Adam Mason asked us how aperture can affect your shot. To answer the question Kerry explains what aperture is and then demonstrates how it can be used to alter the look of the image you are trying to create. By learning how to use your aperture to control light and depth of field you can dramatically change the look of your photographs.
We kick off PMA 2009 with a little video montage and an interview with Trek-Tech (http://trek-tech.com). PMA is the largest photography trade show in the US and happens once a year. This year the show is in Las Vegas, NV and is quite huge! While you have the big companies like Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc showing their current product lines, you also have tons of smaller companies with innovating products that are looking for distributors or retail stores to carry their products.
This is it folks, the final installment of videos from WPPI 2009, sure there were some technical issue, sure I was working on almost no sleep, sure I looked like hell warmed over, but we did the best we could to bring you as much of WPPI 2009 as we could and we hope you enjoyed it. We certainly enjoyed being there and meeting everyone and can’t wait for next year.
If you haven’t had enough from WPPI, here is still more video interviews from WPPI 2009. There was so much to see that we wanted top bring as much to you as possible. Yes, we know the sound isn’t awesome but we had some hardware problems and couldn’t find a replacement mic at Best Buy, Fry’s, Sony Store, or any of the electronics stores that litter the strip so we had to make due with what we had, hopefully you can still get the goods on what was going on there.
Yup, even more highlights from WPPI 2009. In this installment we take a look at the masking tools and virtual backgrounds available from Studio Taxi (http://studiotaxi.com) then we focus on the engraved focusing screens from Crop Lines (http://croplines.com). We then headed over to talk with Kevin Kubota about his Kubota Imaging Tools (http://www.kubotaimagetools.com) and finally wrap up with a talk with our good friend Max from BorrowLenses.com (http://borrowlenses.com).
In today’s WPPI highlights we talk to the folks at A Portrait Project to learn more about this incredible new foundation that provides photographs to women who have been victims of abuse so that they can start rebuilding their new lives, there new site will be up and running soon and we will post more information as it becomes available. We also talk to Jennifer from Triple Scoop Music (http://triplescoopmusic.com) and Ron Henry from BlackRapid, makers of the R-Strap (http://blackrapid.com).
This WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) has been a great show already with tons of great speakers, two huge ballrooms of vendors, and lots of great networking with other photographers. Unfortunately you can’t be in multiple places at the same time so you have to pick and choose which speakers to go see.
