Continuing the Black and White Photography theme we’ve been on lately in the latest forum assignment (where the photos featured in this post were submitted) I thought I’d share five pretty random Black and White Photography Tips . 1. Shoot in RAW I know many readers of DPS can’t shoot in RAW (because their camera doesn’t offer it) or don’t shoot in RAW (because they either don’t know how or don’t like to) but for the most control in the post production phase of converting your color images into black and white ones – you’ll want to shoot in RAW if your camera does allow it.
Note: File this one under ‘bizarre’, ‘silly’ or ‘things to do on a boring rainy day’… Looking to take a portraits with a quirky twist? Try ‘ jowling ‘ (also sometimes known as slap n’ flap).
Of all the masters of the camera who passed away this year, none was as influential or renowned as Henri Cartier-Bresson, among the towering figures of 20th-century photography. As we look back on the milestones of 2004, it seems fitting to pay homage to H.C.B., who died in August at age 95.

My photographs of Alison, because of the nature of our relationship, are very much a father-daughter collaboration-Alison permitting me access to private moments of our life, which might, under different circumstances, be off-limits to a parent.
Polaroid 600 film actually fits in an SX-70 camera pretty easily. The problem with using 600 film in the SX-70 is that it is four times more sensitive than SX-70 film. Without modification, all your photos taken with 600 film would be overexposed.
A few days ago a friend (a fan of both good photography and pets) discovered a Web site with particularly interesting and expressive photos of dogs and cats. I checked out the site, Fat Orange Cat Studio , and was mighty impressed with how photographer Li Ward captures that blink-of-the-eye moment. I take lots of photos of my dog and cat but I am always about two seconds behind. So how does she do it? I contacted Ms.
One camera function that can be a lot of fun to play with (and that can get you some interesting results) is slow sync flash . Low Light Photography Options When shooting with a subject in low light situations you generally have two options; either to shoot with a flash or to shoot with a slow shutter speed. 1.
