YURI KOZYREV – ONE OF THE BEST MILITARY PHOTO JOURNALISTS IN THE WORLD

Yuri Kozyrev is a multifaceted personality, as evidenced by his work. Most of the time he, as a military photojournalist, removes someone else’s grief.

HOW TO CREATE A HISTORICAL PICTURE “THEN NOW” AND ANIMATED GIF

Then-and-now images are much more than just a funny picture. They allow you to visually show how a place has changed over time, which is why such photos are an interesting way to feel the connection with history.

Reflections are generated by the light source. However, it should not be displayed in the frame. Consider, for example, a landscape photograph of a small alpine lake reflecting the silhouettes of dark trees surrounding it.

When creating such a scene, you must be careful not to let the sun get into the frame, otherwise it will be reflected in the lake and thereby simply ruin the picture. The sun will significantly reduce the reflection of the main element and the contrast of the scene, which will make your reflection almost completely unreadable.

Based on the particular scene being shot, adjust your own position or the position of your camera, make sure that you do not let the sun into the frame.
