  • Kodak Vintage Find!

    by Kenneystudios | 2nd of February, 2010

    by Nikitu | 29th of January, 2010

  • Photography in the Veins?

    by Russelllinton | 23rd of January, 2010

    I'll try to avoid turning this into one of those ego-stroking bios some professionals go into. You know, those really "deep" "meaningful" pitches about how great an artist they are. Those blurbs peppered with artistic styles, names, favorite painters, their lifelong inspirations... More

    by Astargirl | 20th of January, 2010

    Dear Camera, I'm sorry I've been neglecting you during these past months. I have plenty of excuses: the holidays were too busy, my day job has been to stressful, it's too hard to find subjects to shoot...but the truth is, I haven't been feeling that old spark lately.... More

  • Shooting in Dynamic Situations and Crowds

    by Wisconsinart | 25th of October, 2009

    If you look at the portfolios of contributors, you will notice that each individual gravitates toward certain subjects and styles. When I critique my own set of images, it's obvious that I am heavy into editorial type images. Apparently there is something about me that is... More

  • Canon features

    by Bradcalkins | 19th of October, 2009

    I suspect that almost everyone who is serious about photography has had to decide among the major brands. Whether you ended up with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus or another brand (I'm talking DSLRs here) you probably entertained two of them seriously, and then took... More
