    Try this: focus on the nearest point you want in focus. As you begin to stop down, focus more into the scene while keeping that near point in focus. At some point (if the gods are with you) the far...
  2. Re: "The Other City" exhibition by Thom Bennett

    Yep, you nailed all the locations! You'd probably enjoy Michael Zell's book.
  3. Re: "The Other City" exhibition by Thom Bennett

    Yes, we have a very active photo community and the PhotoNOLA Festival tries to tap into as much of that as possible.

    I took the Nude and Platinum workshop over a dozen years ago and had a great experience. It was still geared toward film then but the most important aspect, for me, was how to work with the models....

  15. Re: New Book: Landscape as Longing: Queens, New York by Frank Gohlke and Joel Sternfe

    Looks interesting! As someone who is attempting to tackle photographing an urban landscape this book is right up my alley. And both of these guys make it appear easy, which it ain't.

    Re: 360mm Lenses for 8x10

    Not a common lens but I found a 360mm Commercial Congo that is small and light, relative to the plasmats. Takes 67mm filters and is in a Copal shutter. Essentially, a modern version of the 14" KCE....
