The Best Tripod for Travel? Reviewing the 3 Legged Thing Brian

The one part of my gear that I’ve always kind of compromised on has been my travel tripod.  Now, I know that most photographers will always say that your tripod should come first above all gear.  But the truth is, it’s always something I’ve worked around.  It’s also something that I’ve hated that I’ve had to work around.  So, I couldn’t be happier than to finally get my hands on what if often...

Choosing the Photo Editing Software that’s Right for YOU!

I get asked about the type of photo editing software that I use a lot.  In fact, aside from people asking me what camera gear I use, it’s probably the most asked question regarding my travel photography.  And the truth is that I don’t actually just one piece of photo editing software.  I actually use a variety of programs all in conjunction to bring my images up to snuff.  For example, I might use photoshop elements to...

On Location Travel Photography in Central Mongolia

Man, Mongolia was exactly what I expected it to be.  How often does that happen?  So many times before I’ve gone to countries expecting them to be a certain way and to have my perception completely flipped on its head.  Not Mongolia, it was as advertised – tough, rural, and 100% stunning.  Since we only had limited time to tour Mongolia, though, we were kind of short of being able to do and see all the things we wanted to....

Editing Orkhon Falls: Using Photoshop to Blend Multiple Exposures

With landscape photography, it’s often the case that you have some trouble bringing out the colours of the sky, as well a bright foreground, when shooting around sunset or sunrise.  What often happens, especially if you’re trying to shoot directly into the light, is that either your foreground is completely underexposed, or your sky is way overexposed.  Getting a fluid image which is properly exposed across the scene can...
