A professional portrait is better than a selfie if you are trying to make an impression. Business profiles deserve the professional touch. A selfie sends the wrong message to potential clients.
There is a rule in my studio. It is called the Rule of Mutual Respect. This is what it means…
If I ask someone to pose a certain way for a photo, and they say they don’t want to, I won’t ask again. On the other hand, if they ask me to photograph them a certain way, and I don’t want to, they don’t ask again.
I received my new f2.0 lens from B&H today. Impressively small for a “normal” lens. I expected it to be as big as the zoom lens I broke last week. It’s difficult to tell from photos, but this is a great size for a prime 50mm equivalent lens.
Someone said color is only a distraction when it comes to good photography. I put my camera in black and white mode and went out taking pictures. It’s true. You pay more attention to composition and lighting when shooting in B&W. Color is a distraction.
The topic of misused terms in photography came to me when someone asked about “the industry standard”. Industry standard implies a written, documented, industry accepted design, set of protocols and mode of operation. An example of an industry standard in photograph is ISO.
