Hi everyone! My name is Krisnha. My pic “Milk & Cookies” was the lead photo on the December 13, 2015 Reader Photos Roundup. Eric asked me if i want to talked about the picture and a little bit about me for Photography Bay, and without hesitation I said yes.
Let me start a little bit about me. I am from Bali, Indonesia. I used to live in the US but recently I moved back to my country. Photography started as a hobby for me and it grew to a stress reliever, and now I’m a full-time photographer.
I like to experiment on things. I see new technique and I try to copy it with a twist. I see a poster of film I like, I try to emulate it at home. I like using artificial light and a heavy strobist believer (hahaha).
And now about that picture “Milk & Cookies.” [Read more…]

In this video from Karl Taylor, he walks us through one of his tips using the mulitiply blend mode and masking around some details in Photoshop to add more drama to the sky in landscape images.
As the well-known advertising jingle says, the holidays are coming. A time when families get together, eat, drink, be merry and generally have a whale of a time. So there’s no better time to whip out the phone and start capturing images of the frivolity.

So here are six tips to take your phone pictures from bluegh to wow! [Read more…]
Histograms allow us to observe the graphical representation of our exposures. Most modern cameras are equipped with the ability to review the histogram and often place a live histogram on a camera’s display to help judge the exposure before we take a photo.
In this video from Karl Taylor, he walk through the basics of reading and using histograms to aid in exposure evaluation.
In this video, Karl Taylor and Urs Recher walk us through shooting a glass with a design engraved on it. They mix soft and hard light to illuminate the glass and the engraving separately.
In the above video from Phlearn, we learn how to use advanced color tools in Photoshop. Aaron Nace walks through a unique set of tools in the Adobe Color Themes that allow you to choose complementary colors easily.
In this short video, Damien Lovegrove explains how to take low light portraits and retain good exposure and tonal range.
In the first shot, Damien uses a tripod and dials in manual exposure compensation to get the tonal range spot on. In the second shot, Damien uses a monopod and multiple light sources, including a rim light to add depth and separation.
