Tutorial: Product Photography Made Easy (Part 1)
There are many, many ways to photograph products for online shopping sites where typically the vendors want a pure white background. Over a number of years of doing this type of work for clients I have found a method that is super efficient and doesn’t involve Photoshop editing at all.

The Face in the Tree
A few weeks back I 'enjoyed' a field trip with the RPS to the Open University campus in Milton Keynes. I say enjoy because storm Dennis was raging at the time and I did get very wet and battered. It was nevertheless very interesting though not as productive as hoped.

17.5 Square Meters
Originally this was the dining room of our rented house when we moved here in 2008. At that time I had set up my office-come-studio in the most eastern part of the house, which with two big windows facing east and north is the sunniest room in the house. It was in that space that I began my unintended career as a website developer and photographer.

A short expedition with the village of Barabanovo.
In general, I have long wanted to look at such a rarity in our region as a wooden temple. And then Sergey Medvedev suggested going somewhere, breathing air, and even so, would scatter. And why not in Drum?

Nothing quite like the original...
I admit to finding some amusement in many Facebook photography groups reading peoples' posts on their quests to obtain lenses with "classic bokeh" (for want of a better description) for their digital cameras,  and manufacturers responding with increasingly more pricey and exotic lens designs...

And yet another modification...
I can't express adequately just how convenient and easy it is to modify some of the older film equipment in ways one couldn't even begin to contemplate with modern digital cameras. This sort of thing was standard practice when I started photography as a profession in the early 1970's.

Learning how to use tools again
Rediscovering the thing that went missing with digital as far as modifying and re-hashing the actual equipment is concerned, the old cameras really do enable a hands-on ability to shape things the way you want without having to have a degree in computer science or electronics.
