Buying a Tripod in Korea

 

So the topic of tripods came up recently and I was surprised at how much people didn’t know about this seemly essential tool of photography. Now, depending on what you are shooting, for example if you call yourself a “street photographer” then you would probably more wise to spend your money on skinny jeans and thick black rimmed glasses (I’m kidding). However, for the rest of the photography realm a tripod is a needed investment.


Passport Supersized

As we prepped for our next trip at the end of the month I realized that I was running into an issue. My passport was about out of space which could in fact cause an issue. Having less than 4 pages could stop me from traveling in or out of the country and while being stuck on the shores of Boracay seems like a plan to me, Nicole, Eunee and the Baby-to-be thought otherwise.

Flash Light Photography Workshop: Recap

 

Participants test some of the new skills they learned during Saturday’s Workshop in Busan.


Buddha’s Birthday Review

I love this time of year. I am not Buddhist but I do feel a great sense of calm when I am at temples, but sadly depending on the time you go, calm might not be achieved. However, this year I had a really great experience and even a personal tour of Junggwangsa.


Flashlight Workshops BUSAN: Off Camera Flash

These days I have been hearing a lot of talk about workshops for photographers in Korea. No doubt they exist but are probably hard to come by in English. Fortunately, Flashlight Expeditions is running regular workshops around the country to meet the needs of aspiring photographers.

Busan Workshop

On June 16th, Dylan Goldby will be in the bright lights of Busan, to make it even brighter by showing us how to use  off camera flash. This is one of the trickiest things to master with photography in some senses, but a working knowledge will payoff in the long run. Dylan will cover wide range of topics directly related to you, the photographer who wants to learn about off camera flash in Korea. Here is what the course will entail (excerpt from www.flashlightexpeditions.com):


Back Button Focusing

So I picked up a great ebook by James Brandon and it was great! In there he talked about a number very useful techniques that will help improve the sharpness of your photos before they hit photoshop! This is something that we all need to take a bit of time and study rather than relying on the myriad of techniques to compensate for what should have been taken care before hitting the shutter release.


Roof Topping in Korea

After reading about a recent rags-to-riches (in a manner of speaking) story courtesy of 500px, realized what many of us have been doing in Korea has become a “trend” Roof Topping seems to be the new thing in photography where people head to the roofs of buildings and take photos from it.


iMo Camera Straps

 

The camera strap is one of those things that comes in the box and most people don’t even think about. They just stick it on the camera and BOOM that’s that. However for those of us who have had the unfortunate displeasure of lugging around a 70-200mm lens stuck on a DSLR with a battery pack, you will soon realize that a comfortable strap in something of a necessity. For others, the standard Nikon or Canon straps are too “boring” and they want to express themselves a little bit more or just make their black box stand out from the rest.


Event Shooting in Korea

Myself and my Good Friend/ Event Committee Member

 

I just finished a great gig with the Ulsan St. Andrew’s Society shooting their Burn’s Night Charity Ball. It was a hard gig and certainly full of challenges but the photos turned out great and the clients were more than happy. I would like to pass on some of the information that I learned from shooting this event.
