Light for Photographers

An informative article on using light, from Picture Correct, written by Colin Aiken, a professional photographer based in the United Kingdom.

Light is the essence of photography. It’s not things that we photograph, but the light they reflect. Without light, there is no photography and the way things look to us and the camera is entirely dependent on the light that reaches them.

People talk about the “quality” of light, but in fact this is a combination of four different things that all light sources possess. Every light has a level, a colour, a direction and can either be hard or soft. Unless you are working in a studio, where you have total control over the lighting, the first thing any photographer should do is to make an assessment of the light in terms of these four aspects.

Travel Photography: Planning & Documenting

An interesting article from Picture Correct by photographer Peter Phun who has travelled extensively, documenting his travels through photography. He specializes in location portraits, weddings and editorial work. Peter gives some valuable advice for travel photographers.

Travel photography is quite different from other photographic endeavors especially if you plan to make a living from it. Most successful travel photographers are writers as well. Actually in the print world, you can’t separate words from pictures. They complement each other.

What the picture can’t show, the words explain in greater detail. So it’s no surprise that some travel articles are sometimes from husband and wife teams. That’s the perfect job for couples. Think exotic locations, the love of your life with you and endless adventures together.

My biggest problem with travel photography is that a lot of the imagery you see have been so photographed that they’re the equivalent of visual clichés. What comes to mind when you think of China? Great Wall of China, or the Forbidden City in Beijing? Egypt? The Great Pyramids. India… the Taj Mahal. Indonesia…Borobodur. Cambodia…Angkor Wat.

6 Tips for Near-Macro Photography with a Telephoto Lens

This article from Digital Photography School is by Elliot Hook, a wildlife and landscape photographer based in Hertfordshire, UK, and gives some useful tips when using your telephoto lens for macro photography.

Macro photography is the art of capturing the fine detail of very small subjects that may not be able to be seen by the naked eye.  Technically, to fall under the term ‘macro’, the subject should be captured with a reproduction ratio of 1:1, i.e. the subject will be captured on the sensor at 100 % life size.

Macro lenses are specially designed to minimise the focussing distance, allowing the photographer to get closer to the subject and so increase the reproduction ratio.  There are a number of other techniques that can be used to help achieve the desired magnification without a dedicated lens (extension tubes, close-up filters, reversing rings), however, one of less often considered techniques is to use something that you probably already have in your kit bag: a telephoto lens.

Here are three of my macro images which I took using the macro setting on my zoom lens.

Spot Metering Technique with HDR Photography

This article from Picture Correct is by Cee Dhinjan, who offers digital photography tips and a free in-depth online photography course for beginners and keen amateurs, and it gives an in-depth guide to spot metering. 

One of the most accurate and powerful ways to take meter readings of light through the lens to determine the dynamic range of a scene is spot metering. It can help you produce a correct exposure every single time you press the shutter release button.

If you’ve struggled to produce photographs that look right in the shadow, midtone and highlight regions then this step-by-step guide can help you get things right.

First, let me clear a misunderstanding about dynamic range which lies among many photographers. Dynamic range in photography is the difference in brightness from the lightest highlights to the darkest shadows. Let’s say you were shooting a sunset scene where the sky was lit up bright by the sun and the foreground was rendered dark because of its distance from the sun and the low altitude of the sun itself at that time of day. Such scenes have dynamic ranges of several stops.

The Story of Two Identical Twin Photojournalists

Today we feature an interesting video from Picture Correct detailing the work of  two photojournalist, David and Peter Turnley. 

David won the 1990 Pulitzer Prize for photography for images of the political uprisings in China and Eastern Europe, the World Press Photo Picture of the Year in 1988 for a photo taken in Leninakan after the devastating Armenian earthquake and again in 1991 for a picture of a U.S. Sergeant mourning the death of a fellow soldier during the Gulf War, as well as the Overseas Press Club Robert Capa Gold Medal. 

He has been a runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize in photography four times. From 1985 to 1997, he also covered the struggle to end Apartheid, revolutions in Eastern Europe, the student uprising in China, wars in Bosnia and in the Gulf and the fall of the Soviet Union.

