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.
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.

the Elements Decide
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."
Beginner's Guide to Marketing Images with Mats - Jim Fishwick
our images can be one of the most difficult aspects of our
jobs as photographers. While most of us can produce images
worth selling, we can fall short when it comes to actually
marketing these images to buyers. This article explores the
possibilities of varying our marketing approach through the
use of artistic mats. Through the creation of a unique presentation,
we may find it easier to market our images. If you are interested
