Five Lessons I’ve Learned Through Film Photography

All images by Julien Matabuena.

Let me begin by saying that this is by no means a discussion on which between digital or film photography is more superior; rather, this is an ode to my favorite medium. Like many people my age – I just turned 30, in case you’re wondering – my first brush with taking pictures was when I was a kid through my family’s resident point-and-shoot camera. But it wouldn’t be until college when I’d get my first proper cameras: a hand-me-down Minolta α-7700i SLR and a Sony DSLR (unfortunately, I no longer remember what model it was).

Knowing Your Gear Is More Important Than Having The Best Gear

In this fast-paced age of photography innovation, it can seem like your gear is obsolete months after you purchase it. But having the newest kit doesn’t guarantee the best results.

We have all been there, not just with photography but with many things in today’s fast-paced world. You buy a brand new product and before you can blink an eye a newer version of it is released that has some amazing new features that make your still basically new product feel a little less special. It is an unfortunate side effect of the rapidly evolving world in which we live, there is always something newer, something better, something more optimized for a specific task. It is the reason why things like GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) exists, these companies have trained us to always be on the looking for something newer, and as they would have you believe, something better.

Review: Masters of Photography: Joel Meyerowitz

Joel Meyerowitz is Yoda.

That’s what I said to myself 20 minutes into his new MasterClass offered by Masters Of Photography. We rarely get to learn from the true legends of photography.

Tyler Shields on Learning Photography from a YouTuber vs. a Photographer

YouTube holds a wealth of information for budding photographers, but it’s also worth being more critical of what you’re learning to improve your craft.

The Internet, especially YouTube, has been a both a blessing and a curse for those who want to acquire new skills or get better of what they do. With the sheer volume of tutorials we can access with just a few clicks, it’s possible to learn everything there is to know about photography. However, the esteemed Los Angeles-based photographer and filmmaker Tyler Shields cautions us about the information we’re taking in, and who creates it. In a short video, he explains why we need to be able to differentiate between a YouTuber and a Photographer, and how it can make the learning experience more meaningful.

Tips For Experimenting on Personal Shoots the Right Way (NSFW)

I am a firm believer that personal creative shoots are key to photographers growing and pushing themselves forward with their skills. The key to getting better isn’t buying more expensive equipment or binge watching online tutorials. It is getting out there, getting your hands dirty, and using the equipment you have to get the image you see in your mind through trial and error. You can experiment here and there in a shoot for a client, but you still must produce the images the client is after, so too much experimentation during a paid shoot is not a great idea. For this reason, starting a personal project, or scheduling a trade shoot with another local creative is almost always the better option. During a personal creative shoot, you have the entire shoot to experiment with every aspect of your image, and you don’t have to worry about screwing up – you can plan on screwing up.

However, there are good ways and bad ways to experiment, and if you want to get the most out of your personal creative shoots, be that better images or more experience, then you should make sure and consider the following things when planning it out. Continue reading…
