Sometimes as creatives we need a spark, a kick in the ass, something to light that fire that pushes into action. Well Joey L just did that for me and I certainly hope he did it for you.
Joey has created an unbelievable video that includes vivid stories and sensational and emotionally charged photos called “GUERRILLA FIGHTERS OF KURDISTAN”. The fact that he put himself into such a risky situation speaks volumes. Would you put yourself into that situation or is that something you could never see doing.

I can’t believe I am doing this but I really do want to help as many photographers as possible. In celebration of the 5 Year Anniversary of the website I have decided to offer the FroKnowsPhoto Guide To Getting Out Of Auto for 50% OFF when you use code fiveyear50 RIGHT HERE.
I know what it’s like to struggle to get the photos that you really want to get. I personally was stuck in auto for over 10 years when I was getting started. Think about that, many of you have not been shooting for more than a few years and I was stuck in auto for 10.
Do you know how many times I have been sitting at the bar and people attempt to take photos of their drinks but they never come out well? One of the main reasons they don’t come out well is people always have to angle their camera down.
The way around making that object look bigger and more epic is to flip the cell phone upside down so the lens gets closer to the ground, bar or table allowing you to shoot up at your subject thus making it seem more grand.
Think about when you are photographing kids. If you shoot straight down looking at them there is no interest in the photos. On the other hand if you get on a lower angle to photograph kids they fill the frame more and look much better.
It’s not every day that someone gives you their RAW Files to edit but that’s exactly what I am doing right here. I am giving you three of my RAW Files from the “Las Vegas 5 Min Portrait” as DNG files to be edited in Adobe Lightroom.
Feel free to try your hand at editing these files any way you would like but please make sure if you post the images online that you link back to FroKnowsPhoto.com. How will you edit them, what will you do to make the images pop? I am really interested in seeing the edits that you will do to the files.
