Proposal Session – Nikon Z Edition

For my past proposal photography sessions, I used my Nikon DSLR (like the Nikon D850). But in an upcoming proposal session, I will be using my Nikon Z7II. This will be the first time I'm using this camera for a proposal session, so I thought I would share more about my equipment list for it. This video is ideal for anyone who has switched from a DSLR to mirrorless but has not yet switched their DSLR lenses to mirrorless lenses.

Returning to my first ever HDR from 2005

In 2005 when I first discovered HDR I used Photomatix to create a single-image HDR. It wasn't very good. In fact, it was a boring photo out of my parent's kitchen of the snow-covered pool. I decided to compare what Photomatix was able to do with a single-image in 2005 to what the HDR leader, Aurora HDR can do to a single-image in 2021.

Photoshop Super Resolution vs Topaz Gigapixel Ai

Photoshop Super Resolution is new to the Adobe Creative Cloud suite. Right now it's available in Camera RAW, Photoshop, and Bridge. But Adobe's plan is to bring it to Lightroom and Lightroom Classic eventually. My hope is that they improve on it, and expand on it, before doing so. You see, Photoshop Super Resolution is limited to 2X the size of the original, and also contains artifacts from the enlargements. In this video, I will compare the Photoshop Super Resolution file to Topaz Gigapixel Ai's results.

Best Teleprompter App for your Phone

If you make videos on your iPhone or Android phone then you need a Teleprompter app. With it, you can look great on video, read your script and be accurate on video. As a creator, you need to look great on video every time. Although, your video can still be candid. You see, video has become one of the best skills for your success. In this video, I share a Teleprompter app that is perfect for creating scripted video content. My favorite part of the app is that it listens to your voice, and uses its AI-based voice recognition to scroll the script further.

This is why what webcam you use matters

Today I am looking at the meross webcam and specifically comparing it to the gold standard Logitech Brio. The meross webcam is 1080P, connects through USB 2.0, and has a super-wide view comparable to the Logitech Brio. The webcam also has a built-in microphone and is priced below $30 making it an appealing webcam for anyone in need of an external webcam. How does the meross webcam hold up compared to the Logitech Brio? You be the judge.

Sun Flare In Lightroom vs Luminar

Sun Flare in Lightroom. Easy? Realistic? How about a Sun Flare in Luminar? A viewer asked how to create a sun flare in Lightroom. Fortunately I have a preset pack called Flare Up designed specifically for this task. However, Lightroom is not designed to create sun flares, but rather edit photos with sun flares already there. At the same time, Luminar is designed to create sun flares. In this video, I compare creating a sun flare in Lightroom vs Luminar.
