    by Rosariomanzo | 13th of July, 2012

    by Risto40 | 29th of October, 2011

    It's just amazing what a single small pocket flashlight can do with images, instead of using onboard flash. One evening I was taking pictures in a dark room. My "model" was a small alcohol glass. When I shoot on tripod, I always use manual focus in liveview mode active. This... More
