Our Picture This! assignment this month was panoramas, and readers responded with a host of images made with panoramic cameras, cropped large format and a goodly number of stitched images, multiple shots made with film and digital cameras brought together with various software programs. It strikes us that the panoramic "genre" is back with more power and grace than...

Early in my photographic career, I found myself making images that I called "mistakes." This was because my favorite images were not always the ones that I intended to take, but in fact the ones that happened by "accident" I often liked better. I discovered that it was the overall process of making pictures that birthed good pictures. This understanding led...

In the meantime, Canon countered with their EOS-1Ds Mark II, which in many ways shaped the competitive landscape. With a street price of $4999.95, Nikon's flagship digital SLR is $3000 less than the $8000 (body only) Mark...

Throughout my lifetime as a photographer I've met strangers who have later had a tremendous impact on my life. Many times, events have had an impact on me as well. This time it was people, place, and timing.

I was teaching a class in Gouverneur, New York. Well, at least I was trying to teach a class. In reality I was so sick I could hardly get out of bed. For...

Flat-bed scanners are remarkably popular and they outsell dedicated film scanners by a wide margin. That's understandable because flat-beds are affordable, simple to operate, and can produce excellent scans of photographic prints, art work, and even small objects. Many of the latest models are even more versatile, capable of scanning frames of film as well, using a...

It is the daily life of schools, churches, education, home life, and street life that draws Ed Kashi. Looking at his photographs we are strongly aware of the man behind the camera, a man with strong questions and feelings about a place and its people.

During 2004, most of the major camera manufacturers announced 8-megapixel digicams, leading us to believe that the next trend would bring 10-megapixel models in 2005. Instead, it brought a slew of new 7-megapixel cameras with built-in lenses. At press time, over a dozen such models were available.
