6 ways to capture a child’s personality

by Tamryn Jones

I remember when first starting out with my photography how all I wanted for an image was correct exposure and great eye contact.  Moving beyond the ‘cheese’ smile is an accomplishment in itself, but how do we go about getting that connection?
How do we capture personality and honesty?
Here are some tips I have picked up along the way.
1.  The laughter recovery.
This is a quick fix trick when I’m just not getting the shot I want.  My kids are(…)

Beyond Color: expressing your vision in black and white

Fine art photographer and Click Away presenter Cole Thompson has always preferred black-and-white; it’s how he “sees” as an artist. This summer, Cole shared his vision with Click Magazine (“Vision Quest,” July-August issue) and generously added some advice on creating your own high-impact black-and-white images. – Susan Brinkley

There’s all the difference in the world between a black-and-white image created in the camera or simply de-saturated, and an image that you’ve planned and processed as a black-and-white expression of your art.

personal photo project: 28 days of february

Personal Photography Project of Amy Schuff

28 days of february

What was your personal project and what inspired you to start it?
Back before the wonderful craze of 365 day photo projects, I stumbled upon a photographer who took photos of her kids each day for the month of January. I thought it was a lovely project and was sad when it ended. At the time, photography was new to me and I went a couple years thinking that projects like that were for(…)

shoot for black and white

by Candice Zugich

I absolutely adore black and white images! There’s something so personal, so emotional, so raw about them. black and white imagery tells us a story, a story about us, it pauses life in one shot, it keeps you wanting more.
Light
That being said, it takes a few things to make sure you nail that kind of emotion out of a black and white image. As a photographer who uses black and white all the time, there are a few(…)

A Day In The Life with Megan Dill

Since becoming a stay-at-home-mom when my 3-month-old was born this past summer, I’ve been reveling in spending quality time with both of my boys.  It was a bit too cold to play outside this day, so we had plenty of fun indoors.  A trip to the local library, time in our “school room”, yummy snacks, and lounging by the Christmas tree comprised our slow-paced day.  I can get used to this!

Personal Photography Project of Jessica Nelson

What is/was your personal project and what inspired you to start it?
In January of this year I was inspired to start a daily project of my kids for the entire month.  Little did I know it would morph into a 365, but that’s another topic of discussion.  I started out with the only goal of shooting them each day but as the first few days went on I realized that I was having(…)

embrace the grain

by Emma Wood

It seems as though we spend so much time, effort and money to find the highest definition cameras and the sharpest lenses. We aim for low, or no digital noise (aka electronic noise – usually caused by signal amplification at high ISOs within the camera processing magic). We get the highest resolution of camera we can find and the lowest f-stop capable lenses, so we can shoot at lower ISOs. You may shoot in raw rather than in(…)

A Day In The Life with Allison Jacobs
While I am usually working full time throughout the week, I took these Day in the Life images while we were on summer vacation visiting family and friends in Texas.  This doesn’t illustrate a typical day unless you consider we are always up for an adventure around here (that would be the chasing the squirrel part of this particular day).  This day included sleeping in until 8:00 am, running in the Texas heat(…)

my photography journey | emma wood

My Photography Journey by Emma Wood
It began long before I even knew it began.  My love for images and photography, so deep seeded that I see now it probably couldn’t have been any other way.  I used to spend hours flicking through images that my parents had taken of my sisters and I – literally in awe of the fact that moments could be frozen and re-lived through images.  I spent my childhood watching old black and white movies, and I really wasn’t(…)

Morning always starts off with a cup of tea – I just cant seem to function without this and the kids know not to disturb me till I’ve finished.

Then the post arrives, looks mostly like bills today!

Jacob is now up. It’s the Easter holidays so no school for two weeks.

Jaiden is fed and dressed so he is now off playing with his toys.

Followed by looking at a book!

Which soon gets boring as the(…)
