Photography Tips from Carhartt Photographer

Welcome behind the scenes of Crafted in Carhartt in Washington DC. Here are a few things I’ve learned taking pictures over the years. Hopefully a few of these tips can help you out.

  • Clouds are your friends. Overcast skies provide great light coverage without the shadows of direct sunlight.
  • Try out new angles. Be daring and climb on things. Lie down or kneel on the ground. You’ll see your subject in a whole new way.
  • Candid photos are more compelling. Posed pictures don’t feel as authentic as photos that capture people in their element.
  • Ditch cheesy editing tricks. A lot of times preset editing filters and effects look cheap and unprofessional.
  • When it comes to composition, be aware of everything. The background can be just as important as the subject.
  • Change up your subjects. Look at the things around you in a different light. You’ll learn to see beauty in everything.
  • Experiment! Never be afraid to do something wrong. The trash bin is a very underrated tool.

Photography can be whatever you make it. For me, it’s photographing some of the more interesting ladies around. I get dirty, I climb on roofs, I sit in piles of mud, I scale silos, etc… The Carhartt Women’s Force Performance Tank is exactly what I need for work. It’s stain resistant, odor blocking, and sweat wicking technology helps me out on all fronts. That way I can focus on the work and not on staying clean. Give it a try! Once you get Force you’ll never go back.

Carhartt is proud to be an American company. Just check out the store in Woodbridge, VA. Its military theme pays respect to the 3 nearby bases. The store is full of Carhartt goodies and rare collectables. It’s cool to see a retail location that reflects the community so well.

Meet the Bumper Jacksons. Their trad jazz and pre-war country music paint’s America’s early history. The Bumper Jacksons boldly and elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, DIY style. This duo is a Carhartt sorta bunch. They even camp out after playing at events and do three week long biking music tours.

Jess constructs all of her own washboards. Each one is a playable instrument and hangable piece of art. She also gives washboard lessons. I got to try my hand at a few tunes, and it was a blast.
