Making Money with Your Photography with Jim Zuckerman

4-Day Program: $475April 3-5 2009
If you have ever imagined earning income from your photography, this is the seminar to attend. In this lecture-style workshop, Jim Zuckerman will share his 40 years of marketing experience to help get you started in making part-time or full-time income. Jim will discuss the lucrative field of stock photography and compare micro stock companies with traditional stock houses. He'll describe how conceptual photography plays a role in generating income, and will show you how to get published in magazines, calendars, note cards, posters, and jigsaw puzzles. Jim will present many examples of what sells and what doesn't sell. Important business practices such as model releases, pricing, websites, and tax write-offs will also be covered.
In last day of the seminar Jim will illustrate how Photoshop can significantly increase your income by explaining the techniques he used to transform photographs to make them much more marketable. This will be an eye-opening experience, and you'll learn how a pro thinks as he is producing images for sale.
Whether you shoot wildlife, nature, people, travel, pets or abstracts, you will learn that it is still possible to earn money from your images. The wealth of information presented is invaluable in giving you a direction to sell your work.

Ice...ice...

Seems like I am forever finding water in one of its many forms in front of may camera. I am planning a hike for later this year that will take me up a stream bed near my home. My hope is to capture some wonderful little snippets of countryside that are so plentiful in West Virginia yet often get over looked. For the mean time though I have fascinated my self with the ice that forms on our front porch. Here are three recent images. All three taken with a 50mm lens. The settings were roughly 1/250 of a second with f22. I took them after sundown as I wanted to remove all the background and just have the ice as the main focus. Let me know what you think.

---(3)---


I processed them all using LightRoom, nothing fancy just some contrast and brightness adjustments along with a color mask over the entire thing to pump in a little blue.

Zack Airas

I've been a fan of Zack's stuff ever since I landed on his seamless white tutorials. He is a great photographer and was recently featured over on Scott Kelby's blog. He was given full reign to blog about what he wanted...instead he posted this video. Wow! He hit a home run in my book. It all takes time be patient.

2nd Curtain Flash

DPS is on a role with me this week. They had a post today relating to second curtain flash settings. Along with a great visual representation of how it functions they also have posted a few images to illustrate it in action. The article on DPS was written by Jeffrey Kontur. You can find the article here http://digital-photography-school.com/an-explanation-of-2nd-curtain-sync-flash-or-slow-sync-flash and it is defiantly worth the time to read it.

A quick explanation would be that in normal flash operation the flash fires just a after the shutter opens. In second curtain flash the flash fires before the shutter closes. The result is that any motion is caught in frame before the flash fires and etches in the image. As I said this is a quick explanation but it get to the heart of the mater, go read Jeffrey's article for a more in depth explanation.

Just added...

www.jakegarn.com

Jake Garner a part-time photographer who specialise in what he calls whimsical fashion has decided to host three workshops. In Layton, UT. The three workshops will be titled:

  • Photographing People
  • Introduction to Retouching People
  • Advanced Retouching
These are sure to be wonderful events and full of great learning opportunities. You can attend each session for $135.00 per session or you Can pre-pay for all 3 for $300.00. If you live in the area or can make it over I am sure you will find these to be great events.

Black background....duh

I have shot a number of different things in the past and I love to create images that look different. I openly admit that I am learning flash techniques but today Chas Elliott over on the Digital Photo School wrote something that just made it click in my head. What clicked? Well to be honest the whole relationship to lighting and exposure. Here let me show you the statement from the article on DPS I read today:

"As you know, for a subject to be properly exposed you manipulate the shutter speed and aperture size until you are letting in just the right amount of light for a proper picture. Well what would happen if you had a subject that was so bright that in order to keep them properly exposed you had to close the shutter before the surroundings had time to burn their way into the photo. (Re-read that last sentence if necessary.) Wala!"

What Chas was explaining is simple and easy to understand and now that I get it it makes a blurry picture so much sharper. If you want to have that lovely dark background then amp up the light way over what you need. Run the aperture way down and the shutter speed up as far as you can and then play the light power until you get what you need.

Thanks for the explanation Chas that helps me a lot and I hope it helps others who read your article or my bit about it here.

