Join digital artist, Benjamin Von Wong, as he gives us a behind the scenes look at a Paralympic dressage photoshoot. Von Wong breaks down three different photographs and gives us a rundown on what he was shooting for, how each was lit, and the troubles each scene presented:
As travel photography becomes increasingly popular among photographers, we are seeing an insurgence of people wanting to take their photography to the next level by creating timelapse videos.
Macro photography is one of the most exciting photographic genres. Unlike, say, travel photography, where everybody and their brother has a decent picture of the Eiffel Tower, a macro lens allows photographers to explore the details of miniature worlds that normally go unnoticed by the human eye, offering never-before-seen perspectives.
Topaz Detail is designed to create tack-sharp and highly detailed photos by enhancing natural sharpness and taking full control over image detail.
