Former Image Doctors co-host Rick Walker joined me in the studio to discuss what he’s been up to (photographically speaking) over the past year. We then sat down to discuss a few things, including:

  • DSLRs vs. Mirrorless Systems
  • Cameras vs. Camera Systems
  • Tips for cleaning out your gear closet and selling old equipment

We’ve also announced a joint 2015 Colorado Wildflower workshop, June 21-24, 2015 in Crested Butte, CO. Space is limited, so sign-up soon!

Sensor Plane Podcast #14: Choosing the best lens

As mentioned in my earlier article, the best lens is the one that fits your needs. Sometimes that means having the best optics and fastest aperture, but other times other factors can trump pure optical quality. In today’s episode I take a look at some of the Nikon lenses in my kit and discuss how often I use them.

Sensor Plane #10: Moving to Lightroom

[youtube_sc url=”http://youtu.be/HY4j-BA7iHY” title=”The%20Sensor%20Plane%20Podcast%20#10:%20Moving%20to%20Lightroom” autohide=”1″]

I’ve been extremely busy this summer with field workshops and writing a new Lightroom guide, but I’m back to bring you all up to speed on what I’ve been doing. In today’s episode, I want to discuss frequently asked questions about moving to Lightroom from other programs.

Specifically, I address:

  • Where does Lightroom store my images?
  • Why do my images look different in Lightroom?
  • Does Lightroom require sidecar files?
  • Is Lightroom only for raw files?
  • Where is the “save” button?

I also discuss the advantages of using a database (catalog)-based workflow program, like Lightroom, over traditional browser/editor workflows. Lightroom offers significant advantages for image viewing, browsing, editing, and printing.

Don’t forget to check out the fall series of Digital Underground instructional photo tours that I’ll be leading together with Deborah Sandidge. Join us this fall in Las Vegas, NV and San Antonio TX!

The Sensor Plane Photography Podcast Episode 08

In today’s episode, I take a quick look at a range of high dynamic range (HDR) techniques. From working with single images to merging multiple exposures, HDR techniques can give your photographs an interesting look. You can vary this look from the extremely natural to the intensely surreal.

The Sensor Plane Photography Podcast: Episode 7

In this episode of The Sensor Plane, I sat down with Mike Hagen, a professional photographer from Washington state, USA. Mike and I have both published books on Nikon’s Capture NX2, and were avid Capture NX2 users. We discussed the current state of Nikon NEF processing in light of the recent announcement that Nikon was dropping support for Capture NX2 and releasing a new product, Capture NX-D.

Mike and I discussed some options for current Capture NX2 users looking to move forward as Nikon transitions to the new Capture NX-D software.
