Pictures as Pork Chops

by George Schaub

The head for this column comes from a statement by Bob Schwalberg, the irascible
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...

By Ron Leach

As the year draws to a close and everyone prepares to take a few days off to
celebrate the holidays, we thought we could also celebrate photography with
some quotes from a few luminaries of the craft:

Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all,

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

A Camera Phone, or a Phone for Photographers?



Nokia N82

by George Schaub

There has been much debate recently about whether a higher megapixel camera
phone could serve as a replacement for a point & shoot digital camera. The
question is--if you carry a point and shot camera for the occasional snap, or
to...

Dynamic Range

by George Schaub

Dynamic range is the ability of the sensor to capture a certain range of light and dark, or brightness values. Think of it as the number of keys on the piano the “hand” of the sensor can cover. While the sensor may offer an octave’s worth of tones, this octave can be moved all around thekeyboard.

Think Negative

The Positive Power Of The Inverse Command

Now I know how stagecoach drivers felt when they saw those first rail lines
being laid over their routes. The recent announcement that Kodak would be discontinuing
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
of venerable brands such as Polycontrast IV, Azo and Polymax Fine Art, Kodabrome
II and Portra, even their "Digital Black and White" paper, which
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
in Brazil, being packaged from rolls in Rochester. The spokesperson did stress,
however, that Kodak black and white film and chemistry was not on the chopping
block and that Kodak sees silver photography as still extremely viable.

As the price of wide format photo printers like the ones offered by Epson,
Canon, and HP continues to come down, more and more digital photo enthusiasts
are adding them to their digital darkrooms. For less than $400, you can now
print photo quality 11x14" images (actually, up to 13x19), saving money
and time without sending these prints out to a photo lab.
