After doing a little searching, I chose three classic topics, starting with the use of reflectors. Great photographers are respected because of three primary things: their skill set, being prepared for any situation and their passion for the craft, quality and their clients. And, most of them, especially portrait artists ALWAYS have a reflector in their bag. They control the light where they want it to go.
My next choice was a video on backlighting and silhouettes. I see these concepts most often used in wedding images. Once again, I see artists with incredible passion who come so close to capturing an outstanding image, but miss the mark.
Last in the three was a quick lesson in night photography. As with both of the previous videos, Ken Hubbard does an outstanding job as an educator talking about a timeless technique. So many of you are regularly in nighttime situations, especially wedding photographers capturing a location venue at a wedding reception. Instead of just capturing an average scene-setter shot for the album, why not make it your very best.
There’s a lot of great content in the Tamron archives and it’s so worth your time to check out all the support that’s just a mouse click away. Also, Tamron’s got some terrific rebates right now on eight different lenses. Thanks to YouTube and their archives I was able to find a video on each lens which not only share information about the product, but often educational tips on creating better images.
