Yesterday was an amazing and eye opening day. It really challenged my photographic knowledge, skills and pre-conceptions. The biggest thing for me was linking everything I’d learnt before together and more importantly, when to ignore that knowledge and to have the confidence and conviction to try something out, solve the puzzle and make it work. In hindsight a lot of the technique is blindingly obvious which probably makes it significantly harder to realise.
Found the coolest feature in LightRoom yesterday: virtual images.
Ever wondered what they are and how they can be used, follow the link to fine out more…
Here is a another lesson I’d like to share with my reader: write protect the card when full. Why? Click the link to find out…
I’m sure I’m not alone in having a gust o fwind blow over a light stand and snap a brolly pole. No, I thought not. I think it’s a natural part of the learning process, the lesson being taught is that of adding ballast (aka camera bag) to the stand to prevent it.
But, what of the brolly? Is it now confined to the bin? Absolutely not.
When this happened to me the other day, I thought “bother, now what am I going to do?” I needed it for a model shoot the following day, and there was no time to go out and replace it.
Yesterday I had an enquiry from a client who wants to buy one of my images. He is very keen to buy, but before doing so had a couple of questions he wanted answers for.
I recognised the image immediately and can even remember taking it at the time. However, in order to give hime the answers he wanted, I needed to find the original in my archive. No mean feat especially when you consider the number of images it contains. For instance, last year alone I shot over 9,500 images and I’m easily going to exceed that this year.
