“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” — Aaron Siskind

Tip of the week 4: Understanding tone in a world of color
Highlights – Bright areas within a photo that still maintain detail
Whites – Areas of extreme brightness where there is absolutely no information(detail) remaining
Midtones – These are neither shadows or highlights but rather a middle value of luminance
Shadows – Darker areas of the image that still maintain detail
Blacks – Completely ‘burnt out’ portions of a photo that contains absolutely no detail
Tip of the week 2: Better focus on the subject What can I do to make this photo more clear on the subject? Is there a trashcan in the way I can move, or can I take the photo in a better angle/vantage point? Tripods: It can create more balance than in your hands and is great for slow shutter speeds, i.e. waterfalls, star trails, or night city lights (longer time of exposure to take a photo).
Tip of the week 1: Lighting directions Being mindful of lighting. Are you facing toward your lightsource or away? Facing away from the sun or room lighting can create a dark silhouette figure on a subject, which you may or may-not want. Facing towards the sun can even out a face creating a glowing effect. Facing sideways can create some complex shadows in a face, making it more dramatic.