Over the past two decades, Peter has travelled to eighty-five countries and covered nearly every major news event of international significance. His photographs have been featured on the cover of Newsweek more than forty times. A renowned street photographer who's lived in and photographed Paris since 1978, he is one of the pre-eminent photographers of the daily life in Paris of his generation.

Photojournalists and identical twin brothers David and Peter Turnley travel around the world covering news stories, from the Middle East to Africa to China and beyond. 

Between the two of them, they cover almost every major event and have been present at many of recent history’s wars, tragedies, and victories, including Tiananmen Square, the Gulf War, and Nelson Mandela’s release from prison. 

Featured in a 60 Minutes segment entitled “Double Exposure” that aired in 1996, the Turnley brothers describe how they got their unlikely start in photojournalism and their parallel journeys to success.

5 Ways to Get Creative with a Fisheye Lens

In this article from Digital Photography School, James Brandon, a photographer from Dallas, looks at what a fisheye lens is and shows just how it can be used to create some outstanding images.

A fisheye lens is easily one of the best ways to get creative and have a blast with photography. As far as lenses go, a fisheye is relatively cheap (around $650) making them accessible to a wide group of photogs. It’s important to know what a fisheye lens is, where it came from, and where the uses of a fisheye lens begin and end.

Originally used for meteorology to study the sky and cloud formations, fisheye’s were originally called “whole-sky lenses.” These lenses quickly became popular in the general photography field because of their fun and unique uses, and of course their incredibly distorted lines. They can be used for many different purposes, both professional and for fun (but mostly for fun).

How to Take Extraordinary Photos by Thinking Creatively

Today we have another article from  Digital Photography School, written by Piper Mackay, a professional travel and wildlife photographer whose work is heavily based in Eastern Africa. Pippa gives some great tips on how to be creative when taking your photos, to help get stunning images.

The creativity in your photographs is what will make your imagery stand out. Most of us, if we commit the time, can technically master the craft of photography. Capturing a compelling image can be much more difficult especially when you are excited, experiencing something for the first time, and are visually overloaded.

You begin pointing and shooting at everything you see. You arrive home, look at your photographs, and see that you have captured extraordinary subjects or a beautiful location, but the images are somewhat mediocre. Taking an extraordinary photograph of and extraordinary subject is what you want to strive for.

I want to share with you a few tips that can quickly help elevate the creativity in your photography and help you to focus on the artistic side of photography; without the creative process, you are really only turning dials and pushing buttons.

The Golden Hours: A Guide to Photographing the Light of Sunrises and Sunsets


We are pleased to introduce a new ebook from Christopher O'Donnell concentrating on how to make the best use of that time of day when the sun is in the lowest part of the sky - at sunrise and sunset.

The Golden Hours: A Guide to Photographing the Light of Sunrises and Sunsets is an eBook written to help guide photographers through the unique challenges that this light presents. Many photographers will often note that their sunrise and sunset images rarely represent the scene they observed. By detailing the steps I go through to create my images – both in the field and in the digital darkroom – I explain why this is so, and more importantly, how to transcend the disparity between your view and your results, allowing you to create realistic images of this beautiful light.
Guide to Photographing the Light of Sunrises and Sunsets
The “golden hours” refer to the window of time when the sun is at its lowest point in the sky, just before it sets or right after it rises. As the sun nears the horizon, the light begins to dramatically transform the landscape before you. The atmosphere becomes thick and golden, shadows are lengthened, and highlights are brightened. Soon, your scene develops texture, depth, and becomes a stunning show of light. It’s a highly-coveted time to photograph the landscape, but is also challenging to many photographers as the uniqueness of this light requires some specialized knowledge to capture.

Guide to Photographing the Light of Sunrises and Sunsets

In this eBook, you will find detailed solutions to the challenges this light presents – from compositions to exposure difficulties – so you can begin to photograph the golden hours with confidence and accuracy. With this new knowledge, you can focus on enjoying your photography while expanding your creative horizons.

