Dslr Video Truths

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH1 is nothing short of revolutionary, catching the big boys (Canon, Nikon, Sony) off-guard. HD video with continuous AF, coupled with a great lens and a very affordable price, makes this camera hard to resist. It's reminiscent of the furor that Minolta created in the early 1980s when it introduced autofocus, with Nikon and Canon struggling to launch their own. I'm surprised you don't give the Panasonic the kudos it deserves. Mike Wiederkehr Editors' note You'll find...

Fix Distortion

If your shots of buildings look like they're falling towards each other, or your images seem to squish or expand in the middle, either your lens or your angle of view may be at fault.

Photojournalist On How To Catch A Surprising Scene

PHOTOGRAPHY IS like a muscle that needs plenty of exercise. Slack off, and your creativity may fail you. Washington, DC-based editorial photographer Stephen Voss (www. stephenvoss.com) learned this by heart early in his career. Dragging himself out of bed at 5 a.m. each day during a workshop he was taking with the nature photographer John Shaw, he mentally (and with a silent grumble) repeated his teacher's mantra Don't be late for work. He has never forgotten that lesson. People think they can...

Makes The Shot

The New York Daily News puts on a Golden Gloves tournament, and this is one of the preliminary fights before the finals in Madison Square Garden. The earlier fights take place in smaller venues like gyms, schools, and churches wherever they can set up the ring and get a few hundred people in. Golden Gloves is the primary national amateur boxing tournament. It's a good way for people to develop and then possibly turn pro. Q. Is this part of a larger project A. It was just something that I did...

Not only is this 10,000 gem the priciest lens we've ever tested, it's the fastest one made and the first manual-focus we've had on our bench in years. A full-framer, it scales up to 67mm on the Leica M8 and M8.2. Its two huge aspheric elements are made of ground and polished (not hybrid or molded) glass. Clad in anodized matte-black aluminum, it weighs more than the M8 enough to tip the whole rig forward and the barrel blocks a fraction of the viewfinder. A telescoping lens shade is built in....

Three Techniques For Arresting Shadows

SHADOWS LEND visual interest and drama to your photos, and they're easy enough to find or make wherever you happen to be. Here are three ways to take familiar shapes beyond the ordinary. 1 Create soft and abstract silhouettes. Frosted glass adds another dimension to flat silhouettes. With your subject backlit, you can get an eerie and surreal shadow. In this photo, the blue tint and the model pushing up against a window gives the impression of a person trapped in ice.

Widen Your View

Regarding Michael Kolodner's complaint that he can't fit his family in a group shot at 18mm with a Nikon D40 (Letters, June 2009), 30 years ago I faced a similar dilemma with my Nikkormat FT2 and 50mm f 2 lens. The solution was a 25-50mm Nikkor, which opened up wide-angle photography for me. With my D70 and 18-70mm f 3.5-4.5 kit lens, a Sigma 10-20mm f 4-5.6 gave me the wide view I needed. In both cases, the trouble wasn't the film or sensor format. I just had to explore a new way of seeing...
