  • How to describe a place (I’m mainly referring to a country) in pictures?

    Basically I’m a photographer, and when I post my photos for themes I’m doing, I post 9 at a time.

    Basically I’m a photographer, and when I post my photos for themes I’m doing, I post 9 at a time. If a certain country was a theme for example, Brazil, how would I go about describing the country with 9 photos. Also, I would like to have each photo different (for example, I wouldn’t want to do two pictures of Brazilian cuisine) but, if necessary, I will. So far, for two photos, I would do an example of their cuisine, and a popular tourist destination, just to give you an idea. Thank you in advance.

She asked me how much I’m going to charge, I usually do these types of things for free so I don’t know how much to charge. What’s avaerage rate per hour for an amateur to charge for this sort of thing? I feel like I should charge a little high because I have to do some editing and that usually takes a while. I need actual number people. Thanks so much.

  • Is Filtering my instagram photos a bad or good thing?

    Best answer: What I like:
    They're not over processed.
    You show you know how to control the depth of field.
    You show you know how to properly expose a scene.
    You got down to eye level when photographing many of the animals. Avoid shooting down on your subject unless you want to invoke a feeling of weakness such as if the animal was injured in a cage.


    What I don't like:
    1. Uninteresting lighting in all but a few images. Avoid mid-day sun unless the harsh lighting adds something special to your images or helps tells the story.
    2. Uninteresting subjects with the exception of the Rolex clock which looks like it was taken by a different photographer when compared with the rest of the images. Seven billion people take photos of their cats, so if you're going to do it, it has to be one heck of an image with exceptional lighting with an exceptional moment. Otherwise it's just another of the billion upon billion of cat photos that already litter the internet.

    3. Work on your composition, especially with landscapes. When making a landscape, it's customary to have an interesting foreground element, an interesting element in the middle, and an interesting element in the background. None of your landscape images follow this rule. Think about juxtaposition of the various elements within your compositions. For example, take a look at the harbor image with the sign "Public Market." The word "Market" was juxtaposed over the hills in the background making it difficult to read the word.

    4. Think about why you're taking the photo and then remove everything that does not support that reasoning. What if you can't remove something such as a car? Well, then you have two options: don't take the image because the composition is a failure, or remove it in post.

    5. Don't partially crop items. Image #3 of the bikes, you cropped off a part of the wheel. In image #4, you cropped off a bit of the rear of a car. In photography, if you do things a little bit of the way, it looks like an accident; as if you didn't see/notice that you cropped off a bit of the tire or bumper.

    6. Pay attention to your backgrounds and avoid bright backgrounds. In the first duck image, there's a glaring blob of white in the upper left corner. The viewer's eye wants to go to the brightest part of an image, and in this case it's an out-of-focus, super-bright, section of the image that adds nothing to the story.

    7. You need to have a strong and dominate subject. Just like when writing an sentence, you must have a strong subject in your photos. The image of the Ferris wheel is an image where the viewer is left wondering just what exactly are they supposed to be looking at.

    8. Avoid solid blacks and blown-out highlights without detail. Sometimes one may see a famous photographer break this rule, but for now as a beginner, your goal is to have details in your shadows and highlights. The exception is super-bright highlights such as the sun where it's normal to have the highlights blown out. But in your sunset shot with the super-black hill, that's a mistake in my opinion.

    Overall not bad for a beginning photo student.

  • Photographers: What cameras do you recommend?

    I like to do a lot of landscape photography. But I also want to incorporate some night time shots. So I definitely want a camera that does well in the dark. I’m not extremely experienced with cameras and photography, but I do have some experience and practice. What do you recommend that’s under $1000?
