Written by Backdrop Express Photography Team on . Posted in Photography Tips, Product Reviews, Studio Equipment, Studio Lighting

My friend and I decided that we would try a self-assignment that we thought was impossible. We wanted to try to take a decent portrait outside on a bright sunny day. We grabbed our cameras and we took a Photoflex 5 in 1 MultiDisc 32” reflector and headed out to see what we could find. We love to shoot photos outside, but the glare is nonstop and sometimes it just causes more issues. You want to find a way to do lessen this and that is what we did when we discovered Photoflex and how this kit can work for you.

What Does a Photographer Do?

Written by Backdrop Express Photography Team on . Posted in Photographer Tips, Photography Tips

Photographers are people who present the world to the rest of the population. They are people who are self-employed and some travel to places to take pictures of things that are not seen every day. They are individuals who work hours that most people would find impossible to handle. These are organized people who must schedule their time effectively in order to make their business work.

Photography backgrounds that collapse or fold down are perfect for taking pictures at a variety of different places. These backgrounds barely cause you problems when it’s time to transport them, because they can fit just about any place. Photography backgrounds that collapse and fold weigh very little and are perfect for taking pictures of either individuals or groups. The only thing you need to maintain is the quality of your background because only high quality products will produce the ideal conditions for working. If your photography is professional and not simply a fun hobby, it’s important for you to maintain high quality work that supports a high quality reputation.

Lighting and Family Portraits

Written by Backdrop Express Photography Team on . Posted in Photography Tips, Portrait Photography

An important foundation in photography is studio lighting. Most individuals involved in the field of photography extensively discuss the correct ways to set up and use lighting but there are certain characteristics of lighting that are generally regarded as common foundations. Although these common foundations may not translate to taking portraits, the basic principles are the same. Problems occur, however, when more subjects are added to a setting. Of course, adding a couple of new subjects into a shot probably won’t require you to deal with lighting problems, you may also need to devise different lighting schemes for different situations. If you don’t take this into consideration, your final image may not be pleasing to the eye. Although you can try to light each subject, you’d also need a number of lights and an elaborate studio set up. In addition, if you are shooting large groups, you’ll definitely need to alter your approach to studio lighting.
