Today I interviewed a good friend and fellow photographer, Joshua Carter with Life Captured Photography. He is primarily a High School Senior photographer in a small town in Missouri. I have had the pleasure and honor of working with him for many years now and am excited to both interview and share with you guys a little about this amazing photographer.

It’s long exposure month in Plus and long exposure goes hand in hand with neutral density filters. I always carry neutral density filters with me to control shutter speed. Good ones are perfectly neutral and don’t affect the color of your scene. They’re like dark glasses for your camera and just like dark glasses, some are better than others.
This video I shot in Kauai of my 4-step ND-process is intended to answer some frequent questions I hear from students using neutral density filters:

I am excited to start this workflow video at the very beginning with some important lighting tips for capturing your subject. I was inspired by a new tire swing photo prop and wanted to give it a test run. I will share how I approached the lighting challenges for this location and then I will edit a couple photos in ON1 Effects to show you how I completed my inspiration for this session with a beautiful summer finish.
Let’s see your absolute best long exposure image. My friends at Hoya have been kind enough to sponsor this challenge by providing Solas 3.0 (10-stop) infra-red-neutral-density filters to the first, second, and third place winners. First place will also receive $150 in cash, while second gets $100. Matt and I will select the winning images as well as some runners up to showcase in a Long Exposure Challenge video we will produce at the end of the month. Below are the rules, how to enter and some tips on working with long exposures from both Matt and me.

As photographers, it is our job to direct the viewer’s eye to the place we want them to experience in the photo. Some would think that composition alone is the best way to do that, however, there are creative ways as well.
ON1 Guru Matt Kloskowski just released a new course for those left wondering what to do once their Nik Software stops working. The best part – the course is completely FREE!
In this first video, we’re going to take a look at the basics of shutter speeds in the camera and how we can extend them. There’s of course Neutral Density Filters (ND)… but we really want to save that for last. So in this video we’ll talk about the 3 ways to get longer shutter speeds both with settings in the camera as well as when filters come in to play.
Dodging and burning can make or break a photograph. It’s also a way of leaving your own signature on a piece of work. There are many ways to do it but in this video, we’ll look at using a couple blend modes and a brush to quickly turn a good photograph into a great one. You don’t always need complex tools to make profound changes in your work. Simple tools applied in a sophisticated way can make all the difference!
Holiday’s are always a great form of inspiration. It gives everyone a good excuse to take photos inspired by the holiday. I really enjoy Red, White and Blue themed photos both at my studio as well as photographing my own family. The fun color palate really inspires me, especially when I add in a couple cute kids.
