(Continued after the Jump)

TRANSCRIPT:Here a few thoughts about the Nikon D3 versus the Nikon D4. I'm John Harrington. The Nikon D3 is a great camera. We in turn went from the D3 to the D3s and have used both of those cameras for a long period of time and we're exceedingly happy with it. We didn't necessarily see the need to bump up to the D4 at first blush. Our first considerations were, we're fine with the D3 D3s because we really just looked at just the file size bump. But, once we actually got a chance to put our hands on it to try it out some of the things like the high, even higher high ISO capabilities that the D4 had as well as the extra low light focusing capabilities really needed a no-brainer to pick up the D4. Now, that's not to say that we've gotten rid of the D3's and D3s', we still use those cameras. They're still great cameras, but when it comes to cameras and getting the best and using the best the D4 really is a definitely a worthwhile pickup.

TIPS60 – A Few Thoughts on choosing between the Nikon D4 to a D800

TRANSCRIPT:Here are a few thoughts on the Nikon D4 versus the Nikon D800. I'm John Harrington. We really like the Nikon D4, but truth be told, we really like the Nikon D800 as well. We actually got the D4 first and then decided well we'll get the D800 as well. We think that both cameras are two different tools that need to be in the same tool chest. If you need that extra megapixel and you're shooting under a controlled environment and you don't have to go up to those crazy high ISOs that the D4 can go to, the D800 is a great tool. We use it for magazine covers when were doing a lot of work with magazines. When we're trying to do advertising work, or were shooting tethered straight into the computer. A D800 as a great camera, but the D4 is awesome. We do not use D4 using, you know, continuous high you know maximum shutter frames per second, we're not that type of photographer, but the D4 is great. The file size is awesome the high ISO is just incredible. So as we're sitting here saying D4 vs D800 it really is both.

TIPS60 – Website Do's and Don'ts – Your Self Portrait

Here is another of our videos offering tips and inisights into the business of photography. a transcript of the video is included after the jump.

(Continued after the Jump)

TRANSCRIPT:Here a few thoughts on self-portraits on your website. Self portraits belong on your website, but really only in your bio page in your about me page. You need to have a self-portrait that's flattering, not one that shows you goofing off making silly faces or otherwise doing stupid things. You need to have a bio picture that has a nice expression. In other words you're a photographer you should be showing a bio picture that shows you attractively lit, not looking like an idiot and just generally needs to be a flattering picture. Not doing that, not having that, and not having any bio leads people to wonder whether or not you're someone they want to hire. People make a connection with the eyes in the face when they see a portrait photo on your website. To have a flattering have attractive bio picture lets people know that you're willing to put yourself out there visually and that that's what you do for a living is make great pictures and the great picture you make starts with yourself.
