Create A Web Gallery

It's pretty much expected these days that if you're a photographer, you'll have some kind of web gallery.
By Wes Pitts
When it comes to designing web pages, simpler is usually better, especially for online photo galleries. Displaying fewer images per page at larger sizes not only looks better at a glance, but makes it easier for your visitors to appreciate your photography.

While searching online for a mid-priced, 67mm circular polarizer for my Nikon D200, I came across this filter description that has me puzzled: "Used like and gives the same effect as [a] polarizer, but designed for cameras with beam-splitting metering." Is this filter a polarizer? How do I know if my D200 has beam-splitting metering, and if I use this particular lens with my D70 or something new later on, will this filter no longer work? Is this a concern for all circular polarizers, or is this model by Tiffen something special?

Adventures In Aperture

I made this image during my trip to Carnevale in Venice, Italy, this year. Sure, the model is terrific, and the location, an 800-year-old palace, is fantastic.
