Printing with the Epson Stylus Photo R3000

With the arrival Epson’s Stylus Photo R3000, Epson has narrowed the gap between their prosumer photo-quality desktop inkjet printers and their larger-format, Professional Imaging inkjet printers. In terms of physical size and technology, the Stylus Photo R3000 (aka the SP R3000) is both larger and technologically more advanced than the Epson Stylus Photo R2880, which it supplants as the top gun of Epson’s prosumer desktop line-up.*

The Human Element: The Peter Souza Exhibit at the Leica Gallery

Peter Souza is the White House Press Photographer. But he doesn't only capture the major public moments in the life of the President, he also captures the more human and tender times. Many of his photos are on display in an exhibit at The Leica Gallery in NYC entitled, "The Obama Presidency: A Look Behind the Scenes." Though his photos are already showcased on the White House Flickr Account, Peter's work is something that needs to be seen in person to truly be experienced.

Identify Critters and Vandals with Wildlife Cameras

Homeowners are often frustrated by damage or vandalism that occurs on their property. Short of staying up all night to see who or what is causing the damage, what can one do? Wildlife cameras are digital cameras that can shoot still images and video.

Practicing Underwater Photography

About 90 miles from NYC is a playground for scuba divers. Dutch Springs, a limestone quarry, attracts northeast scuba divers to train, practice, try new gear and socialize. Many divers thumb their nose up at diving Dutch. Local wreck divers prefer to dive the changing offshore shipwrecks. Warm water divers are not interested in the cold water and some-what low visibility. That being said many dive shops in the Northeast conduct their training at Dutch, and many divers come here to practice their skills.

Even the tiny boat wreck between the platform and bus could make a dramatic image

Review: Nikon 200mm f/2 VRII

I try not to fetishize gear. When you shoot as much as I do, everything loses its luster quickly—figuratively and literally. Cameras, lenses and lights are just the sum of their capabilities, and all that matters is how they'll help you achieve different visions. But my heart still skipped a beat when the updated version of Nikon's 200mm f/2 lens showed up on my doorstep.
