A Better Way Than Bracketing

Bracketing may be fine for static subjects, but if you are photographing things in flux, you’ve got one chance to get the right exposure.


Do You Own A Good Camera But Using It Badly?

If you own a camera that has a manual exposure mode option, but are using it in auto-exposure mode, you’re  not realizing the full potential of your camera or the full potential of you as a photographer.

It’s good to hear that [...]
