Sometimes, the simplest techniques can create a big impact and improve the images you take. For example, when shooting against the sun or bright street lights, instead of having a boring white blob of light, you can tweak your settings a little bit and achieve ‘starbursts’ to add more impact. Starbursts are those little twinkly […]

 (Edit: This post was supposed to go live on the last day of 2013, but Bluehost decided to go down on NYE and my website wasn’t accessible.) I don’t know about you but, for me, 2013 was a fantastic year. So many big changes happened in our life and, maybe for the first time since I’ve […]

Maintaining a portfolio website is a lot of work. Keeping track of your backups is a lot of work. Trying to sell prints is also a lot of work. Combining all three together? Much better! Especially when all the tools are provided to make it easier and manageable. Those of you who read me regularly […]

Let’s face it. Hardware failure does happen, and not just to other people. I’ve had 2 hard drives die on me in the past and a third one is acting a little weird lately. The beauty of digital photography is that you don’t need a dedicated storage room to put away all your archives and […]

Last year, the good folks at TravelSupermarket.com hosted a photoblogging contest about “capturing color” in travel photos. The contest turned out to be quite popular with more than 3000 great images submitted by many participants, bloggers or not (you can view some of them over at the World Photography Map). A year later, they’re at […]

A histogram: you might have heard of this weird nerdy word thrown in by photographers. While it might sound like a shady social media platform, it’s an essential tool to learn and master if you want to have full control on your images. Picture this: It’s summer and you are taking outdoor photos under the […]

If you’ve ever been wondering what happened in the past few weeks, here’s the answer: My wife and I have finally moved and settled in our new city: Granada, Spain. We left Chiang Mai after 3 years and spent a month in Abu Dhabi in the UAE to do our research and catch up with […]

It’s been a while since I last posted here so I just wanted to update about my whereabouts and new adventures. For those of you who don’t know yet, after living 3 years in Chiang Mai in Thailand, my wife and I have decided to move on and try a different place to settle. This […]

One thing we often hear in various photography forums on the net, is that Photography is dead, or at least dying. Disillusioned Purists claim that Digital Photography already soiled the purity of Film Photography. Later, the emergence of photography techniques like HDR further corrupted a critically wounded art. And now, the executioner is ready to […]

David DuChemin, renowned Travel and Humanitarian photographer, describes landscape photographers quite accurately: “Anyone who gets up that early, or stays out that late, to make photographs, or hauls a heavy tripod up a hill to do so, can’t possibly have all their marbles”. Landscape photography might seem like an easy field. You just point your camera […]

Have you ever wondered how travel photographers create stunning images that tell stories about people’s lives? What goes on through their minds and how they end up choosing a few photos out of thousands? If yes, then you should check out this new documentary and travel photography Ebook from Light Stalking. Rabari – Encounters with […]

In the past year, I have been tagged many times to participate in blogging games, listing most popular posts, with specific categories (most popular post, most controversial post etc…). But truth is, I’ve never participated, simply because I don’t have a travel blog. I have a photography website and the categories didn’t really fit. At […]

In my opinion, a successful photo is one that would stop you in your tracks, make you look again and evoke an emotion or a feeling, whether it’s anger, peace, sadness, happiness, an escape to foreign lands or just a simple “what the hell?” moment. A lot of people complain that their photos are boring. […]

Let’s be honest. There are tons of eBooks or websites on the internet teaching you how to become a better photographer in just a few hours of reading. Some even claim they’ll teach you how to take great photos, retouch them in Lightroom or Photoshop and set up your own successful business in just 3 hours […]

Why considering yourself to be a purist in photography is just nonsense.

A few weeks ago, we went to Vientiane in Laos for a visa run and a 6-months tourist visa for Thailand. We stayed in town for 3 days and did not get to visit much. The only monument we got to visit in this dull capital was the Patuxai, also known as the Victory Gate. […]
