Skylum Luminar 4 – AI Sky Replacement

A Travel Photographer’s nemesis is the weather. Days with washed-out skies or even cloudless days can make images boring and bland.

Review – 3 Axis Camera Spirit Level

Review – 3 Axis Camera Spirit Level

People always ask us why we use these when most cameras now have great tools for keeping the camera level. We have been using them for many years attached to our hot-shoe and although initially, we used them only when the camera was mounted on a tripod we have found them to be very useful in other situations. There are many different models and can be found on eBay, Amazon or at your local camera shop.
