Wacom Intuos 3 – Review @ PhotographyBlog

Monday, August 15th, 2005

Mark Goldstain reviewed the Wacom Intuos 3 at and wrote:


“The only aspect of the overall package that I didn’t find so useful was the mouse – I continued to use my current mouse along with the tablet and pen and left the Wacom mouse in the box. You will also need to think carefully about which size Wacom Intuos3 will be most suitable for you. I chose to review the A4 version, thinking that bigger was better, but actually found it a little too big in relation to my 17 inch LCD screen – I would probably opt for the A5 version instead (and save some money too). Otherwise, the whole concept of a pen tablet and the Wacom Intuos3 itself are a breath of fresh air, and well worth a place in every photographer’s digital darkroom.”

There are major obstacles to overcome to get into nude photography, not least of which is the need to practise technique.

To some the image of nude photographer is tied in with the “dirty Macintosh” brigade, with the false wig and dark glasses.

Not everyone believes the adage that an erotic photograph, does not have to be nude, and a nude photograph is not necessarily erotic. The biggest challenge is to find a suitable model, and certainly in small town rural backwater areas, it is not the brightest propaganda move to put an advertisement in the Post Office window. It is also suspect to approach someone in the street.

How Many Megapixels Do You need ?

Tuesday, August 9th, 2005

Are you having megapixel envy each time you walk by the camera section of your favorite electronics store? So do I. But, do we really need more and more pixels? The answer depends on what we intend to do with the images. First, a quick definition of megapixel:


Megapixel is a technical term for “million pixels”, where a single pixel is the smallest unit of color that a camera’s sensor is able to capture. The more pixels in the sensor, the sharper the image a camera can reproduce. Note that some camera specifications abbreviate megapixel as “MP”.


Understanding Composition

Saturday, August 6th, 2005

Composition is defined as the combining of distinct parts or elements to form a whole. In photography that definition is very important in taking quality pictures. The following rules of composition should be learned and considered but not necessarily used in every photo. Once you have learned these rules you will be more observant of the possible photo opportunities that surround you. But keep in mind that the really famous photographers usually find a creative way to stretch or break the rules of composition.