Lighting on Location with Ira Block

4-Day Program: $975,includes model feesAugust 20-23, 2009
Day 1:AM: The day will start with a review of each participant's work and a discussion of lighting or lack of lighting in the images. We'll talk about what kind of lighting would have improved the images. PM: We'll discuss various types of lighting equipment such as clamps, reflectors, flashlights, boards, scrims, umbrellas and softboxes and illustrate the different effects. If there's time we'll go outside and experiment with a few techniques.
Day 2:AM: In the classroom, we'll cover the use of smaller flashes, as single units or multiple units, and the best ways of triggering them and setting up various lighting ratios. PM: We'll go on location with the small units. We'll break up into groups and work with small strobes, reflectors and scrims to obtain different lighting effects.
Day 3:AM: We will review the photos from the previous afternoon and discuss the different lighting techniques we used. There will be a discussion of larger studio strobe systems and then we'll prepare for the afternoon's shoot. PM: We will work with studio strobes on location with a model. Everyone will have the opportunity to plug into the bigger strobe system and experiment with the light. We will also have the smaller flash units available for those who would like to continue to experiment with these light sources. As it gets dark, we will do some photos using non-traditional techniques, like flashlights and auto headlights.
Day 4:AM: We will begin with the review of the work from the previous day and talk about the different types of lighting we worked with during the week. PM: This will be a last opportunity to shoot on location with the model, trying out really extreme techniques with the various lighting systems discussed in class. The use of gels and grids on the lights to highlight specific areas will also be discussed and demonstrated.
Participants should bring 3-5 images, 1400 pixels by 1020 pixels, on a jump drive or a CD. Bring at least one image that you think could be improved by better lighting. Please name your images with your last name followed by a number (smith01.jpg or smith02.tif).
Participants are required to shoot digitally, preferably with a DSLR. Bring your on-camera flash unit(s) with you if you have them. We will also have flash units available for your use during the class.

Spring in the gorge is the peak time of the year for lush greenery and spring wildflowers that only adds to the endless scenic vistas that abound here in the Pacific Northwest this time of year. There are over 108 recognized waterfalls in over 1700 square miles of the gorge. We will photograph just some fo these waterfalls ranging from 600 feet to about 250 feet in height. May is just about the end of the rainy season. These endless waterfalls and easily accessed streams along the gorge and adjacent trails are at peak with the snow melt and runoff from the nearby Cascade Mountains. The long rainy winter in the gorge also provides some of the most spectacular vegetation found anywhere in the world. Ferns, mosses, and spring wildflowers combined with the world renowned rainforests make the Columbia River Gorge a one of a kind experience. Join Jack to explore the natural wonders of the gorge and surrounding areas, as well as some hidden gems known to the “locals”. This will be a truly memorable experience.

CHARLES CRAMER studied piano for 25 years, receiving an M.A. degree from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. George Eastman, who also founded the Eastman Kodak Company, endowed this conservatory. This connection between music and photography can be seen in the lives of many photographers. Cramer gradually turned to full-time photography by 1980.
What initially started out as wet darkroom work transited into the digital era in 1997. Although far removed from darkroom-intensive dye transfer prints, the digital process gives him incredible control over the final image. These new advances allow Charles Cramer to realize his lyrical landscape images at their strongest and most compelling.
Cramer has taught photography for The Ansel Adams Gallery, and in 1987 was selected by the National Park Service to be artist-in-residence in Yosemite. National Geographic, the Sierra Club, and the Yosemite Association have published his work. His photographs are in numerous public and private collections in the United States and abroad.

Scenic Cape May is famous for its bird migrations, pristine beaches, Victorian architecture, fishing villages and much more. Join Joseph Rossbach and Ian Plant for an exciting time shooting from sunrise to sunset along the many beaches, fishing piers and in villages along the coast. We'll also get a chance to photograph the yearly Delaware Bay horseshoe crab spawn. Every evening around the new moon thousands of crabs come ashore to spawn. During a peak year it can be an amazing sight! The annual spawn also attracts thousands of migrating birds that feed upon crab eggs.

A few of Joe's clients include Blue Ridge Country Magazine, Digital Camera World, Photo Techniques Magazine, The Potomac News and Mountain Connections Magazine. Joe also spends a good deal of time speaking and lecturing at regional and local Camera Clubs along the East Coast. Joe brings a unique flare to his photography by using special techniques to create unique abstract images of common scenes and places. Joe has been leading photo tours and workshops for the past few years and also teaches photography classes at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna, Virginia. Joe lives with his wife Amber and their son Phoenix in Annapolis, Maryland. More of Joseph's work can be seen at www.josephrossbach.com.

