‘Sleeping Giant’ is by ‘ram rugas’. The photographer says “The surrounding areas of Mayon prove that after the destructive wrath of the volcano, the land is enriched for the harvest of future crops.”
‘Tomato Soup’ by Shootn made us hungry for tomato soup and white bread the moment we saw it. It’s a great still life photograph, and it’s evident that the photographer has taken care to consider the layout of this image down to the small details. For us, the streak of sunshine falling over the bowl really adds an additional warmth and ‘friendliness’ to the feel of the photograph.
May has been an active month on our Facebook page. Along with discussions on photography, links to fascinating photography sites, blogs, and videos, people have been sharing the best of their photography with us. We thought that they were definitely worthwhile sharing, so we have put together a gallery of our favourite photographs that were shared to our Facebook wall.
Christmas Night by ‘polinabrz’ is a stunning outdoor portrait. The sharp focus contrasts with the soft bokeh of the twigs and branches draw your eye to the model’s eyes in the centre of the image.
Photographing star trails involves one of the trickiest photography techniques to master. If you want to give it a go, we have just the tutorial you need to get you started with your star trail photography! In the meantime, take a look at these incredible captures of star trails.
We like ‘Shine’ by ‘agatasmialy’. The colours of this image have been carefully considered by the photographer, the mint green giving a soft look to the overall image.
This beautiful image from ‘kban’ is of a Nuthatch. It was taken on a Nikon D90. The photographer waited in a hide to get this fantastic image. The wait was definitely worth the end result.
‘Summer Delight’ by Maz features a cabbage white butterfly resting on a Scabiosa flower. The shallow depth of field creates a nice bokeh.
‘Untitled’ by ‘diemieux’ is a great example of good portrait photography. It’s composition and lighting ensure that the model stands out against the background of the woods.
‘Playing with Fish’ by anne73 is our photo of the day. It is often difficult to get close enough to photograph kingfishers without scaring them away, and that is if you are lucky enough to see one. This photographer was exceptionally lucky to be able to capture a shot of this kingfisher with its catch.
