I received my new f2.0 lens from B&H today. Impressively small for a “normal” lens. I expected it to be as big as the zoom lens I broke last week. It’s difficult to tell from photos, but this is a great size for a prime 50mm equivalent lens.
Someone said color is only a distraction when it comes to good photography. I put my camera in black and white mode and went out taking pictures. It’s true. You pay more attention to composition and lighting when shooting in B&W. Color is a distraction.
The topic of misused terms in photography came to me when someone asked about “the industry standard”. Industry standard implies a written, documented, industry accepted design, set of protocols and mode of operation. An example of an industry standard in photograph is ISO.
Time to review a product again. This time it is the AD200. I haven’t worked with it a whole lot, but so far I am VERY impressed.
The first time I saw this was when fellow photographer and educator Michael Mowbray posted about it on Facebook. I immediately took a look at the specifications and said, “I want one!”
You’ve heard me talk about the IceLight and my under $30 substitute. Because they are LED, they require higher ISO settings or slower shutter speeds. For this reason I set out to find a portable speedlight solution.
