  • No Tripod? Use body parts...or whatever...

    by Haslinda | 24th of April, 2011

    This really does not sound as gruesome as the title implies. Well a tripod is particularly useful when taking photographs to reduce the inevitable camera shake. But sometimes it is just not possible to drag that tripod along. Especially in places like shopping malls, museums,... More

  • Mini Review: Canon 7D for stock

    by Bradcalkins | 11th of March, 2011

    I've owned and shot with a Canon 40D for a while now, and have been very happy with it. For my personal use it is more than adequate as well. I did feel that 10MP was starting to get dated, especially when cropped - and I figured if I was going to produce 500 photos a year... More

  • Why zooms rock (Part 2)

    by Bradcalkins | 23rd of February, 2011

    A while ago, I did a blog on prime lenses and their strengths - but there is still a case for zooms: 1. When you can't move or can't get closer! People often refer to 'sneaker zoom' with prime lenses - meaning they walk closer or further to adjust framing. That is... More
