RCAF Vampire

There are many opportunities to photograph aircraft over the course of the summer from big air shows to smaller, local events. Getting good shots at air shows is not hard, but some tips are going to help you out.

We will use different settings for different types of shots, but do work to keep your ISO as low as possible for the best colour and dynamic range.

Understanding Radio Triggers for Flash

Ask any professional photographer and he or she will tell you that being able to control the light is incredibly important to a truly successful image. We will think about position of the light, time of day, light colour, quality and direction. When it comes time to supplement or replace the ambient light with flash, how can we achieve this goal?

Getting Started with Photo Printing at Home

Photos that are not printed are often dead. Social media lifetimes are so short that while the internet keeps everything, no one sees anything about five minutes after it’s posted. Worse are the millions of images left to die alone in the dark on hard drives.

The only way to preserve memories with any kind of chance of success is to make prints.

TTL flash is EXACTLY the same as TTL available light metering except that it meters the flash exposure and may or may not include the available light as part of the process. If we are so willing to trust TTL available light as a starting point, why not TTL flash?

GNARBOX Feature

In recent years, we have seen more and more cameras coming with dual memory card slots. Some even have two identical slots to make life easy.

If you are shooting irreplaceable images, such as at a wedding, on a trip, or at other one-time events, having a second copy of your photos gives peace of mind to those concerned about memory card loss, theft, or a card going bad.

See the full article for tips on how you can back up and edit your images using GNARBOX, without having to lug around a laptop or depend solely on memory cards.
