Environmental photography
The title is simple, but the article is complex and reached deep into my heart. The images used as examples left me with a strong taste about the world we live in. It’s always great to read articles from Magnum Photo.

Pregnancy Photography Tips
This is another subject that will never fail to reach the human hearts. Yet, in this article I saw some photographs that are totally unique, such as a painted pregnant woman. Also, there is video at the very beginning of the article.

Smoke Photography and Smoke Art
This article is probably the HIT of the month. Smashing Magazine always comes will cool articles debating actual themes. So it is the case now too. The examples are unique, professional and very creative. Yet, I do not understand what water pictures have to do with smoke.
