Do you remember the ransom notes left behind by kidnappers and villains in movies? The notes made up of different letters cut out of magazines? My first encounter with the concept of a ransom note was while watching a movie called Baby’s Day Out. The 1994 movie, aimed at kids, tells the story of a toddler kidnapped by three crooks disguised as photographers (funny, huh?).

Adding a soft vignette to your images is often a great way to strengthen an already good composition and emphasize a particular subject by making it appear brighter than its surroundings. There are many ways to create one and you don’t need an advanced software such as Adobe Photoshop to do so; it can easily be done in Lightroom. However, I rarely recommend using Lightroom’s built-in Vignette tool – instead, you should create a custom vignette.It might sound a little scary to create it yourself when... READ MORE

Diptychs are two photographs that have been placed together to tell a single, intertwining story.

You might be familiar with Youtube videos that have been shot vertically – the results are disliked by many because of how difficult it is to view... READ MORE
