It happens all the time… the grass looks greener on the other side. Maybe it’s a new lens or a new camera design that really makes you think about switching your system. Maybe you think your existing kit is obsolete. This week, Jason and Rick talk about switching or adding camera systems, and whether it makes sense to do it.

These little tidbits will save a lot of headaches if you travel with your camera
In October 2010, I made the decision to pursue my photography career full-time. Since then, travel has become an important component of my business. As you might imagine, traveling with your camera gear adds a layer of complexity to any plans you may have. Whether its dealing with airport security or just figuring out how to pack everything so it is safe, there are lots of little things that can make your travel experience easier. Here are some of my favorite travel tips.
Digital exposure is about data, not the final image
Photographic capture is not about “getting the image right” in-camera. It’s about recording the *best possible data* to further work on in post. In other words, we try to make sure that the original exposure preserves the elements of the image that are important to us, so that we can then execute the final image (in the darkroom or on the computer).
We firmly believe that good post-processing is a critical step in the creation of a powerful digital photograph. Just as Ansel Adams works were not finished until the final print, your best digital photographs will benefit from a little work in post. Here are some of our favorite tips for processing your images.
