One of my favorite parts of my job is being able to share my love for photography with the team at ON1. As we design, create, build and market I like to help both inspire and grow everyone’s passion for what we do. As photographers we all understand how being inspired can take you to the next level. It can feed your passion for what you love and help you grow.
Enjoy the recap of all the highlights and best teaching moments, of course each individual critique links are posted below. What a fantastic set of images you submitted this month. It’s truly a joy to see the world through your lenses. We received a record number of entries for this round and last month’s coach Liz LePage was kind enough to help Hudson and Matt tackle all the photos.
In this video we’re going to switch gears from talking about how to take long exposures and the filters around them, to some post processing. On a normal long exposure photo, there’s not too much we’d do to change things. But once in a while, you may have something moving in the photo that you didn’t want. That’s where some layering techniques come in to play.
It is unfortunate that we can’t always have the most abundant skies when we are out and about. My wife always says, “It’s a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky!” I can’t stand it, as a landscape photographer we need those puffy softboxes to drown out shadows and add interest to that big blue blob of negative space.
So, what do you do?
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.
Today, I want to talk about the newest and coolest little tool in my camera bag. It’s the Hoodman Outdoor Loupe and it’s golden. It’s small, lightweight, and lets me work with live view in bright conditions.

Neutral Density filters go hand-in-hand with Long Exposure photography. So in this video we’re going to take a look at the types of filters we can use out there. Also, the PDF with links I mentioned is included here for you to download. Enjoy!

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:
