Books about digital imaging can be a source of information and inspiration. They have the space to provide an in-depth look at programs, plug-ins, or techniques and many of them include CD-ROMs loaded with demo or "tryout" versions of commercial software, shareware, or files of the...

What does the Internet have to do with the invention of graphics plug-ins? More than you might think and you don't have to be a fan of James Burke's TV series Connections to make the necessary connections. It starts in the mind of computer...

Many people’s New Year’s resolution is to lose weight and since, as of this writing, I’ve lost 53 lbs, that’s low on my list of possibilities. Last year in this column I announced a resolution to make a new photograph every day and post in a gallery called “2011 Photo of the Day” (http://farace.smugmug.com). If you visit it, you’ll see that I’ve only partially succeeded. The project turned out to be much harder than I expected and only heightened my appreciation of some of the Picture-a-Day blogs and websites featured in Web Profiles during 2011. Instead, my 2012 New Year’s resolution is to update all of my websites and blogs and I’m well on my way, including a long-overdue update to www.joefarace.com. In the meantime, you can draw some inspiration from the websites and blogs that are featured to kick off the New Year.

Steichen was always one of my photo heroes. A true Renaissance man, along with Alfred Stieglitz he opened the Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession in 1905, won an Academy Award for his World War II film The Fighting Lady, and became director of the Department of Photography at New York’s Museum of Modern Art where he curated the legendary “Family of Man” exhibit that traveled to 69 countries and was seen by 9 million people. A companion book sold 2.5 million copies. Yet, many photographers today don’t even know his name. One of this column’s goals is to bring future “Steichens” to the attention of Shutterbug’s readers and I’m especially proud of the group of photographers that I’ve assembled for this month.

"Praise youth and it will prosper."--Irish proverb

For many photographers, especially young ones, it seems like the most difficult challenge they face is getting published. Maybe not?

"Attain the center of emptiness, preserve the utmost quiet..."--Tao Te Ching
