As I look over my favorite photographs taken through the years, a common theme intertwines many of them together: serendipity has played a major role in creating those images. Given this, I decided I wanted to be lucky more often (as luck has it, this is actually possible). Recently I read an article about the science behind luck and how luck is not random, but rather something we...

Let me begin with a confession. When testing Leica's D-Lux 2 I did something I advise Shutterbug's readers never do: I received the camera on Friday and on Sunday stuck it and the user's guide in my pocket to read on the four-hour flight from Denver to Acapulco, Mexico. Oh, yeah, I charged the battery before I left. It's a testament to this camera's...

In the summer of 2004 I was the touring drummer for Beth Hart as she rallied through The Netherlands and Denmark playing clubs and festivals. My crusty, trusty Pentax ME Super went with me everywhere, though I didn't have an opportunity for much photo hunting beyond the van, dressing room, and hotel. I longed to put on my Eisenstadt hat and capture the pulse of the cities we...

I get many questions from readers, pros, and people I meet who don't trust putting their images into a portable storage device, hoping that they'll safely be there (in the card) when they get back from a vacation. After all, the gadget has a simple job to do; it must safely hold your image files until you download them onto your computer. There are many kinds of...

The somewhat archaic reference in the title of this month's Editor's Notes shows you from whence I came, and perhaps where most photographers are heading. The onrush to digital is apparent in sales stats from the holiday shopping season, where 90 percent of the cameras sold were digital. The show season, which began in January and stretches into the fall, is filled...

"Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask `how,' while others of a more curious nature will ask `why.' Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information."--Man Ray

As PCs evolved from the early to the mid-1990s and more and more had color monitors there was a flurry of interest among application programmers to develop and offer paint programs, mostly to provide computer users with a creative opportunity to make digital art. As color scanners became more available in the consumer market these paint applications were also used to input...
