    Apart from the stunning portfolio, National Geographic icon Michael Nichols' website looks like a great resource for the wildlife/nature photogs and wannabe NG photogs.

    quote from the article

    Geographic is still shooting transparencies. I think technology is probably the least important thing to consider. But you do have to be able to handle transparencies to shoot for the Geographic


    just thought i would share that, Recently i remember there was some discussion regarding how people were all digital now for those sort of publications

    Good question you bring up, do you need to shot transparencies to shot for magazines like NG. As the quote says “I think technology is probably the least important thing to consider.” NG has the freedom to chouse the best of the best.

    Remember NG has the luxury of longer time lines. Also IMO anyone than when out on an assignment to a remote location without a manual backup is pushing their luck.

    Not just Nat Geo, but if you check most publications, the first type of submission they list is slide/transparency.

    "we prefer large format (4x5) transparencies"...?
    Huh? Last time I looked 4x5 was medium format!
    8x10 transparencies (or neg film) is large format.

    It is the smallest of large format sizes. LF begins with 4x5, then onwards to 5x7, 8x10, etc.

    We normally define large format as cameras that shoot sheet film and medium format cameras as those that shoot 120/220 roll film. It isn't an ironclad definition but that's the way most photogs define it.
