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.
