One of my favorite times to shoot landscapes is when a thick fog has descended on the land and engulfed everything in sight. It is a magical thing to experience, and for fine art nature photographers it doesn't get any better. We all love to shoot scenes with brilliant, saturated colors and crystal clear air typical of well-known national parks like Bryce Canyon and Monument...

As with CRT monitors, LCD displays for computer use exist because of a larger market for television sets.

Photography by definition is "drawing with light." It is creating a frame around a play of light that translates to a continuous tonal image. That definition helps identify one of the most important aspects of the craft, which is first seeing and then understanding how the play of light influences the image; how it expresses the photographer's vision and creates...

If you photograph outdoors in daylight you're going to have minor exposure problems. You simply can't control the light as much as you might like, or need.

Our example is typical. The red barn is exposed correctly, but the grass is "hot" and the sky is washed out. Here is how you can correct these two little faults:

Taking good close-up pictures of most any small subject a foot or less away from the lens is relatively easy these days, what with the macro-focusing capability found on some zoom lenses.
