To demonstrate the incredible printing power of the new family of Canon imagePROGRAF pro printers, we took a look inside the mind of those who obsess over prints the most – pro photographers. We invited famed fashion photographer Lindsay Adler to print and analyze one of her most stunning photographs. Using eye-tracking technology, we traced every single eye movement of her relentless attention to detail, ultimately proving how obsessed she really is.
These are the 1,238 eye movements a photographer made while obsessing over the details.

Become a master of professional portrait lighting with these 24 essential studio lighting set-ups. Our free portrait lighting guide offers everything you need to know to get set up, plus illustrations of the effects.
Investing in a home studio kit is one of the best ways to take your portraits to the next level. You can light subjects from any direction, fix attachments to change the quality and spread of the light, and use a low ISO to ensure the highest image quality.
But flash can be a difficult beast to master, not least because the burst of light is almost instantaneous.
There are three main areas of control when using studio flash heads. First, you have control over the quality and spread of the light through use of attachments like umbrellas and softboxes.
Second, you can put the head wherever you choose: up high, down low, in front of or behind your subject, with each position changing the look of your image.
Third, you can use the power settings on the flash to control the output, which becomes important when you start balancing the light from multiple heads.
In our free portrait lighting guide we explain how to control these three factors so you can begin to sculpt the light so it behaves exactly how you want it to, every time.
Landscape Dreams, A New Mexico Portrait Craig Varjabedian’s photographs, made over the nearly three decades that he has lived and worked in New Mexico, range over all the image-making forms–landscape, portrait, and still life–to offer a remarkably complete, varied and original portrait of New Mexico.
“I feel that land and people form relationships, and when I take a photograph, I’m forming a relationship, both with the subject of my picture (be it tree, cloud, building, or person) and the environment around the subject,” explains Varjabedian. “Nowadays, when I photograph I feel I’m creating an homage to the West, its land, and its people. The light and sky are spectacular, but the people who live here also affirm the strength, endurance, and magic of this place.”
Understand these six qualities of light for optimal in-camera exposures Text & Photography by Rick Sammon
We all want to get the very best in-camera exposure, and a good exposure is all about correctly capturing light, the main element in every photograph. That said, your idea of the best exposure might be different from mine because, for one reason, you may prefer photographs that are a little darker or lighter than I prefer.
The first step in capturing the light is to « see » the light, to visualize the effect of light on a subject. After all, if you think about it, a photograph isn’t a picture of an object, it’s a picture of light falling on and reflected off an object. No light, no picture.

Multiple Exposure Photography Multiple exposure photography is when two or more individual exposures are made to create a single photograph. The resulting photographic image shows the images superimposed or layered over one another.
