On Assignment (3): Saved by the Light

Matt Bradley (mbradley)

Light — the very essence of photography. Without it, you can’t take a picture, of course. But, as most Nikonians know, not just any light will do. A great composition captured in light that’s only fair, usually ends up as only a fair picture. Read more...

The Debate Rages On: RAW or JPEG?

Connie Cassinetto (Via the Lens)

I follow photography conversations on a couple of different web sites, as do many of us. I also take photography trips to various areas with tour guides, again, as many of us do. Recently I took a guided photography trip to Costa Rica. One of the things I like about taking these trips is meeting new people, mostly other photographers, and talking about our shared love of the craft. This trip I was reminded about the seemingly apparent divide over shooting JPEG format versus shooting RAW format. Read more...

Wayne Lorimer (wjlorimer)

It is said that “familiarity breeds contempt”. We live in a world that demands constant change if we are to remain engaged or interested. Today, children’s attention spans are measured not in hours or minutes, but in seconds. As a culture, we are continually bombarded by imagery designed to challenge, confront or confuse our senses.
