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. With a production run spanning more than two decades (1976-1997), more than three million of these film SLRs...

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...

The topic of this article might seem easy-breezy to compose, but truth be told—it isn’t. For starters, how do you define “travel friendly?” Where are you going? How are you getting there? And what exactly do you plan on photographing once you get there? Do you already own a camera and lenses? If you do, are you happy with them and, if not, why? There’s simply no way we can address every scenario...

Numerically speaking, the New England road map is as straightforward as it gets, which makes it a great starting point for a travel excursion. Highway numbers are ordered from East to West, so the lowest numbers—such as historic Route 1—are located farthest east. North/South highways tend to have odd number designations, such as the heavily traveled I-95, whereas East/West routes are assigned...
