Review: “The Art of Digital Blending” Video Course by Jimmy McIntyre

Instead of teaching us how to use Photoshop, Jimmy teaches us how to improve our photography. He does not try to scare users with technical mumbo jumbo; instead, Jimmy takes the approach of simplification, making it easy to follow and digest.


Photo Location Guide: New York City – the Best Spot to Photograph Panoramas of Manhattan

Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of visiting and photographing New York on may occasions and I know what my favorite photo location in New York is: it’s Hamilton Park. From my perspective, the view from Hamilton Park represents the essence of the city because of: its condensed nature, architecture with iconic structures everywhere, and unique to New York city color patterns.

Photo Location Guide: Cape Tryon – Prince Edward Island (Canada)

Cape Tryon always on my to-do list when I visit Prince Edward Island. It’s the one place I visit every time I’m there. It has all of my favorite landscape photography hallmarks: dramatic ocean views, a picturesque shoreline, a lighthouse and endless fields. The cliffs are elevated about 30 meters over the sea and feature thousands of nesting birds. It’s all amazing – and it isn’t very well-known either, so there are few visitors.


Blue Hour at Niagara Falls (Canada)

Niagara Falls consist of 3 separate waterfalls. The biggest and most impressive one is Horseshoe Falls which lie mostly on the canadian side of the Niagara River. Two other ones are  American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls which are located on US side. When you walk along Niagara River, you have a magnificent view of each falls, but due to the narrowness of the river, it is not easy get all 3 of them into one composition.
