These 3 Ways Of Checking Exposure Are More Trustworthy Than The LCD

Digital cameras are brimming with all kinds of spectacular features that exist ostensibly to make a photographer’s life easier. From WiFi to in-body image stabilization to built-in panorama mode, some features are far more useful than others. One camera feature that is fundamental to digital camera technology is the rear LCD screen. The rear LCD has become indispensable for photographers, allowing us to see what we’ve shot immediately after an image has been captured. As wonderful a tool a...

Parachuting Drone Deemed Safe for Large Crowds

One of the most common uses for drone technology is monitoring crowds. Whether it is for entertainment or emergency personnel use, unmanned aerial vehicles are real game changers when it comes to providing a cheap, efficient way to get surveillance from the air. The only problem with all of this is that it has to be done in as safe a way as possible – and that’s often easier said than done when you’re talking about flying a drone above large crowds of people.

Miami Beach Starts Using Blimps After Florida Drone Ban Comes Into Effect

Drones get a bad rap, that’s for sure, but they offer a lot of advantages in certain areas. One of those is helping police and emergency personnel. Image via Pixabay from Pexels.com. But a recent law in Florida banning the use of drones in monitoring private citizens has caused the police department there to get a little creative. In fact, they’re bringing back an old – but classic – technology to help them get around the Freedom from Unwanted Surveillance Act, passed in 2015. FStoppers descri...

5 Easy To Achieve New Year’s Goals For Photographers

I’m not fond of New Year’s resolutions. I don’t bother making them and I’m not sure why anyone else does; there’s so much baggage and pressure tied up in the process of making and attempting to keep a resolution. It’s great to have goals, though. I suppose talking about the difference between goals and resolutions requires a tiny bit semantic wiggle room, but I believe the perceived weight of a word can sometimes have a significant impact on our actions. So forget about resolutions. Do you ...

Full-Frame 8K EOS R Coming Soon from Canon?

Canon shook up the world of 8K full-frame mirrorless cameras today when an interview with Yoshiyuki Mizoguchi, product guru for the Japanese optics giant, was printed in Imaging Resource in which Mizoguchi said that an 8K EOS R is in the works and on the way. Image viaMaurício Mascaro from Pexels.com. This came as shock because, as PetaPixel points out, Canon didn’t join the 4K mirrorless market until the EOS M50 in February of last year. An 8K EOS R this soon would mean that Canon isn’t fooli...

Six Things You Should Do After Getting Your First Camera

So, you were lucky enough to receive the gift that sat atop your wishlist: your first “real” camera. I’m not making a personal distinction about what’s a legitimate camera and what isn’t, but when people talk about getting their first real camera they usually mean a mirrorless or DSLR body that can accept different lenses. The thing about getting your first real camera is that mixed in with all the excitement is a tinge of anxiety — you’re about to step into a new dimension, but you don’t r...

Polar Bear Tries to Break Into Wildlife Photographer’s Pod Like a Kinder Egg and It’s All on Video

Wildlife photography has a way of “putting you right there” that makes some of us appreciative of the art but also wary of its dangers. And in today’s extra large helping of “Thanks, but no thanks,” a BBC wildlife video captured a polar bear trying to break open the journalist’s pod in order to eat him alive for better lack of a description. Image via Pixabay from Pexels.com. BBC filmmaker Gordon Buchanan was filming polar bears in Canada back in 2013 when the incident happened. Though it is a...

Getting Rid of Professional Photographers Leads to Poorer Quality Photos Self-Apparent Study Concludes

The past two decades were rough times for publishers. Many traditional media outlets have gone the way of the dinosaur with newsrooms being particularly hard hit. Image via Marek from Pexels.com. The future of journalism looked pretty bad. In fact, it wasn’t until recently that many old-line publications began making money again. Naturally, the success or failure of many is linked to a transition to “online” from print, but that’s only part of the story. Gutting the staff that produced high-qu...

Instagram Ditches Scrolling Images in Weird App Update

Sometimes an update literally changes everything. Anyone who has used Adobe products can tell you how devastating even a small change can be. Instagram’s latest update does just that – changes everything for no real, good reason from a user's perspective – ditching scrolling through images in favor of tapping through them. Image via FancyCrave.com from Pexels.com. You read that right. Instagram ditched the scrolling it has had since the beginning of time in favor of something many users liken ...

5 “Don’ts” That Will Make You A More Effective Street Photographer

In spite of declarations to the contrary, street photography is alive and continues to grow. How much of it meets the approval of so-called standard bearers is up for debate, but I think that’s ultimately a fruitless discourse. We should all expect street photography to change with the times. That, of course, doesn’t mean it can’t be good just because it changes. Exactly how does one achieve “good” street photography? One way of getting good at anything is to avoid the mistakes others have made....

DJI Announces New Pro Program

Companies love using the “pro” label to distinguish between customers that spend a lot and those who spend a whole lot. That might sound cynical, but it is often the case. Take Apple for example: Ostensibly the iMac Pro is for “professional” grade uses, but any examination of a regular iMac finds it is similarly capable. Maybe not as much so yet it calls into question the whole “pro” thing. Image via invisiblepower from Pexels.com. But DJI wants to make that label mean something and they’re go...

It (Sorta?) Finally Happened – Drone Collides with 737 Passenger Plane

Well, there’s no easy way to say it: It finally happened. Sorta. A drone and a passenger plane possibly hit each other during the plane’s landing procedure in Tijuana, Mexico. The investigation into the accident’s cause is still underway, but that didn’t stop the Internet from doing its own sleuthing initially. Image via Fancycrave.com from Pexels.com.

6 Reasons Why Film Photography Is On The Rise Again

When digital photography burst on the scene, it didn’t take very long for it to usurp the analog establishment. And, as is the tendency with technology, advancements in digital photography have moved forward at a blinding clip.

All These Worlds Are Yours, Except Europa: Epic Time-Lapse Shot in Space is Longest Ever Recorded

Time-lapse photography is some really cool stuff, but when you apply it to space, it becomes even more amazing, especially given the scale of things. Who doesn’t love to watch the light from distant stars blink into existence? And further, who doesn’t stand in awe of their luster, especially when compared with the lights from cities on the nearby Earth’s surface? The distances are so enormous between the two yet the light so similar in intensity – is this not truly what photography is all about?...

10 Tips For Epic Outdoor Portraits

Outdoor portraits aren't what most people think when they think of a portrait shoot. Most people will think ‘studio’ first when thinking about portraits.

So why not grab your camera and a willing subject and head outdoors? Here are some top tips to get some epic outdoor portraits. bruce mars at Pexels 1. Choose ...
