My Experience with Peak Design Lifetime Warranty
I have a Peak Design Slide Lite strap which I have owned for over four years. This strap has served me well over these past years and I have been happy with it. In the last few months I noticed that the rubber surface of the strap started to melt away and was rubbing off on clothes and even my bag when the camera was stored in it. So when I was looking to buy a new replacement strap on their website, I noticed on the bottom of the site, they mentioned that their products have Lifetime Warranty. I was like what, really? Who offers Lifetime Warranty? Apple? Samsung? Nike? No one!! Even if a...

Luminar 4 AI Sky Replacement
Skylum Software are going to release a brand new feature with the release of Luminar 4 which is their AI powered Sky Replacement. If you have like me photos that are nice but missing the dramatic sky or some gorgeous fluffy clouds that will make the photo from nice to awesome then this is going to blow your mind.

But that was always tedious and never looked quite right as the overall temperature or colour cast of the image may not blend...

How to make the Sky Pop in Lightroom?
Having been using Lightroom Classic for many years now, you start to get a sense of how powerful the different components are. But more importantly knowing what the different components or modules do, lets you find innovative ways to use them.
This is one of the techniques I’ve figured out through experimentation and work 90% of the time on most landscape photos. So let’s get started with this method.
7 Reasons Why I Don’t Regret Moving to Samsung
I want to share with you something that I did a few months ago. About six months ago actually I switched over to the Samsung Note 9 after having used a Apple iPhone for about 8+ years and I just want to share my thoughts and my experience so far on this transition after 6 months. First question obviously you might be wondering "do I have any regrets?" and the answer is NO, I certainly don't have any regrets moving over to an Android phone system. I'm actually a techie at heart, so I like technology and moving over to this Samsung and Android operating system essentially, was like discovering...
Why I’m now using Capture One Pro for FUJIFILM Raw Files over Lightroom?
Today I want to talk to you about Capture One Pro that's something that I have started using with my Fujifilm cameras so with the X-T2 and the X-T3 and I've also got a ton of photos from X-T1 which I have sold off but I still have those photos on my computer so why did I decide to go back to Capture One. Even though in my previous videos about Capture One I've said that it's not for me actually more and more I went back to it because I saw a lot of people commenting and saying that this is great for Fujifilm RAW images and the RAW files they look much nicer than in Lightroom Classic so...
