Photographer: Josh Miller Location: Ansel Adams Wilderness, California Equipment: Nikon D300, AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G IF-ED Situation: Bordering on the southeastern side of Yosemite National Park, the Ansel Adams Wilderness has long been a favorite area for photographers who are willing to carry their gear deep into the backcountry. Having first seen the location while working as a backpacking guide years prior, when I became a photographer, I knew it was a location I had to get back to. I have made many trips into the area, including by skis in the winter. The trick with this location is being there at the perfect time for both the wildflowers as well as clouds at sunrise. While backpacking in the Sierra Nevada is truly world-class, one of the downfalls of having such stable summer…

Macro photography is a subject you can explore year-round, in any season and just about anywhere. Success in macro can be technically challenging, but that’s also one of its benefits. It’s an opportunity to practice and strengthen your compositional skills, your use of light and your attention to details like precise focus. Plus, you can likely find subjects within a few steps from where you’re reading this. In “Focus On Macro,” Darrell Gulin shares the inspiration and top tips for making close-up images that he has gained over many years of creative macro work.

Every major camera maker, as well as the leading third-party lens makers, offer…

Nature’s Bouquet By Bill Marson “Immortalized by Claude Monet, water lilies entrance artists with their shapes, patterns and color palette. On a remote lake deep in the wilderness of Quebec, I captured this image that I feel portrays the true essence of this timeless motif. “Alone in a rowboat, and without my polarizing filter, I needed to carefully navigate myself into a position within a large field of lily pads. A light summer breeze kept my boat ever so slowly drifting and turning, making things more amusing. The only way to keep my lens parallel to the water’s surface was to take this picture one-handed, steadily extending my arm precariously over the bow of the boat. With continuous autofocus engaged, I deliberately chose my exposure to balance my unconventional handholding technique with the…

hasselblad x1d ii 50c

My college graduation present from my parents was a Mamiya 6 rangefinder. I loved that camera. It offered the image quality of medium-format film but in a hand-friendly, rangefinder-style body rather than the boxy form factor of most medium-format cameras. It had its limitations. There were only three lenses available, and rangefinders can be more difficult to use when you’re trying for a precise crop in-camera.

The Hasselblad X1D 50C, introduced in 2016, and its successor, the X1D II 50C, remind me a lot of the Mamiya 6. It’s a similar story: medium-format image quality in a body that’s familiar, approachable and designed to be used on-the-go rather than stuck in a studio. It, too,…
