129 — How to Photograph Strangers

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #129 talks about how to pho­to­graph strangers in pub­lic so that your images are stronger and more inter­est­ing. I offer up 4 easy tips on how to make this process eas­ier so that your shots have more punch at the end. These pho­tographs were mostly taken over a period of 1 week. In the pod­cast I dis­cuss the dif­fer­ences between when the sub­ject is aware and unaware of the photographer’s presence.

128 — Your First Lens Should be a Nifty 50mm

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #128 talks about five rea­sons why I think the 50mm lens is the first lens you should get for your SLR or DSLR. Two of these rea­sons are all the aper­ture advan­tages this lens has to offer has and the fact that it’s one of the most afford­able brand new lenses you are likely to find (that aren’t garbage).

If you have a full frame cam­era the 50mm will act as the con­ven­tional 50mm lens from the film cam­era days. On a crop sen­sor cam­era the lens will act more like a 75mm or 80mm lens and many peo­ple are using this lens to make won­der­ful portraits.

127 — Point and Shoot Cameras Suck for Learning Photography

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #127 goes into why point and shoot cam­eras suck for learn­ing pho­tog­ra­phy. I actu­ally rag on point and shoot cam­eras quite a bit in this pod­cast but it’s because pho­tog­ra­phy should be fun and learn­ing pho­tog­ra­phy on a point and shoot cam­era is rarely fun and almost never user-friendly. At the begin­ning stages of learn­ing pho­tog­ra­phy you need your cam­era to be user-friendly and it’s nice when your cam­era can han­dle any shoot­ing sit­u­a­tion. Point and shoots are infe­rior to any new DSLRs when it comes to pho­tograph­ing things that move. Given that pre­cious mem­o­ries (that involve move­ment) like your child walking/running are missed with a point and shoot, it’s an infe­rior tool.

That lovely intro aside, I do rec­om­mend a few user friendly Point and shoots for pho­tog­ra­phers that are com­fort­able with a Point and shoot’s lim­i­ta­tions. They def­i­nitely are portable and can be handy in capa­ble hands.

126 — 6 Tips to Improve the Edges of Your Photos

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #126 dis­cusses the impor­tance of the four edges of your pho­tographs. They are seri­ously impor­tant and pay­ing atten­tion to them will improve your pho­tog­ra­phy. The pod­cast offers up 6 (actu­ally a few more than 6) prac­ti­cal tips on how to improve the edges of your photographs.

Thanks to The Cam­era Store (The largest cam­era store in Cal­gary, Alberta, Canada)  for spon­sor­ing the Photography.ca podcast.

A sneak peek to one of the 6 tips which is use­ful to pho­tog­ra­phers of all lev­els is to check out the work of mas­ter painters. They knew about the edges, about the over­all com­po­si­tion, and the rules of com­po­si­tion. Those rules directly apply to pho­tog­ra­phy. This famous paint­ing below done by Rem­brandt shows dark edges all around which is of course no acci­dent. He did it all the time. Notice where your eye ends up in the paint­ing; on the wave at left and this too is no acci­dent. When we can apply some of these prin­ci­ples to pho­tog­ra­phy, our images almost always improve.

 

1633 - Rembrandt (1606-1669) Christ in the Storm on the Lake of Galilee.

1633 — Rem­brandt (1606–1669) Christ in the Storm on the Lake of Galilee.

 

Talk about how edges can add inter­est! This image by Selena Rhodes Scofield from our forum is framed in an extremely cre­ative way and the unusual per­spec­tive just adds to the visual inter­est. In addi­tion, both the seagull’s neck and its wing are cre­at­ing inter­est­ing pos­i­tive and neg­a­tive shapes as they inter­sect with the edges and the rest of the image. Being on the look­out for these shapes is another way to spi­cify your photography.

Of course when you want to break guide­lines, you break them when­ever you want to. Just be aware that you are doing so. In this image below, Cana­dian Mas­ter pho­tog­ra­pher and teacher Free­man Pat­ter­son does just that.