Specific topics I cover include:
  • Choosing a Location: How to find prime locations for the golden hours, what tools I use to help me scout, and special considerations to take to help you select the best vantage points.
  • Finding Interest:  How to compose your image, find balance, and unlock your creative potential when framing your scene.
  • Judging Your Light:  This section explains the unique exposure challenges that the golden hours present, and multiple ways to overcome them – allowing you to choose one that compliments your workflow.
  • Tripods and Focusing: Special considerations to take when focusing your image, and the importance of image stabilization for the golden hours.
  • Creativity with Aperture: The golden hour light has a unique ability to transform the landscape, and your depth of field can greatly affect how this light appears. This section shows the creative power your aperture can have during the golden hours.
  • Alternative Compositions: To conclude, this section discusses how to take full advantage of the golden hours and explore different compositions that one would not normally consider, inspiring you to think beyond the mainstream confines and tap into your creativity.

Table of Contents:
Guide to Photographing the Light of Sunrises and Sunsets

I explain the entire process of photographing the golden hours – from choosing a location and camera techniques, to the post processing workflow in your digital darkroom. From start to finish, this comprehensive eBook will guide you step-by-step by detailing the workflow I use to capture the golden hours.
The Golden Hours is more than a guide for sunrises and sunsets; I also discuss other subjects and how to use the golden hour light to illuminate them under a different view – from grand vistas to small focal points.

An Introduction to Lightroom Smart Collections

Today's article from Digital Photography School is aimed new users of Lightshop, or those users who have not yet got to grips with its "Smart Collections" facility. It is written by Helen Bradley, a Lifestyle journalist who divides her time between the real and digital worlds, picking the best from both.

Lightroom has two types of collections: regular Collections and Smart Collections. Smart Collections are live and they are created as a result of filtering your photos according to rules that you write. You cannot add an image to a Smart Collection by dragging and dropping it into the collection. You can’t remove an image from a Smart Collection just because you don’t want it in there – it can only be removed if it fails to meet the criteria you set up for the 

Smart collections are a handy way to create collections and to manage your photos and here I’ll show you how to make use of them: An Introduction to Lightroom Smart Collections

5 Big Tips to add Impact and Variety to your Wildlife Images

Some great tips for those of you taking wildlife images, from Digital Photography School guest contributor Piper Mackay, a professional travel and wildlife photographer whose work is heavily based in Eastern Africa.

Wildlife photography can be very exciting, which generally means your adrenalin is running on overdrive. It is too easy to be caught up in the action of the moment and just snap away at what you are witnessing. What you saw was so great, yet when you view your images they just don’t seem to have the impact that you experienced. I have put together a series of images of wildebeest, generally a very boring animal that is quite drab in color. This is to help illustrate how light, mood, and motion can bring powerful visual impact to your images.

South Africa: A Photographic Exploration of its People, Places & Wildlife

South Africa: A Photographic Exploration of its People, Places & WildlifeWhen a burning sun dips low enough on the horizon to touch the brown-black earth, that is when South Africa is at its very best – a blazing expanse of broad landscapes of sea and veld, dusty savannah and equally dusty pavements. It is a vast country, extending from pristine coastal plain to rugged mountain passes across wide stretches of semi desert and forest, hills and valleys. 

Even travelling South Africans are unprepared for the sheer scale and enormous diversity of this grand landscape. Every day, everywhere, there are new sights to behold and new experiences to share – a graceful old Cape Dutch homestead set against lush vineyards, blue-purple mountains, the demure smile of a Zulu bride, a bird on a wire. It is the sun, the sand, the textures, the colours and the sounds that conjure up the spirit of South Africa. 

This volume is a fine tribute to the country, its people and its land-, sea- and cityscapes. This is the face of the nation – the essence of South Africa.

Sean Fraser graduated from Rhodes University with a degree in Journalism and Media Studies. He is the author of a number of coffee-table, reference, travel and guide books on the people and places of southern Africa, including the best-selling Seven Days in Cape Town, Picturesque South Africa, Cape Town A-Z and Gauteng A-Z, all published by Random House Struik. He lives in Cape Town with his wife and two sons.
