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 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

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

YES, u want to be a pro, and wish to run a studio.....here are few tips for ANGULAR & OVAL FACE.
.....IF the sitter has an angular face with high cheekbones, the main light is usually placed above the camera lens axis. This is symmetrical lighting with a short butterfly-shaped shadow under the nose. The advantage with this type of lighting is that the sitter can turn whichever way, and yet the lighting on the face wud be quite enough....For fill-in, a thermocol piece of 24''x24'' wud… Continue

Já é de tarde logo mais chega a noite, um silencio assustador, eu numa caçada estou na mata fechada cheia de perigos, armadilhas e feras selvagens, tigres, onças, leões, crocodilos, cobras gigantescas e todo tipo de vida feroz numa selva, armado apenas com arco e seis flechas pra essa jornada, estou tranqüilo sei que não tem tribos selvagens nessa área, mas devo ficar atento aos perigos, ando em silencio e no silencio ouço um ruído leve, fico mais atento pode ser um… Continue

This photo was taken by Jason Husband who said: "Sometimes it pays to be lucky. Granted, though I did not get the whole lightning strike in this shot, I still think it might be my favorite lightning shot I have taken of all time. This is straight out of the camera, no cropping, no light adjustments, nothing. If I had a wide angle lens, this would have been spectacular. Maineville, Ohio 6-15-08.

EVEN the simplest object takes on new fascination in MACRO mode.....just look for the close-up or macro mode icon, which is usually a flower symbol, turn it on, and get as close to an object as your camera will allow....Hold the shutter button halfway down to allow the camera to focus. When the confirmation light gives u the go ahead,press the shutter down the rest of the way...Keep in mind that now u have a very shallow DOF, so focus on the part of the subject, that is more important to… Continue