From his book Pho­tog­ra­phy and the Art of See­ing he wrote: “I saw this elderly lady as pass­ing away from me and my world, so I pho­tographed her through a win­dow clouded by reflec­tions and cur­tains. The shal­low depth of field, which throws the reflec­tions and cur­tains out of focus, cre­ates a sense of the sur­real and the unknown. The hand of the woman’s friend appears in the lower right cor­ner. By all tra­di­tional stan­dards of com­po­si­tion, the hand should not be there because it looks ampu­tated. Yet it seems strangely appro­pri­ate, rep­re­sent­ing sup­port that may be needed in the present, while at the same time adding to the impres­sion of the world dissolving”

125 — How Much Post Processing is Too Much — Interview w/ Darwin Wiggett and Sam Chrysanthou

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #125 fea­tures an inter­view with pho­tog­ra­phers Dar­win Wiggett and Sam Chrysan­thou (apolo­gies to Sam for muck­ing up her name) of oopoomoo.com where we talk about post pro­cess­ing in pho­tog­ra­phy and how much post-processing is too much.

Thanks to The Cam­era Store (The largest cam­era store in Cal­gary, Alberta, Canada)  for spon­sor­ing the Photography.ca podcast.

In this pod­cast we get into talk­ing about the dif­fer­ences between pho­tog­ra­phers and dig­i­tal artists in this chang­ing age where any­thing seems to go photography-wise. This dis­cus­sion pod­cast is inspired by a blog post by Dar­win where he asked How Far is too Far?  The post refers to Darwin’s pho­to­graph of an owl and a swal­low shot at the same time, but shot as two sep­a­rate files that were blended together in Pho­to­shop after capture.

What do you think, did Dar­win go too far?

It goes with­out say­ing that both Dar­win and Sam DO post-process their images but they spend min­i­mal time doing so. They just released an e-book out­lin­ing the short­cuts they use to process their images and they rely mostly on Adobe Bridge and Pho­to­shop to do their edit­ing. The book is called 7 Quick & Dirty Pro­cess­ing Short­cuts for Lazy Pho­tog­ra­phers.

123 — Entry Level Camera Trigger Showdown — PocketWizard versus Cactus

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #123 com­pares 2 entry level trig­ger­ing devices for your cam­era. A ‘trig­ger’ is sim­ply a device that allows your cam­era to fire nearly any portable flash, mono­light or stu­dio flash while it is OFF-camera. The abil­ity to fire a flash or other light source while OFF-camera allows you to mod­ify the direc­tion and the qual­ity of the light(s) to pro­duce much more cre­ative and pro­fes­sional look­ing pho­tog­ra­phy ver­sus direct on-camera flash. The 2 units tested are the Pock­etWiz­ard Plus X and the Cac­tus V5 Duo.

The PocketWizard Plus X transceiver (sold as a single unit) and the Cactus V5 Duo (2 transceivers)

The Pock­etWiz­ard Plus X trans­ceiver (sold as a sin­gle unit for $99.00) and the Cac­tus V5 Duo (2 trans­ceivers for $99.00 or sold indi­vid­i­ually at $59.00)

 

Thanks to The Cam­era Store (The largest cam­era store in Cal­gary, Alberta, Canada)  for spon­sor­ing the Photography.ca pod­cast and for loan­ing me the test equip­ment for this week’s podcast!

Both these units do the identical job with identical (100%) reliability in both my indoor and outdoor tests.

Both these units do the iden­ti­cal job with iden­ti­cal (100%) reli­a­bil­ity in both my indoor and out­door tests. The top photo shows how the Cac­tus trans­ceiver attaches to both the cam­era and to an off-camera flash. The bot­tom photo shows how the Pock­etWiz­ard Plus X trans­ceiver attaches to both the cam­era and to an off-camera flash. The main dif­fer­ence is that the Pock­etWiz­ard is miss­ing the extra hot shoe so it attaches to the off cam­era flash with (an included) sync-wire.

 

The build qual­ity of the Pock­etWiz­ard is slightly more robust than the Cac­tus V5 and its leg­endary reli­a­bil­ity (Pock­etWiz­ards have been around for decades) and the fact that they work with every other Pock­etWiz­ard ever made are its main advantages.

Where the Cactus V5 duo really shines is with the addition of the extra hot shoe on the unit. Both these units will do the identical job, but the cactus's design is more elegant and user friendly.

Where the Cac­tus V5 duo really shines is with the addi­tion of the extra hot shoe on the unit. Here the flash will act as an on axis-fill flash to fill in shad­ows cre­ated by another light, and it fits snugly into the hot shoe on top of the Cac­tus V5. At left is the Pock­etWiz­ard attempt­ing the same task but because it has no extra hot shoe it must be attached to the camera’s flash via an included sync-wire

 

Both these units will do the iden­ti­cal job, but the Cactus’s design (at right) is more ele­gant, eas­ier to attach and the Cac­tus V5 Duo is half the price of the Pock­etWiz­ard Plus X. Unfor­tu­nately the Cac­tus V5 will NOT work with Pock­etWiz­ards or even dif­fer­ent Cac­tus models.

121 — Make Better Self Portraits

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #121 offers up 6 tips on how to make bet­ter self por­traits in pho­tog­ra­phy. Mak­ing a self por­trait, some­times known as an auto­por­trait has a long his­tory in pho­tog­ra­phy and many past and mod­ern pho­tog­ra­phy Mas­ters (Man Ray, Robert Map­plethorpe and the extremely pro­lific self por­traitist Cindy Sher­man for exam­ple) have pro­duced fab­u­lous self por­traits. Please know in advance that we are not refer­ring to ‘selfies’…which I rant on about for a lit­tle bit in this pod­cast. We are refer­ring to self-portraits which require delib­er­ate fram­ing and think­ing about the light, envi­ron­ment etc.

I’ve been buy­ing my own gear there and rec­om­mend­ing them for a few years now, and I’m a fussy bug­ger when it comes to both gear and rec­om­men­da­tions. Their cus­tomer ser­vice is sim­ply awe­some and I often find that they have the best prices in Canada. They ship all over Canada.

 

Both these images were taken within the same minute. The bottom image however, tells a stronger story due to the dramatic gesture of the axe in the air.

Both these images were taken within the same minute. The bot­tom image how­ever, tells a stronger story due to the dra­matic ges­ture of the axe in the air, the smoke com­ing from the side of the roof and the fire­man on the right of the roof that’s fac­ing the cam­era. The top image isn’t bad, but it eas­ily loses in a poker match when it goes head to head with the bot­tom image.

 

Meeting - I waited in my window and actively composed this scene last winter. There is a strong suggestion of story here because the person in the background appears to be waiting for the foreground woman. I clicked the shutter only when I felt the timing was right compositionally.

Winter’s Meet­ing — I waited in a win­dow and actively com­posed this scene last win­ter.

I clicked the shut­ter only when I felt the tim­ing was right compositionally.

118 — Manipulating Photojournalism — Interview with Carl Neustaedter

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #118 is the first of two episodes ded­i­cated to manip­u­la­tion in pho­to­jour­nal­ism. This first episode fea­tures an inter­view with Carl Neustaedter who is the deputy edi­tor of the Ottawa Cit­i­zen, the largest daily news­pa­per in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Carl is one of the peo­ple who decides on a daily basis what images make it into the newspaper.

In this inter­view we dis­cuss how much manip­u­la­tion is too much manip­u­la­tion when it comes to news photography.

