During the day cities can be mundane places, with commuters going about their business and trucks jamming streets making their deliveries. But at night cities can come alive with light and activities that speak to a different side of life, one where details fall in the shadows and edges are electrified. Night exposures create new challenges for photographers, ones where camera...

When my husband and I were expecting our first child, we were elated at the thought of "showing her the world." During my pregnancy, I promised myself that we'd not be the type of parents who left our child at home while we went out and experienced life. There is so much in the world to see, and it is our responsibility to make sure she is a part of that.

In New Orleans, during happier times, I was walking around the French Quarter and noticed a group of street performers. This particular man was deep in concentration; eyes closed, he was obviously "feelin' jazzy." I felt that the audience related to him and realized that he loved what he was doing. I knelt down on my knee to shoot up and slowed the shutter to...

Road trips and photography are synonymous for fun. As photographers we learn quickly that the earth is overflowing with photographic gold waiting to be mined. Whether the prospects are manmade or God-made, we are the Lewis and Clarks of photography, exploring the unexplored and discovering the undiscovered.

Our Picture This! assignment for this month was "From Above," images made from a vantage point looking down onto a scene. Many times our best pictures come from making the effort to scale heights that allow us to consider the subject from a different point of view, one not ordinarily seen. Readers climbed stairs, looked over the railing of bridges or out windows...

Our Picture This! assignment for this month was Water's Edge. Interesting photographs often result from considering the edge, whether that be the edge of an idea, a territory, light and dark, or, our assignment, where land meets water.

On vacation in Abaco, Bahamas, we were painting buoys we found to hang on the trees of my sister's vacation home. After just a few minutes I noticed my niece's hands and it became obvious the shot I needed to take. I had her hold her hands out so I could shoot a few frames at various apertures.
