Tony Sweet finds Singh-Ray’s 10-Stop Mor-Slo filter delivers long-exposures without all the clean-up

In Equipment & Technique, Landscapes, ND Filters, Scenes & Scenarios by Tony SweetLeave a Comment

There is an obvious color cast — mostly strong magenta — that can sometimes be dramatic and nice, and at other times dramatic and problematic. Rather than taking time to color correct such images on the computer, which can be quite time consuming with less than acceptable results, I’ve opted more often to converting the image to black and white, which works to my satisfaction much of the time. But, what if color is the reason for making the image? …

Capturing this dreamy image of Allegheny State Park at first light with the Vari-N-Duo

In Equipment & Technique, Landscapes, ND Filters, Polarizing Filters, Scenes & Scenarios by Michael BielatLeave a Comment

I proposed to my wife there and we have been taking our children there every chance we get. Because I am very busy with my photo business, Allegheny Park is our place to wind down and enjoy life. Do I still bring my camera along? Absolutely! I make sure to pack light. My travel kit includes a Nikon D700 full-frame D-SLR, 24-70mm f/2.8 and my 70-200mm f/2.8 VR, tripod and my Singh-Ray filters. I use a couple of Graduated Neutral …

Fleeing the Canadian winter and discover all the warmth Cuba has to offer

In Equipment & Technique, Landscapes, Portraits, Scenes & Scenarios, UV Filters by Dale WilsonLeave a Comment

We booked a one-week foray to Cuba in search of palm trees, turquoise waters, great music and an endless stream of piña coladas. This was to be a family holiday, and I’m sure I am not the only photographer who has discovered they cannot diligently shoot while on vacation. As a compromise between my own impulses as a photographer and my respect for the notion that this would be a family holiday, I decided to take just one small carry-on …

Recalling the origins of the Galen Rowell Graduated ND Filters

In Equipment & Technique, Landscapes, ND Filters, Scenes & Scenarios by Dewitt JonesLeave a Comment

In those bygone days, BD (Before Digital), one of the biggest frustrations for landscape photographers was the limited latitude of color slide film. A four to five-stop dynamic range was all that our film could handle before the shadows blocked up or the highlights burned out. This presented a real problem especially when we were faced with a beautiful (but dark) foreground and a glorious (but very bright) background sky. At best, we would have to wait for just the …

I will admit I was

In by Richard BonineLeave a Comment

I will admit I was skeptical about your filters and whether they could make that much difference. But, life is short so I thought I would try them. I have an expensive 150mm filter system from another company that I honestly quit using because of the hassle. I bought the Randall J Hodges kit of Galen Rowell hard GND’s. Holy crap! I am impressed. This system is so easy to use. These are some of the best photos I’ve ever …

Playing on the Beach with Singh-Ray Filters

In Equipment & Technique, Polarizing Filters by Randall J. Hodges1 Comment

Winter is my favorite time to photograph the beautiful beaches of the West Coast. Recently I was able to get out for a two-night adventure to Second Beach in Olympic National Park in Washington. Second Beach is one of my favorite beaches in the world, and I was incredibly excited to hike on it again. I was there to film a new episode of my video series “Out in the Filed with Randall J Hodges”. I was hoping for great …

Patience Rewarded

In ND Filters, Post-Processing by George Wilson2 Comments

Patience is a virtue – or so I was told growing up. So, what is the obsession with rushing through our photography– just to upload it to Instagram, Facebook, Flickr in hopes of getting lots of “likes” and favorites”? Will they really matter 100 years from now? What portion of our work will still exist when we pass on? Harsh to think about, yes, but it is reality. What do you wish to be remembered for at the end of …
