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.
This week, we are talking retouching. Yes, every digital image must be processed, but how much manipulation is okay? From simple cloning of object to compositing and sky replacement, we discuss the (sometimes) controversial topic of image retouching and enhancement.
If you’re interested in sky replacement, the best tool we’ve found so far is Luminar from Skylum Software. It does an exceptional job of auto-masking your images and replacing skies.
