Confusion caused by camera?s manufacturers With society's big push towards cameras, the many camera manufacturers have provided us a multilevel of photography. With DSLR cameras leading the way as the only way to provide a professional image for photographers, but nowadays camera manufacturers are sending out confusing messages to the buying public. By way of advertising many companies are giving the impression that if you purchase their low-end cameras you too can equal the professional images done by photographers. Some of what has been shown in the commercials lately can breed disrespect for those who have passion for this field of photography.
Los Angeles photographers are gearing up for a week in Palm Springs The Palm Springs Photo Festival Connect 2010 starts March 28th and continues through April 2nd in the city of Palm Springs,

In May I've been invited to join an artist friend in Mexico
City to photo-document her journey for inspiration, research &
shopping for art supplies. We will be doing the markets, art
museums and of course Frida's Blue House. I'm not worried about
the reported violence we won't be doing border towns, she knows
people and as artists a certain respect exists and they know
artist don't particularly have $$$.
I'm still an inexperienced SLR photographer and have never
travelled via airplane or out of the country with my equipment.
I've decided not to take my Tripod. I''m taking my IS lenses 18-
55 &[masked]mm, flashhead, charger, batteries & xtra cards &
usual accessories. No computer. I'm not sure if we'll make any
of the pyramid areas yet. Is it worth it to purchase the Sigma
[masked] mm in time for this trip. It's heavy, I'm a small woman
and not especially strong, no tripod. I'll be taking my med.
lowepro black backpack it's not very showey and I think low
key. Any suggestions on equipment to take, to leave, to add and
about equipment safety. I appreciate any suggestions or advice.
Thank you, Katrina
The Story Beyond The Still It's the first ever user-generated HD Video Contest where photographers become filmmakers, and we all see beyond the still. Last month the contest kicked off when Canon asked photographer, Vincent Laforet, to interpret a still by telling the story that lived beyond it using the Canon EOS 7D. It was the first chapter of seven, ending with a still photograph of its own for the Vimeo community to then interpret. After 112 entries, Josh Thacker was chosen as the very first winner and now, once again the question is posed to you, what do you see beyond this still? Vote for the winning video starting March 31.
