Our Picture This! assignment this month was Sunrise/Sunset and we received a year's worth of risings and settings from our very talented readers. The images showed a wide range of subjects and locations, from Alaska to the coast of Maine, with rainbows and the dazzling light as it moved in and around everything from peaceful harbors to the great cities of our land.

Small Camera Case Plus
An interesting new idea in multipurpose cases comes from Norazza, called the Ape Case Tri-Fold Traveler. At first glance, it looks like a case suitable for a small compact 35mm or digital camera, but when a hook-and-loop fastener is opened it expands to a 15.5" length having a protector organizer function with no less than 20...

In autumn of 2001, as I was traveling along Florida's back roads, I drove by a small carnival. Passing amusement merrily occupied a parcel of land. Backing up, I found myself in a place last visited in childhood. Time and the constraints of ordinary life lost their urgency, and illusion became reality. We were all...

I was talking with an editor friend of mine recently. He sees a lot of photographs--most of them taken by professionals, but some by amateurs. Every once in a while he's involved in judging amateurs' photos for online photo contests. He was telling me that many of the contest pictures he sees are...

Many of Pamela Hawkes' images seem familiar, a house we may have seen or even lived in at some time, a bouquet of flowers arranged for our dining room table, or the image of a woman's upper torso, her hands folded in her lap. But though the objects seem connected to us in some way there is a...

Although most digital cameras produce clean images at low ISO settings, digital noise often degrades images made at higher ISO levels. Resembling colored specks that are visible especially in shadow areas, noise can be prominent in ISO 800 and higher images made with a digital SLR. It's even more problematic...

Good portraits need to be created with controlled light. You just can't bring people out into open spaces--where light is coming in from all around--and get good results. There are many ways to control light for portraits both in a studio environment and outdoors. I illustrated several of my techniques...

A significant number of photographers routinely set aside their computer-designed wonder lenses to make images with pinholes. And why not? It seems like magic when a simple pinhole poked in one end of a shoe box projects a surprisingly clear image on the other end. Unlike other pinhole how-to's you might have...

Here is a quick tip list on letters for the HELP! desk:
Please confine yourself to only one question per letter. Both postal letters and e-mails are fine, although we prefer e-mail as the most efficient form of communication. Send your e-mail queries to editorial@shutterbug.com with Help in the subject header and your return e-mail address at the end of your message.

Black and white photography has always held a special place in the hearts and minds of photographers. The charm of the medium is that it is so flexible in both technique and its ability to communicate many different moods and points of view. Consider the documentary photographer, who uses black and white to enclose images in a gritty realism that color somehow cannot match, or the...
