Not every portrait photographer has access to a professional model who knows how to "strike a pose," which makes your job a bit easier. In fact, many photographers who are just starting out use friends and family and their amateur posing techniques can be a bit awkward, to say the least.

If there ever were a contrast in photography styles it would be between popular street photography YouTubers Pierre T. Lambert and Sean Tucker. While Lambert loves how self-imposed time restrictions on his photography get his juices flowing, Tucker is much slower and more deliberate in his approach to making a photo.

Time-lapse videos are all the rage these days but there’s much that separates a decent time-lapse from a great one. One thing that can help set your time-lapse apart is to feature some type of movement in the video to give it a more dynamic look. And one way to add movement is by using some type of camera slider.

Polarizing filters make pictures look like they were taken at either the North Pole or the South Pole. Rotating the Polarizing filter shifts the appearance from North Pole to South Pole and back again. They are not always used to photograph Polar Bears; it’s easy to understand the confusion, but there are no Polar Bears at the South Pole. Polarizers are important because our ice masses are disappearing, melting away and raising the sea level around Miami.

The first time I came across a reference to bokeh in a lens review I found it a bit pretentious. Bokeh may sound like a Japanese dessert, but it’s actually the out-of-focus behavior of your lens. The term is said to come from the Japanese word “boke,” which translates as “blur” or, in some cases, “senility.” Confused? It’s understandable.
