Today is a HUGE day in Fro History

Jared Polin June 1, 2015 Comments Off on Today is a HUGE day in Fro History

Today marks the 5 Year Anniversary of FroKnowsPhoto.com. I officially launched the site on June 1st, 2010 with zero following and not much of an idea of wether or not it would work.

I honestly could not have imagined at the time that it would have grown into such a global brand. I owe each and every one of you a sincere thank you for helping me get to this point. Without your continued support over I would not be sitting here today.

The Canon 5Dsr QUALITY just BLEW ME AWAY

Jared Polin May 31, 2015 Comments Off on The Canon 5Dsr QUALITY just BLEW ME AWAY

I am just back from the Grand Canyon and had to share this photo taken with the Canon 5Dsr at 70mm with the Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II. This photo was taken at 5am as the sun was coming up over the Grand Canyon.

When I zoomed in 1:1 I was blown away at the quality of the image. My D4s doesn’t hold up nearly as well at 1:1 as this 5Dsr but that is to be expected.

When I zoomed in 3:1 I almost fell out of my chair. Just look at me go from full image to 3:1 to get a feel for how far away Todd actually was.

There will be plenty of more videos from the Grand Canyon in the months to come.

High School photographer “Threatened” with suspension for posting PHOTOS online

Jared Polin May 25, 2015 Comments Off on High School photographer “Threatened” with suspension for posting PHOTOS online

Anthony Mazur is a High School student in Texas who recently discovered his love for sports photography. He shoots for the schools yearbook, travels to games on his own dime and shares the photos on his personal flickr account. Or should I say “shared” the photos on his flcikr account.

Recently Anthony was called down the principals office where an administrator had his flickr page pulled up on the computer. He told Anthony he had to take the photos down and if he didn’t he would face an In School Suspension. Last night I had the chance to skype with Anthony at his home in Texas to get the full details of the story. Check that out above as well as my commentary on the entire situation.

“Long Exposure Photography” Challenge: 5 Min Portrait

Jared Polin May 22, 2015 Comments Off on “Long Exposure Photography” Challenge: 5 Min Portrait

The Challenge – Use the Canon 5D Mark III with Canon 11-24 F4 to capture Long Exposure images for a “5 Min Portrait” and “Real World Review”.

The catch this time is I personally have never shot these type of images before but I was up for the challenge. “Long Exposure Photography” does not have to be extremely complicated. Some people like to stack images and do a lot of work in post or capture images for an HDR. Click Here to see the FULL RES exports and more.
