The final 100 present a unique and highly personal record of this extraordinary period in our history. From virtual birthday parties, handmade rainbows and community clapping to brave NHS staff, resilient keyworkers and people dealing with illness, isolation and loss. The images convey humour and grief, creativity and kindness, tragedy and hope - expressing and exploring both our shared and individual experiences.</p> <p>A selection of the photographs featured in the digital exhibition will also be shown in towns and cities across the UK later in the year.</p> <p>International law firm Taylor Wessing are supporting the Hold Still project in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery.

We've continued to bake as a family and my children have enjoyed learning how to knead dough and the process of proving before baking.

I took this photo to have as a reminder of how far I’d been capable of pushing myself when I needed to. I sent it to my family to tell them what a hard day it had been and they were all so shocked by it.

I had been trolling the waters of low-end Minoltas and was just about to make an offer on a Maxxum 3xi and a zoom lens, when I saw… <em>the camera</em>.</p> <h2><strong>Too good to be true? </strong></h2> <p>It was a Minolta Maxxum 5, a camera that, quite frankly, I had never heard of. It came with what I assume was its kit lens, a Minolta AF 28-80 F3.5-5.6 painted in matching silver. The lens hood was present but the lens cap was missing. The seller was here in the Los Angeles area, so shipping was only six dollars. <br><br> Asking price: $12 <em>or best offer</em>.</p> <p>The description didn’t indicate if it was working, just the standard Ebay 'Used' boilerplate, which does include the phrase '…is fully operational and functions as intended.' I figured that was my out if the camera turned out to be broken.</p> <p>The asking and shipping price were already within my $20 budget, but I am the son of a used car salesman, so I had to try to do a little better. I sent the seller a $10 offer, and it was accepted!</p> <h2><strong>A high-feature camera for a super low price</strong></h2> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="images noCaptions noCrop singleNoBorder center" data-image-height="null" data-image-width="590"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="image" style="width: 590px;"><a href="https://www.dpreview.com/files/p/articles/4679579785/Minolta-Maxxum-5-b.jpeg" target="article-4679579785"><img border="0" data-thumbnail-height="0" data-thumbnail-width="590" height="393" src="https://1.img-dpreview.com/files/p/E~TS590x0~articles/4679579785/Minolta-Maxxum-5-b.jpeg" width="590" data-filename="Minolta-Maxxum-5-b.jpeg"></a></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>While waiting for my new cheap camera to arrive, I fired up Google to figure out exactly what I'd just bought. I learned that the Minolta Maxxum 5 came out in late 2001 (well after I'd tuned out the 35mm SLR market, which explains why I'd never heard of it). The Maxxum 5 was part of that market's last gasp. It sat in the middle of Minolta’s lineup, but the features sure made it look like a high-end camera to me. It was as if Minolta was shoveling every feature they could into their 35mm SLRs as film was on its way out the door. Retail price for the body was $403, which is $587 in today’s dollars. I wasn’t able to find any contemporary ads, but I imagine at the time, you could get it with the 28-80mm for just a bit more dough.</p> <blockquote class="pullQuote">The Maxxum 5 was part of the 35mm SLR market's last gasp. It sat in the middle of Minolta’s lineup, but the features sure made it look like high-end</blockquote> <p>I’ll spare you a laundry list of the Maxxum 5’s features, because it’ll waste too many words and no one will care, but the highlights include 14-segment exposure metering, off-the-film flash metering, 7-point switchable autofocus, and a shutter speed range of 30 sec to 1/4000 sec. It has a depth-of-field preview (yay!), 3-exposure auto-bracketing, and – especially important to me – automatic and manual ISO settings. (I bulk-roll my film, so if the camera has no DX override, I’m stuck.) And the film advances at the lighting-fast rate of three frames per second.</p> <p>I stopped paying attention to the 35mm SLR market in the late 90s (after all, how could I need anything better than my Canon EOS Rebel 2000?), and frankly I was amazed at the Maxxum 5’s features and configuration options. Cripes, I thought to myself as I skimmed the <a href="https://www.cameramanuals.org/minolta_pdf/minolta_maxxum_5.pdf" rel="noopener" target="_blank">127-page manual</a>, <em>who needs a Nikon F100 when you can get one of these</em>?</p> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="images noCrop singleNoBorder center" data-image-height="null" data-image-width="590"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="image" style="width: 590px;"><a href="https://www.dpreview.com/files/p/articles/4679579785/0053_023_edit_sm.jpeg" target="article-4679579785"><img border="0" data-thumbnail-height="0" data-thumbnail-width="590" height="377" src="https://1.img-dpreview.com/files/p/E~TS590x0~articles/4679579785/0053_023_edit_sm.jpeg" width="590" data-filename="0053_023_edit_sm.jpeg"></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="caption" style="width: 590px;">A sample from the Maxxum 5, shot on Ilford HP5+.