  • Spectator Sports

    by Ellenboughn | 1st of April, 2008

    As a photographer you need to be the most focused of all spectators at sporting events not only to make the best images but to keep from getting into the action yourself. To see what happens when a photographer forgets where he is, go to this video before reading on. There... More

    by Ellenboughn | 12th of February, 2008

  • Composition

    by Ellenboughn | 12th of December, 2007

    by Ellenboughn | 17th of February, 2007
