Welcome to another Wednesdays with Westcott, a new SCU series, guaranteed to help you become a better photographer. We're hitting tight versus wide angle portraits today with one of my favorite educators Sal Cincotta. Sal never does anything halfway. In just four minutes in the video below, he shares an incredible amount of information, taking you through not only what he's doing but why.
We're into spring seasonality with better weather in most of the country, giving so many of you a chance to be shooting outdoors again. Regardless of your core specialty, it's essential to understand the elements for great portraiture including lighting and posing. Pay attention to Sal's tips, including his composition in wanting to take advantage of all the vertical lines in the woods.
And, if you're with Sal at ShutterFest this week, wander over to the Westcott booth and check out some of the finest lighting gear in professional photography. Plus, Westcott's team should be in your network. They're talented, passionate about imaging, and always available to help you raise the bar on the quality of your images.
And check out the Westcott U website - it's loaded with great content covering virtually every area of photography. And their YouTube channel is also chocked full. It's all just a click away on the WU logo below.

Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
