How to get EPIC PHOTOS with Chris Hau and Stan Moniz
Spent the weekend photographing landscapes and astro with the Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master with Chris Hau and Stan Moniz!

ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY and the SONY 24mm f/1.4 GM Lens Real World Review
The Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 G Master is incredible for Astrophotography. Available from B&H https://goo.gl/HjL1Kc This weekend I was invited to Sedona, AZ for a Sony trip to use the 24mm f/1.4 gm to shoot the night sky. This lens is absolutely incredible - I've had the chance to use it before, but not in an astrophotography setting. I compared the Sony 24mm against the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 Art and the Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4 We were joined by Stan Moniz and José Francisco Salgado - be sure to check out their work! Stan Moniz https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCthsmh56Kag8qnslXD4vd6g José Francisco Salgado http://josefrancisco.org/ What I love about the Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master • Excellent low-light performance • beautiful depth of field • almost no sagittal coma flare • very low chromatic abberation even wide open • light weight • fast auto-focus • reasonable price point - performs better than lenses 5 times as expesive Check out my other videos: • Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aW-xRCrZXIc • Why Sony is Killing It Right Now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hYMgDT_iAI • How Good Are Sony Lenses? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLJQG_pU3J4 • Sony 400mm f/2.8 G Master https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pix0A5TGn8 Music is from Epidemic Sound.

Sony SENSOR hack - seeing light differently
I recently had my Sony NEX 7 modified as a full-spectrum camera. Essentially this means the sensor will recognize the visual spectrum in addition to Ultra-violet and Infrared light. By using various filters on the lens, you can achieve some interesting results by limiting the light spectrum for both photography and video. This weekend I'm going on another Sony trip to shoot some astro photography with Stan Moniz. Make sure you check out his channel and subscribe! Stan Moniz https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCthsmh56Kag8qnslXD4vd6g My camera was modified by Precision Camera - thanks to Sony for helping out with that!

The BEST LENS money can buy :: Hasselblad 80mm f/1.9
The Hasselblad 80mm f/1.9 is incredible. Its a major addition to the Hasselblad X1D lens lineup in that it has an incredible personality. Available in December 2018 at B&H https://goo.gl/hnLeUZ The Hasselblad X1D is still a fairly young system. Hasselblad has a roadmap of coming lenses and the 80mm f/1.9 is the 6th lens in the lineup. More importantly this lens represents an unusual lens type for medium format in its aperture. There currently is no lens like this available on any native medium format system and that's what makes this special. Hasselblad have developed a new voice and if this is any indication of the future direction, its going to be incredible. • 80.5mm f/1.9 • 14 elements in 9 groups • Aperture range f/1.9 to f/32 • 77mm filter threading • 2.30 lb / 1044 g Check out my other videos: • Why Sony Is Killing It Right Now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hYMgDT_iAI • Oh Canon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMey53Y44e0 • Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aW-xRCrZXIc • Sony 400mm f/2.8 G Master https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pix0A5TGn8 • Sony A7 III https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVnMQAHjbLg Music is from Epidemic Sound.

ANNOUNCED at PhotoPlus (sort of)
You've heard all the camera rumors, but here's another teaser of something coming soon. Last week I was at PhotoPlus Expo 2018 in New York City.

I just received a Nikon Z6 and I'm off to Florida tomorrow to put this thru the paces.

Why every photographer needs an ND filter
Neutral Density filters are extremely useful in video and still photography applications when you want to control light and use lower shutter speeds. Check out Blackstone filters at http://www.winecountry.camera/ You can get 15% off of anything in the store by using offer code AOP on checkout. Typically in video you will get the best motion estimation by using a 180 degree shutter. This is double the frame-rate of your video clip. In still photography and landscapes you want to be able to capture motion of things like clouds or water for a dramatic effect. All ND filters are not created equal. Color casts are a huge problem as are distortions from glass inconsistencies. I use only Blackstone filters for this reason. Music is from Epidemic Sound.

Photographing the Blue Angels with the Sony A9
I had the opportunity to photograph the Blue Angels at the Miramar air show this weekend when Sony flew me and several journalists to San Diego to work with the Sony A9 and the 400mm f/2.8 lens. I also had the privilege of learning from 2 of the finest aviation photographers working today - Frank Crebas and Larry Grace. They gave me some wonderful tips on how to shoot aviation in broad sunlight. The Sony A9 is simply outstanding. With its stacked CMOS sensor it is capable of shooting raw files at 20 frames a second with no blackout in the viewfinder. More importantly it can adjust the autofocus up to 60 times a second. It is one of the fastest and most powerful mirrorless cameras I have used to date. Music is from Epidemic Sound. If you need music for your videos, Epidemic is simply the best in the business.

Fujifilm GFX 50R and 100S announcements!
Fujifilm have announced the GFX 50R and the Fujifilm 100S concept cameras. Both of these are medium format. The GFX 50R is a compact, "rangefinder" style version of their previous camera - the Fujifilm GFX 50S. It brings over the same sensor in a much smaller and more portable configuration. The price point is considerably lower as well. Also added is Bluetooth integration. The Fujifilm GFX 100S concept is a camera to be released in 2019. This is where things get particularly interesting. The 100S will feature a 102 megapixel sensor, IBIS (in-body image stabilization) as well as 4k video and phase detection autofocus across the entire sensor. I'm guessing this will be an entirely new sensor likely not built by Sony. But my favorite announcement today is the Fujifilm partnership with Phase One in the Capture One software. Capture One has not supported any medium format cameras other than Phase One until now. This is a huge step forward. I love Capture One and use it all the time. But this has been a stumbling block for Capture One - they have to support all cameras if they intend to gain traction in the raw image editor application space. Over view of Fujifilm announcements: • Fujifilm GFX 50R - smaller rangefinder style body, 50 megapixel sensor • Fujifilm GFX 100S - Concept camera to be released in 2019 • Capture One support for Fujifilm Medium Format Cameras and film profiles Music is from Epidemic Sound.

Why you won't succeed in photography
Success requires work. It also requires understanding how to get people's attention. I got a question from a viewer about how to succeed in photography. This individual is somewhat frustrated and its completely understandable. I personally believe that everyone in the world has the power to do anything they want. There are countless people who are proof of this. But the bottom line is that most can't/don't/won't which is why my advice should fire you up even more. • Define what you are trying to succeed at specifically. Chase that goal, but don't close yourself off to other opportunities. • Be careful about "creating work for yourself" • Do the work. This is the most obvious, but its the most difficult. Its also what makes people ultimately give up. Do the work. Music is from Epidemic Sound. If you need music for your videos, Epidemic is simply the best in the business.

What about the Fujifilm 16mm f/1.4 compared to the Sony 24mm f/1.4 G Master
Is the Fujifilm 16mm f/1.4 comparable to the new Sony 24mm f/1.4? In short, its a tough comparison. They both have the same field of view in the end result - one is full frame and the other is designed for APS-C mirrorless. But physically they are 2 different focal lengths. These mean different designs, different intent and so on. But since we're talking about the Fujinon 16mm f/1.4, this is one of my favorite lenses of all time regardless of system. Its an incredible wide angle with excellent contrast, sharpness and bokeh. It has a minimum focusing distance of just under 6 inches and is fast enough to use in low light and get great results. • 13 elements in 11 groups • 2 aspherical and 2 extra low dispersion elements • f/1.4 to f/16 aperture range (22 stops) • 1/3 stop increments • 9 blades (rounded diaphragm opening) • Focus Range – 15cm to infinity • filter size - 67mm • Autofocus Motor: DC coreless Music is from Epidemic Sound.

