    by Ellenboughn | 17th of June, 2008

    Fresh out of ideas? Your creative meter stuck on zero? Got the late winter idea blahs? I recommend reading this. It’s rather long but hey, if you are stuck in a morass of boredom with your creative brain flat lining, what else do you have to do? Or you can go to YouTube... More

  • A day out with my camera

    by Jaquiht | 18th of August, 2017

    Tomorrow I am going to my first ever proper photography event. The local birds of prey centre has photography days every now and then, and I am going to one. The reason I am going is because my camera-related behaviour has led my family to view me as a cause for concern.... More
  • The small stuff

    by Jaquiht | 11th of August, 2017

    My favourite type of photography is almost certainly macro. Ideally, the type of macro that involves chasing small insects around to no avail in summertime, although I do also have a soft spot for grovelling around in decaying leaves in autumn in order to photograph fungi.... More

  • To Macro or not to Macro

    by Rzachariasse | 27th of May, 2017

      Some years ago I followed a course from a famous Dutch photographer. Well, he won some cool prices, but I didn't know anything about Dies Groot. Until I followed the course that is. And I must say it was great to see so many like-minded people crammed together in... More

  • Wow factor - Film lenses with adapters on digital cameras

    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

  • A world we hardly notice - The world of Macro

    by Julijamiova | 19th of August, 2016

    One of the reasons why i love macro photography is because it allows us to see and feel a different world. An untouched world of order and perfection. The ways nature has on doing and creating things. It's amazingly beautiful. This is a photo of an ant eating chocolate... More
