Quick Tip: Promote Spontaneous moments! In this shot I prompted the maids to direct their attention on the bride. The reaction of the girls sparked a playful expression from the bride.
Quick Tip: Allow children to play within their surroundings, doing so will produce a more authentic and telling photograph.
Quick Tip: A few days ago I posted about using Negative Fill in portraits. There were several questions about using negative fill, so I thought I would expand on the daily post. Fill light is achieved by using a light colored surface such as a white wall or reflector to bounce light at your subject. Negative fill is the exact opposite.
Placing the subject near a very dark object “reflects” a shadow. If you look at the boy in the driver’s seat one side of his face is more brightly lit than the other. This was created by placing him near the dark frame of the car. Using negative fill in evenly lit situations creates more dimension with the play between light and shadow. Had his face been evenly lit, it would not have drawn your eye in.
We’ve been scratching our heads here at Photography Unfiltered trying to come up with a snazzy tagline for the show. We have some ideas but haven’t hit the “YES!” spot. We are keenly aware that our intelligent audience will likely have some great ideas and therefore, we are launching “Tag Photography Unfiltered” Contest today. In brief, we are looking for a short, catchy, easy to remember line that captures the spirit of the show – inspiration, empowerment, and community. Interested in helping us create the show tagline?
Entering is quick and easy! Just comment on this blog post with your idea!
Good luck! We are looking forward to reading all the entries!
