That was then, this is now: old “rules” gone bad

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

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.

Badlands Workshop Update

Updated info on Jason’s Landscape Photography Workshop August 27-30, 2020

Here’s the latest information on my August workshop in the Badlands of South Dakota

When: August 26-30, 2020
Where: South Dakota Badlands (Wall, SD)

The South Dakota Badlands is the perfect setting for photographers who not only want to photograph spectacular scenery, but also learn the behind the scenes techniques for processing and workflow, including HDR, infrared, monochrome, and long exposures.

Each day, we will have the opportunity download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to make your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products. Our focus will be on the complete end to-end workflow of landscape photography, from composition to final digital or print output.

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.
