I’ve had a very informal, unstructured education in photography. It took a very long time for me to start thinking and seeing like a photographer. Hopefully, these tutorials will help get you there quicker.
So you’d like to buy a compact camera, huh? But where do you even start?
If you use Lightroom to organize and process your photos, you’ll know that sometimes it can get a bit sluggish (especially when you’re working with hundreds of photos). Thankfully, there are some time saving tips to help you from start to finish.
It’s been said that the best camera in the world is the one you always have with you. For many of us, that camera is in our smartphones. And with a plethora of apps available, it’s now easier than ever to get creative with our devices.
Free stock photos aren’t that hard to find on the Internet; there are many sites that provide them.
After a few years of taking photos for fun and as a professional, I’ve slowly learned that the one thing every great photo needs is…
Having been declared 2013’s word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries, “selfie” (please resist every urge to roll your eyes) is now cemented in our cultural lexicon whether we like it or not.

I could inundate you with the technical details of your camera phones and write down photo jargon that will only serve to confuse everyone (even me). But you can probably find that information on your own (I did). What you really want, is a quick and painless way to take better photos with your camera phone right away.
3D has penetrated most of our visual spaces, from movies and games, to TV sets and handheld devices. What once was thought to be a gimmicky novelty shown in state fairs and theme parks, 3D has now gained a whole new following of artists and creators experimenting to find new ways to implement it in their own work. If nothing else, it’s also just a fun effect to do!
When one thinks of underwater photography, images of fish and corals and scuba gear tend to populate the mind. Ilse Moore’s work, however, takes underwater photography in an entirely different direction. Her fine art work is taking photography to new heights (or in this case, new depths).
What’s the best way to improve your photos? In my experience, I’ve found that improving my photographs begins with a good frame of mind and a set of philosophies.
