Even though my longest lens is a 70-200mm f/4, I’m still a big fan of wildlife photography. What’s not to like? Sitting around for hours without any luck, cursing your autofocus system, getting acquainted with mosquitos and other bugs while you wait…
Almost all photographers know about panoramas and HDRs. Most also know about focus stacking. But how often do you hear photographers talk about a fourth method of blending photos together – image averaging?
One of the better-known theories of perception is Gestalt Psychology. It deals with the way we organize information (usually visuals, but not always) into wholes. While Gestalt Theory isn’t mentioned very often in discussions about composing good photos, I think that’s a mistake.
We just uploaded our first-ever video review to YouTube, covering the Nikon Z 20mm f/1.8 S! Check it out below if you’re interested. Of course, we will also publish our usual review of this lens on Photography Life when possible, so keep an eye out.
Last week, I went out to photograph the comet NEOWISE before it disappeared. I had never seen or photographed a comet before, and it far exceeded my expectations! I filmed my process along the way, including several tips for star photography (and of course comet photography too).
We’ve just published a video with 11 of my favorite photography tricks and time savers, so check it out below if you’re interested! I wanted to make a list of practical and lesser known tricks that I rely upon all the time, and hopefully this does the job.
Along with the R5 and R6 mirrorless cameras, Canon also announced four new lenses for its full-frame mirrorless system. The lenses are as follows: 85mm f/2 Macro IS, 600mm f/11 IS, and 800mm f/11 IS, and 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS. Canon also announced two RF teleconverters as well.
Canon just announced the EOS R5, the most advanced mirrorless camera they’ve ever released, and arguably the most advanced mirrorless camera from any company today. Capable of 20 FPS at the full 45 megapixel resolution, along with native 8K RAW video, the data the R5 can process borders on the absurd.
Sitting in the shadow of the 45 megapixel EOS R5, yet nearly as impressive, the Canon EOS R6 is a feature-packed 20 megapixel mirrorless camera built with speed in mind. In fact, most of the R6’s specifications mimic those of R5, although there are some differences here and there.
