I began following them with the intention of taking a few candid photographs when one of the girls noticed my camera. Instantly and spontaneously, the children formed this composition, assuming more natural poses and expressions than...

Our Picture This! assignment this month was "made in the shade"; pictures made under overcast sky, dark forest canopies, or anywhere the bright sun doesn't shine. Ask a wedding photographer, for example, his or her preference for a wedding day's shoot and generally they'll tell you one with a good cloud cover, even though the bride and groom might be...

Fine art printmakers and their customers will soon have a guarantee on the longevity
of certain Epson fine art prints through Epson's new UltraGiclée(tm)
print certification program. This certification will enable printmakers to sell
their work and enable customers to buy these prints with confidence that the
prints will last.



UltraGiclée certified fine art prints, which can only be created on selected
Epson professional printers using select professional media and EPSON UltraChrome(tm)
ink, will be warranted to resist noticeable fading for 80 years from the original
date of purchase when the print is printed, framed, handled and displayed according
to warranty conditions. If a warranted print fades, Epson will provide the ink
and paper needed to make a replacement print. Current certified printers include
the EPSON Stylus Pro 4000, 7600 and 9600 printers, and certified media include
UltraSmooth(tm) Fine Art Paper, Textured Fine Art Paper and PremierArt(tm) Water
Resistant Canvas for Epson.



Wilhelm Imaging Research (www.wilhelm-research.com)
has independently tested the printers, inks and papers used in Epson's UltraGiclée
certification program for the fine art, fine art reproduction and fine art photography
industries. Final prints made according to the program's specifications will
be registered and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.


In order to earn UltraGiclée certification, printmakers will attend a
training class on proper printing and finishing techniques. Classes will be
offered starting in late spring in various cities across the country. Details
will be available at www.epson.com/ultragiclee
beginning March 14.

It was standing room only in New York, Chicago, Seattle and Los Angeles -
the first four stops of the Just Show Me How Professional seminar tour, where
attendees learned a variety of tools and techniques that address digital workflow
issues of the professional photographer. Only six cities remain on this popular
ten city tour, so only a limited number of attendees will get to benefit from
this valuable information. The remaining cities are:

· Dallas, TX: March 13th

· Boston, MA: April 3rd

Several leading digital photography companies -- including Extensis, GretagMacbeth,
Lexar, Mirra, Nik Multimedia, Wacom, Microsoft, Adobe, and Blue Pixel - have
partnered together to address critical workflow issues that help professional
photographers stay competitive. While most seminars focus on the camera, editing,
or printing, the Just Show Me How seminar gives photographers the tools and
knowledge they need to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of the complete
digital process - after they've taken the picture.



The seminars are taught by Rob Galbraith, professional photographer and digital
photography educator. Rob teaches attendees how to:

· Automate the transfer of digital images to the computer

· Sort and select digital images efficiently

· Construct a complete, color-managed editing environment

· Select and effectively use the correct tools and plug-ins for Photoshop

· Backup and catalog digital images for easy searching and retrieval

· Print digital images quickly and effectively

· Implement goof-proof methods for making files available to clients

has consulted to more than 200 news organizations, top-tier photographers and
digital product manufacturers worldwide and has led dozens of seminars on the
use of digital cameras in professional photography. He is also the author of
The Digital Photojournalist's Guide, a book on the use of digital cameras
