Chris talks about visual storytelling, selfie-sticks (yes, again), finding the right macro lens (or faking it) and finally: how to do manual exposure the right way? Follow along with his walk-through to learn something today.
Well.. isn’t it all photography? Doesn’t it feel kinda wrong to look down on those who shoot with a smartphone? And honestly, we’re doing it all, aren’t we? Is it any less serious than shooting with a big DSLR? Chris discusses this and more questions.
Happy New Year! Chris kicks off the new year by answering some listener questions and making sure we don’t lose sight of the most important things in photography. Jose has a question about buying a computer for editing photos and videos, Graham needs a way to exercise his photographic eye and Tommy reports back on the changes that have happened in his photographic life.
In this last episode of the year, Chris will touch on Deep Sky Photography vs. Nightscapes (and why he might have used that term slightly wrong). There are a few questions about zones (is it really the holy grail of exposure?) and Chris interviews Sina Farhat from Gothenborg, Sweden, who tells us about his method of scanning film with a DSLR.
Today Chris goes through a bunch of listener questions and feedback. Jonathan asks about deleting pictures in camera, Chris says he never deletes pictures in camera. Mark wants to know if it’s a good idea to switch from automatic mode right to manual mode, skipping aperture priority. Jim needs some help choosing matte colors when framing his pictures and John wonders how important it is to calibrate your monitor.
