Gear Overload: A Glimpse Inside Shanghai’s Legendary Photography Market

One of the many reasons I have enjoyed being an ex-pat in Asia is the abundance of markets you can find throughout the region.  Whether it’s the textile markets in India, or the fish markets of Japan, or the floating markets found in Southeast Asia, they make commerce fun, and visiting one is a great way to get a glimpse of the local culture, its people, and the items they cherish.

Mission Impossible: The Perils of Inaccurate GPS Data

Have you ever thought about the accuracy of GPS data? I actually didn’t, until I was commissioned to take a photo of a particular place before any work was done, and a photo from the same exact vantage point after the place has been renovated. Would that even be possible? I didn’t know, but I responded with my standard answer “Sure, no problem!”

Ever Wanted To Take Vertical Photos With Your Drone? Here’s The Work-Around!

Being a newcomer to drone photography, I was quite upset to know that my Mavic 2 Pro was not able to snap vertical photographs right off the bat. Luckily the workaround for the situation is a rather simple one, and one already known by most photographers — creating a vertical panorama.

I know that many drones, including mine, have built-in functions for shooting vertical panoramas.

Prime Members Get Unlimited Storage On Amazon Photos – A Cloud Backup Alternative to Google Photos

While it maybe wasn’t as great for backing up photos as it was for compressing them, Google Photos was a perfect platform to use as an easy-to-access online portfolio that was always in your pocket. I was using it extensively, not just for sharing the photos from photography trips with my friends, but also to send images to my clients for fast reviews before the final delivery.

3D Print Lightforge’s Camranger2 Arca Plate Adapter

I love when I see Dennis Radermacher’s name in my inbox because it means he has conjured up another brilliant 3D printed solution to one of the many small frustrations we photographers run into.

For those of us who have made it part of our workflow, I think we can all agree that the Camranger platform is incredible and powerful, but leaves something to be desired when it comes to —well—where to put it.

Get A Grip With Dennis Radermacher’s 3D Printed Canon TS-E Knobby

3D Printing is a beautiful thing. It gives those with the tools and the patience the superpowers to engineer a custom solution to design problems. That’s the case of New Zealand based architectural photographer Dennis Radermacher of Lightforge Photography.

Frustrated by the small shift knobs on the Canon TS-E lenses — especially when working in the heat or cold — plus the fact that Dennis couples his lenses with the Rogeti TS-E frame (making the knob access even more cumbersome) Dennis taught himself how to 3D print an ergonomic knob extension that is beefier and more accessible than Canon’s.
