Michael Mirabito | photo technique Magazine: Variations on the Photographic Arts: "“Encaustic paintings have a marvelous feeling of depth and luminosity…Photo encaustic extends this process to our field. In one application, an image is printed on non-glossy matte paper and is subsequently brushed with, or is dipped in, a pool of melted encaustic medium…you can then add color, incise or cut lines in the wax for filling with colored paint or add materials to create a collage."

Dan Burkholder | photo technique Magazine: Variations on the Photographic Arts: "“The app developers behind Perfectly Clear are out to change our collective mind about iPhone/iPad photo correction that’s fast, easy and, yes, automatic. Perfectly Clear can indeed be used in a fully automatic fashion, but the app developer leaves plenty of room for parameter tweaking and decision making, all in an interface that doesn’t overpower your actual image.”"

Oliviero Toscani | photo technique Magazine: Variations on the Photographic Arts: "When I start a new project where creativity is involved, I don’t have any guarantees whatsoever as to how it will turn out. I don’t want to have that certainty. Because creativity means entering unchartered territory."

The Benefits Of A Reverse Gradient Neutral Density Filter: "Sunset and sunrise can be tricky times for photography. While the tone and strength of the light coming from the sun is perfect for warming skin tones and adding contrast, shots taken directly into the sun can be a challenge. We’ve all seen shots like the one below. It was taken at 18mm, ISO 100, f/16 and 1/50th of a second. Gorgeous sunset and I wanted to make sure I could see the driftwood."

Using Water to Lighten Landscape Photos: "Most Pro landscape photographers recommend shooting either at (or around) dawn or dusk in order to capture their scene in the ‘golden hours’ when the light is at it’s best (in fact some will rarely shoot at any other time of day)."
