Oldies but Goldies The quest we set was quite straightforward: to expolore the performance of some old Nikkor lenses on a modern DSLR (a D700). A supreme advantage of the Nikon system is that older lenses will still (mainly) connect to a modern camera and provide a certain amount of functionality as well.

Shadowing - and Other Revolutionary Ideas For Speedliting As a professional, I have evolved to the point where I shoot Speedlites almost exclusively. My bulky monolights and heavy studio packs now collect dust. Speedlites are light, fast, powerful, and smart. I appreciate the speed and convenience of being able to wirelessly control any number of them from the back of my camera.

Photo Quote: As I became aware that all things have unique spatial and temporal qualities which visually define and relate them, I began to perceive the things I was photographing not as objects but as events. Working to develop my skills of perceiving and symbolizing these event qualities, I discovered the principle of opposites. When, for example, I photographed the smooth, luminous body of a woman behind a dirty cobwebbed window, I found that the qualities of each event were enhanced and the universal forces which they manifested were more powerfully evoked. - Wynn Bullock
