Welcome to our church

Sorry we don’t do that anymore…..

Well folks it’s official… After 17 years we’ve decided to take a break from shooting weddings..  Thats right we don’t book weddings anymore.  WHY??  well it’s simple I have a family.. they miss me.. go figure.  As you can guess weddings 99.9 percent of the time happen on Saturday.  I have two sons that are growing up toooooo fast.  I was missing to much by always being busy all day on too many Saturdays.  Will I shoot them again in the future? Possibly!  For now I’m still doing family and senior portraits and also doing some awesome video projects.

Photo Tips from Shreveport Photographer Tom Spayth “cheap and easy insurance for your camera”

So you bought a shiny new camera… Naturally your eager to get out and use it but you want to take care of it to. One thing you should consider to protect your lens is a UV filter. If you see threads on the front of your lens (not the fabric kind.. the screw something on kind) your in luck. typically you’ll find the size of filters your lens will accept written on it somewhere. It be a number with a little circle and a slash Thu it in front of it and is followed by MM (millimeter). Keep in mind you get what you pay for cheap glass can hinder picture quality, but a decent filter is a lot cheaper than a scratch on a new lens…

Wedding Reflections by Spayth Photography & Cinema in Shreveport

So I admit it… Some times I dream about Photo & Video Shoots.. Some times their past shoots.. Some times their future shoots. This morning I woke from a dream of a recent shoot.. The only problem is the photo didn’t look like it did in my dream. I had dreamed of the photo above. but what I shot looked like the photo below. Fortunately, Photoshop can make dreams come true 🙂

Photography Tips from Shreveport wedding photographer / videographer Spayth Photography & Cinema

Do your pictures not look as clear as you’d think they should? When is the last time you cleaned your lens? A dirty lens can make a huge difference on everything from your DSLR to your ipone camera. Now before you grab the windex and dish rag you should know there is a right way and wrong way to clean your lens. First I like to blow the larger dirt and dust off with a blower. Now You may be wondering why not just use your breath to blow off the offending debris from your camera. Thats simple… SPIT.. there I said it.. 🙂 Its can be hard to blow and not get a little of yourself on your expensive camera at the same time. I’m sorry to say your saliva doesn’t dry spot free and it will leave streaks. If your serious about taking clear pictures I suggest investing in a good blower. When it comes to a good blower size matters! I use this one from B&H the Giottos Rocket Air Blower.If you don’t have a blower (yet) try one of those little bulbs you use to clean a babies nose with (I suggest washing it first). The point is to get the larger more abrasive particles off before you start wiping your lens. The next thing you’ll need is a micro fiber cloth made for cleaning lens. Their cheap and easy to find at any camera department, even the one at Walmarts. The key is they’re soft and they won’t damage your lens. I always have one on me when I’m shooting. So now you have your lens all spot free and clean so what do you do then. You put your dirty dusty lens cap that has lint and who knows what else on it that you shoved in your pocket. This is a step a lot of people miss. Give your lens cap a good blowing off so that dirt doesn’t transfer to your pristine lens and please please always use a lens cap when your not shooting. That way next time you pull of the lens cap your ready to go.

Shreveport based Spayth Photography & Cinema prepares for a shot in the dark.

Shreveport-Panoramic

Capturing a balance of light and shadow is a corner stone of great photography.. So what do you do when a bride wants her Love Story video and portraits shot at night so you can see the city lights in the back ground. At night the balance of light and shadow heavily favors shadow 🙂 . Simple, you give her what she wants. It’s a bit tricky, but with professional gear and experience its very possible. After all shouldn’t a bride have what she wants for her wedding? The Picture above is from some test shots we took in preparing for this shoot.
