I’m old. Believe me, I know it. I’ll be 70 in a few months. That fact may make it hard for you to take me seriously, but bear with me for just this post. With age comes wisdom, right? What I want to write here is that I think the field of photography by those making art is changing in a disturbing way. Read on.
I shoot with a Sony a6000, a Sigma 19mm f/2.8, and a vintage Helios 44-6. My entire kit cost me less than $500 (second hand) and technically, it sucks.
In this blog post, I would like to share some insights with you regarding the connection between aperture and the inverse-square law of light, as well as their effects on light fall-off.

During the Stanley Cup Finals match between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the San Jose Sharks last night, some poor photographer accidentally dropped his camera lens onto the rink through the special hole cut into the glass. The lens was then whacked like a puck before it was removed.
Using an industrial–strength robotic arm, custom software, a Canon EOS Mark ll and a 180mm macro lens converted into a telecentrical lens, Swiss photographer Daniel Boschung has created an automated portrait machine.

Wildlife photographer Steve Perry of Backcountry Gallery got his hands on the $1,997 Nikon D500 on the first day it was available. 6,000 real-world photos later, he just published this 25-minute video review with his thoughts on how the camera performs for his purposes.
Mother Nature can be such a beautiful and powerful phenomena to watch, and if you’re not careful, you can quickly become addicted to it. That’s my problem: I’m addicted, and I have been for a long time now.
Much has been written about the Steve McCurry Photoshop scandal since we originally reported on the story earlier this month. The NPPA Ethics Committee writes that the new revelations have “triggered a troubling reexamination of McCurry’s storied 40-year career.”
Steve McCurry is, perhaps, one of the most iconic names in the National Geographic pantheon. A travel photography giant, his vibrant images have inspired millions, but he’s recently come under fire over Photoshop use after a botched print at a show in Italy was found to have a serious issue.

Columbus, Ohio-based photographer Mat Marrash has been working in large format photography for the past six years — a span longer than pretty much any other hobby that’s emerged in his life. He has also spent a lot of time thinking about why photography has had such a big impact on him. He shares those musings with us in this 2.5-minute video by Rooted Content.
Gear Mat is a new product that’s designed for photographers who don’t want to use a camera case for their compact camera, yet would like more protection than none. It’s an elegant leather pad that provides “protection you need with the look you want.”
