I'd like an overhead food photo please!

To me, an avid gourmand, food photography is not only a real treat, but also a guilty pleasure. I spend quite some time looking at food photos and I can assure you it is a very healthy habit. It keeps me away from actually eating everything I'd like to taste so I just love good photo feasts!They say that in order to feel like eating, you first have to like what you see on your plate. There's nothing more inviting or appetizing than an awesome food photo. Food photography is something to savor... continue reading

Fun with wide angle

I started photography with a 50mm prime. I was so skeptic about wide angle lenses and distortions that buying a Kit lens was a 'no no' for me.After more than a year I somehow thought of buying a superwide angle of 10-20mm. Still I used to make mess with most of the shots due to wrong angles. It is definitely not a cakewalk to apply wide angle in apt cases. Howvever once you are game and practice, wide angle seems to be pure bliss :)Be it a landscape or an architecture or a cityscape wide... continue reading

I tired different angles and positions to do my best to capture each image. And that... continue reading

Sky with clouds - a good shot of a well covered subject

Some weeks ago I got this image of a beautiful sky accepted. I know there are thousands of pictures of a sky, however when I saw this beautiful sky one morning in September this year I could not resist. (thanks to the reviewers for still letting it through!) I live in a high-rise building so I could take a picture without any obstacles in the way. What makes this shot special is the use of a wide angle which I can highly recommend for shooting images of the sky. It often captures well the impression... continue reading

My cheap fish-eye lense :)

Hello!A while ago I asked advise on this board from people using various fish-eye lenses, which of them was better, becuase I planned to buy a suspiciously cheap one from ebay.Here is the discussion.Now I can say that I made an experiment: my cheap (about 30$ including delivery) Bower fish-eye macro arrived and I even made few shots with it.
