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 distinguishing feature between a good photographer and a mediocre photographer is the placement of the hands. The hands of the subject tell the whole story. If the hands aren’t right, it’s a bad portrait. Plain and simple.
Time to review a product again. This time it is the AD200. I haven’t worked with it a whole lot, but so far I am VERY impressed.
The first time I saw this was when fellow photographer and educator Michael Mowbray posted about it on Facebook. I immediately took a look at the specifications and said, “I want one!”
You’ve heard me talk about the IceLight and my under $30 substitute. Because they are LED, they require higher ISO settings or slower shutter speeds. For this reason I set out to find a portable speedlight solution.
I love my OTG Kit (On the Go Kit). I can grab what I need in one, or at most two trips to the car. (The number of trips depends on extra equipment I might need to bring.)
