Creating the Look of Film Digitally – Replichrome Review

Creating the look of film digitally with Lightroom presets - Replichrome reviewThe Year was 1987 B.D.

That was the year I started my first little photography studio. 1985 B.D. Before Digital.

Those were the days of film. Those were also the days of shooting and tensely waiting, sometimes for several days, to find out if anything you shot was worth keeping. Which is why I gave up on wedding photography fairly early on. Entirely too much stress.

I started out shooting with a basic Nikon SLR with a single kit lens. As I became more financially flush, I moved on to a Bronica medium format camera and stepped up to bigger negatives.

Because I always wanted to be a commercial photographer,  I focused on finding films that would give me the fine-grained, higher contrast, punchy color I was looking for.

I continued to use those same films to photograph my portrait customers, as well as products, objects and architectural details.

I built a very successful photography studio on the backs of several different films stocks. Along the way, I learned a lot about different kinds of films.[…]

iPhone Photography – Shoot, Edit and Share

Sweet new iPhone Photography book by DPS.

“The best camera is the one that’s with you.” Chase Jarvis

Know what the two most commonly used cameras now being used on Flickr are?

The iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4.

That’s pretty impressive, considering a phone was a phone was a phone,  just a few short years ago.

That’s why Digital Photography School has just released a new book, iPhone Photography – How to Shoot, Edit and Share Great Photographs.

Bet you can’t guess what it’s all about….

Oh, that one was too easy. I won’t make you actually say it.

Before I go any further, let me share with you what I’ve learned in reading iPhone Photography.

Um. Everything. That’s right. Everything. I’m so serious.

I had NO idea I could do so much fantastic, SERIOUS photography with my iPhone camera.

Just take a look at the photo on the left. Took it from my car, while I was waiting in the bank parking lot.

Is the DSLR with interchangeable lenses obsolete?

Not just yet. But I can see the day not far off, when we’ll be able to leave it behind without so much as a backwards glance.

I never thought I would say this, but….I hardly ever take my big guns out of the holster anymore. At least not for my personal shooting.

Contents please.

iPhone Photography has a LOT of fantastic, practical information and phenomenal photos packed into its 106 pages.[…]

Travel Photography with Depth and Intensity

Great new travel photography book – Rabari – Encounters With the Nomadic Tribe

It would not surprise anyone who knows me well at all that I am a complete geography nerd. Many long years ago, when I was but a young thing, I was quite sure of what I wanted to be.

I envisioned myself, camera in hand, heading off into the wilds of….anywhere.

I could see myself traveling the globe, exploring little known places, meeting some of the world’s most exotic and obscure people and sending all that footage back to The National Geographic Magazine.

That’s not quite how things fell out, but that doesn’t mean I don’t still feel a certain leap in my chest when a copy of that august and venerable magazine lands in my hands.

Considering my serious, decades long, National Geographic addiction, imagine my delight upon receiving an advance copy of Rabari – Encounters With the Nomadic Tribe.
