Little Bits of Advice


At this magazine, we have a term for our own
tendency to try to tell you everything you need
to know about every aspect of photography:
The Pop Photo Answer. Read this months
Tech Talk (page 30) on how fash is measured
for The Pop Photo Answer at its best.
But while our annual Big How-To Issue
always seems to show us at our most encyclopedic, this year the editors decided to focus
on just a handful of really cool photo projects that any photographer
can doand everyone should try at least once. Youll fnd a few of these
in our HOW section and more in the feature on page 57. (Just forgive us
for the cover featuring a photographic technique, X-ray, that you may
never be able to do. You can learn, though, how commercial and editorial
pro David Arky makes X-ray his own in Creative Thinking, page 37.)
In another rebellion against the Pop Photo Answer, I asked Arky and a
few other photographers whose work we love to give us their best tips or
techniquesin 140 characters or less. And the length of a tweet was all
these pros needed. Whether I am shooting an X-ray or conventional still
life, I always make a sketch to help clarify the composition and palette
of my picture, said Arky, whose T
witter handle is @david_arky.
Said landscape shooter Rodney Lough Jr., Move left, move right, a
mere seven inches at a time. When you can see the forest for the trees,
youve got it. Snap the shutter! Ever the maximalist, he sent more.
Heres one: Patience rewards those who wait for the wind to stop. The
not-so-patient will have leftand you will be alone when the shutter is
snapped. You can fnd him on T
witter @rodneyloughjr.
Use all your senses to take a picture. Close your eyes. Hold your
subjects hand. Listen carefully. Smell all around. Then open your eyes,
advised portraitist George Lange (@langestudio). He added another
portrait how-to: Focus on one point. Let your subject walk into that spot
and away. Then have them come so close they can lick your lens.
Sports shooter Brad Mangin (@bradmangin) has Americas pastime in
mind: A clean background, pretty light, great facial expression, and peak
action are all needed in one frame for me to love a baseball photograph.
So hooked am I now on these mini tutorials that Ive decided to start
a new hashtag, #PopPhotoTips, on our T
witter feed, @PopPhoto. Look for
more brief advice from pros there, and tweet your own back at us using
that tag. But never fearwell still
always have The Pop Photo Answer.

NEWSSTAND David Arkys X-ray of a


Canon EOS 1D X with 50mm f/1.4 EF
lens exemplifies the Big How-To. But see
p. 57 for stuff you can actually do.

SUBSCRIBER The same camera,


now fitted a tripod-mounted Sigma

Nikons new flagship

FOR THE first update to its

limits in sensitivity and speed.
Nikon says the D4s newly
developed sensor, a 16.2MP
full-frame CMOS imager,
improves on the D4s dynamic
range; the expanded sensitivity
now reaches an astonishing
ISO 409,600. The battery life is
improved, lasting up to about
3020 shots versus the D4s 2600,
and Nikon modified the mirror

mechanism to reduce vibrations


from mirror slap. The new
EXPEED4 processor can churn
out 200 continuous shots (with
autoexposure and autofocus) at
a blazing 11 frames per second,
up from the D4s 10 fps.
But Nikon didnt fix what
wasnt broken: The 91,000-pixel
RGB 3D Color Matrix Metering
and 51-point AF system from
the D4 remain untouched.

a challenge processing

With no electronic

FLASH MOD
PHOTOGRAPHY IS ALL about light, and when the sun doesnt

give you enough, you bring your own. But not all light is created
equal, so how do you make it do what you want? These flash
modifiers will help make your light softer, reach farther, change
color, or simply just look better.

Gary Fong LightBlade Diffuser LB-01 $35

This inexpensive modifier for shoe-mounted flash units attaches with a


hook-and-loop fastening strap and softens your strobes powerful blast.
It flips up or down to act as a bounce or shoot-through diffuser.

Rogue Safari Pop-Up Flash Booster $35

Designed for the built-in flash on APS-C Canon and Nikon DSLRs, the
Safari claims to extend the range of your cameras flash, useful with
lenses longer than 100mm. It mounts to the cameras hot-shoe.

Spinlight 360 Gel Collection $40

These gels work with the Spinlight 360 system to color the light from
your flash unit. Included are 20 gels, two clear disks, and a clear storage
case that doubles as a modifier when filled with translucent objects.

RayFlash Universal RingFlash Adapter $140


Ring flashes are excellent (but expensive) tools for portraits, flattering
faces with even lighting. If youre on a budget and have a regular hotshoe strobe, this RayFlash unit can convert it into a diffused ring light.

STARRY
NIGHT
A reader looks up
and shoots for the stars

IT WASNT hard for Douglas Croft, 55,


to convince his shooting buddy to
drive up to the ancient bristlecone
pine forest outside Big Pine, CA, to
capture the night sky. At the Patriarch Grove in the White Mountains,
altitudes reach as high as 11,000
feet, and primordial trees dot the
stark landscape. I wanted something
natural for a foreground, Croft says.
These twisted, gnarly trees are so
old and uniqueperfect to showcase
the ancient light of the Milky Way.
So the fanance manager from
San Jose, CA, affxed an 1116mm
AT-X Pro DX Tokina lens to a tripodmounted Nikon D7000. With the lens
set to 13mm, his exposure (20 sec at
f/2.8 and ISO 3200) was fast enough
to keep the stars from trailing but
slow enough to reveal them. And his
composition? A clear winner in a
strong feld. Matthew Ismael Ruiz

An Alaskan photographers picture window

MARK MEYER (9)

WHEN MARK MEYER and his


wife moved to Anchorage from
California in 2007, it took a year
to find just the right house. With
its hand-hewn log siding and
old sash windows, the 100-yearold home stood out among the
hastily developed citys oil-boom

surroundings. And ever since


the couple moved in, the unique
characteristics of their two
bedroom windows caught the
photographers eye. They have
a surprising range in the winter,
from tessellated ice when its
frozen outside to fog with the

humidity, Meyer explains.


A snapshot taken with his
iPhone in the fall of 2012 quickly
grew into an ongoing series, An
Alaska Window, with images
captured roughly every few
days and uploaded to Tumblr.
Even though the series now

encompasses more than 100


photos, all taken from the same
window, very few look alike.
As Meyer began to take his
project more seriously, he
experimented with technique
and equipment. He shot not just
with his phone but with cameras
of all sizes, from a K.B. Canham
4x5 to a Nikon D800 to a Fujifilm
X-E1. Taking into account the
weather and small changes in
the window and the landscape,
he varied his creative approach

capturing a blur of windswept


trees or the view through a
condensation handprint.
The limits were, in a way,
what made the project most fun.
My yard isnt special, and its
not particularly active, Meyer
saysa fence-hopping moose
or a moth near the window sash
were equally exciting. His favorite
photos are those that include
a view of the actual window
frame, lending a reminder of the
projects literal context.

