How Did They Do That?! Photo Episode 4
How Did They Do That?! Episode 4
It takes a lot to create a great photo, and sometimes the process seems like a mystery to the casual observer. In each episode of How Did They Do That?!, I interview a photographer about the creative process behind one of his or her recent popular photos. This time, I talk to suzi9mm about what went into creating Sprained Minds.

:1: Can you tell me some of the technical details about this photo?
It was taken with a Canon 10D and Sigma's suberb 105mm EX macro lens. I seemed to have forgotten the ISO speed at 200, which was completely unnecessary as I used a studio flash with a softbox and that offered plenty of light. Thanks to the flash, I could easily use aperture 11.

I never felt like it would contain a message of any kind. It's more like a vi

:1: Can you tell me some of the technical details about this photo?
I was using a Nikon D70 with the kit lens at 18mm. Lighting came from a SB600 wireless flash reflected from the back of an old armoire. Exposure time was about 1/250s. I processed the photo with the Photoshop RAW plugin, converted it to black and white, and nothing more.

It was a part of my i. series, which deals with information. It should make people think the role

:1: Can you tell me some of the technical details about this photo?
Shot on Canon 5D with a Canon 17-40mm f/4L lens. Pushed it out to 17mm at 100 ISO using f/5.6 (which is the sharpest aperture for this lens in my opinion) with 1/125 shutter speed. No flash, using natural light. But these values mean nothing because every shot will have their own characteristics depending on the location and the lighting so you would

This time, I talk to jonjacobsen about what went into creating The forgotten arrival.

:1: Can you tell me some of the technical details about this photo?
Well, I took this picture with a Canon 350D. 1/400, F/5.0 at 27mm (I use the 18-55mm lenses) and a 100 ISO speed.
The post editing was done in Photoshop CS: Levels, colors, curves, channel mixer and selective correction.

:2: What are you trying to say with this photo?
The concept of this series was "World as reverse". This picture talks about a very well-known princess who arrived, but no one came to g

Portrait Features

Wed Jul 9, 2008, 5:55 AM
I never seem to update my journal, so oops! Not that I ever seem to have much to say.

I've recently been managing to take more portrait photographs. I love portrait photography when it turns out well - but it's so hard to practice because the vast majority of people I know seem to be camera shy!
But I've had a few people not mind me taking photos of late, which is always nice.

And on that theme, I shall update my Featured works.

Hi! How are you?

I really love your pictures/your style!

I also want to start doing portraits now. I hope I don´t totally screw it up.
I still have a lot to learn...

Can you maybe help me with some question I have? When taking a picture of a stranger, do I actually need a written permission from that person to use it, or is his word enough?

Have a nice day!
