15 Tips for Low Light Landscape Photography. A Post By: Natalie Denton (nee Johnson) Capturing scenes in low light remains one of the most challenging aspects of photography, yet the results when executed well can be truly captivating. Whether it’s an energetic cityscape or ethereal seascape the possibilities are endless. Here are a few essentials points to consider before you begin. It’s a good idea to formulate a plan of attack before the twilight hour so scout out a position while there is another available light and grab a few set up shots to make sure your scene works and will be free from distracting objects.

Cityscapes are best viewed from a distance, whereas seascapes are more dramatic nearer to the shoreline.

9 Top Photography Composition Rules You Need To Know. Here's 9 top photography composition rules for you to learn, shoot with then if you want to, break. 1. Fill The Frame / Cropping If your shot is in danger of losing impact due to a busy background/surroundings, crop in tight around your main point of focus, eliminating the background so all attention falls on your main subject. This works particularly well with portraits when you're trying to capture something more intimate and focused or are shooting in a busy location where what's around them would just cause a distraction. Filling the frame could involve you capturing them from the waist up or for more impact, fill the frame with just their face.

Patterns are another subject that when capturing, you should fill the frame with, aligning it up carefully to ensure it's straight. 2. Keep an eye on the edges of your frame to make sure the person/animal you're photographing hasn't had any of their body parts chopped off by it. 3. 4.

Video Tutorial – DIY Wooden Picture. Orton Imagery - Photography Tactics. Last Autumn, I stumbled across a series of steps in Photoshop which produced some absolutely stunning results. The photo below – of a friend’s daughter – was my first accidental encounter with what I later learned was a technique invented by Landscape photographer Michael Orton many years ago. The technique essentially uses multiple layers – each slightly over exposed – one sharp, the other blurred. In the case of Nia – above – my blurred layer was sepia toned, giving her a wonderful golden glow. Over the past 9 months I have worked with the technique quite extensively. While not always well-suited for photos of people, I have been able to produce some stunning landscape images, dripping with rich tones and vibrant highlights. If you want to learn more about the intricate details behind the history of Orton’s effect and see some amazing examples of the results, I encourage you to check out Marko Kulik’s Podcast interview w/ Michael Orton.

Post-processing is an unavoidable, inseparable part of professional photography today, be it photojournalism or fashion photography. Because of that, choosing the right software tool for post-processing your work efficiently is as important as having the right camera and lens combination for the job. It is no surprise that demand for such flexible and powerful software is met with some serious contenders. One of such contenders comes courtesy of Adobe, a software development company best known for its powerful graphics tool Photoshop.

Nowadays Photoshop is widely used by photographers (hence the term “to photoshop” applied to almost any sort of image editing), but it is not intended strictly for photographers – it has a much broader user appeal.

With all the advanced Photoshop tutorials we’ve been making here on groovyPost, we figured it probably made sense to take a step back and review some of the basics for those of you who might not “yet” be experts… So over the next few weeks were going to be working on a series of groovyPost’s covering all the basics for Adobe Photoshop CS5. The goal of the series is to break things down to the most basic level so even those who have never used Photoshop before can get comfortable with this great app.

To kick things off, our Photoshop expert DW96 has created a groovy Video / Screencast which walks through the high level basics of the Photoshop CS5 Interface and each of the basic tools / functions you should become familiar with on the Photoshop toolbar.

Ok, I know, I know, before you are even going to read my first paragraph you are probably wondering … why in the world am I giving other people, many who are better in photography than me, advice on how to get popular on 500px? How can someone who isn’t even that popular on 500px give advice to others? If you bear with me for a second, I’ll explain myself. First off, although I may only have about 11 000 views on all of my pictures, it is only spread out among 12 pictures.

That gives around 900 views per picture, which is certainly well above the average photo uploaded on 500px. Every photo of mine uploaded has made the popular chart, and all but two of them have hit the 90 pulse mark, with a few of them hitting 95 and higher, all that without having a lot of followers. But no, you won’t be able to hit the 99 pulse mark (aka popular page #1) on 500px in just a few days by following my tips, and I haven’t reached that high myself (yet).
