I know some people who like to take sharp photographs. Because of this, their images tend to have a certain set of parameters to ensure that their images are crisp and clear from foreground to background.
Are you like that?Read More »How to Get More Detail in Your Photographs
How did you discover photography? When I was young, an aunt gave me a toy camera. The photographs it produced seemed magical. I was around 7-8 years old at the time and creating these images as I travelled left a lasting impression on me.Read More »Helping Your Child Discover Photography
Scott Bass is a practitioner of Parkour, a Photographer and Cinematographer. To those of you who have followed his work, you’ll recognise his videos “Live On” and “Constant Motion“, considered by many to be outstanding examples of Parkour Videography. His work often features well-known parkour athletes Daniel Ilabaca and Phil Doyle among others, and his unique position as a practitioner himself gives him a unique understanding of his subject, and makes filming parkour that much easier.Read More »Filming Parkour – an Insiders Guide
Often people mistakenly believe that they need to go to a strange new land to discover new things to photograph. I discovered otherwise just yesterday.
Yesterday, I deliberately got lost in my city, Chennai. I went into a section of Chennai that I’d not been to before, and I discovered a whole new part of the city that I never knew existed. It was a simple step; wander through a section of town that you’ve not been through before, look around you at the people, buildings, shops. For me, it was like I’d gone back through time, to when the city was simpler, less modern, more rural. You may not discover new vistas around each bend, but give it a shot.

I’ve just finished looking through approximately 550 of your photographs. A tough undertaking, and one of my own making because I’ve put off writing this post far too often.
However, there is a bright side to it. Here, we have 113 of your photographs that are really cool. They’re all my favourite photographs from the ones you submitted to the Beyond Phototips Flickr Group. Please take a look at them, and if you think the thumbnails look cool visit the group and check them out. If you would like your photographs to be featured here, I invite you to submit them to the flickr group. I’ll take a look at the submissions and post some of my faves real soon.
Hope you enjoy viewing the results of your own hard work.
When a Canon and a Nikon come together… … at least they’re not a Pentax. 😛 Joey L & The Photo Club.
A while ago, I wrote about how to retrograde your DSLR. A guide to temporarily hide all the digital/smart features that your digital camera has, and turn it into something a bit more dated. Yes, it is a strange thing to do… But you know how people go back to writing with pen and paper to really connect to their thoughts? This may help you to do the same with your photography and compositions.
Now, let’s look at how you can use that retro DSLR to gain a deeper understanding of photography and to change the way you think with a camera in your hand. Let’s get started!Read More »Photo Project: Going Retro With Your Camera
