Though it need not be said, everything we post is as factually-accurate as we can make it. Grant’s background in journalism prevents him from glossing over much of anything.
We are doing this blog to share our experiences and, hopefully, make a little money on the side. That said, any review we post is based upon our experience and if we receive any compensation for going somewhere or staying somewhere, it will be noted.
Please see our review policy for additional information on how we do reviews.
Grant, who does the majority of the photography and all of the editing has a very strict policy: if color, as close to what we saw as possible. If black and white, nothing that couldn’t be done with standard color filters and darkroom work.
What that means:
- No funky filters for color work… a polarizer or neutral density filter and that’s it! That’s why we always post the #nofilter on our Instagram
- No replacement of elements… i.e. no taking a sky from one photo and putting it in a second photo
- The only things changed or eliminated from a photo are dust on the lens, lens flares or other problems with the camera that prevent the reader from seeing what we saw
- High dynamic range photos (a composite of images of a single subject taken at different exposures) might be used if the shot requires it to match what we see.
- If you have questions about a photo, we are more than happy to e-mail a low resolution example of the digital negative
