One of my favorite things on the planet is Photoshop World.  In fact I’ve gone 20 times to it. Yes it’s about Photoshop… but also Lightroom, and lighting, and shooting, and gear, and business.  How’d you like to learn from these great folks?

As you read this, think back to when you were beginning photography…  I’m sure you’d be able to relate to this to yourself (or your friend) and hopefully laugh (and not cry). Alright, so this list may not be super accurate and is in no particular order, but, I think it is safe to say […]

More often than not when shooting in the mixed light of partially-shaded areas, such as under canopy or near water where available light can be a spotty mixture of shadow and highlight, it can be difficult to locate a neutral tone on which to meter an accurate exposure.  Seasoned shooters will typically carry a gray […]

Your camera offers a lot of settings to make shooting easier.  While I’m personally a fan of Aperture priority mode (where you set the depth of field and let the camera do the most of the rest) I also find Shutter Priority (or Time Value) Mode quite useful. In this shooting mode, you tell the camera […]

Editor’s Note: Welcome to new Photofocus contributor Mark Morrow — http://www.markmorrowphotography.com. Outdoor events can be challenging to capture in a way that is meaningful, or that equals the experience from a competitor’s perspective.  Aside from the well-deserved physical rewards, event sports like mountain bike racing and endurance running (etc) can be thankless work for the athlete […]

It’s rare that I step up on my soap box about gear… after all to each their own.  But this one is just a pet peeve as it causes so many potential problems. The lens hood doesn’t point this way when the lens is out of your camera bag! Hoods are reversed when packing the […]

Knowledge is not skill. Knowledge plus ten thousand times is skill. — Shinichi Suzuki The idea of 10,000 repetitions as a path to mastery is not new. It has been a principle of Eastern thought for a very long time and has been made popular in business by Malcolm Gladwell and in photography by Steve Simon. […]

Chromatic

Nikon D800, 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens @ 28mm, f/11, 7 frame HDR, finished in Photomatix Pro. Chromatic aberration may show up as a colored halo in your images, usually surrounding a dark object placed against a bright background, like a mountain against the sky. In my experience, the color is usually pink or green or […]

My last post showed why it’s difficult to get the exposure right with the reflective meters in our cameras. They measure the light without being able to differentiate whether a subject is bright, dark or in-between. This one is how to get accurate exposures every time. The trick is to measure light before it hits […]

Nikon D800, 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens @28mm, f/16, 3 frame HDR, ISO 400. It’s a good idea to have a list of the minimum required gear you’ll need every time you shoot, and to run through that list before you head out the door. I’ve made mine super basic, and I’ve got it committed to […]
