So, for the rest of my trip I shot everything on AUTO.After looking at all my pictures, I've come to the conclusion that AUTO was not really an inconvenience... continue reading

Where and how to find good honest critique for your work?

Dear DT community, I haven't been active on the site for almost 2 years now, because I've made a decision to refocus my photographic ambitions and interests following a more theatrical/artistic style.I've got no regrets doing that, however, it seems to me that I've reached something of a rut in my path.

How can we improve customer satisfaction?

It would be nice if contributors would know about this. It would create a win-win situation for the... continue reading

One might have assumed, back when color photos were first developed, that black and white images would slowly turn into a relic from a time when imaging technology was in its infancy. After all, color brings a whole new dimension to photography.However, as the years went by, black and white photography didn’t disappear. Instead, these monochrome images have... continue reading
