Fujifilm GFX 50R Medium Format Versus Sony a7R III Full Frame: An Artistic Comparison

While these two cameras are different in a whole host of ways, they have similar strengths insofar as they’re both concerned with high resolution and for pixel peepers, it’s an interesting comparison. However, what’s more interesting — to me at least — is a real-world, artistic comparison; which produces more pleasing results?

Critique the Community Aerial / Aviation Photography

Aerial / Aviation Photography

Submit Your Best “Aerial” Images

Welcome to another Critique the Community! For this contest we want to see your best photos that capture “aerial” photography.

Since we expect “aviation” photography to be a less common theme, we wanted to make this week’s critique a little more broad.

A super simple 2-light setup for shooting still life photography

Big-shock I know. A coloured gel lighting technique from me is hardly surprising, but this time I’m scaling things down and today I’ll be sharing a super simple 2 light setup for still-life. To be clear, I’m a million years away from being an even remotely good still-life photographer, but I thought I’d share this […]
