Expressions is an indispensable element of portrait photography. Capturing expressions gives an opportunity to portray human emotions on the photographic frame and adds liveliness to a photograph. Expression is an interplay of all the facial features reflecting (and depicting) various moods and thus adds dynamics to the photographs.

Apple has announced Aperture 3, which offers a number of improvements over Aperture 2, including Faces, Places and Brushes. Obviously, the big news for photographers is the ability to make local adjustments with the Brushes tool. Additionally, Aperture 3 allows you to import HD video from your DSLRs and even edit it make your own movie without ever leaving Aperture. It also includes the ability to easily export video files to Apple’s Final cut software.
We’ve certainly come a long way since the first SD card was offered at 8MB in 2000. Nowadays, a single file from a DSLR can reach 30+MB in size and SDHC capacities up to 16GB and 32GB are becoming more and more common in photographers’ camera bags. It won’t be long before we start seeing those 64GB and larger cards more frequently in our bags. As image sensor resolution and HD video options continue to grow, we are going to need more and more capacity to contain all of that content.
