The ability to be relaxed, comfortable, disciplined and natural in front of virtual strangers is a hard quality to find. Clients want kids to be real kids not seem like they were forced or coached by their parents.
The reason why this happens is because these numbers represent fractions of the diameter of the lens. For example F2 means that the entire diameter of the lens gets divided by 2. If we have a 50mm lens and we set F2 in the aperture settings, the opening of the lens will become 50/2 = 25mm. If now we set F4, the opening becomes 50mm/4=12.5mm. So setting a higher F number we obtained a smaller opening.
Getty bought Tony Stone Images and began to apply business principles to stock photography. It looked as though stock might finally start to be looked upon with a little more respect…then RF happened. And again, the emphasis shifted to how much material one could get in. In some cases photographers would sell their entire archives for a set price.
In the mid-20th century, the business consulting industry began using the phrase “rain making” to describe techniques sales people could use to make sales during “sales droughts.” Long before rap stars told the viewers of their music videos that “making it rain” meant throwing dollar bills at strippers, Rain Makers in all industries were out using proven techniques to drum up business and to seemingly make money appear from thin air.
Mike doesn’t consider himself a toronto commercial photography, he considers himself an artist who gains commission from a commercial industry. “I love what I do” Mike pronounces as the session draws near its end. Many hours have passed. The model is exhausted. The fashion team has already begun packing her gear to go.
Another piece of basic photography lighting equipment is the grid spot. Shaped a bit like a metal honeycomb that goes over the reflector, it keeps the light from spreading, making multiple columns of light close together. This creates a spot light. Larger grid spots are more efficient, but they also take up more space. They work well for background lighting, however. You’ll also want to look at light boxes. These are a simple frame holding open a five sided box (some are also round). They offer a lot of control, and can work well for fill lighting.
Because of stock I have had the opportunity to “hang with” a lion, a tiger, and an elephant…I’ve had the chance to shoot a baboon in my studio too. Animals, of course, are not the only “perks” I have been able to enjoy from shooting stock. I spent a week in one of the swankiest Penthouses in Buenos Aires, a magnificent “casa” in Mexico, …heck, I have even rented a disco (also in Buenos Aires) and had a crazy fun time shooting what in effect was a private disco party complete with a crowd of dancers, throbbing music, and smoke machines. Cool!
