A good posting on selecting, editing, and presenting your photographs. I know I am going to make one of these books, probably this fall or winter.

1. Subject blur/ Partyally blurry photographs
2. Motion blur/ Totally blurry photographs
3. Depth of field/ Wrong plan of focus
4. Over exposure/ Washed out
5. Under exposure/ Too dark
6. Incorrect white balance/ Wrong color
Three review sites :
- The Fujifilm FinePix F100fd shows low noise levels
- The camera features real image stabilisation, in the form of an anti-shake sensor in the Fuji F100fd. This feature helps reduce image blur due to low light or long zoom photography.
- Color and exposure were both good
- slightly sluggish cycle times
- exposure meter mode not available.
- problems with white balance when we are inside.
I checked all of theses parameters. I haven’t found the possibility to change the exposure meter mode.
This is a picture of Neuika which is a coral reef in
Perhaps the most gripping aspect of this photograph is the powerful display of natural ambient tones, captured in the crisp oranges, blues, and greens. The browns and greys captured in lesser intensity and filling the background are beautifully muted.
This is an extrem close shot: the resol
ution and the details of the bug are really fine.
I have no idea how the photographer did it without frightening the bug.
According to me, take shots of soccer games is very difficult because we can’t know when something interesting happens. So, photographers have to take a lot of photographs and review all of them.
I think the technique is interesting: the photographer is taking ten or maybe more pictures in a row.
This picture is not a montage: the man is really jumping horizontally. This is a metaphor for representing the flexibility of the body according to the regid design of buildings.
As light bounces off an object, it reflects the image of that object, which is the basic principle that all cameras rely on to capture images. When you hold a camera in front of your subject, to take a picture or movie, the light reflects from the scene, and strikes the lens of the camera, then forms an inverted or upside down image on the far inside wall of the camera. Another way to illustrate this concept would be to stand in a small, dark, windowless room during daylight. If you were to make a small pinhole into the center of the outside wall, light would stream into the room. The image of the outside scene beyond the wall would be projected onto the back wall. Yet, it would be upside down.

His photos are amazing because they are original. He took his pictures from a helicopter and we can see strange landscapes from the sky. My favorites are the ones from islands or
