Magmod Magring for Magbox

Subscribe The Magmod Magring for Magbox is an alternative method of mounting the Magbox to lights. In fact, unlike my previous video where I mounted the Magbox to my Godox strobes which are a Bowens mount, this Magring is meant for two small strobes. As you’ll see, I’m mounting two NIkon SB800 flashes into the Magring. Transcription was done by Temi.com which means it’s an AI generated transcript.

Magmod Magbox Review and Setup

The Magmod Magbox is one of the coolest designs for a softbox. I mean, it’s a softbox, so nothing new there. But the way it mounts, setups and breaks down, is so simple. The way a gel is used is so simple. The way you put on the diffusion screens are brilliant. Subscribe Transcription was done by Temi.com which means it’s an AI generated transcript.

Meet Chester Williams

Our current print sale is a little unusual in that Chester Williams, the photographer, is a TOP reader I didn't know at all before he submitted his picture to one of our "group shows," the so-called Baker's Dozens. I don't know if there's any such thing as a "typical" TOP reader...to paraphrase Garrison Keillor, all TOP readers are strong, good-looking and above average! But he was just a regular reader whose name I didn't recognize. So I asked him if he'd write about himself by way of introduct...

Is B&H Payboo Worth It?

B&H Photo Superstore in New York City announced Payboo. It’s a credit card backed by Synchrony Bank which offers customers the ability to get back their sales tax by the way of rewards. It means that if your state’s sales tax is 6% then your rewards is 6%, if it’s 10% then your reward is 10%. The reward is used as statement credit. Know that the APR of the credit card is 29.99%. Instead, I recommend checking out my project Photo Idō which offers photographers the ability to save at local indepen...

Adobe Renames Lightroom Again

Adobe has done it again. Adobe renamed Lightroom Again. First Adobe renamed Lightroom to Lightroom Classic CC. Then they released a “light” version of Lightroom and called it Lightroom CC (instead of Lightroom Elements). Now, almost two years later, Adobe is renaming Lightroom Classic CC to Lightroom Classic. Turns out, since recording this rant/video, Adobe also decided to change the name of Lightroom CC to just Lightroom. Which makes a complete 360, since the original name of Lightroom Clas...

Quick Tip – Reverse The Light

Since switching to the Nikon Z6, and using it in place of a webcam for screencast and desk filmed videos I’ve noticed two things. 1. A purple hue on my face2. The ring light is more pronounced in my glasses It took a while, but I finally did something about it. I reversed the right light so it’s no longer lighting me directly. It’s not bouncing off the wall. Subscribe Transcription was done by Temi.com which means it’s an AI generated transcript. The transcript may contain spelling...

Interview: Photographer Alexi Lubomirski at the Movado Group Davos Summit

The founder of Creatives4Change is now helping to design watches for social good Earlier this year, the Movado Group announced that they’d tapped fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski to create a vegan watch strap (available in the fall), as part of its latest entry in their iconic Artist Series.

Magnum's Magnificent Steve McCurry Sale

Steve McCurry, Young man walks behind elephant. Sri Lanka, 1995. In honor of the publication of the retrospective Steve McCurry: A Life in Pictures in 2018, Magnum Photos is having a grand McCurry print sale. The 2016 McCurry controversy might mean he's better thought of nowadays as a photo-illustrator than a straight journalist (as he was when his medium was Kodachrome—you recall he was chosen to shoot the ceremonial last-ever roll), but he's certainly a spectacularly brilliant one, working t...

Garry Winogrand on PBS

I'm sorry I had to take the past few days off...needed some mental health time (or maybe just plain health time...I slept 12 hours Thursday night! I didn't know I could still do that). But the comments are now all posted for the Ricoh GR III and the "Proper Attitude Toward Tech" posts. I'm also desperately apologetic that I forgot to mention this in advance of Friday evening when it was broadcast...there's a new "American Masters" documentary about Garry Winogrand on PBS (Public Broadcasting Se...

Challenge Yourself with Peter McKinnon and Edgar Wright

Peter McKinnon is a photographer and filmmaker from Canada. He’s quite popular on YouTube if you didn’t already know. Peter published a video on YouTube teaching how to do the Quick-Cut Technique like Edgar Wright. Edgar Wright is an English director, screenwriter, producer, and actor known for Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Ant-Man, and many other great films. Edgar Wright uses the Quick-Cut Technique often and does it, pushing the limits, to make his work stand out. So Peter McKinnon...

Has Photography Gotten Too Easy?

Is photography too easy? Maria Popova—along with Virginia Woolf(!)—suspects that maybe it has. Their point is that when something is rare and valued, more effort and care is expended on it. By becoming thoughtless and easy, it also becomes trivial and devalued. Maria, the Bulgarian writer who pens the famous Brain Pickings site, first quotes Virginia Woolf, the great author and woman of letters: The Victorian age killed the art of letter writing by kindness: it was only too easy to catch the pos...

Tommy Brown

Photographer Tommy Brown at his exhibition Neil Swanson wrote in the Comments the other day: Fifty years of shooting in formats from 35mm to 8x10, 22 years of making my living with a camera and what do I miss? Prints. I just don’t print or pay someone else to. It’s not a photo till it’s a print, and yet I’ve got no idea what to do with dozens of boxes of prints I did make and nobody ever sees. But I miss prints. I know what Neil means. I realize it anew every time I get to see great photograp...

Felicities of the Smartphone (Guest Post)

Words and pictures by Mark Power The TOP post from the other day, "The Most Amazing Thing About Photography Circa 2019," is a wonderful reflection on the growing acceptability of the cellphone camera. Mike's experiences with analog photography bought back a lot of memories because they exactly parallel my own experiences back in the day. Some time ago, I realized that everything I learned from doing analog photography has mostly disappeared from my conscious memory. A while ago, a student who h...

Mirrorless Camera – My Move to the Nikon Mirrorless Camera System

Ever since Sony released their first full-frame mirrorless camera in 2013 I have been wanting to make the switch from DSLR to mirrorless. But I did not want to switch to Sony, for a handful of reasons. Over the years I’ve tried a bunch of mirrorless cameras, both full frame and cropped: Leica M9, Sony A7II, Sony A7R, Fuji XT-1, and the Panasonic GH-5. Due to my dislike of all the mirrorless cameras I tried, I stuck with my Nikon D850 for video and still work. Until the Nikon Z series was rele...
