Top 10 Photo iPhotography
Here are just a few of the comments from iPhotography students;


“Haha what a moment to capture! Fantastic.”

“Fabulous capture. I wish that I had just a little bit of Peggy’s energy!”

“Nicely captured – well timed and the angle makes it look so high. Maybe would have left a little more space above him so he doesn’t seem like he is about to jump out of the picture but a top shot nonetheless!”

2. Anne Luther-Gandy

Top 10 Photos of the Month Number 2
Here are just a few of the comments from iPhotography students;


“Oh wow! I love the details and the expressions on their faces. Their movements could have been choreographed!”

“Stunning photo, so full of drama. I wonder what they are discussing.”

“Ditto all of the above. Great action shot. A couple of little dots as John mentions but I don’t mind them.”

3. Laura Harrison

Top 10 Photos of the Month Number 3
Here are just a few of the comments from iPhotography students;


“Laura this is stunning. I love the colours and the DoP is amazing. That macro lens is having a good workout:-)”

“very nice. the more i looked, and i had to keep looking, in a good way, i’d have to remove those 4-5 white dots right in the focus area.”

“What a beautiful shape and complementary colours Laura. The lighting and DoF look spot on to me.I can see why it is called a parrots beak plant. I don’t think I have ever seen one. Really well done. Great use of your macro lens.”


4. Steve Fleetwood

Top 10 Photos of the Month Number 4
Here are just a few of the comments from iPhotography students;


“Nice timing with the birds, and gorgeous lighting but I get the feeling there is just a little tilt to the picture and I haven’t decided whether I like the vignetted effect or whether it could be cropped tighter..”

“How pretty Steve. It takes a level of patience and stubbornness to persist in unpredictable lighting conditions to get amazing shots like this. Hats off to you!”

“Absolutely gorgeous! Love how the birds are perfectly placed in the beautiful lit area. I think John is right about the tilt with the water sloping right to left.”

“I love the creativity of this shot. Congratulations on a well deserved win.”

3 Ways to Use Natural Light

Sunlight can be discussed using a few different photography terms and approaches. There are normally 4 considerations photographers look at when using natural light in their photos - Direction, Colour, Intensity and Quality.

1. Direction

In which direction is the light falling? Is the direction of the light where you need it to be? While it’s very hard to change the direction of natural light unless you’re using reflectors you may have to move your subject into the path of the light to get the right finish.

There are 3 main directions that you can use natural light in a photo;

How to Be a Nature Photographer

Going from a beginner nature photographer to making money from your camera you need dedication. It requires time and a never-ending passion to get outdoors with your cameras and practise new techniques. Get outdoors early and return when the sun sets.

Get familiar with your local woodlands and read nature books to learn about wildlife, birding and foliage. This will help you understand what you are shooting and when is the best time of year to find these subjects.


The other challenge when shooting through glass is the tinting. Unfortunately, architects and designers didn’t think about us photographers when creating these skyscrapers.

Their windows are invariably tinted in some way to help with heating.

This means that some of your photos may have a green/grey tint to them.

It’s not the biggest issue as you can rebalance this tint in editing with the ‘tint’ slider for example.
