December 15th, 2002 Newsletter

Welcome to the December issue of the Berman – Maher Newsletter. In this months newsletter we talk about the new book that Larry and Chris just finished writing with Greg Georges, Chris’s newest body of infrared photographic work, links to Chris and Larry’s latest articles that have been published in various magazines, and the latest scoop on the newest digital phones.

Our New Book:
The last few months have found us writing a book on digital camera techniques with Greg Georges, founder of the 50 Fast series. Aptly so, the book is titled “50 Fast Digital Camera Techniques” and will be available in bookstores and on Amazon sometime late in the first quarter next year. We are currently in the ‘author review’ period, and will have more details about it in our next newsletter. Amazon is already listing it.

New Photographs on InfraRedDreams.com:
Chris just returned from a trip to the Mohave Desert and has put a wonderful new body of infrared nudes on his infrared web site.

And speaking of infrared, we just had a CoolPix 990 modified by having the IR absorbing hot glass taken out so it has incredible infrared sensitivity, 5 stops more than the CoolPix 950: http://bermangraphics.com/coolpix/990infrared.htm

Here’s a list of our latest articles and adventures:

Our featured artist page contains a wonderful body of self-portraits by Asya Schween, a 22-year-old Ph.D. student in higher mathematics. http://bermangraphics.com/galleryfeatured.htm

Our favorite light weight tripod:

The Velbon tripods we love to use were written up in Imaging Resource newsletter Friday 12/13/02:

This is their quote about us:

"A while ago we were impressed with Larry Berman's story of his Southwest trip in which he relied on a lightweight but capable tripod from Velbon manufactured by Hakuba. That turns out to be the tripod Keppler fell in love with, too. Who are we to argue? The warranty is reassuring. The pedigree (Berman and Keppler) is inspiring. But love has a mind of its own. And we did fall in love with this tough little tripod."

You can read about the tripod and see Larry’s Southwest pictures that were mentioned in the article:

Additionally Larry’s Southwest pictures are currently featured in both Mac Design Magazine and eDigitalPhoto Magazine:

We’ve finally finished our art shows for the year. Between writing the book and doing the art shows, we haven’t had much free time, as you can imagine. In the middle of all of this, Larry was diagnosed with colon cancer and was successfully operated on in September. The story is related on:
