Here’s why a beginning portrait photographer needs a mannequin. A mannequin is a steady, reliable subject. Just like a beginning painter needs an apple, a vase and other simple objects to sketch and paint, a new portrait photographer needs a mannequin to practice.
Corel Painter 2017 continues to impress me. It’s my goal to complete one painting a month in 2017, and Corel Painter is going to help me achieve this goal. It allows me to pick up where I left off without having to worry about cleaning my brushes and work area.
Having lunch with a friend today, he pulls out his new Canon 5D Mk IV. Impressive! But, my Fujifilm X-T1 holds its own, otherwise I’d be ordering a Mark IV.
It’s hard to fight the G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome – the urge to go out and buy the latest gear.) So, I turned to dpreview to see what they have to say.
I’ve said it before, you want a portrait to be timeless. Many photographers these days don’t know what that means, so you want to hire one who does. A timeless photograph doesn’t date itself.
As an artist, I’m always looking for things that inspire me to create. For the most part, it is other artists. One such artist is Anna Razumovskaya.
Anna’s style is much like Pino’s style (whose work I love also), but it seems to be more intimate and pretty. I discovered her work a few years ago, and I’ve been a fan ever since.
