    by Jaron Schneider on 15th October 2021 at 20:03

    Photographers and editors regularly get overlooked when it comes to a wide range of products.

The First Day in Greenland, July 2003 The 40km-long Ilulissat Icefjord spread out below us. We glided over countless icebergs that had run aground at the end of the

  • The Camera Industry is Trapped: Demand is There, But Products Aren’t
    by Jaron Schneider on 15th October 2021 at 17:25

    The camera industry suffered a massive blow at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, but began to recover just in time for the global supply chain to collapse. Very few want to openly discuss this problem, but the industry is currently in a tough spot. This fact has likely been obvious to those who have

    Some of the earliest photographic portraits taken in America were recently discovered in an unheated shed on Long Island. The historically significant find contains photographs from some of the first experiments with the daguerreotype process.

  • We Are Lady Parts: A New Way to Tell Stories About Bands
    by Mark Dunsmuir on 14th October 2021 at 22:00

    We Are Lady Parts, the story of an all-Muslim-female punk band in London, is a groundbreaking collaboration between creator Nida Manzoor and cinematographer Diana Olifirova.

  • The Four Seasons of the Little Egret
    by Guest Poster on 12th October 2021 at 16:31

    As an amateur bird photographer, I often asked myself what is so special in birds, and why many people are so attracted by them. The answers to these questions are not unique and likely involve subjective feelings and personal motivations. Some are simply attracted by the fact that birds are challenging and fascinating subjects. Others may enjoy spending some time outdoors in close contact with nature, regardless of the possibility of getting any shot at all. Still, others may think of birds as excellent subjects due to their behavior and plumage color.

    by Nasim Mansurov on 8th October 2021 at 02:37

    With its “ProArt” series, ASUS has been targeting the creative field with all kinds of high-quality computer parts and accessories. Its monitor line-up is quite well-known by now, with everything from beginner-level IPS displays all the way to high-end monitors for color-accurate work. Ever since I reviewed the ASUS ProArt PA278QV, I have been curious about how well the high-end ASUS monitors measure up for serious post-processing needs, so when I found out that ASUS released its newest ProArt PA32UCG monitor, I wanted to give it a shot. With its $5K price tag, this monitor is by no means cheap, so let’s see what it has to offer, especially when compared to its competition.

    by Spencer Cox on 26th September 2021 at 03:20

    There’s no real upper limit to how large a camera sensor or film can be. Full frame cameras are smaller than medium format digital, which itself falls behind most medium format film - and so on. At the high end of the scale are Ultra-Large Format (ULF) film cameras.
