How many times have you traveled somewhere and taken a beautiful picture without quite knowing where you were at that instant later? That’s where “geotagging” (or “geocoding”) enters the picture.

I love getting intimately close to my subjects with my digital SLRs, especially nature, and to achieve this goal I’ll use the best tools at my disposal. Understanding that a macro zoom may not bring me as close as I’d like, I’ll turn to a macro lens. But even this lens may not be practical or readily available in all situations. Sometimes we’d simply like to extend the...

You may have set out to buy the ultimate tripod, only to discover that you'll also have to buy a separate head to shoulder the burden of your cameras. Or you may want to upgrade to a head better suited to your style of photography. For example, I wouldn't use the same head in my studio that I use when traveling: I'd want something lighter, with faster setup when...

Attempting to make the HDR process more user-friendly, the newly updated HDR Expose and Photoshop-dedicated plug-in 32 Float, now both in Version 2, largely share the same features and enhancements. As I see it, the improvements center mainly on workflow—reason enough to upgrade, in my opinion, and reason enough to consider these as serious tools for HDR work. Both are available from Unified Color Technologies.

The goal in HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging is to recapture the full tonal range that you saw in the scene, despite dynamic range limitations of the camera sensor. Previously, HDR technique generally involved use of a tripod: now, while it is still advisable, it may become an option. It also required a static scene totally devoid of movement. Any movement resulted in misalignment and ghosting, or secondary images, caused by a shift in camera position or of moving objects from frame to frame.

The merge to HDR process has for too long been a mystery wrapped inside an enigma. That cloak of mystery is one giant step closer to being removed thanks to HDR Express, from Unified Color Technologies (www.unifiedcolor.com). While this software greatly simplifies the process, successful HDR merges don’t just happen when you click a button. There is some planning involved.

Hospitality photography focuses on hotels, resorts, and casinos but it’s not just about capturing luxury accommodations and lush exterior shots of surrounding vistas and scenery. It’s as much about highlighting comfort, relaxation, and fun. The pictures may include special dishes prepared by gourmet chefs, waiters serving tables, and guests enjoying the ambience and amenities. It’s a smorgasbord of images designed to appeal to a wide range of tastes, albeit presented with an air of sophistication to make any potential guest feel like a prince or princess upon arrival.

When I shot film, I carried a number of glass filters in my camera bag to every destination. And since I was shooting slide film, I needed the effect then and there—I didn’t depend on post-processing. Now that I’m shooting digital, one would think that I no longer needed glass filters. Well, that’s a misguided notion. There is always at least one filter in my camera bag: a...

CES is not a big imaging software show as evidenced by the short list of new products, though we did find a new camera profiling tool, updated monitor calibration tools, an old favorite Raw converter brought back to life under a new name, and software for editing on the fly and sharing photos.
