Also, due to my advanced ripe old age, I forgot to show you one thing, how you can delete a bunch of previously edited spots all at once.

Stuff People Say To Photographers

by Anthony Morganti

Today we’re just going to have a little fun. Recently someone was looking at my portfolio and they said, “Wow, you must have a really nice camera!”. I’ve heard that a zillion times over the years and at first I would get kind of offended — because obviously the genius is in me, not the equipment!

4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Focus With The Shutter Button

by Anthony Morganti

Back Focusing Button

The back focusing button varies by manufacturer and camera model. Check your owners manual for the button specific to your camera

Just about every modern camera today, out of the box, will focus when the shutter button is depressed half way. As you get further along in photography and learn more techniques, you’ll find that this isn’t the most efficient way to focus on a subject or a scene.

The alternative to shutter button focusing is what is commonly called, back-button focusing. Most modern DSLR’s have an option to move the focusing duties from the shutter button to a button on the back of the camera that is easily depressed with the photographer’s thumb on their right hand.

Four advantages of back-button focusing are:

Long Exposure Photography

by Christian Høiberg

Long Exposure Photography is a photographic style that has grown to be extremely popular during the last years. This style uses a longer shutter speed to capture, blur or obscure moving elements. Water turns into a magical silk or fog and the clouds streak across the sky. Another popular example is using Long Exposure near roads, the lights of cars turns into red and white lines floating over the ground. This is only a few examples of what you can do with long exposure photography, but the fact is that it’s only your creativity stopping you, there is a whole new world to explore.
