5 Reasons To Buy The Fujifilm XF10

5 Reasons To Buy The Fujifilm XF10

When DPReviewTV ranked the Fujifilm XF10 as the third worst camera of 2018 I was honestly shocked. This is a market that I knew Fujifilm wanted to overtake, as it’s currently being dominated by one camera, the Ricoh GR II. In my opinion this wasn’t a hard feat, the Ricoh GR II is outdated, it only offers 16.2 megapixels, which is considered low based on today’s standards and it only offers 4FPS, this may not be a big deal to some, but that’s quite slow for those who shoot in burst mode.

$500 Full Frame Lens!!! Is It Worth It? First Impression of the Rokinon 50 AF f/1.4

Rokinon is one of my favorite lens manufacturers. Their lenses have always been cheap, yet amazing optically. I thought it was a huge leap when they announced the AF version for the Sony E mount. It was so inexpensive that I had to give it a try, I figured even with a few minor mishaps it would be worth the value… Let’s see, is this a lens you guys should pick up as well.

How To Export Your Photographs From Lightroom

How To Export Your Photographs From Lightroom

A friend of mine reached out to me a few days ago. She wanted to know the proper way to export a photograph from Lightroom. I was a little shocked she was asking that question, since she’s an experienced photographer, but I walked her through it none-the-less.

One of the things I told her was to export the photograph at 60% quality, so it can take up less space on her hard drive, bu also because 100% might make your photograph look overly sharp. This was a tip I had heard from a YouTuber a few years back. I then told her to choose JPEG of course and explained to her how a TIFF could also be beneficial for future projects. She thanked me, we hung up the phone and then I forgot about the whole ordeal.

My First Time Shooting CineStill 800T

Yes folks, I have switched to the dark side. I’m officially made the switch to film photography! Okay, I’m just kidding, I haven’t 100% made the switch, but I did buy a few rolls of CineStill 800T and I invested about $15 into a point & shoot camera, the Olympus Stylus Zoom 140. I was turned on by a YouTube video that I saw BigHeadTaco post. His images were so cinematic and honestly, they just blew me away.

Camera Therapy: Street Photography After Dark

Camera Therapy: Street Photography After Dark

I used to photograph at night simply to get out of a funk… But now I’m starting to actually enjoy it. It’s a completely different scene out there. My typical photo process is to take close up images of subjects that I think are interesting. In that image I either capture them looking at me or I try to capture an expression that tells a story (angry, sad, happy). At night, I simply can’t do that. No one is going to let me come with in a few of inches o them, it’s just to sketchy, thus I have to tell stories from a far, which isn’t my area of expertise.
