Since purchasing the Olympus MC1.4x Teleconverter to couple with the Oly 40-150mm f/2.8 lens, I’ve been curious to see if the extra reach provided me by my Panasonic 100-300mm lens is really necessary. The 100-300 is a great lens in its own right, and for the price, provides an option that no other system can boast, so needless to say, I do think highly of it. That said, the 100-300 can soften up a bit on the long end (and to stop anyone who may suggest the Oly 75-300, I still feel the Lumix is the better overall lens and optically up to snuff, so, no) the question is, do I really get much from the extra reach?
Hi all! I’m now a contributing writer for the Alien Skin website via their blog (read HERE), and this article was my first published tutorial showcasing a simple trick to add drama to any image. It is a very cool, very easy and arguably effective trick to use for just about any type of image that might benefit from a little contrast based depth and drama. I’ve employed this trick for as long as I’ve been using Exposure which has to be going on about 6 years now, and it is one of my go to’s whenever I want a bit more edge in my images.
Hi All! Many of you are familiar with the Garda wrist straps, which I’ve been selling for well over a year now. For the last few months, I’ve been working on some new straps, using a completely different, high end nautical line. A different finish, a different look, and a completely new design.
Still entirely hand built and guaranteed to last. C’mon in to see more about the Cascade and to see how to order one.

Rounding out our Exposure Trifecta is our ISO. We discussedAperture here, Shutter Speed hereand with ISO we finalize this three pronged, exposure equation.
Understanding when and how to manipulate your exposure might be a little tricky to fathom at first, but I’m hoping that after this series, you’ll have a very good grasp on how these three factors can be used to capture an image in any situation.
We’ll look not only at ISO specifically, but we’ll tie in all three and explain how, why and when to adjust them in concert to achieve proper exposure. C’mon in…
