Nice shot! I agree with the other two about using thirds. Some Canon cameras (and smartphones) allow you to make the third lines show up as an overlay on your LCD screen or viewfinder (digital viewfinders), but I’m not sure about Nikon. Having the lines gives a great visual as well as a reminder when framing... Read More »

Thank you for your comments! Somehow I always seem to forget about that third thing. No I did not crop it! The picture you see completely unedited! I will definitely be more careful with the shutter speed when it is windy! Read More »

Very nice, @peanut! I like the simplicity in the image. Personally, I don’t mind the fact the the feeder is crooked, it brings some action to the shot! I believe I agree with @esther though, it may have been better composed on a third. Looks like there might be a little motion blur going on there as well? Just... Read More »

Question: Which Tamron lens for Nikon camera?

Hello Everyone! Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving! I’m a portrait photographer and would like to buy a zoom lens somewhere in the 24-70mm range (although that particular lens is just a bit too expensive for me right now 😁). I think it would help to complete my repertoire, as I already own a 50mm prime and... Read More »

Wow, @peanut, I really like this picture! Awesome job! 😊 First thing I noticed was it tells a story. I love photos that tell about the life of a animal! More that just the animal! My thoughts on composition are that the photo should be straightened. It looks like you are looking straight on. If you straighten the... Read More »

I took this one in the sun, through a window, at our local nature center! I used my D5000 Nikon. ISO-560 F/9 No flash! I know the feeder is not straight! It was windy! Read More »

That’s a beautiful picture, @creative-click-photography. Typical Aussie sunset with cloudless skies (unless it’s winter). I love taking photos of sunsets, and yours reminds me of the sunsets at Fremantle Beach here in Western... Read More »

Reply To: How do you create an online photo portfolio?

@esther Now that’s testing the old memory. 😂 I had a quick look back in my emails. I can’t tell exactly, but I think it may have been a couple of days. I’ve noticed that they sometimes take a little while longer accepting pics etc these days, probably because they have more contributors or something. I guess it’s... Read More »

Reply To: How do you create an online photo portfolio?

I currently use Zenfolio but there are various reasons why I’d like to move on to something else. I know Lightroom comes with some mobile options but there are limitations there also for a full fledged portfolio. So, at this point I don’t know, but I think I’ll make it the theme of the next Premium... Read More »

Reply To: FEATURED: Grand Piano

Ok @elianafranzenburg, we’ve got an answer from the Ziesemers! “I don’t think that we would choose a black and white photo for the front cover of the book. Music on the piano might work. I think that if we did that it should be a hymnal and also it would be better not to be able to see what parti piece or... Read More »
