  • Sometimes bad weather is not so bad

    by Moravaldes | 12th of February, 2017

    The popular belief is that you can only take good photos on sunny days, but a day with storm clouds can give a dramatic and expressive atmosphere to a place that on sunny days is not so attractive to photograph, To take the picture of the first image, I simply measured the... More

  • Trailer Travels

    by Lesterphotography | 11th of February, 2017

    A recent trip to the So. Rim, Grand Canyon during a snow storm created some challenging photographic conditions so I thought I would share as it might be helpful to less experienced shooters as I once was. It was cold, snowing and wind driven conditions, making it less... More

  • Published in issue #5 of DIVE magazine

    by Jeremykeithbrown | 11th of February, 2017

    I love DIVE magazine in its new incarnation, very different to all the other diving magazines out there, more like a photography focused coffee table book. So I was very please to see that they've used one of my silky shark photos on page 9 of the latest edition, albeit cropped... More

  • The best things about frogfish

    by Jeremykeithbrown | 10th of February, 2017

    I think it's safe to say that the long lure frogfish, Antennarius multiocellatus, is not classically beautiful. However, they have loads of character and are, I would argue, so comical in form and behaviour as to make them, well, cute. Although highly camouflaged ambush... More

    by Doubleclick7 | 9th of February, 2017

    I got my first film lens to digital camera adapter in 2012, when I received a Minolta lens as a gift. I work with a Canon 7D. My daughter, a wedding photographer, told me about using an adapter. They aren’t expensive, so I gave it a try. The adaptor fits between your camera... More
