How To Take Better Photographs

Larry Lourcey

Hi and welcome to my blog!I do my best
to keep things updated and give you a look at things happening behind the scenes here at Lourcey Photography. Although I've been a professional photographer for over 20 years, I'm also semi-famous for my pizza and bread making. So follow along and enjoy the adventure. And don't be afraid to leave a comment and say hello!

Do you want to get better at photography? It doesn’t matter if you a seasoned pro or a brand-new-just-bought-a-camera newbie. We ALL want to get better. Here’s your chance.

Viva Mexico!

This fall, I’m taking a group of photographers to Riviera Maya, Mexico for four days of photography in a fun, relaxed environment. It doesn’t matter if you have a $5000 DSLR or just your iPhone – the concepts we go over will apply to everyone. We are also keeping the group really small, so I will have plenty of time to work one-on-one with each photographer. It is going to be an incredible trip!

The Hotel

El Dorado Royale Mexico

We will be staying at the El Dorado Royale in Riviera Maya. I spent a few days there earlier this month, scouting locations for our trip. This place is absolutely first class! The rooms are beautiful, the food is incredible and the service is better than being at Disney. Trust me- it is a phenomenal location, so be sure to bring a friend or spouse. They can lounge on the beach while we create some dazzling images.

Relax!

Don’t worry, it won’t be all work and no play. Far from it! We are going to build in plenty of free time for you to relax on the beach with a drink and do absolutely nothing. No sense wasting all that incredible food.

Get Ready To Learn

We will learn how to get the most out of whatever camera you use. We will even spend some time doing iPhotography with our phones. The course will be tailored to YOUR individual needs, so we will make SURE you go go home a better photographer than you were when you arrived.

Off The Record: Cris Joel

Off The Record For this cover, I took on the album cover of one of my all-time favorite albums:  Billy Joel’s Greatest Hits Vol 1 and 2.  When photographer Cris Duncan suggested the cover, I knew it was one that I wanted to work on! How It Happened Cris is located in Lubbock, Texas – which would hav...

Blast from the Past

Blast from the Past

Every year, I teach a darkroom class to 8th graders at The Westwood School in Dallas. Although it is truly a dying art, I think there is still a lot to be learned from the whole development process. You have to work to get a nice image and can’t just shoot 1000 shots and hope to get a good one.  Whi...

Off The Record: Les Adorables

The Next Album As we work our way through the Off The Record Project, I thought it was time to mix in a fairly modern album – a movie soundtrack actually.  While the Les Miserables soundtrack isn’t necessarily an “iconic” album, it is definitely a very recognizable cover.  On top of that, it is actu...
