A Summer Challenge

A Summer Challenge
Summer is well underway.  It is a time for enjoying vacation travel, family gatherings, weekend excursions, free events in the city, and days at the beach.  It may be tempting to put your photography on the back burner, or it could be the perfect time to try something new. What do you shoot?  Flowers? Landscapes? Portraits? Travel?  Why not try something different.  Shooting new subjects, different perspectives, or for a different purpose may reawaken your photographic awareness and have you rethinking exposure, lighting, lens choice, perspective, and view point. Here are a few suggestions: Table top/product photography, storytelling, strangers, silhouettes, action or sports.  There is nothing like the challenge of capturing a never-before-shot subject, to spark renewed inspiration.

A Love Story From the Wild

A Love Story From the Wild
Lou Ann Goodrich has a love story to share.  A love story that began at Yellowstone National Park. Lou Ann had been captivated by wildlife going back to her childhood.  At Yellowstone that love collided with a newfound passion, photography. For ten years Lou Ann photographed all types of wildlife.  She would sit for hours patiently waiting for that perfect moment to capture an animal in its natural environment. The effort sometimes would require she work behind a blind to avoid being seen by her unsuspecting subjects. Lou Ann usually reaches for her Canon Dx1 when working in the wild.  She loves this fast and accurate camera for action sequences, allowing her to capture quickly changing interactions.  Working quickly with moving subjects [continue reading...]

30 For 30: Digital Enabling

30 For 30: Digital Enabling
To celebrate Women’s History Month, PWP will feature items from its Archives* each day on this blog. In looking back, we see not only where we started, but how far photography, women, and the world have come since 1975. In 1975 when PWP was founded, MS Magazine was just a few years old and had been expected to fail. But the first issue sold out, proving the hunger women had for authentic content created by and for them, not forced on them. 1975 was also the year Microsoft and Apple Computer were founded. The first PWP publications were assembled with typewriters and tape, but as the digital tide swept in, paste-up gave way to crude daisy wheel printout, then eye-popping [continue reading...]

30 For 30: Face of a Changing City

30 For 30: Face of a Changing City
To celebrate Women’s History Month, we’re featuring items from the PWP Archives* each day on this blog. In looking back, we see not only where we started, but how far photography, women, and the world have come since 1975. In PWP exhibition catalogs are glimpses of a changing city. When the group was founded in 1975, New York was halfway through its darkest decade. Crime was high, bankruptcy loomed, infrastructure was in ruins. Gritty black-and-white images from early PWP shows reflect the on-going drama of the street where a wild, circus-like atmosphere prevailed. As the city became safer in the late 1990s and early 2000s, investment flowed to it and gleaming towers rose. Times Square, once Dionysian, morphed into a [continue reading...]
