How to build a portfolio, Ansel Adams & more

Added by bgs | May 25, 2018   12:34 PM | TrackBack

20180524_155912_3cancient_bristlecone_connie_cassinetto-110px.jpgThis week is a hectic one for many sites. The reason is that a new data protection regulation kicks in from May 25th onwards. We as a community are also affected by this, so please read on.

Another important item for this week; we have kick-started our new "Editor's Choice" selection of images with an image from member Larry Mannino (Larry E30) now shown on our homepage, congratulations Larry!

Enjoy your weekend and remember to take a camera or two with you, no matter where you go.

Is the Nikkor 50mm/1.2 any good?

Added by bgs | January 6, 2018   9:41 AM | TrackBack

20180104_141217_07.santaf1.2_jnadelberg_110px.jpgI hope 2018 started off well for you. Snow sprinkles the fields outside my window while I am writing this years first newsletter here at the northern camp with temperatures a few degrees below zero C. The wind that made itself heard last night is resting its muscles and some black birds are fighting for top positions in a large tree nearby.

What is that "something" we take photographs of?

20171213_092303_2.manta_divers_marjani_110px.jpgThere is always something happening in the world of Nikonians. This week we have rolled out further improvements in the community: (1) it is now easier to see articles related to a specific topic (aka keyword/theme) (see this post) and (2) we are now showing small "overview thumbnails" of images linked into a discussion as well, not only for those that are uploaded.

Welcome to this weeks newsletter.

A new episode of Martin Turner's "Shooting the $2million image" premium article series is available. Martin discusses the "human factor" and how vital this is for successful professional photographers. He adds "One survey across many industries suggested that technical skills only accounted for around 20% of career success. The other 80% ? Ability to work with people." Read the article

Is incorrect focus a deadly sin?

Added by bgs | November 8, 2017   7:01 AM | TrackBack

20171103_092354_1.cattle_egret_topper1946_600pxh-110.jpgHope your photography is doing well, no matter outside temperatures and the weather conditions that you might experience at your location. I am packing up at my nordic getaway heading "down south" to continental Europe this week and expect some good shooting opportunities along the way. We have lovely foggy mornings with plenty of roe deer and the odd moose out browsing and I will for sure keep some of Ramón's (jrp) "photography sins" in mind while shooting.

_PJJ2733-110px.jpgWriting this week from my nordic getaway, pretty much smack on the 60th north latitude. I am heading out to the Baltic coast today for some landscape and bird shooting and reminded myself to pack enough rain covers and cleaning cloths for the gear.
