Photography in the wintertime is, and always is, a tricky challenge. Not only do you have to brave the cold weather (with your fogged lenses too), deal with shorter batteries (since they don’t last as long in the cold), but falling snow is also a major part of the equation. Yes, snow can ruin your camera and equipment, but it can also yield beautiful images. That is, with this ONE simple trick. Use a flash for snow photography.

Did it ever happen to you that you took a shot in camera but visualized something totally different with your eye? Have you ever wondered how to turn a seemingly ‘ordinary’ image into a cinematic scene?

In this third article of the Lightroom Editing Series, we’ll turn a mundane scene of a New York yellow taxi into a cinematic-style piece of art. The picture itself was shot using a Fuji X-Pro1, 35mm f/1.4 lens at 1/125 sec @ f/1.4, ISO 400.

Photograph IO : Plans for 2015

Prague
The train has departed, prague

With 2014 being over for all of us all around the planet, it is now time for 2015 to come in all its force!

First things first. We’d first like to thank all of our loyal readers for your continued support throughout the creation of the blog in July 2014 all the way up to now. A lot of great things are announced for 2015. Stay tuned!

As Photograph IO’s editor-in-chief, I’m also giving you guys a gift, a sneak peek in my work : although many of you have seen my landscape work over at 500px (as well as an excellent guide to get popular on that platform) and Flickr (a guide coming soon?), I finally decided to publish many of my urban/street work in a large portfolio which can be accessed here; hope you guys enjoy!

On the blog side, we’ve also striving to stick to a few resolutions, if you mind to call them as such 😛 Here we go:

To sum up, more content is on the way. Hell yeah.

For those of you who hasn’t seen our list of Photograph IO 2014 Articles, there is some serious stuff coming to the blog, as well as smaller, regular posts to keep you readers occupied!

1) Reviews are definitely coming to the blog. Now that I’ve owned every single photography factor, ranging from small format (phones), APS-C, Full-Frame and Medium Format, I definitely feel comfortable making some reviews about the gear I use.
