We decided to take a little road trip up into the high country of Colorado to find some eclectic subjects. It was great to get out and use some of our gear, and when we returned, we used some novel post-processing to create a unique look for our photos.

Are DSLRs Dead?

This week, we answer a listener question about the future of DSLRs. Given the overwhelming trend towards mirrorless cameras by all of the major camera manufacturers, it’s a good time to ask whether there’s a future for DSLRs.
