Did you ever pick up your camera and think your eyes had suddenly gotten worse? In photography, there's good blur—and there's bad blur. When your diopter isn't calibrated correctly, it's bad blur. This can lead to your shooting photos that aren't in focus, because what you're seeing through the viewfinder is not exactly what the camera is seeing. Here are ways to remedy this problem.

A few weeks back, I was exploring a rock formation near the Little Colorado River. I found a number of petroglyphs. It occurred to me that almost all the petroglyphs and ruins I've encountered in the Southwest were near rivers or streams. The ancient desert people had compelling practical reasons for living near water. I suspect, though, that they also enjoyed simply looking at it.

I love to include water in my photographs. Judging by what I see on photography forums, I'm not alone. Water can significantly improve a photographic composition.  It's worth considering why.

Beauty Dishes are light modifiers that take your light source, bounce the output against an internal reflector, and then spread that light out via the inside of a white dish. The result is beautiful soft light that is similar to a softbox. Beauty Dishes are more versatile than that though, depending on how you place them or modify them. But what if you want to use your beauty dish with your existing on-camera strobes? Here are two methods how to do this.

Many people want to get started in home portraiture, but don't know where to begin. Besides studying composition, lenses, and posing, one must acquire a working knowledge of the basics of lighting.

For those of you that are scared of using external lighting, here is a quick introductory guide to help remove some of those fears.

A polarizer might be the most versatile filter around, and it's value extends well beyond deepening a blue sky. In fact, a key polarizer function in the digital age is to minimize the glare on reflective surfaces so that the natural color is revealed. This filter should be in every outdoor photographer's camera bag or photo pack!

Separated at Birth was a popular column in the 1980s magazine, Spy, which paired photos of celebrities in uncanny ways. But people’s faces have no monopoly on similitude. A product may also bear a striking resemblance to something entirely unrelated. As you browse through the hundreds of thousands of items offered by B&H, it’s easy to imagine what might have motivated a particular product designer. Here are some suggestions, with the actual product on the left and its possible inspiration on the right.

One way to white balance an image in Lightroom 3 is to find what is called Middle Gray, using the white balancing dropper tool. When you hover over certain parts of the image, the RGB levels appear, and one of the best methods is to make sure that all of them are around 50%. Typically, this happens in the middle gray area. The following white balancing procedure transpired when I was searching through my archive for photos to use for another BHInsights blog post.

When I was a communications student back in college, the first thing I said when my professor put professional gear in front of me was, "Oooooooo, toys!" That is how many students at the New York Film Academy reacted recently when the B&H EDU Advantage Team visited to show the future filmmakers some tools of the trade.
