Nikon Announces NIKKOR Z 24-70MM F/2.8 S For Mirrorless Z Series

The fifth lens for Nikon’s Z Series mirrorless cameras is the NIKKOR Z 24-70MM F/2.8 S. A full stop faster than the NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/4 S—also for the Z Series—that was introduced last year, the new lens is targeted at professionals and enthusiasts who want the highest image quality and speed from this popular zoom range. Though heavier and larger than the ƒ/4 S line model, as you’d expect, Nikon notes that this lens is approximately 24.7 percent lighter and 18.4 percent shorter than the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR lens for DSLRs...

A Life In Pictures

If sometime in the course of the last five decades you found yourself sitting next to George Lepp on an airplane, or attending one of his workshops, or if you bumped into him on a mountain trail, chances are he taught you something about photography. It’s not just because he’s a world-class outdoor photographer and educator, but thanks mostly to his limitless exuberance for the medium and sincere passion for helping others. Photography is in his bones, and he’s made an art of sharing the knowledge and experience gained over the course of his 50-year career. In recognition of that, the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) is honoring him with a lifetime achievement award...

Beyond The Camera

Owing to an inherently mechanical nature, a camera (be it film or digital) essentially produces raw images that, on their own, are rarely able to adequately communicate the enigmatic complexities and expressive nuances of a subsequently crafted fine art photograph. Post-camera image manipulation has always been a basic tenant of the photography process. And for me personally, a particularly illuminating and memorable demonstration of that reality helped to reinforce my basic understanding of, and approach to, the concept of photographic visualization...

Sub-Zero Surfer

New Hampshire winters are cold and snowy. Mid-January of this year was especially brutal, with temperatures below zero for several consecutive days. But with this sudden extreme cold comes the opportunity to photograph “sea smoke” along the coast. Sea smoke is water vapor that forms when extremely cold air moves over warmer water and the thin boundary layer of warm air just above the surface. As the evaporating water rises, it condenses into a fog or sea smoke...