</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <h2><strong>The realities of my sub-$20 camera </strong></h2> <p>Two days later, my camera showed up, and it looked brand new. The lens cap was missing, but there was a UV filter installed, and the glass underneath was spotless. It still had batteries and they had just enough juice to turn on the camera on and fire the shutter. Everything seemed to work – but would it take decent pictures?</p> <p>I loaded up a new pair of CR2 batteries and some film. I started with a roll of deep-discount Ultrafine Xtreme 100, then splurged on a roll of Kodak Ektar, and followed up with my old favorite, Ilford HP5+. It’s worth noting that these three rolls of film together cost more than I paid for the camera.</p> <blockquote class="pullQuote">It’s worth noting that three rolls of film together cost more than I paid for the camera</blockquote> <p>Shooting with the Maxxum 5 is good fun. The body and lens barrel are made of plastic, as were many SLRs of the era, and the upside is a light weight. With a strap, cap, and no film, it weighs 612g (21.6 oz), a little heavier than my Sony a6000 and quite a bit lighter than my Pentax ME Super. The autofocus is quick and accurate and there's minimal shutter lag. Aside from the clicks and whirrs of the autofocus and winding motors, the experience wasn’t entirely unlike shooting with my a6000 – no surprise, I suppose, since the Minolta is, technically, the Sony’s not-too-distant ancestor.</p> <h2><strong>But were the photos any good?</strong></h2> <div id="embeddedSampleGallery_9270722206" class="sampleGalleryImageViewerContainer" style="height: 521px"></div><script type="text/javascript">$(document).ready(function() { SampleGalleryV2({"containerId":"embeddedSampleGallery_9270722206","galleryId":"9270722206","isEmbeddedWidget":true,"selectedImageIndex":0,"isMobile":false}) });</script> <p>When I developed my B&amp;W and picked up the color film from the lab, I was rather pleased with the results. I shot primarily in aperture-priority or program mode, and the Minolta’s built-in meter nailed the exposure on pretty much every shot. As for image quality, well, it’s what you would expect from a kit lens: reasonably sharp, but I’ve seen better. Actually, I’ve seen better from other Minolta AF lenses, which are ridiculously cheap – you can get some damn fine Minolta lenses in the $10 to $40 price range. (I was tempted to fit them to my new Maxxum 5, but that would go against the spirit of the challenge.)</p> <blockquote class="pullQuote">The more I shot with the Maxxum 5, and the deeper I delved into its features, the more I realized that it is, by far, the most comprehensive, feature-rich film camera I own</blockquote> <p>The more I shot with the Maxxum 5, and the deeper I delved into its features, the more I realized that it is, by far, the most comprehensive, feature-rich film camera I own. Not bad for something that cost me sixteen bucks!</p> <h2><strong>Yes, you can get a great camera for $20 – or less </strong></h2> <p>I set out on this little experiment to see if it was possible to find a decent camera for less than $20. I was pretty sure the answer would be yes, but I never expected to find such an advanced camera in such good shape. Did I just get lucky? At $16, maybe a little. But it only took me a few days of shopping to unearth this gem, and as I speak there are a bunch more Maxxum 5s on eBayfor $30 or less. And I have no doubt there are even better bargains to be found.</p> <p>Who’s going to take the $20 Film Camera Challenge next?</p> Breakthrough announces first third-party EF to RF Drop-In Filter Adapter https://www.dpreview.com/news/4040877378/breakthrough-announces-first-third-party-ef-to-rf-drop-in-filter-adapter News: Digital Photography Review (dpreview.com) urn:uuid:c5459839-8e57-6927-26ec-21cceb9d3299 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 12:43:00 +0000 <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="images noCaptions noCrop singleNoBorder center" data-image-height="null" data-image-width="590"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="image" style="width: 590px;"><a href="https://www.dpreview.com/files/p/articles/4040877378/Breakthrough_Drop_In_I.jpeg" target="article-4040877378"><img border="0" data-thumbnail-height="0" data-thumbnail-width="590" height="393" src="https://2.img-dpreview.com/files/p/E~TS590x0~articles/4040877378/Breakthrough_Drop_In_I.jpeg" width="590" data-filename="Breakthrough_Drop_In_I.jpeg"></a></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>San Francisco-based <a href="https://breakthrough.photography" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Breakthrough Filters</a> has announced an all-new EF to RF filter adapter.

