Henry Diltz is a photographer who made his living first as musician with Modern
Folk Quartet (MFQ), then as a trusted friend and photographer of many successful
groups from that time forward. The Lovin Spoon Full, The Mama's and Papa's,
Crosby Stills and Nash, The Doors and many more. He bought his first camera
a Kodak "Pony", while on tour with his group. They had a photo shoot
out with slide film and when they got home they shared them with each other
in a slide show. That was enough to hook Henry on photography forever.

Crop & Frame For Impact

Find The Shot Within The Shot

by Jack Neubart

The moment you use the camera’s viewfinder to look at a subject, you are framing that subject. In essence, you are isolating that subject from the larger world surrounding it. And you are bringing the viewer into the scene you’ve defined...

Gang Of Four Thirds

Almost four years ago, Olympus announced its Four Thirds system at a press conference
that was greeted, to be polite, with mild apathy. At a packed press conference
at this year's PMA, Olympus proved me wrong by announcing a Four Thirds
system alliance supported byproduct...

by Jim Zuckerman

Better Photos, More Sleep, Less Fungus



By Ron Leach, Publisher

in between Better Sleep Month, National Good Car Care Month, National Barbecue
