In the "old days" we kept dozens of different backgrounds in our studio. By using different colored lights on them, we could create even more different options for our portrait customers. Today all of that is mostly obsolete. It is now...

First, I must express my gratitude to Olympus. A few years ago when rumors of digital backs for 35mm SLRs first cropped up, I responded in print with the opinion that eventually cameras designed for and around a CCD chip would prevail.

Imagine this: You show up for a wildlife photography shoot in Africa. An expert guide with a Land Rover outfitted especially for photography meets you. Camera mounts are set securely in place on the doors of the vehicle. Several padded...
