From standard snaps to great photography

How can I improve my photographs so they have a much more 'real' quality? I've taken some nice shots - not bad composure / colours etc but at best they're quite good. I'm looking to improve to amazing/wow photos...or at least as close as I can get. [more inside]

Ayez-vous La Chambre Claire?

Does the original French version of Camera Lucida have captions beneath the photographs, or are they added in the English translation? Also, are the photographs interspersed with the text in the French edition, or are they given a page to themselves as they are in the English one?

need deserty scenic spot near Austin

Austin Mefites: I need to find a location not too far (say within 1/2 hour max drive time) of Austin, anywhere in the area, that looks desert-y. Sure I could drive on out to any # of places in the middle of Texas, but I don't have that much time available on the day of this particular photo shoot I'd like to do. A big, open flat & sandy area that I could have my car in if I needed to would be ideal. [more inside]

Purchasing fine art photographs

At some point in my life I would like to graduate from displaying posters on my wall to having fine art prints from the photographers themselves. I am thinking I would like a candid photograph of Johnny Cash and Joe Strummer (not in the same picture!). I assume there is a gallery to represent these photographers, but how do I start the process of finding them?

Is it really that risky to take a GPS unit to Russia?

This travel advisory from the State Department website, dated 1998, states that the use of GPS units is highly regulated in Russia and that it is risky to bring one unless it is fully documented. Now, GPS units are a lot more common today than they were in 1998. Do I really have to worry about this? I am planning a multi-country trip and I could mail myself the GPS ahead of time to my post-Russia destination if I had to. I am an amateur photographer and I use the unit to tag the location of photos I have taken.

What is this real life diorama called? Kind of like a frozen scene from a play.

What is this 'live photograph' called? I'm forgetting what this experience/event is called. The basic idea is actors posing in a scene - they're not moving, and I believe the 'audience' can move around and through these posed people. It is kind of like a real life diorama; I believe it was from the late 19th century; the term itself may be French; I'm making myself crazy trying to find this. [more inside]

Help Feed my Photo habit.

I'm looking for blogs that are focused on linking to good, interesting photos. The type of photo doesn't really matter. Photojournalism and fine art, landscapes, nature, street, wildlife, etc are all great (oversaturated stock photos that look like they belong on inspirational posters are not great). I'm not looking for blogs that feature the work of a single photographer. I am looking for blogs that express the POV of one person or a small group of people about what they find interesting.