How good are Sony lenses?
Sony is making some of the best full frame mirrorless cameras in the world. How do their lenses stack up to the other options? The last 2 mirrorless lenses that Sony has produced have shown us the direction things will be going in the next few years. Not only are the designs extremely innovative but also the materials used in these lenses. Sony have a method of producing XA elements, or Extreme Aspherical elements in a way where they can both dial in the clarity of bokeh in an image and also reduce sagittal flaring issues in astro photography. XA elements are made by molding glass, not grinding. So there is a much greater control to smoothness to tolerances of 0.01 microns. Bokeh is also controlled with the use of 11 aperture blades over the traditional 9 (Canon uses 8). This allows you to maintain a circular aperture when stopping down slightly to get a better optical performance out of the lens. And finally Sony has created essentially a solid state camera with the development of direct drive super sonic wave motors that are used in the autofocus system. This allows for faster, more accurate and quiet autofocus. Music is from Epidemic Sound. If you need music for your videos, Epidemic is simply the best in the business.

$1399 Sony Masterpiece :: 24mm f/1.4 G Master
The Sony FE 24mm f/1.4 G Master is the 30th lens in the Sony native E-mount lineup designed for full frame alpha cameras.

Deepest Pixels :: Leica SL first look
This week Leica sent me the Leica SL and the 24-90mm f/2.8-4 lens to check out. I want to share with you a few first impressions - this thing is a tank. The Leica SL is a full frame, mirrorless camera with a 24 megapixel sensor. It shoots 4k/30p video. It also features a beautifully minimal interface, joystick and a .8x magnification viewfinder. And its heavy. Very heavy. Heavy pixels. However the image quality is simply outstanding. Its a Leica and they have a long history of making some of the most beautiful lenses ever produced so I'm super excited to share this with you over the next 2 weeks. • Leica SL (Typ 601) • Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm f/2.8-4 ASPH. zoom lens • 24 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor • Leica Maestro II Image Processor • 14-bit • Internal DCI 4k Video • L-log Gama • 11fps burst rate • 33 frame buffer depth • ISO 50-50000 • 1/250 second flash sync Music is from Epidemic Sound.

Bokeh
Apple announced 3 new phones today - the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and the iPhone XR. There doesn't seem to be any upgrades to the cameras in these phones, but what actually impressed me is the processing power. Apple has introduced the new A12 Bionic sensor with the next-generation Neural Engine. There is a 50% graphics boost, 15% performance core boost, and 50% lower power usage. Apple is now claiming 5 trillion calculations per second. This is going to make things really interesting if we can get past portrait mode and see what 3rd parties such as Adobe will do. Lightroom Mobile is getting closer to what the desktop version can do and this performance boost is a big game changer. Also noteworthy is the new Super Retina display, advanced facial recognition, depth control and of course… lots of bokeh.

What they got wrong
There is an enormously missed opportunity in the world of photography today. We have more technology than ever before and we don't do very much with it. This week we saw 3 major announcements, the Nikon Z7 and Z6, the Canon EOS R and the Fujifilm X-T3. In the history of photography I've never seen a marketing blitzkrieg like we've seen over the last few weeks. And the funny thing is people respond not by making amazing things, but by fighting on the internet. Canon invites us to be part of the revolution. Lets look at some actual revolutionary moments in photography. Music is from Epidemic Sound. If you need music for your videos, Epidemic is simply the best in the business.

Fujifilm nailed this…
Fuji has announced the Fujifilm X-T3, their latest X-Mount, APS-C flagship camera. They have absolutely nailed it. This camera looks incredible. The X-T3 features not only a new sensor, the Fujifilm X-Trans 4, but also the new X-Processor 4 which is both more powerful and more energy efficient. They've designed this new sensor with 425 phase-detection autofocus points that cover the entire frame. They've also delivered a mirrorless camera that shoots 4k/60p video at 10bit. New Features: • Low illuminance limit of PDAF is now -3EV from -1EV • New Sports Finder Mode – features blackout-free, high-speed continuous shooting (30fps crop electronic shutter, 11 fps mechanical shutter) • New Pre-shooting function, starts recording when you press the shutter half way (up to 20 frames pre, 20 frames actual, total of 40 frames to play with) • Standard ISO: 160 to 12800 • EVF – 0.5 type organic finder – 3.69 million dots – 0.75x • LCD screen – 3.0, 1.04 million dots • 3 way tilt screen (no forward facing) • touch panel • 4k / 60p • 4:2:0 10 bit video in camera • 4:2:2 10 bit HDMI output • Hybrid Log Gamma by firmware update in 2018 • Simultaneous film simulation/f-log output by firmware in 2018 Music is from Epidemic Sound.

Oh Canon…
Today Canon released the Canon EOS R, full-frame mirrorless camera. This is an entirely new lens mount for Canon and so an entirely new system. Canon has been pretty quiet over the last few years and Sony has made it quite obvious that the competition has fallen behind. Canon also announced 4 lenses - a 24-105mm, 28-70mm, 35mm and a 50mm. Is the Canon system enough to compete with the Nikon Z6 and Z7? Does it compete with Sony? Lets break it down. The Canon EOS R • 30MP full frame sensor • Dual Pixel Raw, micro-adjustment, bokeh shift and ghosting reduction • 5,655 selectable AF points • 8fps burst rate with one-shot AF • 5fps burst rate with servo AF/AE • 1 SD card slot – UHS-II compatible • UGD 4k up to 25/30p – 1.6x crop • Canon log profile • 4k uncompressed 10 bit HDMI output • HDR movie, 4k Time-lapse movie • Focus Peaking / Focus Distance Indicator • 3.1″ vari-angle, 2.1 million dot LCD with touch control • GPS via phone app • Wi-fi/Bluetooth • LP-E6 / LP-E6N Battery And unfortunately way too many "gotchas" on these features.

Fujifilm X-T100 :: The New Best Deal In Photography?
Fujifilm were kind enough to send me the new X-T100 to check out. This might be the best deal in photography. The Fujifilm X-T100 is a budget conscious, mirrorless camera designed to fit Fujifilm X-Mount lenses. Clearly there are some things that are held back to make this camera affordable but almost all the features and the image quality you expect from Fujifilm is there. I was actually extremely impressed with the X-T100. If you're on a budget, its a great camera to start with and spend the extra money on lenses. • Mirrorless APS-C camera design • Fuji Image Quality is on point • Supports XF lenses and leaves money left over to buy them • Excellent all around camera for photographers at any level Music is from Epidemic Sound.

The DJI Mavic Pro 2 is the latest drone from DJI. It features a Hasselblad camera, 1 inch sensor, Hasselblad Natural Color Solution and a 10-bit Dlog-M color profile. Today DJI has announced 2 new models in the DJI Mavic series, the Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom. DJI were kind enough to send me the Mavic 2 Pro. I was really excited to see how the new camera and 1 inch sensor delivered image quality and I was not disappointed. The footage is amazing. The new camera and sensor not only look incredible, but the extend the range of what you are able to do with this drone. You get 14 EV of dynamic range and an incredible 10-bit, 4k video file with the option of HLG or Dlog-M picture profiles. These offer an incredible range for grading your footage in post and making it look fabulous.

Dear Nikon
This week, Nikon is expected to announce their new full frame mirrorless system with the Nikon Z7 and the Nikon Z6. Over the last few years we've seen Fujifilm and Sony develop some really interesting mirrorless camera systems. Panasonic and Olypmus have had mirrorless cameras with their micro 4/3 system. The next month is going to be very interesting in terms of camera announcements from Nikon, followed immediately by Canon and then rumors say Sony will follow with another as well. But the interesting newcomer is Nikon. Nikon failed with their last mirrorless attempt - the Nikon 1. So far we know there are likely 2 camera bodies they will announce as well as 3 lenses and an adapter for the older F mount lenses. Will this be enough to compete with Sony and Fuji who already have fully developed systems? These are my thoughts as to what Nikon need to succeed: • Develop a sensor that gives us dynamic range like we're seeing with Medium Format Cameras • Develop an autofocus system that competes with Sony's Eye AF • Develop some actually interesting lenses, not just generic f/2.8 zooms • Provide some legitimate video options - 4k, high frame rate, log profiles and 10-bit. • Find a niche and figure out what will make people want to use Nikon This video is sponsored by Squarespace.

