One way to white balance an image in Lightroom 3 is to find what is called Middle Gray, using the white balancing dropper tool. When you hover over certain parts of the image, the RGB levels appear, and one of the best methods is to make sure that all of them are around 50%. Typically, this happens in the middle gray area. The following white balancing procedure transpired when I was searching through my archive for photos to use for another BHInsights blog post.

When I was a communications student back in college, the first thing I said when my professor put professional gear in front of me was, "Oooooooo, toys!" That is how many students at the New York Film Academy reacted recently when the B&H EDU Advantage Team visited to show the future filmmakers some tools of the trade.

We should begin this treatise by clearly stating that the Sunny 16 rule is nothing new, and if anything it’s a formula that’s been kicking around since the early days of picture taking. It’s also worth noting that the Sunny 16 rule has held true through every technological breakthrough from tinplates straight through modern-day digital imaging. It held true way back then and it holds true today....

Photographs have no depth. They're two-dimensional facsimiles of a three-dimensional world.

But photographers, like magicians, deal in illusion. If we understand what creates the illusion of depth in a photograph and how to enhance that illusion, we can make our images more believable.

The three-dimensional images captured by a Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 Digital Camera are best appreciated when the camera is attached by HDMI cable to a 3D TV viewed with LCD shutter glasses, but what if you want to see the pictures on a computer while you’re wearing anaglyphic glasses?

Super zooms, a breed of cameras that bridge the gap between pocket sized point-and-shoot digicams and far more able DSLRs, have a lot going for them if your idea of the perfect camera is one that offers a ridiculously broad focal range, pro-style functionality with a comfortable form factor that’s small enough (3.3 x 4.6 x 4.1”) and light enough (17.5 oz) to pack along no matter where you’re going.

Setting the white balance of your camera correctly basically boils down to a couple-or-three clicks through your camera’s set-up menu and a few moments of your time. Depending on your needs or mindset, you can adjust your camera’s WB settings by dialing in a specific Kelvin rating (°K) or by adjusting the Scene Mode.

If you take a lot of pictures or shoot a lot of video, there will come a time when you will have to use your camera in the rain, though probably not by choice. Perhaps you’ll be on an assignment that can’t be rescheduled, or maybe touring an attraction that you won’t be revisiting. Mother Nature doesn’t plan the weather around your schedule, so it’s going to be raining.

Medical photography often involves taking pictures of small, hard-to-access subject matter, most often in equally small and hard-to-access places. Add to the equation the subject matter of these pictures is usually inside a living, breathing person (or animal) and suddenly you realize how precise and demanding this specialized slice of the photo market can be.

Did you know that we sell Opera Glasses? We often speak about the more popular items here at the store (like cameras), but what need would you have for Opera Glasses? Think of them as really nice-looking binoculars, with a fairly wide field of view. Some have very interesting features like a red light for reading Playbills up close, while others include handles. Why not take them to your local theater production, or to Broadway—if you're in NYC and paying the SuperStore a visit?

This is part of an on-going series showcasing items that you wouldn't typically associate with your average camera store. But then again, we're not your typical camera store. You can take a look at some of our previous postings on clothespins, game show buzzers, Jellyfish Effect LED lights, breakaway beer bottles, speakers for pools and loads more.
