Title: Beat-Boxed.Dynamic Range in Photography
Dynamic range describes the ratio between the maximum and minimum measurable light intensities (think in terms of black and white). In the real world, one never encounters a true white or true black - only varying degrees of light source in tensity and the subjects reflectivity. The concept of dynamic range becomes more complicated, and depends on whether you are describing a capture device (camera/scanner), a display (monitor/screen), or the subject itself. Not to mention the human eye can actually perceive a greater dynamic range than is ordinarily possible with a camera.
When one talks about the dynamic range of a photo it can mean many things… from tones, lighting and color depth but for me I like to think of it as the overall finished presentations your image portrays to its audience. When people say “that image really pops!” it goes hand in hand with a good dynamic range.If you take photos, whether it’s for personal, hobby or profession I would recommend you take the time to dive into researching dynamic range. Make an assignment of it and practice it. You have nothing to loose, yet so much more to gain.
My 2 cents… take it or leave it!

Title: The BEATS Down.I define a portrait as an intentionally posed subject where the face is the focal point or dominant part of the image. This of a studio shot or head shot… or even your last family portrait. Those are all examples of what I call a textbook portrait. If the portrait conveys some sort of emotion or feeling - then that is a secondary bonus.A candid, on the other hand, is an impromptu photo that is unplanned, un-posed, and can be fleeting. By all means, a face can be the dominating subject of the candid photo and it can also convey feelings/emotions. But it is the unplanned, un-posed aspect of the photo that separates if from a portrait. The candid portrait captures not only a face, but it capture the emotion of the surroundings. It tells the story from cover to cover.
