In out last post, we covered some terminology and tips on taking photos in water. In this article, we'll cover camera settings.
It is a hard life, but we took it upon ourselves to take off to a beautiful tropical location so we can help you get great vacation photos.
Our goal is to help you find out which phone or camera is best for your vacation photos, with particular focus on the feature that attracts much of the attention . . . taking them into the water — many without the necessity of additional waterproof protection....
For some - including our nation's active duty service members serving abroad or otherwise away from home - this holiday season can be bittersweet.
Part of the joy of the holiday season is gathering the entire family together to share good food, gifts and fond remembrances of the year that is coming to a close.
You traveled how far and spent how much on your vacation?
On location in Grand Cayman, we’re creating a one-stop information source for cell phones through point and shoot cameras that have both topside and underwater photo capabilities.
As you dig into your personal cache of treasured holiday memories, here are a few ways you can bring the spirit of Christmas to life using old photos.
As Charles Dickens showed us in his classic novella A Christmas Carol, reflecting on memories of holidays past can help guide us on our path to creating joyful memories in our present and future. Whether it's looking back on the Christmastime of our youth, exploring the holidays of our parents and grandparents, or even reliving the celebrations of a bygone era, photos are the gateway to the spirit of Christmas past.
Nov. 11 is a day that we reflect and give thanks for our brave military heroes.
Every year on Nov. 11, millions of people across the U.S. take time to reflect and give thanks to the countless Americans over the centuries who have fought bravely for our country in times of war, kept the peace, and engaged in humanitarian efforts as well. At Vivid-Pix, the activity to remember and honor our military heroes has particular significance: CEO Rick Voight is father to an active-duty daughter, and as a company, we take the greatest pride in supporting veterans' service organizations. Part of this includes volunteering and donating to the Patriots for Disabled Divers organization, a group of volunteers who work with scuba diving centers and the Professional Association of Diving Instructors to help physically and psychologically affected patriots when they come home.
Low light can present a serious challenge for even the most seasoned photographers.
Low light can present a serious challenge for even the most seasoned photographers. Light is the most important part of how we perceive images and all photography involves capturing the light reflecting off of a physical object.

The memories of the fun we had are what can help get through some of the chilly days to come
The memories of the fun we had can help us get through some of the chilly days to come. We've all seen when our social media feeds fill up with people posting images of fun in the sun on their vacations.
Did you take some time this summer to visit some exotic locale? How about a relaxing tropical cruise? Or what about a trip to a famous theme park? Documenting and sharing trips and summer happenings can be a great way to help connect with friends and family over your travels, but be careful: Experts say that "oversharing" pictures can have some unintended consequences.
I believe that anyone has the ability to learn how to take exceptional pictures. Use these tips to learn how!
Whether you're capturing moments on vacation or at a holiday party, everyone can harness today's tools and equipment to take incredible pictures. Here is some invaluable wisdom on that matter:
Sometimes you don’t know how what you’re missing until it’s gone.
That might sound like something out of the diary of a scorned lover, but what I am referring to is trees. Growing up in Sacramento, California, trees were not just something you saw at the local park or nature reserve. Topiaries lined the sidewalks of downtown streets and filled front yards, backyards, shopping malls - you name it! In fact, someone did name Sacramento the “City of Trees” because of the fact that it contains the most per capita (that’s per person), in the entire world. There’s even a highway-side water tower proclaiming this namesake.
For Father’s Day this year, I decided to put a digital spin on an analog favorite and retouch some old photographs of my family. Since my dad still has a flip phone, using Instagram or Snapchat filters were out of the question. For this task, I used Vivid-Pix’s RESTORE software to correct and freshen up these dusty memories.
"RAW, RAW, RAW!…that’s the spirit!” I hear this all the time from a number of folks who shoot RAW with their cameras.
So let’s talk about image formats. And by "talk,” I really mean converse. I’d like to hear what you think. Note that I am at least vaguely aware I don’t know everything.
We’re pleased to begin providing articles on improving your Restoration/Throwback images. We’re also pleased to be working with Rachel LaCour-Niesen of www.SaveFamilyPhotos.com / #savefamilyphotos.
The below “conversation” begins this collaboration with a topic that is near and dear to all of our hearts – the connection to our past that photography provides. Both the images and the stories they suggest allow us to be a little closer to those no longer with us.