In par­tic­u­lar, we talk about this year’s win­ning world press photo by Paul Hansen. We also talk about using Insta­gram and Hip­st­matic style fil­ters in news pho­tog­ra­phy. We dis­cuss some famously ‘over’ manip­u­lated news images like the O.J. Simp­son Cover on Time Mag­a­zine back in 1994.  We also dis­cuss more sub­tle mod­ern ways in which dig­i­tal news images are manip­u­lated. Finally, we dis­cuss the fir­ing of the pho­to­jour­nal­ism staff at the Chicago Sun-Times.

In 1994 Time and Newsweek used the same image of O.J. Simpson as the cover image. It's clear that Time magazine intentionally manipulated the image.

117 — Noise Halos and Chromatic Aberration — Interview with Royce Howland

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #117 fea­tures an inter­view with fine art pho­tog­ra­pher Royce How­land where we dis­cuss the ‘junk’ that can get into our pho­tographs. In par­tic­u­lar we dis­cuss and dis­sect noise, halos and chro­matic aber­ra­tion in pho­tog­ra­phy. We talk about how to avoid get­ting these prob­lems, how to fix these prob­lems and how for some pho­tog­ra­phers — these aren’t prob­lems at all but rather, delib­er­ate cre­ative choices.

Royce does an AWESOME job of explain­ing these prob­lems so that they are under­stand­able to anyone. 

This is the longest pod­cast I’ve pub­lished to date and it clocks in at around 70 min­utes. We spend roughly 20 min­utes on each of the 3 top­ics. We cover halos first, then noise, then chro­matic aber­ra­tion. Each of the 3  issues have very dif­fer­ent causes and solutions.

Scroll to the BOTTOM of this post to find the player to imme­di­ately lis­ten to the audio podcast.

On the Rocks, Moraine Lake by Royce Howland

On the Rocks, Moraine Lake by Royce How­land — An HDR exam­ple where Royce con­trolled the set­tings to make sure no halos appeared in the sky or water.

Fall at Abraham Lake by Royce Howland

Fall at Abra­ham Lake by Royce How­land — Another HDR exam­ple where Royce left the halo­ing in the sky, and in fact accen­tu­ated it a bit more via a Pho­to­shop Curves adjust­ment, to give a sense of glow over the moun­tains. So some­times halos are not a flaw, they’re a cre­ative choice.

Looming, Abraham Lake by Royce Howland

Loom­ing, Abra­ham Lake by Royce How­land — An HDR exam­ple involv­ing a high con­trast back­lit scene. The trees were deeply shad­owed. Even on a Pen­tax 645D medium for­mat cam­era, there’s noise in those trees in a nor­mal sin­gle expo­sure. Bot­tom left — A 100% crop of a sin­gle expo­sure that went into the image above show­ing the level of noise in the trees. Bot­tom right — A 100% crop of the final image. Using a com­bi­na­tion of HDR tech­nique and a touch of addi­tional noise reduc­tion, I was able to sub­tly boost the con­trast in the deep shad­ows, pre­serve all of the gen­uine detail, and also vir­tu­ally elim­i­nate the dig­i­tal noise. With­out HDR tech­nique, just using a noise reduc­tion fil­ter can take the dig­i­tal noise down but gen­er­ally also will sac­ri­fice legit­i­mate detail as well.

Ghost Of Server Present, Jerome by Royce Howland

Ghost Of Server Present, Jerome by Royce How­land — An indoor shot taken with avail­able light in some­what dim con­di­tions at a sup­pos­edly haunted hotel. I’m using a bunch of cre­ative tech­niques here includ­ing shal­low depth of field, a reflec­tion in a mir­ror, sub­ject motion blur and extra dig­i­tal blur­ring. Despite the soft­en­ing effects of all the tech­niques used in this image, I also wanted a bit of tex­ture and bit of “vin­tage film grain” feel. So far from remov­ing all dig­i­tal noise, I actu­ally con­trolled it and then added a uni­form mono­chro­matic grain layer on top of every­thing in Pho­to­shop. In print up to 16x20 size it’s dif­fi­cult to see this grain, but on a nice matte paper it gives a slight feel­ing of tex­ture; whereas run­ning noise reduc­tion as I would nor­mally do in fact makes the results look­ing flat and plas­tic. You can see the noise detail added in the bot­tom detailed part of the image.

