2019 in the Rearview – ptanphoto – Underwater Photography Article

[ad_1] 2019 in the Rearview – ptanphoto Writing a look back on the past year hadn’t crossed my mind this time, not to mention my complete overlooking of the fact that another decade had just flashed by.

Photographically speaking (since this is technically a photo blog), 2019 was a year I spent capturing my experiences, vs. actively seeking out sceneries to photograph.…

First (Street) among equals? » Gale Photography – Fine Art Photography Article

[ad_1] First (Street) among equals? » Gale Photography Last weekend I was up in Manchester for a social event.  I stayed in the First Street district, which is all shiny new office and entertainment buildings.  There’s a lot of glass, and a lot of rectangles.  I popped out one morning with my Lumix TZ-100 compact camera to try and capture the feel of the area. Some of the architecture is a bit disturbing, such as this, the INNSIDE hotel.  It’s…

Into the Wild With the Reindeer of Norway and Sami Culture – Photography Article

Despite the lack of natural light — and artificial light for that matter, given our cabin was…

Simple Steps for Planning a Travel Photography Trip – Photography Article

[ad_1] For all us photographers, travel and photography are activities that typically go together. Perhaps there is the random photographer out there that refuses to bring their camera along on vacations, but I think most of us can relate to James Wheeler’s latest video.

With that in mind, knowing that we each will probably…
