  • Flowers make for some really beautiful photo subjects. The problem is, we’ve all noticed that, and we all have tons of flower photos. Here are 13 alternative flower photography tips to make your flower photos stand out.
  • If my links aren’t enough for you, check out DPS’s 15 Cool Digital Photography Links from Around the Web.
  • So, I already mentioned that flowers make great photo subjects, but did you ever think bathrooms would? Check out these impressive bathroom pictures.
  • If you’re one of those people that’s obsessed with getting the “right” white balance for every photo, I suggest you read this point of view.
  • Here’s a great little tutorial about how to photograph smoke – complete with photos of the entire set-up!

    Thank you so much for this post. I use gimp and have never found so much useful info. I love the entire site.

    I just realized this comment went to the wrong entry. I was refering to the Gimp FX plugin entry.

    Do you shoot in RAW?

  • I do shoot in RAW. Last year I shot in just high quality jpg, then switched to RAW + jpg at the beginning of this year. I think it was around July that I realized I was hardly ever using those jpg shots, so I switched to just RAW. I don't necessarily think that one is better than the other. I think what works best for you and your workflow is what's better for you.
