How ISO Impacts Your Images

ISO is a term that every photographer, from amateur to pro, has heard of. Surprisingly, though, some photographers are still unfamiliar with all of the different ways that ISO affects their pictures.

 

 

Handpicked Domain names

Finding a good domain name and securing it before someone grabs it can be challenging, especially for people who do not have any experience in doing so. We have been registering domain names and setting up websites since 1998.  We have a small number of domain names that may certainly appeal to photographers worldwide.

Please visit our domain name page and see if any of these domain names are appealing to you. You can also drop us an e-mail if you need assistance in registering domain names and hosting your website(s). At least, we can convey you our opinion and hopefully give you some new ideas.

We can also help you getting started, searching & registering your own domain name and offer you WordPress Hosting or point you in the right direction, depending what your needs are. Our goal is to inspire other photographers and get them an online presence.

 

 

To get more familiar, you can get started by searching the domain names you are interested in using the below form.

How to Master Panning

The art of panning is not something that’s easy to get right. It takes practice and skill, but can produce fantastic results when done correctly. So, what is panning?

Well, essentially the basic idea is that you move your camera along in time with a moving subject (i.e. ‘pan‘ the camera). This results in a sharp subject with a blurred background. It’s a great technique for conveying movement and speed and is commonly used for photographing subjects such as racing cars and animals.

 

 

So, you want to have your own Picfair store?

This tutorial is for photographers who want to setup a Picfair store with a personal domain name. Check out Picfair Plus which gives you a few nice options for a personalized online portfolio where you can sell your photos. This sets you apart from the standard Picfair store where you have to compete with other photographers.  This post doesn’t go into depth on how to configure you store, but hopefully will be a starting point to get the ball rolling. Note: we do not get paid by Picfair for this article. We just love their business model and online store concept.

We have a Picfair promo code for you. Get a discount for your first subscription; first month for monthly subscription or first year for yearly subscription.

Once you have created a Picfair account, you can go shopping for your personal domain name. Instead of a generic Picfair address (https://johndoephotos.picfair.com/  you can consider having a name such as monochome.one, shutterspeed.one,  etc.

Use the below search box to search for something you have in our mind. We will get a small commission if you purchase via the Namecheap search box / site:

Alternatively, you can buy or rent one of the domains we currently own.

Once you have your store setup and have purchased your own domain name, you can configure it easily via the Picfair store setup interface and also make the needed adjustments on your CNAME record on the domain name you just purchased. We can certainly help you doing so and also register and ‘host’ the domain name for you. We will be doing the configuration of the CNAME for you and setup email accounts so that your communications with potential customers are coming from your own domain name () rather than some cheesy gmail accounts.

 

 

10 Killer Tips for Taking Street Photos at Night

There are many reasons why some photographers like taking street photos at night. Of course, the first and most obvious is the fact that the street becomes more alive.

And this is not just because more people go out at night, but also because the night brings a more dramatic, extraordinary effect to otherwise simple scenes. This is true especially for busy streets like those you see in cities.

by MARC SCHENKER
