The power of suggestion is very strong in forming our perceptions. Think alligator, for example, even in a big northern city, and soon you might begin to see forms and objects that bring that reptile to mind. Our Picture This! assignment this month was just that--seeing the forms of letters of the alphabet in everyday objects and scenes. Readers responded with images that...

Sometimes you can become so consumed with the horizontal plane of good composition that you seldom experiment from different perspectives.

One afternoon while trekking around Black Hill Regional Park with my daughter, Allie, I decided to hold my camera in the vertical position and place it on the ground. While she kept an eye on a grey heron, I kept my eye on the road...

Our assignment for Picture This! was "Personal Portraits," and readers responded with wonderful images of those near and dear to them. Each image we received held something very special for the photographer and for those of us who viewed them here at the magazine. We wish we could publish many more than space allows. Once again, it proves the point that photography...

As part of our annual Photo Marketing Association (PMA) coverage we ask our reporters to deliver a "Best of Show" award. While each contributor had their own beat, we also asked them to go beyond their respective area of coverage to find what, for them, signified a breakthrough product, technology, or new trend that they felt would affect all photographers in the...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was festivals and parades, and we asked readers to submit images from gathering spots and events where people dress up, fly in hot air balloons, and generally experience things that are quite out of the ordinary. We received images from festivals all around the country that delved into all sorts of cultures and holidays, all of which...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was all about cityscapes and how we associate a city with the grandeur of its buildings and how the architecture defines its space. Yes, cities have millions of stories within them, but when you step back and view it from a distance it's about its profile and the face it presents to the world. Readers responded with mostly idealized...

A few years ago, on a hot summer afternoon, I was roaming the streets of New York City when I came across a lively group of domino players. They had set up a table on the corner of 91st and Amsterdam and were enjoying a game in the shade. Charmed by the scene, I watched from a distance while I built up the courage to ask if I could photograph them. I knew I couldn't let...

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.
