Adding a backlight for a more dramatic portrait

Tweet I always love to get some dramatic photos of the groom and/or groomsmen before the wedding. If I can use lighting to add some drama to the photo then I’m all for it and many times will setup a very quick 2 or 3 light setup with my flashes to get a cool shot of the guys. For a wedding awhile back the guys were getting ready in a huge room lined with wine barrels. It was a really cool background and originally I was going to...

Super crazy photos of the Cosmos by NASA

Tweet I’ve always been a huge fan of night photography and love to look at images that incorporate the stars. I’ve haven’t shot a lot of night scenes or time lapse photos (I did write a post on how to create a fake star trail in Photoshop if you do want to learn that) but do always think they are fascinating. However these images of space from NASA really take things to a huge new level and are some of the most...
