How many times a day do we walk past those things that usually do not draw our attention? Many times they are the ordinary, the simplistic, and the dime a dozen, that we let go unnoticed. Not so for the passionate photographer.

I am amazed how I can be so focused on those objects that everyone misses. Before I gained an interest in photography, I...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was Sunrise/Sunset and we received a year's worth of risings and settings from our very talented readers. The images showed a wide range of subjects and locations, from Alaska to the coast of Maine, with rainbows and the dazzling light as it moved in and around everything from peaceful harbors to the great cities of our land.

The Y of the convergence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers separates Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. On the West Virginia side is the historic town of Harpers Ferry where the abolitionist John Brown raided the US Armory in 1859. Across the Potomac on the Maryland side is the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal (built in 1850) and its towpath. Late on a fall day two friends and I...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was Silhouettes, and we could have published the Big Book of Silhouettes with all the great images we received. From what we saw we can say that readers have mastered this image technique, with a great mix of people, nature, and architecture. Clearly, silhouettes are a photographic effect that can only be seen with a...

I encountered this gentleman while making a wildlife documentary film in Tanzania, East Africa. His Masai village or "manyatta" was near the famous Olduvai Gorge on the Serengeti Plain. Even though the whole village was well compensated for the privilege of shooting still pictures and videotapes, this warrior still seemed to maintain a healthy suspicion of the...

Our Picture This! assignment for this month was "Color In Black And White," and readers responded with a wide variety of monochrome images, all made using color film or with color files from digital cameras. The key to this month's selections is that not every color image need be awash with red, green, and blue, but that light and atmosphere can conspire to...

I promised myself while on this cruise I would take more of the local color during stops at the ports. The photos I wanted to take were going to tell a story, not about the scenery but about the people. Trouble is, a week...

This month's Picture This! assignment was "Artful Architecture," and we were thrilled with not only the scenes and places we got to visit but with the artful way in which Shutterbug readers made the images. Using a range of wide angle and tele lenses, with many fascinating points of view, the photos gave us renewed faith...
