Tip of the Week


Tara Lee said: I always underexpose by around 1/4 of a stop to maintain colors and depth as best as possible, then bring up shadows and exposure on my subject ever-so-slightly in post-processing. I love color, and the pink sky this evening was EVERYTHING. I brought saturation up minimally, added contrast moderately, and a tiny bit of clarity, and boom!

Thank you so much for the feature @camera_mama!! It means so much to me to be featured with so many talented photographers. Top Tips: (1) PLAN, PLAN, PLAN (2) Do each person at a time vs. ordered by box, (3) Align camera as close to perpendicular as possible to avoid perspective distortion and last but not least, just go with it! With two small kids, it was a little chaotic mess and not everyone was happy but it all worked out in the end.

The lens was Canon 16-35 f/2.8L II and I was lying on the ground under the swing (it’s a pretty high swing). I sat on this image for a while not knowing how the process it. I shot it with a color image in mind but just couldn’t make it work the way I wanted. After a while I realized that the tree (the “magic tree” as the kids call it) would work great in black and white if I could separate it from the background so I processed it with the tree and my daughter having much more contrast than the surrounding trees above.

This shot was inspired by the tic-tac-toe type of images that I saw a lot in food/still life photography. It was a simple composite. I first drew the grid with a chalk and set up everything other than my little guy on the blackboard side of my son’s painting easel. And I was shooting with my 16-35mm lens at 24 mm and f/4. A wide angle lens made it so much easier to shoot looking down. Then I asked my son to lie down and shot a few images of him with the snow angel pose at the same location so the lighting matches easily. I had my son lie down on the floor and I was standing on our dining table and shot at 24mm focal length. My boy is barely 3, so that makes it easier, too. If you cannot fit [your subject] in one image, maybe try and take two, then stitch then together in Photoshop.  I then cut him out and placed him on the flatlay in Photoshop. And the final step was to add proper shadow to him using drop shadow and curve adjustments to make the whole thing look more realistic. Hope this helps!
