how many times have you walked on to a scene dark and overcast and wished you could make your subject jump off the background.
For this video, my goal was to challenge myself to shooting the same location, model, camera, lens, etc and creating two completely different looks just by altering my lighting and style.
There’s just something about a 35mm prime lens that gives your images such a unique look and feel. This is a great focal length for so many types of photographers, from wedding pros to photojournalists, from beauty portraits to street photography.

If you’ve been in the photography business for a while, you already know that mood is a huge component of any picture you take.

Wedding season is rolling in as hot as the weather, and we are all stretching out the clock with time spent at the computer.
When we talk about wedding photography, we’re always looking for our happily ever after!
For sixteen and a half years I was a TACP, which falls under the Air Force Special Warfare Community.
At the start of our photography careers, making money and doing what we love is usually the primary focus.
Like many photographers, I’m always trying to find new ways to take my images to the next level.

Sal Cincotta created Behind the Shutter to give back to the world of photography. As an up and coming photographer, Sal was struggling to find answers to basic questions. Most of the magazines out there were filled with fluff. Sal needed and wanted to create something that would challenge photographers, something that would educate them.
Sal, an active wedding and portrait photographer in the St Louis metro area, wanted to bring a sense of real world understanding to the magazine and photography education.
Our mission is to create and elevate the photography community by providing relevant and timely education. At Behind the Shutter, we believe that an educated photography community will raise the bar for all photographers around the world.
