New to site.

Hey all Scott here from Australia, just joined up tonight and been watching a few critique videos on youtube and have found them very informative.

I would love some critique on a recent image that I have taken, sorry about the watermark I am working from my laptop and it has the watermarked copies on it.

Yesterday I shot my last wedding

I've been a professional wedding photographer for around 11 years now. Wedding photography has allowed me to live an amazing life and has given me the free time to do other things (like create Fstoppers). Over the past few years I've been shooting less and less weddings.

Wedding photography doesn't excite me the same way that it used to...

Here is a matte painting I did called Clould City, I used different photography elements like buildings, architecture, clouds, mountains... to come up with this composition, photoshop was the main program used to create this image. C & C always appreciated.

Husband Seeking Advice For Wife

Hello Fstoppers!! Before I begin, I know I am breaking the cardinal rule of not overstepping my boundaries when it comes to my wife, but I am. My wife has been doing photography professionally now for about 3 years. Some of her work I think is really good, while some of it I think could us some work. I also am her second shooter when needed (I...

Côte des Basques - Biarritz

Hi there,

This is my first post here and I see so many good things in the community! Im' Julien, a french photographer from Annecy (Alps). Here is a shot I made last week after a wedding shoot. A beautiful way to finish a long and hard journey.

I attached my favorite shot of the Golden Gate Bridge with intense fog. Also, published in...

Pentax-A 35mm f/2: Is this lens really that rare?

My hand-me-down Pentax SuperProgram came with a Pentax-A 35mm f/2 lens attached. I'm in the process of getting rid of some gear and decided to look it up. According to the internets, it's a somewhat rare and sought after lens, so I figured I'd ask some folks who would probably know. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated. Here's a link...

Practice needed

Hello,

It's been a while since I've been on Fstoppers and I'd like to make use of this platform to get a little collaboration projects.

I want to practice my retouching skills since I haven't been doing much commercial photography and also I'm done retouching my old photos.

So if anyone has any nice pictures, preferably...

Tips on gaining and finding access to awesome locations?

I know there are services or even freelance scouters, sadly I do not have the cash to throw around for that, especially for personal projects.

I've read some articles on fstoppers such as from Kendra where a friend simply knocks a door of a mansion and they somehow get the access. Not sure if I can get 100% success rate while I go to...

SINGLE SPEEDLITE

I love using just 1 speedlite, I do have more than 1 but the impact and drama you can achieve with just one is great.
As the great John Loengard would say - "If you want something to look interesting, don't light all".
With hundreds of different types of modifiers and light sources the effects you can achieve with just one flash...
