One look at the work of Richard Lohmann and you know you are viewing the work of a very skilled photographic practitioner. But what really has Lohmann excited these days are evolutions in digital technology. A combination of advanced film processing techniques and new ink technology has convinced Lohmann that he can now produce images comparable in quality to platinum prints...

Walking along the shoreline I found an accumulation of feathers and a tragic death of a beautiful creature. This left me to wonder, how and why. In the water floats one feather that escaped this tragic ending. I took a picture of this lone feather as it floated away. Every time I look at it, I wonder about its ending and the sadness of it all. The demise of this creature lies in...

So you wake up one morning and think, you know, what I'd really like to do is start my own photography workshop.

You or me, we hit the snooze button and see what we come up with after 10 more minutes of sleep. But not Steve Gottlieb. A commercial photographer with three books to his credit, Steve had been thinking about workshops. He had a close friend who...

Handheld exposure meters have grown increasingly complex over the years. At the same time, they are proving even more utilitarian for a wider range of shooting situations. All of this thanks to microprocessor control. I won't go into the long history of their evolution, but suffice to say that today's high-tech marvels are something else entirely. And the new Sekonic...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was Outdoor Sports, and readers responded with a host of great shots from a near-Olympic-size field that included baseball, running, biking, and rodeo. Judging from these photos it's clear that readers have their eye on the ball and know how to grab those "peak of the action" shots.

There are quite a few new photographic papers available this year, despite many changes in the business. As with film and chemistry, the paper business was affected by the "Ilford Factor."

From late August 2004, when Ilford went into receivership, to early February 2005, when a management buy-out succeeded, the future of Ilford was in some doubt.

Here's an e-mail I sent to a friend at the end of June last year:

"Hey, man, I just returned from Prague with some pretty cool pictures--all lifestyle shots of models. I went with no planning, no preproduction, no shot list, no schedule. And no earthly idea of what I'd come back with. It was three days of me, my camera, a local...

Stymied by all the buzz about megapixels, dpis, ppis, and what-have-you? Should you use a digital camera? Or shoot film? And which is really better? Well, yes, it's a veritable jungle of competing facts, pseudo-facts, and ideologies out there. Then there is the obsolescence factor. As someone who bought a Nikon F Photomic in 1968, a Linhof 4x5 in '70 and proceeded to...

There's something about a good black and white image that makes it jump off the page. It should be simple, direct, and hit you right between the eyes. It stands on its own. It doesn't even need color to make it stand out. It has a full range of tones from a true, deep black all the way to a clear white...with detail throughout.

What kind of...
