photographing with heart and vision: a workshop recap

by Jodi Arego
Photographing with Heart and Vision was born out of my consuming desire to make connections… honest connections with people, with the essence of places, and with simple, ordinary moments.

Just like you, I crave a life full of rich and meaningful experiences that touch me deeply and stir something inside my heart.  But, honestly, the ebb and flow of the responsibilities of everyday life have their way of reminding me time and time again that these life-giving experiences don’t(…)

getting through photographic ruts with introspection

by Sarah Lalone
Something drew us all to photography, and that something is rooted really deep.

We can accept that as true and not linger on it: inside everyone who has bothered to learn photography is a strong motivation… even if we can’t give that motivation a name or even understand what it is yet.  I’m going to come back to this again because this initial motivation is going to save us from feeling adrift later on.

It seems like we all go(…)

atmosphere: a surrounding influence or environment

Natural Light with Atmosphere. That must be a course all on Mother Nature right? The wind, rain, sleet and snow. How to shoot when it’s raining cats and dogs. How to photograph your children during those stormy winter days. How to tackle the outdoor elements that might otherwise hinder your perfect vision for a sunny day shot.

“That’s not the class for me,” you might think. “It never snows here. Hardly even rains. A workshop on weather wouldn’t be the right(…)

a new perspective on photography

by April Nienhuis
When I was little, I loved to color.

I loved it so much, and was pretty good at it, that I won several coloring competitions held in my town one Halloween when I was about 5 years old.  While I may not color much anymore, my youngest child shares the same joy for coloring that I once did.  Of my 3 kids, she’s the one most likely to color inside the lines too.

What does this have to do with(…)

a video photoshop tutorial: before and after in CS6

You still choose your adjustments from the adjustment(…)

photoshop friday: a before & after

It’s a really lovely sooc image and doesn’t need much. The main issue is that mom and baby both have excess magenta on their faces and are a bit underexposed as well. To fix this, I used 4 adjustment layers.
This was our(…)

photoshop friday: hue/saturation vs vibrance adjustments

by Lisa Harrison
What’s the difference between Hue/Saturation and Vibrance adjustments? I saw someone ask this question the other day so I thought I would give a quick explanation and illustration. You’ll find the vibrance slider in Lightroom, ACR and Photoshop. Since this is Photoshop Friday, I’ll show you where you can find it in Photoshop. It’s located in the Adjustments Panel (a). You’ll find Hue/Saturation there as well (b).
