11/08/06: Learn From the Pros

Every time I look through magazines I find myself analyzing the photos for a glimpse into how the image was made. You too can do this -- what ever type magazine you read whehter it's sports, nature, news, etc. If you find images that strike you...take some time to study what made the photo magazine worthy. Check the composition, the color, the direction of light -- what did the pro have to deal with and how did he or she make it work? Look for clues such as the catch light in the eyes, where the shadows are, etc. (if any). Does the photo look like it has had extensive work in photoshop (very likely in ad photos, but not always so in feature photos). By training yourself to look at magazine photos as a photographer...you'll begin to learn how you can improve your own photos.
