Secrets of Digital Bird Photography Many people new to photography don’t realize that not all lenses can “zoom”. In fact, the lenses I use most often for bird photography don’t “zoom” at all: they have a fixed focal length which provides only a fixed amount of magnification. They’re what photographers call prime lenses. A zoom lens, on the other hand, provides a range of magnifications. The act of “zooming in” is a matter of increasing the magnification (which means increasing the focal length). The availability of both zoom lenses and prime lenses means that you have yet another decision to make when shopping for a birding lens: whether to buy a zoom lens or a prime lens.

Yet somehow, for all the infinite variety that photography should offer us, we see the same things over and over. The same photos, the same tricks, the same clichéd, hackneyed shots.

Pioneer Woman Photography Photography is all about exposure, or the light that is allowed to be let in when a photo is taken. Learning how to adjust exposure to get the effect you’re looking for is one of the things all photographers have to eventually learn, and one of the easiest examples of this is taking a photo of a silhouette against a sunrise or sunset. In the photo above, I exposed for the sky. “Exposing for the sky” means I told my camera that I wanted to capture all the beauty and color variations of the sky and not to worry about letting enough light in to see my baby.

The 36 best tools for data visualization It's often said that data is the new world currency, and the web is the exchange bureau through which it's traded. As consumers, we're positively swimming in data; it's everywhere from labels on food packaging design to World Health Organisation reports. As a result, for the designer it's becoming increasingly difficult to present data in a way that stands out from the mass of competing data streams. Immersion Course: Essay and Photographs by William Neill Black Oak Leaves, El Capitan Meadow, Yosemite National Park, California 1983 Camera: Wista 45 Lens: Rodenstock Sironar-N 210mm f/5.6 One important goal for landscape photographers, or any photographer, is to develop a body of images that shows both depth and creativity. Making images that are innovative is hard enough, but it is very difficult to sustain it. Especially if you aspire to market your images, then showing a sustained level of excellence in your portfolio will draw attention to your work. There is so much generic imagery and so much competition that uniqueness is at a premium.
