We’ve been helping and educating photographers for over 10 years now, and this week we decided to compile a short list of some of our most frequently dispensed “photo prescriptions.” Because digital photography is a multi-faceted art form, we include tips for getting better shots in the camera, and also ways to improve your images during post-processing.
We also return to our discussion of color management. This week, we discuss editing and output color profiles, and how you should use them.
Celebrating 10 years of epic landscape photography in South Dakota
The first time I visited Badlands National Park, I was on a week-long photo tour with members of the Nikonians photographic community. It was 2005, and it was my first “real” photo experience with a digital camera, my brand-new Nikon D2x. I had two (!) 4GB memory cards in total, and I still remember the challenge of making the transition from film (fixed ISOs and slow shutter speeds) to digital.
In 2019, I had the opportunity to spend a week at the Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge in Bocas del Toro, Panama. I discovered Panama’s incredibly rich biodiversity, with hundreds of species of birds, mammals, and reptiles. This is my story of that experience!
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.
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.
