Surviving the Burn: Photography at Burning Man

Burning Man can be a photographer’s dream or nightmare. The landscape, people, and creativity on display during the week-long event can lead to beautiful, breathtaking photography. At the same time, the harsh environmental conditions can spell disaster for your camera gear if you are not prepared.

I will share my photos and experience at Burning Man 2007 and discuss how my photography gear fared in the desert of Black Rock City.

DSLR Wars Heat Up

Nikon and Canon have upped the ante for digital SLRs. We’ll cover the specs on the latest releases, including the Nikon D3, Nikon D300, Canon 40D, and the Canon 1Ds Mark III.
