This week, I had an awesome opportunity to chat with the Queen of Personal Branding Photographers - Flor Blake.Flor Blake is a portrait, editorial, and commercial photographer with a style consisting of imaginative, vibrant, and dynamic imagery.She grew up in the Caribbean (the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico) where you are automatically surrounded by color, rawness, vivacity and "flavor", all of these elements greatly influence her work.  With a Fashion Designer as a mom, Flor grew up among fabrics, patterns, and sketches, she even stitched her fingers a couple of times when playing in her mom's workroom.  All of this helped shape her aesthetic and gave her a great understanding of how design and the creative process in general works.Her professional background includes all aspects of theater, documentary coordination, video production and editing, and a degree in Advertising from the University of Puerto Rico. She loves traveling (even if it's across the street), eating delicious food, and celebrating people's birthdays. Flor is based in Denver, Colorado where she lives with her wife Ileanexis and their three plants.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -LinksWebsite URLhttps://www.florblakephoto.comInstagram URLhttps://www.instagram.com/flor_blake/Facebook URLhttps://www.facebook.com/FlorBlakePhotographyLinkedIn URLhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/florblake/- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -TOGCHAT ResourcesShow Website: https://togchat.comEpisode Web Page:  https://www.joeedelman.com/flor-blakeMy Website & Portfolio:  https://www.JoeEdelman.comDon't forget to check out THE LAST FRAME LIVEWednesday evenings at 6:00PM ET US on YouTube!Each week, the Last Frame focuses on a different topic with no scripts, no razzle dazzle, no canned presentations.

This week, I had an awesome opportunity to chat with a man who is a self-described light painter. Jason Page resides in Southern Florida, and he not only practices this incredible art form, but he has invented a series of tools called light painting brushes, that along with the help of some simple flashlights, allow a light painter to paint in similar ways to an artist with a brush and a canvas. Jason is widely recognized as a leader in the current light painting movement. Jason has pioneered numerous light painting techniques and with his innovation he's created groundbreaking images.Jason's light painting work has been published internationally in print, as well as online he's exhibited his work in numerous shows and galleries, including locations like Palm Beach, Miami Amsterdam, and Moscow. To quote Jason; "Light painting is its own art form. Just as drawing is an art form or painting is an art form, calling light painting a photographic technique would be the same thing as calling, painting a canvas technique." - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -LinksJason Page Website:  https://www.jasondpage.com/Light Painting Photography Blog:  https://www.lightpaintingphotography.com/Light Painting Brushes:  https://www.lightpaintingbrushes.com/Jason on Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/lightpaintingbrushes/Jason's YouTube Channel:   https://www.youtube.com/user/lightpaintingphoto- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -TOGCHAT ResourcesShow Website: https://togchat.comEpisode Web Page:  https://www.joeedelman.com/personal-branding/My Website & Portfolio:  https://www.JoeEdelman.comDon't forget to check out THE LAST FRAME LIVEWednesday evenings at 6:00PM ET US on YouTube!Each week, the Last Frame focuses on a different topic with no scripts, no razzle dazzle, no canned presentations.

Lack of preparation is one of the biggest obstacles to improving your photography, regardless of the genre that you shoot. So this week, I want to share some thoughts with you about shoot prep. Just like most photography skills, preparation is a skill that can be learned and with some discipline and experience this is an ability that can be improved over time, by almost anyone.  So in this episode my goal is to help you not only understand the importance of proper prep for a shoot but to also walk you through the details that will make your shoots go smoother and help you achieve better results.  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -LinksVideo: DIY Portable Background Stand & Portrait Photography Background Material for studio or location - https://youtu.be/9VsP4T9AFp4Video: You need a Makeup Artist for Great Portraits, Headshots and Model Shots - https://youtu.be/0_jBCvMJh9kVideo - What To Know About Working With A Makeup Artist for great Portraits and Modeling shots - https://youtu.be/O9Wa504512EApp - The Photographer's Ephemeris - https://photoephemeris.com/enApp - PhotoPills - https://www.photopills.com/App - SunSurveyor - https://www.sunsurveyor.com/- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -TOGCHAT ResourcesShow Website: https://togchat.comEpisode Web Page:  https://www.joeedelman.com/personal-branding/My Website & Portfolio:  https://www.JoeEdelman.comDon't forget to check out THE LAST FRAME LIVEWednesday evenings at 6:00PM ET US on YouTube!Each week, the Last Frame focuses on a different topic with no scripts, no razzle dazzle, no canned presentations.

