5 Ways to Spark Creativity with a Personal Project

As artists we all have a point where we hit a creative rut. This can come from photographing the same thing over and over again, or certain times of the year, slow season or you may just need to be inspired to create something new. Photography is always evolving not only as technology advances but also as styles and trends change. It is important that we all take some time to spark our creativity and refresh with a new set of eyes.

Interview with ON1 Guru Jim Welninski

Recently we sat down with Jim Welninski of Altered Space Photography, and newly minted ON1 Guru. His story is both fascinating and inspiring and we’re so excited to share it with you. Jim has always been an artist. From drawing, to video, and now photography, he considers himself an artist who uses a camera. You will simply love his unique and amazing imagery. 

Who is Jim Welninski?

I’ve been an artist my entire life. I began drawing at a very early age and kept it up until I realized I wasn’t very good at it. Music became the center of my life, and that’s how it was for a very long time.

8 Tips for Photographing Kids on the Beach

My family and I took a little impromptu trip the Beach over spring break. Just as I type the word beach, I’m realizing I should probably clarify, the Oregon coast. Which is really more of a windy, not so warm beach.  I took my camera along in hopes that we would get a break in the weather to be able to take a few photos.  I knew I did not want a formal session of my kids but instead photos that captured the experience. Taking photos on the beach can be tricky but approaching it with a documentary style in mind really changed the expectation and instead resulted in fun little details that shared the experience just as I had hoped.
