So I was sitting in the dining room in the lodge at Death Valley; across from me was a photographer I met while there. We were comparing notes about calendar sales. I was impressed with his and asked, “So how did you do it?" He replied, “It’s all in the marketing.” My head sunk into my hands as I looked down at my Cowboy Steak. Ughhh…there was that word again, “Marketing.” That's everybody’s mantra these days on how to succeed.

If you own an Olympus Pen E-P1, E-P2, or E-PL1 it's firmware update time! Easily accessed and downloadable form Olympus' website. According to Olympus, the new upgrade improves, among other iprovements, autofocus response times when shooting stills and video when using Micro FourThirds and FourThirds lenses.

Still photography just got a major upgrade. By downloading a free firmware upgrade from Sony, Nex-3 and Nex-5 owners who have been confined to capturing pictures in two dimensions (width and height) can add depth. Viewed on a big-screen 3D TV from Sony, Panasonic or Samsung, among other manufacturers, the third dimension can elicit jaw-dropping reactions from viewers. I should know. I just witnessed my first 3D slide show.

Airports, TSA, lines, cancellations, more lines, weather…today’s travel presents more hurdles to leap before we arrive at our destination. In the past couple of years, I’ve had the great fortune of avoiding almost all these hassles, having been invited as the “National Geographic Expert” aboard their “Around the World by Private Jet” Expeditions. (It’s a tough job, someone has to do it.)

A light-modification tool works in conjunction with different types of AC flashes. Many professional photographers put the bare tube flash head, or monolight without the reflector, in a lightbank. The quality of light is unparalleled. It mimics window light, so the appearance is extremely natural. Your goal as a still-life photographer is the creation of lighting which never crosses the viewer’s mind as being from an artificial source.

If you own a Canon or Nikon APS-C format compact DSLR and you're looking for a reasonably-priced, fast wide-to-short-telephoto lens to go along with your camera, you should take a look at the Sigma 17-50mm/f2.8 EX DC OS HSM zoom lens.

We're big fans of pocket cameras simply because, unlike bulkier DSLRs, they're more likely to be handy when you need them. With the exception of newer point-and-shoot digicams and bridge cameras with10x-, 15x-, and 20x-plus zoom lenses, most pocket cams come up short when it comes to satisfying wider angle and/or longer telephoto needs. If your digicam features a threaded lens mount or accessory ring,  Zeikos offers a selection of optical extenders that enables you to capture wider fields of view—including fisheye—as well as longer telephoto shots.

Tips and Solutions

I'm a lover of street photography. It's what inspired me to pick up a camera and shoot. It became fairly addictive. There is nothing like capturing or "stealing" a moment. So many special things happen day to day, which are just fragments in our lives. I find it interesting to watch people, observe and capture a brief snapshot of their lives.
