An Inexpensive Solution to Geotagging Your Photos: Geotag Photos Pro App for iOS and Android

Geotagging, a relatively new word to the ever increasing lexicon of photographic terminology. It is a relatively simple term that means adding GPS co-ordinates to your images. In practice, it can sometimes be quite a complicated procedure involving bulky devices attached to your camera or manually adding photos to a map in Lightroom or Aperture. There is a better, cheaper option however, using an app. Today we will look at a recent addition to my iPhone, Geotag Photos Pro.

How To Be an Artist: Following Your Intuition

We love to believe that we are reasonable. We love the thought that we are rational, and that we weigh evidence, and make decisions. But from our brain’s perspective, that’s not really quite how it works. In the human mind, we feel first. The feeling is then interpreted into rational thought. Just like our eye receives light milliseconds before our brain knows what to call it, we feel before we think. In photography, it’s easy to spend a lot of time on the thinking part, and there’s nothing wrong with that. If we want to be amazing photographers, we’re going to have to put that time in eventually. But that doesn’t make us better artists, just perhaps more technically proficient ones.

Using Vintage Camera Lenses With Ease: 5 Simple Considerations

A while ago, I wrote an article on vintage lenses. I personally adore vintage lenses. But the reality is that they aren’t that easy to use. In fact, they aren’t easy to use at all. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t ease it up a notch. Vintage lenses are being used out of nostalgia and (mostly) due to the fact that they are cheap (well most of them). Added bonus is that some of them are really sharp and others produce unique effects.

4 Truths About Photography Every Serious Photographer Should Know

When starting out, photography looks like a fun thing to do. In the beginning, you have the mindset that after a little practice, you will be able to make excellent photos all the time. Well I’m sorry to be the one to ruin the fairy tale, but that is just not true. Yes, photography is fun, motivating, inspiring and fulfilling most of the time, but often can be frustrating. This is due to the fact that no matter how good you are, there are many things that are out of your control. For one, you can’t control the weather, nor you can do much about it if it goes bad. But this is just an example. Here are 4 things to watch out for.

Amateur Photographers Need to Stop Asking

Read this article and I completely agree. The average person who looks at a shot will not ask about settings, which means it is irrelevant to give feedback while knowing what settings they were using. Yes it is easier to give feedback on how to improve a shot when you know what settings someone was […]

Christmas Festival

In editing the original image (which can be seen in my album), I decided the colors were actually more of a distraction, so moved to trying this in sepia. It was my first time shooting in a nighttime situation like this, trying to balance low ambient light with the LEDs of the rides. Should have […]
