The latest video from Mango Street is on a popular topic that all photographers have struggled with at some point: how to shoot better photos in low light. Yes, we all probably think we can shoot fine photos in low light thanks to the latest digital cameras that can capture lower noise images at high ISOs. But there’s more to it than just depending on your camera gear.

For the past 30 years, my great passion has been to travel to the world’s most remote and beautiful places on earth telling stories with my camera. I spend weeks at a time immersing myself into the landscapes and with the people who inhabit these lands.

When I’m looking at ways to do a specific task my brain often reverts to Occam’s razor. (Occam was a logician and Franciscan friar in the 14th century.) The way I interpret it, is that if there are many ways to do something the easiest and most direct method is usually correct. It’s the KIS principle and keeping it simple works best for me. Like most people, especially those of us who are self employed, there aren’t enough hours in the day, so I’m extremely concerned about workflow and just how much time each project is going to take. If I have a task, like organizing and editing my work, that I can do one way that takes an hour and another that takes 30 minutes, I’ll take the 30 minute option every time. With all that said, I’ll explain how I handle a portrait session, from the original shoot to ordering the final images. It may or may not fit your way of doing things, but just keep my buddy Occam in mind and remember there’s more to life than sitting in front of a computer.

We’re all familiar with the notion that lenses in the 85-105mm range are the best choices for portrait photography, supposedly because of the “natural” way they render a subject’s facial features. But in the video below, you’ll see why one pro prefers to use a longer telephoto zoom for portraiture.

One simple method of adding impact to portraits is to frame your subjects with natural or man-made objects. The “frame” you use can be something as simple as a window, doorway, arch, or the overhanging branches of a tree.

For those of you who have never worked in medium format, trust me, there is a difference you can see and feel. It’s no wonder that photographers such as Douglas Sonders choose a medium format camera system over a DSLR for the bulk of their work. And in Sonders’s case, his workhorse camera system is Phase One.

Many street shooters have an obstacle to overcome before they can master the craft, and that’s getting over a feeling of shyness when photographing strangers. Making photos on the street is all about capturing fleeting moments—you see something awesome, but if you don’t act fast, it’s gone. And if you’re beset by reticence, and tend to hesitate, you’ll often miss a great shot
