Many of us enjoy macro, or close-up photography. The ability to extract small details from a scene, whether a single flower, an abstract pattern from some common item, or detailed images of small items for online auctions, is the forte of many digital cameras. SLR style cameras have special macro lenses, some of...

Accurate skin tones can be one of the most vexing problems facing the digital portrait photographer. The human eye sees skin tones as memory colors--we know what to expect, and when we see something different, our brain registers the fact, making everything else in the image seem off color.

The biggest challenge when photographing cars at auto shows--indoors or out--is dealing with cluttered backgrounds. In the past I've used low angles, high angles and postproduction techniques to blur the setting and add some zoom-zoom. That approach shifted my focus from the subject to its surroundings...
