Hand-Crafted Leather Camera Bags that Won’t Break the Bank

Hand-Crafted Leather Camera Bags that Won’t Break the Bank Leather messenger bag-style camera bags don’t come cheap. A cursory search on B&H Photo will reveal prices that often run in the $ 300+ range for something with decent storage space. Fortunately, Etsy seller LeftoverStudio offers a hand-crafted, high-quality alternative that will cost you half as much. They’re not attached to any special brand name, but these retro-looking messenger bags promise high-end durability and build-quality. Made by hand from traditionally tanned, natural goat leather, LeftoverStudio claims that a bag that is soft, water-resistant, flexible, and...

Sigma Announces Conversion Service for Switching Lenses Between Mounts

Sigma Announces Conversion Service for Switching Lenses Between Mounts The rumor was true — kinda. Sigma today announced a new Mount Conversion Service for its Global Vision line of lenses that will allow photographers to convert their lens lineups to different mounts if they ever decide to change camera brands (e.g. Canon to Nikon and vice versa). Unlike what was previously rumored, it’s not a free service: the conversion will cost you a pretty penny — just not as much as you’d pay to buy a new copy of the lens. Sigma says the first-ever service will be offered for both existing (currently seven) and future Global Vision lenses, which...

Humorous Video Pokes Fun at the Food Pic Fad

Humorous Video Pokes Fun at the Food Pic Fad Professional food photography is a legitimate pursuit that takes some serious skill. It’s done in a studio, with professional lighting and often enlists the help of a professional food stylist to get the shot just right. Food pics are a different matter, often taken in a restaurant with a cell phone while the other people at the table wait impatiently to dig in. The humorous clip above pokes fun at the latter. Put together by Wong Fu Productions, it shows what happens when “Food Pic Wars” ensue. Two of the people at the table want to take a photo of the beautiful...

Video Clips Highlight the Tracking Speed of the Canon 70D’s Dual Pixel AF Canon made a bit of a splash when it released the 70D, touting lightning fast live view and movie mode auto focus that would put the previous system to shame. The tech is called “Dual Pixel,” and now we have a few clips that show you just how fast the system works while filming in movie mode. The clips come to us courtesy of the Japanese site Nikkei Trendy, and they do a great job highlighting the tracking speed of the 70D’s AF. Unlike the clips we showed before, these were shot in typical-use situations, and weren’t put together solely to show how fast the system can...

Lighting Ratios for Portrait Photography

Lighting Ratios for Portrait Photography In portrait photography, lighting ratios are comparisons of the main light in a photo to the lesser light which fills in the shadows. This main light is known as the “key light”, and the lesser light is called the “fill light.” A lighting ratio can be expressed (K+F):F, where the main light is K+F because it includes both the key light and the fill light. In other words, lighting ratios express the level of light on the brightest lit areas in a photograph compared to the least lit parts. This ratio is also known more simply as “contrast”.
