First off, a brief description of what Facebook is, just in case you’re one of the few people on the planet who is not already a member. Facebook (www.facebook.com) is defined as a social-networking site. It was originally designed by founder Mark Zuckerberg while he was at Harvard University as a way for Harvard students to communicate...

Wedding photography has changed greatly in the last few years, and I expect that trend to continue. The flood gates burst back in the late '80s with a new, more photojournalistic approach to the "Satin Jungle." Gone were the cornball posed...

Ah, Palm Beach. Just the mention of the name brings images of wealth and power to mind. Exotic cars, palatial estates, beautiful people, exclusive stores, and there's so much more--crystal skies, blue-green waters, the Intercoastal Waterway, yachts...

If you'll allow me a little history, let me reminisce for a moment. The first article I did for Shutterbug was in the late '80s. It was about shooting Kodak VPH 400 film at weddings. The film was a big step forward in shooting candid type...

I bought a Fujifilm FinePix S1 Pro the minute it came out--ditto with the FinePix S2 Pro. A box containing the new FinePix S20 Pro digital camera arrived recently on my doorstep along with wide angle and telephoto...

Like most photographers, before I try out new equipment on clients, I test it thoroughly. Yeah, right. It's digital so why bother? We can see the picture right off, so let's get shooting! And so it was with this camera. The day after I got it I was booked in the studio all day with sessions, so after a few...

We all know that the professional D-SLR market is dominated by Canon and Nikon. But there are other viable alternatives out there, including the FinePix S5 Pro. It's always good to consider options so, with that in mind, I'm going to give you my impressions garnered from a 30-day field test, including the pros and cons of the camera and some unique features that...

The rapidly changing world of professional photography has photographers scrambling to grasp all the new technology. Some photographers are film based, some use a mix of film and digital, and many (like me) are now 100 percent digital. But all photographers I talk to express the same concern--how can they increase...

GamiLight has been in the business of making light-shaping accessories for small, dedicated flash units like the ones from Nikon, Canon, Metz, etc., and has recently broadened their lineup. I had heard about their products and thought I’d give them a try, so they responded by sending me just about every modifier they make. I received their Square 43 with the Soft Plus 43 adapter, the Box 60, the Spot 2, the Event Pro, and a few mounts. As we go through this review I’ll let you know what these are all about, but my tests were aimed at determining how effectively the units work, how well they are made, how convenient they prove out in the field, and, most importantly, whether I should consider buying them to solve some of my lighting issues.

My strong point has always been natural light. When clients call me about weddings, I tell them I am a "natural light specialist." I love shooting outdoor portraits and have trained myself to "see the light" in the locations that...
