DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY SCHOOLA Guest Post by Kaspars Grinvalds from Posing App. If you ever run out of ideas, get stuck in creativity or simply need some guidance when shooting female subjects, you may use following posing samples as a “posing cheat sheet”. Many pro photographers use such a technique when preparing for and during the photo shoot. The poses in this article are selected as initial reference. I would advise to look at the poses together with your subject, especially if she’s inexperienced. During a photo shoot ... 21 Sample Poses to Get You Started with Photographing Female Subjects
PHOTO RUMORSHasselblad X-Pan film camera I received a tip that Hasselblad will introduce a new family of digital cameras this year, probably at Photokina. One of the possibilities is a smaller DSLR type camera. The other rumor is for a digital X-Pan camera, which will use a customized sensor in order to provide the wide panorama format. The sensor will be smaller then the original film double frame (24mm x 65mm) and will probably have 1.5x crop factor. The price will be at the Leica M9 range ($6000-$7000). In ...

GIZMODO CAMERABenchmarks don't always tell the whole story of a gadget or device, but they can be quite handy as support for those gut instincts and intuitions people have while using a device. And in the case of the Nikon D800, whose sensor DxOMark called the best ever after benchmarking it, it will need all the support it can get in its inevitable comparison against the Canon 5D MKIII.

Reader Murray O reports:
The other day I was reading an entry of yours about Canon and Nikon QC and its message came to life when I picked up a brand new Nikkor 24/1.4. When I mounted the lens on my D700, the viewfinder was inexplicably dim, and the camera could not focus or do anything else for that matter. When I unmounted the lens and heard a metallic clanging, I peered inside (forgive the poor focus on my point-and-shoot).

Federal Courthouse Photography Settlement
Above is the full text of the settlement.
The US Department of Homeland Security reached a settlement with photographer/videographer Antonio Musumeci, who, with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union, filed a claim when he was arrested six months ago for documenting a political protest outside of a federal courthouse in Manhattan.
The ACLU claimed that Musumeci was arrested based on a vague and inconsistently enforced regulation. They cited that federal courthouses in other cities like Washington DC and Philadelphia allow photography on their grounds, and that regulation must be unanimously enforced nation-wide. They also claimed that for a public building to ban photography, signs must be posted clearly and visibly throughout the area....Homeland Security Settles Photographer’s Rights Case, Issues New Guidelines to Police
Almost a year ago today, we made a post about a company that was selling wacky inflatable photobooths that were designed by two professional photographers for use at weddings, parties, ect—what could possibly top that? How about an inflatable photo studio. That’s right, an entire studio made of high-grade plastic that inflates to size in 2-3 minutes.

If there's currently a Samsung NX10 residing in your camera bag, you might want to bust it out and bestow upon it the new firmware that Samsung has just released. The big draw for firmware version 1.20 is that the NX10 will now be compatible with Samsung's i-Function system, which lets you control crucial camera settings (aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance, etc) right from the camera's lens. i-Function was first debuted with the NX100 interchangeable lens compact, which we got some extensive hands-on time with at Photokina.
The NX10 will now work with the new 20-50mm zoom and 20mm prime pancake lenses, which make use of the new Lens Distortion Compensation system. Finally, the new firmware also makes the NX10 compatible with the GPS tracker, which adds geotags to images, complete with city names.
If you want to make the upgrade, you can download it at the Samsung site. Then you can take a moment to thank Samsung for being so awesome and bringing their cool new tech to slightly older models. That's the way it should be.

Readers of the Luminous Landscape Forum (http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?topic=49968.0 and http://www.luminous-landscape.com/forum/index.php?topic=49443.0) will recall that a question was raised about whether prints from the new Epson 4900 show colour inconstancy (CI), (often wrongly called “metamerism”). CI essentially means that the appearance of a unique hue changes according to differences of the various sources of illumination in which it may be viewed.

Regular readers will have noticed that since late December '10 I have been living and working in Mexico, and shooting exclusively with the Panasonic GH2. When I came down to San Miguel in mid-December I knew that I was limited in the kind of equipment that I could bring with me. I intended to shoot documentary stills as well as video, and knew that I would be doing a lot of walking and hiking. This ...Panasonic GH2 Revisited
The weather in California last December was awful. Record rainfall, high winds and all the assorted consequences such as flooding and mud slides. For some reason, the sameness of the weather day in and day out seemed to exacerbate what I call a "photographic funk".
I believe that most photographers periodically experience a lack of creativity. A time when one is either bored ...Does Equipment Affect Creativity
I visited this location several times prior to creating this image. However, each time the light was flat, the sky cloudless and I did not feel inspired to create a photograph.

