The Art of Photography


My name is Ted Forbes and I make videos about photography. I’ve been making photographs most of my life and I have a tremendously deep passion for photography that I want to share with you on YouTube. 
The Art of Photography is my channel and I produce photography videos to provide a 360 degree look into the world of making images. Lets do this together!
I make videos covering famous photographers, photography techniques, composition, the history of photography and more.
I also have a strong community of photographers who watch the show and we frequently do social media challenges for photographers to submit their own work. I feature the best and most interesting on the show when we do these so come check it out and get involved!

    Special thanks to B&H for lending me the G7 and the GX85 for review. The Panasonic G7 in many ways is like its sister camera the GX85. They share the same sensor except the G7 has the antialiasing filter where the GX85 does not. The biggest difference is

    I have no affiliation with Sony other than that I spend my own money on their cameras. I think they offer the best quality available at the moment and this is why I'm willing to put up with all the "gotchas". I've owned the NEX5, NEX6, NEX7, a5100 and now
