Photographer Dave Morrow spends most of the year traveling and backpacking while capturing stunning landscape photos, which you can see here. As part of his ongoing "Landscape Photography Journals" video series, Morrow has dedicated a pair of videos to histogram shooting techniques and better understanding RGB and luminosity histograms. The first video offers a great behind the scenes look of Morrow about two months into his fall photography journey. In a California desert, he starts by setting up camp and then going through his...

Click here to read my Canon M100 Field Test Part II In my first Canon EOS M100 Field Test, I looked at the mirrorless camera's performance when capturing still images. It impressed me quite a lot. In the M100 Field Test Part II, I have focused on the camera's capabilities for video recording. Thanks to its Dual Pixel CMOS AF autofocus and metering abilities, the Canon M100 makes capturing nice-looking video very simple. The touchscreen user interface works well for video recording as well, especially when considering the... (read more) [...]

A half-century ago, much of the world appeared to be in a state of crisis. Protests erupted in France, Czechoslovakia. Germany, Mexico, Brazil, the United States, and many other places. Some of these protests ended peacefully; many were put down harshly. Two of the biggest catalysts for protest were the U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War and the ongoing lack of civil rights in the U.S. and elsewhere. Two of America’s most prominent leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Senator Robert F. Kennedy, were assassinated within months of each other. But some lessons were being learned and some progress [...]

Sometimes people are just tired during a photoshoot or perhaps they naturally have very dark circles under their eyes. No matter the reason, it often makes subjects look tired or just not very lively. It's easy to reduce dark circles under eyes using Photoshop, however, as we can see in the tutorial below from Phlearn. To reduce dark circles under the eyes, we will utilize a "blend if" technique with a curves adjustment layer, such that we will be affecting only the darks in the image. After lightening the dark circles, we will... [...]

This week, in Manila, Philippines, hundreds of thousands of Catholic devotees took part in an annual procession lasting 22 hours, where they carry a centuries-old icon of Jesus Christ through the streets as barefoot worshipers climb over each other to kiss, touch, or rub bits of cloth on the statue. The Black Nazarene is an ebony statue of Jesus Christ brought to the Philippines in 1606, and is believed to have miraculous powers. [...]

As a photographer who primarily shoots landscapes, I am often faced with beautiful views when out in the field but those excellent vistas do not always make for great images. It can be confusing for non-photographers to see me standing around in a lovely park and not capture any photos, but as seasoned photographers are aware, a great view doesn't always make a great image. This is the theme of photographer Thomas Heaton's newest video. In the video below, Heaton uses a Canon 70-200mm lens on his Canon 5D Mark IV camera. He's... [...]

When you are shooting high ISO images, it can often be difficult to balance noise reduction and sharpening during your RAW processing.

It is often the case that you have to perform both noise reduction and sharpening when processing your RAW files. On the other hand,... (read more) [...]

For quite a long time I and many photographers and videographers I know have been clamoring, nay begging, for a mobile backup solution that wouldn't require a computer to operate. When you’re really out there in the bush and trying to create content, especially with a drone, the last thing you want to do is rely on a laptop or, heck, be forced to bring it to begin with. What we’ve been looking for isn’t a new concept, but for some reason it is an idea that has not seen modernization. Finally, someone appears to be taking our... [...]

According to a report by the International Union for Conservation of Nature in 2016, the total population of mountain gorillas living in the wild is about 880. These remaining critically endangered gorillas live within four national parks in the central African countries of Uganda, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. For decades, the survival of mountain gorillas has been threatened by human activity—by habitat loss due to farming, by war and unrest that can cause both physical harm and habitat loss, and by poaching—either intentional trapping or unintentional harm caused by traps set for other animals. Conservation efforts in [...]

Mid-winter temperatures have gripped the Northern Hemisphere, and much of North America is currently caught in a deep freeze. Yesterday morning, parts of all 50 states were below freezing. Some are bundling up and making the most of the weather, skiing, fishing, or taking a polar bear plunge—while others are struggling to cope and working hard against the elements. As the East Coast of the United States prepares for an approaching storm scarily called a “bomb cyclone,” I have gathered a collection of recent chilly images from across the North. [...]

Four consecutive years of drought have put several biblical bodies of water at risk: the Sea of Galilee, the Jordan River, and the Dead Sea. The AP photographer Oded Balilty spent much of last year documenting these bodies of water and the ways locals and tourists play and worship there. The AP reports that “the Sea of Galilee stands at a century low, much of the Jordan River is a fetid trickle and the Dead Sea is rapidly shrinking.” Current predictions for the remaining winter months remain drier than normal, as farmers and residents struggle to cope, and pray for [...]
