Bridge cameras fill a peculiar niche in the marketplace. They’re classified as point-and-shoot cameras, but if you think of point-and-shoots as cameras that can be easily slipped into one’s pocket, the Sony RX10 III doesn’t fit the mold. Bridge cameras can also be as large and...

The world looks different at night.That, more than anything, continues to drive me toward night photography. I started doing photography with a Kodak 110 film point-and-shoot camera, which was completely incapable of performing satisfying night shots due to its lack of manual exposure control. The night beckoned me. On the very first roll of 35mm film I shot with my trusty Nikon 6006 are some (...

What will our future selfies be like? Our guest, Stephen Mayes, suggests that they may be images of what we think rather than what we see.
