Here are a few things to consider when deciding between the Nikon D850 and Nikon Z7 cameras.
Canon has entered the full-frame mirrorless game with their new EOS-R and EOS-RP. But with so many new cameras on the market, why should you go with these?
1. Really Freakin’ nice lenses – Canon’s new RF mount has introduced a new lens selection, and they’re all… Really Freakin’ nice. Like the gorgeously sharp 50mm f1.2, or the 28-70mm F2 lens, which is the fastest zoom of this focal range on the market today
The digital age has made photography so much more accessible, but so often all these digital images get lost and hidden away in the depths of a hard drive. But, printing your work has so many benefits that we forget about between the 0’s and 1’s.
1. Tangibility – There’s a reason that printing is often termed “photo finishing” – because having a tangible finished print is a whole different experience than just looking at a screen.
2. Visibility – You go on vacation with your digital camera, take 3000 photos, get home and download them, and you never look at them again. Sound familiar? Choosing a few favourite images and printing them simply means they get seen. Whether it’s framed above the fireplace or filed in a photo album, physical prints allow you and everyone around you to actually enjoy them.
A camera is a tool, according to Steve Speer, a process-driven professional photographer, and a self-proclaimed “non-gearhead”. He captures commercial quality images that have been printed across entire buildings as well as tiny fine-art framed prints enhanced with precious metals.
Speer finds the process of photography to be one of perpetual gratification. Creating a tangible print is just as important to him as the experience of capturing the image. With that being said, what does a fine art photographer with a commercial pedigree capture his images with?
Nature is full of incredible subjects and textures. The closer you look, the more there is, and so many interesting photographs can be created with these as subjects. Take a look at five tips to improve your close-up photography.
1. Get a macro lens – Macro lenses are specifically designed for close up photography. They’re sharp, they focus close, and they’ll become a versatile part of your camera bag, since they also double as great portrait or low-light lenses.
