Telephoto lenses are great for bringing distant objects closer and giving you "tunnel vision" that isolates parts of your personal field of view. They also have an added benefit, a visual trick most commonly called the "stacking effect," where a series of subjects each distant from one another are brought in much closer visual contact. This compression of...

If there was ever any question that photos keep memories alive it was answered by the wonderful pictures we received for this month's Picture This! assignment. Readers sent us a treasure trove of their family pictures, many accompanied by stories of those family and friends depicted. As we looked at each one and read the accompanying text we couldn't but help think...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was “Trees,” and readers responded with an amazing variety of those marvelous life forms from all points of the globe. It’s clear that trees remain a fascinating subject for photographers in their form, the way they catch light, and in how they adapt to the often harsh and many times beautiful places in which they exist. The photographs...

Our Picture This! assignment for this month was on Trick Lenses and how they help us to see in ways that our normal perception does not allow. Readers responded with images that used accessory lenses, as well as glass that distorts light in fascinating ways. Some used scanners to create imagery, while others “squeezed” light through pinhole apertures. While photography is mostly used...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was “Water Flow,” and we probably received as many, if not more, entries than any number we’ve had for any topic thus far. This makes it clear that all of us are entranced by the magic of water as it moves and changes, and that we know that the magic of photography is a perfect way to capture our fascination with it. The general technique...

Our Picture This! assignment for this month was Water's Edge. Interesting photographs often result from considering the edge, whether that be the edge of an idea, a territory, light and dark, or, our assignment, where land meets water. The potential for reflection, contrast, mirroring, and interplay of weather systems all come into play. Readers sent in pictures from...

Our Picture This! assignment for this month was “Hey, Look at the Sky!” Readers sent in brilliant images from all around the world of sunset and dawn, of threatening storm clouds, and of fascinating configurations of clouds. In most cases the images included the ground as the anchor on which the sky was tied, and the interaction of reflections and color cast added to the amazing...

Our Picture This! assignment this month asked readers to submit images made of objects that most likely would not be around next time they passed by. Readers sent in images of falling-down barns, commercial signs, and trucks quietly rusting away in fields. To paraphrase Walker Evans, photographers should shoot with history in mind, and with many of these objects the only evidence of their...
