What's inside?
The more you train your eye to notice the details, the more interesting your photographs will become.

Lines are one of the fundamental building blocks of composition. They direct the eye around an image and give the viewer a path to follow.

Colours determine the viewer's emotional response to an image. They set the mood and determine what part of an image gets the most attention.

Photographing a reflection creates a more unique image of an often photographed subject by adding interest and depth to your photograph.

One way you can add drama, intrigue, and mystery to an image is by photographing your subject as a silhouette. Deep contrasts make for powerful and memorable images.

Often a story is better told in a series of images that reveal more about the essence of a subject than a single image can.

One way to quickly add a new dimension to your subject is to give it a frame inside the boundaries of the image.

That time before a sunrise or after a sunset.

    • Hi - if you are in Australia it will recognise that unless you use a VPN.
      What you can do is contact support and tell them you are travelling but still want your home country to be the US. Otherwise login with a VPN set to US.

      Hope this helps.
