Widen the portfolio exposure.

It is always good to have an image which sells well, such as this banana bread picture which has now reached level 4 But it is also good when a new image sells which widens the exposure of your image portfolio, such as this raw salmon picture, This image was taken nearly a year ago, with some images it is just a case of patients, if it is a good picture someone will want to use it eventually. 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.

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
