Ivy league Photographer Frank Horvat made a series of experimental photos for possible use as covers for a Parisian fashion magazine. We don't know about the fashion magazine, but this lovely picture of a woman named Ina made our cover. Horvat used a Leica M3, 50mm Summicron f 2 lens and Kodachrome Daylight. Exposure under open shade was 1 30 sec at f 2. 2. Wasted ingenuity In its attempt to combine behind-the-lens leaf shutters with lens interchangeability, the German camera industry unveiled...

The rule I followed when using my 35mm film SLR to take a handheld photo was to have the shutter speed at least the reciprocal of the focal length of the lens. That is, use 1 125 sec when shooting with a 100mm lens. But what about digital SLRs Should I use the reciprocal of the lens' real focal length or of the effective focal length (the full-frame equivalent) My Sony Alpha 100 has a 1.5X lens factor. Use the full-frame equivalent. The reciprocal rule was just an accident of the 35mm format,...

Available in shiny red, orange, and navy. It's made for a casual day of shooting, with room just for one extra lens and no shoulder strap....

Try this Set your portrait subject against a backdrop of any color, and lock in the main light-to-subject distance let's say 4 feet. Now, starting with the subject right against the backdrop, make a series of exposures, moving the light and subject away from the backdrop in 1-foot increments, always maintaining that 4-foot light-to-subject distance. In the resulting pictures,...

Square

In the studio, doubling the distance between light and subject cuts the amount of light striking the subject to a quarter of its intensity. That's the inverse-square law and in terms of exposure, it's a complete no-brainer If you move the light away from your subject, the subject darkens, and to compensate you must adjust exposure settings or crank up light output. But the inverse-square law has a few not-so-obvious implications. It can, for example, cause unexpected exposure inconsistencies to...

Digital Toning And Tinting

The term black-and-white can be misleading. Photographers have long employed a variety of techniques to add tints and color tones to monochromatic images. In the traditional darkroom, these are done with chemicals such as platinum, selenium, or sepia toner. With digital, toning can be applied visually before the final print is made. Moreover, you're not restricted to the effects of specific chemicals but free to use tones of any color and intensity. If you use Photoshop CS3, you can apply the...

The Fullframe Decision

Another presumed advantage of using full-frame lenses on APS-C cameras is that the smaller sensor is using only the central sweet spot of the image circle, thereby providing sharper images with less light falloff at the edges. In Pop Photo Lab tests, though, the sweet spot is proving a mythical beast. It may have held true for older legacy lenses, but we now see very similar SQF numbers for full-frame lenses tested at full-frame and APS-C sizes. And the better digital-only lenses perform on a...