A frequently asked question I get is whether or not my images are the result of planning, and if so, how I go about it.

The world is waiting for Canon to release a top end performing ultra wide lens for full frame cameras. While I think the 17-40 f/4L is a bargain of a workhorse and the 16-35 f/2.8L II is a very solid performer, I think the line is still lacking that standout ultra wide zoom lens.

A while back I wrote a post on some features I’d love to see, but I really didn’t think would make it in to Lightroom. Well, one of those features was the ability to show me my focus points. At times, I’ll shoot the same photo but focus in different areas. As a landscape photographer, sometimes I’ll merge a few photos together (focus stacking) to get an ultra sharp photo. Other times, I just use one photo, but knowing where I focussed can help me in the future.

Okay, my fall 2014 schedule is locked in for my Lightroom seminar tour and I figured I’d announce the dates and give away a free ticket to each city. If you’ve never attended the seminar before, it’s basically a 1-day Lightroom crash course. Here’s a quote from one of the attendees from last year:

The other week Scott turned me on to a post by Mark Stagi over at Digitalphotobuzz.com. It was called Hacking the Lightroom 5 Splash Screen. It’s actually very cool and I never knew you could do that before. However, before you go visit the site, just understand that it has no educational value whatsoever. But as photographers, I think it’s kinda cool. We love to display our photos, and this is a cool way to do it when Lightroom starts up.

Yesterday, I wrote a post about 3 features that I’d love to see in Lightroom (but probably won’t). They’re 3 features that I think I’d use, but I’m not so sure the masses would and it would be worth the development effort on Adobe’s time. Well, as I wrote the post, I realized a way that I could sort of do one of the features I was looking for.

I’m sure we all have features we’d like to see in Lightroom (or lots of other programs too). And sometimes those features are so meaningful to us that we have no idea why everyone else doesn’t think so too. Well, my post is coming from a different place. I’m fully aware that these features are fairly random and probably only just applicable to me. They’re so specific that I actually don’t think we’ll ever see these features in Lightroom, but I thought it would be kinda fun to throw ‘em out there. ...3 Features I Don’t Think We’ll Ever See in Lightroom (But I’d like to)
I always try to sit down and think up things that have become totally vital to my Lightroom workflow. Sometimes those things are right inside Lightroom, but I have to say if there’s one non-Lightroom thing that I can’t live without for my photos, it’s my Wacom tablet. No joke. I know I shouldn’t have to say this, but Wacom doesn’t pay me a penny to write about them. And honestly, if you don’t own a tablet then this post isn’t even for you because it’s probably hard for you to envision where you’d ...The Top 5 Ways I Use My Wacom Tablet with Lightroom
Hey everyone. Sorry for being away lately. If you follow my personal blog (if you’re in to landscape photography I hope you do), I posted that I was going to be gone for a week filming a Landscape Photography at Mt.

Hey everyone. I keep getting asked about all of the Lightroom plug-ins out there, which is why (a while back) I created a plug-in category here on the site. One of the big areas I hear a lot about is film effects. Lately it seems that film effects have taken over the post-processing world. Look at the popularity of the VSCO Film presets for Lightroom (and many others that do something similar). Just about every photo app on the iPhone does ‘em too.

I am a very competitive man and I hate to lose and I hate to fail. I try to keep that beast in the cage because it can be pretty ugly when it gets out and prowls around but the plain fact is I truly hate losing.

I still remember this conversation from several years back. A fellow photographer was about as stuck as you can get. He worked perpetual fourteen (or more) hour days, never got much of a day off and was struggling hard with a record-setting case of burn out.

Now, as Atlanta-based wedding photographers, they are winning hearts and minds for their soft, immersive approach to capturing meaningful moments in a couple’s life.

I am 6’5” tall, weigh around 16 stones and have size 12 feet. When I want to use it I have a voice like a fog horn, I’m naturally fairly clumsy and I have been told that I have a certain “presence” – in a good way I think! I therefore take it as a huge compliment when my wedding clients remark that they hardly noticed me taking photographs at their wedding, that I was discreet and, as one wrote to me “I don’t understand how someone so tall can be so unobtrusive!”

