Photography Unraveled


Ever had the experience where you want to rip your camera apart when you have a blurry picture of your active child? Ever wonder why your subjects sometimes look jaundice? And what the heck is RAW? There is so much to know about photography in order to get the images you want, even if you're a casual shooter taking snapshots of your family and friends, and unfortunately, there's also a lack of simple, easy to understand, and most importantly, FREE resources out there. If you'd like some answers to these, and many more questions, check out my other blog, Photography Unraveled. My goal with this blog is to use my experience from working in a camera store and shooting pictures (some as a hobby, some as a business) to help everyone from the "Soccer Mom" to the "Hobbyist" get the images they've always wanted. Check it out!

Step by Step Backflip

I don't get to do much sports photography........correction: I don't take the time to do much sports photography......but every once in a while I'll be at a sports event and snap a few pictures. I always come away from these shoots wishing I had a telephoto lens, but end up getting a few good wide angle images. Because my lens selection is limited, some of my favorite pictures to do are the step by step action shots. This process consists of holding the camera in one place, and snapping several back to back shots in rapid succession of an action sequence, and then piecing them together in Photoshop. I love seeing each and every step all laid out in one image.

This is a shot I took at the Ogden Pioneer Days Rodeo. They had the guys from OGIO come and do a little motocross at the very end. This was the final jump of the night, and they saved the best trick for last. If you have any questions about how I do this in Photoshop, let me know and I can give you the details.
