You’ll come across ideas to improve your photography, tips, and tricks to give your photographs a bit of spice, photography theory that you thought you’d never want to learn, camera hardware reviews, and some photo retouching stuff too – because every photo needs to be finessed… You’ll also find some very interesting byte-sized tips in the Tiny Tips segment.

Some of the content on the site dates back to 2004 when Susheel started writing about photography on BlogSpot (now Blogger). However, the domain name BeyondPhotoTips.com was registered only in 2007; and that’s how this website was started.

Why Do We Write?

We write these articles about photography because we want to share what we’ve learned about it over the years. Photography is a never-ending journey. Over time, we learn that we just ‘don’t know what we don’t know’. As with all art, and forms of creative expression, there is no limit to what we can do with photography, and so we ourselves continue to learn … and to share our learnings with all of you.

This website’s comments, Twitter, Facebook page, and other ‘meeting places’ also serve as a loosely bound community… a place where photographers are welcome to comment and to share their experiences, further enriching our online experience. They’re a place where casual photographers can learn from experienced ones, and where we can learn from our community. We love that interaction! So click on one of the links below … wherever you’re most active, and say hi!
