A Computer Spec Checklist For Digital Photographers
Handling, Processing And Sharing Big Image Files
by Anthony Celeste
The computer needs of a digital photographer are different from someone who just wants to check e-mail and surf the Web. In this article, I’ll take a look at some of the features you should look for when considering a new computer. You can look at these suggestions as being divided into two categories: Essentials and Options. Essentials will provide the basic needs for the advanced amateur—not the pro—while Options covers those who use their camera to record video and their computer to edit it.
Jack Robinson’s Legacy Comes Out of the Closet
by Ron Leach, Publisher
Jack Robinson was a prominent American photographer throughout the 1950s and 1960s when his career was cut short by a drinking problem and he faded into obscurity—until a former boss visited Robinson’s apartment and discovered a veritable treasure trove of iconic images.
Robinson was born in 1928 in Mississippi where he spent his formative years before moving to New Orleans in 1946 to study medicine at Tulane University. Shortly after arriving in the Big Easy, however, Robinson began a career in photography—creating vibrant images of nightlife in the French Quarter, shooting portraits of notables in the city’s art and culture scene, and documenting the gay community’s involvement in the annual Mardi Gras festivities.
