The GrowBaby calendar shoot; let’s see some photos!

A little over a year ago I shot the GrowBaby calendar, which is now published for 2017. Let's see some photos and talk about the shoot! AS MENTIONED IN THE VIDEO… The calendars were printed on HP Indigo 7000-series digital presses, using 80# Classic Crest Text in Natural White with an eggshell finish. The front and back cover feature a soft-touch matte laminate.


How do you balance the foreground and background light?

A viewer wrote in with a specific shot problem they want to solve. We have the photo she created, and looked at how to achieve what she's after! This involves balancing light between the bright background and dark foreground.


Small Product Shoot Live Behind the Scenes

Today I needed to shoot some marketing photos of our GrowBaby 2017 calendar, so did it live! It's a simple shoot which presented some unexpected challenges, so join me to see the entire process. Unlike regular PhotoJoseph’s Photo Moments, this one has been edited for brevity.


Behind the Photo

Today we'll be going BEHIND THE PHOTO to hear the story behind a particular photo from my archives!


The LensShifter by Focus Shifter/Engineerable, first look

The company Focus Shifter / Engineerable asked if I'd take a look at their latest product, the LensShifter. It's a simple handle that attaches to your camera lens focus and zoom rings to help you get smoother movement for video pulls.


Aspect Ratio

What's in an Aspect Ratio? In today's PhotoJoseph's Photo Moment I discuss the benefits and drawbacks of common native aspect ratios.
