Girona A classic example of "f/8 and be there". I used my Leica M9 with 50/1.5 Sonnar

Photography has been a large part of how we have earned a living for the last 40+ years. Unfortunately for us, that living is now declining fast because the same is true of photography as of journalism: everyone wants everything for free on the internet. But we still know quite a lot about it, and there are quite a lot of people who want to learn about it, so it seems a shame to let all that knowledge die with us. Well, of course, it won't die, but it won't be anything as like as widely disseminated, and if ever fewer people share ever less knowledge, it will surprisingly rapidly be reduced to an excessively low common denominator.

Blur Photography cannot be defined. I'd just walked out of the shop where I bought the Nikon Df and was having trouble with an overly sensitive shutter release. But I liked the results! Nikkor 50/1.8

There are several kinds of pages on photography, some of which tell you about the pictures on non-photographic pages. This saves writing long, technical captions in non-photographic pieces, but leaves open the option of reading about the photography anyway if you are interested. The first two examples are about the pictures on the home page, and the picture of the roots and wall in the PPE+M section.

See also, our original web-site, which has an immense amount on it about photography, especially film-based. And don't forget, where you'll get access to longer and often more technical articles on photography.