Focus: Darkroom/Field
Level: Beginner to Intermediate

Wet plate collodion, one of the earliest photographic processes, has been experiencing a resurgence of interest in recent years. In this workshop, you will learn how to create wet plate positive images as well as wet plate negatives. Through a combination of discussions, field sessions and darkroom time, participants will learn how to use this historic process in their own photography.
This resurgence is partly due to the decreasing availability of traditional photographic materials and a reaction to the machine-made, mass-produced aspects of digital photography, but primarily because of the beauty and uniqueness of the images created. Many contemporary artists such as Sally Mann are using wet plate collodion in their work.
In this workshop we will primarily work on producing wet plate positive images: ambrotypes and tintypes. We will also spend some time creating wet plate negatives.
You will learn, preparation and safe handling of the chemicals used in the process, cutting and preparation of glass for ambrotypes and negatives, adapting standard film holders for wet plate use, reading light and exposure (light meters are useless with wet plate), pouring collodion, development techniques, options for fixing and varnishing and presentation.
As with most things hand-made, wet plate collodion is best learned by doing and there will be plenty of hands-on time in this workshop. Cameras ranging from 5x7 to 11x14 will be available, but you may also bring your own view camera. Wet plate holders will be available that will fit standard view camera backs. Be aware that chemicals will likely drip onto your camera and leave permanent stains. If you have an old, beater view camera, bring that and leave the Ebony at home.
KERIK KOUKLIS is a fine art photographer based in Placerville, California, where he lives with his wife and two daughters. He has been involved in making hand-made photographs since 1989. After 15 years dedicated to platinum and gum printing, Kerik turned his attention to the wet plate collodion process in 2004. He is one of a growing number of contemporary photographers pushing the collodion process in new directions. His collodion portraits and still lives are both beautiful and disturbing. A book of his collodion images is currently in the works.

I just finished adding a number of upcoming workshops in New York City. These workshops are being put on by the folks at Adorama. All of the ones I just added to the calendar were single day events, ranging from lectures on how to use the camera to outings with professional photographers. If you are interested in attending you should check out their page for all the details.

These look like some awsome opertunities and the prices are really great. For thoes of you who are from the West Virginia area and particulary from the Charleston and Huntington area don't forget that starting April 8th their will be direct daily flights from Yeager (CRW) to LaGuardia Airport (LGA). Flights will leave at 6:45am and return at 6:15pm. The prices are supposed to be under $400 for the round trip.

Think about it...fly up the day before the workshop, take in a little of the city or meet up with a friend. The next day attend the workshop and if you are done in time fly home that night otherwise spend a second night in NYC and then home. Not a bad little mini-vacation!

Till next time keep the shutters clicking and remember to make photos not take photos!

Audrey and Eugene

So what have I been up to...well to be honest I have been working on growing the business. On Jan 2nd I shot the wedding of Audrey and Eugene. It was a great time and they make a great couple. Have to love them for lots of reason but the best part is I will see them again in a few months when I shoot Tish's wedding. Here is the video from their wedding.



I'm still working on the opening sequence this one is OK but it was not quite what I was going for. I lack the skills of Scarlet Lillian or Moose Peterson but I will keep at it till I get it right.

Color Landscape Photography

http://www.anseladams.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=2267


May 6-10, 2009 (Yosemite National Park)
Using the landscape of beautiful Yosemite National Park, the Color Landscape Photography workshop will use a combination of field sessions, classroom discussions and print critiques to strengthen your skills in color photography. Whether you shoot film or digital, instructor Keith Walklet will help students to strengthen their work through instruction on topics including camera use, exposure, composition, lighting and much more.
DETAILS
Instructor: Keith Walklet
Dates: May 6-10, 2009

Focus: Field
Level: Beginner to Advanced Intermediate
Class Limit: 12

Scheduled to coincide with the peak runoff of the park's primary waterfalls, the height of Yosemite Valley's dogwood bloom, and a full moon, this five-day workshop is an excellent introduction to both Yosemite and photographic technique.
Keith S. Walklet's comprehensive curriculum is designed to benefit photographers of all levels, providing a solid technical and creative foundation for novices while fine-tuning the artistic vision of more experienced participants. With the spectacular landscape of Yosemite Valley for inspiration, the instructor will emphasize how to identify potential images, distill the composition to its essential elements and to move beyond basic documentation into the realm of personal expression.
Students should come prepared for full days as Keith packs a lot into his classes. His proven method of instruction combines brief indoor sessions that are designed to help students to refine their photographic vision, with extended, interactive field sessions. Conditions permitting, the class may also venture out for some moonlight sessions in hopes of capturing Yosemite's legendary “lunar rainbow.”
Keith uses both film and digital capture, and moves easily between the different mediums, having prepped and printed his own work digitally for over a decade. He takes care to address each step of the image-making process from conception to capture to output as a fine print.
KEITH S. WALKLET is a native of the East Coast and graduate of Roanoke College in Salem, Virginia. He traded a daily commute (from Connecticut to New York City) and most of his belongings, for a camera and motorcycle, with which he explored the continental U.S. and Alaska. Arriving in Yosemite National Park in 1984 “for one winter”, he set about documenting its grand scenes and subtle beauty first with 35mm, then 6x7 cm, and most recently, a 4x5 field camera.
The “one winter” became fourteen years. Living and working in the park provided an opportunity to thoroughly explore the Yosemite region with his camera. Over time he has demonstrated an uncanny ability to anticipate and capture the spectacular atmospheric phenomena definitive of the alpine landscape.
In addition to his Sierra Nevada and Yosemite work, Keith has traveled extensively to photograph the western United States. His fine prints are created using a revolutionary printing process that combines traditional photographic processes with computer technology.
Keith and his wife currently reside in Boise, Idaho, where he now focuses full-time on fine photography and written interpretation of the natural world under the auspices of QuietWorks Photography.

