Jessops has recently relaunched itself thanks to being purchased by Peter Jones. I think they did need to modernize, and hopefully with a slight change in direction they'll soon return to their proper place on the high street.
 
Finding the right place to take your photos can take a bit of research. Timing is also very important as a sunrise or sunset can have a dramatic effect on the composition. So, here are a few locations that I've found offer great views of New York, London, Hong Kong and Florence.
 
Fujifilm have recently announced their latest bridge camera, the FinePix S8400W. Boating a 44x optical zoom and wifi connectivity, it's certainly an interesting candidate if you're looking to update your current camera. It's a 16 megapixel camera, offering 1080i video recording at 60 frames per second and an ISO range of 100-12800.Expect a release date around May 2013.
 
Well, if you fancy having a good look at what's going on on Mars you can't go wrong by checking out Andrew Bodrov's panoramic photo. It's the result of stitching together 295 individual photographs from 2 separate cameras. A truly impressive accomplishment.
 
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.
 
Photographing lightning can provide some quite amazing results. Such photos generally require a tripod set-up and a slow shutter speed to capture multiple bursts of lightning as they leave their storm clouds and hit the earth. There are many different types of lightning, including the traditional single bolt hitting the ground, to sheet lightning between clouds, the commonly associated forked lightning as well as forms such as ball lightning and chain lightning, to name but a few.
 
There are many wondrous cities in the world, and in Europe alone, one can argue the compared merits of, say, Rome, Athens, Paris, Madrid or quite a few others. Venice, however, is in a different league from all those prestigious competitors, not only because of its sheer concentration of art in every form and shape, but also because of its unique situation : it is a city built on water, a city literally resting on millions of stilts, where water is everywhere and cars nowhere to be seen - except for the ugly appendage of Piazzale Roma, which all visitors leave behind as soon as they can upon their arrival.
 

I stumbled across Alexandre's online photography course recently. He's a mountain adventure photographer which I'm reckoning affords him the opportunity to take some truly stunning photographs.

The online courses are very comprehensive covering technicalities such as ISO, metering modes, focal length up to the more subjective areas including composition and where to get inspiration.
