Whether it’s a book of photographs, a portfolio, an exhibition, a slideshow, or even just a website, photographs are often shown as a body of multiple images. One of the most crucial things to keep in mind when showing a body of work is how this group of images is edited, and then how it is...

Considering the current climate and how active picture-taking isn’t necessarily at the forefront of everyone’s mind, it seems a good moment to clean your camera’s sensor or (if you can suspend taking pictures of your cat) send your camera to have a professional cleaning and tune-up. Obviously, there are...

Photo studios come in all shapes and sizes. If you are working with small subjects, there is no reason to rent a massive loft or build an addition onto your house to get the shots you need. In many of these cases, a functioning setup can take up as little space as a table. Like all things related to photography, tabletop studios can be as simple or complex as their creators require. For basic...

It was the year 2003, and a feature on my first digital camera changed the way I take pictures. I had purchased a Canon PowerShot G3 digital camera to use on a location scout for a film. I was one of the foolhardy who thought I’d never “go digital” but could not resist giving this model a try, which offered a relatively fast lens, a lot of new features, and actually kinda looked like a “camera.”...

Before computers and digital cameras, lens filters were among the indispensable tools filling every serious photographer’s bag.
