  • I've lived the Legacy

    by Daddiomanottawa | 3rd of June, 2013

    I shoot micro four thirds. Unlike many, I'm not a DSLR to m4/3 convert. Although they fascinate me, especially full frame, I know little to nothing about cameras using APS-C,APS-H or full frame sensors except what I have read on the internet. My decision to go micro four... More
  • It's all about the children

    by Tempestz | 8th of May, 2013

    As mentioned in a previous blog of mine, capturing the perfect images of children sometimes means letting kids behave naturally to catch some great candid shots. Think of children exploring a beach at low tide and the expressions on their faces as they find a starfish or... More

    When I began with stock photography back in July 2011. I was using mostly kit lenses like my 18-55 and 75-300 kit lenses from Sony. I tought that this kit lenses will satisfy my needs in photography, since I was beginner at a time. Well to be honest those lenses was pretty... More

  • Bird Photography: Equipment

    by Silasfirth | 7th of December, 2011

    A couple years ago, I decided I wanted to photograph birds. After playing with several different setups, I finally bit the bullet and purchased a Canon Rebel XS and an EF 100-400mm L IS USM lens. Since then, I have come to enjoy photographing just about anything, but... More

  • Why I Chose The Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L Over The EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L

    by Edayrit100 | 16th of August, 2011

    Money is no object so ... LOL; how I wish that were true :) But it DOES matter, and matter a whole lot, so I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the 24-105 is $300 less expensive (in the Philippines) than the 24-70 and is even the more appropriate lens for me. I... More
  • Wildlife Photography: What’s in my camera bag

    by Visceralimage | 21st of January, 2011

    When I do talks for other photographers or meet with camera clubs; one of the most common questions is: what equipment do you use and what is in your camera bag. In the old days, it was pretty simple; most of us used the Nikon F5, F4... or the Canon 1V series. Now, with... More
  • Colorado!

    by Davidwattsjr | 15th of October, 2010

    Just got back from a photo shoot in Colorado - specifically, the Rocky Mountain National Park. Thought I'd share a few images of the fantastic fall colors, and the very impressive Elk Rut that takes place at this time of year. The Elk pictures were greatly aided with... More
  • Focus

    by Williamardrey | 23rd of August, 2010

    I have been having trouble with accurate focusing lately. I have the Olympus Evolt510 SLR digital camera and mostly use the kit lenses it came with for most of my pictures. I did buy a Zuiko telephoto lens last year to complement the other lenses. I'm trying to discover... More

  • Travelling light with your DSLR

    by Sebcz | 21st of May, 2008

    You have your DSLR. You have your lenses. Many of them. What do you do if you really don't want to take them ALL with you? Well, there are things to consider - how much weight you are prepared to carry and what compromises you are ready to take. My personal choice... More
  • Which Lens?

    by Kenneystudios | 25th of August, 2007

    Whenever we head out to a family function or just a day out somewhere, I always debate on which camera lens to take with me, or how many. After several hours of mentally debating it with myself, I had the decision narrowed down to two lenses: my 70m-300mm zoom, and 17mm-... More