That often means finding a bizarre angle, a lower vantage point, or simply getting closer. But all in all, every photograph is about telling a story, and to do so, you need a connection.</p> <h4>1. Get to know your camera.</h4> <p>Cameras come with instruction manuals for a reason. Use them. Quite often, these little books packed full of information explain the reason for your terrible shots. I teach beginners the ins and outs of not being scared of your camera&#8217;s settings and features. I always tell students that the more they know about their camera, the quicker they can respond, especially when on holiday, enjoying something like whale watching. Not getting to know all the features of your camera and how to adjust or access them with practice will always ensure you get the after splash and not the tail fin of the whale.</p> <div id="attachment_72848" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/volvob12b/8066499696/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-72848" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-72848 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/tips-to-improve-photos.jpg" alt="best photography tips" width="570" height="371" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-72848" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/volvob12b/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Bernard Spragg. NZ</a>; ISO 200, f/7.1, 1/500-second exposure.</p></div> <h4>2. Use every setting you can find.</h4> <p>The features built into some cameras nowadays are astounding. One example is extreme ISO speed. You can set the sensitivity of your camera to see light that essentially can&#8217;t be seen. The ISO speed in a digital camera is no different to the film speeds we used to use many years ago. Remember from your local supermarket or department store you could buy Kodak 100, 200, or 400 speed film.</p> <p>Well digital doesn&#8217;t use film. Cameras now come with an ISO speed setting built into them, where you can adjust the sensitivity to suit your needs. This is especially good for parties. Here&#8217;s my tip, free to you. Turn off the flash at a party and push your ISO button and move it from the standard of 100 or 200 up to 1600 or 3200 or higher and see what you get. I bet you&#8217;ll be surprised that without the flash you can actually see all the colours of the party, making for a much more interesting shot. Try it, along with all the other buttons and settings, and experiment.</p> <div id="attachment_72850" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/douxiebentulan/8627563049/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-72850" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-72850 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/photo-tips-to-improve-technique.jpg" alt="photo tips for beginners" width="570" height="428" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-72850" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/douxiebentulan/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Denise Bentulan</a>; ISO 1600, f/4.5, 1/30-second exposure.</p></div> <h4>3. Look at what makes a good photograph&#8230;and remember it.</h4> <p>I am always looking at the work of other professionals. This gives me the ability to assess my own work against industry standards and what trends are being sought by clients. Amateurs can do exactly the same, especially if they are planning on taking their photography to a professional standard. In a previous article on photographic awards and competitions, I wrote about two organizations: the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) and the PPA (Professional Photographers of America). Both these organizations have a history of past winners on their website. Take the time to see what&#8217;s the best in the world, and take note of their way of doing things.</p> <div id="attachment_39378" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/bchydro/5142970223/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-39378" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-39378 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/camera-controls-6.jpg" alt="award-winning photography" width="570" height="390" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-39378" class="wp-caption-text">&#8220;2010 Team Power Smart photo contest grand prize winner,&#8221; captured by Bethany Brouwer</p></div> <p>I&#8217;m not saying copy them, but take note of the fact that aspects of their images don&#8217;t have a tree branch poking out of a persons ear in the background, they don&#8217;t cut off the tops of peoples&#8217; heads, they don&#8217;t have a crooked horizon, etc. I think you get the drift.</p> <h4>4. Become friends with your F-stops.