Just when I thought I'd seen her at her best, Lois Greenfield steps it up a notch and amazes me once again with her sharp eye for the body in motion. "Sharp" is the operative word here. Many photographers, myself among them, may accept a little blur in a fast-moving subject. Not Greenfield. She learned long ago that if sharpness and crisp detail are important to...

It's challenging to get the right combination of true color, composition, and light playing on figures who are moving in unprecedented positions at a rapid rate of speed. The dancers are theatrical, sassy, and innovative, and this is where Boston photographer Jeffrey Dunn shines as he photographed America's Ballroom Challenge for Public Television's presentation...

If you camp by the riverbed during a monsoon you'll soon have a wet bedroll. Moving to higher ground helps, but sometimes you have to get atop the valley wall to keep dry. That's pretty much what's happened in the last year to those making bets on where digital photography might settle. Just as we think we've reached the high watermark another drenching...

There's something odd about the even years in the photo industry. While manufacturers no longer wait for trade shows to release products, as they did in the past, there's something about the even years that seems to bring forth the really major introductions and changes.
