I’ve always been a strictly DIY print guy and have done my fair share of printing over the years, but I’ve recently seen some intriguing print presentations by friends and associates—on aluminum, bonded under acrylic glass, on textile or canvas—that I could never produce in my studio. As I researched the idea I decided it was time to check out a custom lab that could broaden my print options.

John Conn has photographed landscapes, landmarks, and the underwater world, but his passion for documentary storytelling has resulted in his most compelling images: apartheid-era South Africa, residents of a Bowery flophouse, patients in a cancer hospice, the subways of 1970s New York City, and, starting three years ago, the homeless of Manhattan.<

Long, long ago in a land far away, photo hobbyists often used yellow filters on their lenses when shooting black-and-white film. Monochrome film was a bit more sensitive to blue light back in those days, and that caused skies and clouds to blend and become an indistinguishable mess. For reasons we’ll see later, green filters were often used for portraits.

Cole Thompson is a refreshing voice in photography, speaking through the medium of black and white as he sees it. Self-taught, he seeks out the simple and intrinsic beauty in life and the world around him. For Thompson, shades of black, white, and gray are enough to define the most complex elements that surround us, even the nature of the universe.

There’s more to black-and-white photography than simply a lack of color. Maybe we wouldn’t feel this way if the first photographs were made in color but that didn’t happen and I grew up admiring the works of W. Eugene Smith and other photojournalists who photographed people at work, play, or being themselves in glorious black and white.

One of the better deals we saw at the recent PhotoPlus Expo show in New York City was a massive price drop on the Pentax 645Z medium format camera and on a complete 645Z “Starter Kit” that included three high quality lenses, accessories and an extended warranty. And now here’s the good news: the deal, which cuts $1,500 off the price of the 51-megapixel 645Z, has been extended, making digital medium format slightly more accessible to the masses.

Chances are if you take a poll of what photographers picked for their first telephoto lens, it would be the 300mm. For one thing, it’s a good choice for those starting out in wildlife or sports photography and, given the nature of millimeters, it’s relatively inexpensive as compared to the big guns like the 400, 500 or 600mm lenses.

Our previous video (see Camera Shutter Sounds Are Not All The Same And This Video Proves It) revealed that every camera make and model is capable of producing its own variety of unique sounds. This knowledge inspired photographer Benjamin Von Wong and Andrew Kesler—along with a few creative assistants—to experiment with and transform 14 Nikon cameras (provided by Nikon Professional Services Canada) into musical instruments and use them to create an amazing symphony of shutter and camera sounds.
