The post How to Create Landscape Photos That Tell Stories appeared first on Digital Photography School. It was authored by Anne McKinnell. When we consider photographs that tell stories, we immediately think of images that show people, often in a documentary or photojournalistic style. After all, people make for interesting stories, and telling stories through still photos of people can result in compelling art. But landscapes have stories, too. Now, telling stories through landscapes can be tougher than telling stories through, say, photos of a busy street. But it can be done. As a landscape ..read more

The post 5 Ways Patience Makes You a Better Photographer appeared first on Digital Photography School. It was authored by Andrew S. Gibson. On photography websites, you can generally find lots of articles on gear and photographic techniques, but far fewer articles on the mindset of the successful photographer. I’ve always believed that the key to understanding why people are successful lies in the way they think. For example, if you want to build a business that generates over a million dollars a year, then you would learn a great deal from talking with people who have already achieved that ..read more

How to Choose the Perfect Macro Lens

The post How to Choose the Perfect Macro Lens appeared first on Digital Photography School. It was authored by Jaymes Dempsey. When I first became interested in macro photography, I knew that my main lens at the time – a telephoto zoom – wasn’t going to get me close enough to capture the level of detail I was after. I also knew that camera manufacturers offered specialized macro lenses, which would allow me to magnify my subject and highlight all those beautiful details. In other words, I knew that I needed a macro lens. But when it came to choosing the best macro lens for the job, I was lost ..read more

The post dPS Bi-Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections in Nature appeared first on Digital Photography School. It was authored by Sime. We have dabbled with reflections before now, but for this fortnight’s challenge, you need to find a reflection in nature. (Here’s a whole bunch on reflections from our blog) A fresh puddle on a road (watch out for cars!) A still lake or river, or even the bay (like my photo of Swan Bay, below) add trees or clouds for an interesting element. I find more minimalist landscapes work well with reflections, but that’s just me Make sure you include the hashtags #d ..read more

How to Create a Vintage Look in Lightroom (A Hands-On Tutorial)
Digital Photography School
by Andrew S. Gibson
1w ago
The post How to Create a Vintage Look in Lightroom (A Hands-On Tutorial) appeared first on Digital Photography School. It was authored by Andrew S. Gibson. Photos with a vintage look evoke the appearance of faded prints captured decades ago. Vintage-effect images often include color casts introduced by film stock, and they (ideally) give the viewer a sense of nostalgia. But while vintage processing effects are popular – if you spend a few minutes scrolling through Instagram, you’re bound to hit upon a vintage image! – there’s not a specific vintage look that all photographers agree on. In thi ..read more

The post The Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED: A Practical Review appeared first on Digital Photography School. It was authored by Barry J Brady. This article was updated in May 2024 using original contributions from Barry J Brady. Invest in your lenses. Camera bodies will come and go, but a good lens can last a very long time. That was the advice I received when I started taking my photography seriously. Initially, it seemed a bit ridiculous. I bought a cheap 70-300mm lens and used it at the first wedding I photographed. I thought the images were fantastic until I bought a better lens a year later. I ..read more

The post How to Use Sports Mode: A Quick Guide appeared first on Digital Photography School. It was authored by Peter West Carey. Most beginner-friendly cameras – whether DSLRs, interchangeable-lens mirrorless models, or point-and-shoot cameras – include a variety of Scene modes, such as Sports mode, as well as Portrait mode, Landscape mode, Close-up mode, etc. These Scene modes are designed to help you take better photos without delving into more complex settings. And while Sports mode isn’t ideal for dedicated photographers looking to produce high-level sports photos, if you’re a newbie and ..read more

Digital Photography School

The post Shutter Speed and Landscape Photography: A Practical Guide appeared first on Digital Photography School. It was authored by Christian Hoiberg. In landscape photography, there are three fundamental settings to consider: the ISO, the aperture, and the shutter speed, known together as the exposure triangle. While all of these settings are equally important to understand to create technically correct images, I think that shutter speed is extra important for creating photos with impact. By carefully choosing your camera’s shutter speed, you can often make your image stand out fr ..read more
