Post processing tutorialBy request I have created a new post photography post processing tutorial on fredrikstromme.selz.com/
In this 44 minutes post processing tutorial we are going to transform a photo taken in broad daylight, into looking as it was taken in the golden hour.
You will be working first in Lightroom, and then in Photoshop.
In Lightroom you will learn to add light, shadows and adding a warmer colortone in both highlights and shadows.
You will learn how to remove burned out spots and how to add a hazy and warm sunlight, and also how to remove the parts you don`t want affected by the sunlight using masking.
In Photoshop you will learn how to add more warm natural light, how to soften it by using the orton effect and also how to add sun rays.
You will also learn layer masking, luminosity masking, adding a warm filter and grouping layers.
Basic skills are needed.

I want to try and make this an educational series, so something new to learn with each letter! I am planning on discussing history, techniques and a variety of terms used in photography. If you have a suggestion for a letter, please let me know! I haven't filled the entire alphabet yet!
I hope you'll enjoy!
Photography ABC's - A is for...
Aperture is an opening through which light travels. The bigger the opening, the more light will travel through it. It is one of the most fundamental aspects in exposing your photograph, while at the same time it is a fundamental aspect for the depth of field in the same photograph. Each aperture stop has a number assigned to it that will tell you how far open it is. Below, a schematic view of what we're ab

When a picture is worth a thousand words
Photojournalism is something that is close to my heart, even though I don't practice it very much myself. It is a category of photography that doesn't get as much attention as fashion photography for instance. However, photojournalism is a very important part of our society, but also to the art and journalism world.
I recently learned that my grandfather was a photojournalist during the second world war and for some time after that. He documented some of the most gruesome scenes during the second world war in Holland and Germany, while trying to stay out of the hands of people who did not approve. But after the war, he got to capture some of the happiest faces he ever would.
Photojournalism is a form of photography and journalism that I think deserves more attention. This is why I hope to teach you something about it today, during our Pho
Quick guide on how to do Macro the cheap way.Photography Week
There are a lot of different techniques to create Macro photos, some are expensive, like a dedicated Macro lens, and some are are cheaper, like close-up filters or with the technique I'm just going to explain. If you already have an entry level DSLR with the kit lens, you already have everything to do Macro, al you have to do is to reverse the lens:
The tools I'm going to use for this tutorial:
My first DSLR a Nikon D3000.
A 50mm f1.8 lens, the most affordable lens you can purchase, although you can use the standard 18-55mm lens that came with your camera.
A piece of paper and some tape (this is optional).
And this will be my subject, an SD card:

Seven Tips for (Beginner) Photographers
First knowledge, then gear
I often get asked "what is the best camera?" or "with what lens do I take the prettiest pictures?". From someone who is entirely new to photography, those aren't strange questions, though for many photographers who have been photographing for a certain amount of time it's common knowledge that no camera is the best and the same goes for lenses and any other kind of gear you could dream of. If you were to get a 3000 euro camera, but know nothing about photography, your picture will look the same as they would on a 300 euro camera.
The gear you want to get or will buy strongly depends on what you want to do with it. If you want to take photographs of landscapes mainly, you'd buy a wide-angle or multi purpose lens, not a macro or a telezoom lens. As a beginner, it is smart to learn first. Study. Get a camera you can grow with, but don't g
Comment Month: June!Alongside our Monthly Photography Critique Thread, we are hosting a Comment Month this June!
Every single one of us deserves at least one insightful comment on our deviations. We have all needed to start somewhere and some just need that extra boost to really get going.
Our timeline is as follows:
1st – 7th June: Members of CRPhotography and PhotographyGuide can suggest one deviation for a chance to receive some comments. This is a chance for any underappreciated artist to get the comments they deserve.
7th - 30th June: Anybody and everybody can comment on the submissions we received for Comment Month. More information on the day.
1st - 7th July: Comment Month is over, but other things are just beginning. Deviants who have commented constructively on over three submissions will receive a news and page feature and