The studio is trashed!
I've been in this studio space for the last 3 years and I'll admit that in my haste of moving in I did a pretty poor job of organizing. The clutter has finally caught up with me and its time for a studio makeover! I thought it would be interesting to show you what I'm working on because as photographers, we tend to accumulate a lot of stuff. Identifying the clutter is the hardest part but once we have this figured out its fairly easy to get cleaned up and organized. Watch this video to identify clutter and find storage solutions: Cameras and Lenses Random Cables Consumables (film, paper, SD cards etc) Accessories (tripods, grip equipment etc) Books (Photography books and mail sent by viewers) Flat Storage (prints, negatives, paper work) Music is from Epidemic Sound.

Why Sony is absolutely KILLING it right now
Love them or hate them, Sony has come to a point with their alpha series mirrorless camera lineup where they are dominating the mirrorless market. So much so that Nikon and Canon are aggressively designing mirrorless systems of their own. As someone who's had faith in Sony since the early days of e-mount, I want to share a few thoughts on what differentiates a mirrorless camera from a traditional DSLR. It goes way beyond the fact that the mirror is gone so the camera can be smaller. Its a system-wide approach and I think this will shed a little bit of light on what Canon and Nikon are facing putting together their own systems.

Check out Datacolor's Spyder5PRO:: http://bit.ly/ArtofP_Spyder Use the promo code "TED" at checkout for a 15% discount (Valid through 9/30/2018) This video is sponsored by Datacolor. Calibrating your display is probably the most important thing that every photographer should be doing, but for whatever reason most don't. In this video I'll show you how you can use tools such as the Spyder5 and the SpyderCheckr to calibrate both your monitor and cameras as well for consistent and accurate color throughout your entire workflow. Color calibration establishes a baseline for all of the color and edit work that you do in Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop. It keeps colors consistent so the reds in the print are the same reds you saw on your screen. The blue saturation is the same on the page as it was in your intention of the edit. We've talked a lot about the "photographers intention" in the last few videos and we are moving into color manipulation in the editing process with Adobe Lightroom and Capture One. Calibration is absolutely essential moving forward as if we don't calibrate, we are just guessing. We don't want to guess, we want to make deliberate and accurate work that matters.

Guess who I got for the ARTIST SERIES??!
I'm currently filming for Season 3 of the Artist Series. This past week I've been in Atlanta - you know where they film Queer Eye, Atlanta, Greenleaf, Flip or Flop Atlanta, etc… Well my little show is nowhere near as successful but hey - I'm in Season 3! This week I've been working with Bastiaan Woudt who is a brilliant, young photographer from Amsterdam. Bastiaan is currently in the US for his gallery debut of his recent project Mukono which is a beautiful project shot in Uganda to bring awareness and fresh water resources to the local people.

WORLD CUP lens of the future :: Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 GM Telephoto lens
Since we can't support the USA in the World Cup, the next best thing is clearly the brand new Sony FE 400mm f/2.8 G Master telephoto lens! Sony has officially stepped into the professional sports photography arena with its new zoom lens. Weighing over 2 lbs lighter than the Nikon 400mm f/2.8 E FL ED VR is 11.47 and the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L USM, the Sony 400mm GM also features a more balanced design, sharper image rendition and faster autofocus supporting the Sony A9's 20 frames per second shooting speed. This lens is extremely significant, not only being better than the competition optically and mechanically, but it also represents what Sony has been striving for with mirrorless cameras providing the best in class system for sports and wildlife photography. Sony contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I'd like to come to New Jersey to photograph soccer. I jumped at the opportunity to photograph the New York Red Bulls play FC Dallas. So the USA did not make it far in the World Cup, but this shows us what the possibilities that the future holds - not only for the World Cup but also for photography. While Sony did bring me to New Jersey to test this lens, this video is not sponsored and the opinions here are my own.

The WIDEST lens Hasselblad has produced to date :: Hasselblad 21mm f/4 review
The Hasselblad 21mm f/4 is the widest lens Hasselblad has produced to date. The closest focal range this would come close to would be the Fujifilm 23mm GFX. This lens has a full frame equivalent to about 17mm - it is wide. Its also extremely impressive in terms of performance. This is a difficult lens to design within the limitations of portability, price, and fitting in with the rest of the system. The engineers at Hasselblad have done a brilliant job with this lens. Its very much a technical lens with incredible distortion control and edge to edge sharpness. The 21mm f/4 is perfect for architectural photography - particularly interiors and tight spaces that can be challenging to photograph. The lens features 13 elements in 9 groups, 2 aspherical elements, an aperture range of f/4 to f/32, central lens shutter with up to 1/2000 sec flash sync, internal focusing with manual focus override and a front filter threading of 77mm. Hasselblad were kind enough to loan me one from the first production run for a week to test.

The Alternate Take :: Steve McCurry's Afghan Girl Revisited
In researching further about Steve McCurry's Afghan Girl, I found an interesting alternate take of the image as well as the story behind the photograph. When we're talking about the photographer's intention, this becomes a very broad discussion. We're talking about composition, color theory and the technical things that produce the finished photograph, but there's a broader space. These are all things we have to learn in photography but when it comes to getting the shot, we have to forget all about the rule of thirds, the rule of odds and all the other technical compositional tools and we go for realizing the intent. Steve McCurry had a very clear intent when he first saw the Afghan Girl. This was expressed consciously and subconsciously throughout the entire process and ended up being one of the most famous National Geographic covers in the history of the magazine. HIGHLY recommended book of Steve McCurry Portraits: https://amzn.to/2y9f8FJ Check out the interview with Steve here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BIgx-nkFL6c AOP T-Shirts! https://aop.threadless.com/ Music from Epidemic Sound: https://goo.gl/v5wWKr

Minimalist COLOR in your photographs
Lets talk again about photographing with intent. In this video I want to talk about what happens in front of your lens and how you can get really effective results by limiting your color palette. Steve McCurry's Afghan girl is an incredible example of this. Its not only a famous photograph but it has become iconic over the years. Everything in this composition supports the eyes including color. McCurry took this image on with a Nikon FM2, 105mm f/2.5 lens and used Kodachrome 64. While many contest that this is a definitive Kodachrome image, I actually argue that its the selection of colors that was important and keeping them reduced to essentially 3 - red, green and the skin-tone.

What is the photographers intention?
Intention is the point of all photography. How do you intend for your work to look? The intention of the photographer starts with the idea, concept and composition of the image and its carried all the way through to the final printed work. Photography today has changed in some ways because we tend to publish our work for screen-based devices, but the intention of the photographer - or your intent shouldn't be sacrificed. William Eggleston, Ernst Haas, Luigi Ghirri and Saul Leiter were all color photographers with different styles and different looks to their work. They represent the best photographers of their time. Yet they all shot on Kodachrome. So why does their work look vastly different from one another yet they were using the same film stock? The answer is in the intent. Each had a unique intention to how their work would look, what it would say and how it would communicate to the viewer. The answer is in the printing stage of photography. This is where decisions were made that created unique works.

Kando also offers classes, panel discussions and shooting opportunities around Monterey California. So in this first video - I'll give you a little vlog based around what we were doing there. The Monterey Bay Aquarium was probably my favorite activity - the place is beautiful and extremely photographic.

