One of the biggest worries a photographer has during an extended trip is whether or not all of the digital files and photos they create will make it back with them. Everyone knows the best way to protect these precious documents and memories is to perform backups, just like you would if you were at home. However, there is the small problem that you aren’t at home with your RAID arrays and card...

It was October of 2012, and I was in the middle of a 40 km trek to remote Hmong and Khmu villages outside of Luang Prabang, in Northern Laos. I was two months into a fifteen-month trip around the world that I had been dreaming of for quite some time and planning for a year prior to my departure. I spent more time debating which camera system to bring than anything else. I forwent my film cameras...

I was in the middle of Burma (Myanmar, if you prefer) when I told my travel partner that it had always been my dream to spend a year traveling around the world. “Would you ever do that? Spend one whole year traveling?” I asked, making conversation, as one does several days into roaming around a foreign country. “Sure,” he responded. In that moment, unbeknownst to my travel partner, traveling...

So, you’re going on a trip? Do you know what gear you’re going to bring with you? Once you’ve tackled which camera body you like, the next step is likely to choose the lens or lenses that will be coming along with you. For some, this can be as straightforward as bringing the one or two lenses you own. For others who seem to have acquired a few too many lenses over the years, this process can be a...

My maternal great-grandmother’s family owned three cinemas during the Great Depression. You could say film and photography runs in my blood. Or, ran in my blood, until my grandmother’s father passed away and the ties to the cinemas were severed when they went to her brother. “The rest of the family wasn’t interested… I think there was a possible splinter, or a grudge was held,” my aunt told me....

The new Voigtlander Heliar-Hyper Wide 10mm f5.6 ASPH lens for Sony E-mount cameras isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s not that it will wrestle you to the ground or throw you like a bull in a rodeo; rather, it challenges your skills as a photographer. Speaking as someone who...

The theme of travel is infectious on Instagram, given the more than 100 million posts boasting a “#travel” hashtag. And things get decidedly more complicated from there, since the American spelling of traveler/traveling, and the British spelling with double l’s yield similarly stratospheric figures. Not to mention numbers for synonyms such as #adventure, #voyage, and #wanderlust. Given such...

It is no accident that carrying and using a tripod is a hallmark of many professional photographers. Here are a dozen of the latest travel tripods that fulfill the time-honored maxim that “the best tripod is the one that’s with you”—not the behemoth you left at home. No other photographic accessory will elevate the technical quality of your pictures more easily or predictably—even in this digital...

With deference to Linda Richman, today’s podcast offers its version of the Coffee Talk skit from Saturday Night Live—Fuji is for Artists/Sony is for Pros… discuss! We realize, of course, that any camera—used well—can be for professionals and for artists and that artists can be pros and vice versa; we’re not so naïve as to think otherwise. Given the parameters of the topic, however, we take on...
