I write this annual article to help photographers with one of the toughest parts of their job, pricing their work. In the 2016 version, I’m going to add some new elements such as a little advise for photography buyers (found after the state of the industry). Another section I’m most excited about is the question and answer portion at the end. Each year I receive many questions about photography rates in the comments. This year, I address some of the common and interesting follow up questions I have received over the past few years. The 2016 version is the best post on photography pricing so far and I hope you find it valuable.
Smartphone photography might seem straightforward. But the truth of the matter is there are plenty of people out there who could benefit from learning at least the basics involved in capturing quality images with a smartphone.
If you’re anything like me (and the rest of the internet) it’s safe to say you have hundreds, if not thousands of photos of your four-legged child, Fido. It’s not at all uncommon to take photos of your pet, either for the sake of sharing them with the world or archiving them so you can look back at your pooch in the future.
What is unusual is to see the roles switched. Rather than you taking a photo of your dog, your dog takes a photo of you and your family. But that’s exactly what’s happened in a little short called PhoDOGrapher. [Read more…]
According to Israeli company, Corephotonics, while mobile sensor resolution increases, the effective resolution and image quality of cameras in mobile devices remains relatively low.
Although the technology is improving with each new generation of smartphones that gets released, as well as other oddities, things like motion blur, lack of optical zoom, low light performance and focus issues still plague these devices.
These are the problems which Corephotonics has been looking to overcome, and they think they’ve found the answer with a twin lens configuration and some fancy software.
If you’ve been following the blog, you know that we are quite cheap when it comes to promoting deals. We just don’t. But this bundle from 5DaysDeal is just too good to pass on. The shot of it is that it packs over $1,900 worth of products into a $87 price. And this is good stuff not that crap you find on the last season rack in the back of the store. The bad news, the good prices will only last for 5 days, so you may want to jump on and get your bundle today.
Getting credentials to any Foruma 1 event is a notable achievement. Thus, when presented with the opportunity, it’s best to act in a professional manner and not get in the way of the teams and drivers when they’re going about their business.
During this week’s pre-season testing in Barcelona, it appears one photographer didn’t abide by the unwritten rules when he defiantly stood in front of the new W07 Formula 1 vehicle of Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton while his team was making tweaks in the pit.
As you can see in the clip, he almost paid the price by becoming an unwilling sponsor on the Mercedes team’s new livery, even after he was asked twice to move out of the way (he was actually asked three times, as can be seen in the full-length video below). [Read more…]
If you’re a photographer on the move, you’re probably in a constant state of battery anxiety. Many of us carry a couple of USB battery packs with us, but with the new generation of USB-C computers coming to market, it’s possible to charge all of your gadgets – including your laptop -on the go using Anker’s new PowerCore+ power banks.

Nest Cam got a lot of things right when they created their home security camera series. It shows such incredible promise as a powerful timelapse camera, but by screwing up the software, they shot themselves in the foot in what could have been the easiest-to-use high-quality timelapse camera out there.
Here’s how they got things wrong, and why the camera is useless to timelapse photographers.
