  • Winter fun

    by Fredbro | 28th of January, 2014

    It's amazing how people always complain about the weather: too hot, too cold, too much rain, too much humid, too much snow... Where I come from, people complain even more when it's winter time. I find that weird, since winter is so beautiful. Snow covered evergreen trees... More

  • Lesson number 1: how to buy a camera body

    by Kimdeadman | 21st of June, 2012

    When I bought my first SLR camera, I had absolutely no idea how it really worked and what to do with it. I soon worked out that just pointing an expensive lens at something and pressing a button did not automatically generate a work of art. This was a major blow for me, as... More
