Some have filed it away as unexplainable and irrelevant. Others proclaim startling “truths” about its miraculous powers. The good news, or perhaps bad, is that dither will not transform your musical mud into gold, nor will it topple your...

Our lives are marked by firsts. First love, first car, first marriage, first kid, first heartbreak, and first camera. For many photographers of my generation, earlier generations, and younger generations, there are legions who can say that their first “real camera” was the Pentax K1000.

Whether you’re trading stocks, playing games, or using the computer for everyday tasks, you must have felt the constraints of having only one monitor.

To fix the problem, I need to take certain steps, the first of which is to admit that I am powerless—specifically, I am powerless over my sensitivity to sibilance. I’m an avid listener to radio, records, singles, and podcasts, so it can be a burden: If those esses haven’t been tamed, I wince with every offending syllable. And when I listen to an old...

Time-lapse videos have invaded nearly every form of media in recent years, even breaking into our social media apps with the recent development of the hyper-lapse. These types of videos can be quite difficult to make, especially with the time requirements inherent in capturing and transforming a lengthy event into a few seconds of footage.

When I think of fishing photography, I think of the countless 4 x 6" snapshots taped to bait shop and barroom walls I’ve seen over the years, the ones with the proud angler holding the prized catch of the day. These are ubiquitous, universal, and really have no need for improvement, since the point is simply to show the size, quantity, or beauty of the fish—a good memory. Yes, there are terrific...

Common filters available for done cameras include UV, which are typically used as “protective filters,” neutral density filters (ND), which reduce light levels, and circular polarizer filters (CP...
