Don McCullin Knighted for His Services to Photography

“THE QUEEN has been graciously pleased to signify her intention of conferring the honour of Knighthood upon the undermentioned: Donald McCULLIN, C.B.E., Photojournalist. For services to Photography.”

The 81-year-old McCullin first began his photography career nearly 60 years ago, in 1959. Much of his word in that time has focused on war and the needy in society.

You can watch the amazing documentary about him on Netflix.

I’d love to take flight in a plane or helicopter one day just to get some amazing aerial photographs!

2 Months with the Fujifilm X100F

I still have the original x100. It’s a camera I hold onto dearly.

I’ve had a copy of the x100F since early November. During that time I kind of made it my go-to camera for just about anything and everything—from my more artistic professional shots, to travel, to basic family vacation images. This camera has been everywhere—from around my own home in Kentucky, to the Great Wall of China, to Disney World in Florida.

Adorama and Joe McNally Teams up to Show us Lighting for Portraits

During the month of November, each week they release a series of videos from day in portrait shooting. Together they cover Athletic Portraits, Strip Light Portraits, Window Light Portraits, and Environmental Portraits. These are just quick videos showing you the light set up and the final image. It’s more of an exploration of the complete process and detail of how and why the lightening is set up the way it is.
