Safety first when making portraits during the pandemic. Here's my story...
https://www.kevinamesphotography.com/executive-portrait-during-covid-19/

Like others in this time of the Coronavirus pandemic, I am concerned with taking care of those around me. When it comes to providing a safe environment for creating photographs of people, cleanliness, masks and as much physical distancing as possible are my main concerns.

In this article, I'm going to share with you how I configured my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K camera using a cage, a monitor and a few other things. In the article I will refer to is as the BMPCC 4K. My final configuration So this is how it looks when it's all assembled. The only thing missing is a microphone and I tend to use Lavalier's or a microphone on a boom when I'm doing sound and so would have a connection to the BMPCC 4K. [ 667 more words ]

Color concepts in still life photography — what's in? | Photofocus

In colors ... In my part of the world (Australia) everywhere I go in stores, online, in magazines, etc., the IN color for home decorating is blue and cream (or off white). Yellow is also making a bold statement. Considering it is winter here, these seem almost summerlike colors, perhaps influenced by warmer climates? Other areas online I find that berry colors seem to in style. [ 453 more words ]
