A Light Mantra

I think one of the challenges that all photographers face is how to separate the subject from the photograph. A photograph can only be a representation, an interpretation of a subject. If we focus too much on the subject, we can miss the photograph. This is especially common with landscape photography. I once had someone […]

Polarizing Landscapes

No, DPE has not become a political blog. There will be no red vs. blue landscapes here. Polarizing landscapes is about the value of a polarizer filter for digital landscape photography. A polarizer is often called a polarizing filter, although it reads polarized light and doesn’t do any polarizing itself, and it is definitely a […]

Tilt-shift Lenses and Effects are Too Cool!

Most architectural photographers and many landscape photographers (including my friend Andy Williams who created this wonderful image) rely on tilt-shift lenses to control perspective and depth-of-field . . .  among other things.
