Tyson Rininger - The Beauty of Lightning
Lightning is one of nature's most intriguing and most deadly forms of beauty available to us as photographers. While most of us in the U.S. take lightning for granted, photographers in California rarely have the opportunity to capture this phenomenon on film. In this article, Tyson Rininger takes us through his experiences of dealing with lightning and he explains how we might capture the beauty on film.

ImageAlign Software - A Review by Robert A F van de Voort
Lens distortion - all of us have run into this type of problem at one time or another during our photography careers. The "ship's prow" effect created by leaning our camera back to capture the entire skyscraper; our model's nose larger than her hands; the room interior leaning inward and downhill. These are all examples of lens distortion, which are caused by using the incorrect lens for the job. Now, we do not have to worry about this problem any more. Grasshopper Limited's "Image Align" software has been created to remove all of these distortion problems from our images! Check out this article to learn more.

When the Elements Decide
Sometimes nature plays a hand in technical decisions.
"Setting up the camera to take the photo I realised why the rock remained so wet. A wave broke nearby, swamping my feet and the rock and drenching the camera with spray."
A Beginner's Guide to Marketing Images with Mats - Jim Fishwick
