Fro Knows Photo Go Above And Beyond Auto Review

INTRODUCTION FRO HAS TRAINING LESSONS Welcome to my review of the Fro Knows Photo Go Above and Beyond Auto video course, and this is one long 3 hours video meant to help the beginners. As a rather advanced photographer myself, I would never have bought a beginner’s course. But nonetheless, I still got it out of curiosity, and because it’s by the Fro. For you guys who are already familiar with Jared Polin, AKA the FRO, you might be surprised to learn that he actually offers a few paid video courses……

Nikon D610 Camera Review

INTRODUCTION A PAINFUL REVIEW Welcome to my Nikon D610 camera review, and this is probably one of my most expensive review. Why? Because I baptized my D800E in sea water and it went into a coma. Repairs will cost a whopping $500++, and I chose to buy a new camera instead. Oh well, bad accidents do happen, and please do take extra care of your gear. For now, I might as well do a review on the D610, and share why I chose the D610 instead of D750 or D810…

Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art Lens Review

INTRODUCTION WHAT THE ART? Welcome to my Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4 lens review. For you guys who are not followers of Sigma, this is an art series lens – Sort of like Nikon’s gold ring lens, and Canon’s red ring lens. For those of you who are not familiar with the gold and red rings… this is basically a top of the cream lens. So the 35mm lens is a versatile one. Generally used in landscape, portrait, and even street photography. The Sigma art series has been highly anticipated for their performance…

Sleeklens Landscape Adventure Photoshop Actions Review

INTRODUCTION WALKING ON THE WILD SIDE? Welcome to my review on the Sleeklens Landscape Adventure Collection Photoshop Actions. It is kind of weird for me to be reviewing something that is not camera gear, but there is always a first time. There a ton of free Photoshop brushes, plugins, and actions out there. So what makes this collection special? Is it worth to pay the price for this collection? Well, since the folks at Sleeklens are kind enough to send it over for an honest, no holds barred review – They…

Lee Filters Graduated Neutral Density Review

INTRODUCTION A STAPLE FOR LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHERS Welcome to my Lee Filters Graduated Neutral Density review. Every landscape photographer will probably have a set of Graduated Neutral Density (GND) filters and a Circular Polarizer (CPL) in their bag. I have a set of 3 Lee Filters GND in my bag for like, years now. It has almost never left my bag, and I bring it with me even when I go travelling. That goes to show how much I cannot survive without the set of Lee GND Filters, and in this review,…

Hoya R72 Infrared Filter Review

INTRODUCTION THE WORLD OF THE UNSEEN Ever wondered how the world in IR looks like? Welcome to the Hoya R72 Infrared Filter review. So this Hoya filter, the R72 is related to IR. But what does it exactly do, apart from sounding very sci-fi? As much as some people like to think that it “converts” a normal camera into an IR camera – It does not. This filter only blocks out visible light. So before you buy the Hoya R72, please check if your camera is capable of capturing lights in…

Haida 10 Stops Neutral Density Filter Review

INTRODUCTION THE BLACK GLASS Welcome to my review on the Haida 10 stops ND filter. ND filters have always been a staple to landscape photographers. While the “usual suspects” have always been 1 to 3 stops ND filters, some use a very dark ND filter of 10 stops and above for long exposures, even in broad daylight. This is what I call it “the black glass”, an interesting filter that allows slow shutter speed in daylight. Why would we want slow shutter speed in daylight? Well, flowing clouds, silky smooth waters and motion blur.…

Nikon 16-35mm f/4G ED VR Review

INTRODUCTION THE BIRTH OF ANOTHER KING? Welcome to my Nikon 16-35mm f/4 G lens review. In 2007, Nikon released a beast called 14-24mm f/2.8 into the wild. It is sharp, crisp, solid, and has little distortion at 14mm. It is an excellent all round lens, and people had no qualms crowning it the king of ultra wide lens. A few years later in 2010, Nikon released another ultra wide, the 16-35mm f/4 lens. However, it is not meant to replace the king, but to be the successor of 17-35mm f/2.8. Still, this lens…

Godox Witstro AD360 Review

INTRODUCTION FLASH OR STROBE? Welcome, to my Godox Witstro AD360 review – a confusing gadget. While Godox brands it as a flash, it uses an external battery pack and a bulb. It also packs the power of a strobe, when it is using the standard hotshoe mount. Flash, strobe or both? You decide. This is one interesting flash strobe thing that I have used for over a year now. It combines both the portability of a flash, and the power of a strobe. Very affordable too. If you hunt for…
