Why I have decided to improve my photography in camera

I had always been reluctant to improve my photography in camera because I used to think that you could always make a bad picture into a great one in Photoshop. I mistook retouching for manipulation.
I always improvised my shots and never paid attention to light quality and composition. When I started editing a picture, I could see that my...

Evening colours

i took this picture in a church with some great stained glass, enough to throw some great colour on my model. I would have preferred another lens but I was shooting with my 16-35mm that day. I love this shot and I had a tough job just keeping the edit the way I wanted it to be. CC is more than welcome.

How much time does a picture capture?

Is there a way to know how much time of our lives is captured in a single picture? It seems to be that time is infinitely divisible, therefore the time that is captured in a frame will always be dependant on how fast the camera is. Modern cameras are much faster than previous generation photography equipment. However, is there a physical limit...

weekend fun

My niece is an aspiring makeup artist, and was having some fun the other day using her imagination. We went out to the garden with some lights to try and capture what she had done. The headshot in particular is a "heavier" retouch than i am normally comfortable with, but maybe it works because of the makeup - not really sure and would love your...

We had a winter coat with a collar that we just popped up (like Ryan Gosling in the movie), and we combed Megan's hair...

Last month I did my first 4 portrait sessions with 2 pics from each posted here. I want these photos torn apart, I don't learn from people saying, "nice pic".

The post processing has...

Color Grading Is Killing Me

If I can improve one thing about my photography and editing skill, it will to creatively color grade my photos to create my own artistic style. But soon I will learn that too. My first attempt at color grading without just throwing on a filter using Alien Skin or other plugins.
