Chasing the Light, Defamation Suits and Mini Studios: Our Top Blog Posts from May 7 - 13

By Sarah Ackerman

Have you caught spring fever yet? Take some time to relax with our favorite photography blog posts of the week!

HUMAN INTEREST:  Follow PPA photographer Sheri Kendrick as she captures memories for families with young children with life threatening illnesses. It's a heartwarming story - go ahead and grab the tissues. 

LEGAL BATTLE: You may remember the photographer who was publically accused of not releasing wedding images until the clients paid $150 for an album cover. Now instead of the clients suing the photographer, the photographer has taken a $1 million suit against the couple. See how it all plays out (and be happy this isn't you)!

HERITAGE: Ali Alamedy spent 9 months creating a miniature photography studio, complete with over 100 different objects, to honor photographers of yesteryear. Check out his work in DIY Photography. 

INSPIRATION: If taking to the high seas is in your future, this is an excellent inspiration piece from Feature Shoot of stunning images of the ocean. Dive in!

CREATIVITY: Benjamin Shine has started creating phenomenal portraits with tulle in Canberra, Australia. Check out his larger than life series here.   

MICROSCULPTURE: Levon Biss has spent weeks perfecting images of a single insect and his results are incredible. Watch the video to see how he did it and marvel in his final works in this great read!

SHADOWING: Popular Photography spent a day following music and concert photographer, Gretchen Robinette. See how she works on set, finds inspiration and creates moving images from a wide range of music styles.

DRONES: Some photographers like hooking up a camera to their drone, but Jeffrey Moustache set his up to be a source of light. Explore his technique and the after-dark images he was able to capture with this new use of drones. 

WIDE OPEN SPACES: Calling all studio photographers: get outside! Join photographer Sean Tucker on an excursion to refuel your inspiration and get out of your rut. 

EFFICIENCY: If photographing a wedding gives you a panic attack, this is a great read from Photography Talk on creating a timeline and making sure you're ahead of schedule.
