Sharpening Fujifilm RAW Files Without Worms

UPDATE: I have dabbled with many options since I wrote this, I moved to Capture One Pro for a time which produces incredibly sharp results. I didn’t like the way it processed the tonality of the images and I didn’t like the workflow. I went back to Lightroom and now only use a small amount

Mindshift BackLight 26L Review

    Recently I upgraded my Fujifilm lenses to their top of the line XF series zoom lenses, due to their larger size and number of lenses I realized it was time for a new bag to carry all of this gear. I wanted a bag that made it easy to access gear without taking

Predicting Weather for Landscape Photography

Predicting weather is arguably one of the most important aspects of landscape photography; we are bound by the weather to determine our quality of light and drama. Over the years I have become a bit of a weather geek, I have tried many different services and always comparing the quality of forecasts and information between

Review – Fujifilm X-T2 For Landscape Photography

It has been 2 years since I wrote my Review of the Fuji X-T1. If you are new to the Fuji system I would recommend reading this post first to understand my affection for Fuji. The X-T1 has been my primary camera all this time, and I have had no regrets moving to this system. I

Review of Mindshift Chest Pack

This summer I have been testing out the new Mindshift chest pack called the Mindshift Multi-Mount Holster, I chose the 10 Model which is the smallest, and fit my Fuji X-T1 like a glove.

Recovering Deleted Photos

At one point or another we have all made the mistake of deleting a photo from our camera, or formatting the card before downloading the photos. You may think that the data is lost forever, but most likely it is still there! When you format a card you are simply creating a new ‘file table’,

Evernote for landscape photography scouting

    Landscape photography invokes wanderlust in the majority of us, we see a a location on the Internet we want to visit, or a friend tells us about a new place that we must go. For me, seeing and exploring new places goes hand in hand with my photography; but my memory is not always

Review of Vallerret Photography Gloves

I have issues with cold hands, I may even have a mild case of Raynaud’s disease. My hands get cold instantly in even with the slightest chill, and it is nearly impossible to warm them back up without a major heat source. It is annoying and makes photography a lot less fun for me. Needless

In Defense of Post Processing

A recent photo I posted of this butte in southern Utah generated a small amount of controversy because of my use of perspective correction. I wanted to write this post to defend our rights as creative artists, because I see this type of negative attitude towards anyone who manipulates a photo in any way that

Tools for the Self Employed Photographer

I wanted to share the tools I have found that make self employed life manageable. Running every aspect of your business can be a daunting task at times, and as your business grows you will want to outsource things like bookkeeping, but for the majority of us that are starting out, there is no budget

Mindshift rotation180° Horizon 34L Review

Years ago I reviewed the first generation of the revolutionary Mindshift 180 bag, it was my favorite bag yet. At the time I could not have imagined how they would improve this bag, how wrong I was. Mindshift has outdone themselves with their new series of camera bags. Mindshift sent me the rotation180° Horizon 34L

Free Lightroom Presests for Landscape Photography

I have been hard at work to create a set of Landscape Photography Presets that are not gimmicky. No instagram-like filters to be found here, only high quality presets that will transform dull raw files into beautiful images. The develop presets are intended to take your image from zero to print quality in only a few
