Long exposures using ND filters are a great way to make more dynamic looking landscape images. Whilst there are many great apps for calculating the long exposure times with specific ND filters, I recently found myself in temperatures so cold that a mobile device would not work. This reminded me that a simple printed long exposure table is a great resource to keep in your camera bag. I went looking for a good one to print from the internet, but since one didn't exist that met my standards, I decided to make one and share it with you guys.

Well... one thing lead to another and I also decided I can't just share the raw numbers with you, I might as well take the opportunity to add to the growing list of resources on Shutter Muse, and explain how you get these numbers as well. Personally I find it interesting to know a bit of the "back story" to all the photographic physics.

I was researching some new hard drives today online and after reading a mountain of customer "reviews", it became clear to me that there are some serious misunderstandings out there that have caused people to lose a lot of their data. Imagine losing all your photos?!

I was compelled to write this post immediately, even though it wasn't on my busy schedule, because I don't want any of my followers and readers to lose any of their precious photos.

RAID users, please pay particular attention to this post...
Many people misunderstand what a photo backup actually is, and those people stand the risk of losing everything in the blink of an eye because they think...

The rare occasions when I have lost digital images have invariably been due to human error rather than hard drive failure.

Just a few hours left to get this deal! 
The Photography Business Bundle deal is in its final hours now and I wanted to draw attention to a few key points as to why I think it's something you shouldn't miss out on.

For a travel adapter that does it all, I recommend this:
http://www.amazon.com/Twist-Universal-Ultra-portable-Worldwide-charging/dp/B010Q6GSR6
It has a total of 4 USB outlets, plus the ability to add a Macbook charger or larger iPad charger. It's all I need, plus the cables.

Field of view is a lens characteristic that is directly related to the focal length of your lens and determines how much you can see with a lens.

Leica price aside, would you ever buy a digital camera that didn't have an LCD screen on it? Can you see the point of it?!?
Rumors have started to surface of a forthcoming Leica M series camera. Possibly named the Leica M-D, the new model may be marketed under the slogan “Complete Concentration – Less Technology, More Creative Freedom – Typical M”. In fitting with this moniker we are hearing rumors that much like the Leica M 60 Edition, the …

An amazing experience. As a photographer, I couldn't ask for a better way to capture the beauty of this area. Friendly and professional service from start to finish, can't wait to fly on the Photo Epic tour again!

reviewed in the last week
I booked a week in advance and they called an hour before my appointment to cancel because they were too busy with other dogs. I had scheduled much of my week's work around this so that I could be available to drop my dog off in the middle of the day. Whilst they were apologetic, they made no attempt to remedy the situation other than to suggest that I book another slot the following week. If I were them I would have moved heaven and earth to put this right, especially for a first time customer.
