What makes a photographer follow their moral compass and photograph the stories they feel need to be told, no matter what the personal costs? Furthermore, how do they do so without the support of a news outlet or even an agency to distribute that work? And then, what if they decide to shoot primarily with black-and-white film?!

They cost way more than a jar full of pocket change, but figuratively speaking, premium 24-70mm f/2.8 lenses are a dime a dozen these days.

The folk at Tamron wanted to join the party but, rather than being the...

For news and event photography, I completely rely on a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. I know the advantages of shooting with prime lenses, but for the flexibility required in these (and other) types of photography, a 24-70 is a dependable friend with a sufficiently wide f/2.8 maximum aperture to work interiors with mixed light, the versatility to go wide and cover a room or compose using background and...

Which type you choose for your home studio will depend on how portable you need your lights to be, as well as your budget. Four-monolight setup Model: Mao Hanada Benefits of...

As much as we like to think photography is a pure art form, we do still have to consider basic physics when we create images. One major sticking point is that when you close in on a subject, something that happens all the time in macro photography: the depth of field gets shallower and shallower.

Macro photography is discovery. Even better, it's rediscovery. With selected focus and tight framing, the photographer guides us to see what we would otherwise not, even to reimagine what we think we know so well, common items otherwise overlooked.

It is probably safe to say that many of us photographers have, either with our cameras or smartphones, tried to capture a close-up image of an insect, flower, toy, or other object. We have an idea of what we want this photograph to look like as we prepare to capture the image. We have seen and admired beautiful close-up images before but, when we nose the...
