Photographer Ellen Kooi’s sweeping landscapes, are like a break mid-story. Though the landscapes seem to dominate the image, her focus seems to be the relationship of the human (most often woman or child) to that surrounding. Her work is laboriously produced, planning lighting and subject placement long before the shot takes place. Her work has been written about in the NY Times and exhibited throughout Europe and North America.

Sony’s new Alpha A300 digital SLR is simply revolutionary… and by that I mean it really is a simple addition that makes it so revolutionary. They’ve added a tilting preview screen so you can compose your shots similar to a compact point and shoot camera. This has previously been a problem because the few DSLR models that have a preview screen, can’t seems to focus. Sony fixed this problem by adding another sensor. Simple, but genius. Lots of shooters might say that you can’t compose a photo with a screen, but I say, now you can literally shoot from the hip, while composing on your tilted preview screen. Pretty nifty.
