Seeing Pictures: Negative Space

What’s Not There

by Jim Zuckerman

The concept of negative space has to do with compositional balance. Negative space simply means an area of an image that is largely devoid of subject matter. In other words, it’s a blank area like the sky, an expanse of plaster, the surface of a...

Lighting portrait subjects with different hair and skin color can be a challenge, especially when you are using a dark background. With a little time spent adjusting the color temperature and placement of your lights, you won’t have to rely on color correcting the images later. No lighting challenge is too extreme if you break it down into a few simple steps. Do you want hair lighter or darker; do you want to complement or contrast the skin tone; and what is the overall “look” you desire—warm or cold? By answering these questions, you will be able to determine which color temperature of light you need to create the mood for the image. Again, don’t just set the camera on auto white balance. Set your daylight or tungsten balance lights accordingly and manually adjust the camera’s color temperature—you’ll be glad you did.

Technology Paves the Path

by Ron Leach

A decade ago pundits were describing the business of photography as a "sunset
industry," suggesting that the "smart money" should look elsewhere
for innovation and profits. Then came the digital revolution which not only
changed the manner in which we capture, share...

Low Light Photography

The Night Time Is The Right Time

Light is light. It doesn’t matter if it comes from the sun, the moon, street lights, or even a flash. In very low light you can still get a photo; it might just take some time since you might have to expose the scene for minutes instead offract...
