June Internet Roundup
I can't possibly be expected to write ALL of the best articles ALL of the time. Occasionally, I need to reference other brilliant websites who create other brilliant material. This is the first in a new series of posts I'm calling Internet Roundup. These are my favorite articles from last month that are photo related. I hope you enjoy.
Our first article comes to us from a wonderful website called petapixel.com and it gives you a checklist for retouching photos. This is extremely helpful because retouching photos is an extremely detail oriented thing. Forgetting to do one thing or doing one thing out of order can cause an enormous loss of time and work. Check this out!
I hope you guys understand that the gear doesn't matter and it's the photographer that MAKES the picture. This video is about just that. Watch and enjoy!
Exposure, composition, post-processing, and printing. The four essential elements of photography. It's fair to say that getting any one of them wrong can ruin you photo. This article is all about the second one. I found it very interesting. Check it out!
Beauty photography very focused on post-processing. Smoothing skin, perfecting makeup, removing blemishes, correcting fly-away hairs, etc. This video is entirely about post-processing a beauty shot from start to finish. This should also help you understand that those perfect shots of your favorite celebrity might not be as authentic as they seem.
Converting images is a continuing issue for photographers. It's something that isn't sexy but it's necessary for posting your images to the web, sending them via email, uploading them to the cloud, etc. This is about a website that makes converting your images easier.
Last but not least is a review of the Peak Designs Everyday Backpack. I probably won't ever buy this product, not because it's bad, just because it's not something I have an interest in. I do own several Peak Designs products and I genuinely like them a lot. So this is a review of one of their backpacks that I thought you might enjoy. Check it out!
