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.

    Great advice. Back lit Night Portraits was awesome (but isn't Stobist always?). Great collection, thanks!

    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:
    Does anyone know other good photogs and/or helpful concert photography websites?

    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.

    Nice, post my friend!!!

    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.

    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 :-)

  • Derick Jones May 7, 2010 10:11 pm

    Fantastic post, absolute gem so many resources I've been through a few but I can see it taking a while to get through them all. I'll bookmark it now and keep popping back. Thanks again

    I think is the best newsletter I've received till now, with most subjects at least VERY interesting. Thank you !

  • XShot April 24, 2009 03:19 am

    Thanks for sharing!
    I like the 800 group shot :)

  • CapturingLife April 21, 2009 12:50 am

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

  • Ringu April 20, 2009 01:51 pm

    Does Darren really know anything about photography?

  • Lenslicker April 19, 2009 10:49 am

    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.

  • TheOm3ga April 19, 2009 09:01 am

    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".

  • Macro Photography April 19, 2009 08:25 am

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

  • Ilan April 19, 2009 07:43 am

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