Make Something New 12 – Lightpad

This time our creative prompt is more of a specific challenge – to use a lightpad to create an interesting backlit photo. You may be thinking, “I don’t have a lightpad” but you likely do. A lightpad is just a flat, lit surface to place your subject on in order to back (or through!) light it. You can use any iPad, monitor, TV screen or even a sunlit window as a lightpad.

I was chatting with Armand today and we have decided to offer our video workshop for half price to help keep people busy. You can’t go […]

South Carolina is a beautiful place.  Admittedly I do take some artistic license as well.  I like to make things mine.  Or show them through my own personal filter.  How do you feel about photo editing?  Do you feel photographs should show exactly what a place or person looks like?  Or is it ok for […]
