    Getting started with Canon Speedlites featuring Brian Worley

    Getting started with Canon Speedlites featuring Brian Worley

    When you get started with Speedlites, there are so many decisions — on camera or off, optical or radio, one flash or many, fill flash or key. Fortunately for us, we have the man who has been going deep with Canon products for almost 25 years. 
    Brian Worley is a former product manager for Canon Europe and still works with them on a contract basis. If you have ever read the UK photography magazines, PhotoPlus, or EOS User, you’ve probably read his words. Well, today, we get to pick his brain on Speedlites. 
    If you are a natural light photographer, only because you are afraid of Speedlites, then fear no more. Brian Worley is going to simplify Speedlites for you. By the end of this episode, I hope you’ll be motivated to take a Speedlite or two out to see what you can create.

    How to make street portraits

    How to make street portraits

    I walked by Frank and Scott three times before I stopped and asked to take their photo. The two tattoo artists were joking around outside a tattoo shop, and I was out shooting street portraits for my 100 Strangers project.
    Over the years, I’ve done photographed plenty of street portraits and even started teaching others how to do it. Most people I teach overcome the same initial fears and find that it’s a rewarding experience for them too.
    Now, it’s your turn. In this episode, I will show you how you can make street portraits confidently.

    How to create street photography featuring YouTuber Josh Katz

    How to create street photography featuring YouTuber Josh Katz

    Street photography is one of the more accessible yet challenging forms of photography. As long as you have a camera, any camera, it’s available to you. 
    We’ve been seeing it in some form or another for several decades now. But if you want to be good, you have to work at it. You have to decide which approach you want to take and how you will go about creating. Should you engage or not engage people. And how you will deal with them?
    Josh Katz has not only thought about all these issues, he has also been sharing and teaching about them on his popular YouTube channel. He has an earnest charm when he teaches, which probably accounts for his popularity. His YouTube channel has 370,000 subscribers — which is almost the same population of my home town, New Orleans.
    He has a lot of great insights for us, too.

    Help! I have to photograph a wedding

    Help! I have to photograph a wedding

    Sometimes the mayday comes with a long explanation. Sometimes it is a message that is short and to the point.

    “Help I have to photograph a wedding!” 

    I know many photographers get that call, because often, I get the next mayday, “Help! I have to photograph a wedding!

    In this episode, I’ll give the full response I often wished I had the time to offer. Here is everything a non-wedding photographer should know before attempting a wedding.

    Scott Kelby - 'talking about two of my favorite things, photography & sports'

    For a photographer and sports fan growing up in a football town, there’s one question you always dream of hearing, “would you like to shoot from the sidelines of an NFL game?”
    And for Scott Kelby, the dream came true. He shot for three years as a backup wire service photographer and another six years as the primary wire service photographer covering his hometown Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
    As you might expect, that experience comes with lots of great stories, not to mention helpful photography lessons.
    I’m talking photography and sports with THE Scott Kelby.

    5 Ps of Travel Photography - A Comprehensive Guide

    5 Ps of Travel Photography - A Comprehensive Guide

    Scott Kelby shared a rare moment of honesty that you don’t usually hear from professional photographers. 

    “Do you know how you can take better pictures? Go somewhere interesting!” he joked during a presentation at PhotoPlus Expo. “Do you see this photo?” he said of a spectacular sunset image. “I just showed up and pressed the button.”
    Of course, Scott is simplifying his role quite a bit. He’s right that travel photography is a great way to create photographs, but it requires more than showing up and pushing a button. 
    Follow these 5 Ps for great travel photographs and travel photography experiences.
