As photographers, we quickly learn to recognize the differences in lighting conditions. We all seek to shoot things in what we call “good light.” But what is good light, anyway? We’ve certainly heard of golden hour and blue hour, and you probably know that overcast skies and midday light aren’t always ideal. In today’s segment of The Sensor Plane, I’ll discuss some common lighting challenges and how to deal with them in the field.
In this episode of The Sensor Plane Photography Podcast, I wanted to discuss subject isolation as a creative technique. Getting those creamy smooth backgrounds isn’t as hard as you think, especially if you have the right gear. I find that even when shooting landscapes, sometimes it can be nice to soften the background a bit.
I had a chance to sit down with Tony Sweet for this episode of The Sensor Plane podcast. Tony and I discuss the recent advances in mirrorless camera systems; he’s started using the Fujifilm X Pro-1 and he recently took it on a photo workshop he led in Havana, Cuba.
Welcome to Episode 3 of The Sensor Plane photography podcast! Today, I’m talking tripods, heads, and why you need one. More importantly, I discuss the salient features to look for when choosing a tripod and head.
Today on the Sensor Plane I want to talk a little about an oft-overlooked creative tool: white balance. You can use the camera white balance setting to change the mood and feel of your images both directly in camera or in post. While it’s important to get proper white balance in your shots, remember that if you shoot in RAW it’s very easy to adjust after the fact.
