Indispensable Tools For The Traveling Photographer – PictureCorrect: "When you’re on the road or overseas, there are things you want in your gear bag you might not need to drag around with you close to home. Besides a backup camera or spare camera body, there are a few tools that have saved a shoot on more than one occasion for me."

Diopter Lenses: Understanding How They Relate to Photography – PictureCorrect: "As photographers, we want to show ordinary things in an extraordinary angle. And what best way to do this but to zoom in and magnify parts and bring the smallest objects into literally larger than life sizes. Getting the perfect macro shot of a subject is definitely a photographer’s ultimate dream. But macro lenses can be pricy and reverse-lens photography can be a taxing job. This is where diopters save the day."

Focusing Quick Tip: Single Point AF Methods: "One of the biggest leaps towards tack sharp images you can take is using single point auto focus to hone in on your subject and nail the shot. Using the automatic grid focus system can sometimes be like throwing a handful of darts and hoping to hit the bullseye, especially when shooting at an extremely shallow depth of field like f/1.4. In fact at f/1.4, if you’re subject is 5 feet away and you’re shooting with a 50mm prime, your depth of field is only 0.09 feet! Do you want to leave .09 feet up to a handfull of focus points? No, I didn’t think so!"
