senior editor of Pop Photo from back in the eighties who, when describing the
state of affairs for pros selling stock, told me, "Pictures are not pork
chops to be sold by the pound." He was...

Digital Black and White

By George Schaub



When digital arrived it hardly seemed a scheme that would be any good for my
black and white photography. I now see it as an essential part of the way I
work. This required some translation and transition from film and chemical photography,
but it also required aredefinitio...

Slide Shows That Shine

Digital Makes It A Whole New Ball Game

The Gemini kit is composed of two flash heads (monoblocs) and a Gemini Battery
set, as well as a strong duffle-bag like carrying case and stands for the heads.
We worked with the 500WS heads, although the kit comes in both 250WS and 750WS

When fighting with the sun, your flash might not be powerful enough to fill in the deep shadows created by that large key light in the sky. Luckily, we have help in the form of reflectors which send almost all of the reflected light onto the subject. I will be referring to two types of reflectors here: the Flexfill (and its variations) and reflective (silver-sided) foam core.

their silver black and white papers didn't come as much as a shock as
an inevitability that one always hopes will not be manifest. With inventories
expected to last a few months, we're now witnessing the disappearance

was used for digital printers. According to a Kodak spokesperson, Kodak has
seen a cumulative drop in black and white paper buying of 25% per year over
the past few years and could no longer justify being in the market. We also
learned, by the way, that Kodak black and white papers had of late been produced
