I've wanted to refresh the site's logo for a long time and recently was able to make that happen.
I know, this isn't the most timely post (the new logo went up a bit over a week ago), but for those who have not been on the site for the last week, check it out.
Additional (ongoing) site changes have also been made, primarily to improve the mobile experience.
There's always much more to do.
Feathering a light is so much more than simply turning it away from your subject.
In this video photographer, Gavin Hoey takes you through why feathering light is an essential studio lighting skill and how he uses it to control light in his small home studio.
Although the most common way to feather a light is to move it horizontally, Gavin also shows you how vertical feathering can open up more lighting options.
He also bursts a popular portrait myth that feathering a light will give a softer light.
Bryce Canyon National Park is awesome and Bryce Point is a great location to photograph this canyon from.
This vantage point has a complete view of the Bryce Canyon amphitheater with good lighting both early and late in the day.
This image was captured just before sunset with the warm late day light reflecting into the scene from the back-lit pinnacles.
Sometimes we don't get it right when we first process an image.
Usually, the older the image is, the less likely we got the processing right.
As our skills increase, our older work does not seem as good as it once did, and that was the case with this image.
Significant underexposure was the issue I grew to dislike the most.
Truth is, I'm not really sure what I was thinking when first processing this image, but I later prefered a much brighter brighter exposure (while still managing the highlights).
As usual, this gear is being sold to raise funds.
Check the rather-long list to see if anything fits into your kit.
Most items are like new.
The list has not grown much (notably a RRS MC-34 monopod was added) since I last shared it, but all prices have been reduced — most were reduced significantly.
Expect Canon refurbished gear to be in like-new condition with a same-as-new warranty.
This gear is a great deal anytime but it is an awesome deal at 10% off.

A love letter to our city and to all those creatives out there hustling, dreaming and creating.
On the notes of George Gershwin's immortal "Rhapsody in Blue," New York City wakes up and begins the daily cycle of life, dreams, and their inevitable intersections. We follow three creatives as they hustle and fight against and within the rhythm of the city to chase their artistic visions.
Most say about New York: “You love it or you hate it!” It’s a city of contrast — of black and white — but many often miss its countless shades of gray.
There are often a lot of challenges one must deal with when working from home.
The lack of an extra monitor (or monitors) doesn't have to be one of them.
Pick up one (or more) of the on-sale monitors at B&H to maximize your at-home productivity.
