am always interested in reading about adventure and travel photography. I have numerous books and videos on the subject, and today I am reviewing for you all a book by adventure photographer Leo Edwards. It is a short e-book titled “The Adventure Photography Handbook”.
Photography Blogger has launched a new iPhone and iPad app called InstaPicMix. While there are a lot of collage apps on the market, this one is simply the best one we’ve found. Why? Because of the following reason:
In this week’s Rapid Review, we take a look at the Snaptrack Cinerails Dolly System. An incredibly portable, cheap, and simple solution to your dolly needs. We love it, and we’ll tell you why.
There are plenty of ways to market your business; and with limited time and resources, it’s hard to determine which ones are worth pursuing. The argument for Email Marketing Campaigns is that Google search algorithms change, social networks come and go, but people will always check their email. This is why it’s important to at least consider a newsletter service. It’s easier than you think and often times it can be free.
I recently traded in my studio lights for a speedlight based system. I have not been doing much studio work and they were literally sitting in my garage collecting dust. So, I traded them in and got a new (to me) lens, some speedlight light modifiers, and a few cheap Yongnuo YN-460II speedlights to join my YN-56o.
We have been using this docking station for a couple of months now, and it has performed flawlessly! One of the great things about docking stations such as this one is that the drives are hot-swappable. This means that, as long as you follow your operating system’s proper “eject” procedures as directed,
In this video, we will demonstrate how to upgrade your hard drive and RAM in the Asus G75VW. One of the major benefits of the Asus “Republic of Gamers” line of machines is that they are very, very easy to upgrade.
If you are like me and do not have the luxury of a dedicated studio space then you likely use speedlights for your artificial lighting needs. One of the best modifiers for any sort of artificial light are softboxes. The problem with standard softboxes is that they can be a pain to setup and not very speedlight friendly. A great alternative to your standard softboxes are these Umbrella Softboxes, another plus is that they are designed to be used with speedlights.
Nikon seems to be the champion of “trickle-down features”. What does that mean? Over the ~4 generations of Nikon DSLRs that have come out in the past decade or so, Nikon has had the habit of taking flagship features from their high-end pro cameras, and putting those features in the more affordable model cameras. When the Nikon D300 came out along side the flagship D3, it was a $1800 camera with roughly the same autofocus system as a $5,000 camera.
I’ve recently reviewed the Fuji X-Pro 1 followed by Sigma’s DP2 Merrill. Both cameras have innovative APSc sensors and incredible image quality. To return to a compact camera sized Bayer sensor was always going to mean a noticeable drop in image quality. But testing the far more affordable Pentax MX-1, I’ve had a lot of fun. Let’s find out why.
I stumbled across Tony Northrup’s Channel early last year and immediately subscribed to his channel after watching one of his videos. Through these videos, I discovered that he has also written a book titled, “How to Create: Stunning Digital Photography”.
Question: Are all RAW image qualities and file sizes created equal? As a Nikon user, I’ve asked myself this question a few times over the years now because there are all kinds of RAW compression options. But on Canon DSLRs there is something different these days, there is mRAW.
