Stitching multiple images together to create panoramas is great, but in a lot of cases your final image will have empty space and some parts missing. That's simply the result of stitching images together. You can always crop your image to get rid of that empty space, but there is a tool in Adobe Lightroom…

If you are looking to improve your photography, then look no further than your foregrounds – quite literally! The foreground is often what separates flat, snapshot images from spectacular, exceptional photos. Getting the foreground right can help to transform your images into a beautiful works of art. Take, for example, those photos that you find…

I think most of us in creative fields can suffer from a lack of confidence in our own abilities. As a photographer and writer, everything I put out there is something I've 'created' and, even as a seasoned pro, it can be hard to have faith in my work! So, how can we be more…

The graduated filter in Lightroom is an outstanding and powerful tool. Its value really can't be overstated when it comes to processing your images, especially landscape photos. In this tutorial we'll go through the process of editing an image using only the graduated filter tool in Adobe Lightroom. Let's get started, shall we? I hope…

Aerial photography has become easier because of drones, those small unmanned aerial vehicles that fly high above the sky to take photos. For many photographers, drones have become the perfect photoshoot buddy, allowing them to do the impossible, like taking aerial shots without having to actually fly in a chopper or any similar mode of…

In a world of vibrant color imagery, black and white photography stands out not for what it lacks, but rather for what it reveals in the absence of color. Monochrome photography puts the focus back on aesthetic elements that are central to a great photograph: texture, tone, contrast, lighting, and form. Rather than relying on…

Many newspapers and magazines often come out with features of influential and inspiring people. These features come with photos that show the person profiled in their natural surroundings.

This is for all those photographers who enjoy being awe-struck by what they’re shooting: Nothing captures mood in photography quite like overcast skies, but it’s not as straightforward as just snapping away when you see storm clouds on the horizon. While it can be tempting to just point and shoot when you’re under dramatic skies,…
