With the advent of digital imaging and the corresponding ease in cranking out pictures, photography is everywhere. Because of this, it&#8217;s getting harder and harder to create landscape images that are different and not the same old stereotypical stuff that everyone else is shooting.</p> <div id="attachment_68205" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/memoriesbymike/8325903022/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-68205" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-68205 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/take-better-landscape-photos-with-low-camera-angles.jpg" alt="camera low angles and nature photography" width="570" height="322" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-68205" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/memoriesbymike/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Mike Boening Photography</a>; ISO 100, f/22.0.</p></div> <p>Many photographers go to great lengths to put their own creative stamp on their work, using such things as camera filters or complex computer editing techniques to gain a unique style. These are all well and good, but it&#8217;s often amazing how much difference there can be in a photograph by getting a different perspective with a lower camera angle.</p> <p>Humans are very much creatures of habit. If we have a camera in our hands and we see a pleasing scene, we raise the camera to our eye, compose, and shoot. If we&#8217;re using a tripod, we extend the legs to eye level and shoot the picture. Well it&#8217;s time to break the old habits.</p> <p>The next time you&#8217;re out doing landscape photography, try simply dropping to one knee in order to incorporate, and put more emphasis on, interesting foreground elements. If you&#8217;re using a tripod, try <em>not</em> extending the legs in order to keep the camera closer to the ground. You might be surprised at the difference this simple little step will make.</p> <div id="attachment_68207" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/billyrichards/17290959401/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-68207" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-68207 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/low-angle-landscape-photography.jpg" alt="landscapes photography with low angles" width="570" height="379" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-68207" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/billyrichards/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Bill Richards</a>; ISO 100, f/18.0, 1.6-second exposure.</p></div> <p>Now that you&#8217;re getting the idea, take it a step further and try some shots lying flat on the ground. Now you&#8217;re getting some perspectives that are different than the majority of the casual snapshot shooters out there. Things like rocks, flowers, logs, and even blades of grass are examples of objects that can be incorporated into the image to make it more interesting. Obviously the scene and the foreground elements will dictate how low to go. Experiment and have fun. That&#8217;s the whole idea, isn&#8217;t it?</p> <p>As you incorporate more foreground elements into a scene by using this technique, depth of field, also known as depth of focus, will become an issue. It can be difficult to keep both nearby objects and the distant landscape in focus. Use as small an aperture as possible. This increases depth of field. You can try using a wider angle lens which also increases the appearance of a wider focus area.</p> <p>If these aren&#8217;t sufficient, try moving back a little from your foreground elements which will make it easier to keep them in focus. Utilize the depth of field preview button, if your camera has one, to see how much of your scene will be in focus. If there&#8217;s any doubt, make sure that the closest objects are sharply focused. The human eye can often accept distant objects that are a little out of focus but blurry foreground elements will nearly always spoil the scene.</p> <div id="attachment_68208" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/sbetts/4718689349/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-68208" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-68208 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/how-to-use-a-low-camera-angle-in-landscape-photos.jpg" alt="landscape tips and using low angles" width="570" height="379" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-68208" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/sbetts/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Steve Betts</a>; ISO 100, f/14.0, 1/160-second exposure.</p></div> <p>The point is, you don&#8217;t need exotic gear, nor do you need to learn complex post-processing techniques to take digital landscape photographs that have a unique perspective.

Interestingly, it&#8217;s considered to be one of the oldest still inhabited settlements in Europe. That&#8217;s why this UNESCO heritage site attracts a lot of tourists every year. One of the beauties of this place has to be the sixteenth-century Alpine houses and alleyways that house cafes and shops today. Photographer <a href="https://www.instagram.com/danieljschwarz/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Daniel J.

The sunlit leaves in the foreground perfectly hug the lake and the settlement in the mid-ground. He&#8217;s done an excellent job by choosing to include the church in his composition. It gives such a medieval vibe to the image. And it just doesn&#8217;t end there. Like the strong foreground, the background in the image is equally strong. The mountain in the background hints at how beautiful this place can really be when visited in person.</p> <p>Even the way Schwarz has processed the image is interesting. While the leaves in the foreground give a warm and sunny vibe, thanks to the yellow tones, the background speaks otherwise. This difference in tonalities gives an overall contrasting feeling.</p> <p>Have you had the opportunity to visit this historic settlement?</p> <br/> <p>Go to full article: <a href="https://www.picturecorrect.com/news/photo-historic-hallstatt/">Interesting Photo of the Day: Historic Hallstatt</a> <br/> <br/> What are your thoughts on this article?

