Best Camera Settings for Bird Photography

Imagine that you’re on a beautiful beach and you see an unusual bird fly towards you. The sun is low in the sky and golden light washes over delicately patterned wings. You raise your camera, unsure of what settings to use. When you get back home, you realize the shots are blurry and overexposed – and worse, the pictures have just enough detail to identify...

Nikon Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S Announcement

Today Nikon officially unveiled its first super telephoto prime for the Z mount system, the Nikon Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S. Although we’ve known about this lens through a development announcement back in October of 2021, there was no detailed information provided, including its specifications and price. Now that the beast is out, many of our suspicious...

10 Tips for Taking Beautiful Photos in the Rain

“Rain, rain, go away, come again another day.” This line from an old nursery rhyme has popped into my head many times over the years growing up in the soggy Pacific Northwest. It came to mind again when I arrived at North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Parkway to photograph autumn and was greeted by dreary clouds dropping lots of moisture. I prefer the comfort...

Think Tank Digital Holster 150 Bag Review

Long lens users arguably have an easier time selecting camera bags, simply because there are fewer bags that will fit a long lens in the first place. Today, I will review one such bag, the Think Tank Digital Holster 150. This $110 shoulder bag is capable of holding a camera with an attached lens like a 150-600mm supertelephoto, a 70-200mm f/2.8, or...

"If I did what has already been done, I would be a plagiarist and would consider myself unworthy; so I do something different and people call me a scoundrel. I'd rather be a scoundrel than a plagiarist!" - Paul Gauguin

Are the Megapixel Wars Really Over?

Today, Leica announced the M11, a 60-megapixel successor to the M10 and M10-P. The M11’s high resolution is a bit unexpected: It's the highest resolution full-frame Leica ever. But this isn’t an article about the M11.

How to Film a Time-Lapse Video

In this article, I'll share the basics on how to film a timelapse video, no matter whether you're a beginner or an experienced photographer. Time lapses are a very popular type of cinematography in which the frequency of the captured frames is much slower than the final video play speed.

Solving the Problems of Photography in Very Cold Temperatures

Cameras usually aren't specced to shoot in very cold conditions. A small handful have a negative operating temperature (in Celsius at least), like the Nikon Z9 at -10° C / 14° F. Most others are rated for a pretty pedestrian 0° C / 32° F. But if you're aware of the issues, you can work in temperatures colder than that.

HoldFast Money Maker Dual Camera Strap Review

If you’ve spent time around wedding photographers, you've probably seen the camera straps I'm going to discuss in this article. HoldFast is a small company that makes a variety of (primarily) leather camera accessories. They take pride that all their gear is made at their facility in Oklahoma, USA.

Why Shoot Large Format Film in a Digital World?

For the past year or so, my main camera for landscape photography hasn't been one of the newest high-resolution mirrorless cameras that I spend so much time writing about. Nor has it been an ol’ reliable DSLR. Instead, I’ve been using large format film, especially a 4x5 camera.
