Yet, while his images are published in more than 80 books and featured in a globally syndicated television show, Wolfe has never defined himself solely through these specialty subjects. “I was trained in a fine art school, and developed an early interest in everything from the antiquity of Europe to modern cityscapes to...

She spent many years photographing with a standard macro lens, but felt creatively stuck by the lack of atmosphere she could achieve with her regular...

We photographers are always searching for that new camera, lens, accessory, project, or technique that will take our photography someplace special. Most of us have ideas incubating in the backs of our minds just waiting for the right time to spring forth.

Lance Keimig finds that a lot of people talk about what kind of folks use what kind of cameras within the Mac/PC and Canon/Nikon universe. “It’s kind of funny,” he says, “I see that a lot more Nikon users work with PC’s and Canon users are Apple devotees, but I’m a dedicated Apple user who’s switched from Canon to Nikon.

A self-taught photographer, she began making pictures in 2009, with a simple point-and-shoot camera.
