Photographer Jeroen Nieuwhuis is one of the creatives behind New Day studio and has been shooting since he was 11 years old. Back then, he used to do skateboarding photography. He recently travelled to Cuba for a specific documentary project that he posted on Behance (and called it People of Cuba). Jeroen tells us that he finds it very important to do personal projects like this aside from his commercial work.

With the help fo a guide, he gained the trust of the locals and was truly interested at the fact that these folks are living 50 years back in time on minimal recourses and income.

Reading and understanding your histogram can help you to create the image that you really intend it to be. It helps a photographer for the most part when they shoot photos because it will in turn explain how simple it will be to edit in post-production. When it comes to editing, you’ll get a better idea of how the image will look on another person’s monitor when you put it on the web.

To better understand the Histogram, the folks over at the Professional Photography Tips YouTube Channel have created a video to explain how histograms work in regards to landscapes (though it can surely be applied to anything.) For what it’s worth, Histograms are most useful for landscape photographers but in some situations can work for portrait photographers. The most important thing overall though has to do with knowledge of metering.

The video is after the jump.

While many photographers love to work with softboxes, there are many other light modifiers out there.

Indeed, it’s a simple to use and very effective light modifier that gives you the most bang for your buck.

To understand why, you’ll need to understand more about how the umbrella works.

When it comes to protecting a Copyright, lots of photographers and photo enthusiasts don’t know much about it. After all, many of them aren’t lawyers. We all wish and hope that our work won’t get stolen, but unfortunately it happens much more often than we’d like. With millions of photos being taken each day, there is also no telling how many thefts are reported or if the artist is even aware that it’s happening.

But in anticipation of the moment that it happens, we’ve talked to a couple of experts on the matter.
