Behind The Lens - Matt Saatich

Back in 2009, Matt Saatchi was shredding on his BMX bike, chasing adrenaline and bashing through the majestic landscape. Then there was a moment, one single monumental moment he captured that inspired him to create rather than be dictated to. It’s the moment that lead to his senior year being spent in the dark room developing action, portrait, and darkroom photography that has lead him to this moment. Now, we’re happy to announce that Matt is part of the inaugural episode of the #AOV #behindthelens series

Simple Digital Photo Tips

PREVENT FEATURELESS PHOTOS

Photos taken near water (or snow) run the risk of underexposure. An underexposed image lacks contrast and looks grey and washed out. A camera’s light meter is thrown off by a highly reflective surface. Behave counter-intuitively; turn the flash On when taking your picture. Or leave it in automatic full power mode or in a “fill-flash” mode. The flash helps to neutralize the highly reflective surfaces, reducing backlight and underexposure problems. Another tip from an earlier column is to set the automatic camera exposure to “cloudy” when shooting on the beach in full sun. It will add a subtle pink cast to sand that would otherwise look grey.”

Behind The Lens - Eric Ward

There is endless inspiration surrounding me every day.”  That statement is matter of fact for Eric Ward (@littlecoal) who isn’t surrounded by mountain ranges, coastlines or a major metropolitan city. @littlecoal resides in the Northwest of Ohio, and even though his rise to visual prominence has and will provide him opportunities to shoot any cityscape or coastline he’d imagine he reminds us that no matter where we are, it’s the endless adventures with the ones we love that fulfill the innate “desire to find beauty in the ordinary.”
