Hi, my name is Robert Callahan. I’m a photographer living in Los Angeles, California. In addition to shooting events, portraits, weddings, and more for clients around LA,
I run a personal lifestyle/travel photography project called Deep Focus that focuses on getting out there and exploring my favorite places through photos and videos.
One of my passions is finding new ways to improve my photography skills so that each time I shoot or edit a photo or video it’s better than last time.

1 Learn The Basics And Use Your Camera’s Manual Mode: If you want to learn about all sorts of advanced techniques for editing or enhancing images, you’ll need to put in hours and hours of practice.
If learning is what really gets your creative juices flowing however then perhaps it might be more worthwhile to start with learning the basics first instead.
Robert Callahan, the editor of Cinampeoples, had some time to share his best photography tips and tricks that he learned from years of experience in the photography industry.
From working as a photographer and cinematographer to managing photoshoots, Robert has a wide array of knowledge that many professionals can benefit from learning about.
It all started back in 2001 when I purchased my first digital camera. It was a Nikon Coolpix 2000; it used Compact Flash cards, had a 2-megapixel sensor, and took VGA-quality video.
It served me well for several years until a combination of lackluster photo quality (for its day) and mediocre battery life forced me to switch to something else. In 2005, I bought an Olympus C-720 Ultra Zoom for one simple reason: it could zoom up to 38x.
Like a lot of people, I took thousands upon thousands of photos over my first few years with that camera. It was fun, but it was also frustrating.
Since I was buying so many memory cards (and occasionally replacing batteries) just to take a handful of photos, there weren’t a lot of reasons for me to be picky about what shots I took or how they came out.
