2 Free Lightroom Presets Inspired By VSCO

2 Free Lightroom Presets Inspired By VSCO

Over the last few months I've been doing a lot of revamping to my website, if you're a long time viewer, you probably won't notice the changes, but for those of you who are new to the site... It's so much more intuitive.

One of the things I've been working on is my Shop, I told myself if I'm going to be selling products I need to make sure everything is 100% right... I found so many errors, but I'm happy to say everything is to my satisfaction.

If you ask me... that deserves a celebration. Below I'm giving away 2 free Lightroom Presets from my Good Vibes Vol. 2 Preset Pack. I hope you guys enjoy!

Raw Photo Challenge #38

Raw Photo Challenge #38

Welcome back to the Raw Photo Challenge! Its been probably a year since the last one? Crazy how fast time went by. Anyway, I've been getting back into photography heavy (sorry got bit by the Bitcoin bug) and one of the things I missed the most was the editing community we were building here!

It took me a long time to get this back up and running because I wanted to do it right, in the past I'd just post an image and post the winners, but this time around I want to spend more time giving you guys editing tips, sharing videos that relate to the group and maybe live editing some of the images with the photographers who provide them.

Everything You Should Know When Switching To A Full Frame Camera As A Street Photographer

Everything You Should Know When Switching To A Full Frame Camera As A Street Photographer

If you've been following the blog you'd know that I picked up a Fujifilm X-T20 mid-summer of 2017. I praised that camera even made a vlog about why I switched back to Fujifilm... Here we are less than a year later and I'm back chasing that full-frame dream. I pre-ordered the Sony a7 III and after a few weeks of using the camera, I absolutely love it! What I was most excited about was the price point, for $2000 you get a long of value and now Sony finally has a camera that will compete against the Canon 6D and whatever Nikon still produces.

This camera isn't just going to impact the full-frame market. It's safe to say that a lot of APS-C users and Micro Four-Third users may make the switch. The Sony A7 III is competitively priced with both the GH5 and the Fujifilm X-H1. When new users come into the market it's going to be hard pass up on an opportunity to own a full-frame camera, even if you don't need it.

With that being said I thought it would be smart to do a little write-up on what you should know when switching to a full-frame camera. Here are 5 quick tips to help you with that transition, especially if you plan to shoot street photography!

Camera Therapy: No Go Pro

Camera Therapy: No Go Pro

Getting a new camera is always exciting, deep down inside you know it won't really change how you shoot, but there's something about photographing with a new body that just lights a spark up under you. I think that's why I switch cameras so often, over the past few months I've gone from Fujifilm to iPhone X… and then back to Sony. I'll explain why in a later blog post, but for now, this is my current street photography setup.

Is 70mm Too Long For Street Photography? First Impression of the Bitplay Premium HD Telephoto Lens

Is 70mm Too Long For Street Photography? First Impression of the Bitplay Premium HD Telephoto Lens

It's hard for me to believe that it's been over 6 months since my last First Impressions write-up, what's even more ironic is that my last review was very similar to this one. Mobile photography is where a lot of my focus is going, I still love the experience of shooting with a DSLR or mirrorless camera, but my iPhone is always with me and it truly allows me to capture candid moments, no matter where I'm at. 

The one downfall about shooting with a mobile device is the fixed camera. I shoot with an iPhone X and that gives me a focal length of 28mm, now this is great, as most street photographers shoot between 28-35, but at times I want that extra range or maybe I want to go wider and that's where these little bitplay! lenses come in handy.

Traveling is my new favorite hobby! I'm not sure if it's the free cookies (I always get 2 bags) or the adrenaline rush I get when I almost miss my flight, but there's something about getting on a plane that just gets me hype. I say this every time I visit a new city, but if you're spending your money on gear and not putting a little to the side for travel, then you're living life wrong... Obviously this statement is subjective, but seriously, GO SOMEWHERE!
