Shooting Tips: Night Carnivals and Fairs

Grab your camera. Let's go to the fair! We received a few questions about the night photo in the previous blog entitled Gathering Photo Assets, so I thought it would be a good time to talk about carnivals and night photography in general. There are few places that have the color and action of a carnival or boardwalk.

For the house project, you’ll go to the lumberyard, the hardware store, the garden supply store and many other places to get objects that seem unrelated until they’re assembled. In this blog we’ll show you how that same approach works well for creating individual photos and photo albums. In the following photo Lauren and Katie are sitting in a stationary bumper car at a county fair. I yelled, “Look like you...

Photoflex Featured Pros- September 2011

We are kicking off September by honoring another globetrotting pro who now focuses his efforts on education- Scott Stulberg. Scott is most well known for his killer travel photography and many of his images are available as stock photos. His work has been used by Microsoft, Newsweek, and The New York Times, as well as for greeting cards, calendars, and book covers. If it's an amazing stock image, it is likely Scott's. We recently talked with Scott about his more recent photographic endeavors and what he is doing to improve himself and those around him. Photoflex: Scott, how...
