As it happens among birds, in most cases the males look simply much more spectacular than the females which has an easy explanation. Males (not only among birds..) often pass their time, specially before the reproductive season, dedicated to an exhibition of their beauty in feathers and colours and also of a capacity of ridiculous behaviour which exceeds by far other animal groups.Female birds have more important and useful things to do like choosing the less useless male among others, laying eggs... continue reading

Greetings to all !Here my last three images accepted, I hope you like them!This is a background of skin, we hope that sells. To photograph I had to use two Nikon SB900 flash in slave. Although this, I had to use a filter of Camera Raw, to carefully adjust the exposure and contrast. This material has proven highly reflective and difficult to photograph. For these two images, I made a collage of photographs of water splash. The techniques used in Photoshop have been many: clipping mask,... continue reading
As a photographer, you’ll never stop learning. However, it is sometimes challenging to find new places or new people to learn from. That is doubly true if you're unsure where to find quality photographs. The Internet is filled with websites and galleries that are open to everyone – Flickr.com is one example. Because anyone can post images, you'll soon find that it isn't easy to sift the snapshots and amateur images from the works of art. So where do you turn to advance your knowledge... continue reading

How to correct Converging Verticals.I'm sure many of you already know about the following technique, but judging by the number of uncorrected images in the Dreamstime files, I think it may be worth sharing this technique here.If you angle your lens up or down when photographing something like a tall building you will get 'Converging Verticals'.In the example below the minarets of the Taj Mahal appear to lean inwards.I know that in some cases this can be used for dramatic... continue reading

Open you image in Adobe Photoshop.1. Create new Curves Adjustment Layer.2. Select Curves Layer.3. Double click on 'Sample in image to set black point' (Set Sample Size 31x31).4. Click on the Health Skin near eye bag area to... continue reading
This is a tutorial on how to sharpen a slightly out-of-focus image WITHOUT increasing noise.If you have an image that's just slightly out-of-focus, and you try to sharpen it by just using the standard 'sharpen' filter in Photoshop, then the result is often not very good as it will also increase any 'noise' that may be present in the image.This is especially true of images that are high contrast and have been shot in low light levels with a high ISO setting.... continue reading
