Looks like you’ve nailed the shutter speed here. great action shot and the focus looks good to me

Yes I agree with the above comments, it’s definitely dynamic and sharp with all the individual water droplets visible.

Wow ! That’s a great capture of action and motion. You captured so much detail too. Awesome.

Another smashing abstract Barbara. How do you do it!?

“Wow. That is a fantastic picture. I see quite a few different stories here. Almost Disney-like. Well done.”

Exquisite for its mood setting story. The early morning mist, the inquisitive dog focused on both human companion and something off in the distance…relaxed and alert. It makes me feel like a quiet distant observer wanting to sit and relax and watch the scene unfold.

WOW! Absolutely love this! Not much else to say what hasn’t been said apart from #photoenvy. Well done

This is stunning Deborah. I love the crop, the colour and the beautifully rendered raindrops.

Deborah this is fantastic, I echo everything that Jean has said. The clarity of the water drops is perfect. Can’t rate this highly enough. It would be my choice for a #POTD if we did one on a monday! 🙂

Beautiful work! Love that the flower takes up almost the whole frame and the purple is stunning on the black background. Agree with Stephen that it would be a great POTD.

This is a great capture Roy. Great clarity and composition.

This is a fabulous action shot Roy! The birds are both so crisp and detailed. The green finch seems so nonplussed by the goldfinch seemingly flying straight for the sunflower chip he is eating! This is the kind of shot I hope to capture and would die for–well not literally die…but just saying I would really feel ecstatic about it.

Wow, amazing capture, its so sharp and clear. Perfect moment!

Is this a pet fox?amazing shot!Nice side lighting.

Oh Jerry this is magnificent, the orange and blues complement nicely. How patient did you have to be to get this shot?!

Thanks for sharing your process in achieving this stupendous image of the red fox as it really emphasizes the need for patience in doing wildlife photography. The colors are brilliant and how wonderful you got the fox to crest the mound of snow with its curious face still on and in the power position of looking down on you. I would love to be able to capture one such as this. A fantastic effort well paid off.

 

Congratulations to everyone who featured in the Top 10 this month. Thank you to all of our students who have uploaded images this past month and for all of those who have taken the time to comment and rate their fellow students work.

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.