WorldMags.net

For Meyer, the work spurred


a return to a contemplative
form of photography, something
hes rarely had time for amidst
the fast pace of his editorial
assignments. His goal is to edit
and print a selection to show in
galleries. Its brought me back
to the fundamentals, and its
also made me appreciate the
mundane, he says. Looking
out a window is one thing, but
photographing it gives you a way
to notice it.

Whats your technique for

JONATHAN LEVINE (TAKEN AT THREE LIVES & COMPANY BOOKSTORE)

Who was the first writer you


ever photographed?
The first time was in 1971 at a
reading that Allen Ginsberg was
giving at New York University. I
was prepared to take a picture
with my Leica and someone
passed me a note saying, I am
a German journalist and my
camera is broken. Please meet me
at the break. I started working
with him regularly: He would
give breezy interviews with all
sorts of people in the arts and I
would take my picture, and we
would file the story together. But I
consider my first literary portrait
to be the picture that I took of the
poet W.H. Auden in 1972 at his
home on St. Marks Place.

Youve shot New Yorks 92nd


Street Y poetry reading series
for 25 years. What intrigues
you about this job?
I took up photography when I
went on a wildlife safari in East
Africa. But literature was my first
love, so it just felt very natural
to me. I never imagined when I
started out that it would lead me
back to literature. At 92Y, I have
had the opportunity to photograph
hundreds of writers. I try to make
the most of limited time backstage
to get a good portrait.

Is there an author whom you


shoot frequently?

I was very late in coming to


digital for my portraits. I finally
switched five years ago from
my Leicas to the Canon EOS 5D
Mark II. My standard lens is the
24105mm f/4L Canon EF zoom.
I have always used a 105mm
as my standard headshot lens
because I like being close to
my subjects. One thing about
shooting digital is that I can show
people photographs during the
session. At first I wondered if
that would make them too selfconscious, but they really like
participating in the process.

Do you have a favorite portrait


that you have taken?
No, I am awestruck by all the
writers I photograph. When you
are photographing someone,
they seem beautiful to you.

What of your own authorship?


One thing about my profession is
that a writer might spend years
doing a book and a photographer
spends an hour or two taking a
portrait, so I have found the need
to pull my work together. I did
a book several years ago, and I
have a traveling exhibition. Last
year I sold my first stamp to the
U.S. Postal Service, a photo of
Joseph Brodsky.

from the eye of an artist. And as


Suzanne Trottier discovered, one
great picture can turn a painter
into a committed photographer.
Traveling to Ireland for her first
Mentor Series trek in 2008, this
resident of Portsmouth, NH, had
absolutely no experience with her
equipment. Until then, shed used
photography mainly as a basis for
her paintingsmostly landscapes,
still lifes, and portraits of animals.
It was my first time using a
DSLR camera, she says. I had
everything to learn.
Everywhere in Ireland that she
looked, she saw pictures waiting
to be taken: magical green
landscapes, with rainbows,
lonely trees, stone walls, and
ruins. On one particularly
windy, misty day in September,
the trekkers stopped along a
road. Others were drawn to the
landscape, with its rolling hills,
castle, sheep, and view of the

ocean, but Trottier was drawn to


two horses she had spotted in a
field. I got off the bus first, so I
was first to approach the horses,
she says. I loved the wind in their
manes. They were still curious.
She fired off three exposures
this the only one with both horses
looking at the camera. I wasnt
thinking much, she recalls. I
find that spontaneity works better
with animals in general.
With treks to Egypt, Switzerland,
Lake Como, and China now
under their belt, Trottier and her
husband Tim Parker have no plans
to stop photographing. But for
Trottier, the first trip to Ireland
was special. I fell in love with
photography on that trek, she
says. It became my passion, and it
still is.

REGARDING THE review of the Nikon


Df in your March issue, comparing
a couple of features of the $2,747 Df
to Nikons $6,000 D4 is fine. But how
could the article be complete without
comparing the Df to the Nikon D800?
Its only about $50 more than the Df,
and in my opinion a near-runaway
current-day seller, with a 36MP
sensor?

EDITORS NOTE: Despite their similarity in


price, the DF and D800 have such different
sensor resolutions (16.2MP vs. 36.3MP)
that we dont see this as a fair comparison.

complaint (Letters, April) on not being
able to find frame sizes and mats that
fit digital images. I do my own with
Nielsen aluminum sectional frames
so I can mix and match sizesand
board from Blick or an art supply
store. A Logan mat cutter is about
$100 and stores easily in a closet, and
32x40 board is about $15. I buy glass
by the box from the local glass store,
and for odd sizes like my photograph
of the Tregurtha, the longest ship on
the Great Lakes, I cut the mat and
glass to fit. A glass cutter, less than $4,
and a T-Square, less than $10, make
it all pretty easy. The expensive item
is a dry mounting press, but you can
sometimes find access at schools, or
just have that bit done commercially.

EDITORS NOTE: The dimensions of the

Flash head

How to read those


electronic fash specs

WESLEY FULGHUM (2)

HOW POWERFUL is your flash unit?

And how does the one youre


considering buying compare? We
often get asked for help with this.
Here are the major methods of
rating flash oomphand their
various imperfections.
Guide number (GN): Probably
the most confusing spec, in part
because it was never meant to
rate flash output. GNs original
function was to set the correct
f-stop for proper flash exposure
at a certain distance or vice versa.
Its the arithmetic product of the
two factors: You divide the GN
by one factor to get the other.
So with a flash with a GN of 80
placed 10 feet from your subject,
you would use an aperture of f/8
(80/10 = 8); at 20 feet, f/4.
The earliest electronic flash
guns were strictly manualmost
30 POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY MAY 2014

From the
No Free
Lunch Dept.:
A zooming
flash head
set to cover
a longer lens
will provide a
higher guide
number, and
hence allow
greater flash
distance
but the flash
may be
inadequate
in angular
coverage.

featured GN dials or sliders that


showed, at a glance, the correct
f-stop for the distance. Flash
units with a higher GN for a given
film speed clearly had more
output than those with lower GN,
so it became a de facto measure
of flash powerand remained
so with the advent of automatic
flash units that vary output.
But GN tells you nothing about
flash coverage: A flash unit rated
GN 80 that covers the angle of
view of a 28mm lens is more
powerful than one of the same
GN than covers only a 50mm
lens. It varies with ISO, so you
must compare GNs at the same
ISO. And while ISO 100 is usually
a standard, some manufacturers
give GNs at other ISOs.
Then there is confusion about
linear measurementsome
manufacturers give GNs for
meters rather than feet. (Rough
conversion: Multiply a GN in

WorldMags.net

meters by 3.333 to get it in feet.)


