We've created a new section on the site to include bridge or hybrid cameras. Bridge cameras span the divide between compacts and a full blown SLR camera. Typically they offer advanced controls similar to what you'd get on a SLR.
You know, the world takes on a completely different perspective when you're taking photographs at an incredibly high frame rate. The video below is by Tom Guilmette and it truly is stunning.
OK, that got your attention! I expect it's the dream of many to quit the nine to five, travel the world, and take some pretty amazing photographs along the way. Not many people can or actually do turn this dream into reality.
Elijah Soloman however, is somebody who did actually do this.
Rome is a city full of history and historical monuments, most of them easily accessible and in the open air, plenty of opportunities to take breathtaking photos. Being originally built over 7 hills, it's also not difficult to find places where it's possible to observe a beautiful panorama looking at the skyline of the city. The charme of Rome is increased at night, when traffic slows down and there is a more relaxed atmosphere. Below is a selection of 10 locations where to take interesting pictures, with samples of my photos and contributions from other authors.
To be able to photograph the Northern Lights, a bit of planning is required. In fact, the Northern Lights are only visible in the "Auroral Oval" at high latitudes around the Polar Circles, and where there is no light pollution, far from the big cities. Some well known areas for photographing the Northern Lights include Lapland and the north of Scandinavia, Alaska and Iceland. It's more difficult to find a good spot in the Southern hemisphere around the Antarctic Circle. In the Southern hemisphere the Southern Lights are called the Aurora Australis.
The Royal Photographic Society in the UK are offering bursaries for photography projects which promote environmental awareness. Each bursary can be up-to &3000 and can cover photographic equipment, travel costs, and other related expenses. This seems like a great opportunity and one not to be missed.
Frogs can make some of the best photographic subjects. They're excellent at sitting still when asked nicely, and generally aren't too agitated by having a rather cumbersome macro lens thrust in their face. They come in all shapes and colours (even a few transparent ones!), and often adorn rather remarkable patterns and camouflage.
