How to Capture Essence through Black & White Photography
By removing color altogether, the black & white photographer is able to reduce the image to its very essence. Proper lighting is essential when working with black & white images because all you have are light and the shades between grey and darkness.

7 Steps for Lighting a Scene Effectively
We all have different approaches for how we light a scene - from what lights we use to what lenses we choose; and from where we place talent to where we place the camera.

"What It is! '70s Analog Funk" Loop and Sample Collection from Sony Creative Software
reviewed by Chris Sanchez Great 70s sounds, and not just for Funk! I’ve been writing music for television shows and commercials since 1999, and in this line of work it’s invaluable to have a strong library of royalty-free loops and samples at your disposal. I’ve purchased dozens of such products over the years, and two of my all-time favorites are “Mick Fleetwood: Total Drumming” and “Drums From The Big Room: The Mixes,” both of which are published by Sony Creative Software (SCS).
