DAZ QUICK TIPZ #1: Who Says On-Camera Flash Needs to Point Straight Ahead?

What a kick to be invited to be part of B&H's new B&H Insights blog. If you're reading this, you know that this is a great place to stop for the latest, greatest news about anything photo, video or sound related—tons of good information here. Since this is my first post for B&H Insights, let me give you just a bit of personal background.

3D-grees of Navigation

 The Space Pilot Pro 3D Mouse from 3Dconnexion is a professional three-dimensional controller, with its own LCD screen, for your computer. You can pan and zoom or rotate images and change the scrolling speed, among other navigational adjustments, even while you use the LCD screen to check your Outlook e-mail, calendar or tasks. The color LCD is called the Workflow Assistant and it also launches RSS feeds.

Samsung TL500

Samsung's TL500 digital camera is a 10-megapixel point and shoot with an f1.8–2.4 Schneider-Kreuznach (35mm-equivalent) 24-72mm lens—one of the fastest and one of the widest lenses available on a point-and-shoot camera. It is also RAW capable.

Shooting with the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5

For the past few weeks I have been shooting with the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 cameras with both of the available lenses for the system, the 16mm f/2.8 and the 18-55 kit zoom. I have to say that the first week with the cameras were a bit hit and miss.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W350

This is the Sony Cybershot W350. It features an extremely sensitive 14MP CCD sensor, an Optical Steady Shot stabilizer, immediate shutter response and a 4x Carl Zeiss zoom lens, which has a focal length of 26 to 105mm. This tiny camera also features 720 HD video.

Ears-on Review of the HP Envy Laptop with Dr. Dre's Beats Sound System

More than 84% of people between the ages of 18 to 24 listen to music on their computers, even though the sound quality they produce is hideous. An entire generation is missing the real impact of their tunes! To counter this disturbing trend, HP teamed up with Dr. Dre and Interscope Records co-founder Jimmy Iovine to design its Beats Sound System for Notebook computers, and audio quality was a top priority.

Shot Through the Heart

I'm the kind of girl who wears her heart on her sleeve. So much so, sometimes it gets me in trouble. My style of photography, I believe, encompasses who I am as a person and also as a photographer. It's almost a never-ending question—as in life—I'm extremely curious and inquisitive.

iCeland loves the iPhone

I’ve been intrigued by the iPhone photography of Dan Burkholder and others. I love the weathered look, and the apps are getting quite cogent, enabling us to create large files for print. Now, by large files, we’re not talking 20x30 inches, but we can certainly make up to 13x19-inch prints, that can have a fine art, abstract and saleable look.

Critiquing 101

The very best way to improve as a photographer does not involve any particular piece of gear or course of study, nor does it involve apprenticing yourself to a master photographer. Impoverishing yourself by working on nothing but photography as something of a photographic "monk" will not do it, either. While all of these things may improve your photography, the best way is much simpler, yet for many photographers it seems much harder.
