This is an interesting read.  Well worth the time.
As someone who has spent a life in mathematics, I see a lot of attempts to ascribe mathematical concepts to real-world ideas in an overly simplistic way. The media misinterpreting a single medical study and reporting that a glass of red wine is equivalent to an hour at the gym does not mean you should forget the treadmill and buy more Malbec. Weathermen in Kansas do not expect the flapping of butterfly wings to cause tornadoes. But in photography...

If you have an extra $15,000 in pocket change you might be interested.
Since its transition to digital, medium format has been thought of as bulky and heavy systems for high-profit commercial jobs or for wealthy photographers. Despite the attempt of Leica to create a smaller camera with the S series, no real alternative to the Hasselblad H and Phase One DF/XF has found a place on the market. However, this might change today with the brand-new Hasselblad X1D.

I had an interesting and enjoyable shoot last week. The old U.S. Forest Service cabin that has been remodeled into a home near Siverthorne Colorado. The shoot was for www.ski.curbed.com more comonly know at "Curbed Ski."

Watch the video.  But, be warned, it gets pretty scary after the collision. 
I love my DJI Phantom 4. I've gotten some great shots that I could have only dreamed of before. And yet, a recent experience left me angry and surprised.

Food for thought.
The question of whether or not to do free work is always pressing. The debate becomes a grey area of ambiguity with many people firmly on one side or the other, and the rest of us stuck somewhere in between questioning our self worth as artists. There are strong arguments on both sides of the arena. Over the course of my career I have wandered back and forth across the defining line only to lately land in the anti-free work position, and here is ...

I'm not sure I agree with this.  I find taking more time to compose your images (like we did in the film days) and limiting yourself you often end up with better results.  But there is something to be said for "just shoot everything from every angle and hope you get one good shot."
Overshooting may sound like it's a dumb thing to do, but over my time doing photography, I’ve learned how important it really is. Here, I will go over a few reasons why you should shoot more than you need to. They apply to almost any sort of shooting situation.

What do you think?  True or false?
A few days ago, a friend of mine brought a DJI Osmo to film alongside his usual DSLR set up. The client questioned them: “Why are you filming on your phone?”

I always though of this as a "dream" job.  After watching the video I am not so sure.
In his eight years photographing the president, Pete Souza has taken an estimated two million photos. In that time, he has seen the president as a leader, a family man, and a human being, documenting not only his time in office, but much of his personal life as well. Souza's perspective on his work is both fascinating and enlightening.

Never leave home without it!
Gaffer tape might be the best invention ever. Ok, maybe not ever, but it's certainly up there. It's so useful that Jay P. Morgan of the The Slanted Lens came up with a list of 50 ways to use it. He also wrote a musical number dedicated to the glory that is gaffer tape — a man of many talents.

How about 1,000,000,000,000 (that's 1 trillion) frames per second!
Light moves fast — like really fast. 299,792,458 meters per second in a vacuum, to be exact. Capturing it might seem like a pipe dream, but one MIT professor has done it by doing something remarkable: creating a camera that shoots at one trillion frames per second.

Some good advice here.
Some of us photographer types are rather notorious gear junkies. I'm as guilty of it as the next guy. We like our toys and love to collect as many gadgets and doohickeys as we can get our hands on. Few things grab our attention more than the spec sheet of the newest cutting edge camera. Our budgets, however, aren't as infinite as our eagerness to spend them, which often leads to the need to prioritize purchases. Despite what your eagerness is tel...
