When we first received this amazing image we thought it was (merely) an interesting assemblage reminiscent of Rousseau's Animal Kingdom. Our curiosity piqued, we contacted the photographer, Robert Inouye, and asked him to describe how he made it. We...

the photograph made under very soft light and foggy conditions. A copse
of trees on either side of the road disappears into the horizon and

Maybe you've considered large format. Perhaps you'd like to experience photography as Ansel Adams, Morley Baer, Edward Weston, and other pioneers did. It's a slower, more introspective kind of photography, but if you'd...

No way is Lauren Greenfield a mainstream photographer. Her genre falls into the realm of portraiture and social documentary but her true subject is loss of innocence in a society dominated by media exposure. Greenfield's focus is on the importance of image with young girls caught up in the rituals of pop culture.

Every year the PMA Show becomes increasingly digital in its scope, with fewer exhibitors of "traditional" products.

If there's one thing I learned from working on my latest book, Studio Lighting Solutions (Amphoto, 2005), there is a light specially suited to every subject and situation. Pro photographers find exactly what they need, and if it's not the exact solution, they fashion it to their needs with the addition of various accessories.
