Wide Angles- How to create panoramas for your portfolio -update

This post was first published in 2009. During the 5 years since I posted it, I have come to important conclusions, I wish to share with you.1) of all, there is a market to Panoramic stock images. It's not the mass sales of mine, but occasionally, a buyer finds my panoramas viable for purchase.2)The progress in technology makes it easier to shoot and a lot simpler to compose. Software like Picasa orMicrosoft ICE are available for free and produce (especially ICE) professional grade results.... continue reading

A Hint for Photographing Golf Courses

Here's an easy hint if you are planning to take some golf course scenery shots - take a golf ball with you!Place the ball close to the flag stick and any golfer seeing your photos will dream that it is their great shot captured at that special moment. They will infer that they are part of the scene.Scout out possible scenes in advance and get permission from the golf course manager to photograph the course when no one is on it. Then return in early morning before sunrise when the light is... continue reading

First video for a world wide event

Today is my first time that I jump in the world of video and in this occasion a planetary event that is the World Summit on nuclear security. The summit will take place on the 24-25 March 2014 at The Hague, Netherlands where all the important world leader will meet each others to discuss about the nuclear issues. In the meantime, all the city will be a kind of bunker. To go to work will be a challenge or it will be like a maze to try to get out for me this next week ;)For... continue reading

Wide panoramas

Panoramas are very interesting when it comes to landscape photography. There is a sense of grandeur about them and the wide format makes them compelling.I have had a fascination for panoramas since a long time. There are many ways to create them and some of the most powerful tools are even opensource.My workflow as a hobbyist, is very simple.When I find a subject that seems to have a panorama in it, I stand at a position that could serve as the horizontal center of the photograph. I take... 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

Putting things into perspective

If you have an SLR or dSLR camera then chances are, you are wondering which lens to buy, which working focal length to invest in. Well in case you haven’t figured it out yet, the answer is simple (in the sense of choosing your focal length), get what you need for the things you like shooting the most. And please don’t ask about “how X zoom” the lens has, as that is just a marketing trick and means nothing about the lens really. A 70-200mm zoom lens is less useful than a 24mm fixed length if... continue reading

Going ultra wide - my new toy

Hi,Like any other photography enthusiastic it was clear to me that my vacation in NY will include a trip to B&H (actually there were 3 of those trips :) ).Since the last lens I purchased was ~ 3 years ago I knew I won't be able to hold myself from buying a new one.For some times now I had my eyes on the Nikon 10.5mm F2.8 fisheye, but it was very expensive where I live.I found a perfect condition second handed lens in B&H which made the decision real easy for me.I know a lot... continue reading

Fisheye Fun in Florida

Before leaving on our spring break vacation to Florida, on kind of a whim after some of the Micro 4/3 banter on the Dreamstime blog, I bought myself a fisheye lens to bring along.Doesn't every photographer have a secret wish to use a fisheye lens at somepoint?There is something so exotic about that superwide effect.For most situations its not a very practical lens to use but for those special occasions it provides the perfect effect.Especially with interiors or when you need to get really... continue reading
