by Rudyard Kipling.

THEY shut the road through the woods
Seventy years ago.
Weather and rain have undone it again,
And now you would never know
There was once a road through the woods
Before they planted the trees.
It is underneath the coppice and heath,
And the thin anemones.
Only the keeper sees
That, where the ring-dove broods,
And the badgers roll at ease,
There was once a road through the woods.

Yet, if you enter the woods Of a summer evening late, When the night-air cools on the trout-ringed pools Where…

Rainbows are spectacularly amazing.

They have a hidden talent, the ability to make everyone stop in their tracks and take in their beauty. No matter how many times we’ve seen them, there’s something about those colors in the sky that never loses its intrigue. Part of what makes them intriguing, perhaps, is just how short-lived they are! Rainbows appear and disappear in a moment, giving us just a brief window to capture and enjoy them.

But rainbows aren’t just challenging because of their fleeting nature — it can be extremely challenging just to capture a genuinely outstanding rainbow photo. Often, what you see in…

As the snow melts from our rooftops, and our flowerbeds wake from their winter slumbers, photographers get their cameras ready to snap the change of the seasons.

Personally, I found that it is one of the most exciting times of the year, where a new world is there for the taking — taking of photos that is.But how do you go about taking photos for this new season? A new season means new possibilities, so you gotta be sure that everything goes right for a first photoshoot. So as a photographer, how do you approach the spring?

Today, I wanted to go over some photo spring tips; some tricks and good advice how to take some awesome photos when everything starts to warm after the hard winter…


Weekly Poems to Motivate you in Photography.

A single cloud in a blue sky

by William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such…

Journalists write — photojournalists snap moments.

Both fields are important when reporting the news, but as a picture is worth a thousand words, photojournalists have a leg up on most all other kinds of media. They often travel to places of particular note or may live in a certain area to catch events as they unfold. You could be a war correspondent, or capturing events in your home town. Wherever you are working, your job is to bear witness to events and capture them in a way that will evoke something in the viewer.

I think anyone aware of this line of work is aware of…

Whether exploring a plant to get a look at a new world, or examining what an insect’s perspective might be, it is amazing the possibilities of Macro photography — when it is done right.

Macro photography can be beautiful. The definition of Macro photography is producing photos of small items larger than life-size, which can be some of the best photos you take this year. However, I often find as a veteran photographer on Instagram disappointed by the #macrophotography hashtag, as the quality of each and every single photo (put plainly in the hashtag) is bad.

In the age where most phones have a setting for this on their phones, Macro photography has become a lost art: One where only the best of the best can stand out. Sadly, not very many can break…
