How many colors are there?
We see the world in color, hence the special realism and appeal of color photography, especially since modern digital cameras that shoot in color by default make it extremely accessible.…

The composition defines

Don’t confuse composition with framing. Framing determines the direction of the view and the field of view, and composition determines the relative position of objects. By pointing the camera in different directions, as well as using lenses with different focal lengths, or cropping parts of the image during subsequent editing, you change the amount of space that will fall on the final photo, but you will not be able to correct an unsuccessful composition in this way – move objects relative to each other, make one of the objects larger or smaller in relation to others.

In the North, sixty degrees or higher, the sun moves in a gentle arc, extending the favorable time for photography. The closer the Arctic is, the more light there is in the summer. As well as mosquitoes and midges. Continue reading
