How Much Can You Overexpose Negative Film? Have a Look!

Want to see how much you can overexpose C-41 color negative film and still get usable shots? Photographer Daniel Lachman of Retro Camera Review decided to film out recently after coming across a broken Mamiya 645E with a busted light meter. With digital images, overexposing can ruin your photos at the dreaded 255 white level,’ Lachman writes. But with C41 color film, its really the inverse relationship, with detail getting lost with under-exposure. But in terms of over-exposure, it theoretically has no limit. To test this...

Jack Simon has worked as a psychiatrist for four decades. Ten years ago, he began a personal journey in photography, and these days he rarely goes anywhere without a camera by his side. Simons street photographs reflect a curious mind and a sharp eye. I enjoy the hunt for that moment of mystery, surprise, and humor in my everyday life, Simon writes. I seek unplanned and unposed images that hint to a larger story, like a publicity still from some forgotten movie. These fragments of fictional stories are drawn from the real world...

An Intro to Lightening and Brightening Eyes in Adobe Photoshop CC

It is said that eyes are the windows to our souls and when focusing in on a portrait, we do our best to make sure they are razor sharp. With a bit of help from Photoshop, we can take the beauty of the eyes a step further. Today, we will be examining a method that I have personally used over the last few years to truly make eyes pop and give them another dimension of depth. Our goal is not to make the eyes violently vivid or blinding but to give them a look that strengthens the overall focus of the image. As an example, we will be...

How to Create a Spectacular Background Using an El Bokeh Wall

How to Create a Spectacular Background Using an El Bokeh Wall

Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur, in the out-of-focus areas of an image. You can easily get this spectacular background blur in your photos using a fast prime or macro lens (basically ones with an aperture of f/2.8 or greater), and a technique involving what many call the El Bokeh Wall. In my opinion, the El Bokeh wall is very effective at creating eye-popping bokeh, which can help make your picture more interesting and unique in its own right. However, keeping in mind the potential it has, it doesnt seem to be used often enough....
