Adobe Photoshop is the number 1 graphical editing and post processing application available. It's often possible to improve an average photo, through post processing, into a stunning image, and below is a list of some of the most common techniques.
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.
Venice is a beautiful City which offers many brilliant photo opportunities. Below is a small collection of photos of Venice taken by photographers who have managed to capture something special about the City floating on water. Don't forget to check out Dominique's post 'How and where to take less conventional photographs in Venice' for a slightly different perspective.
Motion Blur is a technique intended to capture the movement, instead of having it frozen. The most common way to understand what a motion blur picture is, is to think of a vehicle moving and impressing the sensor in a long exposure photo, and recording a blurred trail.
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.
Fujifilm have recently announced a new model to their arsenal of pretty decent hybrid or bridge cameras, namely the SL1000. The big selling point of the SL1000 has got to be the huge zoom capabilities offering 50x optical zoom WITH image stabilisation. Very impressive!
It's a 16 megapixel camera and with the lens you've got an equivalent focal length of 24-1200mm. That's some serious magnification. Unlike a number of Fujifilm's previous bridge cameras, such as the finepix HS30, the SL1000 uses a lithium ion battery pack rather than AA batteries.
