"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.

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.

"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...

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...

Observant Eye
Touring Nepal in 1994 with a small group of women, I was in awe of the prayer flags flying everywhere--cities, villages, and even remote countryside. My favorite site was the Bodnath Stupa in Kathmandu, where streams of prayer flags caught my eye and where the "Buddha eyes" that adorn the temple followed my every move. I took...
