Australia's largest city hosted its annual family fireworks display at 9pm, three hours before the official celebrations took place.
Meanwhile several Asian cities including Hong Kong, Kolkata, Manila and Singapore were preparing to welcome in the New Year in style as the clocks tick down to midnight.
Celebrations took place in Seoul, while millions of Japanese took to the streets of Tokyo in a colourful New Year… Continue

12/31/2008, 1:37 a.m......A man sits hunkered into a half kneeling, half crouching position on the floor....
The arduous task of cutting and tearing seemed to go on for hours without end. The smooth back of the razor sharp blade pressing unforgivingly into the calloused flesh of his finger had spawned the arrival of several squishy red blisters.
Wondering if suffering through the means was really worth the end result, he reached over and unwound the cord. Stretching… Continue

Happy New Year everybody! I'm very ecstatic about the fact that with the new year, I was able to find a great Photographer's site. Throughout the year I've searched and searched for one, but with my hectic schedule at work, I just couldn't find the free time to do so. The holidays gave me an opportunity to google and find the site I actually felt at home with.
Here's to hoping that everybody gets to see the beauty of the world we live in this 2009! Cheers!

A life and death game of hide and seek...
There are few things more enjoyable on a freezing day than a vigorous game of tag followed by a hearty meal.
Unless you're supposed to be the main course, that is.
These pictures show how close one man came to being a polar bear's dinner.
Mmmm, looks like dinner time: The bear stands on its haunches and peers over the car roof at his prey, a surveyor returning to his vehicle in the Alaskan town of… Continue

I just posted this on my website. For those who are looking into becoming a freelance photography
The Truth About Freelance Photography
The facts are that photography leads the way when it comes to the number of professionals in the field who work as freelancers. Over half of all photographers freelance and the demand for qualified and experienced professionals are expected to grow in the future. But do you have what it takes to make it?

DCAMs have given u the best facility of minimal loss in image quality......and that is shooting in RAW......i do know that still many people prefer to shoot in JPEG, rather then reprocessing the image from RAW and then posting to site converting into JPEG format........However, when u shoot an image, the captured data is processed by the camera and then save as an image file. There is a certain amount of data that is lost during processing. ...If u choose to use the RAW format, the original RAW… Continue

2008 has been an eventful year to say the least - it is difficult to sum up the thousands of stories in just a handful of photographs. That said, I will try to do what I've done with other photo narratives here, and tell a story of 2008 in photographs. It's not the story of 2008, it's certainly not all stories, but as a collection it does show a good portion of what life has been like over the past 12 months. This is a multi-entry story, Photographs over days.…

I wish I didn't have a fear of heights. Then maybe I could enjoy something like this.

I took several shots today in fairly bad lighting conditions. I wanted to avoid using the flash because I don't like the way the pic looks with the flash. Anyways, the pictures came out extremely grainy. The photo specs are Shutter: 1/8, Aperture 4.0 and ISO 400. Can someone tell me what went wrong here? I shot these pics without a tripod so is it that the shutter speed was too slow to do it by hand? If this is the case what about the pics that came our clear but still pixelated with a shutter… Continue

Good article from Time,
The days of darkrooms and negatives are mostly behind us, according to Ritchin's exploration of how digital technologies are changing the landscape of news photography. Even if film photography lives on in the fine art world, its limitations make it significantly less interesting than the possibilities offered by digital technology. Ritchin is no digital virgin. The pioneering director of the Web site PixelPress, he was teaching the New York… Continue

This photo is so amazing, it almost looks fake! Astronaut Shane Kimbrough, STS-126 mission specialist, participates in the mission's second scheduled session of extravehicular activity (EVA) as construction and maintenance continue on the International Space Station. During the six-hour, 45-minute spacewalk, Kimbrough and astronaut Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper (out of frame), mission specialist, continued the process of removing debris and… Continue

This photo was taken by Chris Fleharty who is an amateur storm chaser from Sterling, US. I am always amazed at photographers who go after extreme conditions, I'm sure it would be very exciting but also very scary.

I saw this photo on a social media site, I believe it was taken by a photographer named Kirsten. I thought this was a great street photo. It put me at a loss for words.
One of the comments under it was, "This man is my son. His name is Noel Mathew Cowley. He is 29 & has been missing for almost 2 years now. We want him to know we love him & everyone is concerned about him & all want him home. Please email me privately if you know his… Continue
