Even more bizarrely, it was the Federal government that had sent him there, to photograph for history the...

Recently I've begun to look at things differently. As a working commercial photographer, much of my work consists of really tack-sharp images. While I've always worked with foreground and background areas that may be out of focus, the...

Ask most photographers what lenses they would like to add to their outfits, and the first thing they start talking about is focal length: one wants an ultra-wide, another, a fast tele for sports photography, and so forth.

Regardless of the type of equipment that we use, image blur caused by hand and body motion is one of the principal causes of unsatisfactory photos. It's especially difficult to make razor-sharp images when shooting with a handheld camera in low light...

If you recall our review of the Lexar 4GB CompactFlash card in the November, 2003, issue of Shutterbug, we went to great lengths to explain why some cameras (at least at that time) couldn't accept the card, or at least couldn't deliver the 4GB capacity. It all has to do with FAT 16...
