A few

Use what talents you possess; The woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best." -William Blake

All of these were taken by me.

Sorry about the tags, but some people have sticky paws and I don't know where I'm going with this photography thing. Last thing I want is someone stealing my shots.
Which has happened before.

I don't edit my photos (besides tagging). I just resize them so they'll fit on this page.

As you can tell, I love nature.
Oceans, lakes, mountains, trees. And birds of course.

I apologize for the layout being so boring.

If you have any questions, comments or just want to talk photography, feel free to neomail me.
All feedback is helpful.

Thanks. =)

March 24, 2011 - COMPLETE OVERHAUL. Every photo has been replaced.


The End. =)

Tips


I've been asked a few times for some photography tips, so here are a few basic hints to better photos.
Keep in mind these are tips for digital photography.


PRACTICE.
Practice, practice, practice. That is always tip #1. Always. For everything.
Take 100 photos of your cat if you want to. Or of a plant. Either way, I bet if you look at the first one you took and the last, the last will be the better photo. I don't mean do this once and you'll be great. Apply it to everything. I look at photos I took a year ago and compare it to photos I recently took and there is a huge difference. Trust me on this.

RULE OF THIRDS
For the rule of thirds, imaginary lines are drawn dividing the image into thirds. The most important elements are placed where these lines intersect.

In addition to using the intersections, it also helps to use a 2 to 1 ratio (thus dividing the image both horizontally and vertically into thirds) so that nothing is dead center, which makes for a boring image. Instead, when placing the horizon line of a landscape, or the eye line of a person, use the lower or upper third as an approximate guide.

Examples

Good:

In landscapes like this it really helps to divide sky and landscape in the 1-to-2 ratio, here two thirds landscape and one third sky.

Bad:

Here the image is divided horizontally into two equal parts, making for a static image.
In this image there is only minimal content on the very edge of the lower third, leaving the viewer wondering: What did the picture taker want to show me?


ANGLES
Common objects can look alien when captured from an unusual perspective. You should experiment with the camera angle until the resulting image satisfies both your artistic and conceptual expectations.

LINES OF DIRECTION
This is a great thing to know if your going for a more artistic look in your photographs.

Lines are strong visual elements, directing the attention of the gaze, creating depth and dynamic action.

However, lines can also be very distracting. For example, if they pass through a person's head, they seem to 'cut' it off like in the image below.


If the whole image is tilted, this effect is amplified by the strong lines, as in this photo;
Here it seems that the person is walking into some bad situation - or one could simply say that it would have been a better picture, had the lines been straight.

If the scene or photo you would like to achieve doesn't fit the rule, don't worry.
Rules are meant to be broken





Keep in mind, if you "capture the moment", it's a great shot.
