The Best Computer for Photo Editing

I see this all the time. I need to get a new computer, but I don’t know where to start. So what is my advice on buying a computer for photo editing? When it comes to buying a computer for photo editing, there’s A LOT to consider. One of the easier choices is simply whether to get a desktop or laptop. That will depend on your lifestyle.

January Plus Critiques recap

We had some great (and unique) submissions for 2020’s first Plus critiques session. The video has been posted and can be viewed by clicking on the thumbnail above.

Photos of the month

Our friends at Lume Cube donated three of their new Lume Cube 2.0 LED lights (which Hudson and I love, and are part of our essential kit) as prizes for January’s critiques. We chose our two favorite photos from the group, shown below, and drew one random name from the list of all contributors this month. Let’s take a look:

Flowing Lights, by Christian Riedl

Christian Riedl has shown some beautiful work in the Plus galleries, and this month he wowed us with an unusual — and mesmerizing — handheld, long-exposure shot taken on a moving escalator. This is one of those photos that just captivates the viewer. At first glance, there’s a bit of “how did he do that?”, but that lessens when you start studying the composition, with its strong lines, ghostly subject (reflected not once, but twice!), and stark coloring. It is not a conventional shot in the least, which makes it all the more impressive. Excellent work, Christian.

January Plus critiques open, with prizes!

We hope everyone had a safe, happy and productive end to 2019, and that your photographic juices are recharged and ready for the new year.

The January 2020 critiques will open this evening, January 7, and we’re going to open the year with a special theme. We’d like you to go through your 2019 work, and pick a photo that you believe is one of your best, but which you haven’t yet submitted to the critiques.
