Macro photography is not only about the subject, it’s how you set up your shot so that the images you create are not only natural but it also captures the essence of nature. This particular video shows you how to take water droplets present on a spider web. Simple objects awesome picture!
This Video shows you the difference in F stops and what it means to your subjects. Depth of Field is a good way to help your viewers see what’s important to you in your image or what you are trying to focus on in your image.
There comes a time when everyone who has a special hobby thinks, “Wouldn’t it be great if I could turn this interest of mine into a living, maybe even a way of life?” What could be more enticing than everyday being able to do what you enjoy doing, and getting paid for it at the same time? Right from the start it may sound like a pipe dream; a pie-in-th-sky, even irresponsible thing to consider. But the thought keeps following you and you can’t help but wonder what it would take for you to pull it off. What if you could actually quit your job (if it hasn’t already quit you) and you could be your own boss and you could do this incredible thing that you love to do?
Here are a series of articles and videos that talks about the Rule of Thirds.
The rule of thirds is one of the most fundamental guidelines in photography, if you know about the concept, it will easily help you make better images. The concept proposes that an image should be sub-divided into nine equal squares by having 2 horizontal and 2 vertical imaginary lines equally spaced, and the objects of the image should be placed along these lines or along the intersection of these lines.

This video is from B&H Event Space seminar, David brommer looks into Beyond The Rule of Thirds by touching on many different aspects of photographic composition.
Additional Resources about Composition which include rule of thirds to read.
One of the first questions to ask yourself when composing your picture is: “What is my subject?” Of all the things you see in front of you, which one is the reason for taking the photo? Once you’ve answered that question you can begin to work on how best to show that subject. The rule of thirds is a guide to help you do just that.
This rule of photography applies to much more than landscape images – it also applies to portraits. When framing a tight crop of a portrait, many new photographers will place their model’s face dead center. However, when we look at a portrait we typically are drawn to the eyes as the focal point – this means that if we follow the rule of thirds, we should place the eyes on the top third of our image – this makes for a more balanced photo.
