* My next show will be under the auspices of the New Mexico Cancer Center. It is a benefit for the Center. The theme of this show is: Movers and Shakers – Works by Artists Who Teach, Lead and Inspire. This event is very well attended and sales can be brisk. There are usually around 400 pieces from 20+ artists covering a wide range of media. Show dates are August 23-November 19, 2021.

Due to Covid, the opening was cancelled. If, however, you would like to see my work as well as that of 22 other artists, please contact Regina Held, here to arrange a guided Saturday tour of the facility, where you will be able to view and purchase work.

I am featuring images from my landscape series, "Language of the Land" (image, Shiprock Pinnacle). All images can be viewed (with prices), here.
If you experience a missing/incorrect link or serious errors, please contact me and I will post the correct information on the Shadow & Light Magazine site, under the "Errata" tab.

Nikon to release affordable entry-level camera with "enhanced video functions"

The Nikon Report 2021 has recently been released, detailing some of Nikon's plans for the future of the imaging company. One of these plans includes the introduction of new "entrance models" that will not only be affordable, but will also have good video functionality as well.

With the Nikon D3500 discontinued in Japan, we're not surprised to see Nikon pursuing a new inexpensive entry-level model. While there's no further official information on what kind of camera we could be expecting, it seems likely that it will be a Z mount camera.

PN editor Will Cheung lays his hands on the Fujifilm GFX 50S II

I picked up the GFX 50 II and immediately had that deja vu feeling. No surprise really because the GFX 50S II body is identical to that of the 100 megapixel GFX 100S, a camera I got to test earlier this year. In fact the only physical clue that the GFX 50S II is a different camera is on the left end of the body where there’s a GFX 50 II logo.

Normally, pre-launch briefings mean we can’t take the new product out into public areas. In this case the new camera looks the same as one already out on sale, so we were allowed out, and we were using final production samples.
