A Beginner’s Guide to Adobe Lightroom: Part 1 – Fstoppers

Saturday, September 23, 2017

It is easy to feel overwhelmed with the many different features of Adobe Lightroom. Lightroom has so many possibilities, that even after years of using it, I still am consistently learning something new. I have found that there are so many new photographers who either feel too overwhelmed to start learning the intensive software, or they still aren’t confident that they have been using it correctly. Because of this, I…

Pete Turner, Whose Color Photography Could Alter Reality, Dies at 83 – New York Times

Friday, September 22, 2017

At sunup he moved to the backyard to photograph the volcanic explosion. “New Dawn,” one of Mr. Turner’s phantasmagorical pictures, portrays lava in shades of yellow, orange and red, spraying in a fluid arc as if an unseen hand were directing it leftward over the volcano. By underexposing his shots, he made the colors become more saturated. Advertisement Continue reading the main story “It was like being in the center…

Stop Asking About Camera Settings – PetaPixel (blog)

Friday, September 22, 2017

Photographer Tony Northrup wants you to stop asking photographers about their camera settings. In this 7-minute video, he explains why the camera settings that were used for an image are relatively unimportant and a distraction from the real work that goes into making a shot. To illustrate the argument, Northrup uses the example of an image he took of an osprey swooping down to catch a fish out of the…

Xbox One gets third-party camera support for game streaming – Engadget

Friday, September 22, 2017

Mixer, formerly known as Beam, lags far behind Twitch in popularity. For most streamers, then, this new feature will be fairly insignificant. Still, it’s a welcome addition, and one that could persuade a few extra players to try Microsoft’s streaming platform. Should that happen, it could also persuade Twitch, YouTube, Facebook and others to patch in similar support. That would help Microsoft and — were the same features to be…

Review: Leica Sofort – WIRED

Friday, September 22, 2017

When the Leica Sofort was announced last year, I was sure it was a hoax perpetrated by a savvy Photoshopper with too much time on her hands. Leica, the company best known for its high-end shooters, making a camera out of plastic? It seemed like a perfect joke, like if Bugatti rolled out a hatchback commuter car.   But, here we are. Leica released the Sofort to stores last November….

Yashica to Unleash an ‘Unprecedented Camera’ in October 2017 – PetaPixel (blog)

Friday, September 22, 2017

Starting in early August, the iconic Japanese camera brand Yashica began teasing a big “coming chapter” in its life. While some people dismissed it as hype for a new clip-on smartphone lens, it now appears it’s much more than that: Yashica is now teasing an “unprecedented camera.” The company just released yet another enigmatic video (shown above), titled “The Prologue.” The only useful bits information contained in the video are…

Here are the first photographer-shot iPhone 8 pictures – Mashable

Friday, September 22, 2017

It’s barely past the morning of the Apple iPhone 8 launch, and pro photographers have already posted some sweet shots taken with the new handset. As it’s done with the iPhones before this, Apple has continually tweaked and improved its cameras. The iPhone 8 and larger 8 Plus lenses are the same as their predecessors, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, respectively. But it’s put the upgrade in a new…

Why Being Pickier Will Make You a Better Photographer – Fstoppers

Friday, September 22, 2017

The vast majority of photographers often flounder in a state of perpetual mediocrity wondering why their photos aren’t getting better. They invest thousands of dollars in gear along with hundreds of hours of practice only to see what amounts to the most minimal of improvements. One of the most often overlooked characteristics of great shooters is that they never complacently accept that “good enough” is an acceptable metric in relation…

Sigma’s Marvelous ‘sd Quattro H’: Seeing Reality – Barron’s

Friday, September 22, 2017

The world of conventional digital photography continues to evolve even as Apple (AAPL) dazzles us with the latest innovations in its iPhone. I’ve been testing some of the best digital cameras of late. I wrote about Sony’s (SNE) excellent A9 a month ago, and the Hasselblad “medium-format” X1Din January. But my favorite digital photography system is from a Japanese, privately held company, Sigma, which is famous for its lenses that many Canon and…

The Keepers of the Canon – Slate Magazine

Thursday, September 21, 2017

That’s no small task for any franchise, but Trekkies in particular are a notoriously detail-oriented bunch, and Trek’s canon, while now officially comprising its six (soon to be seven) television series and 13 films, has been adjusted many times over the course of Star Trek’s 50-odd years, at times incorporating parts of the various novelizations, tie-in books, video games, board games, and reference material that the franchise has inspired. (The…

Stop Giving Free Photography Services to Friends and Family – Fstoppers

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Photography is a commodity; It’s not a secret, and we all know it. When I meet a new group of people, it seems that every time the conversation of “jobs” or “careers” is brought up, inevitably, someone is always a “photographer” by trade. Commodification is a process that happens to every industry, and we couldn’t prevent it even if we tried. So since becoming a commodity is unavoidable in any market,…