</h4> <p>F-stops are often identified on a camera&#8217;s LCD screen or aperture adjustment wheel as numbers in decimals, e.g. f/4.5, f/5.6, f8. f/11, etc. They are also known as the aperture of your camera, which dictates two things in your photographs: how much light is let into the camera to allow for an exposure and how much of your scene is in focus, referred to as &#8220;depth of field&#8221;. I&#8217;ll start with the first, which is fairly simple: light control. Choosing an aperture of, say, f/16 or f/22 will generally minimize the amount of light in your exposure and require a longer time to expose the photo. But choosing f/4 will let in a lot more light. That said and done, your chosen aperture then dictates your depth of field, as well. An easy way to remember what&#8217;s happening is this example:</p> <p>If we choose f/22 for an image, then we will have the equivalent of 22 meters, or a &#8220;long&#8221; focus, and we will have turned off 22 of our light bulbs, resulting in a picture that has everything in focus from right in front of our camera to the far off horizon, but we will have a very dark image. Choosing the opposite end of the aperture range, say, f/4, will give us exactly the opposite (in general terms). That is, only about 4 meters, or a &#8220;shallow&#8221; focus, and with only 4 light bulbs turned off, a much brighter picture. I hope I explained that well. F-stops are not difficult, and the above should help you get a better understanding of how they affect your photos.</p> <h4>5. Practice, practice, practice.</h4> <p>This is by far the most important, but it must be done consistently and with a concentrated effort. It took me a long time to understand the relationship between each of the crucial settings on my first camera, but the more I practiced and experimented, the quicker I understood, and then once it just clicked and I no longer had to think about it.</p> <p>Practice costs nothing other than time, especially now that we are in a digital age with a delete button, to erase our mistakes!</p> <h4>6. Simplify the scene.</h4> <p>Including too much in your scene is often too much to view, hence why one of the most effective techniques is to lessen what&#8217;s in your shot. Keeping a single subject, complemented by a plain simple background or surroundings, makes all the difference.</p> <div id="attachment_72851" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/ynakanishi/33454986521/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-72851" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-72851 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/best-tips-photography-amateurs.jpg" alt="tips to know for photography" width="570" height="380" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-72851" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/ynakanishi/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Y Nakanishi</a>; ISO 250, f/3.2, 1/1250-second exposure.</p></div> <h4>7. Line edges up.</h4> <p>Using the edge of something in your scene to interact with another edge creates a visual pathway. The shoreline of a beach leading out to a headland can create the impression of a continual line. Use these to your advantage. Line up as many things as possible to lead to your subject.</p> <div id="attachment_72852" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/pdomenick/9107344691/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-72852" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-72852 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/tips-to-take-better-photos.jpg" alt="take better photos with these tips" width="570" height="407" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-72852" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/pdomenick/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Paul Domenick</a></p></div> <h4>8. Tell a story.</h4> <p>The stronger the connection between your subject and its environment, the stronger the message, and the stronger the appeal of the image. Look to include items/things/views, etc. that complement the subject or challenge it. Either way, questions drawn from your image all lead to building a story.</p> <h4>9. Experiment with color.</h4> <p>Color isn&#8217;t the aim for every photograph. Experimenting with different color hues, such as black and white, or sepia, or some other monotone, or even just de-saturating (removing some intensity) the color a little can help reduce distraction. Too much color sometimes distracts the viewer from the subject, because they wow over the color and <em>then</em> look for a subject. It&#8217;s all about experimenting.</p> <div id="attachment_72853" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/somarj/8669186208/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-72853" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-72853 size-full" src="https://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/ways-to-improve-photography.jpg" alt="photos tips techniques" width="570" height="378" /></a><p id="caption-attachment-72853" class="wp-caption-text">Photo by <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/somarj/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">somarj</a></p></div> <h4>10. Show it off.</h4> <p>Showing your work is one of the best ways to get feedback. Show your images to everyone you can: friends, family, strangers. Listen to their very first reactions&#8230; &#8220;wow&#8221; or &#8220;oh OK&#8221; or &#8220;that&#8217;s nice.&#8221; The latter two are your first indicators that the image didn&#8217;t grab their attention immediately.

