I love PhotoVision! I LOOOOOVVVEEE PHOTOVISION!! Do you understand what I’m trying to say here?! PhotoVision has been around over a decade and has tens of thousands of pro photographers learning from them.
PhotoVision has much to offer in the way of educational videos. I ran across their products around five or six years ago and I’ve been a fan ever since. The DVDs I bought back then are still helpful and I love to go back and watch them all the time.
PhotoVision offers other stuff as well like products such as calibration targets but what they are most known for and rightly so are their instructional videos.
For a yearly subscription, you can receive their videos six times a year. They also have other DVDs available with all subjects related to portrait photography from top portrait photographers in each given genres such as children’s photography, wedding and senior portraits. Names such as Kirk Voclain, Kia Bondurant, Sarah Petty and Sarah Antisdel. What they ask for membership is so worth the money. If you haven’t purchased their videos before you can go back and get 2009 at a very discounted rate! But even full rate is worth it in my opinion.
Also, check out their facebook page!

Using frontal light for portrait subjects can be quite flattering
Today’s post was found on was found on Digital Photography School, a great website that has tons of helpful tips and advice for digital photographers. Since the writers of our site are portrait photographers and many of our readers are as well, I thought I would share today’s post with you as it is simple but great advice for photographing outside.
The article being featured today is “How To Use Sunset to Light Portraits“. They briefly but very helpfully explain using the sun to front, side and back light your subject outdoors. A good article for beginners and a good reminder for everyone else as well. We all need a good reminder here and there, every once in a while.
Using the sun as backlight can be very interesting and appealing if done right
If you are unaware of Digital Photography School, their website describes it as the following
Welcome to Digital Photography School! Discover how to use your digital camera with our Digital Photography Tips. We are a community of photographers of all experience levels who come together to learn, share and grow in our understanding of photography.
Definitely a site worth checking out! I would suggest making their site part of your continuing education as there is always something new, interesting and helpful on their site.
