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.
Iceland photography at its best! Let’s find out how flexible you are The Iceland 2015 adventure is getting closer. If you’re quick, you can still pick up one of the two open spots. Or both.
Iceland offers a wild and wonderful landscape and for photographers. The Icelandic winter is simply stunning. You will find everything from amazing waterfalls to black lava beaches with big chunks of blue ice. From glacier caves to icy lagoons. From geysers to the breathtaking northern lights – the Aurora Borealis.
We will travel in our own vehicle and hiking will be kept to a minimum. You will be accompanied by two professional travel photographers (Chris and Tim) who will provide you with on-the-spot tips, tricks and instruction.
You don’t have to be a professional photographer to do great Iceland photography. We will make sure you return with amazing pictures. We’re making this an easy experience for you. All you have to do is get to Reykjavik airport (KEF) and we will do the rest. Beginning with personally picking you up at the airport and taking you through the lava fields (that’s where the Icelandic fairies live!) to the hotel.
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.
