Kangaroos with babies in a pouch, cute koalas eating eucalyptus leaves, and the world’s most venomous snakes… All of these things come to mind when you say Australia. But have you ever heard of bowerbirds? We’ll take a closer look at two of them in today’s edition of “Behind the Photos.”
What Are Diffusers in Photography? (And How to Use Them)
A diffuser is a critical piece of equipment for flash photography. In terms of the quality of light, I’d even say that using a diffuser is more important than the flash you choose! In this article, I’ll answer all of your questions about using diffusers for flash photography and artificial light.
What Are Anamorphic Lenses, and Should You Get One?

How to Use a Flash for Wildlife Photography
What piece of equipment is the unsung hero of my wildlife photography? It’s not the camera or even the lens, but my flash. A flash opens the door to many possibilities as a wildlife photographer.

Nikon Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Field Test