Studio camera setup - FOCUS STACK macro photography
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit Digital Transitions in New York City to do some photography in their studio. In this video, Doug Peterson shows us his method of focus stacking on the Phase One XF with the IQ3 Trichromatic back. You can do this with any camera. The challenge of macro photography is working with an extremely shallow depth of field. Phase One will do automatic calculations for the photos you want to stack but this can be done manually with any camera. The software we used for stitching the final image is called Zerene Stacker. It does have a 30 day trial if you want to try it out. https://zerenesystems.com/cms/stacker Art of Photography shirts: https://aop.threadless.com Music from Epidemic Sound: https://goo.gl/v5wWKr

Your camera is better than Ansel's
Every famous photograph was made with a camera less advanced than the one you are using now. This is a quote I read a few months ago that's stuck with me for quite some time. Ansel Adams didn't have gear as advanced as what we have now. Neither did Henri Cartier-Bresson or W Eugene Smith or Saul Leiter. Photographers tend to put equipment on a pedestal. We blame our shortcomings as photographers on the gear that we have. Sony, Nikon and Canon all market to us in that way - you need the latest and the greatest because your photography depends on it! The truth is that important work… work that matters - doesn't have anything to do with the technology we have access to. It has everything to do with what we have to say and communicate visually. Photography is an act of speaking. Art of Photography Shirts: https://aop.threadless.com/ Music from Epidemic Sound: https://goo.gl/v5wWKr

The ONE best use for Lightroom when traveling
Adobe Lightroom Mobile is great at letting you take better photos while traveling. One of my favorite tricks is to use Lightroom Mobile Sync to get all of my RAW files and edits back on to my desktop computer and into my image archive when I return to the studio. In this photo editing tutorial I'll show you how to edit photos in Lightroom Mobile on the go and how to seamlessly move transfer them through the cloud to Adobe Lightroom on my desktop computer. This is one of my favorite tips for how to edit travel photos while on the road.

LANDSCAPE Photography with the PHASE ONE IQ3 Trichromatic
Digital Transitions was kind enough to loan me a Phase One XF camera with the IQ3 Trichromatic back for my time in Arizona. Matt Beaty took me off roading through Arizona to get some epic landscape photos and test out the Phase One. The Phase One IQ3 is a 101 megapixel, medium format back. It uses a custom bayer filter design that separates Red, Green and Blue light in a new way that other digital cameras do no. In the RGB spectrum, there is always some degree of overlay. The Phase One design separates these a bit more than conventional cameras. The cost is about 1/3 an f-stop of light but the results are stunning.

Photography Portfolio REVIEWS :: Flagstaff AZ
First photography vlog from Arizona. I've been invited to come up and participate in a day long photography review session at Hidden Light LLC in Flagstaff. Amazing day filled with some wonderful photography and new friends. Participants arrived in sets of 4 throughout the day and each got 20 min with each reviewer. In all I got to critique 14 portfolios throughout the day and some really wonderful photographs. I was most impressed with photographers who worked in series projects, telling a story though multiple photos. Music from Epidemic Sound: https://goo.gl/v5wWKr

MAJOR Adobe Updates :: Adobe Color and Why It Matters
Adobe are launching some major updates for photography applications. I think these are the most significant updates they've put out in the last 10 years. They all hinge around the new camera RAW calibration profile known as Adobe Color. A camera RAW calibration profile is the first step in rendering a camera raw image before you begin to edit. Lets look at how this will improve not only your image quality, but also speeding up your workflow allowing you to get better results in Adobe Lightroom FAST!

Get started FAST in Capture One Pro
In this photography editing tutorial, we're going to look at one of my favorite editing software applications - Capture One. Capture One is an incredible application for editing RAW files. Compared to Adobe Lightroom it offers much more power and options however the user interface is quite different. Here are 5 tips to get you started working in Capture One Pro faster. If you're used to using Adobe Lightroom, Capture One can seem like a higher learning curve. The interface is quite different, but if you learn a few basic things it can get you going quickly with photography editing. In this video I'll cover sessions vs catalog, the customizable interface, working tools, adjustment layers and output options.

HELICOPTER Photoshoot :: Valley of Fire
For our final photo shoot with the Sony A7 III, we boarded helicopters and headed to Valley of Fire State Park in the Mojave Desert to see what the cameras could do in both aerial photography and landscape photography settings. While this footage was filmed last week, while I was editing this video yesterday - the news came across about the Helicopter crash in New York City. A similar photo expedition made an emergency landing in the East River which resulted in the deaths of all five passengers. My heart goes out to the families of the victims in this horrible tragedy.

The FUJIFILM X-E3 is INCREDIBLE
I recently bought the Fujifilm X-E3 after trying out both the Fujifilm X-T3 and the Fujifilm X-Pro2. While I really liked the two top end models, the X-E3 offered the same image quality in a smaller package. And its priced well under $1000. This month the rumored Fujifilm X-H1 will likely be announced as another top of the line so it should be interesting to see what it offers.

What you DON'T know about RAW image files :: Lightroom vs Capture One
One image, 2 editors… why are the resulting images different? I've compared the calibration algorithms in Adobe Lightroom and Capture One and the results are extremely interesting. To understand the resulting photos, you have to understand a few things about RAW format and how it is interpreted. Adobe Lightroom has been the market leading software for image editing for what seems like forever. But we are entering a time where we actually have choices and depending on your priorities as a photographer you can choose what image editor works best for the photography you make.

Medium Format Lenses and the Hasselblad X1D
The Hasselblad X1D is an interesting camera for Medium Format because of its size. The X1D is much smaller than the studio types of models most digital medium format cameras come in. So with a camera that's designed for portability, lenses are a concern because of the sensor size. How do you design a lens that is as compact and portable as the camera itself? Hasselblad currently offer 4 lenses - a 30mm f/3.5, 45mm f/3.5, 90mm f/3.2 and a 120mm macro. I had the opportunity to work with three of these lenses on the Hasselblad X1D over the last month and I'm excited to share the results with you.

$2,000 camera with 16 LENSES?!? Photography with the Light L16
This is my long awaited review of the Light L16. Announced 2 years ago it is finally out. The Light L16 combines 16 lenses in a mobile style body. Light say this is aimed to replace a traditional DSLR and a bag of lenses. The Light L16 uses computational imaging to get to the final image. When you make a photograph, it uses multiple lenses to compose the photo. Up to 10 images are combined and then stitched together in post production. On the widest angle setting this produces an 81 Megapixel image. So how does it work and what do the images look like? Music from Epidemic Sound: https://goo.gl/v5wWKr

Your topic for Photo Assignment #14 will be somewhat seasonably appropriate this time… we're talking about food photography. Photographing food is very similar to still life photography.

I took a photography history approach to the examples as we look at the work of Edward Weston, Wynn Bullock, Tom Baril, André Kertész, Josef Sudek, Irving Penn and of course - William Eggleston.

The Phase One XF is the most high-end camera system you can buy. I recently had a chance to use this setup with the IQ3 monochrome back. I was told this back is the first one in the US so I was pretty excited. This camera setup is a game changer. The Phase One IQ3 Monochrome back is one of the most exciting things to happen in camera design in the age of digital photography. The sensor weighs in at a cool 101 Megapixels and its designed to capture light past the visual spectrum. When you understand how to shape this using filters you have one of the most advanced, digital monochrome cameras ever made. The results are stunning.

SONY A7r III :: The A9 Mini Me?
Today Sony has announced the new Sony A7r III mirrorless camera - the latest in its A7 lineup. The A7rIII looks extremely promising. They seemed to have cleaned up a lot of the little frustrations with the A7rII, increased the performance and added some nice new features for both still and video shooting in 4k. The camera will be available at the end of November. Sony also introduced 2 lenses - the 24-105 f/4.0 OSS FE and a telephoto prime - a 400mm f/2.8 to be released in the summer of 2018. Also announced as I was about to film this video - DxO has purchased Nik Software from Google. This is incredible news as Nik is one of the best post production packages I've used. Google have announced they're abandoning development on Nik so its nice to see someone committed to keeping it up to date.

