In April of last year, our own Alex Huff took the time to put together an album of her portraiture using a service from one of our sister companies, MyPublisher. In the year since she wrote an article about her personal experiences, the book-building service from MyPublisher has added a few new features and options for their books.
This time around, I was asked to give it a whirl, which I did. Here are my impressions.

Unless you’re a full time filmmaker, you’re only video gear is probably a humble DSLR and a tripod. Technically, this is all you need and there are many excellent examples of bare-bones filmmakers with groundbreaking work. There are obstacles with this approach, however. With DSLR filmmaking, you are hampered with an inability to use AF while filming in most circumstances. Manually focusing is a challenge when you’re working with moving subjects and an extremely shallow depth-of-field at the same time. There are two key pieces of equipment you can rent without breaking your budget that will give your DSLR film a polished look and make manual focusing and tracking much easier. read more…

I am a seasoned shooter of DSLR cameras. My shoulders are callused by camera straps weighted with pro bodies and lenses, and my forearms could take down Paul Bunyan in an arm wrestling contest. I’m conditioned to not care about how heavy my gear bag is and have a mama bear sense for its whereabouts at all times. That is, until now.
I have been waiting for a camera to come out that would act as an alternative to my pro gear when being a professional isn’t the priority. Something that gives me the control I need, quality I am used to, has no digital shutter lag, and with weight and bulk I barely notice when out and about. We all know that’s a tall order and although it was attempted in many point-and-shoot camera models, it wasn’t until Panasonic released the Lumix LX100 that my checklist was met! Find out why I just can’t get enough of this best-of-both-worlds prosumer point-and-shoot.
