Canon vs Nikon: Which is better?
One camera setting that ruins your pictures
(and more, keep reading):
 

Among our users, we have some of the most talented photographers in the world share advice that you won't find even in the most expensive subscription magazines. That's because some of them only post on our website, so you won't find this information anywhere else! Some of them post under an alias, others disclose their studio name, it's up to them. But in either case you get to read and discover photography techniques that will make you very good at taking pictures.

Unlike other websites, we don't try to pitch DSLRs, lenses, and other gear, while collecting sales commission. We don't sell photography tutorials, books, DVDs and courses, while promising that your photography will improve only if you buy what's being promoted.

Instead, we have other people, who are either professional photographers or serious amateurs, some with decades of experience, share with you what they learned, what gear they use, which products really work and which are useless, which techniques work and which don't.

It's all completely unbiased. Our users simply have no reason to lie to you. They are people just like you.

And we provide a free platform for you and them to communicate. So you get to discover this information straight from the source, from people just like you, not from editors of some magazine or sales reps of some company.

This is what makes us different from other photography websites out there that try to sell you something while claiming they are trying to help you.

If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional photographer, then the benefits of signing up for our free daily photography forum digest are:

• We cover both film and digital photography.

• We talk about professional (D)SLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, mid-range/prosumer models, point-and-shoot, and camera phones.

• We cover all types of photography from portraits to landscapes to action shots to macro photography. (Which one interests you the most? Stop and ask yourself right now. You'll need to be able to answer that in just a minute. No matter what you shoot, you'll get better at just that. Read below to find out why.)

• We cover all aspects of photography from picking gear to composition to working with models, and everything in between.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques on how to take the kind of pictures that will make your friends, relatives and peers just stare in amazement, speechless, when they see your work. Yep! That's how good your photography will become.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a photography forum digest with the latest photography tips, tricks, reviews and discussions.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• And of course, it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for photographers, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

Last night we went to the Luminaria event at the Desert Botanical Gardens. Where this photo was taken, there was a fire pit nearby, but not in the shot. Although it looks like it, the glove wasn't on fire. What's going on here? Is this some type of diffraction efffect?

Maybe a reflection off the lens to the back of the filter you had on it.

You may well be correct.

However it may have happened, I think the mystery fire makes the shot more interesting.

Looks like it was shot through a window with a firepit reflected in the glass.
There are other reflections present as well.

No, it was shot across the table - no window involved.

No idea what camera was used, but the only other explanation would be a double exposure, including one underexposed shot with the firepit in the scene.

Were St. Elmo, Lucifer, or Vulcan on the guest list?

It was a Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS100. While I think it take multiple exposures, I've never done so, at least knowingly.

Are you using a UV filter on the lens? Maybe a reflection off of that? It is odd...

There is no UV filter - the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS100 doesn't take filters.

There wouldn't be a UV filter, as the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS100 doesn't accept them.

As a Brit I would say that the guy with the gloves is "light fingered" , just don't Google "Hot fingered" unless you want way too much information...
