Sports Illustrated Fires all photographers. Source: https://nppa.org/news/sports-illustrated-lays-all-staff-photographers

6 Full Time Staff photographers laid off including Robert Beck. What SI had was this consistent look and now that may vanish. Chicago Sun Times made headlines a few years firing all 29 photogs- they since hired a four back and emphasize good iPhone skills with their reporters.

Apple PHOTOS delayed?

Reader Questions:
What is dependent on camera vs lens Shutter speed and ISO are camera dependent. Aperture is lens dependent and focus is a mix of camera and lens. The camera is the brains but the speed of the lens motors can affect focus.

 Happy almost Friday... I had typed "Happy Friday" before I realized it is still just Thursday :/ I am sitting in a hotel room just a short walk from all that Washington DC offers. We start a #mckaylive photo tour tonight and will spend the next week photographing in the region. I grew up about an hour from here and remember an 8th grade field trip where I got soaked running through all the sprinklers on the National Mall and later sat in an IMAX film and froze to death :) #geniuskid Have you been to Washington DC? What's your favorite museum/monument or activity here? This photo is from Sunday evening sunset over Puget Sound - Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND AND new Horizon filter (check my instagram stories for a closer look at this filter) This image is actually a composite - a 2 minute exposure for the sky and a shorter 1/6 of a second exposure for the water.