WHY I LOVE the Photography Community
Puerto Rico is currently in a disastrous state following the damage from this summer’s hurricane season. FEMA is currently responding but supplies are needed. Chelsea and Tony Northrup are working with Michael the Maven on a charity project to deliver simple water filtration systems to people in need. This is an incredible way to give back and one of the reasons I love the photography community so much. These filters are all FEMA approved, in fact, Chelsea and Michael navigated all the red government tape to make this happen. I am giving to the cause as well – I’ve donated a limited edition of 10 prints that you can get as well as 3 portfolio reviews for people who are interested. This is the time to put down the camera and come together as a community and I’m really proud of my colleagues who are behind this cause.

iPhone X :: Deeper Pixels
This week brought the unveiling of the new iPhone X as well as the iPhone 8 and 8 plus. This is also the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone. I want to talk about the iPhone in the context of photography. This smartphone literally changed everything. Now everyone not only has a camera on them at all times, but the ability to share things in the moment across the internet and reach an audience. This is the real significance of smartphones, but since its the biggest announcement of the year I figured it was an appropriate time to have this talk.

Up Your PHOTOGRAPHY COMPOSITION game with SUBFRAMING
Photo Assignments! This is number 11 and it deals with a photography composition technique called “Subframing”. Essentially subframing is using elements in your composition to frame up the subject – its like a picture in a picture. There are many ways to use this technique, you can be subtle or more obvious, but its an excellent way to create more depth in your photography composition.

Fujifilm X-Pro 2 :: Mirrorless Rangefinder Camera
The Fujifilm X-Pro 2 is a brilliant concept camera that combines mirrorless technology in a rangefinder camera design. The viewfinder is extremely impressive supporting three modes – you can use it as an optical viewfinder (with electronic overlay), a full featured electronic viewfinder or an optical rangefinder which gives you a focus preview for manual focus assistance. This is an extremely well though out camera that will appeal to those wanting the experience of shooting with a rangefinder combined with the amazing features and image quality that Fujifilm are known for.

Photo Assignment #10 - Positive and Negative Space
The next Photo Assignment is to explore possibilities of positive and negative space. Positive and negative space are compositional elements that describe what’s important in a photograph or visual composition and what is supportive. Positive space is usually the subject of your photography – its where you want to draw the eye of the viewer. The space this takes up in the composition is referred to as Positive Space. Negative Space refers to things like the background and supportive elements. Negative Space has a role beyond just staying out of the way. You can create interest by carefully using this negative space to support the subject in your photograph’s composition.

Polaroids In Brooklyn
Quick trip to New York City and I got to spend a day with my buddy Eric. We went to Brooklyn to hang out in Dumbo… and had some fun with Eric’s Polaroid SX70.

The Worlds Tiniest Drone
I’ve been using the DJI Spark for the last few weeks – DJI are calling this the Worlds Smallest Drone and it is tiny! It is considerably underpowered when you compare it to the DJI Mavic or the DJI Phantom 4 but the size and versatility make this a very worthwhile drone to have. Its easy to use and if you learn the quirks of the camera, you can get some incredible looking footage and still photos.

Landscape Photography

Photography On The Brink Of Extinction
There is one thing in photography that has declined to the brink of extinction in recent years – photography books. The economy has changed, they are expensive to print, photographers tend to live online now.

5 Reasons You Should Own A Nikon F4
Introduced in 1988, the Nikon F4 is one of the classics in the F series of 35mm SLR film cameras. It was the second flagship Nikon camera to incorporate autofocus (after the Nikon F3AF in 1983) and also added Matrix metering to the lineup. I bough mine in the early 2000’s and it was my main camera for several years. One of the best film cameras Nikon made and here are 5 reasons why you should own one.

The Role Of Color In Photography
Color plays a unique role in photography when its used effectively. In the early days of photography, images were rendered in monochrome. Today we have the unique advantage of unlimited possibilities with technology to do almost anything we can imagine, but the challenge of color still remains. Color is most effective when it plays an important roll in the image.

My Favorite Images From Photo Assignment #3
Photo Assignment #3 was a study in eye-level composition. Eye-level is a pretty open ended concept, but I felt it was worth doing since we were doing low and high angle photography and all three deal with essentially how you would photograph using depth. It was really amazing to see the range of interpretation of the photos people submitted. If you’d like to see all of the submissions – use the hashtag #photoassignments on Twitter and Instagram or visit the Facebook page. Poster image by Michael Mottlau

The Answer Is KAWS
Answering your photography questions… by far the most popular of them relate to getting your work into galleries or seen by museum curators. Lets talk about that. Leading a creative life means being creative in other areas as well. I think this is vital to photography or any of the arts for that matter. Photographers tend to chase careers that are decades behind us. The answer is KAWS. KAWS is the moniker of contemporary artist and designer Brian Donnelly who works out of Brooklyn. If a graffiti artist can have a career like this, what are the possibilities for photographers?

The first photograph ever is a heliograph made by Nicéphor Niépce in 1825 of a rooftop in France. Its an extremely early example and the oldest surviving object in the history of photography.

My Travel Camera Setup :: Manfrotto BeFree Live
I've recently started using the Manfrotto BeFree Live as part of my travel vlogging camera setup. I've used Manfrotto tripods for years but I've never had one that travelled well - until now. The BeFree Live folds down extremely well - you can fit it easily as a carry-on for airlines, but it still has the height and durability to use in standard photography applications.

Photography Assignments 1 :: Variations
The first in our series on photo assignments deals with the concept of variation in photography. Objective: it expand your capacity for creative thinking. Edward De Bono suggested that often we develop habits based on our minds ability to store equations to solve problems. If we want to do X – our brain selects a way we know how to do it. So how do we change this and force new “equations”? This is what we will discover in this assignment. Edward De Bono :: Lateral Thinking http://amzn.to/2fk1Dp6

In this video I have a special guest and we’ll be talking about the “skotographs” of Madge Donohoe (made between 1921 and 1939). Her vintage photographs of the occult personified the darker side of the roaring 20’s and paved the way for experimental “thought photographers” of the 1960’s. This video is sponsored by Squarespace.

The Challenge of Cheap Cameras
As we move into Photo Assignments I want to suggest getting creative with old cameras. Modern cameras offer most photographers more options than they will ever use. A GREAT photographer should be able to create GREAT images on any camera. This is where creative thinking comes into play. The limitations of dated equipment force you to change your approach. It often spawns creativity. The Amateur Photographer's Handbook :: http://amzn.to/2eaMrv2

Color Photography of Jacques-Henri Lartigue
Jacques Henri Lartigue is one of the great photographers of the 20th century – known for his whimsical, action based black and white work. Many people are not as familiar with his color photography. Beautiful and engaging, it is very different than the Lartigue we’re familiar with. Book: Lartigue, Life In Color – http://amzn.to/2d4yFej Lartigue’s color photography was done during 2 different periods. The first was his use of Autochrome plates from 1911-1926. Autochrome had a specific look used by photographers such as Heinrich Kuen. Lartigue went back to color a second time in the mid 1950’s with film as by this time he was shooting 35mm with his Leica’s and 120 format with his Rolleiflex. The work from this period is absolutely wonderful and rivals many of his contemporaries doing color work at the mid-century such as Saul Leiter.

Lartigue
Jacques Henri Lartigue was largely unknown as a photographer until the age of 70. Born in Courbevoie to a wealthy family, he took up photography about the age of 7. Some of his most famous photographs were made as a teenager. His subjects ranged from auto-racing to aviation. Lartigue's use of action in his photographs set him apart from many photographers of the time. After the family money started running out in the 1930's, Lartigue spent the next 30 years making a meager salary off of his paintings. He had a few photographs published in the 1950's, but it wasn't until the 1960's that his work was shown to John Szarkowski at MoMA in New York and he became known as one of the great photographers of the 20th Century. Lartigue was near 70 by the time this happened. Book shown in this video: Jacques Henri Lartigue http://amzn.to/289mCRy Also recommended: Lartigue: Life in Color http://amzn.to/289nfL4

Chrome In A Can :: My Sony RX1R II Review
I had the chance to try out the Sony RX1R II last week while I was in New York. This is a top-of-the-line camera from Sony which features a compact body paired with a 42 megapixel sensor and fixed 35mm f/2 lens. This is probably the best camera in terms of image quality that I have used to date. The highlight for me is the impressive 35mm lens which is way more versatile and has much better range than I expected it to have. Though its missing a few features for video, this is an extremely impressive camera from Sony. Now if I can just figure out a way to actually buy one… Get it from Amazon http://amzn.to/21b2Rbt Get it from B&H http://goo.gl/Kjc2KE This video is sponsored by AudiblePodcast.

