Rockstar camera chick Lisa Bettany has teamed up with Leo Laporte and the TWiT network to bring you helpful tips and ticks about using digital cameras. One area that tends to be dramatically under-covered is how the transitioning from beginner to pro. While there’s a abundance of topics on entry-level content and specialty pro-focused content, the part in-between is the hardest to find information on.
Mostly Photo focuses on things that you can achieve at home, so if you’ve got a DSLR for a while, are comfortable taking photos with it, but want to get some practical tips on improving, then you should check out Mostly Photo.
Episode 1 focuses on Low Light photography and diffusing flash (when you have to use it). Watch it on YouTube or head over to http://twit.tv/photo to download the audio or video versions.
I tried out Lisa’s covering the flash tip on the Canon 500D, you can see what a difference it makes below. To achieve the result I simply taped a receipt (semi-transparent) over the flash, the end result it much more natural skin tones.
