Nikon 28-75mm f/2.8 Revisited

We recently got our hands on the Nikon (made by Tamron) 28-75mm f/2.8 Nikkor Z lens. This is a well-made lens that is very good optically, and is far less expensive than the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8S lens. Much to our delight, the Nikon 28-75mm f/2.8 is an excellent performer for infrared photography (something that the 24-70/2.8S does not do well). Should you get one? It depends on your needs, and what kind of subjects you enjoy photographing.

Many thanks to our friends at B&H Photo for loaning us the Nikon 28-75mm lens to test!

We took a short trip to Tucson, Arizona and we shot infrared photos exclusively. Look for an infrared workshop from us in early 2023!

Flash photography in the age of high ISO

We received a question from one of our listeners, who wanted to know if we used flash anymore. Given the amazing high ISO performance of today’s digital cameras, you might thing flash is unnecessary. However, there is still a role for flash photography, especially for indoor events, studio work, and balancing harsh outdoor light. We’ll discuss how we use flash, along with a recap of the fundamentals of flash exposure (good to know) and how to easily control flash with your camera.

Sharpening Your Images

This week, we’re discussing image sharpening. If you’re not sharpening your images, you’re probably not getting the best quality out of your files. In-camera sharpening can be particularly poor, and often leads to more noticeable noise. We’ll walk you through the steps we use to sharpen (and apply noise reduction) and the tools we use to do it.
