The Problem With the Internet and Photography

The internet is a great resource. It allows us to find an answer to anything in an instance. It is rare that I can’t find what I am looking for during day to day searches. However, there is a huge negative to this too.

4 Reasons Not to Switch Camera Systems

Do you want to switch from Canon to Sony? From Sony to Nikon? From Nikon to Panasonic? From Panasonic to Fujifilm? Well, I’m going to ask you to stop, take a deep breath, and consider doing the most boring thing: absolutely nothing. Instead of switching camera brands, you should probably stick with what you have.

Here’s why:

Reason #1: Cameras Are Getting Better… and More Similar

Sony’s Eye-AF used to be the only game in town when it came to eye detect autofocus. Then Canon and the other brands caught up.

Feature leads never last because the big boys just

If Canon Doesn't Fix This Huge Problem, Its Mind-Blowing Roadmap for 2021 Will Be Utterly Pointless for Many

Have you seen what’s on the horizon for Canon in 2021? Wow. After a number of comparatively lackluster years, Canon roared back to life in 2020 with the announcement of a few new cameras and a bunch of new lenses. However, there’s a glaring issue that needs to be urgently addressed or it will all be rather meaningless.

Is Canon's New Camera Nothing More Than a Firmware Upgrade?

Canon’s big announcement this week was the brand new EOS M50 Mark II, an upgrade to the insanely popular M50 that was released in 2018. But how “brand new” is it, and does it qualify as an upgrade if all of the new features could easily have been delivered through a firmware update?

The iPhone 12 Has Dropped and So Has My Pulse

The iPhone 11 Pro hit the market last year with not two, but three lenses. It was a novel idea to have three lenses, a wide, medium and telephoto, on one phone body. Given that the iPhone 11 series was widely regarded as a stepping stone year, I had high hopes for something big for photography in the iPhone 12. And I was disappointed.

Positive Developments and Negative Attitudes: A Word on Color and Conversion


This post is by Ludwig Hagelstein from PetaPixel

Color is complex. Achieving great color can be cumbersome, both in analog and digital workflows, and developing and researching it has been as hard as rocket science.

Since the advent of the so-called “analog resurgence,” the trope of the “true color of film” has been endlessly reiterated; over and over, to support or break arguments, to value and devalue work, and perhaps, to differentiate own from other. It has been a misconception employed by both those stubborn enough to only regard a photograph printed in the darkroom as a “real” photograph and by those marketing their uniformly looking wedding images

What does AI mean for portrait photographers?

All the big players in photography software are leaning heavily into artificial intelligence technology. As a family and wedding photographer, tech that helps me cut down on repetitive and boring tasks is a welcome prospect. Adobe’s AI engine, Sensei, reportedly “brings the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to experiences—deepening insights, enhancing creative […]

Can the Fuji GF 45-100mm f/4 Speed up Workflow and Keep up With a Fast-Paced Professional Shoot?

As all medium format shooters know, moving fast with larger sensor cameras can be a challenge compared to their full frame counterparts. So, I recently tried out the Fuji GFX GF 45mm-100mm f/4 R LM OIS WR to see if it would speed my workflow and unlock additional potential in my Fuji GFX system.

4 Things I’ve Learnt About Photography in 2020 (so far)

What a strange year this has been, right? Yet, curiously, this has also been a year in which I have probably taken the greatest leaps in my photography for some time. Because when you are doing something new, or have been pushed into a new way of life, you can either freeze and panic… or you can use it as an opportunity to try new things. To innovate.

On the 14th of October, Nikon is set to announce its latest cameras. These are due to be updates to the Z 7 and Z 6 mirrorless cameras. There are a lot of expectations, but the biggest expected update for these cameras is… the second card slot.

The Uphill Battle

Public sentiment hasn’t been in Nikon’s favor for some time now. Currently, the company sits in fourth place in the mirrorless division, and it doesn’t look like it’s gaining any significant ground. Companies like Sony and Canon have cemented their positions already and unfortunately, Nikon just doesn’t have any seriously
