Lightroom Black and White

Jared Polin September 15, 2010 5

Everybody loves black and white photos! There are many methods of tweaking a black and white photos. I went through a lot of them including the B&W panel, contrast, clarity & tone curve. There is one extra special method at the end so stick around to see the full details!

Nikon D7000 Preview

Jared Polin September 15, 2010 15

The Nikon D7000 is another step in the right direction for Nikon. They are taking video to the next level with each and every entry into the market as well as focusing on the more important Hi-ISO capability of the cameras. This camera pretty much puts the Nikon D300s out to pasture as it will take better quality images and much higher quality video. Of course this is all speculation based on a preview and we wont know for sure if it is better until I get to test one out.

FroVader Canon Reviews

Jared Polin September 14, 2010 11

This is for all of you Canon shooters who have been asking for more Canon lens and body reviews. I am starting to get access to more Canon glass care of Allen’s Camera 215.547.2841 to do reviews and sample shots for you. I am trying my best to learn the bodies so I can bring you more informed reviews.

To you Nikon guys you should still watch these videos just to see what the “Dark Side” has to offer. Just remember you should be able to get great images with either system, there are pluses and minus to both and it comes down to personal preference.

In this first video you will see two pieces of gear that you will find most pro’s are using. At 1:43 in this video you will see the very SPECIAL GUEST!!!
