From the TIME YouTube Channel:
 
On the day the Yankees retired Babe Ruth’s number, Nat Fein’s instinct to shoot him in 1948 from behind paid homage not only to the baseball legend but to the House that Ruth Built.

Last week we shared the news that B&H was going to start carrying popular tripod, ball head and accessory brand manufacturer Really Right Stuff. Now I'm happy to say that B&H's RRS inventory is 235 products strong with all images and product information loaded onto the site.
 
Have you ever wondered about the small tripod featured in many of Bryan's product review images? You can find the tripod right here.

There are only a small handful of DSLR lenses that can take in a view this wide. Basically, excluding fisheye lenses, the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens or one of the three Sigma variants including the latest, the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art Lens are your choices.
 
With the senate recessed for the holiday, I made a visit to this location to give the Sigma 12-24 Art a workout. The angle of views afforded by this lens are a blast to use and with the widest, I was able to capture a great deal of the French Renaissance architecture in the senate chamber.
 
While the 12mm angle of view was great to have, the bright lights were a bit of a problem from an exposure standpoint. But, they were very beautiful and I wanted to see some of the detail in them. Thus, an HDR technique was needed.
 
The primary image was captured at 2.5 seconds with a second image captured at .4 seconds (2 2/3 stops darker) to retain some of the detail in the lights. It can be very challenging to composite two images captured at such drastically different brightness while retaining a natural appearance, but here is a technique that proves rather easy.
 
First, stack the two images in Photoshop with the brighter image on top. Then add a layer mask to the top layer and select the layer mask. Select the brush tool, select black as the color and reduce the opacity to something low, such as 10%. Select a brush size appropriate for the area that needs detail added (areas too bright in the original exposure) and adjust the brush hardness as desired (softer may be better in this situation). Then paint the blown areas until just the right amount of detail shows through. The process is easy and the results appear natural.
 
When photographing a symmetrical scene such as this one, it is usually desirable to have the scene perfectly centered in the frame (for perfect balance) and to have the camera perfectly centered in the room (to avoid perspective-caused converging horizontal lines) and horizontally level (to keep horizontal lines parallel to the frame borders). As you can figure out from the resulting image dimensions, I cropped this image very slightly from the top left to perfect my capture. Note that no distortion correction was used. Even at 12mm, this lens is a good performer in this regard.
 
A larger version of this image is available on BryanCarnathan.com, Flickr, Google+, Facebook and 500px. If reading from a news feed reader, click through to see the framed image. If you find these tips useful, please share them in your circle of friends!

Apple added the ability to edit RAW files in its iOS 10 update released earlier this year. This left many asking, "What's the easiest way to transfer RAW files to my iPhone/iPad?"
 
According to photography Brian Worley, the answer is to use a Lightning 8-Pin to USB Female OTG Adapter and your camera's USB cable to transfer files directly to your mobile device.
 
Directions
 
  • With the camera turned off, plug the USB cable into the camera's USB port and attach the OTG adapter.
  • Unlock the smart device and plug in the OTG adapter.
  • Turn on the camera. At this point the Apple Photos app will open and an import icon will be visible.
