“In photography, there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”
— Alfred Stieglitz

Photography Digest: This week was all about the mirrorless cameras. Both Canon and Nikon finally unleashed their entries into the foray that has been dominated by Sony for the last several years. Canon revealed the EOS-R and Nikon the Z6 and the Z7. Both cameras have an impressive set of features, but if you ask us they both have a ways to go to usurp the mighty Sony Alpha a7 cameras. On the upside, we all got to learn about Flange Focal Distance. That should make a great conversation starter at our next tailgate party (Go Steelers!).

Admiralty Building - St., Petersburg, Russia

Dmitriy is this week’s shot of the week for his amazing photo of the Admiralty Building in St. Petersburg. This view is from Alexander Garden and is especially beautiful at night. As a bonus, the Fontan U Admiralteystva is perfect for reflection shooting.

After a sweltering week, the fall chill is starting to creep into the morning air where I am in Quebec. That means it’s just a few more weeks for the fair weather photographers out there. It won’t be long until the leaves start to change and brilliant colours of fall take over. Until then, enjoy these shots of fantastic photo locations from the last few weeks of summer.
