Ask most photographers what lenses they would like to add to their outfits, and the first thing they start talking about is focal length: one wants an ultra-wide, another, a fast tele for sports photography, and so forth.

Fine. But...

Nikon (www.nikonusa.com) deserves near-unbounded praise for the D70. Not only is it an excellent camera, it also integrates extremely well into an existing Nikon system. This means you can put all kinds of wonderful things on the front. I have absolutely no...

"I'm a strong believer in keeping this as simple as it can be," Gary San Pietro says of the process by which he makes his photographs. "I tell people when they put the camera up to their eye, the key thing is to be clear on what it is that is causing...
