I started riding motorcycles before I even took up photography, way back in 1972. Both riding and photographing require a lot of practice to achieve mastery. Both pursuits can be rewarding (or frustrating) as that expertise develops (or fails to.) Both involve complex technology with numerous opportunities to spend more and more money.

During my first year at the High School of Art & Design, they made us sample a few months of each course of study offered at the school. Despite the fact I was accepted on the basis of my sculpture portfolio (an EJ Korvettes shopping bag  filled with clay heads), I had a go at technical illustration (nope), fine-art painting (nope), graphic design (nope), fashion design (double nope), and photography (Hmmmmmm...). Before long it was bye-bye clay heads, hello Tri-X.

Someone recently asked for a “super basic lesson on flash” in, as they said, “one or two steps.”  When I say flash, I mean supplementary light that is being used when documenting people, places or things as they are presented to you. I am NOT talking about studio work, where you can control the light and the subject. I am talking about when the photographer has to react to the subject and the light as they are given.

Midday sunlight is terrible for outdoor portraits. It's too contrasty for digital sensors to handle. In other words, the shadows go black and the highlights appear too bright, compared to what the human eye and brain see. That’s why it was a struggle to get good pictures when I photographed the spectacular annual Jember Fashion Carnival in Jember, East Java, Indonesia last month.

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.

We've previously asked you what you wanted to see in the Canon 5D Mk II successor and we also asked if you needed the 21MP output. Indeed, the Canon 5D Mk II is a camera that revolutionized the photography industry and despite the fact that it has its flaws, there are a number of reasons why you should spring for the current version vs waiting for the successor.
