As much as we enjoy being photography enthusiasts and the “craft” of photography, there are some times when you need to scale back to a more casual approach while still using a “real” camera. Whether it’s photographing friends and family, events or vacations, we’ll discuss how you can alter your workflow to make sharing easier and reduce post-processing time.
This week, we had the special opportunity to interview Nikon Ambassador Ron Magill, who is also the Director of Communications for Zoo Miami. During his 40 year career, Ron has become a proficient photographer as well as a spokesman for animal conservation world-wide. We discussed the role of photography in wildlife conservation, as well as tips for how to photograph wildlife at your local zoo. The Ron Magill Endowment has raised nearly $2 million to fund international wildlife conservation programs.
This week, Jason & Rick are back with a look at digital photography advice that might have been relevant in the past, but no longer. If you’re still setting your white balance to “cloudy” or “zooming with your feet,” this episode is for you! Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/ImageDoctors
This week, Rick and Jason discuss the importance of sensor size and resolution on image quality, including compact/phone cameras through medium format sensor sizes. Depending on the kind of photography that you do and where you choose to share it, resolution isn’t as important as you might think. We also discuss the relative merits of camera systems that use different sensor sizes, and how they may impact the way you capture images.
This week, Jason and Rick discuss the how and why of adding GPS data to your photos (geotagging). You can use an GPS adapter on your camera, or use track-logging apps on your smartphone to help you put GPS coordinates onto your images.
