  • Some more waves

    Some more waves

    In a previous post here, I presented the wave photography done by Warren Keelan and Rachael Talibart. Since this is still a very attractive subject, and while I found some more aboutit, I want to share a couple of links with you. The Art of Waves: A Lifetime of Awe-Inspiring Surf Photographs talks about the…

  • Waves!


    Sometimes, I see a few photos that are really astonishing. Today, I would like to share the work of two photographers who have impressed me with subjects which may appear easy: Waves. However, both of them did a great job of showing them in ways that make them shine. Warren Keelan You should visit his website, Instagram, Facebook, 500px,…

  • Improve your photographic skills with a photo challenge

    Improve your photographic skills with a photo challenge

    One little idea to progress in our mastering of the photographic technique: Take a photo challenge like “52 photos in 52 weeks”.

  • RAW or JPEG?

    RAW or JPEG?

    It seems that this question will always be there to haunt photographers (enthiusiasts and pros as well as mere amateurs). You should believe that the answer is complicated and prone to errors. Or that the issues are so thorny that nobody can answer. Again this month, I walked by a pro photographer on a mission…

    Autofocusing guides

    What could be more frustrating that holding a DLSR camera worth thousands of bucks and not being able to focus on the subject in front of you? So, I collected a few excellent guides or tutorials which provide good summaries (I think) of the possibilities of these cameras when it comes to autofocus or AF.…

    Best tips to shoot in Winter

    Cold weather is coming back real quick now, but this is no reason to stop shooting photos. I’d rather go under the hot sun of Africa, but Winter lights and the low light of high latitudes (Arctic, Antarctica or even Scandinavia) allow so lovely pictures that I would prefer taking some more photos. But cold…
