This year when I got together with my very talented friend, Mexican artist Fryda Fernandez, to create some Catrina pictures for the “El Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead) theme, she did not disappoint with her makeup creations and styling.
This year we decided to take it outdoors on location.
Whenever I post a landscape or a scenic, which is kind of a rare occurrence, too often I’m asked, “So…where is this place?” It would be polite to at least say something about the picture before you ask where I took it. (I’m not fishing for a compliment, just saying it’s being courteous)
Regardless of your skill level, all these are relevant.
So here are my suggestions for improving your photography
Seek out positive mentors. There are so many out there but not all are compatible with your way of thinking
Bring your camera with you everywhere. You’re dropped a fortune on it already, it doesn’t cost you anything to tote it everywhere, use it
Break down pictures you like, specifically ask yourself what was used to take the picture. You may be surprised with the workarounds that exist that don’t cost an arm and a leg. Read more about how I made this picture of water polo player Nicholas.
