One camp says the only way to shoot is raw format, and that you have to process the image yourself after exposure for ultimate quality. The other says that you can set up all the parameters you need in the camera and even if you shoot raw you don't need to do extensive image...

While we plunge ahead into the digital world, and continue to buy cameras, printers, and scanners at record pace, there remain some issues that need resolution before everyone can feel comfortable with the digital thing. We do get letters, and your concerns are of paramount interest to us, that raise issues we have often addressed. But the tone of many letters express doubts about...

Process and technique are tied together. If you take the time to do something from beginning to end you often realize what it takes to do it right. Practice makes perfect. Those clichés apply as much to photography as any other art or craft, and describe what more and...

Photography is by definition "drawing with light" and that's what we do every time we press the shutter release button. We take the light reflected from our subjects and etch the moment as a latent image on film or as a binary code that lands up on our...

For those who worked in the confines of the amber-lit chemical darkroom and experienced the wonder of an image emerging from paper after being dipped in a tray of liquid, the changeover to the digital darkroom, as it has come to be known, has been radical. No longer dealing with dye and density, we are now confronted with changeable codes that are handled by graphic interfaces...

More and more digital cameras are now offering a new file format that may be the best choice for those who really want to get into their digital image files. Known collectively as raw, it doesn't really stand for anything, as do the initials in JPEG and TIFF. Raw means...

It's in those tiny, particular pieces of information that come across my desk that I sense the changes going on in photography. True, I can't help but be moved by the major trends such as the wholesale migration of many friends and associates to the digital side.