Each of these options has a benefit and a trade off of its own. High ISO introduces more noise in the image, whereas a slower shutter speed causes motion blur to show up. It&#8217;s up to you to make the decision for your photo, depending on the situation. Photographer Mark Wallace from <a href="https://adorama.evyy.net/c/64082/51926/1036" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Adorama </a>takes up a challenge to evaluate the choices in the following video:</p> <p><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ORbdTlin_Kw?rel=0&amp;showinfo=0&amp;modestbranding=0&amp;hd=1&amp;iv_load_policy=3" width="580" height="326" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Wallace starts by setting up his Leica M10 with a 28mm lens set at f/8, ISO 100, and 16 seconds. The result is a very pleasing, clean image with beautiful motion blur of the water.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-74351" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/low-iso-and-slow-shutter-image.jpg" alt="low iso and slow shutter image" width="570" height="353" /></p> <p>Next, he bumps up the ISO to 3200, which changes the shutter speed to 1/2 second. The result? The image looks noisy when viewed at 100 percent, and the water looked better when it was blurry.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-74352" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/high-iso-fast-shutter-speed.jpg" alt="high iso and fast shutter speed image" width="570" height="352" /></p> <div id="attachment_74355" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-74355" loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-74355" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/noise-with-high-iso.jpg" alt="noise due to high iso" width="570" height="320" /><p id="caption-attachment-74355" class="wp-caption-text">The image shows considerable noise when zoomed at 100 percent.</p></div> <p>To conclude, if the subject isn&#8217;t moving, it&#8217;s a better option to shoot at a slower shutter speed and a low ISO.</p> <p>In cases when it is essential to freeze motion in a low light condition, using a low ISO and a slow shutter speed won&#8217;t cut it. You will end up getting a messy image full of motion blur. It thus becomes essential to bump the ISO up in order to have a decent shutter speed. For demonstration, Wallace sets his camera to ISO 6400 at f/2, which lands him up to a shutter speed of 1/60 second for the following image:</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-74353" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/handheld-shot-at-high-iso.jpg" alt="handheld shot at high iso" width="570" height="373" /></p> <p>Here is another example where he uses a relatively high ISO:</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-74354" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/high-iso-image.jpg" alt="high iso image" width="570" height="379" /></p> <p>So what did we learn?</p> <blockquote><p>&#8220;We learned that if we are shooting something that is not moving, like a building or a mountain or maybe even the ocean, and the camera is on a tripod, we can use a very low ISO value and then let that shutter hang for 20&#8211;30 seconds or even a few minutes. But for shooting something handheld or walking around in low-light, and we don&#8217;t have a flash. . .we need to open up our aperture to let in a lot of light and boost the ISO.&#8221;</p></blockquote> <p>But then, there is the question of how high you can go with your ISO. Newer generations of cameras are capable of delivering acceptable images even at higher ISOs. Also, be aware that full frame cameras can handle higher ISOs better than APSC or Micro 4/3 cameras. Get to know your camera and see how much can you &#8220;exploit&#8221; it by cranking up the ISO and evaluating the results.</p> <br/> <p>Go to full article: <a href="https://www.picturecorrect.com/tips/how-to-choose-between-high-iso-and-slow-shutter-speed/">How to Choose Between High ISO and Slow Shutter Speed</a> <br/> <br/> What are your thoughts on this article?

