My blog is a place of idle ramblings that may help other photographers, and act as a diary for myself. Nothing too serious and maybe, occasionally, helpful.

Disclaimer : this post is not serious photography! It's just a general blog article provided for information with some demo images.

I don't know about you, but I am always seeking knowledge to improve my photography. The best teacher is of course experience, and the more photographs I take, the better I become, for sure.
