This article is written by Andrew S. Gibson, the author of Square. Today I’d like to draw your attention to an area of composition that you might not have given much thought to: aspect ratio. Aspect ratio is the term used to describe the dimensions of an image by comparing the width to the height …
Photographer and videographer Roger Ballen’s work is dark, surreal, and downright creepy. And there are many people out there who would consider it art. But what about your work? Are you a photographer or an artist?

An aperture set at f/2 is twice as big as one set at f/2.8 and four times larger than f/4. What’s Pi got to do with f/stops, and why do we use such a seemingly arbitrary numbering system? Continue reading to learn the answers to these and a few more arcane aperture facts. Exposure is controlled by adjusting the aperture of the lens and speed of the camera’s shutter. We all know this. If this is new to you, think of the aperture as a window and the shutter speed as the amount of time that window is held open.

I will reserve any comments about image quality till after I run it through a proper shoot but all-in-all, I’m happy and welcome all the improvements implemented on the X-E2.

Also, the great guys at Vanguard and Phottix Philippines sent over some awesome stuff that I will be showing you in the next few days and I will be working them along with X-E2 as I head to the land of BB cream and Kimchi in a hours from postings this......

Adobe axed Picture Package quite a long time ago but it could be easily made to work with Photoshop CS5. For a time there I also had it running with Photoshop CS6 until an update to CS6 permanently knocked it out.
