    Take control One of the things I encounter a lot during talks with attendees to my workshops or seminars is that a lot of photographers struggle with their light. Now I don’t want to generalize, but I think for a lot of shooters out there this is a reoccurring problem. One could almost say, “Most photographers are controlled by their lighting, while a photographer should be in control of their lighting.” In photography light is our language, so it’s of vital importance to learn to speak that language. I hear you thinking, “But I don’t have expensive gear to fight the sun, or to manipulate light.” And I agree, some images that you see online will be hard to get without a powerful strobe, but don’t worry. That’s not what this blog is about. Take Photoshop As An Example. When you start Photoshop it all looks incredibly…

    (Note from Brad: Last week was Matt's first time attending Photoshop World, and I thought it would be interesting to get his fresh-eyed take on it. Take it away, Matt!) Only days after attending this year's Photoshop World, I sit in 124 degree heat in Death Valley, CA to write this blog post - and my head is still spinning from the experience. My wife has had the good fortune of listening to me tell her the same (exciting) stories over and over. A longtime friend of Brad (pre-beard) from Connecticut, I made my first trip out to Las Vegas to attend the conference and also embark on a photo excursion of a few of the National Parks. Although drawn to landscape photography, I am most often found capturing people expressing themselves culturally and/or creatively. As someone struggling to transition into full time photography as a career, the…

    Hi, I’m a guy from Arkansas. People pay me to take pictures sometimes, and sometimes they don’t. Today is a day where no one is paying me to take pictures, so I’m writing this blog post because Brad Moore asked me to, and he seems like a nice guy (on the internet). I’ve been shooting pictures for the last seven years as my only source of income, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I shoot “full time” - some months are slow, and some months I can barely keep up, and most months are somewhere in the middle. Photography feeds my family, pays my mortgage, and sometimes I get to buy beer, which is quite honestly everything I could have ever hoped for in life. I shoot for the New York Times, Reuters, Getty, AP, various magazines, blah blah blah, who cares… I have a…

    Not Every Shoot Is A Winner Here’s the scenario: You go do a shoot, download the images, go through the take, pick the keepers, do your editing, and deliver the shots. The client loves them… But you don’t. They're okay, but they don’t quite send you to your happy place. Sound familiar? If it does, I have some good news for you. You’re not alone. Is there anything wrong with this shot? Not technically, but it's not winning any awards. I would guess that most photographers go through this, even the best ones. No matter how much we try to make the best possible images we can, not every shoot is going to result in a new portfolio image. You can plan all you want, put together your shot list, research the location, research your subject, make inspiration/mood boards, clean your lenses and sensor,…

      Why Keep Doing This? At the age of 69, and after 45 years as a working pro, I’ve earned the right to a break, but I don’t want one!!!  For three reasons... My Three Reasons: Challenge: When we’re finished learning, we’re finished. Life has little value if we are not striving to get better at something, when you stop trying, you’re finished! Life is too precious to throw in the towel, so we should give everything we love everything we have! Our families, our faith, our work, and yes our hobbies. Photography is challenging, no matter how long you do it, no matter how good you get, there is still always room to improve. If you don’t believe that, you don‘t know where you really are. I have a fantastic illustration for you... What if you were a golfer and they came out with…

    Photo by Mike Silberreis Loving Light Hello everyone. My name is Tilo Gockel. I’d like to start by saying that I am incredibly honored to have the opportunity to share my thoughts with you on Scott Kelby’s blog. I’ve been a professional photographer for seven years now. Previous to that I was an engineer, where I was in close contact with image sensors, video transmission, pattern projectors, and optics. Nevertheless, it took me quite some time to understand the technical challenges and the creative impact of photography. After years of practice I’ve now come to think of photography like learning a new instrument: I had to (and still have to) practice the scales, so to speak. Let’s rewind to when I started out. It did not take long for me to become totally addicted to light and lighting. From there, the obsession grew to…