Filters, diffusers, and other light
modifiers will affect the GN.
Zooming flash heads add another
variable; a flash with a GN of,
say, 100 for 28mm coverage will
typically have a GN of about 160
with the flash head zoomed to
100mm coverage. And sensor
format has a bearing here: A flash
that covers 18mm for APS-C will
cover about 28mm for full frame.
Beam candle-power seconds
(BCPS): Used by several makers of
studio flashes, this spec rates the
actual output as measured by a
meter, and so is often considered
the most accurate measure
of flash power. ISO and linear
measurement units make no
difference to a BCPS rating, but,
as with GN, the size, shape, and
color of a reflector or modifier
will change this measurement.
Watt-seconds (Ws): Measuring
actual energy (1 Ws = 1 watt
sustained for 1 second), this
spec, used on many studio
strobes, seems like it should be
the most precise. Actually, it has
essentially no bearing on flash
outputits simply a measure
of how much energy can be
stored in the flashs capacitor.
The shape and efficiency of the
flash tube, color and shape of the
reflector, and all the other factors
that can mess with GN and BCPS
also make Ws a pretty imprecise
measuring unit.
Our advice? Always make sure
youre comparing kumquats to
kumquats and pomegranates to
pomegranates when deciding on
flash units. Dont sweat small
differences in flash output
just focus on the important
stuff: ease of use, build quality,
accessories available, and, for
TTL shoe-mount units, the
compatibility of the flash with
your particular camera(s).

RETIRED

On a November
morning during a
24-day photo safari
put together by Joseph
Van Os, we landed
on the beach of South
Georgia islands St.
Andrews Bay, home
to more then 300,000
king penguins.
Walking the beach, I
saw the chicks were
all in groups, like a
nursery.There were
usually some adults
with them, and I
wanted to capture
them together. By
9 a.m., 6070 mph
katabatic gusts blasted
sand across the beach,
and we had to leave.
What a memorable
experience.

Turn industrial X-rays into something fun
WHEN YOU see really cool X-ray

Thats not going to happen,


says an amused Arky, pointing
out that in the U.S. these machines are tightly regulated. No one
is allowed to X-ray other people
unless its medically necessary.

They're just that: from a skeleton.

Still, we thought you might

makes these amazing photos.

salvo of this months big how-to
feature (page 57)we asked him to
explain how he uses heavy-duty,
industrial-grade cameras for his

files. When Arky began making


X-ray photographs almost 20
years ago, he realized that while
low-voltage devices might be
fine for things like flowers,
many other subjects required
X-ray equipment found in heavy
industry such as aerospace.
Arky forged a relationship with
technicians at an industrial lab
(whom he regards as creative
collaborators) to gain access to
these devices. I learned there are
many kinds of X-ray cameras,
but I work with five that best suit
my needs, he says. They are
infinitely more powerful than a
dentists X-ray.
In the shot on the previous page
of a Canon EOS-1D X and Sigma
50500mm f/4.56.3 APO DG OS
HSM lens that he made for Popular
Photography, Arky took numerous
exposures to get the best-looking
reveal of camera and lens parts.
His final image is a composite of
four shots. The first step is just
to feel the object and get a sense
of whats inside, he says. You
weight the exposure based on the
38 POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY MAY 2014

heft and orientation of the object.


Relying on notes from hundreds
of previous X-rays, he selects a
voltage and exposure time to
serve as his base exposure. After
processing the film and reviewing
the results, he generally ups the
time or voltage to gradually find
the best look for the subjects guts.
The process is simple, but not
always easy, because X-ray film
is a bit imprecisethe reveal isnt
always what he had imagined.
Its a lot of experimentation, he
says, I made four exposures to get
one shot. He and his retoucher
finally scanned and assembled the
composite pieces, before adjusting
color and contrast for the whole.

jargon, the

Arky faces a creative challenge


in balancing the contrasting
densities of a subjects interior
and exterior. Many materials
look more dense along the edges
than in the center. Similarly, this
zooms housing is more dense
than its hollow interior, while in
X-rays, ironically, glass appears
the most opaque of almost all
materials.
Despite his many years of X-ray
imaging, Arky never tires of it.
Every time I learn something
new, and it always rekindles that
a-ha! feeling you experienced
when you processed your very
first roll of black-and-white film.
Laurence Chen

SUPPORT A LONG LENS BY THE LENS

THAT TRIPOD COLLAR on your big, heavy telephoto or tele-zoom lens isnt just for
affixing the lens to a tripod. It can also help save you from some very expensive grief.
If you carry a camera with a big lens via a strap mounted to the camera body, the weight
of the lens can bend or even break the cameras lensmount flanges. Its much better to
carry the rig on a strap with a tripod-mount fitting (such as a BlackRapid) attached to
the lens collar. (Some very large lenses have actual neckstrap lugs for the same reason.)
Another nice thing about the collar: its tripod platform can be positioned so as to rest on
the palm of your left hand when youre using the (correct) under-the-lens grip, for stable
handheld shooting. Is the tripod collar an extra-cost accessory for your lens? Buy it!

FILM IN LIGHTROOM

Plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom can be great, but they can also
be frustrating since LR has to make a TIFF, costing you RAW flexibility.
To avoid going to a plug-in when you want to apply a more basic effect
such as an analog film simulation, try VSCOs Film 05 in LR 4 or 5. Load
the presets onto your system and select your camera brand, then the
film type you need. Next go to VSCO Film Toolkit set to choose from
modification presets. You can use those to go easier on the grain, say,
or bring back detail in the shadows.

SIX RAW TIPS

IF YOU have Adobe Photoshop,


you already have a great RAW
converter on your hands in the
form of Adobe Camera Raw.
Because it maintains feature
parity with Lightroom, its new
tools keep piling up. But because
its interface hasnt had an
overhaul in a long time, you may
not know a lot of them are there,
42 POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY MAY 2014

and even if you do, you may have


some trouble locating them.
Getting familiar with the
intricacies of ACR can be especially important if you dont like
the RAW software that came with
your camera (or if it didnt come
with any). And it can be even
more important if you dont use
an application like Lightroom,

How to use Adobe Camera

COMPLEX

Phase One Capture One Pro/


Express, or Apple Aperture to
organize and process your RAW
files. So follow along to make
sure youre getting the most out
of Photoshop CCs version of this
stalwart converter. Even if you
use it all the time, youll likely
pick up something helpful.
Debbie Grossman

Tip 1

WorldMags.net

If you double-click on a
RAW file in Bridge, the
program will, by default,
run ACR within Photoshop.
To avoid opening that app
if it isnt necessary (or tying
it up if you need to work
on another image), run
ACR through Bridge. Go to
Bridges Preferences, then
check the box for DoubleClick Edits Camera Raw
Settings in Bridge. Click
OK. If you prefer to open
RAW files in Bridge only on
demand, you can highlight
your file or files and then
type Ctrl (Command) + R.

