The Golden Hour
Our Picture This! assignment this month was the "Golden Hour," the magical time of day when the slanting rays of the sun illuminate the world in a most special way. The light is filled with red and amber colors, all due to the way the light is changed as it skims the surface of the earth right before sunset. Those colors always...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was Secret Beauty, out of the way places you love to photograph. The idea was that there are special places you have come to know that spark something deep in your photographic soul, places that only "locals" might know. It could also be places that you had come upon in your travels when you took a turn off the beaten track.

"Sunlit Lily Pads"
I went to PepsiCo Gardens in Purchase, New York, on a very hot summer day. It was 98Þ and I hate the heat. However, I was determined to increase my infrared portfolio and it was now or never. I took my Nikon F100 with me and drove over the George Washington Bridge from New Jersey to take photographs of the Gardens. I...

Geological Wonders
Our Picture This! assignment this month was Geological Wonders, the amazing forms and patterns of the natural world. While we rightfully admire the design concepts and executions of engineers and artists, they are in many ways little match (indeed are often humble imitations) of what a walk in a canyon or valley will provide.

"Budding Photographer?"
While cleaning the yard last summer, I came across a baby praying mantis. Excited, I carefully picked him up and placed him in my wildflower area. I ran in the house to get my camera and tripod, then set up and fired off a couple of exposures.

Realizing that I wanted to get some fill light, I ran back into my house...

One of our favorite categories at this and every show we cover is what we lovingly call our "Weird & Wonderful" report. This serves as both a catch-all for products that are not easily categorized, and for those that display just how ingenious the human mind can be. Some include accessories that might make your photographic life easier and more fun, while...

As part of our coverage each of our reporters were asked to pick out what they considered the Best of Show product, service, or idea. In most cases it is the item that caused them to reconsider how they worked or that sparked their imagination. While each reporter had their beat, this category was open game for all, and most "crossed lines" to find their pick.

Saturated Color
Our Picture This! assignment for this month was Saturated Color. While the world is certainly colorful enough, our interpretation of it can be enhanced through the judicious use of additional vividness in the camera through saturation settings and/or, in the case of film, with a high-saturation color slide film such as Fujifilm's...

"There's No Place Like Home"
I live at the end of a sandpit that curves off the northeasternmost tip of Bainbridge Island, just off the coast of Seattle, Washington. In January the combination of high tides and low barometric pressure frequently floods out the street at our end of the sandpit.

The tide was particularly high on...
