Huis Marseille, musée de la photographie-Pays-bas (Amsterdam) In the Future, We Will Photograph Everything and Look at Nothing “Today everything exists to end in a photograph,” Susan Sontag wrote in her seminal 1977 book “On Photography.” This was something I thought about when I recently read that Google was making its one-hundred-and-forty-nine-dollar photo-editing suite, the Google Nik Collection, free. This photo-editing software is as beloved among photographers as, say, Katz’s Deli is among those who dream of pastrami sandwiches. Before Google bought it, in 2012, the collection cost five hundred dollars. My guess is that it wants to kill the software, but it doesn’t want the P.R. nightmare that would follow. “The giveaway is bad news, as it means the software they paid for has almost [certainly] reached the end of the line in terms of updates,” wrote PC World. Google’s comments—disheartening as they might be—reflect the reality of our shifting technologies. To understand Google’s decision, one needs to understand how our relationship with photographs has changed.
Rencontres photographiques de Montpellier Landscape Photography Tips -- National Geographic We've all had the experience: Driving through a beautiful landscape, you stop at every scenic overlook to make photographs sure to capture the grandeur of what you see. You get home, look at the pictures, and find them flat and boring. All the elements that enthralled you at the time are there, but not the feeling. When we look at a landscape, our eyes travel over it and selectively focus on the elements that we find appealing. Time is the most important investment you can make in getting good landscape pictures. If a river or stream flows through the landscape you are shooting, think about the character of it and how to convey that character in the image. Look carefully for reflections in the water. Photographing forests presents a different set of challenges. As with any photograph, find a point of interest. Whether you are shooting toward a forest or shooting from inside it, look for patterns, lines, and other compositional elements you can use.

The Power of Photography Photographers use their cameras as tools of exploration, passports to inner sanctums, instruments for change. Their images are proof that photography matters—now more than ever. By Robert Draper Thirty-four years before the birth of this magazine, the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard sourly prophesied a banal fate for the newly popularized art of photography. The National Geographic Society did not set out to test Kierkegaard’s thesis, at least not right away. By wresting a precious particle of the world from time and space and holding it absolutely still, a great photograph can explode the totality of our world, such that we never see it quite the same again. Today photography has become a global cacophony of freeze-frames. When I tell people that I work for this magazine, I see their eyes grow wide, and I know what will happen when I add, as I must: “Sorry, I’m just one of the writers.” Apparently they wouldn’t have it any other way. Robert Draper is a contributing writer.
Auer Foundation for Photography-Hermance ( Suisse) Digital Photography Tips -- National Geographic By Rob Sheppard and Bob Martin Digital cameras today offer superb image quality that competes directly with film. These cameras look and act like traditional cameras with a few extra features. Many things about digital cameras are identical to film cameras, a few things are slightly tweaked from film expectations, and a number of features are unique to digital photography. For quality results from any camera, the basics of photography still apply no matter how an image is captured. The "digital" in digital camera has caused even experienced photographers to worry that this new technology will be difficult to master. Digital cameras come in a variety of forms, from point-and-shoot pocket cameras to advanced digital SLRs. Simple point-and-shoot digital cameras can give surprising quality when they have the right lenses and sensors. Interchangeable-lens, digital SLRs offer all the controls of a 35mm SLR, including lenses that give you a wealth of focal-length possibilities.
