Shutterbug readers got super artsy with this month’s Fine Art Photography assignment and the results were stunning. While it may be hard to precisely describe what fine art photography is, the 10 images we chose this month all struck us as being gallery-worthy. These shots display a firm vision, a great eye, a keen knowledge of forms, and, overall, an appreciation of the abstract beauty of the natural and man-made world.

Inkodye Photo Printing Kit: This creative kit allows you to use wet darkroom photography techniques to create unique works of art on fabric, wood (or nearly any material). Simply paint on the liquid, then put a negative (or any object) on top of it and put it in the sun. The UV (or sunlight) develops it so there's no need for a darkroom. This starter kit gets you set up with everything you need to make a print: blue, black & purple dyes, four blank negatives, a fabric swatch, step-by-step video instructions, a test negative and detergent to stop the developing. You can use negatives to print pictures or use small objects—like plants, feathers, coins, toys, paper cut outs—to create silhouettes. The kit has a retail value of $39.

I’ve worked with Adobe Photoshop since it was first introduced. While it wasn’t my favorite image editing software initially, Photoshop grew on me as its capabilities grew, and it has become my go-to editor outside Lightroom.

Earlier this year, we told you about a special Filmmaker's Kit from Nikon that bundled a D750 DSLR with a collection of prime lenses and a bunch of other video goodies to help shoot high-quality movies. Now Canon has gotten into the act with its Video Creator Kit, which is available for pre-order from B&H Photo.

The new Sony A7 II is a mirrorless system camera with a 24MP full-frame sensor. It is the follow-up to the A7, Sony’s successful and first full-frame CSC (Compact System Camera), which debuted in 2013. The new A7 II has a somewhat different body design: the grip on the right-hand side became a little larger and now fits better into the photographer’s hand. The body overall became 100 grams heavier. The larger grip and the heavier body allow the photographer to hold the camera in a very stable and steady fashion. Handling is even better with the optional Sony handgrip: VGC2EM.
