Fuji GFX 50s: Train Spotting

A few days ago I was able to take the new Fuji GFX 50s out and shoot with it. I was really hoping I would not like this camera, Fuji makes great cameras, but I did not want to be lusting for an expensive medium format system (although this camera is not expensive for a medium format). I [...]

One way to improve your eye as a photographer is to start out by studying the images of photographers whose work you admire. Don’t just look at an image, but relax and try to feel and understand what about the image appeals to you, the lighting, the subject, the contrast, the composition, the color, the mood, etc. I have [...]

Sometimes we spend more, because we are trying to spend less.

My friends high school aged son was showing me an electronics project he was working on. I noticed the delicate wiring and asked what type of soldering iron he was using. I have done enough electronic projects to know that the hardware store soldering irons are not going to work for delicate soldering. He said he was using a [...]

Has digital made you a better photographer?
