One very useful feature inside of Lightroom’s Library Module is the Survey mode. This is a fantastic tool to use when you have a photo-shoot filled with many similar images, and you need to edit them down to just a few keepers. I use this a lot with my food photography images, since I tend […]
Before Topaz Denoise After Topaz Denoise These are low-light, high-ISO image samples from the Fuji X100s. While the images from the Fuji X100s at ISO 3200 are great (considering the ISO) when you shoot with this or any other camera in a low-key situation, you will get the worst of it in the noise department.

In the USA we tend to take our safety and security for granted. But it’s becoming more apparent that’s no guarantee that we actually are safe. A video producer in Oakland, CA was beaten and robbed of his camera recently – and that’s just one example of what can happen, even if you’re in broad […]
