Breaking the MMA Lens – A new venture

I have been away from writing my column for some time. MMA Crossfire Vault – Breaking the MMA Lens archives  Although I’m still photographing MMA events, my time has been limited due to a new venture. Over the past nine months or so, I’ve gotten into movie production as a director. My company Tin Mirror Productions has produced a short film “Quality Control,” which has received very good reviews. We are now in production of our second film, a full length feature entitled “Three Doors from Paradise.” Although directing movies is quite different from photography, there are some similarities....

Breaking the MMA Lens – Going mirrorless

  I’ve gone totally mirrorless. That’s in my camera selection; I still occasionally look in a mirror when grooming myself. However, I no longer use Digital Single-Lens Reflex Cameras (DSLR). DSLR’s have a mirror inside them that flips up and down so you can see through the lens when you look through the eye piece. I am now using only cameras that do not use a mirror.

This is Part Three in the series “3 Things to Know.” So far we’ve gone over shutter speed, or the time the shutter is open. Then we talked about aperture, how much the shutter opens. The third thing we’re talking about is ISO or how sensitive the camera sensor is to light. ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization, but who really cares. Old film cameras used to call this ASA (American Standards Association). The higher the ISO number the more sensitive the camera sensor is to light. So, you don’t have to keep the shutter open as long...
