A look back: Yosemite National Park

I am not the first nor the last to capture the beauty of this amazing park. Thousands of photographers have taken thousands of images here that are better than mine; even famous photographers like Ansel Adams have taken iconic images that have inspired generations of photographers, here in this park. There’s a reason why; this park is a natural wonderland and, while my images are not as famous or iconic as other images taken here, they tell the story of my own personal experience visiting the park.... continue reading

A look back: Sequoia National Park

Last year I was vacationing in California and got to visit Sequoia National Park twice during our stay, taking as many photos as the rest of the (non-photographers) group allowed me to. I loved it.I’m from the Caribbean, I’m used to sandy beaches, sun and warm tropical weather. The park was cool, breezy, full of gigantic green and brown trees, mountains and streams of water snaking between rocks, song birds singing and majestic vistas of the mountains in the distance and... continue reading

BACK OFF, MAN!

Vary your lenses to take in the complete picture...Because wild critters are my passion, the long lens tends to stay on the front of my camera. On a recent vacation to a treehouse cabin in Waynesville, North Carolina (see the photo journal here), I sat on the patio every morning and afternoon with my 600 mm lens hoping to photograph some Life Birds.But one morning as I watched down the mountainside and into the valley below, I wrote in my journal, “The landscape before me constantly... continue reading

Key Considerations When Choosing a Background Image

Although the content in your project calls the shots, a background is equally important in getting the right message across. Regardless of type of content, whether it is prop, a page, a book or window dressing elements, background is not just an ‘add-on’ but a vital element that enhances your work. A visitor can get an idea of your subject by looking at the background. Selecting a background requires careful consideration of the message you want to put across. let's take a look at how we... continue reading

Backlight

The sun sets or the sun shines ... usually best moments for photography in nature where mid tones show the most. No harsh shadows and no over strong highlights. Everything seems balanced and camera sensors of all sizes simulate such in there own best way(s).Directly lit objects may show really clear but what about back lit ones.Hair and fur shows really well pronounced especially if front of camera object had no reason to be that clear in terms of detail with certain texture(s)... continue reading

Bokeh - behind the lens

So wikipedia says: "In photography, bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens" ...that was a part of the article and I believe everyone can find and read it :)I won't write here about usual bokeh without the main object in focus. And I won't write about simple blurs that can make everyone at every time. No one wants to have portfolio with thousands of such images with a few sells, right?I want to write about three related... continue reading

Back on Camera

Saturday the 22nd April was lovely sunny day, albeit a bit cold outside.Lighting was perfect to capture some images.I decided to travel to Loch Leven as its a place I've heard of but never been to before.I was unsure what to expect.So here goes, i type 'Loch Leven' into the Sat Nav and on the road I go.Ended up lost down a farm track but gave me the opportunity to steal a few snaps. Eventually I made it to a place called 'Loch Leven Larder' this was a small garden centre type... continue reading

Back with new stuff again...

After a long time away from DT, due to the loss of my whole camera setup, I decided to buy another one and keep on posting for my Exclusivity contribution to this database, improving the quality of my shots and the times of shooting sessions.And so I also decided to ask for a serious critique on what is good or not for this platform (i.e. what could sell better in my portfolio, what I should leave out of it and what can wait).Comments and critiques are very seriously welcome here, to help me improve... continue reading

Changes

I was uploading pictures for about a year, from 2010 until 2011. My last photo was uploaded on the 20th of October of 2011. Ever since I was completely inactive. For some reason this year I decided to log in again and see what changed. The website looked the same, the user interface looked the same. Even the contributors area which looked archaic 6 years ago was still the same(and still is).Then the current assignment at the time caught my eye. It was the WOW assignment, I submitted 5 photos I had... continue reading
