Putting Together a Budget DIY Lighting System | Shuttertalk Introduction A flexible lighting system is something that I have wanted to play with for a while, but like everything else in photography it seems to be a fairly expensive area to get into, at least when you consider the relative simplicity of a light-bulb. Thankfully there are a number of cheap and widely-available or easily-made items that can provide most of the same functionality at a small fraction of the price. For under US$75, this article will show you how to put together a flexible and robust lighting system that is both useful and relatively easy on the hip pocket. 1. I am not suggesting these items are just as good as the expensive purpose-built ones, just that they provide surprisingly good results and are very inexpensive. Getting Started top Despite trying to keep costs down, I’ve also tried to avoid being cheap-and-nasty about things. The items I include in this article are: Components top Hot Lights 2. Luckily the solution is just as easy. 3. Hot Light Diffusers 4. Reflectors

DIY Lighting Hacks for Digital Photographers A Post By: Darren Rowse Lighting can be the difference between a good shot and a great one. Walk into most professional photographer’s studios and you’ll be confronted with truckloads of lighting equipment. To the average hobby photographer it’s enough to make your mind boggle – and for your stomach to turn as you think about the cost of it all. Most of us can’t afford a full lighting rig – however what if there was a way to experiment with the type of lighting gear that pro photographers use without spending too much money? In this post I’ve found 10 DIY Flash and Lighting Hacks that put some of these lighting techniques within the grasp of the rest of us. 1. What can you make with six speedlight flashes, a coffee can and a little spare time? You get a multi-super-sb-ring-light! You could probably also blind a small village if you’re not careful! Find out what it is, how to make one and what the results are like here. 2. The result is that you’ll have a Poor Mans Ring Flash. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Photography 101: Know Your DSLR Dial You know all those little symbols on that wheel at the top of your DSLR camera? They can elevate your photos to a more professional level. We’ve broke the important ones down for you symbol-by-symbol so you can make the most of your camera. Auto (‘A’ or camera symbol, sometimes it’s colored green) This mode is for camera newbies since it sets the exposure and shutter speed automatically for you. Macro (flower icon) When enabled, it unlocks extra focus range to allow the camera to focus on close-up items, perfect for when you are getting a shot of your accessories. Portrait (person icon) In this mode the camera gives priority to close-up subjects with face detection enabled (if available) and sets the flash (if enabled) to red-eye reduction, which can be useful when highlighting make up tips or beauty products for your face. Programmed (P icon) This is also an automatic mode, but also has a few features that can be controlled manually. Shutter speed priority (S icon, or sometimes Tv icon)

The Two Most Important Questions to Ask When Editing Photos When it comes to editing photos, it can be easy to allow your editing to follow trend or whatever leads to the path of least resistance– (call upon your favorite action or preset and be done with it.) Sometimes this can be very fitting for your vision, but in the grand scheme–your work will have more depth if there is some purpose behind your choices. These are the two questions I use to guide my photo editing choices: Where am I supposed to look? 1. What is the most important part of the image? Some of my favorite tools for leading people to LOOK at my subject is through the use of the crop, black and white conversions, and the blacks slider. Crop I always recommending composing your shots the way you want it when you shoot the image. Black & White Conversion Blacks Slider 2. The emotion of color: 1. 2.

I started noticing this really cool “effect” that professional photographers achieved…a blurry background. No matter how hard I tried, the blurry background was not happening. Sadly, I started thinking that photographers must be creating this with a Gaussian Blur in Photoshop. (You don’t even want to see those photos I edited!) Here’s what I learned.
