Brilliant! Super creative

Wow, what a fantastic image Nicki! An explosion of eights, which also look like infinity symbols. Maybe they’re multiplying like a virus…or maybe I’m reading too much into this? As Kerry already said, it’s super creative and really well executed too.

Remarkably imaginative, Nikki! I love the fact the eights are exploding from the eight on the watch face – brilliant.

Perfect blend of form and meaning John. Great idea.

Well done John! Love this 🙂

How long did it take you to edit this in John? It is a wonderful idea, very well spaced and you’ve used a beautiful shot to begin with for the composition. I ‘think’ that this is such an important word for photographers. All we do is think – does this work, does this look good, whats the best angle, whats the best setting. Very apt for an artist 🙂

I just love shots like this Jean. What a find! The colours, the doors, the bike and a happy guitarist on what looks like a sunny day! Just perfect!

There is whole story in just one shot. Beautiful picture.

Saw this on the FB page. Love it! The whole composition works so well. And the colors really stand out. The motorcycle is perfect here. Love the guitarist, really adds personality. And good for you to go get that shot you wanted! Bravo! Perhaps the guitarist would like a copy for his shop?

This is amazing Montse. The capture of the action, the fanning of the bird’s wings, the light in the eye, the water, the DoF – wonderful.

Awesome action shot, Montse. Everything comes together here from the DoF and stunning colours to the splashes and water droplets and blur of the wings in flight. Nice detail too on the kingfisher’s body and catch light in his eye.

Great set, Montse. I think this is my favourite. You caught the action perfectly, the wings are nicely blurred to show motion and the bird’s face is focused. Love the stop action on the water and the colour is great. Nice work!

I find this shot very affecting Carol. The buffalo and the little bird looks as though it could be comforting him.

Great photo and composition love the colours in the bird which should be making him cross eyed!

Wow I love this shot, Carol. Great contrast between the b&w buffalo and the vivid colours of the bird. Awesome capture.

Wow what a shot. Love the colours and reflections.

Really love this shot. The colors and tones are rich and love the rippled reflection. Well done!!

What a special shot Stephen, the colours are spectacular. I’ve been to Amsterdam alot and this brings back fantastic memories 🙂

Not sure of the High Key is intentional or just part of the environment but looks really well here. Really nice.

Fantastic photo! The high key look works very well with these birds and really sets off the eye. I like photos that show wildlife doing their thing. You’ve captured a very interesting aspect of their behaviour. Love this shot!

Gannets are such beautiful, captivating birds that clearly express their affections with their partner and chicks. –quite different with the bickering of neighbours–The intertwine with the perfect focus of the main Ss eye is so compelling!

Wow, a dramatic shot!! Love the leading lines and the contrast between the dark stormy sky and the golden field.

I love the simplicity and the drama of this shot Matthew. The tracks through the corn leading into the far distance give a sense of an endless expanse of the landscape stretching to infinity, and it makes those storm clouds look even vaster and more threatening as a result.

Fab shot, the leading lines take you through the image and the contrast between the gold of the field and the stormy sky makes it all the more dramatic.

One fabulous image Per-Axel; this is wildlife photography at its best! The DOF is perfect and your focus is spot on. Many congratulations 🙂

Great capture Per-Axel. Love the DoF, framing and clarity, detail and textures in the fur and eyes.

Yet another great Hare shot, he looks as though he is just posing for you, love everything about this image.

What an inspiring scene! I can almost feel myself being rowed through the cave-like atmosphere with the sun breaking the cool darkness as it peeps through the opening in the cave. Great colours and composition. I think I see masks on people’s faces too–wow!

I agree entirely with the comments above Elena I really like this feeling that I am there.

“Well done on getting #POTD – stunning colours and lighting

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.
