Unlike Bridge, which is a browser, Lightroom is a database, so everything needs to be imported before it can be viewed.

photography-tips16a.jpgThere is the temptation to believe that you don’t need any filters for your digital camera, that you can do it all in Photoshop.

Site contributor Wayne Cosshall writes: In my film days my camera bag was filled with filters, and filter systems, such as the Cokin one.

Photography Tip - Understanding Depth of Field
photography-tips15a.jpgDepth of field is one of the least well-used aspects of photographic control. Yet it really is very simple to get your head around. A camera lens will actually only focus one single, flat (if it is a good lens) plane perfectly. As you move away from the plane of sharp focus, objects become gradually more blurred.

Photography Tips For File Formats & Digital Photos
When you save a digital image, you normally have to choose what format you want to save it in, regardless of whether you're saving the shot in the camera's memory card or to a computer. Most digital cameras provide between one and three file format options plus a range of 'quality' settings.
