My Dad's Stories - New Boots and Plaid Pants
As a kid, my mother would read me bedtime stories, but my father would tell me exciting stories from his own childhood. They were action packed, almost unbelievable, and probably influenced my own rambunctious childhood. This particular story took place in Mt. Vernon, New York in the '60s and involved his brother Freddy, an abandoned car, and kid breaking in his new boots.

We're Getting Better - Episode 204: Who Are You Trying To Impress
Who are you trying to impress? I’ve been extremely geeked about the success so far of the We Love You project. I’ve talked about it in almost every episode of Shooting with Shooters and of course posting flyers all over social media for every city we visited. The goal is to take a the individual portrait of 1000 Black men ranging from babies to great grandfathers. So far we’ve hit 4 cities and now have had over 500 participants. Rewind to earlier this year. A month before my 30th birthday. I’m packing up my Brooklyn apartment and getting ready to move back to Maryland. I’m moving back home… for 2nd time. 5 years prior, I had made a similar move from Norfolk, Virginia back home to regroup. It’s great to have family that lets you come back and embraces you… but at some point you start to feel like you failed. After all, you’re not following the expected path to adulthood. You graduate high school, go to college. Four years later you start your career and find a wife or a husband then start a family. You work for about 30 years retire and enjoy life as a grandparent after watching your own kids follow the same path to adulthood. … yea, that wasn't and still isn’t my path.

Instagram.com/WereGettingBetter — Blow up vs Enlarge This one is a common. If you blew an image up, it would no longer exist… because you destroyed it - being blown up and all. If you’re looking to make an image bigger, you mean to enlarge it. Although you’ll hear it said a lot, once you think about it, it’s actually quite clear. Really, what sense does it make to blow an image up? Is it a balloon? Nope. But, if you had a negative and were in a darkroom creating prints, you would use an enlarger to do so. Crop in vs Crop “Crop” implies that you’re removing an unwanted outer area of an image. Therefore, when someone suggests you “crop them in” a photo, they’re asking an impossible task. They may actually be thinking of the many capabilities you have when using Adobe Photoshop. It’s pretty common for someone who is not familiar with your area of expertise to know one overarching tool to program and abuse that term when attempting to relate to what you do. When this happens, don’t be a jerk about - but seize this opportunity to provide a quick lesson. “Oh, well if I crop, you won’t be in the image. I think you mean add you in the photo, right?” You don’t have to say that exact phrase but find your smooth, subtle, or even quirky way to pass on some knowledge. Just don’t be rude about it. Portrait vs Self Portrait This one is simple. A portrait can be of anyone. A SELF portrait has 2 requirements: 1) It needs to be a portrait of YOU. 2) It needs to be created by YOU. So if someone takes you picture, that my friend, is a portrait. True, it is of you, but YOU didn’t do it yourself. Apply this logic to biography and auto biography - autobiography being your life story written by you and a biography being just life story about anyone, written by anyone.

The 1D X Mark II features an increase in resolution to 20 megapixels. Although the native ISO stays the same at 100-51,200, the expanded range ups to 409,600. The Mark II features new, dual Digic 6+ processors that allow for processing 14 raw or JPEG frames per second (and up to 16 in Live View). Helping these high frame rates is a shutter with carbon fiber blades that is built to withstand 400,000 exposures. These processors put out 4K video clips at 60 frames per second until you fill up your card. Wow. This capability is due to the CFast 2.0 card slot in the Mark II. Shooting at full speed, the buffer will allow recording of up to 170 raw frames on CFast 2.0 cards or 73 frames on a CF card. There is also continuous autofocus while shooting stills and video, regardless of the frame rate. A 360,000-pixel metering sensor helps with subject recognition and tracking across the 61-point High Density Reticular AF II system with 41 cross-type points. Canon's new in-camera Digital Lens Optimizer technology, allows for in-body lens aberration and diffraction correction for every shot, saving you one more step in post. The 1D X Mark II is weather sealed, even at its connection points. And incase you’re into this, the GPS functionality is built-in, and includes an auto time-syncing feature that syncs with Universal Time Code via satellites.

