The Sensor Plane Photography Podcast: Episode #4

I had a chance to sit down with Tony Sweet for this episode of The Sensor Plane podcast. Tony and I discuss the recent advances in mirrorless camera systems; he’s started using the Fujifilm X Pro-1 and he recently took it on a photo workshop he led in Havana, Cuba.

Check out the interview here:

The Sensor Plane Photography Podcast: Episode #3

Welcome to Episode 3 of The Sensor Plane photography podcast! Today, I’m talking tripods, heads, and why you need one. More importantly, I discuss the salient features to look for when choosing a tripod and head.

My current tripod recommendations

Gitzo 2542L Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs
Holds just about anything except for large lenses like 300mm and up. This has a center column, which I removed and replaced with a Markins baseplate kit.

Gitzo 3-series 4-section tripod (long)
This tripod can hold a 600mm f/4 in a pinch. It’s perfect for just about anything, and doesn’t include a center column.

I use Really Right Stuff ball-heads and camera plates/brackets.

The Sensor Plane Photography Podcast: Episode #2

Use creative white balance to set the mood in your images.
Use white balance to set the mood in your images.

Today on the Sensor Plane I want to talk a little about an oft-overlooked creative tool: white balance. You can use the camera white balance setting to change the mood and feel of your images both directly in camera or in post. While it’s important to get proper white balance in your shots, remember that if you shoot in RAW it’s very easy to adjust after the fact.

Welcome to my latest project, a video blog called The Sensor Plane. In digital photography, the sensor plane is where light rays interact with technology. Starting today, I’ll be hosting a regular segment where I’ll talk about the technical and creative sides of digital photography.

In today’s episode, I’ll start off with a review of the two Nikon 70-200mm zoom lenses:

Here my thoughts on the practical aspects of these lenses in the video episode below. If you have suggestions for future topics, please feel free to leave a comment!
