It’s Passover here in Israel, and that means that during the week-long holiday, pretty much everyone in Israel is going out to explore Israel and travel wherever they can. And so did I with a group of friends. We took a long (too long) drive to the Dead Sea area to the Mishmar Stream track.

Food Photography is one of the most popular art forms around. It has come a long way from the past when an amateur photographer would have to use the best camera. They could afford to take pictures of their food. Now, there are several affordable food photography apps, which allow you to take professional-looking photos using your smartphone.

Sports photography is a style of photography where you intentionally take photos of sports or other people doing sports. The most common sports are football, baseball, basketball, tennis, and volleyball. Sports photography is a tricky beast. You need a fast lens to capture fast action, but you also need to cut down on motion blur since motion blur can make a shot look blurry, and blur causes motion to be harder to detect. So if you want to shoot well, you need a fast lens, but you also need to take enough care to avoid motion blur.
Light meters have been a part of photography for a long time. In their earliest incarnations, they were used to measure the intensity of sunlight to calibrate the photo exposure settings.

There are few things more satisfying than taking photos of the moon, star fields, or even the Milky Way. But, getting the perfect shot of the night sky can be tricky. Luckily, there are some tools that can help you achieve great results.

However, this will limit your ability to capture the Milky Way; you’ll need to make sure your camera’s lens is wide enough to capture the entire sky. Night-time photography is an art form that is inspired by photography during the day. It is a style of photography that captures the beauty of the night sky and the nighttime environment.
