1915 Armenian Genocide - April 24, 2009 March in Hollywood, CA

Hi everyone. I’d like to share with you a personal and special day for me with images I took. There are many and I will post some, but if you would like to take a look, I have created a photo gallery. Iy would mean a lot to me. The song is a famous Armenian singer and they are singing about the capital of Armenia, “Yerevan”.

Many of you already know I am Armenian and Assyrian. This day was special to me and my family.

In 1915, in Turkey, many Armenians and Assyrians were murdered. It is called the Armenian Genocide. Many countries, including ours refuse to recognize that very day as a Genocide for political reasons.

Photoshop Trick to Take a Vertical Composition and Make it Horizontal Without Losing Pixels or Subject's Size!!

Ok, I thought I’d give back what I’ve learned since so many people on the Internet have helped me out! If you already know this and I’m the only one who just figured it out recently, then I’ll slap myself silly and call it a day LOL.

Today, I’d like to show you how to get the most in terms of pixels on your subject, without cropping or enlarging the actual subject. We all know that when you crop an image, you lose pixels, when you enlarge, you may get blur depending on the software you use. I use Photoshop CS and CS4 (recently got).

Let’s take this picture as an example.

It’s a nice tight shot taken vertically with some white space all around her. I have learned to frame my subjects like this and ensure I have space all around, because later I ca…

Featured Works !!! :)

Hi all. I’m very happy to report some more features the last 2 weeks or so. I am very happy and appreciative of some (well all) of these works, as they have been like a milestone I passed in terms of both technical and creative aspects. Well, not super creative, but creative enough for me, as I’ve always stated I’m not to creative, just pretty good at capturing life as it happens. Thanks so much to all of you for your support and motivation!

Studio Flash: Alien Bees vs. Continuous

So I have a great set of daylight running 40 inch softbox incredible continuous lights. These are the first that give me enough power and color temperature comparable to flash. I can actually shoot at iso 100 and over 125 shutter speed. Those using continuous will know that it is difficult to shoot at high shutter speeds when using continuous lights. But I have a decent pair that cost me over 1,000, not to mention the set I have from before that cost me 500.00! Both I haven’t even had for one year. They were great starting lights for training and what not. They are actually great lighting even for now. MY light heads have 4 bulbs at 250 watts each and very high lumen and they are not YELLOW or HOTTT!!

But, I have just become the proud owner of several Alien Bees B1600 monolights. Th…

Great News: Studio Space!!

Ok, so for the last month or so, I’ve been looking for a space where I can get off my lazy but and stop “doing” and “learning” photography online or by books. I thought in my mind, I know so much and have shot several photoshoots, but never with a full setup, never learned entirely, as I am self taught all the way! I’m just missing the hands on experience, so I can be confident and have that experience. Not to mention, build my portfolio!

So I came up with Jen’s PHOTO BOOTCAMP for myself!! I thought hey if I can find a large space where I can have all my lights setup and go everyday, I’m bound to come out better in 30 days! RIGHT? RIGHT!

So I found the most perfect space. It’s a 20×20 400 square foot storage, like a bonus room un…
