We all have an inner street photographer, whether it be a hidden urge or a full-blown passion. In this Nikon-sponsored video, documentary photographer Nina Berman discusses her approach, on the roads and avenues of New York City, to this style which demands so much instinct, quickness, and versatility:
There is much confusion among new photographers as to which format, JPEG or RAW, is best to use. The problem is there’s no one correct answer to the dilema. To be able to know when to use either of the formats, it’s best to have a solid understanding of each of their drawbacks and advantages. The following article will explore both sides of shooting in either RAW and JPEG image formats.
Here’s a rare look at the making of a cover for the Macworld Magazine done by Peter Belanger – a photographer who has worked with Apple for years. In order to fit in a lot of information into a short amount of time, Belanger set up his 5D to collect timelapse footage of the project.
If you’ve ever wondered how the inside of a high-end printing studio operates, Miller’s Lab - America’s largest professional printing lab – gives us just such an opportunity in this video from Chris Marquardt.

Wedding photography is a difficult genre to summarize, simply because each wedding is different. In other forms of photography, such as landscape or studio portraiture, you can be pretty sure what equipment you will need to get the job done.
Over my nearly twenty years of teaching university photography classes, I’ve come to discover that one area that students often have the hardest time mastering is depth of field. Whereas beginning students usually manage to work well with their cameras in manual mode, which forces them to make their own selections of apertures and shutter speeds, they often seem to overlook using a limited area of focus to create more striking images.
In photography, we often try to capture a scene with a unique perspective to either show the world how we see it or just to show them a perspective that they’ve never considered before. This difference in point of view can make a huge impact on an image. Take, for example, the image below. The building looks like it was built at an angle, but after a moment of contemplation, it’s obvious that the photo is simply taken parallel with the slanted street:
