Dearest Mamiya 7 II, We’ve been together since the fall of 2004, and now, going on a nearly 13-year relationship, I still love you just as much as the day I met you. I remember seeing you from afar in the early aughts, wishing someday you could be mine. Then, by pure luck, I saw you up for auction one day and, better yet, by a local seller in Manhattan and for a very fair price. I emailed the man...

Profoto B1, I must thank you for illuminating the way during some of my darkest moments. Before you came along, the idea of having a capable and portable lighting kit of your caliber was unheard of. A stand-alone 500Ws monolight with lightning-fast flash durations and 20 fps burst shooting, and you manage to communicate with my camera in its own TTL language? Now I had access to features such as...

I quickly fell in love with the Sony RX1R II. It’s small, has a big heart, and can always be found by my side. What caught my eye with this camera was the gorgeous Zeiss Sonnar 35mm lens. I’ve always been partial to this focal length, having owned many varieties of it over the...

I always wanted to own a Leica but, cost factors aside, the camera wasn’t right for me because rangefinder cameras simply cannot focus close enough for the kind of in-your-face close-ups I enjoy shooting. I’ve long been a fan of Leica lenses and have shot with many over the years, but the inability to shoot close-ups without having to resort to additional hardware put the kibosh on any further...

If photographers were to agree on two things, they would have to be the following, although not necessarily in this order: A) You can never have enough camera bags; B) There’s no such thing as the “perfect” camera bag. Now, I’ll be the first to admit I own too many camera bags, although, if brought before a jury of my peers I could justify each of these purchases, even if I’ve only used some of...

As we asked in an earlier episode, “When was the last time you touched a photograph?” It’s an interesting question and some of us are still enjoying the tactile nature of a print, or our time in the darkroom, but most photographers now only experience their photos through a monitor. On today’s episode, we try to change all that with a visit from printer and printing experts Jay Tanen and Sam...

According to Seth Resnick, camera companies have very loyal followings. “Nothing that happens is going to get in the way of a fan’s Canon, or their Nikon,” he says. While generally considered a positive attribute, loyalty does have its drawbacks. “On the positive side, fans are so loyal, but on the negative side, it becomes hard to really accept things that are necessarily wrong with a product,”...

On today’s show, we continue our conversations on landscape photography with Daniel Kordan, one of the most interesting nature and landscape photographers working today. Amongst his many accomplishments, he can count having an image used as wallpaper for Apple computers, and while that is indeed impressive, if you dig deep into his...

Despite our increasingly digitized culture, interest in analog processes is still on the rise. At a time when most of what surrounds us are ephemeral computations of zeros and ones, there is an indisputable appeal to photographs shot on black-and-white analog film. For photojournalist Peter DaSilva, this appeal is rooted in having something tangible, “having an archive that’s not going to...

We are living in a Golden Age of landscape photography. Digital cameras and improved software enable the kind of imaging that until recently was only possible via the budgets of large publications and the talents and ambitions of a few select photographers. Ambition and talent remain, and with enhanced dynamic range and color algorithms, higher sensitivity settings, simplified stitching and...
