As year 6 draws to a close for this photography website it creates thoughts of what we’ve been through the past twelve months. And, what plans lay ahead for 2021. To say that 2020 was a challenge for all of us, is an understatement of epic proportions.
This article shares my favourite images for 2020 along with some commentary about individual photographs.
With all of the changes happening in the imaging world, it makes one ponder if entry level cameras will disappear over the next few years.
Sometimes it’s good to step back and remind ourselves of the miracles of digital photography, and the power this technology gives us to control the outcome of our work.
Since July 2015 when I sold all of my full frame camera gear, I’ve had people regularly ask me if I’ve had any regrets leaving full frame cameras behind. The quick answer is an unequivocal “no”. This lengthy article provides a detailed explanation.
Advancements in photographic technology are making it increasingly important for us to view our camera equipment as part of an integrated imaging system. We need to look well beyond simplistic assessments of cameras, based primarily on sensor size. It is true that the sensor inside a camera is an important component that contributes to its photographic capabilities, but technology brings so much more to the table for us to consider.
Camera and lens rumours abound on the internet. There are a number of websites that specifically focus on this type of content.
While it is true that a talented photographer can create great images with virtually any camera, it is also true that camera gear matters. There are so many great choices of camera equipment available today that we sometimes forget that there is no such thing as a perfect camera.
Over the past number of weeks I’ve had a quite a few solicitations for paid article placements. I have no idea if these approaches were from legitimate photographers, or were from scammers, as I ignored all of them.
A recent comment from one of our readers (thank you Lewsh!) caused me to ponder if our buying criteria for camera gear is changing, and if so, why. It wasn’t that many years ago that it was reasonably common for photographers (especially enthusiasts) to upgrade their camera bodies frequently. Perhaps not with each new model generation, but many folks would upgrade with every second successive model. That often worked out to a new camera body every 3 years or so depending on the brand.