Chromatic aberration example at f/3.5 by Royce Howland

Chro­matic aber­ra­tion exam­ple at f/3.5 by Royce How­land — It was a bit after noon so the sun was high, and I shot straight into the light. The tree branches against a darker back­ground show extremely high con­trast edges. I was using a Sony RX100 pocket cam­era, which is a very high qual­ity point & shoot with a Carl Zeiss lens. So a qual­ity piece of kit for a com­pact. The first com­po­si­tion was at medium lens zoom and the aper­ture wide open — f/3.5. Bot­tom left — A 100% crop of the shot shows a lot of green and pur­ple fringes are vis­i­ble along the branch edges. Even towards the cen­ter of the lens, the chro­matic aber­ra­tion is pretty bad. This is a file con­verted from RAW using the lat­est Adobe Cam­era Raw in Pho­to­shop CS6, no chro­matic aber­ra­tion removal. Bot­tom right — Now here’s the iden­ti­cal file, but using the green and pur­ple fringe removal set­tings dur­ing RAW con­ver­sion. Quite strong set­tings were needed for the green fringes, not so strong for pur­ple. Mostly the fringes were removed.

Chromatic aberration example at f/5.6 by Royce Howland

Chro­matic aber­ra­tion exam­ple at f/5.6 by Royce How­land — Now here is the same com­po­si­tion pho­tographed again moments later in the same strong light, but stop­ping the lens down to f/5.6. Bot­tom left — Stop­ping the lens down just over 1 stop has actu­ally got­ten rid of many of the pur­ple & green fringes with­out doing any­thing else. That’s because a slightly smaller aper­ture lets through less of the mis­aligned light rays that con­tribute to the chro­matic aber­ra­tion in the first place. This is a RAW file con­verted again with no chro­matic aber­ra­tion set­tings. Bot­tom right — And here’s the same file con­verted with a small amount of pur­ple and green defringe set­tings, much less than needed in the first exam­ple and the results look better.

116 — Sharpness on Steroids — Focus stacking interview with Michael Breitung

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #116 fea­tures an inter­view with Ger­man land­scape pho­tog­ra­pher Michael Bre­itung where we talk about why and how to do focus stack­ing in pho­tog­ra­phy. Basi­cally focus stack­ing involves tak­ing mul­ti­ple frames of the same scene but each frame is focused at a dif­fer­ent part of the image. Then these frames are blended together using a graph­ics pro­gram like Gimp (free) or Pho­to­shop (expen­sive). The result is sharp­ness and depth of field on steroids that can’t be matched by any cam­era lens com­bi­na­tion on a 35mm DSLR cam­era at the time of this writ­ing.  Only tilt shift lenses can com­pete in this extreme sharp­ness arena, but those lenses require many saved dol­lars or a rich uncle. This tech­nique is free if you have the skills and a graph­ics program.

Bloody Causeway - a focus stacked image by Michael Breitung

Bloody Cause­way by Michael Bre­itung — This focus stacked image blends 4 frames into one. Each frame was focused at a dif­fer­ent point and then blended in Pho­to­shop. Check out the sharp­ness from the clos­est cor­ners all the way to the end of the cause­way. This is sharp­ness swim­ming in awe­some sauce. The aper­ture used here was f/9.5

Kraichgau at Dawn - Close up comparison by Michael Breitung

Kraich­gau at Dawn Details — Close up com­par­i­son by Michael Bre­itung — Only 2 frames were needed to cre­ate the final full-sized image above this one. One frame (left) focused at the fore­ground cor­ners, gets the cor­ners sharp in the final image. The other frame (right) focused at the midground, gets both the midground and the back­ground sharp. Then the frames are blended in Pho­to­shop to pro­duce the final image. The aper­ture used here was f/11.
