Hasselblad X1D II For Landscape Photography

My college graduation present from my parents was a Mamiya 6 rangefinder. I loved that camera. It offered the image quality of medium format film but in a hand-friendly, rangefinder-style body rather than the boxy form factor of most medium format cameras. The Mamiya 6 had its limitations. There were only three lenses available, and […]

Every photographer views new products in personal terms: How will this camera, lens or accessory help me to achieve my photographic goals?

Composing wild-life subjects in motion, like this pair of capuchin monkeys, can be quite challenging, particularly if they’re moving erratically. But with the E-M1 Mark III’s fast burst mode and its ability for you to quickly set or reset the camera’s focus point using the camera’s new joystick, you can be reasonably sure you’ll not […]

Are Tripods Obsolete?

While I used a tripod to create this image of Crater Lake many years ago, with the stabilization tech now available I could have easily shot this image hand-held at the 1/6 sec. exposure it was made at. It’s a new world of lightweight backcountry shooting when images like this are possible without a tripod. […]

Hands On With The 40-Megapixel Leica M10-R

I shot with the Leica M10-R on a bright day in the Angeles National Forest. Sunny conditions were an opportunity to photograph high-contrast scenes. In this image, I was able to recover substantial detail in the shadows of the foreground. The vast majority of new cameras today are marketed with an emphasis on their technology […]

Be A Photo Mentor

Snowmelt above Flagstaff, Arizona creates the spectacular Chocolate Falls. This seasonal cascade offered me the perfect venue for a lesson in the effects of longer shutter speeds on moving water.

Realize Your Vision

Nothing is as thrilling as the moment when all of your planning and preparation to get “the shot” pays off, right before your eyes. But the most lasting satisfaction comes from holding an archival photographic print that faithfully reproduces that vision. A perfect sunrise over the landscape. Polar bears dancing in the tundra. Your best […]

Rafting Grand Canyon

Our group had landed a prime campsite just across the Colorado River from Deer Creek Fall, and we weren’t about to let a little rain dampen our spirits. The rain continued as I spread my tarp, assembled my cot and looked skyward for relief. While the sun was still buried in dark clouds, a patch […]

Guardians Of The Grassland

“Prairie rats.” “A nuisance to farmers, ranchers, developers.” “Overpopulated.” Does the prairie dog really deserve this reputation? A prairie dog takes a strong stance on its burrow. This prairie dog’s colony was relocated out of the way of development in Fort Collins, Colorado. These fluffy, charismatic animals play a complex and important role in the […]

Koala Rescue

Burnt trees line the Bruthen-Buchan Road, south of Buchan, Victoria. Over 30 million acres burned during Australia’s 2019-2020 summer of hell. That’s 12 times the recent Amazon fires and more extensive than ever before in recorded history. The intensity (how much heat was generated) and the severity (the amount of damage to vegetation) were both […]

Finding Urban Wildlife

A tricolored heron inches toward the muddy shores that a rival snowy egret has claimed for the afternoon. I lift my lens through my car’s sunroof and take aim. The mid-afternoon sun perfectly silhouettes them in the silvery water. Suddenly, the snowy egret takes off with a flurry of motion toward the tricolored heron. The […]

Best Photo Printers For 2021

The Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-300 can produce cut-sheet panorama prints up to 13×39-inches. Not so long ago, the photographic print was how everyone experienced photography. Before websites, smartphones and apps, shoeboxes with stacks of 4×6-inch photos of the family vacation were a household staple—I still have a few in the garage myself. For the casual photographer […]
