Every month in Shutterbug we publish photographs from readers based on an assignment
published in a previous month's issue. We get hundreds of photographs
from readers all around the world and unfortunately we are limited to publishing
just a small fraction of the work we receive. We've had topics including
"Black and White in Color", "Silhouettes" and "Historical
Reenactments." Our purpose in creating this section in the magazine is
to create a visual forum for readers and to challenge them to fulfill assignments.
It's always a delight to open the packages we receive. I know the thrill
I got when my fist photo was published, and my hope is that the same excitement
is shared by those whose images we select to publish each month.

The first interchangeable-lens autofocus SLR produced by Olympus, the E-1 was also the first digital camera to employ a "Four Thirds" CCD sensor. The smallest imager in any digital SLR camera, this one is roughly half the size of the 35mm film frame standard. Consequently, the effective focal...

"I fully expect to hear someday that Bradford Washburn has visited the moon, climbed Copernicus, and photographed the lunar Apennines from a private, orbiting module. You recognize the explorer in Brad at first sight. His photographs look almost inevitable, perfectly composed. These are not simply documents of wilderness; we sense in each one the presence of an individual...
