For a landscape photographer, a wide or super-wide lens is essential.

Silhouette Photography

Friday, September 4th, 2009

While a flash is usually an important part of taking a picture and capturing the full extent of your subject, more light on the subject isn’t always desired.

The viewer is left to imagine the silhouetted subject and… Continue reading
