5 Outdoor Photography Essentials

5 Outdoor Photography Essentials

From beginner to seasoned veteran, here are 5 items not to forget when heading outdoors for a shoot. At one time or another, I’ve left one or more of these items behind, and regretted it. Please take this opportunity to learn from my mistakes!

1. Spare batteries

Yep, I’ve rushed out all excited about the coming “golden hour” for that once in a lifetime shot, only to discover that the battery in my camera is dead. At that point, I’ve wasted my time and energy (not to mention gasoline) and missed that once in a lifetime shot.  Aargh! Batteries will also drain more quickly in extreme cold or hot, so keep your spares insulated if at all possible. Continue Reading

Panasonic FZ1000 Review – Zooming ahead

Panasonic FZ1000 Review – Zooming ahead

Superzoom cameras are not exactly known for their image quality. They are often referred to as “bridge” cameras because they seek to bridge the gap between point-and-shoot and DSLR (or mirrorless ILC), but the only real way in which they do this is with their looks. Otherwise, a superzoom is really nothing like a DSLR at all. It combines a the sensor of a small point-and-shoot with a very high-powered zoom lens, neither of which are things that are found on entry-level DSLRs. The result is a camera that really only functions as a niche product, offering neither the convenience of a smaller point-and-shoot nor the image quality of a DSLR.

Or at least, that’s how it used to be.

Tech Tip – Choosing a dental kit

Tech Tip – Choosing a dental kit

Dental camera packages are a specialty here at Pro Photo Supply. They consist of a high-quality camera, macro lens, and a macro flash. Typically, a kit will cost between $1,500.00 and $2,500.00 depending on a doctor’s particular preferences. The vast majority of these kits will never venture beyond the front door of the office, so most dentists purchase kits at the lower end of the price scale. Continue Reading

August 2014 Lab Gallery – Jessica Durrett

Stop by the photo lab through the month of August to see the work of our own Jessica Durrett.

From the photographer:

These images were created during urban walks and forest hikes. I started working on multiple exposures as a way to create new realities while showing my passion for fantasy and nature. All images were created using 35mm film cameras. No digital manipulation was used whatsoever.

Nikon D810 Review – King of the hill

Nikon D810 Review – King of the hill

New DSLR releases used to be met by massive throngs of rabid fanboys and girls, frothing at the mouth in anticipation of the latest and greatest new thing. This is how it was in 2007, when Nikon announced their first full-frame digital SLR, the D3, and the pro-level, DX-format D300. Then they blew people away again with the D800/D800e just two years ago. Writing a review of that camera would have been easy. Reviewing the D810, however, is a much more difficult task. That’s because most of the important things to be said of the D810 have already been said of the D800/e. Things like the gargantuan megapixel count and what the heck an antialiasing filter is good (or not good) for. (Note: I don’t think anyone knew what an antialiasing filter was before the D800e. I didn’t. At any rate, apparently you don’t need one as the D810 forgoes it entirely.) Continue Reading