You get a very small window for errors—precision is very important—and a distinct scent lingers for a while afterward that doesn&#8217;t waft away easily. But the best part of metalworking, at least for a photographer, has to be the sparks that metals create when they&#8217;re being ground. Photographer <a href="https://www.instagram.com/tallguyphotos/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Emir Talundzic</a> took the following image of his father grinding some metal and it&#8217;s absolutely mesmerizing:</p> <div style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><a href="https://i.redd.it/bf88cu1skzi51.jpg" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img loading="lazy" src="https://i.redd.it/bf88cu1skzi51.jpg" alt="sparkles when grinding metal" width="570" height="855" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">&#8220;Magical Sparkles&#8221; by Emir Talundzic (Via Imgur.

The shallow depth of field creates a beautiful blurry foreground that gives a sense of the human subject without distracting from where our eyes ought to be: the place where the magic is actually happening.</p> <p>The beautiful and tiny sparkles are definitely the highlight of the image. It&#8217;s amazing how the photographer managed to capture them so sharply despite the shallow depth of field.</p> <blockquote><p>&#8220;The window was positioned perfectly so the light was coming down right over him. I had the lights off so we could have more focused lighting.&#8221;</p></blockquote> <p>If you think out of the box, it can even appear like he&#8217;s doing some kind of a magic trick.

Height and Perspective</h4> <p>Shoot from the hip, rather than eye level.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-65942" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-3.jpg" alt="the use of straight lines in real estate photography" width="570" height="320" /></p> <p>Shooting from eye level often creates unusual slanted lines in the frame.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone wp-image-65940 size-full" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-1-e1492695105240.jpg" alt="real estate photography tips" width="562" height="314" /></p> <p>Most rooms have a plethora of lines&#8212;vertical and otherwise&#8212;that you might not notice until you take a photo.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone wp-image-65941 size-full" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-2-e1492695079818.jpg" alt="shooting from the hip in real estate photography" width="562" height="314" /></p> <p>If you shoot from eye level, those lines appear slightly angled. When you shoot from the hip level, the lines appear straight.</p> <p>Recommended tool: tripod.</p> <h4>2. Composition</h4> <p>Most interior shots feature furniture rather than people. Thus, it is important to use the right composition techniques. If needed, don’t hesitate to move things around.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-65943" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-4.jpg" alt="how to shoot better interior photos" width="570" height="320" /></p> <p>For example, in the shot above, the bottle of soap does not make a pretty picture.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-65944" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-5.jpg" alt="better real estate photography tips" width="570" height="320" /></p> <p>Try adding elements like a book, a mat, a plant&#8212;or even a dog&#8212;to add some interesting points in the image.</p> <h4>3. Lenses</h4> <p>There&#8217;s no single lens that works in every scenario.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-65946" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-7.jpg" alt="use wide angle lenses for interior photos" width="570" height="320" /></p> <p>On a full-frame camera it is highly recommended that you shoot with a 24 or a 35mm lens. Both of these lenses are wide enough to capture everything that you need without being too wide (and therefore getting weird distortions).</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-65947" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-9.jpg" alt="use of 50mm lens in interior photos" width="570" height="320" /></p> <p>The 50mm lens works for shots where you need more details.</p> <div id="attachment_65948" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-65948" loading="lazy" class="wp-image-65948 size-full" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-8.jpg" alt="larger perspective with wide angle lenses" width="570" height="320" /><p id="caption-attachment-65948" class="wp-caption-text">Wide Angle</p></div> <p>Wide angle lenses will show off more of a room and make it appear larger, which is often a requirement from clients.</p> <h4>4. Lighting</h4> <p>For natural light, shoot during the brighter times of the day&#8212;any time between 10 A.M. and 3 P.M. This helps you get a clean and neutral look.</p> <div id="attachment_65950" style="width: 580px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><img aria-describedby="caption-attachment-65950" loading="lazy" class="size-full wp-image-65950" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-11.jpg" alt="real estate photography" width="570" height="320" /><p id="caption-attachment-65950" class="wp-caption-text">without LED panels vs. with LED panels</p></div> <p>LED panels are great for filling in shadows. But don’t sweat it if you don’t have one. Get yourself a reflector to bounce some light and fill in those shadows.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-65949" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-10.jpg" alt="use of reflectors" width="570" height="320" /></p> <p>Turn off interior lights. Most interior lights are tungsten and that can create contrasting color cast.</p> <p>However, if the lighting fixtures are something that you have to highlight in your image, you have no other option. In that case you will have to change the color temperature during post-production.</p> <h4>5. Aperture</h4> <p>Use a high f-number, somewhere between f/5.6 and f/11, to ensure that much of the frame is in focus. This is not engraved in stone, of course.</p> <p><img loading="lazy" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-65951" src="http://www.picturecorrect.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/better-interior-photos-12.jpg" alt="choice of aperture in real estate photography" width="570" height="320" /></p> <p>Depending on the look you want, you can always change the aperture to something like f/1.2 or anything wider than f/5.6.</p> <p>What other tips do you have for interior photography?</p> <br/> <p>Go to full article: <a href="https://www.picturecorrect.com/tips/interior-real-estate-photography-5-tips-for-better-results/">Interior Real Estate Photography: 5 Tips for Better Results (Video Tutorial)</a> <br/> <br/> What are your thoughts on this article?

