My G+ avatar comes to life as I chat with my great Italian friend +Ugo Cei about Mirrorless cameras, the British Commonwealth, community, and a crack team of research scientists.  
 
The State of Mirrorless Ep. 009 – Justin Balog

Here we are with another episode of The State of Mirrorless, that is shaping up to be quite an interesting and successful series of interviews about the world of mirrorless camera systems.

In this episode, me and +Mathieu Gasquet interviewed +Justin Balog of The Photo Frontier. Justin is an enthusiastic travel and landscape photographer and a great educator. We discussed his recent trip to Belize and we showed some beautiful photographs of the country and of its people.

Of course, we also discussed cameras and lenses and specifically the nice things that can come from restricting oneself to a single focal length for a trip or a photography project. This is also the focus of a project that Justin recently launched, WE35. You should definitely check it out! http://www.thephotofrontier.com/35/

Enjoy the show and stay tuned for the next episode, to be released exactly a week from now. Meanwhile, Happy Holidays to you all!

Let's never forget the power of a photograph! 
 
We had the privilege of witnessing someone make their first photograph and wrote a story about it. If you have a second, give it a read.

All you need to know about photography in the jungle.
 
At our annual Belize Photo Jamboree we trekked into the jungles of Central America and returned with powerful photography knowledge. Knowledge that we are still trying to come to terms with ourselves. As we decipher these ancient texts we will do our best share them with you. So far this is what we have learned.

#WE35  is still looking for 10 more scientists to join our research team. Here is some awesomeness from our team member, +Bob Lussier 
 
I'm on the research team for The Photo Frontier's #WE35 project. (Read about it here: http://www.thephotofrontier.com/35/ ) The concept is simple but the execution is not. We are tasked with shooting in 35mm FOV. That's a 35mm lens, or equivalent in other than full frame 35mm.  

Think about it — go shoot exclusively with one focal length. One prime lens. Expand your vision. Make it work. 

So I'm launching a #WE35 series. I'm turning my lens on the inner city storefronts of Lawrence, MA. Since I get home after dark, most of these images will be taken at night. That should also add some interesting data to the team's research.

I've been shooting with a 50mm prime for the past 5 months, man it makes you work when you have a fixed focal length.

Some folks have been asking about the ‪#‎WE35‬ project. We are still assembling the research team. Once that is done we will be notifying everyone about the logistics. For now, our mission is clear. The WE35 project has three main goals.

--As creatives, we hope to expand our own creative vision and help others with theirs.

--As photographers, we will provide a democratized visual survey of this incredible world.

--As a research team, we hope to forge life long friendships and build a strong community around the world.The kind of community that you can count on when you visit that part of the world. A friend to photograph with or grab a coffee.

The Way I See Things

The world is a beautiful place full of wonderful people. Seeking out its beauty and sharing it with others is what I do. If only to encourage others to do the same. There is something transcendent about art and beauty. It’s a common ground that breaks down the barriers that divide us. I’m a dreamer, but in my heart of hearts, I know if we all recognize and share the beauty of this world, we will make it a better place.

Learning

I'm the author of the critically acclaimed iPhone Photography tutorial that has helped thousands of people make images they are excited to share with the world!  It is fun, easy, and totally free! You can find it here:

This is what your local bike should be. Family owned and run for over three decades. I've been a longtime customer and have had nothing be great experiences at LVC. Great shop, quality service, and expert advice are the cliches I would use to describe it. However, the most important quality is they know your name. It's like the Cheers of bike shops. Well, except they serve bikes and not beers. You won't be disappointed!
