Scavenger Hunt

So I decided to go on a scavenger hunt to find some different photographers and tips. Here are the results of the hunt.

Photographers-(I was looking for fashion and found a few but I liked the looks of these more and yes I know there are several wedding photographers in the the mix but there just as hard working without all the glamor of the fashion photographers.)

I like his fashion and studio work he seems like he wants to not label himself because he has his hand in everything, but mainly sports.

I like the lighting that he uses in his portrait I wish I knew how he does it, but I am not very fond of his group shots. He also has this site which I enjoyed. http://petespringer.wordpress.com

I liked there style, some of it is a bit weird for my taste but I am just one person. I really liked there blog that is why I posted that link rather than the home page, it just really gives you a feel for the photographers.

I liked his blog also, he has a link to his web site on the blog page but I liked how he not only blog about what he was photographing but about what was inspiring him that day or week.

Tip sites- Some of these are more for the amateur but I found it really hard to find photographers sharing lighting tips.

I found this site that tells you how to build a light tent but I would NOT build the one out of bathroom tissues. It gave several ways of building it and some I liked like the using a large tube .

This is another site that tells you a how to for building a light tent or box, I liked this one a little more and I might use it one day if I forget to get a light box from school.

This is how to light glass, I must admit I put this one up for my mom she wants to light glass. I looked at it because glass is one of the hardest things to light but I found this to simplify it, the site talks like our teachers talk about glass and does make it easier. I liked the site for the many options it gave you.

This site reminded me of my first semester at RCC and I thought that it simplified lighting even more for me it also brushed me up on things that I had placed in the back of my head and needed to be refreshed on.

Loved this site!!!!!!! This is the best thing I came across the entire time I was scavenging. Although I didn't find it alone my teacher told the class about it, but I found this one part extremely interesting. I never knew that you could make taking a picture of a piece of paper into art.


I hope you enjoyed the sites but I will encourage you to do your own . And remember we need to share information with each other!!!! It could only make us better and the need for each other stronger NOT take clients away.
