Sensor formats & resolution

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.

Geo-tagging your photos

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.

How much retouching is acceptable?

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.
