In this video, photographer Patrick Hall with Fstoppers shows you how you can take some amazing underwater photographs using a fish tank:

In some cases, using a fish tank works better than using a camera dome. For instance, it lets you include the water line in your frame along with the scene above and underwater. As a

When we think of street photography, we think of images with people out in public going about their daily lives. It’s the people in the images that play a pivotal role in the success of a street photo. But, what if we take the people out of street photography? Can it still be considered a street photo? While many may argue against it, photographer Faizal Westcott believes that it can still be called so:

“It can be easy to get caught in the mindset that you have to be photographing people in order to be doing street photography.”

Long exposure technique in photography is a great tool you can use to bring your creative vision to life. It allows you to create photographs that are generally not possible for us to see in the moment. Long exposure photography opens up doors to capture the unseen and also lets you use the world around you as a canvas and light as your paintbrush. Take for instance the following image taken by photographer Chase Dolan:

One sad thing about digital photography is that not many people bother to get their photos printed. Most of the images get lost in digital storage and rarely see the light of day. If you look at the past, things were different. With analog photography, the only way to see the images you took was to have them printed. The satisfaction of having a physical copy of your image was, and still is, something special. That’s something we’ve been missing out on these days. In this video, photographer Nigel Danson talks about the importance of having a physical copy of

Fog is tricky. There are extreme variations of opinions on fog depending on how and where you come across it. For instance, if a dense layer of fog covers up the beauty of your location, you might not like it. Visibility gets impacted, and many people even feel suffocated. However, if you get to observe fog rolling up on a distant landscape, you might wish that it would stay that way forever. The latter can be a truly magical sight to witness. Quite luckily, photographer Kyle Meshna captured beautiful waves of rolling fog at Mount Tamalpais, and it appears divine:

One very interesting and powerful aspect of photography is how it can evoke feelings. Images have the ability to make a person feel happy or sad. They can also convey empathy and give the viewers the taste of what the photo’s subject is going through. Take for instance the following image that photographer Ashraful Arefin took. The mood in the image, along with the elderly woman’s expression, can make anyone feel as relaxed as she is while enjoying the morning sun:

When we refer to a shot that’s taken in a decisive moment, we usually say that it’s a “once in a lifetime” type of shot. In life, there are certain events that truly occur once in a lifetime. Take for instance the appearance of comet Neowise. It has an orbital period of 6,766 years which means that we will not be around to witness its next appearance. Photographer Herry was lucky enough to have a magical sky with the Northern Lights and comet Neowise together in one frame. And the shot that he came up with is truly phenomenal:

The Ouse Valley Viaduct, also known as the Balcombe Viaduct, carries the London-Brighton Railway Line over the River Ouse in Sussex. Thanks to the ornate design, it looks aesthetically beautiful. This is why many describe the structure as probably the most elegant viaduct in Britain. It spans around 1,600 feet in a straight line, and has over 37 identical arches. The perfect symmetry is what makes this viaduct an engineering marvel. Just have a look at this image of the place taken by photographer Rory Browne:

Photography is a powerful tool. It allows you to freeze a particular moment in time. In other words, you have the ability to peek into a fragment of time that’s already passed. In this way, photography is something like a time machine that only lets you travel to the past. Old photos have the power to invoke strong feelings and that’s what makes them so special. Moments that didn’t seem significant then could turn out to be really special today. Photographer Thorsten Overgaard talks about why you should go back to your archives and dig up old photos, and why

When you’re out on the field taking photos, typically there are two ways you can work. You might either spend hours and take a handful of photos, or take lots and lots of photos within a very short period. And it’s important to note that each of these methods has its own set of advantages and challenges. While working hastily ensures that you have a greater pool to select from, working patiently lets you emphasize on high quality and precise work. Landscape photographer Nigel Danson prefers the latter category, and in this video he explains how the method brings him

Mornings are a great time to walk around taking photos. The same holds true not only for photographing landscapes but also for cityscapes. When the sun hangs low it provides a perfect opportunity to photograph the city in a phase that most people don’t often get to see. Besides, the soft light adds a touch of magic and makes the entire scene appear mystical if you catch it at the right moment. The following image by photographer Michael Sidofsky is an example:

LED lights have been on the photography scene for quite some time now. And videographers have been using constant LED lights as video lights for quite a while as well. Recently, companies have been developing LED flashes as an alternative to the traditional strobes that have dominated the market for years. To see if LED flashes are any good for the job, photographer Ike takes a Godox FV150 for a spin with some beauty photography:

One feature in this LED flash that you can’t find in the traditional strobes is how you can use it both as a constant light

Situated in the Skansinn area of the harbor of Vestmannaeyjabær, Iceland, is the Heimaey Stave church. It was gifted by Norway to Iceland in connection with the millennial anniversary of the conversion of Iceland to Christianity in the year 1000. This church is in fact a replica of the Haltdalen Stave Church in Norway. What makes the Heimaey Stave church so unique is the fact that it’s painted completely black, giving it a very gothic look. Photographer TJ Drysdale took the following image of the church at 2am and it looks awesomely idiosyncratic:

You can never be successful in any field if you leave everything up to luck. Similarly, if you want to succeed in photography, you need to be sure of what you’re doing. Every action that you take needs to make sense. And most of the outcomes, if not all, need to be predictable. Luck can only have a tiny window to influence your work. For this to happen, you need to have things under your control. And you can do so by planning ahead. Photographer Mark Wallace from Adorama talks about three important things that you need to line up
