Today, photography is like a mold. It grows so fast. In one side, the demand for visual need is increasing along with the media development to view images for example in social media. At the other side, there are too many photographers around. The number of photo imaging graduates in Sydney is around 50 people per 3 months. If it is counted for a year, then there will be 200 students graduated from one photography institution. Just imagine if these 200 people are seriously taking photography as their source of making a living, every year the competition will be getting fiercer.
Let’s try to identify this complicated issue where people who hold DSLR cameras can be called as photographers. We need to use 2 perspectives on this: Read the rest of this entry » .
The following questions are the most common ones asked by amateur photographers which professional photographers find ridiculous. Why? It is because photography is a piece of art and not a math calculation where one plus one results two.

Do not blindly rely on a memory card based on its brand. I’ve once bought a highly recommended memory cards, and it broke two years after. The brands usually brag on its long life, but it’s better to focus on brands with convenient after-sale service from the memory card’s seller or producer because memory cards […]
Want a photograph with this unique bokeh? It’s easy and cheap to do, without any complicated editing in Photoshop, without any expensive filters, and without the need of a high-and camera. The only tools you need are a wide-aperture lense ( I used the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 Ais) and your finger. Yep, your fingers 🙂
The following are important factors in assessing the optical quality of a lens: -A good lens has the same sharpness in the center as it does at the edges (bad-quality lenses have a corner softness). -Good lenses can also capture with sharpness at any focal length and at any aperture setting (except when it exceed […]
1. The word “photography” was first mentioned by an eminent mathematic and astronomic expert, Sir John Frederick William Herschel in 1839. 2. Leica is identical to Germany but it is actually made in Canada and Portugal as well. 3. Single lens reflex camera (SLR) was first discovered in 1861 by Thomas Sutton – and it […]

Many beginner photographers think that a good photo can only be obtained by using a sharp lens that produces sharpness right to the edge of the frame. There’s truth in that, but it’s not always so. A sharp image without a sharp message doesn’t amount to much of a photograph. What would make a better […]
