Photography Tips: The Best All Purpose Lens

If you could only have one lens for the rest of your life which lens would you choose?  It would have to be a lens that could handle a variety of different types of photography.  For me that would mean a lens that could handle macro, nature, and model photography. These three very different types of photography require shooting at a variety of distances from the subject.  That means a fixed lens would not be able to handle the work. A zoom lens narrows the field of available lens dramatically.  We can only have one lens in this discussion so what length of zoom would we want? I argue Nikon’s 28 – 300 mm is the most useful of all lens and if I could ...

I Know It’s Painful, But Read The Camera’s Manual

Reading a camera’s operating manual is about as much fun as reading the legal mumbo jumbo we are forced to read when signing up or buying anything today. This type of reading is guaranteed to put a person to sleep in a matter of minutes. So far I have never read the legal mumbo jumbo and everything seems to be going well. Dudes in black suits could arrive at my doorstep any minute! However there is no way to get out of reading your camera’s manual. Whenever a new camera is purchased I recommend sitting down, with the camera and manual and going through every button and function until you fully understand the purpose of the button or function. I recommend you do this before ...

Always Return Your Camera To Neutral After A Shoot!

  Sometimes irony can be as cruel as a mean, stepmother’s heart! For the last couple of weeks I have been thinking about blogging on the topic of setting the camera back to neutral after every shoot. So what do I do? Of course make exactly this mistake even though the topic is forefront in my noggin. My last photo shoot was an early sunrise, calm lake reflection affair. The photo below is an example from this shoot. Customized, fine art prints for sale! Click HERE to find out how to purchase your made-to-order photography print!  To achieve this shot I am using long exposure, mirror up, 5 second delay, manual focus, and a neutral density filter. I also had my exposure composition all jacked up because ...

Plastic Bags! Don’t Leave Home Without One!

Something as simple as a plastic bag can make or break a photo shoot! I am talking just the simple, free bags given with groceries and many other purchases.  A bag is easy to put in the back pocket, weighs next to nothing, and has a multitude of uses.     Let’s examine the photo below.  I just happened to have a plastic bag in my back pocket, which was wonderful, because I spent 2 hours under the Sydney Harbor Bridge in Sydney, Australia waiting out a rainstorm.  I used the bag to sit on a damp piece of concrete keeping my bum nice and dry. It is not fun to have a wet bum!  Especially since I could see a nice cozy pub from ...

Why Knee Pads Are The Photographer’s Best Friend

When I am on the hunt for a cool shot I am always thinking about how I can present a look that hasn’t been captured one trillion times! Generally speaking any standing view is what we are used to seeing. For example, how many bloody looking down at a flower shots have you seen? Looking down at flowers is how we normally view them. So if I am going to make a flower shot interesting I have to get creative and present a new perspective. Getting low provides such a perspective. We normally don’t look at flowers from below. So to get below a flower we have to get on our knees. Trust me the ground under a flower is not going to me marshmallowy ...

6 Reasons Why Photography Is As Much Fun As A Person Can Have With Their Pants On!

After last week’s whiney blog about how much photography sucks donkey balls, I need to explain why I go through all those horrors and play the photography game! First off photography forces me to explore new places! I love getting in the car, on mass transit, or in an airplane for a destination I have found on a map that I have never explored! The photo below was taken at The Singapore Botanical Garden. Before I became a photographer, a botanical garden would not be on my list of places to visit. As a photographer, a botanical garden offers an endless variety of beautiful things to click! Photography offers a hobby/career that a person will never master. Well at least I never will, but I am ...

6 Reasons Photography Sucks Donkey Balls!

Lets be honest. There are some really sucky things about photography! First off photography is silly expensive. A person has to be Oprah rich to get some shots. For example those massive, howitzer cannon lenses you see on the sidelines of NFL football games can cost $20,000. This photograph below is captured with middle of the road equipment and even at that I invested about $3,000 to get the shot! Which leads to my second gripe! To get the photo above I had to get up before sunrise and be in position as the sun was poking over the Sapphire Mountains of Montana. The reason for this is because some sick bugger decided that one of the best times for lighting would be in the ...

Long Exposure Photography

Long exposure photography is a lot of fun and a great way to achieve some amazing photos. You can make rushing, mountain stream water look soft and milky, make a lake look perfectly flat, and ocean waves look like surreal fog. Long exposure photography is also a lot of fun at night. You can create streaking automobile lights, star trails, or cool light patterns from lights shimmering off of bodies of water. Equipment Needed Camera You will need a camera that will let you adjust your shutter speed to control the amount of light that enters the camera. Basically you will need a DSLR camera. Neutral Density Filter Neutral Density (ND) filters are a must for long exposure photography. ND filters come in a variety ...

@theuncensoredstripper– Behind the Scenes (Part 2)

Most of these images are for sale at titsandwit.com   Additional original writing by The Uncensored Stripper   Follow at @theuncensoredstripper on Instragram The Bare Elegance; my LA home club: {12} This is where it all started: the writing. I wrote most of the first book, Anything But a Wasted Life,             in this room. This was one of my co-workers. I shot her on a Sunday morning. The only day the club is closed for business. This was the first strip club I ever worked at with a kitchen. It took time to get used to men eating (sometimes while sitting at the stage!), but the food was surprisingly good. Many a meal over my ten years at The ...
