The Greatest Photographer

For some people, these names may sound unfamiliar. However, when you see their works or the images they created, you may say that you know them. For instance, when you see the “bliss” image with the carpet of lush green grapevine’s farm with a clear blue sky, you must know that it is the default window XP wallpaper, yet some people may have no idea at all about who was the creator. Behind those phenomenal photos, there must be talented photographers. And who are those greatest photographers? Here are some of them: Read the rest of this entry »

Rusidah an Armless Photographer

In Photography, Breaking the Rules is the New Rule!

High ISO Shoot

High ISO Shoot

Back then, when the first time I knew and learnt photography like most of you did, you might diligently look for tips and tricks related to it about things to do and things not to do when you shoot (rules of photography). The most basic and the most common rule of photography which is constantly taught includes “rule of the third” where the object of photo should be placed on one thirds of the photo frame, or the rule where a photographer is suggested to use low ISO to get sharp and noise-free result. However, at one point, I realize that in order to create a unique photo, I have to get out from those rules that I’ve learnt. Yes, break the rules!

So, what are the rules we can break to get unique images? Read the rest of this entry »

Photography is not Fun, IF..

Posted by oneslidephotogaraphy On January - 15 - 2017

Photography is not fun



Photography is supposed to be fun, exciting, free, and a media form of creative expression for the photographer. But if you’re not getting any of that from photography, maybe the reason can be found among the following:

1. Buying a camera, lens, and other accessories that you don’t really need.
Every day, we’re bombarded by advertising, news, and advice from friends about the newest products. Anything new usually excites us. My advice, don’t be too hasty to buy a new product. Do some research about its uses and specifications and determine whether or not it’s for you and if it’s what you really need. Let your buying impulse sit for a few months and then reconsider once it doesn’t dictate your decision making.
Avoid buying equipment you don’t really need. For instance, why would you need to buy a 600 mm lens if you rarely photograph outdoor? Let alone condoning yourself to pay the stuff by taking out a loan. It’ll only add unnecessary burden to you along the way with endless loan payments.

Nikon lenses smashed

Nikon lenses smashed

So my previous article talks about all the things that can have a damaging effect to your camera. Among others, these are dust, seawater, and humid air. But besides all of that, do you know what entity can cause a much greater, no-mercy damage to camera? That wrathful entity would be an angry girlfriend.

This Hong Kong-based photographer has met this most unfortunate of fates. One day, he had a huge fight with his girlfriend (though the reason wasn’t clearly explained). In the heat of the fight, the angry girlfriend brutally destroyed his camera’s lenses. You would think that throwing them would be horrible enough, but this girlfriend went to the next level by using a screwdriver to bash into the front and back end of the lens glass. She really knew what she was doing and knows where to hit for that fatal blow. The lenses were then irreparable and useless. Read the rest of this entry »