Kodak Super 8 :: The Digital Analog Hybrid Camera
This week, Kodak announced the new Kodak Super 8 camera to be released in the Fall of 2016. This is a particularly interesting announcement considering the decline of Super 8 in film production over the years. But more importantly will be the process behind the camera. It has digital features such as a 3.5 inch display and outputs for compatibility with other equipment. But it captures on Super 8 cartridge film. When you purchase the film, you will be pre-paying the processing as well. Shoot the film, send it to Kodak and they will not only process, but scan the film for a digital download of your footage as well. http://kodak.com/ek/us/en/Consumer/Products/Super8/default.htm Twitter: http://twitter.com/tedforbes Instagram: http://instagram.com/tedforbes Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aop.podcast Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/tedforbes Website: http://theartofphotography.tv And get on our mailing list to stay up to date on photography news and the latest episodes: http://theartofphotography.tv/about/mailing-list/ Ted Forbes The Art of Photography 3100 Main St #135 Dallas, Texas 75226 Thanks for watching - if you like this video, remember to share it with your friends!

DJI Phantom Camera Settings
I recently did a video on the DJI Phantom 3 Professional quadcopter that I've been using. I've had several people since ask me about the camera settings that I am using on the Phantom 3. Aerial photography and video work is similar to landscape in that you have a very wide dynamic range that you have to deal with. Its difficult to capture in digital format. The Phantom 3 features a Sony Exmor sensor… having said that it is a decent camera, but not incredible. There are some settings that you can use in the DJI Go app that will help with your footage considerably. I will explain these in this video.

La Strada :: Italian Street Photography From The 1960s
La Strada is an outstanding catalogue of Italian street photographs from the 1960's. Works from the private collection of Keith de Lellis exhibit the new renaissance of post-WWII Italy. These works show the influence of the established street photography from photojournalists such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, W Eugene Smith and Robert Frank. These influences are projected on to an Italian landscape here and represent photography that is quite unique and beautiful.

I Might Have Bought A Drone
My review and tutorial on how to use the DJI Phantom 3 Professional quadcopter. DJI Phantom 3 Professional Amazon: http://amzn.to/1RSLy8q B&H: http://goo.gl/LRkg8V Remember to register your drone anytime after December 21 http://www.faa.gov/uas/registration/ The DJI Phantom 3 is amazing. Its an all in-one solution for photographers and videographers who want to shoot arial images. It combines a GPS/VPS powered quadcopter with a powered gimbal and camera system. The DJI Phantom 3 Professional shoots 4K on a 12MP Sony Exmor sensor. The Advanced version has a 12MP Panasonic sensor, but doesn’t offer 4K video or the ability to attach lens filters.

My Favorite Camera Ever Made
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQc5DTICvTM Probably my favorite camera ever made is the Holga. Its a cheap plastic camera that you can get for almost no money.

Black and White Injket Printing
One of the impressive things about the Epson P600 is its handling of black and white images. There are 4 different black links inside the printer. Three of these inks work in combination to print over a wider dynamic range than just using one ink. There are two different blacks that are selectable depending on the paper you are using (1 for photo-gloss and 1 for matte finish). Note that switching between the blacks will use up a little bit of ink, but Epson has minimized this considerably.

Henri Cartier-Bresson :: The Decisive Moment
Considering the release date of this video, I thought I'd cover a topic appropriate for the season - Photography and the Occult. There was an extreme period of occult photography that was produced from the 1870's to about the 1930's. Gimmicks and techniques were used into fooling people that the supernatural was somehow being photographed (quite consistently I might add). This period of history can typically be organized into 3 categories: Photography of Spirits, Photography of Fluids and Photography of Mediums. In this video we will have a look at the occult and how photography played a roll in the theater of the supernatural.

How To Say No
Saying now is very difficult in client relationships. Its very difficult and hard for anyone to do.

How Much Should I Charge For Photography?
I had 2 questions come in this week about how to charge for photography. One was for commercial work and the other for prints. These are two different things, but oddly enough the answer is pretty much the same for both.

Sony just released the new RX 100 Mark IV which is the latest offering in the series of compacts.

Lightroom Mobile
Lightroom Mobile is quickly becoming one of Adobe's strongest offerings. The Creative Cloud 2015 Updates have been some of the most important CC updates that Adobe has released and mobile is a key part of this. Adobe have been working hard at how we use mobile and the integration with the desktop apps is probably the best that I've seen period. In the past I've viewed mobile imaging interesting, but only suited for Instagram or other social media sharing. Lightroom Mobile has changed that for me.

High End Art: Everything You NEVER Wanted To Know
Richard Prince recently stirred up the photography/Instagram world when he controversially modified Instagram photographs as his latest work and sold them for upward of $90k a piece. Does this blow your mind? Possibly make you angry? Well get ready. In this video I’m going to give an overview of how the high-end art market works. The art market has become very attractive to investors in recent years for a variety of reasons. According to Bloomberg, this has snowballed into a global $54 Billion industry. Who are the artists? Who are the investors? How does this work? These are some of the questions I will try to answer in this video. The art market is rarely discussed in the media unless there is a lawsuit. I think that’s why its important to have this conversation. When it comes to huge money, very few of us understand how art as a business actually works.

Contrast In Print?
Contra.st is moving along! We got the website launched last week and so far we’ve got over 1,000 subscribers to the email list. By far, the biggest question has been – will Contra.st have a print version. The answer right now is a hard “maybe”. This last week I went ahead and made a demo issue using Blurb.com and I want to share that with you today. The quality is better than I thought, but still not up to the standard of other magazines out there such as Lenswork, Black And White, and the others. We’ll check it out in this video.

What About Fine Art?
As a followup to last week’s topic of making a career in commercial photography – this week I’ve been asked the obvious next question. What about fine art as a career for photography? This is a tough question to answer as its not unlike coming up with a strategy to be a rock star. Its near impossible if you don’t have the talent and the stomach to work for a long time. In this video I will explain.

Adobe Creative Cloud Updates (Photography Edition)
Adobe has released the all new Creative Cloud 2015 Updates! But what's in it for photographers? Well we'll have a look in this video. First off, you need to understand feature additions. Some of them are marketable, but not extremely useful. Others are really nice, but marketers don't find them worth noting. The Adobe CC 2015 updates have both. We'll dive in and look at the big ones. Some of them quite weird. Who knew that haze was such a problem in photography? Well now you can de-haze or re-haze until your heart's content.

So You Want To Be A Photographer?
And now for the big question. How do you find paid work as a photographer. This is the mother of all questions. Everyone who’s ever enjoyed taking pictures has probably asked this at some point. We all know that photography is a tough business. Its brutal. But its not impossible. My answer is likely not what you expect. We have to face a few harsh realities, but in the end I do want to offer some positive suggestions and I’ll do that in this video.

