Google Cloud Vision drives much of the AI photo software we see available today. In this video, I walk through what Google Cloud Vision is doing behind the scenes and how it can impact photography software you can buy and use.

Finding the right lighting and composition for landscapes can be a challenge sometimes, for many photographers. In this short video, I will address that struggle faced by photographers. Landscape photography light is often out of our hands due to the nature of how light works out in a landscape environment.