Last summer my family and I packed up our travel trailer and headed north to Wyoming. We had no plan, no itinerary. Only a few vague ideas and a whole mess of maps and guidebooks. We wandered through Dinosaur National Monument and then followed a lonely highway across rolling hills that eventually gave way to the Wind River Mountains, a range easily equal to the Tetons in ...Moments and Memories
I usually like to go out when we have a storm going through because there is a chance we’ll have some great light. Well I didn’t think that that would happen the other night as it got pretty grey and boring out real quick. Then 20 minutes before the sun went down, an opening occurred and lit up this one great cloud. I couldn’t believe it. Well there wasn’t any time to get somewhere so I just shot out my back window. One of the benefits of living next to a ranch is having lots of space. Here is the ...Not expecting the Light
I photographed this on a weekend looking for white sand beachscapes at Wilson’s Promontory, the southern tip of the Australian mainland. Most of the shoots were busts due to clear skies but on the final morning I came across some very thick fog. On the way back from shooting the Tidal River beach at sunrise, I came across this scene as early morning sunlight filtered through the lifting fog. I shot this one handed at full stretch with my arm above my head on my tippy toes to get as much separation ...Back to the Future
Back in September 2012 Google acquired the popular standalone company Nic Software. Over the years I had installed various types of it’s plug in’s on my range of computers to check it out but every time I just couldn’t justify the price they were asking per plug in, especially when I was happy with my current workflow. But now in March 2013 Google has made available the whole Nic Software plugins for $149. Now it is a case of how can I justify not to buy these plugins, given the discount is some ...Google buys Nik Software offering $149 bundle
Bighorn Sheep / Photo by Jim BraswellTraveling to photograph at a new location is always a fun experience for me. I love reading, or hearing about a place that I “just have to photograph.” But, to get the most out of the experience, be prepared by thoroughly researching the location before packing and heading out.

Well, there are several reasons to do your research. The main reason is that travel is expensive, and conducting upfront research can save you time ...How To Research a New Photo Location
At first glance, this image has a great deal of impact. The Photoshop treatment works with the style of the pose, and the environment. you’ve done a great job of making the subject feel relaxed and that is half the battle. I love the selective focus on the subject, and using a shallow depth of field kept the trees in the background from competing for attention. Good for you and your subject! There is one area you might want to refine just a touch, and that is on the pose. The subject has her ...anhttp://cantrellportrait.com/blog/wp-admin/edit.phpdrew singh Image critique
A few weeks back I got to shoot Jennifer + Mario’s 5-hr wedding completely solo. The beautiful wedding was at a gorgeous Balinese-inspired private home in Beverly Hills, CA and it was attended by about 30-40 people of their friends and families. Jennifer and Mario met a while back and quite immediately fell for each other. They have a daughter together, Rio, which became the flower girl at the ceremony.

This has been one of the craziest years of my life. As a wedding photographer based in both Dallas, Texas and Paris, France, I’ve racked up a lot of frequent flyer miles! Running a business that spans the globe and shooting weddings in several different countries has been quite an adventure, and I feel very lucky to have been able to spend so many beautiful wedding days with so many brides and grooms.

This week’s choice is one of those quirky moments you can only see in a photograph. I guess as a wedding photograph on its own it doesn’t tell us too much about the wedding, but it has a certain appeal alongside all of the other pictures that were taken at this event.
The dog is the bride and groom’s, and part of the brief they gave me was to make sure I had some pictures of the dog at the drinks reception. I was following the dog around and this image caught my eye. I initially saw the groom’s legs ...
It’s that time of year again….the sun is peeking out more often, the trees are coming into bloom and engagement sessions are being done!
Angela and Chris (whose wedding was this past weekend – more on that soon), braved the always unpredictable March weather with Steve for their session. It was worth it, though, as the sun made an appearance and Vancouver provided the perfect backdrop for their images.
RIP Robin Williams.
Words can not express how crushed I am & I will miss your genius terribly!
You inspired me for so many years.
Your lightning fast wit, comedic genius and ability to throw caution to the wind – sharing what was on your mind gave me strength at times when I had none.

For those of you who don’t live in Godzone (New Zealand, OK?) Vaughan Smith does the drive time show on New Zealand’s top music station, The Edge.

we do quite a few indian weddings each year and one of my favorite parts of the ceremony is the baraat, the arrival of the groom and his friends to meet the bride’s family. This is traditionally done on a mare and includes groovin’ indian music payed on dhol (drums) and shehnais (kind of like a buzzy oboe) and the grooms procession dances the entire way. I thought we’d share one of our favorite baraat photographs from last year.

