  • Hobby Photographer

    by Machols | 21st of October, 2015

    Ever since I can remember I've been fascinated by images and creating them myself. It has been an on-again off-again relationship however. To be fully present to a moment there have been times when the camera felt like it demanded an attention that took me out of the 'picture'... More
  • The City of San Francisco

    by Lyoung403b | 2nd of September, 2015

    My friend told me about Twin Peaks. Why I had not heard of this before, I'm not sure but, I was so glad I listened to her because I was able to get a whole view of the city from above. There is so much detail in this one photo that I'm sure it would take days to actually... More

  • My Favourite Backgrounds

    by Avenikolas | 6th of March, 2015

    I would like to show you three of my backgrounds which I really love. Maybe just because all of them are simple. And of course because I just bought new camera and I want to learn what all I could do with that. :) First one was really hard to take, because I had Olympus... More

    by Harshvardhan | 27th of March, 2013

  • Really look at the details

    by Birksphotography | 9th of January, 2012

    When it comes down to trademarks it is really important to look at the details. I found out just how much detail recently on a submission where a patent number, barely visible but still there, held things up. I never noticed it until I really got zoomed in on the image... More

  • Relational Distortion

    by Thefinalmiracle | 5th of May, 2011

    Lately I have been reading a lot of music recording, arranging and mastering stuff apart, from the regular photography and editing. There is an exceptional relativity that I found in between not just in the technicalities of these two arts, but also in real life. Everyone... More

  • Ceilings, surfaces, textures and patterns (a small collection)

    by Bevanward | 12th of October, 2010

    I'm often finding myself looking up at ceilings, developing a cricked neck! I think for the amount of attention to detail that goes into the construction of ceilings, and any surface for that matter, it is a shame we don't spend more time admiring them. Below is a collection... More

  • Macro is fun !

    by Davulcu | 2nd of March, 2010

    I love macro photography and I want to share my experiences with you. 1 - Use a tripod. If you dont, then shoot in manuel focus mode , since your movements will destroy the AF point as your body moves. 2 - Sometimes you can use a ring flash. But not always. It can... More
