Express your vision using Flash!

By | 15 March, 2015|Flash Photography, Photographic Equipment, Photography Lighting, Portrait Photography, Wedding Photography|

In the On-Location Lighting workshop I teach our students that one of the 7 reasons to use flash is to express your vision. As photographers, light is the notes we use to compose a song. If you only know half the notes the song you create will be pretty limited in tone and originality. If you however know the full range of notes you can create a masterpiece! If we are able to recognize and make use of natural light as well as incorporate artificial light where needed we can truly express our vision and create our own masterpieces!

Canon 70D launches with revolutionary autofocus system

By | 2 July, 2013|Cameras, Photographic Equipment|

In the morning hours of South African time the Canon EOS 70D DSLR camera was launched with much hype. The EOS 70D succeeds the rather "ordinary" 60D and it does so with an explosion of new features. From the specs, it will be a worthy rival to Nikon's D7100, but I would have to get my hand on one in order to prevent unfair assumptions.

Fujifilm X-E1 Camera Review

By | 11 April, 2013|Cameras, Photographic Equipment|

Fujifilm X-E1 Camera Review Previously I reviewed the Fujifilm X-Pro1 with mixed feelings about the product. Its high price point gave me some serious expectations, but I was left rather, with serious reservations. A lot of these have since been addressed in the X-E1, and the result is a camera which makes a lot more sense to me. It is very encouraging to see the progress Fujifilm makes from one model to the next, they are shaping up to be a camera manufacturer well worth keeping an eye on.

By | 21 February, 2013|Cameras, Photographic Equipment|

It is finally here, the Nikon D7100! It comes 2 years after it's predecessor, the very popular Nikon D7000. The D7100 is sure to be Nikon's flagship DX frame option and the hopes of seeing a much rumored D400 that sit between the D7000 and new D600 is now surely no longer an option. I will try to post a more complete review on it, as soon as we can get one. In the meantime, let;s look at the specs that's available.

Cleaning Camera Lenses and Sensors... Using your time to fix spots on every photo you take over the duration of a shoot, uses more time than cleaning your equipment before every shoot. Your photography equipment is very expensive and so this needs to be done with great care.

Review of the Fujifilm X-Pro1

By | 4 September, 2012|Photographic Equipment|

I have been given the Fujifilm X-Pro1 to play with. And Play I have. It is a very interesting camera and very different from what I am used to, it is a bold design that is hard to ignore as it is very different from other digital cameras available. It is retro styled and reminiscent of the rangefinder cameras we grew up with. It is a mirrorless cameras which has a 16.3 megapixels APS-C CMOS sensor, with interchangeable lenses. Okay, fair enough but why?