Tip 2

In Creative Cloud, youll no longer find


resolution options under the Crop tool.
Insteadand even betteryou can create
custom presets for output. Directly below
your image youll see a summary of the
settings by which your image will be
processed when you open it or save it.
Click on these, your Workflow Options, to
adjust. To make a preset for web sharing,
for example, set your Color
Space to sRGB, and choose
an appropriately small Image
Size. You can adjust Output
Sharpening here, too. When back
in ACR, right-click or Ctrl+click
on the Workflow Options to
choose the preset you need.

Print Preview Now you can soft proof


via ACR. In Workflow Options, set a paper
profile and intent under Color Space.

Tip 3

One of ACRs fun (and useful) features in


CC is the interactive histogram. Instead
of guessing which slider represents which
range of tones, you can just click and drag
on the histogram itself. Grab the midtones
and drag them right to brighten your
image; its respective slider will move
accordingly. If necessary, do the same with
Shadows, Highlights, Whites, and Blacks.

Tip 4

Spot removal was never one of


Camera Raws strong suitsif you
had something long, like a telephone
wire, to remove, you had to keep
adding spots. But now you can paint
on spot removal. Type B to access the
tool, or just find it in the toolbar. Use
the left and right bracket keys to
shrink or expand your brush to
a size slightly larger than what
you want to remove, and paint
the offending area out. Note
that the tools options now
include Feather; use this slider
to fine-tune your brush edge.
Type B again to exit the tool.

Adjust the Sample

After painting, youll still need to grab


the area, circled in green, and move it to
a sampling spot that works.

Tip 5

To reduce color noise in a new way,


head to the Detail panel. Zoom
in to 100%. After you make your
adjustments for Luminance and Color
noise reduction, minimize the colored
patchiness that sometimes occurs in
areas where there should be smooth
tone. Move the new Color Smoothness
slider to the right. If it desaturates too
much, pull it back to the left until the
effect is just barely noticeable.

Tip 6

The Radial Filter is a quick way to


focus an adjustment on a specific
circular or oval-shaped area. This
can be useful when you want to add
a vignette but dont want it centered,
or as a shortcut when you dont need
to paint on your selective adjustment.
Get it by typing J. Use the crosshairs
to draw a circle around the area you
want to affect, and move the central
red dot to reposition if necessary.
Adjust your feathering (or make any
other adjustment youd like), and
choose whether you want the Effect
to happen inside or outside the circle.

into something more magical,


the secret is simple: lengthen
your exposure times to a
full minute or more. Darren
Moore, a photographer
from Surrey, England, has
mastered this technique. As
you can see in his dozens of
hauntingly beautiful images
(www.darrenmoorephotography.
com), his seascapes are more
like dreamscapes, free of the
clutter, grime, and boring detail
of everyday scenes.
The cool thing here is that you
really can do this yourself. All it
takes is a camera that lets you
set long exposure times, a tripod
to hold your camera steady, and,
assuming you want to shoot in
daylightand not in the dead of
nighta neutral-density filter to
thread over your lens.
Neutral-density (ND) filters cut
the light reaching your cameras
image sensor or film without
affecting overall color balance.
They let you make accurate
daylight exposures that are
measured in minutes, not the
more usual fractions of seconds.
ND filters are calibrated
logarithmically, however, which
can lead to some confusion. An
ND filter that blocks 1 stop of
light, for example, is commonly
labeled 0.3; a filter that blocks 2
stops is labeled 0.6; and so on up
the line. The maximum-strength
3.0 filter will dim down a scene
by 10 full stops.
You can buy screw-in ND
filters of different densities to fit
each of your favorite lenses, or
get a kit with a standard holder
(such as the Cokin) that works
with a variety of lens sizes.
Variable ND filters, such as those
from Hoya and Tiffen, let you
dial in up to 9 stops of neutral
density.

COMPLEX

camera that allows bulb


settings, a sturdy tripod, and
neutral-density flters (with or
without a holder) for your lens. A
telephoto lens will give you a deep
working distance that lets you
shoot far from the waters edge.
Also, a remote shutter release will
let you fre the camera without
jogging it.

Step 2

Find the right beach. You will


want a sheltered location with
a gentle surf and a minimum of
swimmers in your background to
clutter it up.

Step 3

Wait for the right conditions.


Moore went early in the morning
of an overcast day to take
advantage of its soft light, hazy
horizon, and lack of crowds.

Step 4
C

To capture his
model as sharply
as possible Moore
used a Pixel
TW-282 wireless
camera trigger
(A). His 10-stop
72mm B+W Neutral
Density filter (B)
and Vanguard
Auctus Plus 283AT
tripod (C) allowed
the long 79-sec
exposure that
blurred the motion
of the surf.

WorldMags.net

Make your (long) exposures.


After mounting your rig and
composing the scene, ask the
model to hold absolutely still for
the duration of the exposures,
which could be a minute or more.
The pose should be natural,
have some visual interest, and
be easy to hold. You may want
your model to turn away from the
camera to avoid a blurred face.

Final Step

Finesse the scene in software.


Moore wanted to exaggerate the
dreamlike quality of the scene by
getting rid of background detail.
This included the horizon line,
which he eliminated by selecting
it with Adobe Photoshop CS6s
Marquee tool and applying a
Gaussian blur to the selection.

Howd you
WorldMags.netget started?

As a teenager in the early 1970s,


I was mainly about fast cars,
motorcycles, women, and getting
in trouble. Hoping to get me on a
different path, my father gave me
an old Argus rangefnder camera. It worked. I ended up with
a scholarship to Pratt Institute,
which I passed on because I didn't
want to drive from Long Island to
Brooklyn every day. My parents
said, Do something, so I went to
Manhattan and started assisting.
At one point I was working
for Hashi; Canon was one of his
clients. I showed someone from
the company my personal work
and they gave me some funding.
I used that to get the heck out of
New York. I had been exposed to
a lot of Ansel Adams, and, having grown up in New York, those
landscapes just blew my mind.
They looked like another planet to
me, and I had to go see them.
I experimented with shooting
tungsten flm in daylight, using
infrared, taking Ektachrome and
developing it in C41, reversing
things and using different types
of fltersit was all so much fun.
I was taking red, green, and blue
flters and using triple-exposures
and coming out with things that
looked like they were exposed correctly but were multiple exposures
on a single frame. That taught me
about learning the fundamentals
but doing my own thing.
Then I met my wife and I
dropped photography for 20 years.
We had our own design company,
doing images for the TV networks.

