WARNING - LASERS CAN DAMAGE CAMERA SENSORS

caution sensor issue
Story by Wayne Inverarity. My involvement with this cautionary tale began with good intentions and an advertisement in a local online marketplace. An individual was trying to sell a fairly high-end digital camera at a price that seemed too good to be true. The individual placing the ad pointed out that they had issues with the camera’s sensor. The seller suggested that someone with more expertise and time could possibly fix the camera or use it as a parts camera.

COLD WEATHER PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS

Story/Images by Jacquie Matechuk. Another early morning and I wake to the relentless nagging of an over-zealous iPhone basking in the soothing hum of a radiant heater in my hotel room. It’s Day 1 of the Winter XGames and the temperature is expected to flirt with freezing. Nothing exceptional until the evening hits and we fall to -20 Celsius. So, it’s time to plan accordingly.

(Story and images by Matt Jacques). Each year, the Porcupine Caribou herd embarks on one of the longest migrations of any land mammal on earth. From the northern reaches of the Yukon and Northwest Territories, they make their way to the relative safety of the Alaska’s coastal plain. This happens by late May, as they calve and nurse the next generation.

THE MILITARY ACCREDITATION

(Images and story by Chris TT Thombs). As it is Remembrance Day a lot of people start thinking about the military, and November 11th. I thought I would share some info, and thoughts about No. 44 - Military Life accreditation, “The Military Accreditation”. Why would I write a blog about this accreditation, and why does this accreditation matter to the regular members of PPOC? In my opinion military life is part of the Canadian story that needs to be documented. It also gives you a chance to educate yourself as a photographer by working towards getting the accreditation which will test you both as a photographer and as a project manager.

FOR THE LOVE OF MONSTERS


"Images and Story by Jeff McDonald". Halloween has always been a favourite time of year for me. I get it honestly though…my mom always went above and beyond when decorating for Halloween and our house was usually the spookiest on the block. Fast forward 30'ish years and my wife, daughter and I are carrying on the tradition, but via special effects makeup, body painting and photography.
