I can’t say I’ve ever gotten excited over a firmware upgrade, but then again, as a photographer who enjoys photographing architecture, I never thought I’d see the day I could correct keystone distortion—the distortion that makes buildings look like they’re falling over backward—in-camera and in real time with a Leica rangefinder camera. 2021 is only a couple of months old and already I have good feelings about it. Leica’s latest firmware update, which enables a

For many people, the word “landscape” typically conjures up images of snow-capped mountains, mighty rivers, and flower-covered meadows awash in the light of golden sunsets. But what if these photo utopias are beyond the bounds of a reasonable driving distance? What if your choices of places to photograph is limited to your immediate neighborhood or town? Are you skunked when it comes to landscape photography? The answer is, “No, not at all.” Photographs © Allan Weitz 2021 Let’s start by defining our goal. A random Google check for a definition

I’m not a stranger to wide-angle lenses. If anything, I’m partial to them. In my book, a 24mm lens is a normal lens, and I can’t tell you how many times I shot my way out of tight spaces using a 15mm rectilinear lens. The Samyang XP 10mm f/3.5, which boasts a 130° horizontal viewing angle, is just shy of the horizontal viewing angle of our eyes (approximately 135° AoV). Though I’ve never been intimidated by ultra-wide-angle lenses,

While strolling through Midtown Manhattan with my family over the weekend, we stopped for a few minutes at the courtyard of the Stephen A. Schwarzman building, the main branch of the New York Public Library. It was one of those moments during the golden hour in which the light was hitting the architecture just right, and I’d wished I’d had my camera with me. This library never stood out to me as a prime subject to photograph, but now I’d seen it in a new light (pun intended). So, on Monday, when I was asked to review the new

As photographers, we tend to monitor weather conditions before deciding whether to shoot outdoors on any given day. After investing thousands of dollars in a camera and lenses, we are determined to protect our gear at all costs. But if you truly think that rain or snow is an obstacle to getting outdoors and building that portfolio, you’d better think again! Lone man walking in Times Square during a snow

Vivienne Gucwa is a native New Yorker, born and raised in Queens, and residing in Manhattan for the past decade. A self-taught photographer, she began making pictures in 2009, with a simple point-and-shoot camera. Choosing a direction and traveling through the city as far as her feet would take her, Gucwa’s limited equipment forced her to learn about light, composition, and color. In her images, she strives to capture the beauty of both well-known New York landscapes and less visited parts of the city, with a goal of sharing that beauty and
