Inexpensive? Yes. The last 5x7 I considered, but didn't buy, was a twin-lens (!) on its own studio stand. It...

Paul Aresu
I had worked before with some of the other Explorers. I had even employed and trained one of them. But I had never before experienced the likes of Paul Aresu, a New York-based commercial photographer. His clients are like a who's who of dream customers. Aresu is a freestyler. He shoots just like all the commercial photographers you see in...

Konica Minolta's DiMAGE X1 is an 8-megapixel point-and-shoot digicam that's almost as tiny as their other X-series cameras. It's also sleek, stylish, and comes with a cradle for transferring images and recharging. All that's good stuff but the really big news is that the camera includes Konica Minolta's Anti-Shake technology for taking sharp photos in...

"With the alternative processes, you can see someone's hand at work. It's a very personal way of creating a photograph."

Just the other day a buddy of mine bought the Hasselblad he'd always wanted but couldn't afford at the unheard price of $475. It was a 20-year-old Hasselblad 500C/M, the functional equivalent of the current 500C/W. He purchased it from a private seller for $475 in near-mint condition, complete with 12-exposure back, waist-level finder, and 80mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss...

Last year, I had the opportunity to photograph one of the world's most magnificent waterfalls. I traveled halfway around the world to capture the beauty and awe of this exotic and remote travel destination. I was filled with great photographic expectations.
