  • Romanian comfort food (part I - the ingredients)

    by Catarii | 18th of October, 2017

    If I should make a count about Romanians' favorite ingredients or foods I would get to a very simple conclusion: meat (a lot of it, mostly pork), mamaliga (polenta), telemea (a Romanian cheese, a bit similar to feta, but better in taste - sorry... More
  • Bokeh - behind the lens

    by Yellowind | 17th of October, 2017

    So wikipedia says: "In photography, bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens" ... that was a part of the article and I believe everyone can find and read it :) I won't write here about usual bokeh without... More

  • Learn from the refusals

    by Gagyeos | 4th of October, 2017

      Darn, my photo got refused. Never mind, I will make another one and submit it when I catch some time. STOP. That is not a good thing to do. Have you at least checked the email you received based on refusal or you've just deleted it after reading the subject line?... More
  • I'd like an overhead food photo please!

    by Tangie | 3rd of October, 2017

    To me, an avid gourmand, food photography is not only a real treat, but also a guilty pleasure. I spend quite some time looking at food photos and I can assure you it is a very healthy habit. It keeps me away from actually eating everything I'd like to taste so I just love... More

  • Photography as a game

    by Tarboaca | 21st of September, 2017

    It is well known that performance sports begin at an early age. But what about photography? I ask you this because of my recent experience with my children. Concerned about the fact that my daughters (like most children today) want to use the smartphones and... More
  • All about chocolate

    by Alionaz | 19th of September, 2017

    It says that 99% of people love chocolate, other 1% lies. I don’t know if it’s true but it could be.   We can eat it, drink it, have a nice spa with it, find our health with it and so many things we can do with this perfect ingredient. “…well and getting some... More

      I believe we can all agree that the Fly Agaric (Amanita Muscaria) is, by far, the most recognizable mushroom in the world. It is the Poster-boy for trouble, the Icon for poisonous mushrooms. However, not many people know that it's widely consumed throughout the northern... More
  • Why my photographs aren’t selling?

    by Tru9ja | 13th of September, 2017

    There could be many reasons why we are here. I can assure you many are here because they desire to sell their photographs and make some extra cash. Having joined with that good intention, the reality on the ground is not what you initially envisaged. Sales are low. Not... More
