In my last post I described my workflow and some of its control points. A good portion of this workflow involves images post-production, during which I straighten the images, correct color, crop, etc. That’s why this time I’d like to share about some options we have nowadays when it comes to image post-production.
The photography “workflow” seems to be one of those terms that we use frequently but can’t quite define with a level of confidence. And yet, I think many of us can point a finger at it and say “that is a workflow”.
This time I’d like to explain how I produced the following image. I think many of us have seen low key images and we always wondered how they were made. After studying and researching a little and practicing a lot, I finally started to produce them more or less regularly.
You have surely heard the term “assistant photographer” but, what does an assistant do? Where is the point in which s/he stops being an assistant and becomes a photographer?
I have to make a confession. For a long time I considered mobile phone photography as something inferior but, nowadays, I have to say that my mobile phone is the camera I use the most. Now I understand Chase Jarvis’ expression: the best camera is the one that’s with you.
More than one photographer dreams at some point about photographing a fashion event. However, these events are sometimes difficult to photograph or we think it’s difficult to access them.
I have been meaning to write this post, because many of us have tried or have been asked to photograph a small object, probably to sell it on eBay or just to show it to the world.
A fall, a splash or a theft. These are some of the worse situations our gear can go through. Maybe you or someone you know has already experienced one of the, so they are not just theoretical scenarios. What can we do to prevent them?
In order to obtain great images in a consistent way, we would all like to shoot with our ideal gear all the time, using manual mode, controlling the lighting and every other aspect of the image. In reality, it is not very likely that you carry your camera with you at all times.
