Have you ever seen the musical Oliver? If not, it doesn’t matter much. After all, we all know that food is glorious. Most of us love eating. In fact, food is involved in many, many social pastimes, including picnics, baby showers, weddings, game nights, and more. But when you can’t smell the food, can’t see the real thing, or can’t taste it because it is only depicted in an image, how do you make it seem glorious? Doug Davis not only loves playing with food, glorious food, to make it look glorious, he is good at it, too!
Taking photographs of certain things, such as the sky at night, can present quite the challenge. The night sky can be mercurial, pardon the pun. Sometimes it is gray and overcast, other times filled with stars, and at yet other times you may see clouds moving by quickly during a storm, or because of some other fast moving weather front. But that is what makes the night sky so fascinating. But are there secrets to photographing it, whether it be a cloudy sky or a celestial night sky?
Creative design photography is meant to be unique, eye-catching, and memorable. It is not the same as point and shoot photography, for instance when taking a family photograph or a photo of a still life, etc. It is something more than that. It’s a combination of art and photography that brings to life a vision, a message, or just a really cool photo. When creating a creative design photograph, the photographer may use any of a number of mediums including sculptures, models, dioramas, food, and more. Why creative design photography? So you will never forget it.
Make an Impression
Do you know why some TV commercials are so weird? It’s to make an impression so you will remember them. The same goes for creative design photography. By providing a striking image, a complex idea, or creating a reality from your imagination, the uniqueness makes an impact on the viewer and they will remember it. It’s a great way to bring attention to your business, your product, your practice, your agency, etc. Creative photography can be used for advertisements on billboards and elsewhere; in magazines or on websites to add visual interest to large blocks of black and white copy; or for personal use.
Vision or No Vision
Whether you have a clear vision of your project or not it doesn’t matter. If you have a very clear vision, your photographer will work with you to create that vision. However, if you only have a nugget of a concept, that is Doug’s favorite kind of project. That means his imagination can go to work and together you can brainstorm ideas until you develop just the one you are looking for, a realization of your vision.

There is no doubt that drones can provide some unique aerial shots of weddings, but are there drawbacks? Not only do the bride and groom have the jitters on their wedding day, so does their wedding photographer. Weddings are very special and no one wants subpar photographs or footage. They want the best. The very best, and if you can’t deliver, well…and that’s why even the photographer has the jitters. Is he/she going to be able to deliver what the couple wants at the level of expertise the couple is expecting? There are a lot of things that could go wrong, but there are a lot of things that can go right, too. And to make your wedding experience even more unique, there are drones. Are drones the next best thing for wedding photography?

In Texas this spring, we have had our share of rain…and then some, but imagine the amazing pictures you could capture during a rain storm: the rain, the hail, the lightening, the thunder clouds, the people. In today’s blog we are going to talk about how to photograph rain. After reading it you may still be chanting rain, rain, go away…or maybe not!
Is comparing videography with still photos like comparing apples and oranges? In some ways it is. The general definition of videography is the process of capturing moving images on electronic media, including the steps involved with video production and post-production. Still photography is the art or process of producing and printing images of motionless, objects on photosensitive surfaces. As you can see, one involves motion and the other doesn’t. What are some other differences between videography and still photographs?
We all know that clothes are finicky. You can take something off the hanger and two minutes later it has cat or dog hair on it, or it got wrinkled from wearing it in the car. The same things happen when photographing clothing, and it’s not just wrinkles and cat hair. Eliminating shadows can be difficult, and it can be tricky to manage soft, even lighting. Just as food should look enticing and delicious so you want to run out and buy it, clothing should be displayed so it appeals to the consumer. So, how do you photograph clothing? Should the clothes be on a model? A hanger? The easiest technique is to photograph clothing while it’s lying flat.
