Last week we sent out our latest Exposed! photo newsletter.
In it, we explore creative passions and where they can lead. We also look at reality and those who preach based on their rocketing rise to success!
Follow your own path!
This month’s Exposed! photo newsletter launches today.
“His photos were beautiful but he was stuck. Our workshop student was frustrated that he had hit a plateau and couldn’t get beyond it…
The workshop student’s photos made beginners jealous – they were classic compositions – beautifully framed and well exposed. He had come on the workshop to get out of a rut.
In this edition of Exposed! we look at ways to:
• boost your creativity
• fuel new adventures in your artwork
• get out of your rut….”
“Where do your creative ideas come from?”
Good question! Creativity is an intangible seed that grows under varied and unusual ways. What works for a creative scientist may not work for an artist but there are common, underlying elements that help unleash creativity.
This month we explore one of the ideas – unstructured daydreaming and aimless wandering.
Some photo students secretly roll their eyes when I suggest they bring out their tripods. I can feel their loathing as they pull out the cumbersome, heavy, boring tripods.
In this month’s photo newsletter we offer FIVE reasons to leave the tripod at home. We also offer just one reason to bring it. And then we leave the decision whether to haul the tripod out up to you!
Recently, I was approached by a biplane pilot I had photographed years ago for a stock assignment. He wanted reprints and I offered a digital file and permission to reproduce…
He wanted to print the photo at home.
That makes me nervous!
Printing is tougher than people realize and I often hear “the printer is broken” or “the file is bad.” Usually, the problem is somewhere else… and this month we help you navigate the printing process to help you decide what to do.
Selfies (self portraits) have become hot since Facebook met iPhones.
Hipsters and the more average among us are turning cameras on themselves… with varying degrees of success.
In this month’s version of Exposed! we offer tips for better Selfies.
Win a photo membership!
And this month we’re offering a free three-month Online Membership to one lucky reader who submits a selfie to us by Sunday, October 27th, 2014.
This spring my web developer, Tanya, told me I needed an iPhone.
Guess who won…
Photos are easy to make – aim and click. Almost everybody has a camera device and there are trillions of, erm, bad photos out there.
Good photos take time and patience and learning…
How would you:
• make white snow white? (most people produce gray snow)
• make a waterfall turn into a milky smooth masterpiece?
• showing a hint of motion in the water and oars while keeping the boat and background crisp?
Regular photo tips can help!
In this edition of Exposed! we offer some of the most important (and fun) tips.
Messy backgrounds bug me!!
There, I’ve said it – blunt and to the point.
I see some amazing photos through our students but there’s nothing like an eye-catching background to make a good photo plummet from excellence.
In this month’s Exposed! photo newsletter we look at the beauty of a blurred background to save your photo from crashing!
