Fstoppers Reviews: The Nero Trigger

Have you ever wondered how photographers capture bullets flying in mid air? Or get that perfect lightning strike in the middle of the day? Well the newly redesigned Nero Trigger will help you do just that. Short of the creative jolt you get when you upgrade from pop-up flash to a full off camera flash set up, I’d say that this is one of the biggest creative boosts I’ve gotten in a long time. This is a piece of gear worth having if you need to get the creative juices flowing again.

How To (And Not To) Shoot Underwater Pt.1 Natural Light

This year my family and I escaped the cold of NYC and went to South Florida to celebrate the holidays. I was so glad to be heading to some warm weather, and I planned some shoots that wouldn’t be typical of the winter weather up North.

Gear Review: Vello BG-N7 grip for Nikon

When major brands build product enhancements or special components, it’s only a matter of time before after-market options with much lower price tags become available. Generally speaking, off-brand products have about a 50/50 chance of being successful or disappointing.

Expand Your Skillset: Commercial Food Photography

Photography is an enormous, multifaceted industry that ranges from portrait and product to macro and landscape. As photographers, we owe it to ourselves to learn as much as we can about each specific genre of our trade. Even if you only shoot weddings or cars, it’s important to learn and practice new techniques, which will allow you to hone your skills and can keep you out of creative ruts. Recently, I have had the opportunity to take on several types of shoots that I either have never done before or have had very limited experience with. [more]

DxO Mark and the Compact Full-Frame Sony RX1

But I was less than impressed with its price, thinking there’s no way this can really be as great as a high-end DSLR. Put up against the D800, the RX1 does surprisingly well in DxoMark’s tests, however… [more]
