I’m back from New York City, where I had the pleasure of attending Photo Plus Expo 2013. I also had a great time leading a city photo-walk with my very talented colleague, Deborah Sandidge. This year, we made the Flatiron Building the focus of our photo walk. After sunset, some of us hung around and did some long exposures with the heavy traffic and blue hour. I used my Nikon D800e with 24-70mm f/2.8 AFS G zoom Nikkor lens on a tripod to capture this image. I then processed it in Lightroom 5 and Color Efex Pro 4.

Check out “Blue Hour Monday,” a new weekly photo theme on Google Plus curated by Deborah and myself. All you need to do is post an image taken during the magical blue hour and use the hashtag #bluehourmonday on it. Each week, Deborah and I will pick and share some of our favorites with the G+ community!

But if you handle the camera based on some of the sage advice offered up around the interwebs, you might be missing out. While the advice, from a pure technical standpoint, might be valid, it might also be causing you unnecessary stress. Let’s take a look at three common technical warnings for D800 users.

Holiday Podcast With The Image Doctors

Happy Holidays from The Image Doctors!

I had the chance to sit down with my good friend, Rick Walker, and we were able to catch up on what we’ve been up to in 2012 and what we’re looking forward to doing in 2013. While the Image Doctors won’t be coming back as a regular podcast, we still enjoy discussing photography and hope you enjoy this special segment.

Sit back and relax (or fall asleep) as we discuss our experiences shooting the new Nikon D4 and D800 cameras, hear Rick’s thoughts on the new 70-200 f/4 VR Nikkor, and get some ideas on how you can make your photography fundamentally better overall.