I was shooting landscapes and


always found myself in the worst

shoot; Caseys friend recommended I go to South Dakota.

How has your technique


evolved over the years?
Shooting storms is kind of a
hybrid of shooting a quiet landscape and a sports event: Compositions are constantly changing,
the lights changing, theres wind,
theres noise, theres a lot going
on and you have to stay focused.
I used a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1
when I started in 2009, which
wasnt the optimal camera for
storms. It was really limited to
landscapes, but I did get some of
my best shots that frst year, and
it was great for lightning strikes.

The next year I upgraded to a


Canon EOS 5D Mark II. I really
like live view for shooting storms
and landscapes. I come from a
view-camera and wet-darkroom
background, and composing in
live view looked like ground glass
to me. I dont understand why
people still use optical viewfnders for landscapes. Now I shoot
with two lenses: a 24105mm and
a 70200mm. You give up a bit of
sharpness with a zoom but you
can compose on the fyyou dont
have time to switch lenses or cameras because it all changes so fast.

WorldMags.net

Do you use flters?


Yup. I have two 5D Mark IIsone
thats modifed for full spectrum
(the IR and anti-aliasing flters
have been removed) and another
that is not modifed. I think,
Whats the environment look like?
Whats the light look like? Then I
choose how to flter based on
what I see. In a lower-contrast or
overcast situation without a lot
of directional light, Ill use the
body without the sensor flters. It
gives me the opportunity to add
screw-on flters to the lens. I can
block parts of the spectrum based

WorldMags.net

on the way the situation looks. I


dont like the camera manufacturer telling me how I should see
or expose. I like the freedom to
pick and choose the way I want
to do things. I also use flters with
digital the way I did when shooting black-and-white flm. Red
(25), green, and blue flters are
still important components in my
arsenal. If I want to darken a sky
Ill use a red flter or a polarizer.

Do you adjust on the fy?


When I drop my tripod, Im usually set up at 50mm f/8 and half

a secondand focused at infnity.


Sometimes you drive 500 miles
and drop your tripod and the
perfect composition happens the
second you drop it, sometimes a
half an hour later. I dont shoot
much. In a 10-day trip I might
fll up two 16GB cards, but I only
shoot sequentially if Im trying to
capture a lightning strike.
I dont use rules of composition.
The main thing is just what looks
good to me. A lot of my shots have
a horizon in them, which helps

everybody has to have their own

Why monochrome mode?


I shoot in RAW but in monochrome mode so I can see a preview of what Im shooting. Unlike
with a flm camera, I dont have

fle, all I do is take saturation and
turn it to 0 and it looks very, very
close to what I originally shot. Part
two is prints: My fnal product
and vision is the print. I print on
Epson Stylus Pro 9900 printers
using Epsons ABW driver. After all
the experimenting Ive found that
the ABW driver gives me the most
neutral black-and-white prints.

How do you prepare


for a shoot?
When I hear music I see colors,
and when I do photography most
times I see the picture in my brain
before I go out. I do a self-check
and see where Im at, what Im
looking to do, think of what I want
to capturewhats my goal? Like
that tornado shot: Before I went
on that trip I knew I wanted to
capture an iconic tornado. The Wizard of Oz made a big impact on me

a sudden I was standing in North
Dakota and theres this thing.

How do you deal with the


weather itself?
I found that a cotton washcloth
is the best way to keep rain off,
and Ive tried every kind of rain
gear. I have long hair and I wear a
beanie, which keeps the hair out
of my eyes, and when its pouring rain I put the beanie over the
camera to keep it dry.
Also that thing of truly focusing on my work, even though
there might be a lot going on
around me. Thats where storm
tour leader (and photographer)
Roger Hill, who I often go out with,
comes in. I have to stay focused
and enjoy the moment, not let it
pass with pressure to get a great
shot, but to really enjoy it. The
only human thing I listen for is
Roger saying, We gotta get the
hell out of here right now!

WorldMags.net

How close are


you to the storms?
Usually with a tornado, were
somewhere around a mile, mileand-a-half from it. Roger usually
thinks of an escape route. We
never get ourselves in a super
dangerous position, though we
have what he calls close encounters where we get right under
something, like a rotating cloud.
Its pretty safe though. I dont get
scared because its so amazing
what Im looking at. We can be
far, we can be close; every storm
is a little bit different. I see these
storms as living thingsIm taking a portrait of them.

TOM SMITH

hanks to an electronic ashs ability to produce instantaneous bursts of light lasting about 1/15,000
sec or shorter, most photographers can capture a moving subject with absolute sharpness in ways that
the human eye cant see. Tom Smith, a 15-year-old from Lytham, England, did just that when he set up
two off-camera accessory ashes in his Lancashire kitchen to capture this orange plunging into a sh tank.
While Smith timed the ash rings using his own reexes (and lots of trial and error), electronic ash trigger
kits make it much easier to photograph balloon pops, BB pellets ying through apples, or whatever else you
can dream up. These kits work with sound cues (like a balloons pop) or infrared beams with controllers that
let you ne tune ash rings to the millisecond in order to capture action at its most perfect peak.

You probably already have everything, or most everything, you need to make a
time-lapse sequence. Really, all you need is a tripod, a DSLR, and an intervalometer, says Andrew Geraci, who confesses to using a very cheap intervalometer with
his Canon EOS 5D Mark III and 15mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss ZE lens to make this timelapse of the Manhattan skyline. (See the full video at PopPhoto.com/time-lapse.)
An increasing number of DSLRs and ILCs have built-in intervalometers that allow
you to set the frequency and number of frames to be taken. If your camera lacks
this feature, you can connect an accessory intervalometer to most any DSLR.

You may already have everything you

built-in intervalometers.

A simple guideline: For slowmoving subjects, use longer intervals, for faster moving subjects,
shorter intervals. For a time-lapse
of changes to a tree over a month,
you might want to use an interval
of a full day. For an hours worth

ANDREW WATSON (CHAIRS)

Ditch the lens to get a


wildly different look

62 POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY MAY 2014

WorldMags.net

pinhole camera is as minimalist as photography gets: All you need


is a light-tight box with a tiny hole on the front, and something
light-sensitive fastened onto the inside rear of the box, and you can
take a picture. In the process, you will get weirdly beautiful results, including
innite focus from near to far (or, often more accurately, equal slight fuzziness
from near to far). Once you realize that there are no knobs, no ashing
lights, no buttons, dials, or digital displays to distract you, making pictures
becomes fun again rather than a technical chore, says Andrew Watson, who
made this photo of the beach in Brighton, England on Kodak Ektar 100.
You can make your own pinhole camera (out of practically anything), build a kit
camera, buy a ready-made camera, or, simplest of all, use the camera you already
have, whether lm or digital, SLR or ILC, with a pinhole body cap in place of a lens.