Canon 50mm f1.8 STM
http://theartofphotography.tv/dfip The Canon 50mm 1.8 STM is the newest addition to the Canon EF lineup. Its a motorized Autofocus lens that is extremely affordable. The body is made out of plastic. This certainly keeps the price down, but also makes it a very light weight lens - perfect if you're a photographer who doesn't want the extra heft often associated with lenses. Its not a perfect lens, but for the price point you do get decent image quality and performance. In this video review, I'll break it down and show you some sample shots. We'll talk about the imperfections of the lens and what its strong points are. Sponsor: AudiblePodcast.com - for a free audio book of your choice, visit http://audiblepodcast.com/aop

How Do I Get Work With No Experience?
I often get asked, “How do I get work without any experience?” Often people decide to work for free thinking that this will get them “in” with a client. While working for free will get you experience, its a terrible idea. Working for free is career suicide. The “client” will know you as the person who works for free. You cheapen your own work and you will be the “go to” photographer when the client doesn’t have the budget for the pro. So how do you gain experience to hopefully break into the business. In this video, I’ll tell you what you need to do.

The first will be slated to come out in this fall. I plan on featuring lesser known photographers – most likely in both interview and portfolio formats. This will likely dovetail in with the videos I produce as well depending on who I can get for interviews. There will also be tutorial sections and some type of inclusion of featured photographers from the show’s viewer base.

How to use the Sony RX100 Mk III Wifi Connection
In my recent review of the Sony RX100 Mk III, I skipped over the Wifi connectivity. Sony has been putting this into cameras for a while now and my early experiences with built in Wifi were frustrating to say the least so I stopped even trying to use it. However - I decided to give it another shot recently. Sony have come a long way with wifi transfer of images. Its not perfect (and won't be until mobile devices support RAW), but for a number of things its actually quite useful. To get this to work you will need to download the free Sony Play Memories app. Its available for both Apple and Android devices. This video explains how to connect the camera to your phone. This works smoothly on all my Sony cameras including the RX100 mark iii, the Sony a5100 and the Sony A7s. It works on other recent Sony models as well.

Richard Prince Smells Bad
Richard Prince created quite a stir with his recent exhibition. Prince created a series of images that consisted of Instagram screenshots. Comprised mostly female “selfies” in somewhat suggestive poses, the images have slight alterations to what look like comments. These were printed large and displayed at Gagosian and Frieze. Photographers have every right to be upset over this, but everyone seems to have ignored the bigger issue – the work is bad. Yes, Appropriation art is a thing. But why does Shepard Fairey get a pass on the Obama “Hope” Poster? What makes Jeff Koons different? Didn’t Duchamp already do this with the toilet? What was so great about Andy Warhol’s soup can prints? Prince is recycling easy, overdone concept art. And when people get upset, they’re playing right into the concept.

Stand Development Darkroom Guide
Stand Developing is a film developing process that involves placing film in a tank of highly diluted developer and letting it “stand” for long periods of time with little or no agitation. Traditionally, stand development was done with glycin based developers and the negative was laid flat in a developing tray. Over the years, other methods have emerged, adapting the technique to roll film types. This video is sponsored by Lynda.com - for a free 10 day trial of unlimited access, visit http://lynda.com/aop

Richard Pousette-Dart and Saul Leiter
Richard Pousette-Dart was an American artist who worked in different mediums including painting, sculpture and photography. He was part of the New York school of Abstract Expressionism the late 1940’s. Saul Leiter became close friends with Richard and his wife Evelyn and they became very close on a personal and artistic level. As Saul was initially a painter with an interest in photography, Pousette-Dart offered to lend Saul a Leica which he accepted. It was through the encouragement of Richard and W. Eugene Smith that Saul went on to develop his talents as a photographer.

Should I Get A Degree In Photography?
How important is a photography degree from a university? This question comes up quite frequently and is certainly controversial these days. The decision to pursue a college degree is very serious. Its a major life commitment, a time commitment and a serious financial commitment. You will have to decide what the right thing is for you. You need to think it through and do some soul searching to figure this out. But since you've asked, I will weigh in with my personal thoughts and advice.

Color Photographs From 1907 :: Autochrome and Pictorialism
Autochrome Lumière was one of the first commercially available color processes. There were earlier processes, but Autochrome was very refined and "realistic" for the technology at the time. Using grains made of potato starch, these grains produced a 3 color space of Orange, Green and Violet to reproduce color. In the early years, Pictorialists embraced Autochrome and were fascinated by its results. But quickly, pictorialists rejected it because of its mechanica, "pre-made"l process and lack of hand control over the chemicals and techniques involved. Autochrome was produced until the 1940's, but its early years were the most interesting and prolific among photographers in the art world.

Developing Film In One Step - Intant Processing
New55 has just released a chemical called R3 Monobath. It is just that, a 1 chemical process for developing film. I wanted to see for myself how well this worked so I ordered a few bottles and developed some film. Monobath developers have been around for a long time. The first evidence I could find was a 1967 thesis by William Quan for RIT in Rochester. In his paper he described a 1 bath process for use with Panotomic X film (no longer made). Instant films all use monobath for their chemicals which makes sense why New55 would be experimenting with this. Monobath is not the perfect developer, but its very good in the right situation. The pros: 1 bath process, easy to use, beautiful contrast, nice grain The cons: contains ammonia (fumes are strong), is designed for a specific film type, no control for pushing, pulling or manipulating the look of the process. My Monobath Sample Images: https://www.flickr.com/photos/tedforbes/sets/72157650008473213/ Buy R3 Monobath from New55: http://shop.new55.net/collections/frontpage/products/r3-monobath-developer Make your own R3 Monobath: http://new55project.blogspot.com/2010/01/donal-qualls-successful-monobath.html William Quan's thesis: http://scholarworks.rit.edu/theses/5194/

Tina Modotti
Tina Modotti was born Assunta Adelaide Luigia Modotti Mondini in 1896. At the age of 16, she moved from her native Italy to the United States with her father. Modotti soon developed an interest in performing arts and appeared in several plays, operas and silent movies while living in San Francisco. Five years later, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in film. Modotti became known for playing the femme fatale and in 1920 landed the staring role in The Tiger’s Coat. Tina showed an interest in photography from an early age. Her uncle Pietro Modotti ran a photography studio in Italy and later her father ran a similar studio in San Fransisco. After moving to Los Angeles with her boyfriend Robo Richey, Tina soon became friends with Edward Weston. Weston became a mentor and inspiration for Modotti’s development as a fine art photographer an by 1921 she was modeling for Weston and the two soon began an affair. Modotti’s boyfriend, Robo went to Mexico in December of 1921. Unaware of Tina’s affair with Weston, he took a portfolio of Weston’s work hoping to work out an exhibition in Mexico. While Tina was on her way to Mexico to join him, she found that he had died 2 days before her arrival of smallpox. The following year, Tina mounted a two week exhibition of Robo’s and Weston’s work at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Mexico City. Weston moved to Mexico the following year leaving behind his wife and 3 of 4 children. Tina set up and managed Edward’s studio in return for his mentoring her as a photographer. Weston was taken by Mexican culture and was inspired by local folk art and landscape. Modotti was more interested in people and the Modernest aesthetic. She soon found a community of cultural and political avant-gardists who she became closely associated with including Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. As her photography skills began to mature, Modotti’s work included lyrical images of peasants and workers and experiments with architectural interiors, flowers and urban landscapes. Mexican photographer Manuel Alvarez Bravo notes 2 distinctions in Modotti’s work being both “romantic” and “revolutionary”. The romantic aspects of her work undoubtedly influenced by Weston and the revolutionary from her growing interest in politics. In 1926, Weston signed a contract with writer Anita Brenner to photograph her book on Mexican folk art. Modotti and Weston were joined by Edward’s son Brett. The job was quite large requiring over 400 8×10 negatives and prints. Brett was brought up to speed at a breakneck pace and learned how to make prints while traveling through Mexico in search of lesser known native art. The project took months and by the end, Edward’s relationship with Tina was over. At the end of the project, Edward and Brett returned permanently to California. Modotti continued her works as a photographer and in 1929 did her first one-woman retrospective exhibition at the National Library which was advertised as the “First Revolutionary Photographic Exhibition In Mexico”. By this time, Tina had been a member of the Mexican Communist Party for several years and her work was very politically focused. In 1929, Modotti’s close friend Julio Antonia Mella was assassinated presumably by agents of the Cuban government. Soon there was an assassination attempt on Mexican President Pascual Ortiz Rubio and Modotti was questioned about both crimes. In 1930, she was expelled from Mexico as the result of an anti-communist and anti-imagrant press campaign. Modotti evaded police through Rotterdam, Berlin and Switzerland before making her way back to Italy to join the anti-fascist resistance before proceeding to Moscow in 1931. After this move to Russia no photographs survive and it is presumed that Moditti never photographed again. During the rise of the Spanish Civil War, Modotti left Moscow for Spain. Following the collapse of the Republican movement, she returned to Mexico under a false identity. Two years later, Modotti died under somewhat suspicious circumstances though the official autopsy indicated heart failure. She was 46. ine art photographer an by 1921 she was modeling for Weston and the two soon began an affair.

