SMART GUY

The debut of self-adjusting studio lights.

We often describe studio lighting with words like «bright» or «rugged.» Now, we frequently find ourselves adding the word «smart.»

Quantum Instruments’ most recent LED ring lights, the Omicron OM3 and OM4 ($698 and $689, street), feature Auto Lighting Track (ALT). With the help of a built-in lightmeter, ALT dims or brightens Omicron output as a subject moves toward or away from the light.

ALT does, however, noticeably expand a subject’s freedom

Canon’s new approach to AF on the imaging chip.

When Canon recently introduced its EOS 70D to the press, what could have been simply an update to the popular but aging 60D turned into an intriguing glimpse of new sensor technology. Due in stores in September, it may not make much difference to still photographers who use the optical viewfinder (they’ll find more to love elsewhere), but video shooters—or anyone using live view—are likely to benefit.

Besides upping the 70D’s pixel count to 20.2MP from 18MP, boosting the top ISO up a stop to 25,600, and raising the burst rate

Capture a fantastic backlit macro photo.

Learn how to shoot nature’s fascinating level of detail by getting creative with light.

Macro photography involves shooting with your camera very close to your subject, and enables you to capture intricate details that you may not normally be able to see with the naked eye. If your macro subject is translucent, then you can capture even more detail by lighting it from behind.

Leaves, flower petals and even butterfly wings are all fantastic subjects for practising this technique, as the light shining through them will help their tiny patterns to show up even more in your photos.

You could
