SXSW 2014: First you have to get the gear there!

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Let’s go down to the streets and see what’s up

Monday, May 21st, 2012

The human condition. It’s perhaps our favorite subject matter in the world of photography, and it’s global.

The richest mine for the subject matter of humanity is, of course, the city. Any […]

Picture the world together on May 15th. Bring your camera. By Fred Bonilla

Monday, May 7th, 2012

As photographers, we too often concentrate on a somewhat myopic view of our work. We want our results to reflect what we see or what our clients pays us to convey. Once in a while, we shoot just to fool around or to simply capture an event with little thought of what’s captured. But what […]

Move on up and get rewarded: Nikon upgrades entry level DSLR

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Ready to make a move up from your point & shoot. Or should we say, iPhone? You know the deal: shutter lag, missed shots, low-fi quality if you want to make any kind of reasonable enlargement. Yeah, I’ve seen the folks sitting at the print kiosks at the local CVS. They all want higher quality […]

Now THIS is an interesting contest! Still photos, Ron Howard, a movie and Canon

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

We see photo contests all of the time, and are asked to help spread the word to keep up the entries. Happy to do so, as we always feel it is a win-win situation between a photographer getting exposure (ouch) and perhaps some prizes, and the contest folks raising some funds. Heck, we did it […]

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

Reader Fred Bonilla has written a few articles that we’ve posted here, and we always welcome his thoughtful perspective.

Real World Review: Our new traveling companion – Urban Disguise 50

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

Yep, your storage unit/ garage/closet may be filled with various camera bags collected through the years, and it becomes like Goldilocks and the 3 bears x 100. This one is too small, this one is too big, and this one is just right. The truth is that they are all just right, but each one […]

We came, we searched, we found. PhotoLA gold.

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

At first blush, we like to just get an overall vibe of a event. Opening night, we let you know that there were fewer dealers and no breakout stars. But then we knew we had to go digging for gold. And we found some. At the Skotia Gallery out of Santa Fe, we found Kelsy […]

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

The human condition can be a brutal thing. Or a thing of beauty. There is a poetic manner in which photojournalists approach their subjects, and tell you the story.

Tommy, can you hear me ? Canon’s 7D built in Mic

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

World Press Disqualifies Winner: What do you think?
