Tips from a Master Photographer:  Inspiration

Inspiration is everything in photography. Most photographers didn’t get into photography because we loved sitting behind a computer or because we loved sitting in a darkroom. We got into photography because we saw something that inspired us. Whether that was a National Geographic Magazine article that took us first-hand into some remote part of the world or because we grew up next to a father or grandfather that taught us about the craft, there was something that inspired us.

One Month with the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art lens

In the last few weeks I have had the chance to travel with Sigma’s 18-35mm F1.8 lens to New Jersey, Las Vegas and Chicago. The lens was put through the tests on a Canon 7D, 50D, and 60D.

Why the 24-105mm F4 | A Is THE Ideal Wedding Lens

It can be a challenge to think of some great images when photographing weddings. I have a couple signature images I always love though.

One if them is the Bride sitting on her bed holding her wedding dress. First, I have her sit on the bed and cross her ankles. I then bring the dress up to her and have her hold it. I always make sure the dress is all smoothed out and fixed nicely. I place her bouquet in a vase next to the bed for accent. I like to try and suggest clothing for the Bride when doing this pose, as jeans are not classy enough.