Personal Branding — Social Media — 4 words that make up two of the most misunderstood terms in the photography world.You might think that's because they have nothing to do with actually taking pictures.  But I would argue that they have everything to do with taking pictures — regardless of the genre that you shoot.Make yourself comfortable and open up your mind to some new ideas that I sincerely believe can help you improve your photography and if it is one of your goals - your business as well.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -LinksZig Ziglar - See You at the Tophttps://amzn.to/2QXkpKm ** Affiliate Link- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -TOGCHAT ResourcesShow Website: https://togchat.comEpisode Web Page:  https://www.joeedelman.com/personal-branding/My Website & Portfolio:  https://www.JoeEdelman.comDon't forget to check out THE LAST FRAME LIVEWednesday evenings at 6:00PM ET US on YouTube!Each week, the Last Frame focuses on a different topic with no scripts, no razzle dazzle, no canned presentations.

My TOGCHAT guests this week are Hasselblad Ambassadors Anna Devís and Daniel Rueda.  Based in Valencia, Spain, Anna and Daniel are both trained architects who have combined their love for geometry, perspective, and storytelling to become the ultimate creative couple. This creative duo uses their architectural backgrounds to tell stories through fun and surprising images that are far from conventional architecture photography. Their style is characterized by their visual sense of humor, creativity, precision, and a delicate aesthetic inspired by the city, geometry, and minimalism.  Their images succeed in establishing magnetic and joyful narratives that smartly suggest both the nature of human relations and the fascination with the urban environment.       Website:  https://annandaniel.com  Anna on IG:  https://instagram.com/annisetDaniel on IG:  https://instagram.com/drcuerda    Facebook:  https://facebook.com/anniset.drcuerda- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Photo Quote:"Sometimes the simplest pictures are the hardest to get." - Neil Leiferhttps://neilleifer.com/- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Up and Coming:This week's Up and Coming photographer is Aijani Paynehttps://www.aijani-payne.comhttps://www.instagram.com/aijanipayne/- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Episode Links:DIY Backgrounds: https://video.joeedelman.com/diybackground- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -TOGCHAT ResourcesShow Website: https://tog.chatMy Website: https://www.JoeEdelman.comJoin the TOGCHAT Photography Group on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/ispphotographersMy calendar of upcoming Live-Online Photography Presentations https://www.joeedelman.com/edu/I would love to be your PHOTOGRAPHY MENTOR! https://www.joeedelman.com/mentoring-for-photographers/- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -FTC Disclosure: No sponsors have paid for inclusion in this video.  I am an Olympus Visionary photographer, a Delkin Image Maker, a TetherTools Pro and a StellaPro Champion of Light.  These companies do provide me with various pieces of gear that I frequently discuss or mention,  however all words and opinions are my own, and I was not asked to produce this video.Support the show (https://paypal.me/joeedelman)
Photography critiques are traditionally nothing more than opinions offered by people who may be good at photography but who have little knowledge or concern for you or the reasons you took the photograph or how you took it.  Critiques offer an opinion of what is wrong with your photograph based on their test and a bunch of creativity killer rules.In this episode, I am going to share the science behind why photo critiques don’t work and I will teach you how to effectively ask for feedback on your work and how to properly give feedback that is useful and has a positive impact on the photographer. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Photo Quote:“Photography was a license to go whenever I wanted and to do what I wanted to do.”— Diane Arbushttps://www.wikiart.org/en/diana-arbus- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Talent under 30:Please check out Alex Schon a 25-year-old wedding photographer based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.https://alexschon.com/https://www.instagram.com/alexschon/- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Episode Links:DIY Backgrounds: https://video.joeedelman.com/diybackground Makeup Artist Directory listing makeup artists from all over the United States Videos:You need a Makeup Artist for Great Portraits, Headshots and Model ShotsWhat To Know About Working With A Makeup Artist for great Portraits and Modeling shots- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -TOGCHAT ResourcesShow Website: https://tog.chatMy Website: https://www.JoeEdelman.comJoin the TOGCHAT Photography Group on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/ispphotographersMy calendar of upcoming Live-Online Photography Presentations https://www.joeedelman.com/edu/I would love to be your PHOTOGRAPHY MENTOR! https://www.joeedelman.com/mentoring-for-photographers/- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -FTC Disclosure: No sponsors have paid for inclusion in this video.  I am an Olympus Visionary photographer, a Delkin Image Maker, a TetherTools Pro and a StellaPro Champion of Light.  These companies do provide me with various pieces of gear that I frequently discuss or mention,  however all words and opinions are my own, and I was not asked to produce this video.Support the show (https://paypal.me/joeedelman)

