Now, I know for many of you, school is out for the summer, but here at The Photo Asylum, the learning process never stops. Never...
And so, I'll soon be starting a series of blog posts under the common heading of Photo Asylum 101.
The subject matter of these posts will vary widely. Any and all things relating to photography including lighting, shooting, pre and post-production, composition, studio and location gear, presentation, you name it.
Also, various aspects of the fashion business, specifically as they relate to organizing and producing fashion shoots. Styling, casting, location scouting, video, etc.
Sometimes these posts will start with a particular criticism. Something I see being done wrong or poorly. The emphasis will never be on the negativity of the mistakes or the bad habits, but rather my suggestions for perhaps ways of doing things a bit better. Persuade rather than admonish.
Other times these will just be straight-forward, short tutorials, simply explaining a rule, technique, or way I've learned to do something that I want to pass along. Again, a suggestion. Just something for you to consider.
My intention will always be to improve your way of working, and as with most things in life, you are free to embrace or ignore my advice.
So, get ready. There will be a test at the end of the semester...