It could be long enough to snap the camera shutter at the right moment, but short enough to instantly print a photo from your compatible smartphone and share it with friends. In the essence of capturing, printing and sticking your photos, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the next generation of IVY products: The IVY CLIQ+2 Instant Camera Printer + App and IVY CLIQ2 Instant Camera Printer. Designed with fun at their core and an all-in-one package, the new IVY CLIQ2 instant camera printers boast new features and print color quality improvements.</p> <p>“This next phase in the IVY product line is a direct result of what the end-user is passionate about when it comes to instant camera printers. Expressing individual style, instant access to printing and the option to stick photos are what make the new IVY products exciting for Gen-Z and Millennial consumers who are looking to think beyond their smartphone’s photography capabilities,” said Tatsuro “Tony” Kano, executive vice president of the Canon U.S.A., Inc.

Snap-happys also have the option to print from an SD card and the now available Live View allows users to check the image before clicking.</p> <p>Though the CLIQ+2 is small, it is mighty with the “2 in 1” ability to both snap a photo and print a photo which also doubles as a sticker – if you so choose. Simply peel off the photo backing and stick wherever you like. Don’t let the slim and sleek design fool you – upping the instant camera printer + app ante, the new CLIQ+2 +app has new fresh features to channel all that creative energy, including:</p> <p>* Three modes directly built into the camera to snap photos, such as: <br>o Landscape <br>o Portrait <br>o Selfie <br>* Built-in frame and filters – available directly from the camera</p> <p>Adding another layer of creativity, Zink Pre-Cut Circle Sticker paper is a new consumable to use with the CLIQ+2 Instant Camera Printer +App. Through the Canon Mini Print app2, the consumer simply selects the “Pre-Cut Sticker” layout option, and then can edit their circular formatted photo to their liking and instantly print.</p> <p>Available in Rose Gold and Midnight Navy, the CLIQ+2 Instant Camera + App will instantly make a sticking impression on friends and family!</p> <p><strong>IVY CLIQ2 Instant Camera Printer</strong><br>Built with a five-megapixel1 camera, automatic-flash and the coveted selfie mirror – users can click, print and stick in an instant.

The device also uses a button battery instead of rechargeable lithium-ion, doesn’t support as many color formats and is slightly less accurate at 85% instead of 92%. At $59/€67/£65 though, it also costs about half the price of the standard ColorReader.