Though the compact-styled GF1 proved very popular as a 'take-everywhere' camera for enthusiast photographers, its replacement, the GF2, left these users nonplussed.

We’ve wrapped up our review over at CGG of the Canon EOS Rebel T3i, the 18MP advanced entry-level offering that’s bound to be at the top of best-seller lists over the next year. The question is, does it deserve to be? After reviewing the T3i, there’s no question that it is a very well featured camera, more than capable of taking great snappy photos. But providing a final recommendation proved rather tricky for any number of reasons. First the cost…the ...Now Posted: Canon EOS Rebel T3i (600D) DSLR Camera Review
Review by Klaus Schroiff, published August 2014Introduction A while ago we reviewed the Olympus 15mm f/8 Lens Cap but, honestly, we weren't all that impressed. After all, there are several available pancake lenses around this focal length so there is a rather limited appeal in such an offering in our opinion. Seems as if Olympus agreed with this assessment ... and recently they released their 2nd shot - the Olympus 9mm f/8 Fisheye Lens Cap. Now THIS makes a lot more sense since most people don't ...Olympus 9mm f/8 Fisheye Lens Cap review

Anyone remember the old American Photographer magazine? I’m talking pre-American PHOTO, when the magazine had great long form feature stories on photographers. One of my favorite features was the “What’s in your camera bag?” double truck. As a young high school photographer, I loved seeing what everyone was using, and I loved the quirky stuff and homemade gadgets that photographers carried. I still vividly remember the features on Roger Ressmeyer, the late Brian Lanker, Jodi Cobb, and a host of others. ...What’s in my Bag? – Houston Commercial Photographer Robert Seale

Winter is arguably one of the prettiest times to be an outdoor photographer; winter white can transform an otherwise lifeless brown landscape into a magical wonderland. However, winter is also one of the most challenging times to be outdoors shooting. Frankly the biggest limiting factor in winter photography is personal comfort (for me anyway, I’m a wus). If you’re not comfortable you won’t be free to think and see creatively and certainly won’t want to stay out for the sweet light. Here is some ...Winter Photography: Be Prepared, Be Successful

It’s no secret that APS-C (aka DX-format) shooters have been given short-shrift by both Nikon and Canon for the last 5 years.

Canon has fixed that for its smaller-format loyalists in one fell swoop with the awesomely-speced . That begs the question of whether DX loyalists on the Nikon side should consider jumping ship…Is the Canon EOS 7D Mark II the Nikon D400 DX shooters with a Nikon D300 have been waiting for?
If you’re like me and you don’t use the histogram on your camera (well, I do use my camera’s highlight clipping warning, but technically that’s separate from the actual histogram), knowing how the sliders in the Basic panel of Camera Raw affect your histogram can be really helpful.
If you hover your cursor over the histogram in Camera Raw, it will display the name of the slider that covers that part of the histogram, as well as highlight the area that slider affects. When you do this, you’ll notice ...Using the Histogram to Learn What the Sliders Do in Photoshop Camera Raw
Dear faithful MacCreate readers,
MacCreate has had a wonderful seven-year run, launching in 2005 as AUN (Aperture User’s Network), and eventually growing into the multi-facetted MacCreate site you know and love today. However this growth, which currently covers the entire Mac ecosystem and requires additional staff, hardware and logistics, has proven to be unsustainable.It is time to change again, to return to our roots, and to return our focus on Aperture.
Two years ago, my friend Joseph Linaschke, ...MacCreate and ApertureExpert Join Forces

In the midst of some difficult times professionally – being laid off and thrust out into the job market again – I was contacted by a number of my faithful readers with ideas and opportunities to take on some small projects here and there to help out as things were tight.
Of particular note, I’d like to thank Tim Collins of Second Shootr who has contracted me to write a series of guest articles for the blog over there. Also, Friend-of-the-Blog Chris Stern asked me to design the logo for his new blog ...Portfolio Reviews
How to photograph Half Moon Bay
Half Moon Bay is a favorite getaway destination for the stressed-out San Francisco Bay area workforce. The town and its surrounding area offer everything you could possibly want to spend a few cheerful hours between weeks of crushing work. Fine dining, local attractions, organic produce, shopping, surfing, rich colorful nature and spectacular beach scenery are some of the more popular things people come for. Among all this buzzling activity, you will still be able to find solitude on the trails. ...

