Wireless tethering is critical to our Architectural photography workflow. However on a recent photoshoot I needed to use a backup 6D instead of the usual 5D and was surprised when CamRanger refused to tether with it. From what I've experienced with CamRanger and knockoff (TPLink router hack) they're bulletproof and work with any Canon or Nikon camera. Not on this day of course... The solution turned out to be super simple but I wasn't able to find it mentioned anywhere online - so I'm posting it here in the hopes that future google'rs will find the answer they need.

The fabled "Tarzan House" is a 1920s abandoned ranch style home that's perched high above the 15 freeway with an amazing view of the valley & lake below. I've seen it from the freeway many times and had an opportunity to photograph it shortly before it was demolished in June 2015. Even in it's dilapidated state it's obvious this was an incredible home in its day - it's unfortunate it fell into such disrepair.

My favorite cloud storage provider made a lot of people really happy. Paid "Pro" users are now getting 1TB for $9.99/mo instead of the previously paltry 100GB. I'm no longer watching my Dropbox usage meter hover around 99.5% full all the time...

Several years ago I was fed up with the PC. I was tired of the inconsistent UX, the constant security updates & my heavy brick of a laptop. So I switched to the Mac. A sleek, relatively lightweight, 2010 Macbook Pro. My personal needs were all taken care of with the iLife / iWork suite and I loved the consistency of how it all worked together. Recently I switched back to the PC for my laptop needs - here's my take on what it was like switching back.

Ever had Photoshop stall when saving large files? I have. The first time was panic inducing and struck at the worst possible time. Fear not - there's a way to save your work without losing anything! 

I love cloud storage. Whether for personal or business use it's incredibly useful to be able to quickly sync files between computers, view images on a tablet or quickly send links to clients. With the falling prices of cloud storage from the big 4 cloud storage vendors (Dropbox, Google Drive, Box & Microsoft OneDrive) I thought I'd do a quick review of the services from the perspective of a professional digital artist. In a nutshell I want to see how fast I can upload/download, how easily I can send a link to the file/folder & what features are available that'd affect me.
