Should you try out the Photos for Mac public beta?

Is Photos for Mac ready for its public closeup? Pretty close — but don't go in without a backup.

Apple released its first public beta of OS X 10.10.3 on Monday, and with it also comes the first public crack at Photos for Mac. The temptation to upgrade for people enrolled in Apple's public beta program is great, especially for those using iCloud Photo Library on your iOS device, but should you?

How to shoot great sports photography on your iPhone

You may not have a telephoto lens, but you can still take great sports photography with your iPhone — it's all about knowing the right tricks.

In addition to skating with Boston, I coach a couple of roller derby teams. One of the most important tools for me, as a coach, has become my iPhone: Taking video of practices and drills; breaking down skater stance in photographs; making notes for future strategy adjustments.

As a result, I've spent a lot of time using my iPhone as a sports camera, and I'm repeatedly surprised at just how well it does. Here are some of the tips I use to make sure I get good photos and videos of practices and games; whether you're shooting roller skating or another sport, hopefully they can help you out, too.

Confused about how to sync your Mac or Windows PC photos to your iPhone or iPad? We've got you covered.

Here's how to take fantastic macro shots on your iPhone

Macro photography allows you to see the world from a different perspective.

Whether you're shooting giant cereal pieces a la "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" or the petals of a flower, you can create fantastic scenes from otherwise ordinary objects. iPhone macro photography is especially exciting: Because your phone is so small, you can get close to objects you might otherwise have a harder time shooting with a DSLR. Here are some of my favorite tips for shooting macro photography on the iPhone 6!

How to take great winter photographs with your iPhone

If you haven't heard, there's currently a rather absurd amount of snow burying my city. I feel pretty lucky in that I don't have to regularly commute much farther from my bed to my desk, but that amount of snow can still drive someone a bit stir-crazy — even if they're used to working from home.

So, rather than give in to the depths of snowy despair, I decided to do something positive with the ridiculous mounds of white fluff outside my door: take some pictures.

Photos for OS X: One week later

Last Thursday Apple released the first developer beta for their all-new Photos for Mac app. A public beta will follow at some point, and the a public release this spring. In the meantime we've published a Photos for Mac FAQ and a Photos for Mac preview. It's still in beta, so everyone needs to adjust expectations accordingly, but it's also the future, and potentially one full of promise. So, one week later, we're following up with a few additional thoughts.

Photos for OS X isn't going to be a pro app — and that's okay

After the first developer beta of Photos was released last week along with OS X 10.10.3, I got a lot of questions about the app. Little questions, like "Can you still make books and cards?" (Yes.) But also big-picture questions. Is this the next generation of photo management? Will it be enough for prosumers? Do you think it can replace my aging professional workflow?

These are harder questions to answer, because, largely, your workflow is a very personal process. I can guess at what tools you might need, or file formats you want supported, but at the end of the day, only you can decide which features are must-haves and which omissions are deal-breakers.

But I can say one thing, definitively: Photos isn't designed to be a program for professional photography users. At least, not yet. Maybe not ever, but certainly not now.

What it is, however, is a wonderful entry point for new and experienced users alike who want to do more with their photographs. It may not have the power of the pro app — but that's rather the point.
