Part one of our sister publication American Photo's four-part history of September 11, 2001, as told by the photographers who captured it, is now available for your perusal. It's an amazing group of stories--these photographers raced down to Ground Zero from all over New York, whether they were war correspondents, fashion photographers, or news staffers, to capture these indelible images.
Popular Photography, our sister site, has a stunning guide to the 25 best places to photograph on this crowded, magnificent rock on which we live. The ancient world (Petra, Chichén Itzá), far-flung destinations like remote and mountainous Bhutan, amazing natural wonders (animals!), and more--even if you don't take the guide literally and actually spend the next few years of your life scrambling to get to these places, you can take a pretty great virtual tour right here.
We love digital, but the earthquake in Japan has made DSLR cameras and accessories a bit scarce and expensive. So why not look to film? There's the cool retro vibe, and even with the costs of film processing, SLRs are awfully cheap. Our sister site, Popular Photography, compiled a great list of 12 of the best film cameras out there that'll give you cred and some great photos.
