It is the year 2018, hard drives are becoming less and less common in most work focused computers as significantly faster SSD storage has come down in price.

App Review: LightLeaker (Apple iOS, Apple iPhone 6s)

Very few apps really make me want to review them, but in the case of LightLeaker I'm more than eager to do so. LightLeaker joins the list with LensDistortions and RNI Films as some of my favorite apps for iOS that appeal to the photographer that wants much more than what the current suite of editing platforms offer simply because of their emphasis on creating a clinically perfect photo. thephoblographer.com

Simpler Than You Think: The Secret To Metering a Portrait Photo With a Flash

Sooooooooo many photographers are completely and totally scared of using a flash, but in all truthfulness it's probably sometimes easier than metering for natural light. Because a camera has options like aperture priority for a photographer to tell the camera only what depth of field a photographer wants, lots of photographers tend to opt for this setting more than anything else. thephoblographer.com

I Gave Instant Photos To More Than 60 Tanzanians Who Dont Have Them And Captured Their Smiles

My name is Julia and I'm a Belarusian amateur photographer currently living in Prague. There is a Swahili expression "Watu sio milima" which means "People are not mountains". Every time when I prove that I'm not a mountain and travel from one place to another I see this world from a new perspective and become a bit better. boredpanda.com

Apple selling more Plus models than ever

Apple's financial results, which will be released tomorrow, show that in Q4 2016 Apple has sold more iPhone 7 Plus units than any of the preceding Plus models in previous years. The Plus model has a larger screen, more RAM and a bigger battery than its standard counterpart but we'd suspect the iPhone 7 Plus dual-camera with its 2x optical zoom factor and portrait mode has a lot to do with consumers increasingly opting for the more expensive iPhone variant. dpreview.com

Everyone is Making a Good Camera, but No One is Making an Exceptional One

In case you've been hiding under a rock, there isn't a single camera out there that isn't good. They're all good. They're all great. They all have loads more megapixels than you need, they all have more than good enough high ISO output for images going on the web, they all have pretty darned good autofocus capabilities, they all have just overall fantastic features. thephoblographer.com

The Black and White JPEGs From Modern Cameras Are More Than Good Enough For Most People. There; I Said It.

For most photographers out there, we can't just sit back and accept that we got a JPEG from a camera that can easily and obviously be improved with some editing in RAW. It's a fundamental pillar of photography and always has been since the earliest days that you can go into the darkroom and get more from an image than what you shot. thephoblographer.com