Paint with
Light

Apply light in broad strokes


to showcase your subjects

he popular technique called painting with light treats your cameras lm or sensor as a blank, black
canvas on which you paint in your subject by applying light something like the way artists apply paint
to a white canvas. One of the wonderful things about light painting, says Harold Ross, who painted
this idyllic scene, is that it can transform the mundane into something greater. Most light paintings are in
one of two styles. You can illuminate your subject with a handheld light source, applying light to bring out its
color, shape, texture, and dimensions. Or, you can turn your light toward the camera, and move it to create line
drawings, patterns, or even words that become your subjects. Light paintings can be done outdoors after dark,
or indoors in a darkened room, and your light source can be broad (LED panel) or focused (LED ashlight).

NIGHT LIGHTS Harold Ross used multiple exposures for his finished image, but you can
make successful paintings in long single exposures. In twilight, Ross made ambient-light
exposures for the water and background with a CamboWide RS body with Phase One P45+
digital back (A). In full darkness, he opened the shutter and painted with two attached 10x10inch LED panels (B), making separate exposures for each element. Later, he merged the
exposures in Adobe Photoshop CC.

Scout locations.

Practice the moves.


Perform a dry run, without opening
the shutter, to determine how long
it will take to apply the light, then
set an ISO and mid-range aperture
that will allow you to set that length
of time as your shutter speed.

Assuming youre going to paint your


scene with light (rather than make
WKHOLJKWLWVHOI\RXUVXEMHFW QG
an isolated subject that you can
approach and apply light from all
sides to bring out its dimensionality. Select locations with minimal
ambient light contamination.

WHAT IT TAKES

A monumental light-painted
photograph like this one takes
plenty of preparation and multiple exposures. But you can try it
on a smaller scale as long as you
have a dark subject.

Shop your closet.

Use a camera that lets you manually set long exposures, a tripod,
and a remote release. For painting
big scenes, use a large, soft light
and a portable battery to power it.
And wear black!

Shoot your scene..

Set up your gear.

For subjects like trees and water,


wait for a windless night, preferably one with a full moon to light
up your backgrounds. Go at least
an hour before nightfall so that
you can compose the scene and
set up your gear while you can
still see. Since histograms are
of limited use in night shooting,
consider tethering the camera to a
laptop; this can help you evaluate
and adjust the scenes exposure
as you paint. To add some extra
color to your composition, use
acetate gels over your light source.

Help party animals

ure, you could have a company haul in a boxy little photo booth for your
next party. Or, for about the same amount of money (or less), you can get
everything you need to set up a full-on portrait station worthy of your guests
fancy duds. As an added bonus, most of it is gear that will be useful in other types
of photographyand you may have all or most of it already. Our web editor, Stan
Horaczek, who set up these festive photo shoots, told us how.
A photo booth is a basic studio setup using a clean backdrop, a large light
source, and as many props as you allow. It gives your guests room for bigger group
shots and produces far better results than those charming-but-crummy photo strips.

Pick a camera.

Use a studio unit.

An old APS-C DSLR with a


kit lens is a great choice for a shoot
like this. The 18mm focal length
(28mm full-frame equivalent)
should be wide enough to cover
the entire backdrop from a few feet
away, and youll be at or around
f/11 to keep everyone in focus, so
no need for a fast lens.

Pour on the light.

WHAT IT TAKES

Shooting plenty of great


photo-booth pictures
requires great light; youll
need a studio strobe for

FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY is no
longer the sole province of glossy
magazines, as blogs and retailers produce and publish highly
stylized work. Even for a relatively
small operation such as the website Refnery29, which combines
lifestyle content with a designer
clothing store, producing a shoot
can require as many as eight
pairs of hands. The company

She hires the photographer, stylist, hair, and makeup,
and works with the fashion department to get the looks right. On set,
shes at the monitor, seeing that it
all comes together in the images.
zPotential challenge: Hiring.
Because the models in this story
are real people, she needed a crew
who made them feel comfortable.

Though the NX30s 20.3MP CMOS


sensor carries the same number of
pixels as its predecessors (as well
as that of Samsungs current top
rangefinder model, the NX300),
this new sensor has shallower
pixel wells intended to let more
light reach the photodiodes. As we
did with our tests of the Samsung
NX300 and Leica M, both of which
ship with Adobe Lightroom, we
processed the test results with
varying amounts of luminance
noise reduction applied and
found the best balance of noise
reduction and resolution for each
of the cameras ISOs in whole-stop
increments. This worked out to
25% noise reduction at ISO 100 and
ISO 200, 50% reduction at ISO 800,
and 75% reduction at ISO 1600 and
above. Some photographers may
feel that 75% noise reduction is too
much, so this shouldnt be seen
so much as a recommendation as
a starting pointyou can always
adjust it to your liking when you
process your own images.
With these noise-reduction
settings applied, the NX30 earned
an Excellent overall image quality
rating from ISO 100 through 400.
Thats the same result that the
NX300 got when we tested it for
the August 2013 issue, and one
full ISO step better than the NX20
tested in October 2012.
In our resolution test, the
Samsung NX30 captured 2560
lines per picture height at ISO
100, which is high enough for an
Excellent rating and a virtual tie
with the NX20s result. At ISO 400,
it dropped to 2530 lines. After that

for our top rating. Still, it
managed to turn in 2430
lines at ISO 6400. Resolution
drops more precipitously as
sensitivity increases from
there, though, finally landing at
2030 lines at the cameras top
sensitivity of ISO 25,600.
In our noise test, with the
stated settings, the NX30
held noise to a Low or better
rating up to ISO 3200. Thats
impressive enough, but
remember that its obtained
with 75% noise reduction.
With 50% noise reduction at
ISO 3200, the test result would
still be in the acceptable range
with a score of 2.9, just below
our cutoff for an Unacceptable
rating. These results leave the
NX20 in the dustits noise was
Unacceptable by ISO 1600.
We were also impressed at
how low noise stayed at ISO

100 through 400 with only 25%


noise reduction applied. Given
Lightrooms particularly good
noise reduction, there is minimal
loss of resolution at the 25%
setting. With no noise reduction
at all, the NX30 would have
gotten a Low rating at ISO 100
and an Unacceptable by ISO 800.
Nearly matching the results
of Samsungs NX300, the NX30
earned an Excellent rating for
color accuracy with an average
Delta E of 5.6remarkable,
and significantly better than
the NX20s Excellent-level
7.4. As always in our tests, we
click a neutral gray patch for
white balance during RAW
conversion. You should always
use a gray card when shooting
for critically accurate color.

