“After working with words as a journalist and journalism educator for more than 40 years,” writes Steven Strasser, a longtime editor at Newsweek and a former professor at CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, “I had an intense interest in learning something about photography. I really had to start from scratch on digital SLR cameras, as I had no idea how aperture, shutter speed and ISO worked together. I’ve been focusing mostly on things that just sit there — flowers, landscapes, buildings, and so on. The photos printed here were taken with my new tilt-shift lens, a wonderful piece of equipment that’s ideal for shooting buildings with the proper perspective and landscapes that remain in focus from front to back. It’s my latest favorite toy, and I’m sure I’ll do many, many more architectural shots before I’m finished.”
