Only a Distraction

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.

Misused Terms in Photography

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.

Product Review AD200

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.
