You lose a method of creating contrast and leading your viewer through an image, color, and have to instead rely on different elements of an image, such as brightness, contrast and texture. It is far from the case that a nice color image works in black and white with only a simple black and white conversion. As is often true with post-processing, there are many ways to perform a...

Camera of the Year 2017: Best Enthusiast & Premium Compact Cameras


Enthusiast-grade cameras represent top-tier performance and image quality without the need to spend the extra premium for the top-of-the-line professional models, and are consistently the most popular cameras on our website.

After all, we want "the best" but don't necessarily need every bell and whistle that some of the professional-grade...

If you...

Not long ago, Tony and Chelsea...

Things don't always go according to plan out in the field. For landscape and travel photographer Thomas Heaton, he did everything right. He scouted his location ahead of time, he found the composition he wanted and yet, ultimately, you are at the mercy of the conditions when you're doing outdoor photography. In his latest video, Heaton is in dense woodlands. Light filters slowly in the woods, so patience is a must. While waiting for the right conditions, he shows off how critical a polarizer is, even when shooting in the woods....
