Mother’s Day is coming, and there’s not much time left to get your mom that perfect gift. You could always pick up some flowers or candy, but you’ve probably given her countless bouquets and sweets over the years, so that wouldn’t be much of a surprise, would it?

With Mother’s Day coming up very soon, giving the gift of a new camera to your mother is a brilliant idea that will continue to give well past the time the chocolates get eaten and the flowers begin to wilt.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 is one of the most versatile compact digital cameras on the market. Is it two video cameras in one with dual independent lenses? A 3D video camera? A 3D still camera? An HD video camera that captures high-resolution still images simultaneously? Yes, yes, yes and yes.

I’ve been a fan of pocket-size cameras since they passed the six-megapixel mark some years ago. Since then point-and-shoot digital cameras have become progressively better with every round of upgrades.

While walking to Photo East 2009, I noticed a small yellow bird sitting on the sidewalk. It had apparently flown into the building and was waiting for the bells to stop ringing as legions of camera-laden pedestrians marched by. I coaxed it onto my finger and lifted it to eye level. Now get this; I’m standing in mid-town Manhattan with a yellow bird on my finger… and nobody noticed. I mean nobody.

For many of us, our first foray into photography involved black and white film. It was readily available, and cheaper to process than color. Also, you could easily set up a home darkroom to process black and white film and prints. Color processing wasn’t for the average home user, due to its complex requirements for temperature control and chemicals.

Great nature photographs don’t happen by chance. A blend of good light and a strong composition are keys to creating images that have impact and meaning. When layered with a natural moment, remarkable images are born from the photographer’s vision, combining anticipation and execution.

As should be expected by now, there was yet another article in the NY Times recently that started me thinking (Watch out... this can be dangerous!). The article ('Bringing New Understanding to the Director's Cut', 3/1/10) discussed how the editing of a movie, i.e., the number of shots in each scene, how long they appear onscreen, the pacing, and the order in which they are bundled together greatly affects our perception of the movie. And that includes convincing ourselves we just saw a ‘terrific’ film, even if we didn’t find the film to be all that good.

I shot my first wedding in October 2006. Back then, I simply hoped for the best. Hoped the wedding wasn't delayed, hoped the family members remained nearby for formal pictures and hoped I received a timeline for the day in advance. I'll never forget the terror of standing outside—in a garden—after my first wedding on a pitch-black night for the family formal pictures.