Isaac Lowe-Anker, younger brother of photographer Max Lowe graduated from Western Washington University in Bellingham last year in graphic design and illustration. Like a whole generation of young adults last year, he graduated alone in his apartment under strict lockdown.</p> <p>In this video, Max takes Isaac back to Bellingham, before celebrating his graduation with a road trip out into the San Juan Islands and across to the Olympic Peninsula. Along the way, Isaac explores his feelings about entering the adult world during the pandemic, and sketches his way through the beautiful landscapes of the Pacific Northwest.</p> <p>Throughout the trip, Max captured both their journey and Isaac's artwork with a range of Sony cameras and lenses.</p> <p>Watch the full video above, and see below for a look behind the scenes at the making of this production, including a gallery of exclusive images from the shoot.</p> <h3>Behind-the-scenes of 'Return to Western'</h3> <div class="video"><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="326" id="videoFrame" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/vdiNZQtiKkk?rel=0&amp;autohide=1&amp;wmode=transparent&amp;enablejsapi=1" width="580"></iframe></div> <h3>Sample gallery</h3> <div> <div><div id="embeddedSampleGallery_3421301273" class="sampleGalleryImageViewerContainer" style="height: 521px"></div><script type="text/javascript">$(document).ready(function() { SampleGalleryV2({"containerId":"embeddedSampleGallery_3421301273","galleryId":"3421301273","isEmbeddedWidget":true,"selectedImageIndex":0,"isMobile":false}) });</script></div> </div> <div><hr> <p>This is sponsored content, created with the support of Amazon and Sony. <a href="/sponsored" rel="noopener" target="_blank">What does this mean?</a></p> </div> Samsung unveils 50MP ISOCELL GN2 smartphone sensor with Dual Pixel Pro, Smart ISO Pro and more https://www.dpreview.com/news/3732090516/samsung-unveils-50mp-isocell-gn2-smartphone-sensor-dual-pixel-pro-smart-iso-pro-and-more News: Digital Photography Review (dpreview.com) urn:uuid:3be38bf6-b776-317e-24a5-d409103de70a Wed, 24 Feb 2021 16:32:00 +0000 <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="images noCaptions singleNoBorder center" data-image-height="null" data-image-width="590"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="image" style="width: 590px;"><img border="0" data-aspect-ratio="4x3" data-thumbnail-height="0" data-thumbnail-width="590" height="442" src="https://2.img-dpreview.com/files/p/E~TC4x3S590x0~articles/3732090516/GN2_2.jpeg" width="590" data-filename="GN2_2.jpeg"></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>Samsung has <a href="https://news.samsung.com/global/samsung-introduces-1-4μm-50mp-isocell-gn2-with-faster-and-more-true-to-life-auto-focusing" rel="noopener" target="_blank">announced</a> the details of the ISOCELL GN2, its second-generation 50MP smartphone image sensor that features 1.4μm pixels, improved autofocus capabilities, better HDR capture and more.</p> <p>The 1/1.12-inch GN2 slightly increases the pixel size to 1.4μm, up from 1.2μm in its <a href="/news/8188876144/samsung-isocell-gn1-sensor-tetracell-tech-and-phase-detection-on-all-active-pixels">GN1 predecessor</a>. For low-light scenes, the sensor can use four-pixel-binning that should simulate the light-sensitivity of 2.8μm pixels, albeit at the cost of resolution. If you’re looking for higher resolution, the GN2 has a new 100MP mode that uses an on-chip re-mosaic algorithm that combines three 50MP frames in red, green and blue to create a single upscaled 100MP image.</p> <div class="video"><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="326" id="videoFrame" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/8KILAVjM8lY?rel=0&amp;autohide=1&amp;wmode=transparent&amp;enablejsapi=1" width="580"></iframe></div> <p>One of the biggest improvements in the GN2 should be its autofocus performance. The original ISOCELL GN1 used Samsung’s Dual Pixel autofocus technology. Similar to <a href="https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/learn/education/topics/article/2018/July/Intro-to-Dual-Pixel-Autofocus-(DPAF)/Intro-to-Dual-Pixel-Autofocus-(DPAF)">Canon’s Dual Pixel Autofocus</a> (DPAF) technology, Samsung’s version split each pixel vertically into two photodiodes, effectively turning every pixel on the sensor into a phase-detection autofocus point.