I want to introduce you to a practical approach to composition that can have an immediate impact on your photography and all without having to follow any creativity killing rules.Ansel Adams  is famously quoted as saying: “There are no rules for good photographs, only good photographs.” —Ansel AdamsOr from another iconic master of photography — Mr. Edward Weston: “Rules of composition are deduced from the work of strong masters and used by weak imitators to produce… nothing.” I sincerely believe that rules are CREATIVITY KILLERS.  Actually science confirms that rules are creativity killers.  The simple explanation is that once you are aware of the rules or worse yet, understand the rules — you are essentially in the box.  Everything that you do in an attempt to be creative and think outside the box to be original will be hampered by your knowledge of the rules.  I mean it is easier to think outside the box — when you don't know where the box is.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -TOGCHAT ResourcesShow Website: https://togchat.comEpisode Web Page: https://www.joeedelman.com/practical-composition/My Website: https://www.JoeEdelman.comDon't forget to check out THE LAST FRAME LIVEWednesday evenings at 6:00PM ET US on YouTube!Each week, the Last Frame focuses on a different topic with no scripts, no razzle dazzle, no canned presentations.

Join me for a great chat with Fashion and Lifestyle Photographer and fellow YouTuber — Irene Rudnyk! Irene is a self-taught fashion and lifestyle photographer located in Calgary, Canada.About Irene in her own words:My name is Irene Rudnyk, and I am a self-taught fashion and lifestyle photographer located in Calgary. I like to describe my style as romantic and artistic, I love to play around with light, softness, colors and textures. I definitely enjoy photographing people the most. I strive to make my models stand out in an image, making sure the background never overpowers the focal point of the picture.Since I was a little girl I was drawn to photography and videography. My sister and I used to pretend that she was a model, and I was a photographer, we would dress up, do our make-up, and plan the poses and locations for photo shoots. When I was quite young and could afford it, I bought my first professional camera and instantly knew that photography was my passion. I started my journey as a fashion photographer, working mostly with agencies in Calgary, like Numa Models, Mode models and Imodels.I have experimented with different styles and techniques and now as a developed photographer, I provide professional services like wedding photography, engagement, family, maternity, boudoir, model portfolio, and event coverage. I’ve also spent several years modeling, which has given me the valuable knowledge to both sides of the camera. If desired, I will be glad to help with posing ideas and angles to give you the best looking, unique images.I am very friendly and sociable, I try to make my clients feel comfortable and have a lot of fun at the shoot. I am truly fortunate to do what I do. I get to be part of a person’s special day or celebration, get to know their family and most of all, capture those precious moments for them! That’s what it’s all about to me, capturing the emotion, character, and surreal beauty in people that will last a lifetime.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Episode LinksIrene’s Links:YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/ira559Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/irenerudnykphoto/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/IreneRudnykPhoto/500PX: https://500px.com/p/irenerudnykAI Culling Software CullAI Software- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -TOGCHAT ResourcesShow Website: https://togchat.comMy Website: https://www.JoeEdelman.comJoin the TOGCHAT Photography Group on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/ispphotographersMy calendar of upcoming Live-Online Photography Presentations https://www.joeedelman.com/edu/I would love to be your PHOTOGRAPHY MENTOR! https://www.joeedelman.com/mentoring-for-photographers/WANNA SEE MY GEAR? https://tog.chat/gear- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -FTC Disclosure: No sponsors have paid for inclusion in this show.
