The Best 360-Degree Camera

Here’s something a long time coming. I’m thrilled to announce that I have a new guide at The Wirecutter: The Best 360-Degree Camera. This is by far one of the most interesting projects I’ve done. 360-degree cameras capture the entire sphere around the photographer, in stills or video, which is great for getting a better ...

Following up my appearance in Adobe Create with tips for holiday low-light shooting, I’m happy to share… another tip for low-light shooting!

Holiday Gift Idea: Stuffie Stickers

Kids love stickers. When my daughter was a toddler, we gave her pages and pages of stickers to play with—many of which ended up on the legs of an old table.

Trinidad State Beach HDR from Google Photos

Last night, the Google Photos Assistant popped up this HDR made from bracketed shots from last year. Google Photos scans through the photos you’ve uploaded and looks for brackets with varying exposures (among other things) and automatically creates HDRs out of them. I don’t know why it waited a year and a half to process ...

Woods

No surprise, I’m depressed by the election result and think it portends terrible things for our country. There’s work to be done, art to be made, and a million tiny positive things we can do that will add up to repel darkness and hatred. “But the thing that got me through that moment, and any ...

I dropped her and my wife off, then headed to Sunset Hill Park, a little grassy overlook that’s aptly named. I also took this opportunity to set up a 360-degree camera (the 360fly ...

Valley of Light

My wife and I spent the weekend near Leavenworth, Washington at a cozy cabin with this as the view. Although I didn’t know if there would be much of a sunset the first night, the sun shone horizontally down a nearby valley for a wonderful show. Having a glass of wine at hand didn’t hurt, ...

Sunflower Sunset

Usually when I visit my mom at the farm, I take it real easy. And I certainly did that on this week’s visit. But I also told myself I would try to do some photographing while here. One evening, my mom and I headed to a field of sunflowers in time to catch the sunset. ...

Cherry Blossoms at UW 2016

With scheduling and the big wind storm that ripped through the area last week, I figured I’d missed my opportunity to go to the University of Washington and enjoy the annual cherry blossom bloom. However, those hearty trees held on, and my family and I were treated to a vibrant display one late afternoon. It ...
