Lovely shot and I really love the editing. Like James said the contrasty b&w and the blues, really work well together. Great job Nicki 😀

Great winter landscape shot, Nicki. Love the dramatic sky against the snow. You can really feel the cold.

This is wonderful Nicki. The contrast between that wonderful sky and the snowy landscape is beautiful.

Wow this is amazing. The clarity is so on point. Fantastic shot of a fabulous bird. 🙂

Wow! Congrats Roz! Amazing clarity and detail! Very nicely composed with the swan looking into the picture. Love it!

Merry Christmas Rebecca and Maizie and to your Mum too this is lovely, I love the way she is holding her paws she looks so relaxed

 

6. Noreen Thorn

This is very beautiful and atmospheric Noreen. I never seem to find interesting gems at the end of my pathways!

I love avenues of trees. This one makes me shiver just looking at it. As Hilary says, beautiful and atmospheric.

Brilliant composition Noreen, the tudor style architecture helps the house stand out but also complement the thick black shapes of the tree trunks too 🙂

Fabulous shot, the sharpness is epic. Love the composition showing the old and new and the colours really compliment the shot. Brilliant! Well done Peter 😀.

What a great shot. Everything that Rachel has said and also quite envious being by the coast… Like the bit of reflection in the water and the whole composition.

Fab photo, Peter. I particularly like the texture in the old breakwater and the tones of the image.

This looks scrumptious Bev. Not sure how you got the (marshmallows?) floating in the air but very effective.

Very creative, Bev, love the flying marshmallows and the red glow from the candles. Very cosy!!

Well isn’t this just lovely! You’ve really hit that festive feeling perfectly Bev! Good luck in the competition and voting! 🙂

I really like this Jean – very simple but eye catching. Sometimes you need simplicity to allow the photo to speak to you. You have that here. Well done 🙂

I agree with Michelle! The simplicity here really works, coupled with the beautiful colour of the background. You won’t be seeing Christmas food pictures from me because if I buy or make it, I’ll have to eat it! LOL!

The orange background is great. Makes the food feel yummy and inviting, just the kind of look that professionals look for in advertising 🙂 well done!

This is beautiful, Matthew! I love the composition, with the lone tree and the gradient color behind it.

Vivid sunset (or sunrise) colours here. Very atmospheric with the lone tree.

Superb work Matthew wonderful image, I can see exactly why you got nominated for the POTY shortlist this year!

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.
