Urban Exploration Photography #AuthorChat with Urbex Author Todd Sipes

By Brad YaleOct 20, 2015

With Halloween 2015 coming up, this is the right time of the year to post this. Todd Sipes, author of "Urban Exploration Photography: A Guide to Creating and Editing Images of Abandoned Places", took part in the Peachpit Twitter #AuthorChat over the summer. His work takes a deep look at the forgotten decay of modern society. 

His work is gobsmackingly (not a word, I know) incredible - both inspiring and creepy. His work brings him to locations which would make the majority of us run away. His work requires grit, determination and a certain sense for fleeing. His work is ballsy and wondrous. 

Take a few moments to check out his #AuthorChat below.

Tips on Shooting A Killer Headshot from a Photography Idiot

By Brad YaleAug 19, 2015

I don't own a camera outside of my smartphone. I can't remember the last time I owned a camera and I have never once considered myself a photographer. Outside of snapping some mobile pics to throw on Instagram, my photographer cred is pretty nil.

This being said, after spending last week in Las Vegas for Photoshop World 2015 where I spent more time watching people take photos, snap selfie headshots of themselves and following around Mr. Peter Hurley to watch a master at work, here are my bulletproof idiot tips for taking an amazing headshot. 

For much better tips, pick up Mr. Hurley's new title, "The Headshot".
