Pre-Shoot Checklist Infographic

PreShoot Checklist Infographic
PreShoot Checklist Infographic

Checklists are always handy to have and help to limit the reams of notes we use to try to remember everything.

This infographic provides an easy to read reference to help you remember:

  • Your gear needs
  • Things to remember regarding Logistics and Location, and
  • Personal things to remember. (If you have ever been to a newborn shoot where little Johnny just couldn’t hold it in, you will be grateful for these reminders)

I don’t think any of us has ever gone to a shoot and didn’t end up shaking our heads in disbelief about what we have forgotten. We hope that this infographic will help limit these times.

Review: The Peregrine Glove

The Peregrine GloveI was recently emailed about an interesting concept that may have definite applications to the work I do. Curious, I followed the link and gazed at the screen.

The Power of Black and White - In Adobe Lightroom & Beyond

 

The Power of Black and White – In Adobe Lightroom & Beyond by Piet Van den Eynde (Craft and Vision, Vancouver, Canada) is an e-book that, at $5.00 to download, is an incredible value. It is a  100 page Masterclass course that should be on every photographer’s “bookshelf”.

Post processing black and white images has been the subject of countless discussions, and it would be easy to assume this e-book is simply recycling. In this case, that assumption is wrong.  Van den Eynde brings a fresh, new approach in both technique and presentation.
