The photography community is, on the whole, the most antagonistic, abusive, and destructive (on the Internet). OK, most people in the community are wonderful - but a small number of the community are making it a really toxic environment. We talk about the different types of toxicity we encounter, with the hope that identifying it will make it easier to handle. We talk about why people might be toxic, including mental illness and poor social skills. We also talk about how to make sure you're a supportive member of the community.

Many photographers love the Micro Four-thirds mount for its small size and big feature set... But, increasingly, full-frame mirrorless cameras are a similar size and produce undeniably superior results. With Canon and Nikon joining Sony in the full-frame mirrorless market, and Fuji creating value-oriented APS-C cameras, I think it’s inevitable that those lens mounts will lure most new photographers. Additionally, many existing Micro Four-Thirds photographers will be lured to competing camera systems because of the cleaner images, better low-light capabilities, and a wider selection of fast lenses. If nothing else, people think full-frame sensors always produce better images, even if that’s not always true.

The first round of the mirrorless wars are over - Canon released the EOS R, Nikon released the Z7 (and announced the Z6), Panasonic announced the S1 and S1R, and Fuji launched the X-T3. We were there at the events as the camera companies battled to win back the full-frame market from Sony. We think some of the camera companies did a great job, while others made some serious mistakes.

Nikon and Canon seem to be releasing full-frame cameras, and that changes EVERYTHING. Sony has had no competition for full frame mirrorless, can they survive a head-on fight against the two biggest camera makers? How will Panasonic, Olympus, and Fujifilm fare? And is Pentax even in the fight?

We talk about 5 steps to success that we just totally made up based on our own life experiences, so take it for what it's worth.

1: Define *your* success. What specific accomplishments will make you happy? Where do you want to be in life, for money, lifestyle, relationships, and leisure time? Which of those are you willing to give up?

2: Know yourself. Evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses; we all have a few.

3: Build a team. Surround yourself with people who compliment your skills. If you suck at something, find people who are good at that, and trust them to help you.

4: Make a 5-year plan. Know where you want to be in 5 years. Then, make smaller steps at 1-year, 6-months, 1 month, and TODAY. Yes, if you're going to be successful, it starts today. What are you going to do RIGHT NOW?

5: Re-evaluate and reset. One thing we can promise is that your plans won't go exactly as you hope. The world will change without your permission. Your team will fail you. You'll fail yourself. That's OK; you roll with those punches. It's OK to change your plan at any point.

If you feel like you've already found some success, congrats! We'd love to hear your success story in the comments (including challenges that you ran into along the way).

We explain Fair Use which allows people to use pictures for free under some conditions. Specifically, it provides exemptions for commentary, search engines, criticism, parody, news, research, and scholarship. While it's never black-and-white, courts make fair use judgment calls based on four criteria:

1) Purpose of use (such as commercial, nonprofit, or educational). Uses can be more than one of these, such as both commercial and educational. Being commercial doesn't prevent fair use, and being educational or nonprofit doesn't give you fair use under all conditions.

2) The nature of the copyrighted work. The more creative it is, the harder it is to claim it under fair use. For example, a strictly informational picture of a skyline would be easier to claim under fair use than a creative model photoshoot or light painting.

3) The amount of the copyrighted work that's used. If you only show a small portion of a video, for example, odds are you can claim Fair Use. If you show an entire movie, you probably can't claim Fair Use.

4) The effect on the market for the copyrighted work. If you publish a movie for free and that stops people from paying to see that movie, it's almost certainly not fair use. However, if using a copyrighted work doesn't reduce the value of the work commercially, then it's more likely to be fair use.

Even if you stay the same, the world won't. My dad had basically the same job his whole life. As a pro photographer or videographer in 2018, you won't have the same luxury. Our jobs change every year, and if you don't keep up, you probably won't get to keep your job. If you're wildly successful today, you'll probably still be doing well next year - but in five years, everything you've built could be gone. My advice: Get comfortable being uncomfortable. Keep one foot firmly grounded in what's working for you today, but move your other foot forward. Keep track of upcoming trends by staying close to young people and watching how they interact with photos and videos. Experiment, jump on the latest trends and have fun.

Canon has been the #1 camera manufacturer for decades, and they beat Nikon, Sony, Fuji, and all the others with leading-edge innovation. That seems to have changed in the last few years...but Chelsea has a theory that they're just charging up for the ultimate mirrorless camera. Is it true?
