Finding Details

Corey Rich explains how to capture fine details in your photography.


AdoramaTV presents Getting the Shot with Corey Rich

All good stories have great details—and typically, those details are what we never forget. And this remains true even when it comes to telling stories with our cameras.

In this Tech Tip, photographer and director Corey Rich remains on location with fly fisherwoman, Amy McCormick, and finds himself with a bunch of daylight left—which, of course, means more shooting!

Learn how to create and deliver a complete picture package that tells the whole story. The trick is to start thinking about capturing three important perspectives: the wide, establishing shot; the medium shot; and the all-important detail shot. And when it comes to the latter, Corey gives you tips on his go-to detail lens, the importance of backlighting your subject, and how to think about your foreground, mid-ground and background.

The result is the capturing of one of the most important pieces of the storytelling package: the detail shot! Whether you're shooting for your own personal photo album, or delivering a selection of images to a major magazine, this Tech Tip will get you thinking about how to better communicate a story that we won't soon forget.
