20th anniversary issue

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of Digital Photo magazine. Born as PCPhoto, the publication was one of the first not only to recognize, but to embrace the sea change that digital photography would become.In its earliest days, the magazine dealt largely with images captured on film and then edited on a computer. As digital photography proper emerged, the magazine was perfectly positioned to lead photographers and other creatives into the digital revolution. Back then, the Sony Cyber-shot and the Nikon Coolpix 100 had just come to market. It would still be two years before the D1 would be released, ushering in the era of professional digital photography.At the end of the 1990s and the early 2000s it was an exciting time to be a photographer. The entire photography market would…

"Fun Slide" by Peter AlessandriaSummer in New Jersey, like many other places, means county fairs. This photo was taken last August at the Sussex County Fair in northern New Jersey. It was near dusk after a beautiful day when I arrived. I was going to the fair to shoot nighttime long exposures of the rides (you can see those photos at, but I immediately noticed how gorgeous the setting sun was on the clouds high above the fairgrounds. I wanted to travel light, so I left my camera bag in the car and only took my camera and tripod. I made my way to the opposite end of the fair, where the most prominent rides were, found the perfect spot, set up my camera and turned it on—only to…

competitive edge

Sports photography is one of those disciplines that can be practiced almost anywhere at almost anytime. Whether you’re covering the Olympics across the globe or your daughter’s soccer game just across town, the principles—and challenges—have a lot in common. Photographer Mike Powell has 25 years of experience shooting sports for the likes of Sports Illustrated, Newsweek, ESPN The Magazine, Stern and L’Equipe. Here, Powell shares 10 tips for making amazing sports images wherever the action may find you. 1 LONG LENSES AREN’T ALWAYS REQUIRED You don’t always need ultra-telephoto lenses for successful sports photography.

the fine art of travel photography

How does a photographer transcend the “I was here” imagery that’s often associated with travel photography and create fine-art images of places near and far? From the dozens of workshops I’ve taught on the subject, as well as talking with—and carefully studying the work of—many of the great globetrotting lensmen and lenswomen in the field, I’ve developed a methodology that, when applied, should yield impressive and, at times, spectacular results.BIG-PICTURE THINKINGI see a common failing with many beginning travel photographers. They’re so focused on the fascinating subjects before them that they forget about the basic rules of composition that make for a great photo. Look at the whole frame and use the space effectively. Ask yourself, “If I were painting this scene, what would I include? What would I exclude?”…
