HOW TO PHOTOGRAPHY CHILDREN?

And again we will return to this issue, since it is always relevant. This article has collected some tips on child photography. They are described below in two parts: “Camera Setup” and “Shooting”. Meet, adopt and remember that nothing in the photo is a dogma.
Start by switching the camera to aperture priority mode. This will allow you to have some creative control over the depth of field, which can be very important for portraits. If your camera does not have such a mode, it may have a “portrait” mode, which is worth a try to get nice fuzzy backgrounds.
Set your aperture to f / 5.6 to get started. This will throw the background out of focus (unless the children stand directly next to the wall), however, it will give you enough depth of field to keep the models’ faces in focus. Continue reading

PHOTO ASSEMBLY OF THE FACE: HOW TO REPLACE A FAILED GRIMASO BY A BEAUTIFUL SMILE

Today, visiting my blog are American photographers Nina and Cecilia, whose photos I’ve already shown. They will tell about how to make photomontage of the face. Some of the actions described below will save you from headaches in situations where someone in the group portrait blinked, twisted his face, or turned away. Especially often such situations happen with small children. According to Nina and Cecilia, many clients do not even know that the face was taken from another photo. The task of the photographer – to replace the face so that no one noticed.
So, the picture above shows two photos used for the photomontage. The photo on the right is the main one, only the face is taken from the photo on the left.

JOSEF THE TRUNK: RARE INTERVIEW WITH A PHOTOGRAPH, PHOTOS, SHORT BIOGRAPHY

Joseph Koudelka is a wonderful person and photographer. He has written a lot of biographical references about him, but those who talked with him personally speak best of him. Therefore, instead of a biography, I am pleased to present you a translation of an interview with a photographer taken by Tim Nokes.
“… Over the past fifty years, Josef Koudelka has shot hundreds of wonderful photos. In a rare interview with a photographer, I was able to question Koudelka about his exciting career and why Koudelka was the only person who could openly criticize Henri Cartier-Bresson.
45 years ago, the photographer for the first time decided to show his photos, and today he is considered a man of mystery. His works reveal the beauty of abstract forms and the plasticity of threatening shadows in desert landscapes, in which people are deprived of the right to vote. Continue reading
