I don’t know much about fast cars except that nine times out of 10, the one in front of me on the NY State Thruway is not fast. However, I would like to share something about ISO and why making a reasoned choice of ISO setting is preferable to leaving the dial on Auto (or on 3200).

And when Eastman Kodak fell, a tidal wave broke on the shoulders of a city and its people.

Imagine you find a great location to capture a landscape and as you set up the light goes from nice to extraordinary, as it did along the banks of the Merced (#1). Your body tingles with excitement, you lock in your exposure and shoot, but when you return to view your shots, you aren’t pleased. Producing high-quality nature photography is a result of learning technique, knowing your equipment and the having the ability to react to a scene in a creative fashion at a moment’s notice. In this chapter we’ll look at the importance of mental preparation and applying your own composition sense to the creative process.

Valentine’s Day is just a few days away, but there’s still time enough for you to parlay your digital photography skills into a memorable gift so you don’t find yourself buying a dozen haggard, mismatched roses at the all-night gas station (again).

The scene is often just the starting point of a Deborah Sandidge photograph. “It’s visualization,” she says. “I’m looking at a scene and imagining what’s going to happen over time.” What was going to happen at the San Antonio, Texas, River Walk was the continuing passage of the water taxis. Sandidge knew they were the key to an expressive, dramatic photograph, one that would get as close as possible to picturing the passage of time.