</p> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="images noCrop singleNoBorder center" data-image-height="null" data-image-width="590"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="image" style="width: 590px;"><a href="https://www.dpreview.com/files/p/articles/3732090516/GN2_3.jpeg" target="article-ef7d8ab881bc4120b4d14f02f9b188a7"><img border="0" data-thumbnail-height="0" data-thumbnail-width="590" height="331" src="https://1.img-dpreview.com/files/p/E~TS590x0~articles/3732090516/GN2_3.jpeg" width="590" data-filename="GN2_3.jpeg"></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="caption" style="width: 590px;">An illustration showing the diagonally-split green pixels used in the ISOCELL GN2. Click to enlarge.</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>Now, in the GN2, Samsung is taking the technology a step further with Dual Pixel Pro. Instead of each pixel being split vertically, Samsung has incorporated green pixels that are split diagonally. Doing this means the green pixels now have a degree of sensitivity to vertical displacement in addition to horizontal displacement, which should effectively turn the green pixels into little cross-type autofocus sensors. While not exactly the same, it should offer similar functionality to the quad-pixel autofocus technology OmniVision <a href="/news/4524618894/omnivision-50mp-ov50a-smartphone-sensor-promises-dslr-level-autofocus-performance">showed off in its new OV50A sensor</a>.</p> <div class="video"><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="326" id="videoFrame" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/TYdEHoPo6jA?rel=0&amp;autohide=1&amp;wmode=transparent&amp;enablejsapi=1" width="580"></iframe></div> <p>The GN2 also features Samsung’s new Smart ISO Pro technology, a new HDR capture mode teased earlier this month in the above video. Smart ISO Pro builds upon the original dual-gain Smart ISO technology found in the GN1, which enabled the sensor to switch between high-gain and low-gain readouts depending on the amount of light in a scene. Now, instead of simply switching between the two gain modes depending on the scene, the GN2 can output two readouts at different gain levels — one for preserving detail in the shadows and one for preserving details in the highlights and merge the images together to create a single photo with maximum dynamic range.</p> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="images noCaptions noCrop singleNoBorder center" data-image-height="null" data-image-width="590"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="image" style="width: 590px;"><img border="0" data-thumbnail-height="0" data-thumbnail-width="590" height="331" src="https://3.img-dpreview.com/files/p/E~TS590x0~articles/3732090516/GN2_1.jpeg" width="590" data-filename="GN2_1.jpeg"></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>Samsung has also implemented a new ‘staggered-HDR’ feature in the GN2, which ‘uses rolling shutters over the same pixel arrays to capture multiple frames in short, middle, and long exposures.’ Compared to previous real-time HDR capture modes, Samsung says the staggered-HDR capture mode consumes 24% less energy for improved battery life.</p> <p>On the video front, Samsung has also enabled 1080p video capture at up to 480 frames per second (fps) and 4K at 120 fps. Samsung says the ISOCELL GN2 is currently in mass production but doesn’t elaborate on what smartphone manufacturers will be using this sensor.</p> The world in one park: Irina Rozovsky's best photograph https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2021/feb/24/new-york-prospect-park-brooklyn-lake-irina-rozovsky-best-photograph Photography | The Guardian urn:uuid:83a8fa5a-7962-c04d-86ef-cd07e3920ab1 Wed, 24 Feb 2021 16:30:55 +0000 <p>‘If you’re standing still on a New York street, you’re either lost or crazy.

It was always nice there but I never thought much about it, nor was it so interesting to me photographically. Then, one early summer evening in 2011, a friend invited me to join her on a boat ride on the lake for her birthday. I had no idea there was a lake, and I remember being disoriented and getting lost trying to find it. Finally on that boat, floating slowly through the dusk, what I saw was so good I had to pinch myself.</p><p>In New York, if you’re standing still on the street, you’re either lost or crazy. Maybe you’re waiting for someone, but even then you’re pacing. On that lake was the first time I’d seen real stillness in New York. It felt as if someone had stopped the clock. I realised the Long Meadow area of the park where I’d always gone was just one section – the homogenous, wealthier corner. But here at the lake was the world. On the shores was every kind of person – a patchwork of cultures, ethnicities and religions. All these different people were there, all perfectly equal, all perfectly at ease.</p><p>There are soft boundaries: a Haitian area, somewhere Latinos go, places for Russians.

