Back in 2007 I took an Interview with Photographer Alex Wise.
You can find this interview here: http://www.photoaxe.com/alex-wise-and-waterscape-photography/
Alex had a busy month in November this year, writing a tutorial about how he obtains great photographs of waterfalls.
Considering the weather conditions in November, I believe it’s the perfect time for you to read this and then take your camera, tripod and filters and go for a shooting session.
This tutorial covers the equipment needed as well as technical aspects such as: image comparison between different shutter lengths.
Alex shows in comparative pictures how an image looks like with and without filters, and explains the importance and effect of some filters used in this type of photography.
This is a must read tutorial. It is not everyday you hear a photographer saying “Miserable weather is a great time to pick up the camera and go take some waterfall photographs.”
and for post-processing of waterfall images:
Different exposures lead to overexposure or underexposure in some areas of photographs. The solution is to combine these shots in Photoshop. Alex shows how to do this step-by-step, and then how to obtain the final image with extra color and contrast adjustments.

It’s a very common thing to find street performers and carnivals in every big city in Germany if you happen to be in the market place during the weekend.
This is, for photographers, a great opportunity to capture spontaneous emotions of people, take advantage of the free show and the clothing.
Please comment about the feelings that these photographs have on you. Do you feel the music? Do you hear the drums? If you do, then it means that the shot is a succesfull one: your eye went from the happy faces of the players to their instruments and back, without any other distractions from the background.
Every weekend I took the train with my friends and we went visiting a near town.
First week we went to Hannover. Here I was amazed about the differences between new and old architecture. The colorful old town-hall next to a full glass building.
Here are some photos from both new and old Hannover. More photos later.
Hello dear readers.
My new Job brought me for more than a month in Germany. Here I used every free hour to take pictures that would feed my memories later, but I also took pictures that I want you to see and enjoy the places I visited.
First of all, I spent my nights at Hotel Kronprinz in Bad Salzdetfurt (it’s a small village near Hannover, in Niedersachsen).
Here are some pictures of this friendly village.

I’m really sorry I hadn’t posted about some time but I’m working hard on my online course about digital photography.
I hope I will be able to lunch it in a month or so. Please stay tuned. I would also appreciate your feedback. Please tell me what you wish to find out from a course like this? What should I include?
It’s been more than a year since I launched the digital photography course, and now, based on your feed-backs, I am now able to extend the course from 3 months to 4 months and to add more bonuses.
The extended version is planned for release by the end of the year 2011. I will think also of a pack for those who already completed the old version and would like to have the extra information as well.
Therefore, stay tuned for the updates!
Every photographer, from amateur to professional, will take pictures of Christmas Decorations because these are beautiful, eye catching, and most of all, memorable.
From the view of the entire Christmas tree, to close-ups on simple and sophisticated decorations, it’s all sparkle and lovely. For the shots, remember to have a tripod and a remote controller.
For the first Christmas tree picture, my friend Tudor used flash (with -2 exposure) in rear mode, in low light. Picture was taken in “Program” mode.
The second Christmas tree picture has +3 exposure, no flash, and low light environment. Longer exposure time in this case: 20 sec.. Picture was taken in “Shutter Mode”.
The white balance in case of such photographs is better set to “auto” since the colors from the lights differ from the environmental light and other lights coming from nearby. After all, the multitude of colorful lights is what makes Christmas beautiful.
Now let’s see the close-ups: the most simple setting scheme is: “Program” Mode, rear flash, adjusted exposure (differs from scene to scene), tripod and remote control or 2 seconds shutter delay. For brighter scenes you can put the flash off and increase ISO.
On most of the photos, on post-processing, I added a warm filter to make the tree have a yellowish green, and to make the red color stronger.
