Send an Unusuall Christmas Postcard – Paint and Draw with Light

Painting and drawing with light are two of the most entertaining roads to producing creative photographs. Together they form an area of photography where groups of people of all ages can work together and have fun together.

Last Minute Holiday Photo Shopping

While we saw a veritable sled-full of great photo gear this year, here are few relatively inexpensive items we eyed that we think make excellent gifts for shutterbugs of all levels, without blowing your holiday budget out of the water.


Seeing the Light

Having an eye for photography is about more than just having an eye for great composition. It also means you know how to see light, and when to take your picture. If you’re lucky and catch a “fever” for photography, then the basics like light and composition will become so natural for you that you won’t even think about them—just do them.


Editor’s Choice: Snow

In many parts of the world, the snowy months are approaching, or are already here. It’s a time when our worlds are covered in white. And photographers’ albums are changing from autumn colors to a constant white. If we can ask one thing of you as a Zonerama photographer, it’s that you try to catch the season’s first snowfall in pictures. That’s the time with the most interesting landscapes. We look forward to seeing the resulting pictures on the Zonerama web galleries!

With experience, photographers start thinking about subject placement and the Golden Ratio. But have you ever thought about taking composition to the extreme, for example by shrinking the main subject until it’s almost invisible, or by practically eliminating the background? That’s minimalism. What do you get after that? Well, if you want to take a break from the sea of Christmas ornaments around you, read on.


Editor’s Choice: Prague

Editor’s Choice: Prague

The Czechs call her “Mother of Cities.” You can’t blame them. She really is among the most beautiful cities in Europe. The Czech capital is visited by tourists the world over, and so it’s in many, many pictures. Today we’ve brought you selected takes on Prague posted by photographers on Zonerama.

Editor’s Choice: Trees

Editor’s Choice: Trees

A popular photographic topic, and one that definitely deserves a place in our Editor’s Choice series. Trees have their place in every genre, either as the topic or at least to supplement composition. There are even photographers who exclusively photograph trees, and no other topic. But not all trees stand in forests. Even lumber products like benches, wooden roofs, etc. contain the spirit of the trees.
