Nowadays most new digital cameras give you the option of selecting an aspect ratio other than that native to the camera’s sensor. Many readers will be aware that I’m a big fan of the square format. So when I bought my Fujifilm X-T1 camera I was looking forward to trying this feature out.

Mastering Lightroom: Book Five – The Other Modules completes the Mastering Lightroom series of ebooks. It is written for photographers who want to learn how to use Lightroom’s Map, Book, Slide show, Print and Web modules, building upon the earlier books in the series (where you learnt how to organise and process your Raw files).
A few weeks ago I purchased a Fujifilm X-T1 camera. I’ll explain why at the end of the article, but first I’d like to share my thoughts regarding the suitability of this camera for portrait photography.
In my ebook Understanding EOS I write about ways you can improve your photography without buying a new EOS camera. The unwritten premise of the ebook is that you can take better photos with the camera that you already have by learning how to take control of fuctions such as aperture, shutter speed, Picture Style and white balance. I also write about how composition and an understanding of light are just as important as technical mastery of your camera. Those things don’t change, no matter which camera you own.
Now that the EOS 7D Mark II has started shipping and more reviews of the camera are coming in I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some of the innovative technology in the camera.
My girlfriend and I have just returned from a two week road trip around New Zealand’s South Island. You’ll be seeing more photos from the trip over the next few weeks, but today I’d like to share some with you taken in a restaurant called Fleur’s Place in the seaside town of Moeraki.
Anyone familiar with Wellington will know that the high winds and variable weather are a frustration for landscape photographers. We had some beautiful calm days this week so I took advantage of the conditions to test out my new Fujifilm X-Pro 1 for long exposure photography.
If you’re a Canon EOS user and you process your Raw files in Digital Photo Professional (DPP) there’s a feature that shows you which autofocus points were locked onto the subject when you took the photo. Considering that Lightroom is a much more advanced Raw converter, you’d think that it would have the same feature. But it doesn’t! Until now…
