Shutter Release: Shaping light, dos and don’ts of photographing models and travel photography


posted Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at 9:30 AM EST


Yesterday was a big day of announcements, so we held off on a roundup article, but Shutter Release is back today. Our regular roundup feature at Imaging Resource features four very different topics today. We have a look at shaping light with photographer Albert Watson, the five dos and don'ts of photographing models, travel in Iceland with photographer Andrew Marr and finally a look at whether or not tourism and photographers are "ruining photography."

Shaping light with Albert Watson - SLR Lounge

In conjunction with Profoto, photographer Albert Watson photographed "ballet's enfant terrible" Sergei Polunin. We go behind the scenes with Watson and Profoto lighting in the video below. It's neat to see not only how Watson works, but also to see how he uses Profoto lighting to create his images.

Five dos and don'ts of photographing models - Fstoppers

We have featured photographer Manny Ortiz's videos on numerous occasions at Imaging Resource. His latest video focuses on the five dos and don'ts when photographing models. Alongside his wife and frequent model, Manny and Diana discuss the best practices when working with models, so you get to learn from both sides of the camera.

Andrew Marr uses graduated ND filters in Iceland - Andrew Marr

Photographer Andrew Marr visited Iceland and came back with not only great images, but also awesome video content. In this video, we go behind the scenes with Marr at lava fields in Iceland and as he uses graduated neutral density filters.

Are tourists and photographers ruining photography? Fstoppers

Right after looking at a photographer traveling through a beautiful area, while being very respectful, let's consider what Brendan van Son has to say about people traveling to beautiful areas. While it's true that some tourists and some of our fellow photographers behave poorly in beautiful areas, ruining nature for the rest of us, it's also the case that the majority of people are respectful and appreciative of our environment. Let's hope that the rowdy few don't ruin opportunities for everyone else.