How Do I Develop My Own Style?
These days everyone seems to be a photographer. In a world of literally millions of photographs posted to social media every day, how can you develop your own style and stand out as a photographer. Well the good news is the answer is pretty simple. The bad news is that it takes a lot of work… well bad news depending on how you look at it. Developing your own style takes practice and dedication, but it also takes dedicating yourself to your own work and shutting out the online noise from time to time. Thanks to Karen for letting me share her question with everyone online.

Photography and Chemistry at Greenhill
Many of you will remember Frank Lopez from the piece I did on him a few months ago. In addition to being an extremely talented photographer, Frank heads up the photography program at Greenhill School in Dallas, TX. Frank has started a new class with his colleague Chad Bittenbender who teaches chemistry. Together they oversee a semester of experimental work from students. All projects start with an idea or concept and then begin a process of learning and experimentation with various chemical processes. The impressive part of all of this is that these are high school students. Most universities are not working this extensively with wet process as most have closed their darkrooms for the ease of digital work. Special thanks to Frank Lopez and Chad Bittenbender, Greenhill School and the enormously talented students there for allowing me to come film and talk about what they are working on.

Should I Work For Free?
Photography can be a funny business and there are times as photographers when we are asked to work for free. Sometimes this is formally called "pro bono" work, but its all the same. I got a question this week from a viewer who asks if its good to do for "exposure". I can tell you that in my 20 year career I've run across this offer of work for "exposure" more times than I'd have liked to. I've got some fairly strong opinions on this as well. You will have to make up your own mind as to what you want to do with your career but hopefully this video will give you a few pointers that might help.

Manual 35mm Lenses With Mirrorless Cameras
Mirrorless camera design has had a big impact on the way we take pictures. The original thing that attracted me to mirrorless was the idea of being able to get an adaptor and use lenses from my old 35mm lens collection with my camera. And it couldn’t be easier. Because there is no mirror in the design, mirrorless cameras use electronic viewfinders. Because you’re composing your image with a screen, there is more you can do with assisting technology imposed on the screen to make your life easier. Confusing? Yes. The first time I used a mirrorless camera I hated it. It felt like a gimmick with all the stuff on the screen. But after sticking with it and applying some of the techniques that I use to shoot video to still photography – it actually works. And if you set it up right its MUCH easier to use than a DSLR, particularly with manual focus lenses.

Tom Baril :: Polaroid Type 55 Works
Tom Baril was born in Connecticut, attended the School of Visual Arts in New York and spent over 15 years working as a printer for Robert Mapplethorpe. After his tenure with Mapplethorpe, Baril went out on his own becoming best known for his still life table shots of flowers and fruits across a range of mediums from collodion to Polaroid Type 55 to silver gelatin. In this video, I want to talk about his first, self-titled monograph which concentraits mainly on Baril's work with Polaroid Type 55. In this body of work, Baril shows a range of techniques including solarization and pinhole. His printing skills are exceptional as well. Most of these images display a beautiful sepia as the result of tea toning.

Nick Brandt
Nick Brandt is one of the more important photographers working in fine art today. His entire cause and mission is wrapped around stopping the rampant poaching problem in East Africa. Nick photographs animals as portraits. He doesn't use telephoto lenses as he prefers to photograph his subjects as one would people. This is a painstaking practice that involves extreme patience and dedication and this shows clearly in the work he produces. Brandt works in a hybrid film and digital process. He photographs using film on a Pentax 67 camera with modified lens (creating a soft focus, tilt-shift effect). The film is scanned and toned in the computer before the works are rendered as digital prints.

Saul Leiter :: Early Black and White
Saul Leiter was one of the greatest undiscovered photographers of the 20th century. Working in New York as a fashion photographer, Saul Leiter amassed an amazing collection of personal work that came to the attention of Howard Greenberg in the 2000's. Before Saul's death - the release of "Early Color" changed Saul's career finally bringing the attention and praise he long deserved. Last year Greenberg/Steidl released a 2 volume book set called "Early Black and White". Divided into 2 volumes (I. Interior and II. Exterior), the portfolio shows a much different side of Saul. The images are just as beautiful as the Early Color work, but they are made with a completely different approach. In some ways they could have been done by a completely different photographer, but there's a hallmark of the style that is obviously classic Saul Leiter. The impressive part is that Saul treated black and white vs color as 2 different mediums. Much like an artist who paints and sculpts, the respect for these 2 "mediums" speaks to Saul's passion and respect for photography as well as his extraordinary talent as an artist.

Is that a Sony RX100 in your pocket?
The Sony DSC-RX100 Mark III is the third iteration in the compact line from Sony. Its an amazing little camera that performs impressively well. I've been wanting a camera for a while that would give me the best tradeoff of portability and customization. I obviously do a lot of video as well as stills so versatility is important to me as well. I didn't think I was going to find something that would work - I was wrong. The Sony RX100 Mark III is a compact, point and shoot camera. It has a fixed Zeiss Vario-Sonnar (24-70mm equivalent), 20.1 MP sensor and uses the Sony BIONZ X Image processor and a popup OLED electronic viewfinder. It records HD video with Sony's new XAVC-S higher data-rate codec. Both video and stills look amazing. In this video I'll show you some sample images and video footage and show you how the RX100 iii performs in low light.

Kiev 88 :: Inexpensive Medium Format
The Kiev 88 has long been hailed as the most inexpensive way to get into a medium format modular camera system. You can get an entire system for a fraction of what you'd pay for a Hasselblad. But how is the quality? Is it worth it? Or is it easier to save a little more and upgrade to an actual Hasselblad rig? I've had mine for years. I've had 2 actually - the first one died on me. They are great, but you earn every shot you take. They are extremely finicky and awkward to use. I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about photography though when I first started shooting mine so I believe their value is in what you want out of a camera. If you're new to medium format or new to photography for that matter - you will learn a lot. And they are super cheap so its definitely an easy way to get into medium format. The Kiev 88 was produced in the Ukraine up until about 2009. There are third party companies that bought remaining inventory and modify them. Unfortunately this starts getting expensive so I still advocate the original model. The Kiev 88 is a copy of the Hasselblad 1000F. Originally known as the Salut - they later boasted a hot shoe and renamed the model the Kiev 80. A few more improvements lead to the classic Kiev 88 design. I've covered this camera on the show before, but not in a full deep dive review. Today we will finally do that!

The End of Rolleiflex
Rolleiflex has long since been an icon of amazingly built, high end cameras originally produced by Franke & Heidecke in Germany. The name Rolleiflex actually refers to the name of the Twin Lens Reflex line of cameras that debuted in 1929. Rolleiflex was long considered the top standard in build quality, optics and design. Sadly, the news came out on March 13, 2015 that the German auction service, Proventura will begin liquidating the Rolleiflex factory starting on April 20, 2015. You can see over 1,000 photographs on the companies auction listing page. In this video I will give some thoughts about what this means and about antique camera collecting and use in general. I know that many of you are film shooters and love old cameras. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this as well so feel free to comment.
