    how i got the shot



    Every month we will explore the cover shot in-depth to dissect how we got the shot.

    It gives me an opportunity to showcase the behind-the-scenes like never before. There are so many images we look at that make us wonder about the “how.” How did they make that shot? Sometimes it’s the smallest of details that can spark our imagination. I hope that by sharing the details of the shoot, we can spark some new ideas and creativity for you as an artist.

    6 tips for better landscapes



    1. Use quality equipment. Use a quality tripod. Nothing can ruin the perfect shot like a weak tripod or, even worse, no tripod at all. This is one of the most important pieces of equipment in your gear bag. Just as important as a steady set of legs is the head you put on it. Especially when you start shooting with a longer, heavier lens.

    Nobody wants to be in the middle of a long exposure only to have the ball head fail. I use Really Right Stuff carbon-fiber tripods. They’re incredibly sturdy, unbelievably light and easy to use. Cared for properly, they will last you a lifetime.

    off-camera flash 101



    Many of the ShutterFest faithful have been telling me loud and clear that they need help with the basics of off-camera lighting. I’ve spent years cultivating studio and location skills ranging from simple one-light setups to complex multiple-light, large-crew productions, so I often assume everyone understands the basics. Clearly this isn’t the case. This month, let’s dig into the foundations and some basic techniques.

    At its core, lighting is really simple. We’ve all heard people describe themselves as available-light shooters. There’s nothing wrong with that. I’m the first to admit that you can’t beat Mother Nature.
