“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!).

Port Hueneme Pier - California, USA

Doug Golupski is a master of waterfront beach shots and his submission this week is not a disappointment. We love the deep orange tones of this image of Port Hueneme Pier. It is a 1200 foot long wooden plank pier on the waterfront in Port Hueneme. The Pier is open to the public and located next to a favorite beach, Port Hueneme Beach Park. At sunset, the pier is a great place to be as the sun sets behind the Channel Islands.
