June Cover Welcome to our travel and location photography special. This month we present photo journeys that take you to towns big and small as well as trails and rails in the US and across the globe. We also have an informative insider’s report from pro photographers who expose business tips that you need to know in order to make travel photography a successful endeavor. In addition, we tested a range of products that you’ll want to take on the road this summer, including the Calumet Genesis 300 B monolight, the Nikon D7000, and the Tamron 18-270mm VC lens.

I was looking for an access path to the ocean to shoot the sunrise one brutally cold morning in November at Seabrook Beach, New Hampshire. The temperature was so low my eyes were tearing up so I sat down on this bench to unload my gear and blow on my hands.

When the sun came up a calm rushed over me. I got so caught up in the amazing light of the sunrise that I put my camera...

Our reader assignment for this month was to explore a quality of light that brought out a glow in subjects and scenes. For the most part that meant working with strong backlight and sidelight in hazy or low-light conditions, but readers also, we note, added glow of their own through some post-processing steps. While this was okay with us for the most part, adding excessive glow that was not...

I had passed this long-abandoned, one-room prairie schoolhouse near Elk City, Kansas, hundreds of times over the years and each time I resolved to stop the next time to photograph it. Except for the chimney and tin roof, there had been no apparent effort to preserve the building, which is now on private property. Finally, on a hot, cloudless July morning, after 25 years of procrastination, I...

Our Picture This! assignment was “Reflections” and we received many excellent images that took the assignment to the next level. Readers responded with reflections from many possible surfaces, including ponds, glass buildings, metallic objects, and more. The idea was to make the reflection part of an overall composition, to have it further reinforce the design, color, and forms of...

My commute to and from work took me past this massive tree nearly every day for three years. The tree always commanded my attention, particularly during the winter months when its scraggly, barren limbs were highlighted by the latest snowfall. Though the tree had been dead for many years, it continued to stand as the patriarch of the park. A long-abandoned school remains on the park’s...

Our Picture This! assignment for this month was on Trick Lenses and how they help us to see in ways that our normal perception does not allow. Readers responded with images that used accessory lenses, as well as glass that distorts light in fascinating ways. Some used scanners to create imagery, while others “squeezed” light through pinhole apertures. While photography is mostly used...

We are sad to report the passing of photographer Don Gale. We had the pleasure of working with Don on a number of Shutterbug workshops, and his skill at teaching, his masterful work, and the pleasure of his company were always well regarded by his many students and us. We would also catch up with Don at numerous teaching venues and trade shows, where he would be leading seminars or inspiring...
