Most photographers have a love-hate relationship with vignetting.

It’s either they absolutely despise it because it affects the quality and look of their images, or they embrace it artistically as a way of drawing the eyes to the main subject within the photo.

But first, a quick introduction.

Vignetting occurs when there is a reduction in light in your images as you move away from the centre towards the edges of the photograph. It creates a sort of dark frame around the edges and focus point of your image and often gives the overall image a rather dated or classic look.

I was recently profiled by Asian Photography magazine and one of the questions I was asked had to do with my technical arsenal. You know, my Nikon cameras, Nikkor lenses, accessories, and such, that I currently own.

Occasionally, I’ll be sharing excerpts from my book DUE NORTH which is a collection of travel observations, reflections, and snapshots spanning two decades across colors, cultures, and continents. This particular story is about my precious little green book which opened up the world to me. Even though I travel on a different color these days, that little green book would forever be my initial key.

On my recent trip to Riga as part of the NordicTB Summit, here are some experiences I would recommend if you’ve got just a few hours in this port city on a ferry stopover and are looking for what to do in Riga.

My way of processing the world as a traveler has definitely evolved and matured since hiking the Inca Trail 10 years ago, but the lessons I learned remain the very same today...
