I am still coming down from the buzz of energy and excitement that permeated the first annual California Photo Festival back in late September. In thinking about why it was so great, I looked beyond the fabulous location, the great weather, the amazing subject matter and the wonderful food.There was one more thing that made the festival a unique experience for me (and all the photographers who attended). Unlike a typical workshop where you encounter one teacher, it was the opportunity to see how thirteen different photographers approach their photography (and the question of what gear they use).

One of the more interesting VDSLR-related sidebar stories has been the "rediscovery" of manual-focus lenses among VDSLR shooters. Most manufacturers long ago pulled the plug on manual focus lens R&D in order to concentrate their energies into improving AF technologies. And then video came along and lo and behold, all of these AF speed queens turned out to be less than ideal, not to mention too noisy, for shooting anything other than stills.

When last we looked at B&H as a fashion outlet (Dressing for the Tropics), we seemed fixated on the waist up. People would stop me and say: "But Mike, what about pants?" Everyone needs them, especially pros who benefit from extra padding around the knees and hips, pockets that zip and waterproof, breathable fabric. So, today we visit the changing room, virtual like the rest of our just-try-to-kick-the-tires site.

Tips and Solution

Interviews conducted over a telephone are so deeply woven into the fabric of our everyday lives that it's difficult to imagine talk radio or the evening news without them. Telephone interviews are critical in the production of documentary films, audio and video podcasting, and they are almost as widely used in journalism as the pad and the pen.

Not long ago, Photoville happened in NYC. The short event showcased the work of various artists, but in a totally non-traditional way. Photoville utilized pods—giant shipping containers—and gave the artists creative freedom to design the interior however they chose to show their photos. This newly formed tradition will continue at the upcoming DUMBO Arts Festival in Brooklyn. We recently talked to Sam Barzilay about the idea of showcasing art in pods, and more about the festival.

Opening photo is by Li Hao's exhibition, "Worshippers."

We can all appreciate the beloved Ansel Adams. He was one of the greats. His story is inspiring, fascinating and enduring. The man worked as a custodian in Yosemite National Park in order to live in the beauty he so much appreciated and desired to record. He seemed a harmonious blend of romantic artist and master technician. He devoted his life to the pursuit of what he loved. As a darkroom junkie myself, the first time I saw an Ansel print in person, printed by his own hands, I admit that a tear, (yes, a tear) fell down my face. The sheer craftsmanship of his prints was surprisingly moving. I am not here to dispute the fact that Ansel Adams was one of America’s greatest and seminal landscape photographers. I am here, however, to challenge you to find another one. After Ansel, who is your favorite photographer?
