May was National Photo Month, the former home of Take Your Camera to Work Day, and the month I was born, so you might say it’s a month for celebrating the art and science of making images, no matter what that medium—film or digital—may be. This month’s column features images from the U.S.A., Canada, and Slovakia, and each website and photographer showcases the joy of image making with the ability to share their work with like-minded individuals around the world, which is the main reason why photography is the universal language.

The DSLR Wheel Of Filters: Would you like to change filters without having to fumble with color gels and multiple lenses? The DSLR Wheel of Filters makes it fast, easy and fun to create different effects with the 18 different filters and prisms that you can change with the simple turn of a wheel. Just mount it directly onto your DSLR body, snap on one of the two rotating wheels and enjoy. Wheel number one has colors, dual colors, and color surrounds. Wheel number two has lenses that include kaleidoscope, macro and more. The Holga base-lens is responsible for its distinctive lo-fi toy camera look and you can shoot video through it, too. The DSLR Wheel of Filters is available for Nikon or canon cameras and the retail price is $41.99.

Our Shutterbug Photo of the Day is a beautiful shot of light, shadow and flowing water in rugged canyon by Laura Zirino.

“The Narrows in Zion National Park as morning light hits the back wall of Wall Street, so named because this is where the canyon passage becomes very narrow. My first instinct in this place is to shoot vertical to capture the height of this unique place, but later I looked at this one and cropped out the top and bottom, making it a horizontal shot. I like this version much better,” writes Zirino.

I think I speak for nearly every photographer when I say going to a new location excites me, especially if it is one I have dreamed about for years. We all dream of these once-in-a-lifetime photo adventures. But the truth is for most photographers, the majority of our shooting is actually done in locations that are closer to home and allow us to return more regularly.
