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.
 

Nikon has announced it's newest digital SLR camera, the Nikon D7100. As a successor to the hugely popular Nikon D7000, the D7100 will come with weather sealing (very useful for when it's raining out) and an impressive 24 megapixel sensor.

In terms of the line-up in Nikon's SLR range, the D7100 will comfortably sit in between the Nikon D5200, considered to be a consumer level camera and the Nikon D600, the full frame monster.

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.
 

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.


 
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.
 
Obviously, it would be great if it was possible to make a bit of an income selling photographs. BBC Click recently published a short video about how to sell your photographs online.
