ON1 Inspiration — Episode 4: The Human Factor

If you were a betting person, it’d be safe to place your bet that I’d always go for a photo that has no one else in it. It’s just who I am as a photographer and I’ve learned to embrace that, making it a part of my brand. However, as a photographer, I want to ensure that I leave myself room to grow and expand. Doing so increases my likelihood of broadening my capabilities and reach. It also helps me in my pursuit of creating unique photos.

Mobile Photography and Editing of Downtown Cincinnati

Last month I spent a couple of days teaching at a conference in Cincinnati. I ventured outside the hotel for a quick walk, really having no thought of taking photos or doing a video. But as I got near the water and looked at the city skyline, I started wishing I had my camera there to grab some photos. Then I realized, I did have my camera – my phone! And I had a video camera too – my phone!

A Modest Camera Photo Challenge

Hi everyone! It’s your ON1 Plus Guest Coach, Brian Matiash. During last week’s Live Q&A session, I fielded a question asked by ON1 Plus member, Anastasios and it really stuck a chord with me. His question focused on feeling like a lesser photographer because of the size of his camera compared to another photographer who was shooting next to him. Despite answering the question during the Q&A session, I just couldn’t shake it.

What Photo Inspires You?

Pretty open ended question huh? I have an idea for an exercise, and I’d love to see a photo (yes, One photo – not a photographer) that inspires you. A photo that you wish you’d taken. If you don’t immediately know where to go to find a photo, try searching/browsing through 500px.com or Flickr.com, or just do a google search. Just one photo though. Easy enough right?
