PHOTO: Golden Hall at Stockholm City Hall, Site of the Nobel Laureate Ball

The stunning Golden Hall at Stockholm City Hall is one of the highlights on the tour of the city’s municipal center. However, it is just one of many things that make this building so famous. The 348-foot tall structure, built entirely of brick, was completed in 1923. Nearly eight million bricks were used in its construction. The three golden crowns atop the central tower are a reflection of the Swedish Coat of Arms. Stockholm’s City Hall is perhaps best known as the venue for the annual Nob...

Diego Costa reaches out to Michy Batshuayi after Watford

Chelsea 4 – Watford 2 It looked like Chelsea were heading for their fourth match on the spin without a win on Saturday. And Watford will be kicking themselves for not beating Chelsea. Richarlison had tow glorious opportunities to score at Stamfrod Bridge in the second half, but the Brazilian fluffed both opportunities. And that opened the door for Chelsea to comeback to win the game. Pedro Rodriguez fired the Blues ahead, but Watford turned the match with goals from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Rober...

How to Become a Proficient Photographer As Fast As Possible

One of the biggest concerns of any photographer who wants to become seriously dedicated to photography is to achieve “professional” status – or at least a meaningfully high standard in photography. To achieve this, any photographer must surpass the “entry level” label. The world of photography lives with an identity stigma that revolves around differentiating what it means to be an “amateur photographer” and a “professional photographer”. For me, everything comes down to whether the shooter is p...

How to Install Presets in Lightroom

Lightroom is unquestionably a powerful image processing application; even if you were to make use of only its built-in tools, you (and your photos) would be in pretty good shape. But, as with anything, there’s always room for improvement. Fortunately, Lightroom makes it easy for users to fill in gaps left by the software. One of the most common ways of extending Lightroom’s usability and expanding its power is via the use of presets. Lightroom presets, in short, allow you to enhance (improve?) ...

Bite Size Tips: Understand These Concepts of Light for Better Photographs

As photographers, we should all know that without light, there is no photography.  Photography is nothing but capturing light that is reflected off objects and the colours that we capture depend on the colour of light that is reflected by those objects. There are no real light hacks. In order to create beautiful photographs, you NEED to understand light. This ranges from ‘how it works' and ‘how it can be altered' using various means to get the perfect image. It all comes down to careful ...

YouTuber Entrepreneur Sued by “Malicious” Photographer for Stealing Copyrighted Photo

Have you ever heard of a thief stealing an object from a store then blaming the store because it had “maliciously” placed said object on the shelf for sale, all but inviting theft?

Bite Size Tips: 3 Tips For More Powerful Clouds In Your Landscapes

You might be wondering what a clear day with no clouds could be a better to photograph some beautiful landscapes. While this could be true, there is something truly magical and dramatic about clouds, that they can completely change the mood of a landscape and give them a different meaning and perspective.
