The Importance of Captions in PhotographyWhat IS a Caption?tanikel
We all know that a picture is worth a thousand words...but a caption is priceless, especially in photojournalism. It's the background, the explanation to your photograph. It tells us why we should care. Austin Kleon provides an interesting insight on them in his article The Power of Captions: Words Added to Pictures.
Also, I'm trying to compress a 2 hour class into a single journal. If you're interested in writing according to the AP Style Guide (I'm talking about commas, dates, location abbreviations, identification, etc.), there's a pretty sweet link at the bottom of the journal.
What's going on in this picture? Is the soldier drawing a beautiful picture of the lady? Is she writing the lady a ticket? Who knows!
Tips for the APN PhotographerAdding Artistic Flair to Your Animal PhotographyJenFruzz
So many people love photographs of animals. From a begging puppy to the intense gaze of a tiger, there's something beautiful and grabbing about domestic and wildlife portraiture. If you have spent much time in the animal-related photography galleries, you know the rate of submissions is pretty fast. There is a constant influx of new work being submitted all day, every day. Many photographers starting out in this arena often wonder how they can make their animal photography stand out in the crowd. Check out these two helpful hints to add some flair to your animal photography!
The Rule of Thirds and Depth of Field:

WHOoo there? - Defining owl species. Useful linksOwl-House
Hi guys! For many of us, who regularly draws and makes photos of owls its is a common problem to identify the owl species. There are roughly 225 species of owls in the world, depending on how various geographic populations and subspecies are classified. These birds come in many shapes, sizes and colors, but they are all related and belong to one of two scientific bird family classifications. So its is good, when you know local species and know basic information about their appearance. But what if you see an owl photo without description? This week I was amazed by the photo of a Crested Owl (Lophostrix cristata) from Equador https://www.flickr.com/photos/22246237n04/4126069736
So I decided to post few useful links which help you to identify the owl you see.

Urbex - ChurchesA collection of truly amazing photographs emerged this month from a group of Photographers who refer to themselves as 'Urbex Central.' In 2011, Christchurch Cathedral in New Zealand, was devestated by an earthquake. Tourists can line up outside and peer in at the destruction that the quake caused, but nobody had, until recently, ventured in. The photos show us scenes that most people will never see in their lifetime..and it's quite eerie. The group also ventured into other buildings in the area and shared the photos on their website. You can read more here. For more churches elsewhere online check out 7 Creepiest abandoned churches.So this month the theme is abandoned churches - or cathedrals - whatever DeviantART has to offer...Kaz-D
