Category Archives: Learn About Photography
Time to change it up. Check out the trailer of the big change I’m making here at ShawnKent.net. No more boring, plain videos. We’re going live and we’re going off script. We’re going to show you something every episode about photography, Photoshop or Lightroom. Whatever I’m into at the moment. I’ve done videos before, but they were never really me….I gotta be me. So see you next episode. I’ll post about it soon!
Well, my first ever webinar is complete. See the video above. Kind of a rocky start, with audio problems, but lots of good info in this video.
It is essential that developing photographers have a firm understanding on compositional principles. This is the first in a series of articles where we will be talking about the rules of composition. Starting with the very basics and working up to the more complex. This first tutorial will talk about the classic rule of thirds composition rule.
Now this is the part of the tutorial where we say the obligatory “there are no rules in photography”.
I hate that statement. Of course there are rules! Rules are broken all the time, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t valid rules, or that you should ignore them. They exist for a reason and this article will dissect those reasons.
As well this is not a tutorial written only for beginners. I meet many pro photographers who only know the very basic concepts of the rule of thirds. For that reason I have tried to go as in depth as possible to dissect the principle.
Subtle adjustment of tone and detail are the secret to Black and White Photography.
Join me June 8th to learn the steps behind my process for going from colour images to detailed and rich black and white images.
I will be covering the specific tricks and techniques I use when shooting, the importance of visualizing zones, and then processing that image in post using Lightroom software to get the desired effect.
I will also be briefly showing the use of Nik SilverFX Pro to add that last bit of polish to my images.
