Rank #1: Why every photographer needs an ND filter

Podcast cover
Read more
Neutral Density filters are extremely useful in video and still photography applications when you want to control light and use lower shutter speeds.

Check out Blackstone filters at http://www.winecountry.camera/
You can get 15% off of anything in the store by using offer code AOP on checkout.

Typically in video you will get the best motion estimation by using a 180 degree shutter. This is double the frame-rate of your video clip. In still photography and landscapes you want to be able to capture motion of things like clouds or water for a dramatic effect.

All ND filters are not created equal. Color casts are a huge problem as are distortions from glass inconsistencies. I use only Blackstone filters for this reason.

Rank #3: The ONE best use for Lightroom when traveling

Podcast cover
Read more
Adobe Lightroom Mobile is great at letting you take better photos while traveling. One of my favorite tricks is to use Lightroom Mobile Sync to get all of my RAW files and edits back on to my desktop computer and into my image archive when I return to the studio. In this photo editing tutorial I'll show you how to edit photos in Lightroom Mobile on the go and how to seamlessly move transfer them through the cloud to Adobe Lightroom on my desktop computer. This is one of my favorite tips for how to edit travel photos while on the road.

Rank #6: FujiFilm X-T2 :: Design Which Blows Every Other Camera Away

Podcast cover
Read more
Fujifilm has designed a photography gem with the Fujifilm X-T2. The feature I’m most impressed by is the way they have considered the user experience of photographers in the design. The Fujifilm X-t2 is one of the most intuitive mirrorless cameras I’ve used and I think its an example for all camera manufacturers to learn from.

Rank #9: Bokeh

Podcast cover
Read more
Apple announced 3 new phones today - the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and the iPhone XR.

There doesn't seem to be any upgrades to the cameras in these phones, but what actually impressed me is the processing power. Apple has introduced the new A12 Bionic sensor with the next-generation Neural Engine. There is a 50% graphics boost, 15% performance core boost, and 50% lower power usage. Apple is now claiming 5 trillion calculations per second. This is going to make things really interesting if we can get past portrait mode and see what 3rd parties such as Adobe will do. Lightroom Mobile is getting closer to what the desktop version can do and this performance boost is a big game changer.

Also noteworthy is the new Super Retina display, advanced facial recognition, depth control and of course… lots of bokeh.

Watch the video to…
• Watch Phil Schiller talk about Bokeh
• Understand deeper pixels
• Be tempted to buy a new phone
• See how lenses are much like cheese

Rank #11: Why you won't succeed in photography

Podcast cover
Read more
Success requires work. It also requires understanding how to get people's attention.

I got a question from a viewer about how to succeed in photography. This individual is somewhat frustrated and its completely understandable. I personally believe that everyone in the world has the power to do anything they want. There are countless people who are proof of this. But the bottom line is that most can't/don't/won't which is why my advice should fire you up even more.

• Define what you are trying to succeed at specifically. Chase that goal, but don't close yourself off to other opportunities.
• Be careful about "creating work for yourself"
• Do the work. This is the most obvious, but its the most difficult. Its also what makes people ultimately give up. Do the work.

Rank #13: The WIDEST lens Hasselblad has produced to date :: Hasselblad 21mm f/4 review

Podcast cover
Read more
The Hasselblad 21mm f/4 is the widest lens Hasselblad has produced to date. The closest focal range this would come close to would be the Fujifilm 23mm GFX.

This lens has a full frame equivalent to about 17mm - it is wide. Its also extremely impressive in terms of performance. This is a difficult lens to design within the limitations of portability, price, and fitting in with the rest of the system. The engineers at Hasselblad have done a brilliant job with this lens.

Its very much a technical lens with incredible distortion control and edge to edge sharpness. The 21mm f/4 is perfect for architectural photography - particularly interiors and tight spaces that can be challenging to photograph.

The lens features 13 elements in 9 groups, 2 aspherical elements, an aperture range of f/4 to f/32, central lens shutter with up to 1/2000 sec flash sync, internal focusing with manual focus override and a front filter threading of 77mm.

Hasselblad were kind enough to loan me one from the first production run for a week to test.

Rank #17: Get started FAST in Capture One Pro

Podcast cover
Read more
In this photography editing tutorial, we're going to look at one of my favorite editing software applications - Capture One.

