Photographs have no depth. They're two-dimensional facsimiles of a three-dimensional world.

But photographers, like magicians, deal in illusion. If we understand what creates the illusion of depth in a photograph and how to enhance that illusion, we can make our images more believable.

Lightroom really makes printing a breeze, with many features for all your printing needs. You can place multiple-size images on a single page, and have multiple pages of multiple-picture layouts. You can even use draft-mode printing, which renders from the Previews. This is even more amazing, because you can select a group of images, print them as a PDF, and accomplish the task in seconds.

Here are a couple of tips on how to do just that.

Landscape photographers often find themselves in challenging light. If you're at all experienced with shooting landscapes, then you know that the best light happens in the hour or so right around sunrise and sunset. The so-called "golden hour" is when we get nice, warm light and excellent opportunities for side-lighting to bring out the texture in terrain. If you shoot right around sunrise and sunset, though, you'll also get the problem of too much dynamic range.

I can't imagine a more perfect morning than the one we chose to go ballooning over the temples in Bagan, Myanmar on our recent photo safari. There was a soft breeze, only a few clouds, and the temperature was perfect. As the sun rose over the mountains in the east, it lit up the first of the literally thousands of temples and pagodas on our route with a golden light that made their historic brick facades glow.

This article happens to be about orchid photography, but it could just as well be about photographing roses or model airplanes, or any small, detailed object that you're interested in. I tried growing orchids for several years, and thus followed the popular forums and looked for photos on the internet, like anyone else who is delving into a hobby. As you might expect, I found some really beautiful photos, but many more that were awful.

Most of my clients prefer at least some color studies during their session, and I love working with the complete palette that life has to offer. The process of selecting backgrounds to bring out a child’s eye color, or using color to create harmony between siblings, fuels my artistic passion.

Many photographers try to break down the concept of flash photography into what they think are the understandable elements: the numerical values of the settings used. They want numbers, they want the f-stop. However, the scenarios we encounter as photographers vary so much that it becomes meaningless for anyone to “give you the f-stop.”

Samsung's TL500 digital camera is a 10-megapixel point and shoot with an f1.8–2.4 Schneider-Kreuznach (35mm-equivalent) 24-72mm lens—one of the fastest and one of the widest lenses available on a point-and-shoot camera. It is also RAW capable.
