Create a bokeh-rific panorama!

One of my favourite photographers on Flickr posts some excellent tutorials on his blog, and I stumbled across this how-to guide on how to create a bokehrama (a panoramic photo with lots of nice blurry bokeh). I hadn't realised the work and effort that went into the resulting image. Nice effect and I shall have to give it a go in 2010!

Choosing a camera when starting photography

People often ask me what camera should they choose when they decide to take up photography, so I have written a brief post on my blog about what you need to consider when deciding whether to buy a DSLR or a bridge camera.

3DVista - panoramic photos in one shot

A friend asked me about taking some shots of their flat today and was wondering how estate agents take those 360 shots of rooms. Well, he found THIS very cool tool... the 3DVista one shot lens. Takes 360 degree panoramics in one shot, and unwarps the shot with included software. Very handy if you're an estate agent, or even for landscape shots.

Nikon have released a very useful lens simulator, showing you the field of view for different Nikkor lenses. Handy!!