Capture One is an incredible application for editing RAW files. Compared to Adobe Lightroom it offers much more power and options however the user interface is quite different. Here are 5 tips to get you started working in Capture One Pro faster.

If you're used to using Adobe Lightroom, Capture One can seem like a higher learning curve. The interface is quite different, but if you learn a few basic things it can get you going quickly with photography editing.

In this video I'll cover sessions vs catalog, the customizable interface, working tools, adjustment layers and output options.

You can download a free trial version of Capture One here:

Rank #19: Why Sony is absolutely KILLING it right now

Podcast cover
Read more
Love them or hate them, Sony has come to a point with their alpha series mirrorless camera lineup where they are dominating the mirrorless market. So much so that Nikon and Canon are aggressively designing mirrorless systems of their own.

As someone who's had faith in Sony since the early days of e-mount, I want to share a few thoughts on what differentiates a mirrorless camera from a traditional DSLR. It goes way beyond the fact that the mirror is gone so the camera can be smaller. Its a system-wide approach and I think this will shed a little bit of light on what Canon and Nikon are facing putting together their own systems.

DJI recently released its "GoPro killer" - the DJI Osmo Action. I've been using this camera for about a week now - so how does it stack up to the GoPro Hero7 Black? Both do 4k video and 12 megapixel stills. Both have incredible image stabilization (with a slight edge to the Osmo). But what about timelapse, hyperlaps and the other features action cameras are now expected to have? We'll take a look in this video.

Is THIS the FUTURE of Photo and Video Editing?

Podcast cover

Promotional and other consideration provided by NVIDIA

For more on blazing fast GPU check out https://nvda.ws/2VLmFAX

GPU cards are an essential part off the graphic performance in your computer. In this video we’ll take a look at an external GPU or eGPU setup.

I'm using a Dell XPS 15 9570 laptop, but you can use any laptop that supports Thunderbolt 3 and has a minimum of 16GB of RAM and an i5 processor (i7 8th generation recommended) - this could be somethign like the Razer Blade 15, Razer Blade Stealth or HP Spectre 13. You can also run an eGPU with a Macbook but using NVIDIA cards is going to require a lot of workarounds.

This is an excellent way to speed up the performance of applications such as Lightroom, Premiere Pro and After Effects by adding an external GPU card.

Also worth noting - as I am posting this video, NVIDIA has just announced as I’m releasing this video, NVIDIA has announced their new RTX Studio laptops. These new Laptops are designed for creative work and are boasting some serious specs. The new Studio drivers have been tested extensively with applications by Adobe, Epic, Autodesk, Unity and Blackmagic Design specifically with creative workflows in mind.

How to copy the COLOR GRADE of ANY Image

Podcast cover
Read more
Learn how to match the color grade from any image to one of your own!

Check out my Preset Pack for Adobe Lightroom/Adobe ACR http://theartofphotography.tv/presets

The heart of color grading comes down to understanding how light and color work in the highlight, midtone and shadow areas of a photograph. In this video I'll use Adobe Photoshop to illustrate the concept and how it works. Of course this same idea can be applied to any software application that you are using for photography (Lightroom, Luminare, DX0, Capture One etc).

• Understand how to sample colors and see toning in both shadow and highlight detail
• find the midtones
• match a color grade using a color balance adjustment layer
• match a color grade using a curves adjustment layer

Lumafusion is an incredible NLE from some former Avid developers that literally makes it possible to take advantage of the iPad for video editing. I've switched over to editing on mobile this year and use it on my iPad pro as well as my iPhone. Both are faster than my desktop computer. I talked about this in a video a few weeks ago and had a good number of requests for a tutorial. So here it is!

Of course, this video was edited in Lumafusion ;-)

Brooklyn Footage with the Sony 135mm G Master

Podcast cover

This is a short film with video footage and stills with the Sony 135mm f/1.8 G Master portrait lens.

I thought I'd do something different for this video since I had so much good stuff from the Sony shoot. So this is presented as a short collection of visuals without me talking. If you want to see the full review - the video is below.

Thanks to Sony for organizing the event at the Greenpoint Terminal Station which is an event space in Brooklyn, NY.