The design of the 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary is based on the existing 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art, but with a focal range starting at 28mm, making the lens body significantly smaller and lighter while maintaining superb optical performance. It is the smallest and lightest lens in its class*. Remaining true to the Contemporary line's core concept of maintaining an optimal balance between optical performance and lens size, this new optic delivers professional quality results in a body small enough to take on a casual outing.</p> <p>In addition to prioritizing portability, SIGMA’s optical engineers introduced a new combination of coatings and structural elements that make this standard zoom well-equipped for use in a wide range of shooting environments. Likewise, the latest production and manufacturing techniques were employed to ensure exceptionally high build quality.</p> <p>The 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary introduces another fast, high-performance, large-aperture zoom lens to SIGMA’s mirrorless line-up, offering a more compact alternative to the existing 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art.</p> <p><em>* As a standard zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras with F2.8 brightness throughout the zoom range (Source: SIGMA, as of February 2021)</em></p> <p><strong>[Key features]</strong></p> <p>1. Design based on SIGMA’s Art line, with the same uncompromising optical performance<br>The optical design of the SIGMA 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary is based on the 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art, which is renowned for its outstanding optical performance throughout its zoom range. True to the Contemporary line's core concept, the 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary was developed to offer the right balance of performance and portability, and as such, this large-aperture standard zoom delivers outstanding image quality that rivals Art line lenses in a body light enough for day-to-day use. Building on state-of-the-art technology, the 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary has an advanced optical design that includes three aspherical, two FLD, and two SLD elements. Despite using fewer elements in total than the 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art, the design results in a thorough correction of axial chromatic aberration and sagittal coma aberration, which cannot be corrected in-camera, allowing users to create images that are uniformly sharp from the center to the edges of the frame. Along with its anti-ghosting design, the use of Super Multi-Layer Coating and Nano Porous Coating means well-controlled flare for high-contrast results in backlit conditions. It also features a water and oil repellant coating on the front side of the lens.</p> <p>In short, the SIGMA 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary combines all of the key optical features required of a large-aperture standard zoom lens, which are essential for photographing a wide variety of subjects in a range of shooting conditions.<br><em>・Comparison of the two optimal solutions to standard zoom lenses with F2.8 brightness throughout the zoom range.</em></p> <p>With the addition of the new 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary, SIGMA now provides two optimal solutions of standard F2.8 zoom lens for mirrorless cameras ― the new 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary achieves remarkable portability and offers the same optical performance, as the existing 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art which is for pro-use with the highest levels of performance throughout its focal range.<br><br> <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>2. A lightweight and compact body ― ideal for day-to-day use</strong></span></p> <p>Being slightly less wide-angle than the 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art has allowed a significant reduction in the size of the 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary lens body. In order to fit with the design concept of the Contemporary line, which balances performance with portability, the new lens features a simpler dust- and splash-proof structure and smaller switches. This makes it the smallest and lightest lens in its class*.</p> <p>The new lens features just one lightweight focusing element, which keeps the AF unit small. This, along with a quiet and fast stepping motor, makes for responsive and near-silent autofocus performance.</p> <p>The 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary weighs in at 470g, and when attached to the SIGMA fp, the entire setup is 890g. The supreme portability afforded by a camera system that weighs less than 1kg gives photographers a huge amount of freedom and flexibility to achieve their creative vision. It’s also a perfect combination for filmmakers looking for a high-performance, lightweight, easy-to-handle camera system that works well with a gimbal and other accessories.</p> <p>A large-aperture, standard zoom lens that is light and small enough for casual outings, the 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary will open up new photographic possibilities for better and more creative results.</p> <p><em>* As a standard zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras with F2.8 brightness throughout the zoom range (Source: SIGMA, as of February 2021)</em></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>3. Superb build quality with exceptional attention to detail that provides an exceptional user experience</strong></span></p> <p>With priority given to optimal portability, the body of the SIGMA 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary consists primarily of lightweight parts. While conventional wisdom states that it is more difficult to ensure processing accuracy for plastic parts than metal parts, there has been no compromise whatsoever on build quality for the 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary. One reason for this is that it uses a type of polycarbonate called TSC (Thermally Stable Composite), which has a comparable level of thermal shrinkage to aluminum. This helps reduce differences between the thermal shrinkage of the metal and non-metal parts, ensuring stable levels of performance even in an environment with extreme temperature changes. The use of polycarbonates in the construction of zoom and focus rings can make their operation feel less premium, but with careful treatment to the precision of these parts and adjusting the movement with the lubricant appropriately, the rings offer a precise action with an exceptionally high-quality feel.</p> <p>What allows us to achieve these precisely produced parts and such premium aesthetics is the impressive standard of manufacturing technology and rigorous quality control we have at the SIGMA Aizu Factory.</p> <p>The SIGMA 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Contemporary offers a new and improved photographic experience for mirrorless users who require a fast aperture standard zoom lens. Its premium, intuitive build makes it as exciting to use the lens as it is to see the incredible images it can produce, inspiring you to start achieving your creative potential.</p> <p><strong>[Additional features]</strong></p> <ul> <li>Lens construction: 16 elements in 12 groups, with 2 FLD elements, 2 SLD elements and 3 aspherical elements</li> <li>Internal focusing</li> <li>Compatible with high-speed autofocus</li> <li>Stepping motor</li> <li>Compatible with lens-based optical correction<br><em>* Function available on supported cameras only.

