  • DPP Solutions: Radio Triggers

    On-camera flash will only go so far

    Modern on-camera flashes are extremely portable and powerful, and their ease of use and relative affordability make them an ideal solution for working in difficult settings.
  • Hi-Tech Studio: Doing Sound Right

    HD video DSLRs do a lot of things very well, but as a group, audio capability isn’t a strong point. Try using a separate recorder to get professional results

    New Tools Of The Trade

  • Misinformation: Camera Tech

    Size isn’t the only major feature of a memory card

    The megapixel wars used to be the driving force behind ever-expanding capacities, and while that battle has more or less evened out, memory card capacities are still increasing, thanks primarily to the newly incorporated video capabilities of DSLRs.
  • The Truth About HD DSLRS

    The latest pro DSLRs boast incredible photo and HD video capabilities. But are they really the best choice for both still and motion?

    It’s safe to say that since HD video entered the DSLR arena, no other feature has garnered as much attention from both photographers and videographers, or seen as much improvement in quality and control.

    Using models, stock imagery and digital manipulation, Thomas Herbrich’s work unfolds from his unlimited imagination

    A city is draped in red silk, with gentle waves of fabric spilling over high-rises and trees, and covering the streets.
  • Yu Tsai: Fearless

    From Taiwan to Indiana to California to shooting a campaign for GUESS, Yu Tsai’s clarity of vision and dynamic style put him on top of the fashion and beauty world

    Though born in Taiwan and based in the megalopolises of Los Angeles and New York, Yu Tsai’s roots are firmly planted in America’s heartland.

Technique

  • Air-To-Air

    Niche markets can be lucrative, and enterprising photographers can find opportunity and inspiration in the clouds

    Put several airplanes in the air, separated by only a wingspan, flying as fast as 150 knots and as low as 1,000 feet over unforgiving terrain, with roaring engines, a glaring sun and jarring wake turbulence—serenity probably isn’t what comes to mind.
  • Creative Sharpening, Part I

    When to sharpen in your workflow

    The vast majority of photographic images benefit from sharpening.
  • Get More From Smart Objects

    Eliminate the dreaded do-over when your client changes his or her mind by making good use of this Photoshop feature
