From the KelbyOne YouTube Channel:
 
Scott Kelby shares a really slick little tricky for aligning two piece of anything and have it be right-on-the-money pixel perfect using (wait for it...) a little used Blend Mode. It's cooler than it sounds.

B&H has Vello ShutterBoss Remote Switches currently discounted by 20%.
 
The Canon TC-80N3 has been a valuable part of my kit for quite some time. I use it for time lapses and long exposures (like the one below). Considering that the Vello ShutterBoss II Remote Switch offers similar functionality at [currently] roughly 1/3 the cost of the Canon, it makes a strong case for adding to one's kit. [Sean]

Unlike traditional static online galleries, Tamron's SoHo-styled MyPhotoExhibits (MPE) interface, available at myphotoexhibits.com, allows users to create customizable gallery exhibits with a vibrant interactive experience. Photographers simply set up a user avatar and bio, upload their favorite high-resolution images, and create their personalized online exhibit space. After organizing the exhibit and captioning the photographs, users can put finishing design touches on their exhibit. By choosing wall and floor textures and colors, frames, furniture, and lighting, photographers are invited to extend their creativity and show their work in complimentary settings. It's easy to go back into the MPE interface at any time to add more photos, tweak presentation specs, or create an unlimited number of new exhibits that feature travel pictorials, special events, projects, and more.
 
Spreading the word about these custom exhibits is another way in which MyPhotoExhibits stands out from other online galleries. Once an exhibit is ready to "open," it's easy to share it with friends. Users simply send invitations from the website or the iPhone and iPad app to Facebook or other social media platforms or by email. Visitors can sign the photographer's guestbook, choose favorite exhibits, and follow exhibiting photographers.

An app for iPhone and iPad for photography enthusiasts on the go will further enhance MyPhotoExhibits' convenience and user-friendliness. The free app-available in the iTunes App Store, which can also be accessed from tamron-usa.com/lenses/apps_mpe.php, offer easy mobile access to MyPhotoExhibits. Through their iPhone or iPad, users can browse through all available MPE exhibits, view their own exhibits, check out other photographers, and share exhibits by sending out invites to friends.

East coast beaches are usually better situated for sunrises than sunsets and Island Beach State Park, just south of Seaside Park in New Jersey, is usual in this regard.
 
A habit I have while photographing at the edges of the day, is to make regular glances to the east, "watching my back". While that habit may apply to safety in some locations, I'm referring to the lighting and color in the sky. It is natural for us to watch and photograph the sun rising or setting, but often great images are found behind you at these times of the day.
 
While photographing the colorful post-sunset sky to the west on this evening, I took that glance to the east. What I saw was that the color in the sky was visible toward the north while the rest of the easterly scene was very evenly lit. The ultra-wide 14mm focal length lens' angle of view was sufficient to capture that color along with the Atlantic Ocean and lots of sand in the foreground. To add some foreground interest, I moved in close to the sand fence post, placing it approximately 1/3 into the frame with the beach fishing party framed between it and the dunes to the left.
 
While the lighting was rather even, I still used a combination of three 1-stop-different exposures combined via a manual HDR process to darken the brightest portion of the sky relative to the rest of the beach scene.
 
Capturing a colorful sky is just one of the many reasons that your kit should have 14mm covered.
 
While the Samyang/Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC Lens is a great deal at regular price, the Canon mount version is a killer deal right now at B&H. Use promo code PSWBH16 to save $40.00 on the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC Lens for Canon. Free expedited shipping is included.
