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.
The technique of "photo stitching" has been around a while, and was used even in traditional or analogue photography, albeit in a crude way. In the past, photos were stitched together using transparent tape. Today, in the digital world, computers do the work, but the idea is still the same. The technique consists of taking several overlapping pictures and editing them with computer software (known as post processing) to obtain a single panorama covering up to 360 degrees. Some compact cameras have an integrated feature which achieves the same effect without the need for post-processing. But in order to achieve the highest quality, you often need to do it yourself.
Here's another photography competition along the theme of 'eyes'. Picture complete are running it with a first place prize of $200.
Under the price alerts tab, you can now find auctions that are soon to end where the current price is flagged as cheap compared to what the normal cost of the camera or lens would be.
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.
In this article I will cover a couple of techniques on how to take photos at night. This includes: How to take photos in low light, how to take photos with both the subject and the background brightly illuminated, how to take photos of moving objects (traffic lights at night) and how to take photos of lights (the bokeh effect). In this post I have used the following equipment: Cannon 1000D DLSR, Canon 18-55mm Kit lens, Tamron 70-300mm lens, Joby Gorilla Tripod, Simpex 1200 standard tripod. Please note that the aperture has been opened up completely for all the photos, mostly f/5.6.
