“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. Not only did Canon finally unleash their entry into the mirrorless foray, but so did Nikon. Previously the space 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. Undoubtedly flange focal distance will make a great conversation starter at our next tailgate party (Go Steelers!).

Admiralty Building - St., Petersburg, Russia

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

Edinburgh Castle - Edinburgh, Scotland

Next Scott Goldsworthy takes us to Edinburgh Castle this week. The castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, from its position on the Castle Rock. Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age, although the nature of the early settlement is unclear.

Flower Dome and Cloud Forest - Singapore

Gonzalo Ruiz Calavera shares this epic viewpoint of the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest. This photo was taken from right behind the Singapore Flyer looking out over Marina Bay. Clearly the view is especially spectacular when the domes are all lit up at night.
