The long awaited successor to the popular Nikon D7100 has just touched down in our lab, and we wanted to get you our First Shots without delay! The big story with the D7200 is a big increase in buffer depth over the predecessor, granting sports and wildlife shooters greater image capture ability for burst shooting. We'll take a closer look at that and all the other major changes in our review to come, but for an initial glance at still image quality as ISO rises you can use our First Shot lab samples of our Still Life test...

Lightroom is one of the — if not the — most comprehensive photo management and editing applications out there. However, with an application as rich in features and capabilities as Lightroom is, it's easy to miss small aspects of it that can truly take your workflow to the next level. One such feature is the ‘Paint' tool, which can be used to easily categorize images in a number of ways. To demonstrate the Paint tool and its usefulness in your workflow, wedding photographer Jared Platt has shared a... (read more) [...]

In 1978, after more than a year of diplomatic efforts, the Camp David Accords were signed, establishing a framework for peace between Egypt and Israel. Egypt had been in a state of declared war with Israel since 1948, punctuated by several short but violent conflicts, including the Six-Day War in 1967. In 1977, U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Secretary of State Cyrus Vance laid the groundwork to get representatives from Egypt and Israel to meet and discuss conditions for ending hostilities and normalizing diplomatic relations. Israel agreed to withdraw its troops from the Sinai Peninsula, and Egypt agreed to officially [...]

After spending time out in the Maine wilderness for its Shooter's Report, and then more time back at Nikon's repair shop for a fix to the widely-reported flare problem, the D750 is back and our full, in-depth Nikon D750 review is now complete. The latest enthusiast full-frame DSLR from Nikon sits in a sweet spot between the more "entry-level" FX model, the D610, and the decidedly pro-level, ultra-high-res D810, and while it shares many features from both these upper and lower models, the D750 has some unique features all its own....

Don't tell people what they can already see. “The cousins went swimming with Uncle Greg” will always be trumped by “Alexander was scared of the water, but Uncle Greg's kindness and humor soon had him swimming with all of the cousins.” Words make a difference. Today's topic is difficult to photograph. It's all about words. In fact, it is words, the words you put with your pictures. Any language that accompanies your pictures is going to change the viewers reaction to the picture. For example, “Can't wait to see you at the picnic... [...]

The premise behind Photoshoot.io is simple. After syncing the... (read more) [...]

It's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of photography. Whether it's lusting over the newest strobes or pixel-peeping the RAW files from the latest DSLR, it's important to occasionally step back and look at the larger picture. To help take that step, Ted Forbes of The Art of Photography has released a 15-minute video that takes a thoughtful look at what a photograph is and how its definition is changing as technology and more affect how images are captured, stored and shared. As someone who comes across hundreds of articles... (read [...]

We often frown upon selfies. But their value does have some merit, particularly when done tastefully. One such method is when a self-portrait is taken as part of a larger project, to document changes to yourself over the course of days, weeks, months and years. However, consistently capturing photos and storing them in an efficient method isn't always an easy task. Furthermore, it's almost impossible to line up the images the same way every day as to make the resulting video as seamless as possible. That is unless you're using... (read more) [...]

These photos show festivals and glimpses of the new season from around the world, as we shake off the winter and greet the spring. [...]
