As she battled and beat cancer, Kathryn Dyer found peace and passion through photography

In the latest episode of the sixth season of Adorama&#39;s Through the Lens, the focus is on photographer <a href="https://www.instagram.com/kathryn_dyer/" >Kathryn Dyer</a>. Sacramento-based Dyer first forayed into the world of Instagram and became more serious about photography when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her husband bought a camera for them to share and take Kathryn&#39;s mind off her battle with cancer through nature photography sessions.

Now in remission, Dyer is a professional photographer. In case you&#39;re curious about her gear, she currently shoots with a <a href="https://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/sony-a7r-iii/sony-a7r-iiiA.HTM">Sony A7R III</a>...

Pixels for Geeks: A peek inside Nikon’s super-secret sensor design lab

I&rsquo;ve known for some time that <a href="https://www.nikon.com/" rel="nofollow" >Nikon</a> actually designs their own sensors, to a fairly minute level of detail. I think this is almost unknown in the photo community; most people just assume that &ldquo;design&rdquo; in Nikon&rsquo;s case simply consists of ordering-up different combinations of specs from sensor manufacturers, picking a feature from column &ldquo;A&rdquo;, another from column &ldquo;B&rdquo; and so on, like a Chinese restaurant menu. In actuality, they have a full staff of sensor engineers who design cutting-edge sensors like those in the D5 and D850...

Sony A7 III Review Conclusion: Sony’s best all-around full-frame mirrorless camera to date

Click here to read our <a href="http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/sony-a7-iii/sony-a7-iii-conclusion.htm">Sony A7 III Review Conclusion</a>
















Sony&#39;s full-frame mirrorless cameras keep getting better and better! The latest-generation of their "entry-level" option, the <a href="http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/sony-a7-iii/sony-a7-iiiA.HTM">A7 III</a>, is no exception. At $2,000 it&#39;s admittedly kind of odd to consider it "entry-level," but the A7 line is the starting point into the Sony full-frame mirrorless family. However, don&#39;t think that means they&#39;ve skimped-out on features or performance, quite the opposite actually.

In fact, the Sony A7 III offers so many upgrades, improvements and...

How to utilize foreground elements to create stronger ultra wide angle images

Photographer <a href="http://www.adamgibbs.com/" >Adam Gibbs</a> recently visited Needle Peak and Flatiron Mountain in the British Columbian alpines. These picturesque places provide ample opportunity for shooting with ultra wide angle lenses.

Ultra wide lenses do an awesome job at capturing wide, expansive environments. However, it&#39;s very easy to capture too much of a scene and not have a strong enough subject. Wide angle photography is tough. Gibbs is here to help us do a better job with composing ultra wide angle shots. A great way to create a compelling wide shot is...

Missed opportunities and learning lessons in landscape photography with Thomas Heaton

In photographer <a href="https://www.thomasheaton.co.uk/" >Thomas Heaton&#39;s</a> newest video, he opens by discussing the many wonderful aspects of landscape photography. It allows you to travel and explore, you get to become more involved with nature and the great outdoors and it can be very rewarding and enjoyable. Heaton recently headed north to Scotland for location scouting and a bit of photography.

While out in northwestern Scotland, he was treated to beautiful light. However, for various reasons, the great light did not result in a suitably good photograph. The situation...

Ben Horne cleans up litter & finds nice compositions on the 7th day of his spring photo trip

Large format photographer <a href="https://www.benhorne.com/" >Ben Horne</a> spent over a week on the Colorado Plateau this past spring. In the video below, we join him on the seventh day of the trip as he continues to explore Capitol Reef and tries to dodge nearby rain storms. While it&#39;s not always ideal to spend time hiking with large format gear in the rain, it can be the case that storms leave behind some interesting colors, patterns and textures, particularly in dry areas which don&#39;t always see a lot of rain. Weather can significantly change a landscape.

The Breakdown with Miguel Quiles: Using a single gridded light for beauty portraits

With a single light, you can capture very nice portraits in a studio space. In the video below, Sony Artisan <a href="http://miguelquiles.com/" >Miguel Quiles</a> shows off how to use a single gridded light. The video is his latest for Adorama&#39;s <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHXvjOk1dlY&amp;list=PLwm6LvGc5xq0oJ3sV-K7e-D0CRgG8kfEE" >The Breakdown with Miguel Quiles</a> video series.

Positioning your camera near the ground can take your photos to new heights

Photographers are often looking for ways to help separate their work and make their images stand out. A great way to do this is to utilize a distinct camera angle. If you want to get a neat perspective, try shooting from a very low angle. In Jay P. Morgan&#39;s latest video for <a href="http://theslantedlens.com/" >The Slanted Lens</a>, he discusses the different ways you can shoot low and what type of gear you might need.

Just because you want a low angle doesn&#39;t mean you need to literally set your camera on the ground.

Hasselblad H6D-100c versus Nikon D850: What are the real-world advantages of a medium-format camera?

Photographer <a href="http://karltaylorportfolio.com/" >Karl Taylor</a> has extensive experience in the photographic industry, having worked with numerous types of camera technologies for over 20 years. Hasselblad is incredibly confident in their latest digital medium-format cameras and has asked Taylor to show the differences between 35mm and medium format in an "unbiased manner." Of course, the videos are for Hasselblad, so take "unbiased" as you will. Nonetheless, the series of four videos, seen below, are interesting and there are certainly interesting differences between...

3 tips for capturing great bird photos on dull cloudy days

When photographing birds, you often want a very high shutter speed, which means you need a lot of light. However, what do you do if you&#39;re photographing on a cloudy day? Photographer <a href="https://www.timboyerphotography.com/" >Tim Boyer</a> has a new video offering three tips for bird photography on cloudy days.

If you have a bland, gray sky that really saps the life from an image, the best thing you can do is keep the sky out of the picture altogether. You can raise the camera up to get a different angle and eliminate the sky from your frame. A small shift in position <!--more-->...

Two Minute Tips: Making shade with David Bergman

We&#39;ve seen plenty of videos of photographers capturing portraits during golden hour lighting conditions. It&#39;s often not too difficult to get really nice light when the sun is low. However, you don&#39;t always have the luxury of shooting during these times. What if you want to capture natural-light portraits during the middle of the day, when the sun is high and the light is harsh?

Golden hour natural light portrait photoshoot with Jessica Kobeissi

Photographer and popular YouTuber <a href="http://www.jessicakobeissi.com/" >Jessica Kobeissi</a> recently did a golden hour natural light photoshoot with model <a href="https://www.instagram.com/sydneyjharper/" >Sydney Harper</a>. In the video below, we go behind the scenes with Kobeissi as she works with some excellent natural light.

While relying on natural light does limit the times of day you can shoot, it also means that you can capture great shots without lighting equipment, which can be prohibitively expensive for photographers just starting out. That&#39;s not to say natural light is only for beginners, of course, but it&#39;s...