Datacolor® ColorReader EZ – The Portable Tool that Simplifies Matching, Selecting and Coordinating Colours</h2> <p><br>Datacolor®, a global leader in colour management solutions, announces the launch of ColorReader EZ, the latest addition to the company’s ColorReader family of products that includes ColorReader and ColorReader Pro. The recommended retail price is £65 including VAT.</p> <p>The affordable new device incorporates the company’s advanced colour technology in an easy-to-use tool that simplifies the often challenging and time-consuming process of colour matching and colour coordination both in the paint colour selection and digital workflow processes used by photographers and digital designers.</p> <p>The portable, Bluetooth® connected ColorReader EZ device works in conjunction with the ColorReader mobile app (available for both iPhone and Android). The ColorReader app displays the exact measurement data in CIELAB, Hex and RGB as well as the three closest paint colour matches from the most popular paint brands. In addition to the RAL and NCS colour standards, the app includes colour fan decks from Farrow &amp; Ball, Sikkens and also the colour set of Savage Universal who specialise in photography backgrounds, which makes ColorReader EZ especially interesting for portrait and studio photographers. In total, up to 20,000 colours are available for convenient access.</p> <p>Along with their matched colours, users can build and organize colour palettes by project as well as create signature colour palettes that they can quickly share with anyone. The greater level of colour confidence afforded by ColorReader EZ saves users time and money on reworks due to colour error. ColorReader EZ is a must-have tool for anyone whose work or lifestyle includes colour decisions.</p> <p>“The colour selection process can be a challenge for all of us, since so many factors can affect how we view colour. We wanted to bring a level of ease and colour-confidence to consumers with an affordable product that they would use whenever they needed to make a decision about colour. ColorReader EZ takes the guesswork out of selecting and coordinating colours. It lets you capture colour inspiration where you find it, with an accuracy you can’t get from a smartphone image. It’s easy to then bring that colour inspiration into your own work.” said Stefan Zrenner, Director of Sales &amp; Marketing, Consumer Solutions, for Datacolor.</p> <p>To learn more about ColorReader EZ, visit <a href="ColorReader.Datacolor.com" rel="noopener" target="_blank">ColorReader.Datacolor.com</a></p> <p>Disclaimer: The use of third-party trademarks is for identification purposes only and does not connote any affiliation with, or sponsorship or endorsement by, the respective trademark holders.</p> </div> What Sony a7S III Owners Need to Know About Its Dual ISO https://fstoppers.com/gear/what-sony-a7s-iii-owners-need-know-about-its-dual-iso-518309?utm_source=FS_RSS&utm_medium=RSS&utm_campaign=Main_RSS BREAKING NEWS: Photography (digest 2) urn:uuid:441181b0-307f-fbb2-99cb-4886429fbde2 Thu, 17 Sep 2020 15:00:00 +0000 <p><a href="https://fstoppers.com/gear/what-sony-a7s-iii-owners-need-know-about-its-dual-iso-518309"><img src="https://cdn.fstoppers.com/styles/large/s3/lead/2020/09/8c7087dfa9bfcb1eb970f964ac13f8dc.jpg" alt="What Sony a7S III Owners Need to Know About Its Dual ISO" title="What Sony a7S III Owners Need to Know About Its Dual ISO by Ryan Mense" /></a></p> <p>After years of waiting, one of the most highly anticipated cameras ever is finally beginning to ship to customers.

The company is offering a 5% discount on all purchases from their <a href="https://tetenal.com/en/consumer-shop/" rel="noopener" target="_blank">online store</a> using the discount code 'tetenalpromo09'. The company offers worldwide shipping.</p> <p>Tetenal's relaunch includes new black and white chemistry, including film and photo paper developer, stop, fixer, photo paper tones, stabilizer, wash aids and wetting solutions. If you're interested in traditional wet plate photography, there's emulsion available for that as well.</p> <p>Tetenal is not content to simply keep producing more of the same, however, it is also working on new products. Tetenal has nearly completed the development of Tetenal Developer Tablets. These E6 and C41 developer tablets are dry chemicals you can dissolve in water to make your own solutions at home. This has two major advantages over traditional liquid concentrates. First, tablets have a lower shipping weight and volume. Secondly, liquids can oxidize, which limits shelf life when using chemicals in small batches. Tablets, on the other hand, are easier to store and have a longer shelf life.</p> <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="images noCrop singleNoBorder center" data-image-height="null" data-image-width="590"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="image" style="width: 590px;"><a href="https://www.dpreview.com/files/p/articles/4786484577/tetanel-developer-tablets.jpeg" target="article-6ce22d5bf31b4c4d878390603a07226a"><img border="0" data-thumbnail-height="0" data-thumbnail-width="590" height="256" src="https://2.img-dpreview.com/files/p/E~TS590x0~articles/4786484577/tetanel-developer-tablets.jpeg" width="590" data-filename="tetanel-developer-tablets.jpeg"></a></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="caption" style="width: 590px;">Tetenal has nearly finished the development of effervescent tablet forms of E6 and C41 developer.

While the company is perhaps best known for its film processing chemicals, it is also a producer of source chemicals for many other companies throughout the world. Tetenal also contributes to digital photography by supplying chemicals to companies such as Epson, Eizo and other inkjet and dye sub media distributors. Tetenal's chemicals are also critical to the motion picture industry.</p> <p>In an <a href="https://petapixel.com/2019/02/01/a-closer-look-at-tetenal-a-photo-firm-thats-too-important-to-fail/" rel="noopener" target="_blank">article</a> for <em>PetaPixel</em>, Ludwig Hagelstein wrote an excellent in-depth look at Tetenal since its 19th-century beginnings.
