Here are a few of the inspirational stories, real-life examples and easy-to-understand tutorials that appeared in recent issues of InFocus Newsletter.

My Favorite Camera Settings and Why I Use them

The soft, rosy glow of evening light scatters across the Snake River and mingles with cool snowy shadows. Winter at the Grand Tetons is beautiful, and that beauty was not lost on Chip Philips when he composed this shot. Details ranging from dark blue shadows to glowing bright pink clouds harmonize together in images like this one.

The beauty of the scene is obvious. But how was Chip able to capture such a broad range of light without losing details in either the bright or dark areas of the scene?

5 Myths About Hyperfocal Distance

When we talk about hyperfocal distance with our students, we sometimes get a skeptical look or two… and we can understand why. After all, it is a difficult concept to understand. Over the years, it has moved into a theoretical realm. People often talk about it but they seldom use in practice. Jay Patel talks about few myths that may be responsible for creating that perception….and why they are wrong.

Why you should Watermark your Landscape Photos

When the image is finally finished (or close enough), you rush to share it with your friends. The viral nature of the Internet – and especially of social media – has made it possible for that to happen in mere moments. On the flip side, the Internet has also made it possible for your hard-sought images to be stolen and claimed by someone else. After all, who wouldn’t want their name on an image that took that much skill, devotion and passion to create?

How can you share your work with the masses and also safeguard yourself from the frustration of pirated work? Lace Anderson, a landscape photographer who is no stranger to these issues, has a practical solution: watermark your images. In this recent article, Lace makes her case for protecting and claiming your work.
