WHEN SOAP is not worse than the “mirror”? MYTHS ABOUT PROFESSIONAL CAMERAS

Why are newly-minded owners of SLR cameras * who do not have the necessary skills in handling photographic equipment, are disappointed in the results they see on the monitor? Why are photographers so indignant when, when meeting with clients, first of all they hear “What camera do you have?” With this rhetorical note we will begin to dethrone the myths about SLR cameras.
Myth 1. A SLR camera anyone can take a photographic masterpiece.

ONLINE ANALOGUE PHOTOSHOP FOR QUICK TREATMENT

In order not to occupy disk space and load the system, I do not install some programs on my laptop, including Photoshop. An intelligent color correction on a laptop monitor never goes out, and it is also not very convenient to clean the garbage and clean the skin with a touchpad. However, it also happens that the computer is not at hand, and an elementary correction of photographs is sometimes required.
For this purpose I use Photoshop online, more precisely, not quite Photoshop, but its online analogue Pixlr. For a quick correction, it has all the basic tools (in the picture above – the vertical panel on the right), as well as many features that are in the usual Photoshop (menu above).
After downloading, the editor offers to open the photo in many ways. You can download from your computer, you can open from the link: Continue reading

ALEXANDER Sennikov. NATURALMS

Today, my guest is a wonderful photographer Alexander Sennikov, who will please us with emotional and expressive still lifes. Looking at his work, you involuntarily feel a desire to embark on rapturous epithets. 🙂 However, Alexander’s photos are good not only because they bring forth warm memories – they are good “photographically”. Composition and light – the most important tools of any photographer – are used in the still lifes of the author competently and to the point.
But Alexander himself writes about creating his still lifes:
“I have long liked to look at the site where I laid out my macro, photographs — still-lifes of various authors. It was thought that in order to shoot like that, you need some kind of special equipment – illuminators, reflectors, screens, backgrounds, and so on. Continue reading
