  • Four Faves from 2017

    (Photos and text by Matt Cashore, University of Notre Dame)

    I do a thing on my Twitter account (@mattcashore) called #FourFaves. At the end of each month or after certain big events I tweet four images which to me represent that event or time. In that spirit and, uh, lacking any other content to publish, here are four mini-reviews of things I enjoyed in 2017:

    1. TSA Pre-Check

  • Sizing 'em Up

    Photos and text by Matt Cashore, University of Notre Dame

    Last May, after the usual madness of spring had died down, I found myself with some idle time and--being the nerd that I am--I decided to try an experiment: I believe that just as a bigger negative generally made a better print, a bigger digital sensor generally makes a better photo.  But I'd never actually tested that.  Between ND-owned and personal gear, I had quite assortment of sensors: Digital medium format, full-frame, APS-C crop sensor, as well as the tiny sensor in the Mavic Pro drone.  Time to play mythbuster!

  • Saturdays in the Big House

    I’ve been a member of the University Photographers’ Association since 1994 and this organization has provided me with education, friendship and support. My school, Ferris State University, has also supported me financially every year to attend the Technical Symposium because they can see the value of this important educational opportunity.

  • Speed Up Your Downloads

    by Ken Bennett, Wake Forest University

    One of the most frustrating aspects of shooting a big event has always been trying to download many gigabytes of photos to my laptop, especially on deadline. I had several USB-3 card readers, and individually they were pretty fast, but using more than one would slow down the entire system. For our last commencement ceremony, it took more than thirty minutes to get all the photos onto my computer before I could begin editing.
