Korean Cherry Blossoms of 2016

By on Apr 26, 2016 in Photography | 0 comments

Spring is always time for a feeling of renewal. With the changing of the weather, also comes a lighter feeling for me. It has been a great start to the year and I have achieved a lot in just the first few months. However, I started to really come around during this past week. Not sure if it was the fact that I have had my head down for the last little while trying to finish my assignments for my masters degree or if it was the just the hazy weather here in Ulsan. At any rate, I felt a sense of freedom these last few days as projects for this term have all been handed in. I also taught my first ever workshop. The weather had a limiting factor as I had originally planned for the workshop to be on a Sunday but the the weather in Ulsan had other plans. With a beautiful sunshine on the Seongnam Lake Park, two amazing students showed up. I was a little shocked that they were both great...

The Death Wish Coffee Project

By on Apr 15, 2016 in Photography, Tutorials | 0 comments

A few months ago I came across a Death Wish Coffee,  a company that makes “the world’s strongest coffee” and I was impressed. I was really into their site and their image. Having spent a year in Vancouver working with the top tier of baristas in the coffee industry, I have always had a soft spot for smaller coffee companies like this. So I decided to reach out to them and see if they would be interested in letting me make some cinemagraphs for them and to see what sort of response that would get. This was the first time that I ever reached out to anyone and also purposely made cinemagraphs for a project. To my surprise Death Wish was onboard and a few weeks later, I got some of the strongest coffee I had ever tasted. It came at the best possible time too. I had about 2 presentations and 3 academic papers to finish for my masters at St.FX and I needed something with a...

The 5 Day Deal: Why you should buy it NOW!!

By on Feb 29, 2016 in Photography, Reviews | 0 comments

Every year or so, I write about the 5 Day Deal. I have been an affiliate in the past and I truly enjoyed the entire experience. I opted out this year but am still promoting the event because I truly believe in even without the benefit of being an affiliate. So yes, I even bought the bundle as well because it is that good. Here is why this year I want you to buy it. First and foremost is that it helps real people. This isn’t one of those events where people get rich and then “donate” a tiny bit to some random multinational company charity that then pays a good looking celebrity to make a show on social media donating what’s left of the tiny donation. This money goes to real people who really need it. Learn more about the 5DayDeal Charity partners here. The second reason is that the package this year is actually designed to help you as a photographer grow your...

The Number 1 Thing That Beginner Landscape Photographers Forget When Shooting

By on Feb 24, 2016 in Getting the Shot, Photography | 2 comments

Landscape photography is often the first stage for a photographer because they usually want to photograph the beauty that they see around them or while they are on vacation. You could say that many of those scenic shots you got while on vacation are in fact “landscape shots” So now what is is the difference between those shots and the ones that are hanging on the walls in galleries or published in books? Normally, titles like this are click-bait for a new ebook or photo-gadget. However, I have nothing to sell just an idea. This is something that I have picked up from mainly reading David DuChemin. In his books, he talks a lot about vision and this is something that got me thinking the other day when someone sent me a message about looking at their photo. When a portrait photographer takes a photo of a person, we instantly know what the subject is. There may be some more...

I just want to let everyone know that I am now putting together a monthly newsletter called “The Sajin Newsletter” which will be about my photography and include  numerous other bits of information that I find throughout the month. This is a great way to keep up to date with my photography but also to learn more about the photography world.

However, if you are just getting into photography, this world may seem a little bit overwhelming at first.  However, with this monthly newsletter I will be pointing you in the direction of some helpful articles and information that can help you improve your photography. You may have noticed a new pop-up that wants your email address, fear not! That is just me hoping that you sign up to receive the newsletter. This new option will also...

HDR Masterclass: Serge Ramelli tells his secrets

By on Jan 5, 2016 in Reviews | 0 comments

I have read a lot of books and I have tried to utilize the information that I found. However, some books either explained to much and we’re just boring and others didn’t explain enough and lost me. The HDR masterclass felt just about right. The book flows much in the same way as Serge’s popular YouTube videos do. Allowing you to following along easily and also understand what each step or slider does. Even as a veteran HDR shooter, I learned a few things from this book. For me, I found the book well laid out and very simple to read. It was not as flashy as other books and that allowed me to focus on the content a little more. Keep in mind that I was primarily reading this on my iPad and that could also have been a factor as I feel that iBooks does tend to cut out a lot of distractions in some ways. Serge covers a lot of ground in this ebook and leaves no stone...
