When Tripods Are Not Permitted
How To Capture Great Images Anyway

by Jim Zuckerman

Too often, we photographers are forced to take pictures with what seems like one hand tied behind our backs. By this I mean we can’t use a tripod in low light situations. Sometimes this prohibition is reasonable, such as in museums. No one wants tripods tripping people or falling over and breaking irreplaceable treasures. On the other hand, there are instances when tripods are not allowed and there is no apparent reason. For example, in India you can’t use a tripod on the grounds of the Taj Mahal or any archeological or historical site administered by the government. In some places photographers have to pay extra to use a tripod, such as in the Egyptian ruins at Luxor, and even though I don’t like it, I’m happy that there is a provision for us to use one. I was able to get a sharp picture of the Temple of Luxor at twilight (#1) because I paid the few dollars to bring my tripod into the site.

Industry Perspective

“A Shocking Betrayal”
by Ron Leach, Publisher

In what a Marquette University Professor deems a “shocking betrayal,” it seems that famed civil rights photographer Ernest Withers was a paid FBI informant at the same time he befriended high-ranking civil rights leaders and documented their movement on film. Marquette historian Athan Theoharis notes that Withers’ covert spying during the 1960s “speaks to the degree that the FBI was able to engage individuals within the civil rights movement. This man was so well trusted.”

Telling A Story With Your Pictures
Taking Your Audience Along
by Jim Zuckerman

There are many reasons why people travel. Some like the spirit of adventure and discovery, and others enjoy intermingling with people from other cultures and seeing the world from a different point of view. There are people who travel to sell their pictures or to win contests in camera clubs, and many people get satisfaction out of telling a story with the photos they take on a vacation. Sharing experiences and images with friends and family is a large part of the pleasure they get from their photography.