Photographs Not Taken is a collection of short essays written by photographers about the photos they didn’t make. It’s a rare book about photography that doesn’t contain a single photo! Instead it shares powerful stories about a situation all photographers face.
The book itself is quick to read, and each essay is only a page or two long, so it was easy to pick it up for a few minutes a day (and ...Book Report: Photographs Not Taken
Getting feedback from customers, setting up surveys for market research is something every photographer should do for their business. The reality is most don’t use this powerful medium to enhance their services, products, prices and to engage with their clients. The 2 main reasons is that one doesn’t know how to start and secondly most think it involves buying expensive software to be able to do that.
Well the good news is that you can easily get started for free using Google Docs. We use Google ...How to create Customer Feedback Surveys
Recently I joined Frederick Van Johnson and Dan Ablan on This Week In Photo for another rousing conversation about the world of photography. Among the issues we discuss on TWiP 373 is the question of who owns the copyright for selfie made by a monkey with a stolen camera. [True story--after the pic went viral on the web, the photographer asked Wikipedia to take it down and they refused. Check out the story and see the photo here.] We also discuss how a newspaper made an appalling mistake by using ...This Week In Photo 373: Monkey Business
Last week Nikon released their D600 entry level Full Frame DSLR. Today, we hear Canon’s response with the launch of the 6D. It looks to be a strong rival to the D600 with a full frame sensor and a lower-than-expected price. Delving into the specs though, it’s clear that Canon’s real intention for the 6D is to replace it’s very own 5D Mark II.The Specs
Canon’s 6D boasts a full frame, 20.2 megapixel CMOS sensor. It holds a rather underwhelming 11 AF points and the impressive DIGIC 5+ Image processor. ...Canon’s new 6D Full Frame SLR. The Complete Rundown.

Think of a subject and chances are there’s at least one magazine title in print that deals with it.

There’s a sad truth to art museums that’s not often talked about: sometimes, things just disappear. Over time, countless works of art have gone missing for one reason or another, whether it’s damage, theft, poor stewardship, natural disaster, or the tragic effects of war. For every hundred or thousand paintings or sculptures, there’s one that’s been lost to the ages. Some exist in reproductions or sketches, but some are gone for good. This list is just a small sample of those works of art that ...20 Works of Art Missing or Destroyed
D610, Df, D810, D4s, there seems to be a plethora of Nikon full frame options out there and the list just grew larger with the addition of the new D750. But what does the D750 do to differentiate itself from the rest of the Nikon FX lineup? How does it stack up to the D610, D700, and D810 – which is it more closely related to?
Chris Niccolls, and the CameraStore TV, offer some answers to these questions, and more in their latest comprehensive first hand review featuring the new Nikon D750.

I know I keep beating this HDR drum, but it’s a good beat.
After 2 months of dealing with health crud, I recently had to shoot in wicked harsh lighting conditions. These days were not perfectly sunny blue sky days, but rather what I refer to as “White Haze”. I say that because it is almost like a white sky with a hint of cyan. Bad air, atmosphere issues, whatever you want to blame it on, the air quality has been terrible during this severe drought along the Emerald Coast ...HDR for Real Estate and Architecture
Well, I just got back from an amazing trip through New Zealand and for everyone out there, I suggest you add it to your bucket list! It’s visually stunning with immense natural diversity to make any photographer fall in awe.
Here’s the gear we left with:
DJI Phantom 2 drone
2 x GoPro Hero 3
2 x iPhone 5S

In one of my recent articles I talked about the beginning of the digital age and the consequences it brought to our understanding of photography. With all its greatness, with all the speed and quality and versatility, it became irreplaceable in our everyday lives and businesses. Along with that, however, digital photography also brought up a few problems, likely the biggest of which was the growing interest in new technologies rather than photography itself. This problem seemed to push the very goal ...Mamiya RZ67 Pro Review

Top 10 Rules of Travel Photography
A lot of my work involves traveling to foreign countries and living in remote places. My job is to become invisible and get close to people and wildlife, so I can bring their stories to life. It’s no different being in my home state of Montana than it is being in a country ten thousand miles away. For me, the intimate moments always matter the most.

Welcome to part 3 of this series on using the Web module in Lightroom 4 to create a serious website.
In Part 1, I showed that the Web module as it’s supplied with Lightroom is simply not capable of doing the job for a professional or serious amateur photographer.
