Here's another photography competition along the theme of 'eyes'. Picture complete are running it with a first place prize of $200.
Following on in our series of HDR photography articles, (don't forget to read Davide's how-to guide for creating your own HDR images), we've put together a collection of some great examples of HDR photography. HDR techniques are often used to dramatically change the appearance of an image, turning it more into a painting or picture rather than a photo sometimes. However, the best results are often found when using HDR more sparingly. Enjoy looking through the photos below and don't forget to click through to the photographer's websites to see more excellent pics.
Canon have come up with a great walkthrough on exposure settings in their photography guide. They also have this great little application which allows you to adjust a specific shot and immediately see what the results would be so you can gain a better understanding of how different exposure settings work.
Forrest Tanaka has produced an excellent video about astrophotography. So if this is an area of photography you'd like to learn more about, it's a great idea to go through his videos first.
This is the first video in a series which covers telescopes particularly suitable ones to go for. so I'm guessing Forrest will be adding a number of further videos which cover the other aspects of astrophotography.
Macro photography truly is a unique form of art. It brings into focus the minuscule aspects of our world that are typically too small to notice or see. A typical and insignificant part of our day is suddenly given new life and vibrancy, providing a greater understanding of the smaller world that surrounds us. As the following images demonstrate, we can finally see the extraordinary details that were hidden before photography became possible.
If, like me you're blessed with being left handed, you can now buy a camera specifically designed to our hand of choice. Now i don't know whether this would bother me personally as I think I've pretty much gotten used to using a standard camera, but everyone's different I guess!
The camera in this case is the Canon 7DL and more details can be found at the digital picture
