Heart of the city

I’ve been around Europe a lot lately and I find this to be completely true.The reason for this is that you can visit plenty of new places and shoot beautiful photos of them, but you are still constrained by time, weather and knowledge. You will never get to know a city in a few days like locals do. It takes months, maybe years to go deep into every street and see the city from different angles and decide which is the best one and... continue reading

An illustrated virtual guide to Gargano in Apulia (south of Italy)

My microstock photography is often about travel in my beautiful country, so why do not start a blog about the marvellous destinations that my country has to offer? I start with something I really know, something I really love and something I really shooted thousands of times in my life: even if I live in a different italian region (Emilia Romagna in the cold north) the place I call "my second home" is the charming italian Gargano area, part of the biggest south italy region:... continue reading

Special Effects Software

Like many people I have been intrigued by special effects achieved with software editing applications that can enhance your photos. Will the effects make the photo better or worse? The only way to find out is to apply the effect. Be sure to work from a copy of your original photo in case the effect does not work or save under a different name from your original. I have tried combining photos, using painting special effects and using reversal color special effects. Reversal... continue reading

Mount Pico (Portuguese: Montanha do Pico) is a stratovolcano located on Pico Island, in the mid-Atlantic archipelago of the Azores.

In 1562–64, an eruption on the southeast flank produced... continue reading

Packing Efficiently For Shooting In Developing Nations.

In six days I leave for Ethiopia. Each time I go to Africa, I have to reassess what I’m carrying with me. Did I use it last time? How much use was it to me? Is there something better I could be using next time?This is my tenth trip to Africa in less than seven years. I’m a missionary, and on most trips (though not this one) my primary purpose is documentation. You may have other reasons for shooting, but the basic equipment list will be the same, except for the choice of lenses. Over... continue reading
