AS A PHOTOGRAPHER, I'VE FOUND A GREAT distraction from the hassles of frequent flying: aerial photos. I've taken great shots of everything from snow-covered mountains to spectacular cloud formations. And as this shot of an Alaskan glacier shows, they're all the more amazing from the air.

HOW MUCH OF THE SOFTware that comes bundled with your camera, printer, scanner, or computer do ever actually use? Oh sure, you load the RAW converter for the camera, and the drivers for the printer or scanner; maybe even that version of Adobe Photoshop Elements or Corel Paint Shop Pro, since either program allows all but the most serious image editor to stave off a full—and expensive—commitment to Photoshop CS2.

Most point-and-shoot cameras use SD cards, but do any take Compact Flash cards? I want a pointand-shoot that uses the same type card as my DSLR. Some point-and-shoots used to take CF cards, but no more. SD cards now combine small size with high capacity and speed.

Shooting a series of photos to build a panorama is easy. Just follow these seven tips from ArcSoft: 1 Turn off autoexposure. Shoot in manual mode. Otherwise, when the camera automatically adjusts the exposure for each shot, subtle changes in light can make the corresponding area of two overlapping photos look totally different.

Samsung is now the fifth camera maker to offer a sub-$1,000 10-megapixel DSLR in the U.S. But its new 10.2MP GX-10 may look oddly familiar. Check out the sensor-based Optical Picture Stabilization...the self-cleaning CCD...the thoroughly sealed and gasketed body... Could it be?

LIGHT PRESENTS A SPECIAL challenge for nature shooters. Like all photographers, we must understand the many ways it affects the recording of subject on film or sensor. But wild light also confronts us as an ever-changing mix that can vary from one second to the next, tempered by season, time of day, cloud cover, atmospheric conditions, and natural reflectors such as snowy fields or red rock walls.

RAW Recipes
You hear it all the time: For better images and more control, shoot RAW. Why? Because when you shoot JPEGs, all your decisions about brightness, contrast, white balance, and more are written into the file forever.

DEBBIE GROSSMAN
But with RAW you can adjust those things later with conversion software. If you have Photoshop CS or later, try Adobe's Camera RAW to do the processing. To get into the program, double-click a RAW image in Adobe Bridge, or, from Photoshop, go to File > Open, and choose a RAW file.

EVEN MY MOST SINCERE New Year's resolutions rarely last for more than a few weeks. That's probably because I bite off more than I can chew. Case in point? Last year I planned to write the definitive article explaining how resolution works in a digital camera, how it contributes to image quality, how you can improve it, and how we test it.

BEFORE THE JAPANESE photo industry nearly quashed Germany's in the mid-1960s, there had been only a handful of major independent European lens manufacturers: Angenieux, Enna, Meyer, Rodenstock. Schneider, Steinheil, and Zeiss. Each bore its name proudly and never masqueraded under others.

THE LATE, GREAT STUDIO guru Dean Collins pulled many rabbits out of his lighting hat, but this trick attributed to him took my breath away: He made a single light produce two contrasting colors simultaneously, each aimed in a separate and discrete direction, with no significant cross-contamination.

THE PROBLEM: The sweep of the shoreline and roadway...the drama of the bright lights...the strange color in the sky. The predominance of the brownish red detracts from the picture, we think, and is magnified by the inclusion of so much sky-and there's that horizon in the middle.

A stand-out in the category of Photojournalism, John Piccoli is a Massachusetts native who is retired from the State of Connecticut Department of Corrections. His love affair with photography began while serving in the Navy in an amphibious unit at Little Creek, VT. Trips to the Caribbean and to the Mediterranean have given him many valuable opportunities to shoot, and he has finely honed his skill and appreciation of photography through photo courses at a local community college and from the New York Institute of Photography.

Born and raised in Calcutta, India, Ashok Sinha moved to downtown Manhattan 13 years ago, but won our Travel category for his shot of the Calcutta suburb waterways, which he took on his last trip there. "I chose this shot," he says, "because it captures the beauty that is often overlooked in this fast developing and changing city and rises above the clichés that the world often associates with this city's name.

JUST THREE YEARS AGO CANON started a revolution with the 6.3MP EOS Digital Rebel-the first digital SLR to sell for less than $1,000 with lens. That revolution has been such a wild success that the third-generation Reb, the XTi, arrives with 10.1MP, loads of high-end features, and an even lower price-and still finds itself in a battle with four other manufacturers for that same piece of turf.

AT FIRST GLANCE, THE NEW SIGMA 50-150mm f/2.8 EX DC ($680, street) appears to possess an unusual focal length range. But when you do the math, multiplying by a 35mm lens-conversion factor of 1.4X, it becomes a more familiar-sounding 70-210mm equivalent.

It can be a pretty decent hobby and a reasonably rewarding career. But photography has a remarkable ability to be more than that—to be a force that moves people. The history of photography from its earliest days is filled with photographers who have used that power to spark reform in urban slums or to save endangered creatures and their habitats.

SOME PHOTOGRAPHERS HAVE THE VISION to see a problem in society or the environment and focus on it, creating a body of work that brings major reform. But most photographers looking to make a difference in the world will find there's already a nonprofit group, whether a charity or nongovernmental organization (NGO), in their area of interest.

BUT, BUCK PRIVATE, IF YOU'VE STILL GOT IT SET ON THE "GREEN ZONE"—THE FULLY AUTOMATIC MODE— YOU'RE SHOOTIN' LIKE A CIVILIAN. SURE, THE PICTURES YOU TAKE WITH YOUR NEW CAMERA ARE BETTER THAN ANY YOU'VE GOTTEN BEFORE, BUT IT'S TIME TO TAKE CHARGE AND LEARN WHAT GREAT PHOTOS YOU CAN GET WHEN YOU'RE THE ONE IN CONTROL.

All of these subjects are animal actors. They were definitely more difficult portrait subjects than movie stars or children are.
