Photography Troubleshooting:How to Photograph FoodMany of us lament about a lack of subjects to Photograph - and almost just as many of us create something on a daily basis that with a bit of presentation, can look like a masterpiece. Food is one of the most accessible Photographic subjects and if you've no idea where to start, hopefully this article will give you a few pointers. Firstly, you don't need an expensive D-SLR in order to capture some of the food masterpieces you see around.
The above was taken with a Sony Cybershot which is a good quality point and shoot camera. As you can see, the focus is crisp, the quality is good and the lighting is adequate. It works well - and it's easy enough to achieve whether you have a D-SLR or something smaller.
Before you start cooking - get prepared. It's the simplest easiest thing to say and you'll likely roll your eyes at such a mundane instruction but there have been many times when I've found mysel
yummy, sweet and delicious.There is no sincerer love than the love of food.

Photography Tips and TutorialsThese are a selection of tips and tutorials both here and on deviantArt that can be useful for before, during, and after portions of taking a good photo. This was originally created as a gathering of useful information for the members of PhotographersClub, but they though it so helpful that it should be shared even further!
Tips & Tutorials on deviantART
First off, did you know you can go here, http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/tutorials/photography/ to search through all of the photography tutorials available here on dA!

Macro Photography - Detail not Visible to the EyeMacro Photography - Show the Detail not Visible to the Eye
Approaching macro photography for the first time can be full of ugliness especially if your first attempts fail badly. Many beginners discover the Depth of Field (DoF) is very small, images are out of focus because the focus is critical in macro photography with the small DoF, Camera shake and subject movement (due to using longer shutter speeds to allow for small apertures and/or not using a sturdy tripod), increased noise (if you use a higher ISO to compensate for the small apertures needed), or badly composed photos. And this can get frustrating.
(the following was already covered in my first article Welcome to the
World of Macro but here is a reminder)
Macro Photography requires special equipment which can get expensive, but so what we photographers like to spend money on equipment. Without some form of macro equipment you will not be able to
Do you have questions concerning photography?This journal is a question-and-answer journal.
You can ask questions, and I will answer them as good as I can.
I am sure this will help the beginners of you somehow.
I will post the already asked questions here and update the journal regularly, so that you can also read the answers to other deviant's questions. Just click on the questions, and you will be able to see the answer.
You may also ask several questions.
And now: GO!
Already asked questions that may interest you (I will only list questions that do not have to do with my personal experience like "What is your best photo?"):

How to improve your skills in close-up-photographySince many people asked me how I take my pictures and why they are so "special", I would like to tell you how I manage things when I take pictures.
I. Finding the location
When I go outside to take pictures of nature, I do barely have any concepts in my mind. I just go and let nature inspire me. The first important step is finding a location.It is not that difficult to find an interesting background. I personally do prefer backgrounds which are not monochrome. Many shades of light (light and dark contrasts or different colors) make your picture interesting, no matter if the final result will be monochrome or colorful in the end.I look out for locations where not many people are. Like a big meadow in front of a house or a field or forests. (Forests do have the special plus that it does almost always have different light shadings I mentioned in 2).
II. Know your possibilities!
You have found your favourite location? Great! Many people do the mistake to

November FeatureAnother Month, another feature. Make sure to check out "Dreams of Geneva" @ https://www.facebook.com/dreamsofgeneva. It's for DA artists to use and promote their work, contests, sneak peaks, earn commissions etc. Run with many artists from here.
I am always looking for new artists. We try to show more than just one style. That way the audience can be a bit broader. The most common is photomanipulation, but we have photographers, models, painters, fine arts, graphic arts, etc.
All of whom I want to thank this month.

Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
