I've been interested in timelapse photography since I saw the first video of it.  I haven't attempted it as of yet, but await the day I will. Until then, I can still enjoy what others create.   This one is from TSO Photography on Youtube.

Sometimes you just don't have the opportunity to shoot in the early or late hour golden light.  You get a late jump on your photo shoot and have to contend with shooting at midday.  This means you have to contend with harsh flat light, shadows under the eyes and blown out backgrounds.  In this Adorama TV video, Joe McNally gives some tips on how to handle that situation.

Though this is geared towards portrait photography, these tips can be applied to any type of shooting; whether portrait or macro /closeup photography.  This is the first of a two part series.



We all get there at some point or another.  You feel like your photography has hit a dead end, gone stagnant.  You're looking for an excuse to shoot something different to jump start your creative side, but you don't have a clue where to start.  Well, don't worry, be happy!  Try out any of the 10 photographers listed in this article and see if you don't put a little excitement back in your shooting.