if youre a fan of Samsungs


i-Function lens-based controls,
then you may give the NX30
a few extra points here. There
are three assignable buttons,
though the functions you can
assign are pretty limited. One of
those buttons defaults to Wi-Fi
activation, and we left it at the
default for the entire field test
to have that direct access to
wireless.
There are two command
wheels, but one of them
surrounds the pad used for
menu navigation. We prefer a
second command wheel toward
the top of the camera back,
where your thumb can more
easily reach it.
The EVF is quite nice, with a
fast refresh rate. We didnt find
ourselves angling it upward
much during our field-testing,
but if you like shooting while
looking down, this feature
could set the NX30 apart from
some other cameras. Weve
heard from some landscape
and portrait photographers who
really like to shoot that way,
and some portraitists say that
the disconnect created when
the subject cant look them in
the eye helps their subject gaze
into the lens more intensely. We
ended up getting more use out
of the articulated touchscreen,
whether to frame images at
awkward angles or just to fight
glare during playback by tilting
the screen.
Autofocusing is quite fast
for an ILC, but not the fastest
weve seen. The AF did a fine
job of keeping up with the
cameras burst speed of 9
frames per seconda noticeable
improvement over the NX20.
And with 28 JPEGs per burst, or
11 RAW, burst fans should have
an adequate number of shots
for most purposes. Also, unlike
the NX20, this camera will let
78 POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY MAY 2014

you access menus and controls


while it's clearing the buffer.
Samsung continues to do a
great job at implementing Wi-Fi
and NFC into its ILCs. The NX30
can push images to your phone
as you shoot, let you manage
all the most important camera
controls from your phone, and
give you a live view of what
your camera is seeing. Olympus
lets you control more esoteric
camera settings, but we were
pleased with what Samsung
offers, since it is particularly
easy to control the camera
remotely and share pictures
on the go. Plus, the NX30 uses
dual-band Wi-Fi, so it should
be able to deal with situations
in which you face a lot of radio
interference. For instance,
we saw the NX30 seamlessly
operated by a cellphone in
a demo at a trade showan
environment where Wi-Fi
connections usually fail.
Video shooters should be
pleased with the footage
from the NX30, which shows
relatively few artifacts, plenty
of detail, and nice-looking
colors. Theres an HDMI output
that allows a clean output
for recording to or streaming
through an external device.

Fans of
plastic
cameras
should take
note that
you can
get a Holga
29mm f/8
lens in the
NX mount.
We tried one
during our

and found

weve come
to expect
from Holga
images.

The Bottom Line


The Samsung NX30 is a
meaningful improvement over
its predecessor, the NX20. For
shooters who want a built-in
EVF, this camera is the best
option that Samsung offers.
Sonys upcoming Alpha 6000
will, we predict, provide stiff
competition for the NX30. In
demos of preproduction units,
that 24MP APS-C Sony has
wowed many with its fast AF
speed and OLED EVF. Fans of the
DSLR-style body design, though,
will note that that Sony doesnt

DESPITE THE growing popularity


of interchangeable-lens compacts,
Nikon continues to offer compelling entry-level DSLRs. Its latest,
the D3300, succeeds the D3200 we
tested in our August 2012 issue.
The pixel count of this new $647

Nikkor VR II lens) APS-C-sensor
camera holds at 24.2MP and the
metering and AF systems stay the

have increased to 5 frames per

reaches 1 stop higher, to ISO 25,600.

Nikon used a new sensor in the


D3300, and we saw it hit higher
levels of noise than the D3200 at all
sensitivities over ISO 100, earning it
an Excellent rating in overall image
quality from ISO 100 through 400
(the D3200 reached ISO 800).
This could refect the difference
in hardware, but it may also be due
to changes in the latest version
of Nikons View NX software that
ships with the camera, which we
use to convert RAW fles to TIFFs
in our tests. DxOMark.com, which
tests unprocessed RAW image fles,
rates the D3300s higher ISO performance above the D3200s.
In our resolution test, the D3300

WorldMags.net
noise test, the D3300 garnered a
Low or better rating up to ISO 400,
after which the noise increased
rapidly. While the T5i achieved a
Low or better rating up to ISO 800,
and didnt reach Unacceptable
noise levels until ISO 12,800, the
D3300 landed in Unacceptable
range by ISO 3200.
This may have more to do with
Nikons defaults for automatic
noise reduction in RAW conversion than the actual RAW sensor
output. But we regard the manufacturers default as its standard
for the camera and always use
the provided softwares defaults
for our tests. That said, one would
expect more noise here, since the
Nikon has signifcantly more pixels
packed into nearly the same APSC-sized sensor area.

this market segment, you have to


think about how much resolution
you really need. If you crop often
and severely, the D3300s extra pixels make a lot of sense. If you dont
usually crop much, then you might
get more out of the Canon.
In autofocus, the D3300s results
were very similar to its predecessors. At the brightest light level in
our test, the D3300 focused in less
than a half-second and remained
under 0.6 sec down to the brightness of a typical living room. At EV
0, the level of an average nighttime
scene, the D3300 still focused in
less than a second. At EV 1, the
lowest light for which the cameras
AF is rated effective, the speed
became more erratic but averaged
out to 1.16 sec. Canons T5i was
able to focus faster in bright and
medium light, but in dim lighting
the two cameras tied. Since the
D3300 is aimed at amateurs, we
think its AF results are plenty good
for the kind of use itll likely see.
With an average Delta E of 6.4,
the D3300 easily earned an Excellent rating in color accuracy, a test
that most current DSLRs ace.

In the Field
Though the D3300 is a bit smaller
than the D3200, the overall feel
and button layout is very similar.
The camera still feels quite stable
in the hand. Theres only one command wheel, so you must hold
down the exposure-compensation
button when in manual. Nikon
clearly assumes that most D3300
owners will use full auto or one of
the priority shooting modes. While
this may well be true, we still
prefer a camera that has two command dials, especially when you
can assign exposure comp to one
of them when in a priority mode.
Movie recording got an upgrade
to 1920x1080p at 60 frames per
second, from the D3200s 30 fps.
We expect that non-pros will be
plenty happy with the footage
82 POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY MAY 2014

from the D3300, which showed


lots of detail and no more artifacts
than one would expect from an
inexpensive DSLR.
Burst speed now meets our
criterion of at least 5 fps for amateur sports shooting. With JPEGs,
you can get upwards of 100 shots
before the buffer flls, likely the
result of D3300s newer Expeed 4
processor; with RAW you get 11
shots per burst. Thats down from
the D3200s 18, but by no means
shabby for a camera of this class.
If Nikon did one thing wrong, it
was omitting built-in Wi-Fi (same
with the Canon T5i). You can add
its optional WU-1a wireless mobile
adapter ($60, street) to transfer
images straight to your smartphone and control the D3300 from
the phone. The new camera costs
about $50 less than the D3200 did
when we tested it, taking some
monetary bite out of the equation.

