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.
 
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.
 
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.
 

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.


 

There's an exhibition of photographs of Captain Scott's ill fated Antarctic expedition running at the Chris Beetles Fine Photographs Gallery in London.

Taken by Scott's expedition camera artist - Herbert Ponting - it's a collection of some 60 breathtaking photographs. This is well worth a visit if you're in London, and even if you're not, you can still grab a look on the gallery website.


 

The San Francisco International Photography Exhibition is still accepting submissions up until May 8th 2013, and it's open to anyone and everyone

There's some pretty great monetary prizes if you win, namely, $3,000, $2,000 and $1,000 for first, second and third place respectively. This sounds like a great opportunity to sift through your photography portfolio and dig out some of your best!


 

Forrest Tanaka has produced an excellent video about astrophotography. So if this is an area of photography you'd like to learn more about, it's a great idea to go through his videos first.

This is the first video in a series which covers telescopes particularly suitable ones to go for. so I'm guessing Forrest will be adding a number of further videos which cover the other aspects of astrophotography.


 
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.
