So much of the beauty in photography is the lighting. I was recently asked to shoot a valentine for my friend who had been asked to photograph him at the beginning of the year. I was a little hesitant to do this, but I was also excited to capture him as a younger, more carefree version of himself before he started his new year of living a simpler life.
What I found interesting about shooting a valentine was that I noticed that, unlike other holidays, you don’t really have a good way of photographing them. You can use flash, but it’s not always at the right angle. If you are going to shoot a valentine, I recommend you have someone stand in front of the camera with a light on the side of it so that you can shoot the whole front of the face from the same angle.
The best way to do this is to get yourself a Nikon D610. It comes with a built-in flash that will allow you to shoot directly into the face with little worry of it being blown out of focus. The only other thing to consider is that the most important part of a valentine is the eyes, so if you choose your subject carefully, you should be able to get a good shot of the eyes without any of them looking like cat-eyed out of a mask.
I don’t really recommend doing this. I was one of the first people to shoot a valentine photo using this method. The problem is that the eyes look too dark, so if you shoot them you have to be careful not to blur the rest of the face.
That’s the thing, that the eyes are important when it comes to the art of photojournalism. If you were to use a cheap camera, or worse yet a smartphone, then you would probably get the eyes out of focus and look like a cat. But since this is a time-lapse photo, the eyes will probably be right in focus.
Its a good technique for me too. The eyes are always in focus. And since you can edit the eyes out in post, its a good way to take photos without having to shoot the entire face.
I think the whole thing about this one is that it’s a great way to take a photo of something while still capturing it, because you don’t have to cut out the eyes (that would ruin the photo) and you can edit the face out later. Like a quick Photoshop editing session.
I’m not sure if I can be the only one who thinks that “backdrops” are a good idea. I’ll admit that I do occasionally get really excited about having “photographs” of people in my life, but I have a hard time believing that this would actually be a good thing.
I like backdrops a lot. I guess because they are a kind of reflection of our personality. So if youre a bit of a chameleon, a bit of a romantic, or a bit of a weirdo, then you can get away with putting a few simple photos of yourself in your backdrops.
Well, it turns out that the backdrops aren’t at all a good idea. I am not going to lie. I am a bit obsessed with backdrops. I have a stack of them on my bookshelf. Even though I rarely go out of my way to put them up, I have them all in my gallery and they are constantly getting put in new windows and then I lose them again. (I’m sure there are other reasons as well.
