How Good is the DJI Mavic Pro 2 for Landscape Photography?

To be quite honest, it's been a while since I was really excited about drone photography. My first drone was the DJI Phantom 3 Professional which I loved but eventually replaced with the DJI Mavic Pro due to its smaller size and convenience of traveling with. The release of the DJI Mavic Air was an even better option and that became...

NiSi Landscape NC CPL Review for Landscape Photographers

NiCI Landscape NC CPL Review
A Circular Polarizer is an essential filter for landscape photographers. Yet, it's often a filter which is less talked about, mainly due to the extreme visual effects achieved with a Neutral Density filter. While a Circular Polarizer (CPL) won't give you the same extreme visual effects (such as long exposure photography), it's a filter that will make a huge difference...

MIOPS Mobile: A Useful Gadget for Photographers?

Miops Mobile Review
For the last few weeks, I've been testing the new Miops Mobile; a camera remote that connects to your phone. It's no secret that a remote shutter release is an important tool for landscape photographers who want razor sharp images.

NiSi S5: The Ultimate Filter Holder for Ultra-Wide Angle Lenses

NiSi S5 Field Test
The NiSi S5 is a filter holder I've been waiting a long time for. Even though there are several other 150mm filter systems available, including an older NiSi model, none of them have been able to grab my attention. This changed with the NiSi S5. Finally, they've released a system that makes most photographers using Ultra-Wide Angle lenses such as the Nikon...

Keeping my hands warm has been one of the bigger challenges during the last several winters but earlier this year I finally found a solution - and my new favorite gloves for landscape photography.

Is This the Only Graduated ND Filter You Need?

NiSi Medium Graduated Filter Review
Graduated Neutral Density Filters have become one of my favorite accessories for landscape photography and it's something I always keep in my camera bag. The challenge with graduated filters, however, is that the transition often is too soft or too hard, making it difficult to find a proper use for them. If you're familiar with Graduated ND Filters you might...

Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop and Capture One are the most common softwares to be mentioned when talking about photography and post processing. However, in recent years, more softwares have been introduced and many of them are equally as powerful as those mentioned above. Picktorial is one of these editors and I've had the pleasure of testing their 3.0 Beta version (and...

The Filter That Removes Light Pollution

Nisi Natural Night
Light pollution is a common problem amongst nightscape photographers. Either it's within a city or out in nature, it has the potential to make an image less appealing. Every now and then an image can benefit from the orange color cast but this is rarely the case. NiSi Filters recently announced their latest addition to their family; the Natural Night filter,...