Video footage was shot with the 135mm G Master on a Sony A7 III
Stills were shot with the 135 G Master on a Sony A9

The ULTIMATE PORTRAIT LENS? :: Sony 135mm f/1.8 G Master

Podcast cover
Read more
The Sony 135mm f/1.8 G Master lens is the 31st lens in Sony's full-frame, e-mount lineup.

I quickly fell in love with this lens - it is outstanding. Designed for longer portraits, this has some of the best optical rendering that I've seen on any lens to date. This is the ultimate portrait lens. Bokeh is excellent, it has outstanding sharpness and the autofocus speeds are impressive. This has the same XD linear drive system that is found in the Sony 400mm f/2.8 G Master as well as the Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master lenses.

One correction - around 03:17 I say there's little spherical aberration at small apertures when in face I meant to say diffraction. This is where the sharpness softens in the lens and for most lenses this starts around f/16. Its been a long week - sorry for the confusion.

There was a huge surprise in the mail today!

I get some amazing things sent to me by viewers. Today I got two Sam Haskins books that are fabulous!

Sam Haskins was a British-born, South African photographer famous for his photo books in the 1960's. These featured his style of "in camera" montage images. His son Ludwig Haskins sent these to me. What an honor!

Canon EOS RP :: Why?

Podcast cover
Read more
Canon has just announced a new entry level, full frame mirrorless camera - the Canon EOS RP.

The most interesting features on this new camera are the RP's small size and its price. Its the most affordable full frame mirrorless camera to be introduced in the last year. But this makes me wonder, what is the point of the Canon RP? It doesn't have any more features than the DSLR cameras that currently exists, so unless your requirements are an extremely small size, why would this be a camera of interest?

Pre-order the Canon EOS R from B&H https://goo.gl/7QqFxj
or Amazon https://amzn.to/2IdP9C7

No Photography Allowed?!?!

Podcast cover
Read more
This weekend I went to Marfa, TX to visit the Chinati Foundation. Of course, no photography allowed.

I'm always the first to defend the right to photograph, but in this case I actually agree with the policy. Experiencing the works of art by Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, John Chamberlain, Robert Irwin and many others - it requires attention. These are experience and environmental works that can't be reproduced in a photograph anyway. This does make it difficult to share my experience in this video, but I can talk about these works which is probably more important anyway.

Minimalism

Podcast cover
Read more
This weekend I'm headed to Marfa, TX. Why?

The main reason is Donald Judd. Judd is one of the leading minimilist artists from the 1970's and 1980's. While working in New York City, he started purchasing property in West Texas to display his large scale environmental works. Today, Chinati features works by Judd as well as Dan Flavin, Claes Oldenberg and Robert Irwin.

I'm going to be vlogging my trip over the next few days. But before I do we need to discuss minimalism.

Panasonic S1, S1R :: First Impressions

Podcast cover
Read more
Panasonic has officially debuted the first 2 mirrorless cameras for its full frame, mirrorless L mount - the Panasonic S1 and S1R.

Or at least they sponsored an event which had cameras that sort of worked.

Despite the lack of final firmware and the minimal shooting time for those who attended, we do at least have a preview of what these cameras will do. I feel fairly optimistic. Panasonic Lumix is going to be a major player this year in the mirrorless camera market.

Both cameras available for preorder:
Panasonic S1 https://goo.gl/EZ5a5o
Panasonic S1R https://goo.gl/bZVBCw

Switching to an iPad for PHOTO and VIDEO editing?!?

Podcast cover
Read more
Can I actually use my iPhone and my iPad Pro to replace work that I do on my iMac?

The bulk of the work I do on a computer centers around photography and video. The idea of working on mobile is attractive to me because I spend a good amount of the year traveling. When I’m not traveling, I find myself back in the office chained to the desk for long hours of editing. Ideally if I could find a way to make mobile devices actually work for me, I could be more productive and have more freedom to be present in the moment - not chained to a computer.

Apple is now showing some real promise for a graphics intensive workflow - if you don't mind a few workarounds.

Fired from CANON! The Instagram Problem

Podcast cover
Read more
A recent video and article have been going around recently claiming a photographer was dropped from a job for Canon because she didn't have 50,000 followers on Instagram.

This video really got my attention - in fact, it made me angry because not only is the information not clear - its suspect. And its generally wrong. I have a few thoughts on the matter…