A luminosity histogram reflects tonality; single-channel histograms indicate the number of pixels of a given color at each tone from darkest to lightest. Source: 30-Second Photography - Tech Brief Nikon’s not playing around. The new D5 DSLR scheduled to drop in March was previewed at CES with a gang of specs that’ll leave you drooling. The full frame camera has a 20.8 megapixel CMOS sensor, a native ISO range from 100 - 102,400, and extended ISO settings of 50 to (you ready for this?) 3,280,000! Crazy! It also totes 153 auto focus points and 99 cross sensors with continuous shooting at 12 frames per second. The D5 boasts a 3.2 inch, 2.36 million-dot touchscreen LCD, dual memory card slots that will either hold XQD or CF cards, and a USB 3.0 connection If that’s not enough, it’s the first Nikon DSLR to include 4k video recording. Still interested? Well you can pre-order yours now for $6,500. Body only of course.

We're Getting Better - Episode 031: Andre D Wagner
In this episode, we talk to Andre D. Wagner about how he ended up in New York, capturing photos full-time, shooting with a Leica camera, developing film, The Purist and other adventures. www.AbstractElements.com Instagram.com/PhotoDre Website: www.BryonSummers.com Instagram.com/BryonSummers Phocabulary: Rangfinder Camera A rangefinder camera gets it’s name from the rangefinder focusing system built in (or on much older cameras, attached to the hot shoe as an accessory. The system is typically a split-image rangefinder: a range-finding focusing mechanism allowing the photographer to measure the subject's distance and take sharp photographs. Most varieties of rangefinder cameras show two images of the same subject, one of which moves when a calibrated wheel, usually on the lens is turned; when the two images coincide and become one your image is in focus. The distance can be read off the wheel or lens in feet as well as meters. Older, non-coupled rangefinder cameras display the focusing distance and require the photographer to transfer the value to the lens focus ring; cameras without built-in rangefinders could have an external rangefinder fitted into the accessory shoe. Earlier cameras of this type had separate viewfinder and rangefinder windows; later the rangefinder was incorporated into the viewfinder. Tech Brief The rumored Fuji X-Pro2 has leaked online with detail specs.

Aberrations commonly show up in the form of halation around contrasty portions of the image or “smearing” of color toward the edges of the frame. Aspheric lens surfaces and advanced lens coatings are often used in more expensive or complex lenses as a means of reducing aberrations.

We're Getting Better - Episode 028: Annoying Questions aka Don't Ask
In this episode we address a few annoying questions that should be rethought before asked. Don't think of it as a venting session but more of a client etiquette lesson. Website: www.BryonSummers.com Instagram.com/BryonSummers Phocabulary: Watermark Traditionally, a watermark is an image or icon that is embedded into paper for security purposes (American paper money has a watermark). In digital photography, a watermark refers to information that is embedded in the image data to protect the copyrights of the image. Metadata Metadata is data that describes other data. Meta is a prefix that in most information technology usages means "an underlying definition or description." Metadata summarizes basic information about data, which can make finding and working with particular instances of data easier. For example, camera/lens/exposure information, time/date/ are examples of very basic document metadata. Having the ability to filter through that metadata makes it much easier for someone to locate a specific document.

The sun is the hard light with which everyone is most familiar, but our experience of it is always somewhat diffused through the atmosphere surrounding the earth. The degree of diffusion changes dramatically with weather conditions. Hard light creates harsh contrast and crisp, hard-edged shadows.

Each beam continues to cast a shadow, but the many shadows are all in slightly different positions. Soft light results, with its shadow being a gradual transition rather than a distinct line. Accomplished by passing light through translucent material (or atmospheric particulate like smoke, fog, clouds, or rain), or bouncing it off a matte surface.

