Astrophotography is a discipline dedicated to photographing the night sky in all its splendor. For this exercise to be successful, there are a series of environmental conditions, equipment demands and photographic operational- plus post-production techniques that we will explore in broad lines in in this arti
Fill-in flash is useful in many situations, even if we only have the built-in flash at hand. Even though an external flash offers a wide range of additional options and is recommended to achieve more professional results, the built-in flash is useful in many situations and can be slightly more versatile if we either make or buy an accessory called flash diffuser, which has the objective to “soften” the light.
Maybe you have been wondering if your branded flash is giving you the best bang for the buck.Or maybe you need more illuminating power when on location, without dragging around studio strobes, heavy power inverters and bags of extension cables; that is, if you have access to a wall outlet at all...

It takes a while to get the hang of it, but once you do, geo-tagging is big fun. It only takes a compatible Nikon camera and a relatively cheap device to all of a sudden find yourself and your images totally Googlearthed.
