  • Leading-off is some very high quality work that I have been looking at for the past three days. The Photography of Joanna Kustra is simply stunning. Obviously working with large light modifiers and creating very soft-lit wonderfully-beautiful portraits. I also enjoyed looking back through her previous work to see her style changes. Over all very nice work.

Photoshop not only can do enhancements to poorly shot photographs, but also able to turn an ordinary person into someone with superstar qualities. Below are 40 great examples in showing the magic that Photoshop can do to an average or lousy image.
  • A beginner’s guide to focal lengths and how they affect photographs. Most people quickly learned what the focal lengths represented for their particular camera format. But these days, with so many digital camera sensor sizes and other lens peculiarities, the millimeter measurement of a lens’ focal length tells only part of the story.
  • Commercial Photographer Dan Escobar has been producing some head-turning images for a few years now. Totally worth the look.
  • Jensen Walker, also a commercial photographer, has some outstanding work that will more than likely help inspire you to shoot a variety of new work if you haven’t shot anything like that before yet.
  • Polina Osherov is a Fashion Photographer, that is producing some stunning images in environments that present themselves as challenging as I have seen. Osherov’s “Stories” is something really worth taking a look at.
