What’s New in Lightroom 11.4 (Big! June 2022 Update)

Adobe just packed a bunch of useful features in to the latest (June 2022) update to Lightroom (and Adobe Camera Raw). A couple of those updates...

Start to Finish – Forest Glow

This week we're going to do another start to finish Photo Makeover using a great forest scene with some water running through it. Also, you can find...

Sometimes It’s a Waiting Game

I think many of you already know this but sometimes photography (and bird photography especially) is a waiting game mixed in with some luck. I'm...
The Story Behind the Photo: Flåm Reflections in Norway

The Story Behind the Photo: Flåm Reflections in Norway

It's funny how things work out. On my recent trip to Norway, I stayed in a little town called Flåm. It was this picturesque town right along the water. You could walk through it in about 5-10 minutes. In fact, here's a photo of Flåm while I was looking back at it from...

My Induction Into The Photoshop Hall Of Fame

My Induction Into The Photoshop Hall Of Fame

Last week at Photoshop World I had the honor of being inducted in to the official Photoshop Hall of Fame. Rather than rewriting here, what was probably a way too long speech, I wanted to just cut to the chase and let all of you know what I'm most thankful for when it...

A Photographer’s Need To Be Different

A Photographer’s Need To Be Different

Picture this. You wake up at 4am... head out to Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park for the first time to catch a sunrise photo shoot. You've seen the beautiful photos of Mesa Arch so you know what type of photo to expect (there's many at 500px.com). You also know...

Should Your Web Portfolio Look Like Everyone Else’s?

Should Your Web Portfolio Look Like Everyone Else’s?

Last week on our weekly talk show, The Grid, Scott and I (along with our guest Colby Brown) did an entire show on website portfolio critiques. It was a little bit different from the photo critiques we usually do because we didn't talk about the photos, but rather the...

No Time To Get Organized in Lightroom? Then Don’t!

No Time To Get Organized in Lightroom? Then Don’t!

Hey everyone. I posted this over on my Lightroom blog today, but it's something that I really think can help some people out there so I decided to cross-post it here (not to mention that I've been really busy this week so it was a quick way to get both blogs taken...

Using Live View To Focus Your Camera

Using Live View To Focus Your Camera

I gotta tell ya. One year ago I barely used Live View to manually focus on my camera. Today, I can't live without it (Note: I'm mainly talking about photos taken while on a tripod). It's one of those things that's become so important when it comes to sharpness in my...

The Story Behind The Photo – Mt. Hood

The Story Behind The Photo – Mt. Hood

I got some great feedback from the photo I posted the other week with the Nikon 18-35mm lens, so I thought I'd talk a little about the story behind the photo. On my last trip out west, I knew I'd be near Portland, OR. I love that area so I'm always looking for places...

How A Polarizing Filter Saved My Landscape Photo

How A Polarizing Filter Saved My Landscape Photo

On my recent landscape photography trip to Washington state (here's my post and some photos) and the Palouse area, we made a stop along the side of the road to photograph some canola fields. If you've never seen these fields in person, it's amazing. They look like...

Nikon 18-35mm Lens – A New Landscape Photography Lens

Nikon 18-35mm Lens – A New Landscape Photography Lens

A while back I wrote about the Nikon 16-35mm lens being my favorite landscape lens. But recently I've had the chance to try out a new wide-angle lens and I think I've found a new contender as the top wide landscape photography lens - the (recently new) Nikon 18-35mm....

Does Never Really Mean Never?

Does Never Really Mean Never?

I'm totally writing this against my better judgement. Seriously, I know the whole Creative Cloud fury has died down and I must be dumb for even bringing this up. But I'm truly curious to see your thoughts and I'm hoping/trusting that you can keep it from turning into...
