New developments in digital technology have given the artist new tools; digital cameras and software programs with incredibly creative options have allowed artists in all media to advance their work beyond the ordinary. While Jeff Berman, whose work appears on these pages, admits that new technology has opened creative doors, he also knows that at the heart of any work is an eye...

In most cases when we talk to climbers who photograph or photographers who climb, we start out by asking which came first, the climbing or the photography. About 75 percent answer the former. Then we ask why they climb. The answer is usually some variation of "it's a thrill." And then, why they photograph, which brings a variation of "to capture the...

While the city of Shanghai is a wonder to see, this portrait photographer, on a trip to Shanghai, still looks at faces first. I couldn't help but noticing the incredible faces on both the adults and the children. Everywhere I turned, the faces are what grabbed me. I had no trouble taking pictures of the children. Their parents were more than happy to cooperate with me. But...

As I look over my favorite photographs taken through the years, a common theme intertwines many of them together: serendipity has played a major role in creating those images. Given this, I decided I wanted to be lucky more often (as luck has it, this is actually possible). Recently I read an article about the science behind luck and how luck is not random, but rather something we...

Let me begin with a confession. When testing Leica's D-Lux 2 I did something I advise Shutterbug's readers never do: I received the camera on Friday and on Sunday stuck it and the user's guide in my pocket to read on the four-hour flight from Denver to Acapulco, Mexico. Oh, yeah, I charged the battery before I left. It's a testament to this camera's...

In the summer of 2004 I was the touring drummer for Beth Hart as she rallied through The Netherlands and Denmark playing clubs and festivals. My crusty, trusty Pentax ME Super went with me everywhere, though I didn't have an opportunity for much photo hunting beyond the van, dressing room, and hotel. I longed to put on my Eisenstadt hat and capture the pulse of the cities we...

I get many questions from readers, pros, and people I meet who don't trust putting their images into a portable storage device, hoping that they'll safely be there (in the card) when they get back from a vacation. After all, the gadget has a simple job to do; it must safely hold your image files until you download them onto your computer. There are many kinds of...

The somewhat archaic reference in the title of this month's Editor's Notes shows you from whence I came, and perhaps where most photographers are heading. The onrush to digital is apparent in sales stats from the holiday shopping season, where 90 percent of the cameras sold were digital. The show season, which began in January and stretches into the fall, is filled...

"Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask `how,' while others of a more curious nature will ask `why.' Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information."--Man Ray
