  • Symmetry

    by Martincp | 21st of September, 2014

    First blog on DT. I like to photograph symmetry particularly in manmade objects whenever I can. To me this is something that is aesthetically pleasing and provides me with a challenge as a photographer. Here a couple - there are more in my portfolio (even though I admit... More

    by Wordplanet | 20th of September, 2013

    It's time to get out and shoot some Halloween photos if you haven't already. I'm heading to the farmer's market tomorrow to get some pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn and mums, and planning some shoots for next week on my friend Sarah's front porch. Her house was built in the... More

    by Bradcalkins | 25th of September, 2009

  • How I Shoot RAW Images!

    by Aughty | 18th of November, 2008

    by Wysiwygfoto | 20th of October, 2007

    Most all cameras these days have a built in light meter. Do you need one outside the camera to compose a great image? Well, it depends. On a digital SLR (at least the Canon cameras I own) you have 4 metering options with relation to utilizing the light meter in the... More
  • Exposure compensation and Metering mode

    by Aryanimagery | 13th of September, 2007

    In lots of article and books I have seen that exposure compensation depends on the color, and of course 18% grey and blah blah. Now, my realization is it also depends on the metering mode. Let say your metering mode is Spot, so you just need to worry about 2-3 % of the image,... More