We're Getting Better - Episode 025: A Story About Progression
In this week’s episode it's story time. When was the last time you noticed progress? I mean a real evolution in your quality of work? How will you know when you've gotten better? Website: www.BryonSummers.com Instagram.com/BryonSummers Phocabulary: Minimalism A style known for its precise and pared-down aesthetic. Minimalism advocates an essential quality of geometric abstraction, and often uses a monochromatic or a highly reduced array of colors. With influences from Zen philosophy and the Japanese sense of beauty, essential forms, order, materials, and simplicity are advocated. Minimalism can be seen as a reaction against expressionism, ornamentation, and even consumerism.

Source: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/explora/photography/buying-guide/glossary-digital-photography-terms Book: This week I’m suggesting you head to your local book store check out a few magazines that catch your eye. Pay attention to the model or subject on the cover and analyze the editing. Try to figure out how much retouching was involved to create that finished product.

Catchlights indicate the direction from which the light is coming, and help give eyes a sense of life. The size of the catchlight has a particularly dramatic impact, but large catchlights require very large sources, or sources placed extremely close to the face. Reflectors or additional sources are sometimes used just to create catchlights in portraiture.

White clouds also act as reflectors and pick up a wide range of dramatic colors as they receive the last or first rays of sunlight.

Not having money is discouraging and it can create doubt that you’ll be able to pursue your dream. Take a deep breath, grab a pencil and paper or whatever you use to make notes and create a plan. In this episode, we talk about funding your goals and planning to stay on track. Website: www.BryonSummers.com Instagram: @BryonSummers Phocabulary: Bokeh An English transliteration of a Japanese word that means “haze” or “blur.” Pronounced boh-keh, it refers to the out-of-focus areas in a photograph with limited depth of field, particularly around, but not limited to, the highlight areas. Bokeh appears as little circles in the unsharp areas. Depending upon the shape of the opening formed by the blades of the lens’s aperture, the circles appear either more or less circular. Good bokeh, which has a more “natural” appearance, is most commonly defined by smoother, round-shaped highlights that blend smoothly into the darker shadow areas, an effect that’s directly attributed to the degree of roundness of the lens aperture.

Website: www.BryonSummers.com Instagram: @BryonSummers Phocabulary: Firmware is a software program permanently etched into a hardware device such as a keyboards, hard drive, BIOS, or video cards. It is programmed to give permanent instructions to communicate with other devices and perform functions like basic input/output tasks. Firmware is typically stored in the flash ROM (read only memory) of a hardware device. It can be erased and rewritten. Firmware was originally designed for high level software and could be changed without having to exchange the hardware for a newer device. Firmware also retains the basic instructions for hardware devices that make them operative. Without firmware, a hardware device would be non-functional.

In this episode we talk about editing, creating a smooth workflow, using presets, and deciding whether to print or post your work. All of this a MORE live from Adorama in NYC. Website: www.BryonSummers.com Instagram: @BryonSummers Phocabulary: Resolution - The degree of detail an imaging system is capable of capturing. In the case of digital photography, this is a function of how many pixels an image sensor records, or the number and density of pixels within a physical print. The physical size of a sensor places limitations on how many discrete pixels can be fit onto it. With respect to a print, resolution is more flexible, as the larger the print, the farther away viewers typically stand. Billboards, for instance, typically have 10-15 pixels per inch. Prints intended to be viewed at arm’s length in a publication are commonly printed around 300 pixels per inch.

Sometimes referred to as “digital negatives”, RAW files are not quite images, as they must be interpreted through a number of software algorithms to become viewable, editable or printable. RAW files have no permanent commitment to white balance saturation, or contrast. In comparison to any other file format currently available, they are significantly larger than JPEG anreven TIFF files. The quality is far greater as well. They are never permanently changed by processing because a copy is always extracted while the original remains untouched. Book Steal Like An Artist x Austin Kleon Music: KB @push-music

F-stops are defined numerically - f1/4, f5.6, f22, etc. Larger, or wider apertures, allow more light to enter the lens, which results in faster shutter speeds. Faster apertures also allow for selective focus (narrow depth-of-field), while smaller (slower) apertures allow for greater depth-of-field. Wider apertures are preferred for portraits, while smaller apertures are preferred for landscapes.
