The Inverse Square Law of Light Explained in Simple Terms for Photographers If the term “inverse square law of light” immediately sets you to hyperventilating as flashbacks of college physics begin playing in your mind’s eye, take a few breaths into that paper bag, calm down, and click play on the video above. In 6 minutes, Karl Taylor will explain this law and how it affects you specifically as a photographer without overwhelming you in the process. In simple terms, and with a straightforward example, Taylor shows you how moving a light further away from a group of people makes it possible to properly expose everybody (both the ones closest to and ones farthest away from the light), and why we have the inverse square law of light to thank for it. It wouldn’t do to bog down such a simple explanation with a complicated summary, and so we’ll let the video do the talking from here out. Check it out at the top and drop you feedback down below.

Quick Picture Tools - Free Online Image Editors Visual Hunt Free Technology for Teachers In-Depth Presentation Demystifies the Gray Areas of Copyright Law for Photographers This hour and fifteen minute-long presentation is one of the most detailed and useful videos on copyright law for photographers that we’ve run across. Put together by B&H in New York, they asked the The Copyright Zone guys, photographer Jack Reznicki and lawyer Ed Greenberg, to tell viewers and attendees “everything you wanted to know about copyright but were afraid to ask.” A mark in the pros column for this video, and one of the reasons you should bookmark it if you can’t view it right away, is that they’re not going over the absolute basics. The point of the presentation is to address the “boatload bad information, myths, factoids, and half-truths” about copyright that are floating around. At an hour and fifteen minutes, it’s not a short watch by any stretch of the imagination, but the duo’s fun and funny style makes for an engaging presentation that isn’t at all difficult to sit through.

The Ultimate Directory Of Free Image Sources So, you need an image for your blog? We’ve spent some time categorizing our favorite sources for free images and organizing them in such a way as to help you find what you’re looking for. Here are the criteria we’ve examined: Subjects: Does a site focus on specific genres of images, or is it a mass collection of various image types? High Resolution: Lots of great image resources emerged in the pre-Web 2.0 phase, but it wasn’t until bandwidth dramatically increased that allowed for the uploading of much higher resolution images suitable for editing and printing. License: The licenses vary extremely from source to source. Safety: Government sites and many specific subject collections are extremely safe for students to use. Search Engines While these websites do not actually contribute image content themselves, they’re able to index images in a way that makes it easier to search for free content.
