Architectural Photography

This week, we’re talking about architecture photography. Architectural subjects are easy to find, and a very typical subject when you’re traveling or even in your own home town. It’s more than just photographing buildings! We discuss some creative approaches that we use when photographing architecture, including tips for post-processing your images.

Join us in Denver: Sept. 29-Oct 2

We’re hosting a small-group photography workshop event in downtown Denver, Colorado.

Should you upgrade to mirrorless (2022 edition)

We’ve talked about the pros and cons of mirrorless camera systems before, but we thought that this would be a good time to revisit the discussion. With newer and more mature technology, and many systems to choose from, mirrorless cameras are here to stay. The real question remains: should you upgrade to one? The question might not be as simple as it seems.

iPhone Photography Secrets

This week, we’re discussing some of the (somewhat) hidden features in the iPhone camera app, including portrait mode and the new RAW capture feature available in the iPhone 12/13 Pro models. We’ve found ourselves re-thinking our photo workflow for iPhone photos in ways that we didn’t think possible!

New Nikon Z30 & 400mm f/4.5 Z Nikkor

Earlier this week, Nikon announced the Z30, a new APS-C format mirrorless camera geared towards vloggers and content creators. Nikon also announced a new 400mm f/4.5 telephoto prime for Z-mount cameras.

When to “go big”

Previously, we talked about the “going small” approach to photography. This week, we discuss the pros and cons of “going big.” Do you really need a large camera system? Is your smartphone camera enough?

Traveling through Portugal & Major Lightroom Updates!

We’re back this week after Rick returned from a vacation trip to Portugal. Many times, our travels don’t always line up for “pure photography” so Rick will discuss how he used his OM System OM-1 and his iPad Pro to work on his photos while traveling.

Earlier this week, we saw updates to the Nik Collection by DXO (paid upgrade) as well as Lightroom/Photoshop. Lightroom’s masking tools got a HUGE boost to functionality by adding a true “Invert Mask” function. We both think it’s a great update, and recommend our Lightroom users update their software to the latest version.
