Two things occurred to me When I read Phillip VanNostrand’s article The Only Three Lenses You Need for Travel Photography. One, is that his choice of lenses would not be my choice.

I have a confession to make: I used to be a pixel peeper. There was a time when I’d spent hours zooming in and inspecting photos at 1:1 or even 300 percent.

Adobe have announced that the next version of Photoshop will be Photoshop CC, not CS7. With the emphasis switched to the Cloud from last year, CS6 marks the end of an era for Adobe. In Future Photoshop will be cloud only with constant updating, rather than a new version every 18-24 months. This means that new features will be available as soon as the work on them is complete, rather than waiting for the cycle to come around again.  To sweeten the deal, owners of CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS6 can get a...

To celebrate the release of my book later this month, Surreal Photography: Creating the Impossible, it seemed entirely appropriate that this month's competition theme should be surreal. We're not picky about the type of surrealism you want to enter: it can be a battle of gods and monsters from a universe undiscovered, painstakngly composited in Photoshop; or you can submit an infrared picture that puts us at five degrees to the world we know. You can use Photoshop manipulation, in-camera...