In addition
to its lone
command
wheel, the
D3300 has
only one
memory card
slot. If you
want fancier
controls and
a second
card slot
youll have
to move up
to a pricier
DSLR body.

The Bottom Line


Nikons D3300 doesnt change too
much compared with the D3200
and thats mostly a good thing.
It captures tons of detail in still
images, serves up extremely accurate colors, and has enough power
to get great shots of any familys
high-school sports star.
Plus, Nikon put out a relatively
inexpensive 35mm f/2.8G lens at
the same time as the D3300. This
rounds out a series of inexpensive
primes that Nikon has offered in
recent years. It also signals a true
commitment to amateur shooters
and bolsters an already extensive
array of glass and accessories that
few ILC makers can match.
If youre torn between Nikon and
Canon and not invested in either
system yet, youll have to decide
whether Canons twisting, tilting
LCD trumps the D3300s fxed one,
and whether Nikons choice of
more noise for more pixels makes
a difference to you. From where we
sit, its a tossup.

TAMRON 150600MM F/56.3 DI VC USD

Canon APS-C bodies (900mm on


Nikon and Sony), the lens has a
removable tripod collar, lenshood,
and rubber cowl around its mount
to fend off the elements.
Among lenses with this much
telephoto reach, this Tamron is by
far the most compact and, at least
for short periods, hand-holdable.
At 4.5 pounds, it weighs about
half as much as Canons 600mm
f/4L, for example, and fully racked
out it measures about four inches
shorter. Its removable tripod collar
has finger notches that improve
the grip when handholding. That
said, it still requires at least a
monopod for extended use.
In the field, we liked the large,
ribbed zoom ring for its convenient
placement and easy, albeit
slightly uneven, turn. The zoom
lock, which confines the lens to
its contracted 150mm position,

The fullframe

prevented the zoom creep that can


occur when walking with the rig
on a neck strap (always support a
lens this size when carrying it on
the camerasee page 38). We really
appreciated the focus-limiter switch,
which has full and non-closeup
ranges. The latter, going from about
50 feet to infinity, worked well for
wildlife and sports.
On the Popular Photography optical
bench, the lens delivered Excellentrange SQF numbers at 150 and
200mm. At 300mm, the longest
setting our bench allowed, tested
performance dropped only one
notch into Very Good numbers.
Most other tele-zooms weve tested
have dropped a rating notch further,
into the Good range, at their 300mm
focal lengths. (These include the
Tamron 70300mm f/45.6 Di VC
USD and the Sigma 70300mm
f/45.6 DG OS.)

Our DxO Analyzer Version 5.3


tests found pincushion distortion
in the mid-Slight range at all focal
lengths, a significant improvement
over the uniform Visible-range
pincushioning of Tamrons
200500mm lens. Light falloff was
gone from the corners by f/5.6
at 150mm and f/8 at 600mm. At
300mm, we found no detectable
vignetting, a performance that
tops all of the earlier tested
tele-zooms at this focal length.
Tamrons VC mechanism helped
three testers to an average of 2.33
extra stops of handheld sharpness
versus without VC engaged.
The appeal of this lens for focalreach-hungry photographers is
obvious. Relative to others that
reach 600mm, its handling could
hardly be more user-friendly. And
that price! (The Canon 600mm
f/4L streets for nearly $13,000.)
Performance outstrips the closest
comparable tele-zooms. Plus, it
comes with Tamrons customized
version of the Silkypixs RAW
converter, which automatically
corrects for distortion, chromatic
aberration, and edge falloff in this
and every other Tamron SP-series
lens. Nice!

The leader of tripod head


design for over 45 years
creates a new revolutionary
Knobless ballhead.
Its called Knobless because
the traditional locking knobs
have been removed.
Equipped with our patented
(planetary) p-system,
ARCA-SWISS p is a unique
tripod head design that
combines precision, ease
of use, and a powerful,
concentric, uniform locking
force. Featuring our patented
gravitational force compensation, sudden camera
movements altering camera
position are prevented. The
ARCA-SWISS p is stylish,
precise and strong, yet
weighs under 10 ounces.
A hand of steel in a velvet
glove!

outstanding example of actionstopping with a high-speed shutter


is this photo of a woman at the
beach flying through the air, frozen
at 1/500 sec.

Our Gifted
Readers
Professionals
were not the only
photographers
featured in our
pages. Much like
today, we also used
appealing pictures
from our readers,
such as this Dutch
village scene
recorded by New Yorker Eugenia
Redka, an art teacher. She made
an exposure of 1/50 sec at f/6.5 on
daylight Kodachrome with a Kodak
35. Our editors admired the way
Redka handled the pattern and
various colors in this charming and
unpretentious shot.

Two-Faced Woman
Peter Gowland, noted for his
pin-up photos of young ladies
in bathing suits, altered his
approach to create this blackand-white harlequin effect.
He used a black background
and theatrical makeup on
model Barbara Osterman for
this unusual portrait. Gowland
shot with a 5x7-inch Marvel
view camera and a 14-inch
Commercial Ektar f/6.3 lens,

Outdoor Silhouette
Readers were encouraged to try
different approaches to their
personal photography, evidenced
by this short feature on taking
outdoor silhouettes. The key is to
expose for the sky for an extreme
underexposure of your subject.
Contrast can be enhanced by
printing the picture on highcontrast (Grade 4 or 5) paper.

BACKSTORY

New
Folk City
Morgan Silk captures a
steampunk Morris dancer
I DECIDED to explore British folk-

MORGAN SILK

lore traditions through portraits


at an event in Hastings, England,
an ancient seaside town. Theres
a May Day tradition called Jack
in the Green: Everyone dresses
up and they carry a 13-foot
conical Green Man effgy. Its a
fertility rite about bringing in
the season. This man is from
a group of steampunk Morris
dancers in the procession. They
perform the traditional English
folk dance but dress with a
steampunk aesthetic and use
traditional instruments to play
contemporary music, like Guns
N Roses Sweet Child o Mine.
The procession takes three
hours. Thousands of people turn
up and the streets are really
narrow. You cant really shoot
any of it. I wanted to isolate the
subject, so we set up a studio
outdoors, on a hillside overlooking the sea, where we knew the
end of the procession was going
to be. We got there early in the
morning when all these other
people were arriving.
I could hardly move because
I was shooting handheld on a
Hasselblad H4D-50 tethered to
a laptop. We lit the whole thing
outdoors, so we were mixing
fash and daylight.
