There are loads of corny, pointless and overly sentimental 'quotes' all over the web about what a photograph is and how to capture great images. The quotes that really do help and are inspirational are from those who really know/knew about their craft. These are the quotes that you should take notice of and use to guide your photography (YOLO free zone!) :)
I've been running FPR and interacting on various social networks for over 6 years now. In that time I've changed tactics and strategy more time than I can count, have had successes form surprising sources and met some great people. When I wrote down the social schedule I now carry out as a natural part of my day, I was pretty surprised at the work that goes into maintaining a blog and online presence.
I write a lot of articles, I write during the day for the software supplier I work for and in the evenings for FPR. Inevitably, writing this much content leads to periods where inspiration and ideas for posts are hard to find. There are however a number of sources that always help, both obvious and not so obvious.
Following on from the previous post regarding photography RSS feeds, I thought I'd scour the web for a load of useful feeds for you to follow or use in a mashup pipe. Great for keeping up to date with news, reviews and general photography goodness:)
Everyone has their favourite photography sites. Whether it's for tutorials, galleries, the latest tech news or interviews with inspirational photographers. We usually have a process whereby we'll systematically go to each of the individual sites stored in our favourites folder, but what if you could combine all of your favourite sites updates into one super photography stream? Well, you can, here's how.
You may have noticed in some of your images that you have colour 'fringing' around certain objects. This is called Chromatic Aberration, it usually occurs when you have areas of high contrast in your image and your camera's lens is unable to focus and process the darker and lighter areas where the fringing occurs. If this happens and you have Photoshop, the problem can be reduced or even eliminated.
If you haven't seen it yet, you need to watch True Detective. As well as being a superbly acted, dark detective series, it also boasts some epic double exposure photography during the opening credits. Below are some examples of the great work the series photography department.
