While the camera and lens were big upgrades, the SW150 filter system was a step backwards from the standard Lee system in a few areas. The large openings at the sides of the holder allow stray light to enter behind the filter holder, causing reflections between the back of the filter and the lens element. The problem becomes more evident as you add more filters. 9 Weird Photography Tricks That Actually Work!

Shalonda has shared some wonderful tips on how to photograph your own children with your “fancy” camera. From Chubby Cheek Photography: Having been in business for four crazy years, weekend after weekend of session after session, I have been burned out and back so many times. My normal everyday relationship with my camera was not a pretty one…dare I say it…yes I will…I began to hate my camera. when we were playing in the backyard I didn’t want to fiddle with it so I wouldn’t get it. when we went to the zoo, aquarium, museum I wouldn’t take it, it was too cumbersome, bulky, in the way, just too much to handle with a 2 year old and 4 year old.

Photo: AFP Reckon you can spot a YouTube video captured on a smartphone camera? It's not hard – they're often the ones that look like they're shot on "spin cycle". Many new, dedicated video cameras include optical image stabilisation (OIS) that takes out much of the shake from video clips. Even most budget models now include a digital version that can remove minor hand-shaking. Capture steady videos While Apple's iPhone 4S and 5 smartphones enjoy digital video stabilisation, it's more hit and miss on Android, with only the latest phones such as the Galaxy S4 having the feature built-in.
Advertisement Nokia's Lumia 920 and HTC's One, both with optical stabilisation, are arguably as good as it gets for smartphone video capture. For other iOS devices, the latest version of the free Luma Camera app adds a cinema stabilisation mode but needs good lighting conditions: results aren't as good in low-light or indoors.

Introduction This Guide explains and demonstrate the use of extreme neutral density filters, with particular focus (groan) on the Hoya 9-stop ND x400 Filter, the Lee “Big Stopper” 10-stop ND Filter, and the 10-stop B+W #110 ND Filter, with some discussion of neutral density filters in general. There has been a world-wide shortage of those particular filters as they’ve gained popularity with DSLR users, with Hoya, Lee and B+W being caught out by the sudden upsurge in demand.
I have included at the end of this Guide a Resource List, including a rough price guide. I want to be upfront and say I am not recommending one over the other of anything.

Editor's note: To understand balancing flash and ambient, you should have a good, basic understanding of f/stops and shutter speed.
That stuff can be found in lots of places (Google it) so I am not going to totally restate it here. __________ F/stop, Shutter Speed and Flash While f/stop and shutter speed both control exposure, for our purposes it is important to know how they do so differently. Since the light from your flash is pretty much instantaneous, it really does not care about the shutter—as long as you are at or below your camera's top "sync" speed. Note that there are fancy, flash-pulsing methods which will allow you to sync at higher shutter speeds such as 1/1000th of a second. Two Exposures Happen at the Same Time Every time you take a flash photo, you are making two exposures simultaneously.
The ambient exposure is controlled by the f/stop and the shutter speed. The photo up top is a good visualization of the fact that two images are being made at once. Okay then. 1. 2. 3.

If you are tired of posed, stiff and cheesy family portraits, then take a look at these incredibly creative pictures taken by Jason Lee.

Dear “Dear Photograph”, Thank you for your beautiful blog and for inspiring me to make my own ‘Dear Photograph’ book for my parents as a gift this Christmas.
In the process of taking over 400 pictures in the style of your blog, I visited the battered post-Hurricane Sandy New Jersey shoreline where I grew up. I visited preschools,bridges, churches, and grammar schools. I visited the homes and backyards of aunts, uncles, and grandparents. I started on the eastern shore of the state, visited the western border, and returned to the eastern shore again.
So Dear Photograph,Thank you for reminding us of who we were, who we are, and who we are going to be. Sincerely, Alyssa.
