You may have wondered what's the difference between the Canon 580EX II speedlight and the YN 568EX II speedlight by Yongnuo. The short answer is not as much [difference] as you might think. The Canon speedlight include a few options that truly makes it more versatile for remote locations, like the ability to add an external battery pack.
First, I'll say this, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 is crazy sharp for a non-L lens.
Often when someone thinks of a model the first thing that comes to mind is a New York runway model. Truth is, models come in all shapes and sizes. High fashion firms out of New York City are not the only ones who seek model talent.
Next time you have your picture taken strike a pose. If you're a woman, one of the most flattering and sexy poses is to turn your body 45 degrees from the camera. Next place your weight on the leg farthest from the camera and turn your other foot toward the camera. Kick your hip out as far as you can.
Do you think about your pose when someone takes your picture?
I once read that professional photographers spend about 20% of their time shooting and 80% editing pictures. When I got back into photography, it was because I loved shooting. I still love shooting. When I am making pictures I feel as if I'm in my element. I could shoot for days. But after all that shooting comes post production.
How do you feel about have your picture made when you are out in public?
Festivals, carnivals and parties are great places to capture great candid pictures of people. I have found these venues to be excellent opportunities to practice a mixture of portraiture and street photography.
We all remember standing in front of a camera with someone saying, "Say Cheez". I have fond memories of those days. You would think my interest in photography would have started there, but it didn't. It starting when I was in college, during the film days. I purchased a Pentax K1000 SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera in 1983 while taking a photography class at North Carolina Central University.
