February CoverOn The Cover
This month we’re exploring the craft of architectural photography, as indicated by our striking cover image taken by Jeffrey Jacobs of the Janet Huckabee Arkansas Nature Center. To see more of Jacobs’s stunning images, see page 30. Architecture aside, we also have a book excerpt from Jon Canfield on Raw processing and an intriguing pictorial of Ted Kawalerski’s Hudson River project. In addition, we have an exclusive interview with photojournalist David Hume Kennerly. Finally, we have Test Reports on the latest photo gear.
