for us, we have the man who has been going deep with Canon products for almost 25 years.
Brian Worley is a former product manager for Canon Europe and still works with them on a contract basis. If you have ever read the UK photography magazines, PhotoPlus, or EOS User, you’ve probably read his words. Well, today, we get to pick his brain on Speedlites.
I walked by Frank and Scott three times before I stopped and asked to take their photo. The two tattoo artists were joking around outside a tattoo shop, and I was out shooting street portraits for my 100 Strangers project.
Over the years, I’ve done photographed plenty of street portraits and even started teaching others how to do it. Most people I teach overcome the same initial fears and find that it’s a rewarding experience for them too.
Now, it’s your turn. In this episode, I will show you how you can make street portraits confidently.
Street photography is one of the more accessible yet challenging forms of photography. As long as you have a camera, any camera, it’s available to you.
We’ve been seeing it in some form or another for several decades now. But if you want to be good, you have to work at it. You have to decide which approach you want to take and how you will go about creating. Should you engage or not engage people. And how you will deal with them?
Josh Katz has not only thought about all these issues, he has also been sharing and teaching about them on his popular YouTube channel.
For a photographer and sports fan growing up in a football town, there’s one question you always dream of hearing, “would you like to shoot from the sidelines of an NFL game?”
And for Scott Kelby, the dream came true. He shot for three years as a backup wire service photographer and another six years as the primary wire service photographer covering his hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Scott Kelby shared a rare moment of honesty you don’t normally hear from professional photographers.
“Do you know how you can take better pictures? Go somewhere interesting!” he joked during a presentation at PhotoPlus Expo. “Do you see this photo?” he said of a spectacular sunset image. “I just showed up and pressed the button.”
Of course Scott is simplifying his role quite a bit. He’s right that travel photography is a great way to create photographs, but it requires more than showing up and pushing a button. Follow these 5 Ps for great travel photographs and travel photography experiences.
