Captain Charlotte T. McGraw began her career as a talented studio photographer for MGM but when World War II began—and our country needed her—McGraw bravely walked away from the safety and glamour of Hollywood and joined the Army. She became the official Women’s Army Corps photographer and her assignment was to capture images that would have a positive influence on how American women viewed serving in the military. The Captain’s amazing—and often very dangerous—journey took her through Africa, England, Asia, the Pacific and military hospitals around the USA. Along the way, she met a variety of famous and interesting people from General Eisenhower to war correspondent Ernie Pyle all the while documenting the very real and important role the WACs played in the war effort.

With the swift advances and the continuing simplification of technology (smart phones, laptops, tablets and more), the Internet has been transformed into the ideal venue for artists of all sorts. The Internet can now be used as a gallery and a marketplace with unlimited potential. As a result, photographers by the thousands flock to various sites to showcase and share their work while others build their own websites to advertise their studio and attract new clients. With the potential to be seen by—very literally—millions of people, this is a wonderfully golden opportunity but for the beginner it can also be a bit confusing as to exactly where and how to get started.

Alphabet Everywhere; by Elliott Kaufman; Abbeville Press; $14.95; (ISBN: 978-0-7892-1115-6)
Our daily environment is full of thousands of very tiny details. They can be found in many forms from light and shadow to colors, patterns and textures both natural and man-made. All of these tiny bits and pieces make up the big picture that is our world but is often hidden in life’s mosaic. Architectural photographer Elliott Kaufman has a very sharp eye for detail and a highly developed sense of whimsy. These are extremely valuable traits that every artist works hard to develop as part of their artist’s eye. It’s clear that Kaufman expertly exhibits these hard won traits—along with his extensive photographic skills—in his book, Alphabet Everywhere.

Hoya PROND Neutral Density Filters
Created with still photography and HD-SLR video in mind, the new line of Hoya PROND filters (2 to 6, 6 2/3, 7 2/3, 9, and 10 stops) use ACCU-ND technology to provide a true neutral color balance that does not add any noticeable color cast to your images while effectively reducing the amount of light entering the lens. The filters feature a low-profile one-piece aluminum frame and clear optical glass with a metallic ACCU-ND coating on the front and back. The filter rests securely over the lens, parallel to the sensor, and can also be used with super-wide-angle lenses.
