dream of love by PatrickWally
“Every face, every shop, bedroom window, public-house,

It is the same with books. What do we seek through millions of pages?”

How I achieve MacroMacro Photography
I usually get asked how I take my pictures, well the answer is easy, it's just a matter of trying and practicing a lot. With this article I'll try to explain everything to do with how I achieve my photography, from the equipment to my settings and also the post-processing techniques that I have.
When I started a bit more seriously with Macro Photography I had my first DSLR a Nikon D3000 and the macro lens I got as a Christmas gift (nice present, don't you think?). I didn't know what I was doing when I started shooting with it but after some time and a lot of practice and pictures I started getting some decent shots. Now I have a Nikon D600 which is a Full Frame camera, maybe not the best option for Macro Photography as a bigger sensor will produce images with a shallow depth of field than an APSC sensor camera, but the quality it gives me compensates that in my opinion.
Later I bought a kit of extension tubes from

Understanding aperture and how to control it is important!
Simply put, aperture is the opening in a lens that lets light through. You can control how open (wide) or small (narrow) this hole. The quickest way to adjust aperture manually is to use manual or aperture priority mode.
Aperture is measured in f/ (f stop numbers).
Smaller apertures are measured in larger numerical values while larger apertures are measured in smaller numerical values.
This means f/1.8 is a very large opening (lets in lots of light)
And f/22 is a very small opening (lets in a small amount of light)
To think about this intuitively, just think of it in terms of fractions. 1/8 is smaller than 1/2, but 8 is a larger number than 2.
Effects of a large aperture
Such as f/1.8
Lots of light means you can use a faster shutter speed without a higher ISO, which

COLOR STREET PHOTOGRAPHY  - Joel Sternfeld
«With a photograph, you are left with the same modes of interpretation as you are with a book.
You ask: 'What do we know about the author and their background? What do I know about the subject?'»
Joel Sternfeld (born June 30, 1944) is a fine-art color photographer noted for his large-format documentary pictures of the United States. He mastered color photography as an art form in the early ’70s when color was still associated with advertising, helping establish color photography as a respected artistic medium.
I guess that a lot of Joel Sternfeld’s work can to fall into the category of “street photography”, also his“urban landscapes”, cause I don't guess that if a photograph doesn’t have a person on it, this isn’t “street photography.” ...

Biryani rice.Those of you who hate food, I don't know why you would even click on a journal titled like this, but if you did... now's the time to get out. Those of you who are looking for a way to cook rice and want to experiment, read on for the recipe. (Or if you're plain terrified by the prospect of cooking rice but wish you could do it.)
Biryani is a traditional dish from the Indian subcontinent, and recipes differ depending on what region you're in... but basically it is a dish where, during the preparation, you layer your food so: meat/chicken layer at the bottom (marinated in yoghurt and spices), and then on top are layers of rice, fried onion and fried potato. These are all slow cooked together. In some places this dish is oven baked. In Mauritius, of course, we have our own version, and it's a dish that's immensely popular at wedding receptions. It's a Mauritian joke (that's probably true) that wedding biryani is greatly responsible for our incidence of hypertension and ischaemic heart dis
Photography Exposed: Instant FilmPhotography exposed is a brand new series of articles brought to you by your General Photography Community Volunteers!

This gallery is not for images which have had Polaroid-style filters or frames added during digital processing."
