In 2006, Michael Crouser took the first photograph in his mountain ranch project. Ten years later he took the last image to complete Mountain Ranch, the book that grew from the project. He calls the book “an exploration of the disappearing world of cattle ranching in the mountains of Colorado,” but it’s more than that: it’s a story of the ties and traditions of families, and a story of an America that was, struggling to still be.

Talking Pictures by DCW takes you on a trip down camera memory lane as it pays homage to the 30th anniversary of Canon’s iconic EOS system in the below video. Showing the various film, DSLR and mirroless cameras in the EOS (Electro-Optical System) universe from 1987 to 2017, the 1.5-minute clip demonstrates how much and, in many cases, how little Canon’s EOS models have changed over the years.

The accurate colorization of old black-and-white photos involves a combination of artistry, painstaking research, physics and digital technology. And when the effort yields a realistic and vibrant reconstruction of the historical past, the result is quite magical.

The Rescued Film Project is an amazing online gallery of images that were captured on film between the 1930's and late 1990's. The fascinating and poignant video below chronicles the discovery and restoration of 31 rolls of undeveloped film shot by an American solidier during World War II. When you see the resulting photos, prepare to be stunned.

Today’s digital cameras have become so adept at almost any shooting situation that, paradoxically, they can inhibit creativity by always delivering a technically perfect result. With little effort, a photographer can produce a sharp, clear, well-exposed image, color balanced and, well, a bit too perfect.
