This month’s column marks a special anniversary since this column, originally called Website of the Month, was originally launched in July 1999. In a much more recent column, I mentioned not hearing from Shutterbug readers about their own websites and since then the dam burst and I’ve been flooded by e-mail. Thanks to all of you who took the time to write. Working through all those e-mail messages takes time but for this month I’ve selected four reader sites that are “submitted for your approval,” as the late Rod Serling often said. Look for more readers’ sites to appear on a regular basis as well as a photographer’s blog of the month, which started unofficially last month.

I’m spending the next few days working with Tim Fiedler (www.dracophoto.com) on the latest incarnation of my how-to blog (www.joefaraceblogs.com). This new version features a WordPress (http://wordpress.org) structure and theme. WordPress originally started as a free blogging system but soon evolved into a full content management system, including access to thousands of plug-ins, widgets, and themes. In January, my blog was restructured to feature a different topic for each day and since this issue’s theme is Travel & Location Photography be sure to check in on Tuesday. There are subjects for the rest of the week, too, including Macro Monday, Landscape Wednesday, Automobile Thursday, and Portrait & Glamour Friday.

I only get to be in touch with you once a month through this column and Digital Innovations, but if you want more frequent reports, you can follow me on Twitter (www.twitter.com/joefarace) for daily updates on what’s new in digital imaging along with a dash of silliness. What’s more, my how-to blog (www.joefaraceblogs.com) has been restructured to feature a different topic each day of the week, such as Macro Monday, Travel Tuesday, and because I ran out of alliterations, Landscape Wednesday, Automobile Thursday, and Portraits and Glamour Friday.

“It is pleasant to have been to a place the way a river went.”—Henry David Thoreau

In recent months I’ve devoted this column to various themes and this month have expanded that concept to include geography. All of the photographers featured this month are located in Montana, the Big Sky state, which I think has some of the most spectacular scenery here in the lower forty-eight, as their...

“Fine art and pizza delivery, what we do falls neatly in between!”—David Letterman

Fine art photography has a special place in my heart since I started photographic studies at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Years later when Mary and I opened our Colorado studio its tag line was “for the art of photography,” but I’m not sure how much art we practiced in those early...

“The ink is black… The world is black, the world is white…”—David Arkin for Three Dog Night

Because it pays homage to a long tradition in photography, this black-and-white-themed issue has always been one of my favorites. That’s why I decided to devote this month’s column to photographers who capture monochrome images and, like photography...

“You just say the words and we’ll beat the birds down to Acapulco Bay…”—Sammy Cahn & Jimmy Van Heusen

One suggestion that I often make to workshop attendees is that they can always improve the impact of their photographs by simply changing their point of view. When space and conditions permit, I suggest using a ladder because it gives you the ability to...

“Never say never, for if you live long enough, chances are you will not be able to abide by its restrictions.”—Gloria Swanson

In February I closed my blog and considered closing my Facebook and Flickr pages. Times change though, and several of my colleagues encouraged me to alter those plans, and if there’s anything more wonderful about the web it’s that...

“Photography as a fad is well-nigh on its last legs, thanks principally to the bicycle craze.”—Alfred Stieglitz (1897)

In Brian Auer’s “10 Things I Hate About Film” (http://blog.epicedits.com/2008/07/15/10-things-i-hate-about-film) he states, “Film is a...

“One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don’t know.”—Groucho Marx, Animal Crackers

The movie set photographer is one of the unsung heroes of a motion picture camera team. It’s the still photographer’s job to capture on-set images that document the production that will later be used to promote the film. Lest you think...

“Inner space is so much more interesting, because outer space is so empty.”—Theodore Sturgeon

In a variation of that famous computer game “Where in the World is Joe Farace,” my dream of looking out the window and seeing saguaros instead of snow banks was recently shattered by events beyond my control. So where am I as you read this today? I’m hoping...

“The review in the paper said, ‘the aesthetic subtext of his work is the systematic exposure of artistic pretension.’ I thought I was just taking pictures.”—Elmore Leonard

My Flickr page (www.flickr.com/photos/joefarace) contains images I’m currently shooting, some of which are rounded...

“The computing field is always in need of new clichés.”—Alan Perlis

If you haven’t signed up to follow me on Twitter (www.twitter.com/joefarace) at least take a peek to see what you’re missing, such as behind-the-scenes photos of images being shot for Shutterbug reviews. I’m using...

“Living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.” —John Lennon

I want to bring readers up-to-date on how online changes mentioned in the February 2010 column are proceeding: my blog is on hiatus, probably never to return, but I’m continuing my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/joe.farace)...

“The gift of real love is having someone who’ll go the distance with you. Someone who, when the wedding day limo breaks down, is willing to share a seat on the bus.”—Oprah Winfrey

The first wedding I remember attending was my Aunt Rose’s when I was just a cute (I know, it’s hard to imagine) 7-year-old who got drafted into being ring bearer. A few...
