Today, the technological advances in the field of photography has grown by leaps and bounds. Cameras today produce beautiful, high-resolution images, automatic settings, high-speed shutter settings, etc. Even post-processing has improved immensely, thanks to computers and Photoshop. You can see your picture immediately, so you have the option to delete it or to keep it, an option not available with earlier film cameras. Because of this, everyone can now be a photographer. In fact, it’s almost like spoon-feeding. The question is, ‘Where is the challenge in that?’
An artist needs no permission to display his art and his creativity has no boundaries. Street art is a perfect illustration of this aspect in artists. Although this art form is unsanctioned no one can stop it from expansion. Graffiti is different from corporate art which is painted for advertisement purposes. For some street artists there is no reason other than personal expression. Some street artists, however, use their art as a way to subvert the mainstream or raise political or social issues.
Apart from the reasons that gave birth to street art, the brilliance, endowment and ingenuity of graffiti artists is undeniable. There are as many examples of street “doodles” as there are boulevard virtuosos in the world. Many of them are so picturesque and breathtaking that you can not keep stop looking. Here are some that I can’t stop looking at, enjoy.Read More

These are all different and incompatible, though. These image formats have their own pros and cons. They were created for specific, yet different, purposes. What’s the difference, and when is each format appropriate to use?Read More

Photography is a technical and practiced form of art. It’s not an easy form of fascination, since several aspects are at play in a photograph: lighting, focus, composition, subject and more.

Glamour, landscape, events, micro and portrait photographers need a handy photo editing software to improve their photos.

Personally, I appreciate photos so much especially when they have illusion effects. Photos with illusions amaze me a lot. What could we get with these illusions? First, let us know the definition of illusion.
Wikipedia defines illusion as:
“A distortion of the senses, revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. While illusions distort reality, they are generally shared by most people.”
