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

Meerkats are small burrowing animals, living in large underground networks with multiple entrances which they leave only during the day. They are very social, living in colonies averaging 20-30 members. Animals in the same group regularly groom each other to strengthen social bonds. The alpha pair often scent-mark subordinates of the group to express their authority, and this is usually followed by the subordinates grooming the alphas and licking their faces. This behavior is also usually… Continue

These before and after shot have been circulating all over the web lately and have sparked up conversation about "how much photoshop work is too much, in the fashion and glamour industry?" I believe this is a magazine from somewhere is Russia.

ON night photography, several people wrote....but i feel, still the people are not satisfied. because they cannot get those results, which a pro or a over-enthusiast dare.
THERE is something in NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY that captivates all.....there is a mystical feel that a photographer gets when shooting after dark...The shadows and the selective lighting give ur creativity the outlet it was seeking.....However, what u see with ur eyes is seldom satisfactory to the photographer in you.....u will… Continue

Hello, I'm a freelance photographer in Los Angeles working as a paparazzi. I figured I would join this site, but I'm wondering just how many flames might come my way like "You give us photographers a bad name" or the classic "Get a real job" and what not.
I'm probably one of the most honorable, respectful, of the paparazzi there is. I'll ask celebrities if I can take their picture and let them pick the ones they'd rather have deleted. I often stand waiting for hours as celebrities… Continue

Cuando la tomé por primera vez
sentí un ligero escalofrío que recorrió mi brazo entero,
los cabellos se me erizaron,
la temperatura de mi cuerpo aumentó de golpe.
mis ojos se clavaron en ella por un instante,
dejé errar la mirada
por todo su hermoso cuerpo
su peso era ligero.
la estructura, convencional
aunque algo engañosa.
Todo era perfecto.
Una sorpresa tras otra.
fue tocar ese maravilloso botón,
pude ver… Continue

This is a rare night photo of the Business Bay Executive Towers being built right now in Dubai. Construction is going on around the clock and Dubai is using at least 24% of all the cranes in the world right now. With the economy the way it is, I can't believe that there is enough money there to support all that construction. The shining green of the lights makes for a really spectacular shot, it almost looks unreal. This photo was taken by Mohamed Somji.…

Malawi has some of the largest concentrations of Hippo in Africa so it was not hard to stumble across these magnificent beasts ,although they can travel up to 15 miles in the dry season looking for food they are easy to locate during the day as they spend most of that in the water and can be found easily because of their roars. From a photographic point of view they pose their own kind of problems the biggest being is that they do they spend most of… Continue
