There’s nothing like travel to refresh your photographic eye, to make you see new again and break the visual habits gained from the same path trodden day in and out. These days travel might be limited to a park a few miles away or into a city available by transit, but whatever the trip, from arboretum to a national park, there are photographic possibilities awaiting us. We are all curious...

Photography and travel have always been intertwined. Ever since photography was invented photographers have been exploring the world, both locally and globally, with images. The camera becomes motivator and instigator, witness and commentator, of the social, natural, and wondrous sites that surround us. And while many of the articles and images in this issue deal with particular projects undertaken by a wide range of photographers, there’s no reason to think you have to travel far and wide to discover what that magical combination of camera and travel can do for you.

Operating as a plug-in for Lightroom, Aperture, or as a stand-alone workspace, Perfect Layers from onOne Software distills down and codifies the often-complex task of working in Layers to a fairly simple task, offering various Blend modes, composite shortcuts and tools that might otherwise pose a steep learning curve. You can use numerous source files, including Raw, TIFF, and JPEG formats, and scale and move the various layers as required. In short, Perfect Layers poses an effective tool for those who have wanted to work in Layers out of Aperture and Lightroom and opens up new doors to image creation.

The onOne workspace contains toolbars on the left and modifications and working options on the right, #1. Once you have selected an image or images from an organizer such as the Library in Lightroom, they load as separate Layers in the center screen. You choose the images to be used by selecting them from the Library or Browser, then going to File>Plug-In Extras>Perfect Layers. Here’s the selection process shown in Lightroom 3, #2.

Once upon a time we’d bring our roll of film into a lab and wait expectantly for the prints. Upon opening the envelope we’d be surprised or perhaps disappointed, but for the most part we’d accept what was given us, despite the fact that the sky was not as blue as we saw, or a face didn’t have quite the right tone. That was then. These days we have the right (some would...

It goes without saying that digital has changed lots of things in photography. One matter that requires more thorough investigation is how it affects optics and assumptions we have made about the design, recommendations, and even the naming conventions we use. While this column length does not allow for full discussion I'll raise some of the issues and open the floor to our...

’Tis the time of year when many magazines and newspapers and even websites hit you with their annual gift guide, tips for everything from stocking stuffers to big-ticket items. While the latter might have to wait until things improve, photographers and their kin and kindred have many such items available to them, being by nature collectors and, as Joe Farace says, tinkers who are...

We are pleased to dedicate most of this issue to our Photo Marketing Association (PMA) reports, which cover just about every aspect of the show held this winter near world headquarters in Orlando, Florida. We had a very large team at this, the largest photo trade show held in the US, and each reporter was assigned various categories and the picking of their Best of Show. Coming on...

This issue contains our photokina show report, a summary of what caught our eye at the giant photo and imaging show held in Cologne, Germany, every two years. While we concentrate our main energy on the PMA Show held here in the US (our report on that show will be in our July 2007 issue), photokina does represent a milestone in photography in its international appeal and breadth...

Every year the PMA (Photo Marketing Association) convention brings together all things photographic to one spot and attracts visitors and exhibitors from around the world. We see the show as a way to gather information about what's new, and perhaps as important, what's coming in terms of technology in the months and even years ahead. To accomplish our task we have a...
