If you are out hiking and a beautiful woman asks you to take her picture, you should probably says yes!
Adam Marc Williams has a “how to” video (link below) at The Breed on using the new face recognition addition to Photoshop’s Liquify Tool.
Welcome to my Colorado fall color travel guide with 103 photos and 17 maps. I cover some of the best known fall color locations in Colorado, and one real gem of a road that is mostly unknown to photographers and leaf peepers. Spend anywhere from a weekend to two weeks exploring the beautiful Colorado Rockies at a gorgeous time of year.
So you want a longer lens and can’t decide which one to get. There are several good options and one of them might be better for you in particular. What about resolution? Do you want to be at 600mm most of the time or just some of the time? Does it matter if the zoom and focus rings turn in Canon’s direction or Nikon’s? What about size, weight, and cost?
I walked out the door after church Sunday and was greeted by perfect portrait light thanks to a big cloud over the sun. I love spontaneous shoots and I have been shooting this young woman since she was three years old (along with the rest of her family).
You order a set of lenses expecting to pay $29. Your credit card gets charged several times that amount and you get socked with an outrageous $85.00 shipping charge. You find out later you could buy the same lenses at Amazon for less than $10. You’ve been ripped off.
I spent a happy day yesterday working with Kristina, an actress/model from L.A. It was very much a last minute thing for both of us. We have been working together since 2012 when she was in college.
The National Geographic video story on the last roll of Kodachrome.
You can see large versions of many of these photos at the link below.
In 2009 Kodak announced they would discontinue Kodachrome slide film. It was a sad day for a lot of photographers and the end of an era. Pros and amateurs alike had a love affair with the Kodachrome that lasted 75 years. Photographers everywhere stocked up on the remaining rolls of film. One of the most famous images of all time, Steve McCurry’s Afghan Girl, was photographed on Kodachrome film. McCurry had exposed over 800,000 frames of Kodachrome in four decades, much of that for the National Geographic. At Steve’s request, Kodak gave him the last roll off the production line.

Some days are “so so”, some days are average, and some days are amazing. This is not the best time of year to photograph birds at the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, but July 14 was amazing. This photo of a feeding Snowy Egret was just one of many fine images from the morning. He stabbed at his prey and it came out of the water but not in his beak.
Located on the east side of San Francisco Bay near Fremont, California, the Don Edwards San Fransisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge is one of my favorite places to go when I am in the Bay Area.

Every once in a while a photographer is in the right place at the right time with the instincts and skills to pull off a great image. This photograph could become a classic. Photo editor’s are already calling Jonathan Bachman’s image “iconic”. It is a powerful image.

It is happening with increasing frequency and It has happened to a half dozen of my friends in just the last few weeks. The Facebook profile of a real person is faked and personal information is stolen from their friends. It works like this.
Bill Cunningham is one of my photographic heroes so it was a sad moment when I learned of his passing. My wife and I were driving across the U.S. early this week when she found an article on her iPhone that Bill Cunningham had died. I made a mental note to write a tribute to Bill when we got back home.
After reading a glowing review you order a set of smart phone lenses and you are billed over $100. You get socked with an additional $85 shipping charge (the ad said shipping was free). Then you find out you could have bought the same lenses for less than $10. To add insult to injury you discover the great review was from a fake review site and the quality of the lenses is disappointing. You’ve been ripped off.
These are screen captures from two different ads for two different companies. What are the odds that these are two different people that look exactly alike? What are the odds something suspicious is going on?