Carbon Printing Workshop

April 14-18, 2009 (Yosemite National Park)

DETAILS
Instructor: Vaughn Hutchins
Dates: April 14-18, 2009
Location: Yosemite National Park
Focus: Darkroom/Field
Level: Beginner to Advanced Intermediate
Class Limit: 10
Tuition: $800.00 (Material Fee Included)
Rooms have been set aside for workshop participants at Yosemite Lodge in Yosemite Valley. A form will be emailed to you upon registration that will allow you to reserve one of these rooms.

In 1864, Sir Joseph Swan patented the carbon printing process and it quickly became one of the primary fine art photographic processes of the time. In the Carbon Printing Workshop, instructor Vaughn Hutchins will lead you in creating prints with this highly detailed, elegant and very permanent process using the single transfer method. The goal of this workshop is to give you the information and experience you need to turn carbon printing into your own personalized process and mode of expression.
Carbon printing is a very flexible process. Participants will start out by making prints using carbon tissue pre-made by the instructor, but will quickly move to making their own custom carbon tissue which best matches their negatives and images. The carbon tissues will be transferred onto inkjet paper and fixed-out fiber base photo paper (Vaughn�s paper of choice), then explore other final support material such as watercolor papers.
For this workshop, participants will need to bring negatives to print with. Carbon printing is a contact printing process -- the size of your negative will be the size of your print. For learning and logistical reasons, please keep the negatives to 8x10 or smaller. High contrast negatives work best for this process, especially for creating prints that have a raised relief. Digital negatives can also work well. For those without large format or digital negatives, film will be supplied to work with.
During the workshop, participants will also have the opportunity to photograph in Yosemite Valley during instructor led field sessions and be able to process the film exposed that day specifically for carbon printing.
For participants with out a large format camera who wish to experiment with using one, two 5x7 view cameras will be available for use during the field sessions.
VAUGHN HUTCHINS has been photographing for the past 25 years. In 1981, he graduated with a B.S. degree in Natural Resources Management from Humboldt State University, and effectively a minor in darkroom technique.
Beginning in 1991, and to the present time, Vaughn works for the Art Department of Humboldt State University in charge of the operation and maintenance of the university darkroom. While he has no official teaching duties, a good amount of his time is spent one-on-one with students, helping them with all facets of photography. He has taught for several photographic workshop programs, and regularly conducts carbon printing and platinum printing workshops for HSU students. During the summers, he teaches a two-week photo class to high school students for the HSU Art Academy.
Vaughn works primarily with the carbon printing process, a process from the first days of photography. Carbon printing is a labor-intensive, hand-made process, which yields a very beautiful, full-range print that has a raised relief surface. The process is relatively simple, but its flexibility allows Vaughn to best express the light he finds under the Redwoods and in Yosemite Valley.

Instructor: Jim Clark

Tuition: $625

Spring on the fabled Eastern Shore of Virginia arrives with an abundance of wading birds, shorebirds, and other coastal wildlife. In addition to the wildlife of Chincoteague, we’ll also explore the wild coastal landscapes of Assateague Island National Seashore. We’ll welcome stunning sunrises, roam the beach for shorebirds and close-up opportunities of seashells and other macro subjects, and maybe even photograph a pelican or two. Along the auto tour route and hiking trails on the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, we’ll photograph muskrats, frogs, and a host of birds, such as herons, egrets, and songbirds. Along the tidal channels we’ll search for river otters. In the refuge’s woodlands, we’ll photograph abstract patterns of pine cones and forest ground cover and with a little bit of patience, we’ll have opportunities to photograph the rare and endangered Delmarva fox squirrel. Less we forget, we’ll be able to photograph the fabled Chincoteague ponies, too. We’ll also explore the village of Chincoteague with its boat harbor, Main Street, and anything else we discover.
