Star-stacking timelapses are amazing, and so are the thunderstorm timelapses. But when you have both in a single frame, it’s simply breathtaking. Maui-based photographer Joe Domrad has created a timelapse like this, and it’s a real treat for the eyes.

Portable external SSDs are still in their fairly early days, as far as adoption goes. But that isn’t stopping companies like Samsung from making them bigger and faster already. Samsung’s T3 and T5 SSDs have proven to be quite popular, but the new Samsung X5 SSD really takes it to the extreme offering transfer speeds of up to 2,800MB/sec.
Nothing beats the smell and feel of a heavy summer rain. Well, okay, maybe only the epic lightning that sometimes follows it. If you want to capture the photos of that nature’s light show, Hank Schyma has some pro tips to share with you. In this video, he’ll give you some tips and tricks how to make amazing photos and videos of lightning and make it as awe-inspiring in your work as it is in real life. Or maybe even more.
With more and more of us shooting 4K footage, fast, large storage is becoming a must-have for those of us editing this footage. For the last few years, I’ve been using the Promise Technology R2+. It’s a two-bay thunderbolt 2 RAID array with a cool feature that it has a third bay that you can swap out. I normally have a card reader in there as it allows me to copy footage from cards at the fastest speed.
External GPUs have become a big thing for MacBook and other laptop users lately. With limited internal graphics, an external GPU can speed up your workflow tremendously – although it does kind of defeat the portability of it being a laptop.
The recently announced Blackmagic eGPU, sold exclusively by Apple, might not be the best option, though, unless you’re only planning to use DaVinci Resolve. As this review from photoshopCAFE shows, it’s not so great with anything else.
The time to write down my personal list of the Best Apps for Landscape Photography has come. The group of my top 16 favorite apps which I use almost every time I have to plan a photography session, a photo trip, or a complex spot with a long hike in the mountain to get there.
What is one thing almost every photographer has on their person every time they shoot? A smartphone. Smartphones can act as fully-featured photography assistants that are capable of helping you capture the best possible shots with your dedicated camera. This post isn’t an in-depth review or a guide of every single app. I just wanted to make a list of the apps that I use the most for all sorts of situations, from editing photos to performing in-depth location scouting and calculations in the field.
It looks like the Apple “Butterfly” keyboard saga may have come to a conclusion. After being hit with two class-action lawsuits last month over the keyboards in MacBook models since 2015, a third one was brought about at the beginning of this month.
In response, Apple has now launched a new Keyboard Service Program to replace faulty keyboards in MacBook and MacBook Pro models.
It looks like more companies are coming to steal SanDisk’s thunder. Along with Integral, who in January announced their 512GB microSDXC card, PNY now joins the ranks by announcing a 512GB microSD of their own. The new PNY 512GB Elite microSDXC.
There are many reports out there claiming that PNY is the first to bring a 512GB microSD card to market, but they’re not. This one isn’t for sale yet, and Integral’s has been out for a while now.
I was surprised when Seagate reached out and asked me if I’d like to review some of their Ironwolf hard drives. I mean, how much is there really to write about hard drives? I’ve generally been pretty agnostic about which drives I use for my editing and backup. But once I started reading about the feature of these drives, I found there was a fair bit of info I hadn’t considered before. It’s worth remembering that storage is more and more important for us creative types.
While watching popular Netflix show Stranger Things, photographer Sean R. Heavey had an unpleasant surprise. He thought that a giant storm cloud in one of the scenes looked familiar, and then he realized – it was one of his photos. Apparently, the creators of the show used his photo to create the scene, and the photographer says they didn’t ask him for the permission.
