    May Photo Challenge - Silhouette

    Depending on where you live, I understand that some people still have their movements restricted, so I think I have found a challenge that can be done pretty much everywhere: take a photo of whatever subject you desire just make it a silhouette. And in case you need a little help, here is a...

    February 2020 Photo Challenge: Light

    While the Northern hemisphere is waiting for the daylight to return, I thought it could be fun to make the challenge about light. Let light be the star of the photo in any way you interpret it; it could be a high-key photo, a sun ray, a lamp post, something really bright - it is all up to you...

    My latest Gold Dollar 66 modification

    A couple of weeks ago I suddenly got the urge to do another GD modification - it has been a long time since I did one. For this one, I wanted to keep it pretty simple, but also challenge myself (a little) on my preferences. I really like wood with a lot of grain and most often it can be found...

    Seeking backpack advise/recommendation

    After I have upgraded my camera and a couple of my lenses, my on-the-go camera bag has become too small (Lowepro Nova 2) and my transport bag (Hama Caddy F180) is too unhandy. Both of them are shoulder bags which isn't optimal when I am out and about for several hours, so I am looking for a...

    Meet-up of American cars

    The village I live in has an American Car Club and in cooperation with one or two other similar clubs they (apparently) hold an annual meet-up taking turns organising it in the respective towns - this year it was right on my doorstep and with free admittance there was no valid excuse not to...

    Panorama day

    My car had a bad injector and I had to have it replaced, so when I finally got the car back this afternoon, I thought it would be a good excuse to take it for a drive and test the engine - bringing my camera as well :wink: I am having fun making panoramas (maybe too much :1eye:), but if you...

    Trying to be a creatice copy-cat

    I recently saw a Youtube video with photographer Gavin Hoey, where he creates a picture of a wireless lighted light bulb. It looked like fun, so I thought I would try copying it. I don't have a dimmer (yet), so I had to fiddle a little more to recreate the picture. In order to keep the...

    Review: Eddie's Barber, Prague

    I have just had 5 wonderful days in Prague (my first visit to the city), and during my stay there, I decided to pamper myself with a traditional hot towel shave at Eddie’s Barber. It was a really nice experience, from entering the barber shop with its wooden plank floor and large industrial...

    Street photography - take two

    I have been running around in my village for two reasons; first and foremost to get some practice of street photography and secondly to try out my sling strap - which is great compared to the complimentary strap. This will definitely be used a lot in the future. There is room for improvement...

    October Challenge: Curves

    If there is something I find very pleasing for the eye, it is curves. Man made or natural doesn't really matter, so for this month's challenge I would like to see your take on curves. I have an example from a small church I came by the other day - a window with several curvy lines. And as...

    First dedicated "street photography" shoot

    I've seen lots of great street shots both here and on the web, but it is nothing I have given any thoughts of doing myself (there is people involved) - until this month's challenge forced me to :scared: So I decided the other day, as the forecast predicted good weather today, to give it a try...

    Advice for macro lens
