Lighting for Dark Weddings Using an Off-Camera Soft Box – PictureCorrect: "Lighting is one of the most important aspects of any photograph. This is especially true for wedding photography, where lighting can often be difficult to control.

Reverse Mounting Your Prime Lenses for Affordable Macro Photography: "Since purchasing my 50mm prime lens a few years back, I’ve felt like a salesman for it ever since–always telling people how sharp, compact and versatile the little bugger is. Well I have one more reason to recommend it. If you mount this lens in reverse on your camera, i.e. flip it around backwards, you get an affordable and fun way to experiment with macro photography."

Slow It Down! Shooting At 1/20th Of A Second (With 15 Examples): "We’re not in a yoga class, but a nice slow breath and steady shutter release finger will allow you to take your shutter speed to a new low. And by low, I mean slow; 1/20th of a second, for instance. While it is not the slowest shutter speed out there, 1/20th of a second can lead to some interesting effects; from causing intentional blur in waterfalls to allowing for available light shooting situations and increasing depth of field. Then throw in a tripod or solid surface and more options appear."
