We’re living in a visual society. Every day, we see new ways of visual advertising. Some of the messages presented without the use of words can be very powerful, as if there's some subliminal code that makes us think. As photographers, we are used to delivering messages by solely providing the image. Or are we? This series is the go-to resource for compelling visual storytelling in landscape photography and closes this week with advanced communication techniques that help create spectacular images. Join me now as... READ MORE

Fine Art photographer Pascal Goet has been capturing macro photos for 26 years, but it’s only today that his work made its way onto our radar. His series Mask & Totem features some of the most colorful, anthropomorphic insects he’s photographed—insects that looks like mysterious, intricate masks.Some of the “faces” are easier to see than others, but each begins to look like an alien or animal figure the longer you stare at it, especially if you attend one of Goet’s exhibitions and see the images...

Jagged peaks, precipitous drops, deep and sweeping valleys: mountainous landscapes are unquestionably some of the most photogenic places on the planet. It shows too – take a look at any photo magazine or website, and you are likely to find not just one or two, but dozens of images of mountains.Mountains are a landscape torn apart by the steady pressure of plate tectonics and erosion, and in that drama is the potential for spectacular photography. Why then are so many images of mountains boring? Because landscape... READ MORE

Researchers working on atomic-level storage have found a way to store massive amounts of data in a tiny space. With a bit more improving, this technology could mean memory cards with tens of terabytes of storage.The technology was developed by scientists at TU Delft, and it works by shuffling chlorine atoms around on a copper surface, where they naturally form a square grid. By leaving empty spots and rearranging the atoms around them like a sliding puzzle, they create patterns that can be read, not... READ MORE

If you enjoy light painting photography, I think this review of tools from Light Painting Brushes (LPB) will interest you. All photographers know that light is essential to taking a successful photograph. At night, when light is limited, light painting can be a fun and artistic form of photography that may stretch a shutter-bug’s creativity by creating light, solely for the purpose of photographing light. If you are new to light painting please read my article – Beginner’s Guide to Light Painting for some ideas... READ MORE

Italian street photographer Riccardo Magherini tells The Phoblographer. His series, BKK, is the latest of this works that feature cities from Tokyo to Hong Kong, Florence and NYC.... READ MORE

I was delighted this week to see that one of my photographs from a recent wedding was selected as an ‘award winner’ in the ‘All About the Light’ category ISPWP’s quarterly competition.

Credit for the method I used really has to go to the awesome Erin & Ben Chrisman of Chrisman Studios in Charleston, USA. I joined them on their... READ MORE

Nikon and Canon cameras have a button on the camera body to enable a bracketing mode. Sony cameras don’t…I’d buried under the shooting mode menu. Once you know what you’re looking for and configure your settings, it’s very easy to switch in and out of bracketing mode.

Ezequiel CabreraWhether you are into nature photography, architecture, art, people, places or sports, this world has a special gem somewhere waiting for you to capture it on film. There are some locations in this world filled with beauty, magic, drama and amazing landmarks. In truth, there are hundreds of places on Earth that give quite a performance in front of the camera and each photography artist probably already polished his own “photography bucket list.” If you think you saw them all or if you are...

Seems like the more I listen, the more I hear people talking about the gear, the business of photography, the widgets. Let us not forget the simple love of photography. I understand why there’s so much rhetoric in our industry about the business of photography and the gear and the gadgets. There is the common stereotype that most creative people aren’t good business people. There is fear. Gear is easier to talk about than vision. Exposures are exact, the camera dials have numbers. There is... READ MORE

If you want to take your wildlife photography to the next level, then you need to look at capturing the character and personality of an animal. This makes for a much more appealing image, rather than simply a bird on a stick. A photo always needs to tell a story, but I think many photographers don’t realize that this applies to wildlife photography too.Even though we can’t directly relate to most wild animals, it is still possible to document a story through a single image, or...

"Certain aesthetics appeal to me when I shoot at night. It's a lot about the mystery of long exposures." Mikko Lagerstedt, a Finland-based night photographer, tells the Phoblographer. Lagerstedt's series Invisible by Day focuses on some of the beauty of this world that is unseen during the daylight hours. "When you photograph at night, you can capture a particular atmosphere to your photos. At night, everything looks different, and it inspires me to capture unique looking landscapes."... READ MORE

In late 2014 I was given a few pieces of piping. What you might call trash, but I call the ring of fire. It ended up being an incredibly useful tool in my photography. I quickly decided to add it to my (now literal) bag of tricks along with Prisming, Lens Chimping, my Broken Freelens, Anamorphics, etc).These days camera lenses are designed so well that they’ll nearly never create a flare. The coatings are so incredible that even against the brightest, harshest sunlight they will not flare... READ MORE

Let’s say I want to start a vegetable garden.  So I go out to the backyard, rip up some grass, and scatter seeds over the dirt.Then I water haphazardly (mostly whenever I have time or think about it) and wait.Many of the seeds get blown away by the wind.When plants start to come in, some bear a little, but others are crowded out by weeds and produce nothing.  So I don’t get much out of it overall.What would you think if I then looked at my dismal harvest, scoffed, and said...
