14 Great Photography Tips, Tutorials and Videos From Around the Web

Every now and again I like to do a roundup of some of the photography tips, tutorials and videos that have caught my eye around the web over the last month or so. Here’s the latest batch that I enjoyed – I hope you find them helpful.

Marc Silber managed to get ahold of this rare footage of Ansel Adams talking about Visualization.


The Key to a Photograph from Ansel Adams from SilberStudios.Tv on Vimeo.

And lastly – a video that tells how a photographer managed to get a group shot of 800 people at a conference in a dark auditorium.

See the finished shot here.

    Like a lifesaver for different situation. Definitely going to my bookmarks :)

  • http://www.beyondmegapixels.com Macro Photography

    These are great sites that will make their way to my bookmarks for sure.

    Saying just “how a photographer managed to” is pretty unfair, as Mr. Bert Stephani is one of the most talented and well known strobist photographers out there. I’d rather say “how THE Photographer managed”.

    Some good stuff in there – Bert Stephani’s (the guy who took the auditorium shot) blog and “confessions of a photographer” videos are both well worth looking at.

    Does Darren really know anything about photography?

    I enjoyed reading When The Media Steals Your Photos. Thanks for sharing.

    These are great! Though you might want to say that some of them have a bit of bad language in them.
    Some people might get offended. (I’ve learned that the hard way.)
    Thanks for sharing!

    I am so impressed and smiled to myself when I watched 10 ideas to help you get started thinking in the right direction to take spectacular photos on http://www.visualphotoguide.com/take-great-photos/.

    Especially at the idea of no. 6: “Blur It”. In fact so far I always throw away the photos that have naturally blur from my camera. Well, it turns out “blur” can even be used as a technique for taking photographs spectacularly. I like it, really :-)

    I follow your suggestion link at Concert Photography Tips from a Newbie – covers some ‘film’ tips but some good principles for digital photographers too.

    There are some tips that I get to take photos at concerts including use fast glass, use film with the proper ASA and also carry the smart pack for easy moving at concert. I think that Brian Auer has a pretty good skill.

    Great info. I love those new DSLRs that can let you do anything with a camera. Between those and photoshop, just about anyone can make a cool picture.

  • Mark Lewit

    Thanks, these are really good resources. I’m a Los Angeles based concert photographer looking for more local resources. I’ve done some searching and not finding many portfolios, my favorite local concert photographer so far is Scott Dudelson:
