Accent lighting in outdoor photography

In one of my past blogs I mentioned that I was experimenting with an off camera flash in nature detail images. I used a radio remote trigger to fire the flash from different angles off camera axis. The results have been interesting and I find myself shooting a lot of detail images on my hiking trips to improve on the technique. To achieve the results I have been looking for, I set my tripod mounted camera on automatic (not program) and mount a radio slave trigger to the hot shoe mount. I... continue reading

Art and Photography

A recent conversation with a photographic colleague brought up an interesting topic.What do you see as art in your photography?My answer was everything.How did I come to this conclusion?The photography medium has been described as documentary, but I beg to differ.A few years ago I was lucky enough to become acquainted with an artist who helped me shape my way of looking at my craft.He asked me once where I saw art in the world and I listed a few examples, to which he said yes, you are... continue reading

An Ode to the Mighty Vegetable

October 1st finds us celebrating World Vegetarian Day.There is so much more to eating vegetarian than just eating vegetables; vegetarian means simply eating no meat, no meat except fish for the "pescatarian", or no animal products at all for the strict "vegan".Which means a vegetarian diet includes lots of beautiful and healthy fruits, grains, beans, and nuts.But it is the vegetable that lends its name to this day, so let us use it to celebrate the mighty vegetable in pictures.The beauty... continue reading

Devil can be in the detail

When I saw these gulls sat along the cross bar I thought it was a vaguely interesting image. It wasn't until i enlarged the image and scanned along the row of gulls, who at first glance were just perched there, that the image got more interesting. Each Gull doing its own thing and I have no idea exactly what the Gull on the left hand end is doing! Sometimes the devil can be in the detail.  continue reading

Fast acceptance of images: hurrah for the editors!

Some two months ago I noticed a rather slow rhythm in the work of our editors, I used to wonder if it was coz of an unusual high amount of submitted photos , some editors being on holidays (hopefully) or not feeling well (hopefully not) or both reasons together. During this last weeks however the acceptance of my pics has gone much faster than average: 48 or less hours.The pic I am presenting to you here is an example, it was uploaded on the 8th of December and on the 11th it was already here to... continue reading

Don´t get me wrong :) Most of all I prefer the nature photo. What nature can conjure up is more than wonderful. In this moment is important only to focus on the right detail of the huge colorful spectrum. I love the details which is unavailable for people without a gift - "stop for a while, calm yourself... continue reading
