Creating Photographic Composition

Creating Photographic Composition | Kol Tregaskes Photography Blog | Scoop.it

This Photography tutorial will show you how to create a well balanced photographic composition.

 

"Composition is one of the most important aspects of photography. No matter how gorgeous your lighting might be, or how unique your subject matter is, or how perfect your exposure might be, or even how great your camera and lens are, your shot will still suffer greatly if the image is lacking a good composition."

Behind the Scenes with a National Geographic Photographer

Behind the Scenes with a National Geographic Photographer | Kol Tregaskes Photography Blog | Scoop.it

"National Geographic recently launched a new section on its website called Field Test, giving readers a pretty unique look at the behind-the-scenes stories from its photographers.

 

Starting out with photographer Michael Nichols, National Geographic’s Field Test takes us into the heart of Africa, in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, giving us a little bit of insight into how the up-close-and-personal wildlife photos are taken, what technology was used, and of course, we get to see some gorgeous photography in the process."

"The second collection of images from 2011 once again brought us nature at it's full force with floods, drought, wild fires, tornadoes and spectacular images of volcanic eruptions. The death of Osama bin Laden, the attack on a island in Norway by a lone gunman, continued fighting in Libya, and protests around the globe were a few of the news events dominating the headlines. -- Lloyd Young Please see part 1 from Monday and watch for part 3 Friday."

HDR for Black and White: A Step By Step Guide

HDR for Black and White: A Step By Step Guide | Kol Tregaskes Photography Blog | Scoop.it

"A few months ago, DPS published an article I wrote entitled “How to See in Black and White.” That article had a small bonus section at the end, in which I talked about how useful HDR can be to the monochrome photographer – a fact that is initially somewhat counterintuitive, since HDR is stereotypically held to be all about garish, over-done colors and excessive haloing.

 

In fact, as I talked about in that previous article, HDR can be extremely useful in bringing out microtexture, enhancing the effect of light and shadow, and in creatively influencing the overall tone of the image. All of these things lend themselves immediately and powerfully to black and white photographs, making HDR another viable tool in the monochrome photographer’s arsenal.

 

That section of the article received many comments and questions. In particular, a lot of photographers were wondering about the “right” way to make a black and white HDR, given that there are, in fact, numerous possible paths you can take through the editing process to achieve the end result. With this article I will show you how I do it – my ‘recommended’ way – and also address a few alternative methods. I encourage you to experiment and discover which method works best for you, artistically, creatively, and economically."
