Everything we do here starts with the photographic image.

The image came first. That is where my fascination still lies.

I am quite happy with my Nikon D40, and have not outgrown it yet, I fear, although I am trying. There are things that the D40 cannot do (auto-focus with lenses that are not AF-S), and I have relied on AF to help my tired eyes for years. I have tried to manual focus my 50mm AF lens, and I can get close... sometimes. The D40 cannot bracket shots - but I could change settings myself (puff, puff, perspire) and help it along to create files for HDR processing. The ISO range is more limited than I would...

Imaging expert and award-winning author Deke McClelland presents his list of the top 40 features in Photoshop - one each week, and he's not quite done yet (there is a contest for folks who would like to guess the next one). He does more than simply name the feature - he gives a quick tutorial on how to use it.

These are features included in CS3 and CS4 - not the new Photoshop 5 being announced April 12th. Thought I could use a brush up on the "old...

Maru is a Scottish Fold cat who lives in Japan with housemates who take photos and videos of his daily activities - nice photography and funny videos. Video is required to show certain behaviors performed by Maru - such as shoving his body into boxes, bags, glasses, etc. Watch those hind feet as they splay outwards behind him when he dives headfirst into an empty box.