Within five to ten minutes, you suddenly have a tight, organized group of photographs that you can easily access.</p> <p>I always go back to old folders later on and make sure to look through the three-starred images. You will find by doing this you will occasionally locate incredible photographs that you missed the first time around. It happens to me all the time.</p> <h4>Only show your best photographs</h4> <div id="attachment_85743" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-85743" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-85743 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/street-photography-editing-tips-3.jpg" alt="street photography editing tips" width="570" height="380" /><p id="caption-attachment-85743" class="wp-caption-text">Finding your best shots</p></div> <p>The side benefit of being organized is that it helps you become better at figuring out your best shots and not getting lost in giant folders of photos. People will judge your work by the worst photographs, and if you show too many, they will not have the attention span to go through it all and give your work the attention it deserves.</p> <p>So be ruthless in choosing only the top photographs and forget the rest.</p> <h4>Collections / Projects</h4> <div id="attachment_85744" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-85744" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-85744 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/street-photography-editing-tips-4.jpg" alt="street photography editing tips" width="570" height="428" /><p id="caption-attachment-85744" class="wp-caption-text">Assembling collections</p></div> <p>Start to classify your work into different collections. Search for photographs that fit together based on expression, emotions, ideas or places. The connections could be anything, but as you start to bring like-minded work together, this is how your vision will begin to grow.</p> <p>Collections will typically start loosely, but over time you will make them tighter and tighter as the work starts to improve. They will evolve significantly from your initial ideas. You will notice more moments when out shooting and eventually come back with better work for it. Also, you will start understanding yourself and your goals better. It’s a fascinating process.</p> <h4>Consistency</h4> <div id="attachment_85745" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-85745" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-85745 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/street-photography-editing-tips-5.jpg" alt="street photography editing tips" width="570" height="428" /><p id="caption-attachment-85745" class="wp-caption-text">Developing consistency</p></div> <p>As your vision starts to develop, so will your consistency. The work will begin to fit together better in theme, idea, emotion and look. As a photographer, you will start to shine through in the work as well.</p> <p>Now, this isn’t to say that different projects and collections need to look and feel similar. They can be completely different! But this consistency will still show throughout your work in both obvious and subtle ways.</p> <h4>Sequencing and book mockups</h4> <div id="attachment_85746" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-85746" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-85746 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/street-photography-editing-tips-6.jpg" alt="street photography editing tips" width="570" height="428" /><p id="caption-attachment-85746" class="wp-caption-text">Sequencing into a story</p></div> <p>As your collection tightens, the next step is to sequence it into a &#8220;story&#8221; of sorts. This is a difficult but incredible process wherein your vision starts to take more of a concrete shape. Think about an arc, what photographs work well early, what works in the middle and how the ending might look.</p> <p>Place importance on how photographs look next to each other, near each other and how they play off each other. Are photographs too similar to work together, do they match too well or are they too different? What do different photographs bring out in each other? The sky is the limit with what you can do here.</p> <p>Consider whether you want to print out your photographs and paste them into notebooks to sequence, or whether you prefer to try something like the Book Module in Lightroom, which allows you to easily sequence a book and upload it to Blurb to have a mock copy printed for you. I love and utilize both strategies and they both have their purpose.</p> <h4>Photographer research</h4> <div id="attachment_85747" style="width: 390px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-85747" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-85747 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/street-photography-editing-tips-7.jpg" alt="street photography editing tips" width="380" height="570" /><p id="caption-attachment-85747" class="wp-caption-text">Finding your vision</p></div> <p>Alongside all this is photographer research, which is a necessary step for finding your vision. Search for photographers who you relate to and whose work has a feeling that you want to include in yours. Look through their projects and purchase some photo books to get a sense of how sequencing works.</p> <p>This will educate your eye, help give you ideas for what to shoot when you’re out in the world and help to focus your projects. While you don’t have to copy these photographers exactly, feel free to steal from their ideas and weave them into your vision. Take the best of your favorite photographers and bring it all together to improve who you are as a photographer.</p> <p>It’s a long, fun, rewarding process doing all of this, but please don’t try to rush it. Shoot a lot, edit a lot, look at great photography a lot and you’ll find yourself improving each day. Slowly but steadily, you will see your work improve in such an incredible way.</p> <h4>For Further Training:</h4> <p>This <a href="https://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/editing-street-photography/?ref=2">new in-depth course</a> shows you James Maher’s entire street photography editing process from beginning to end.
