Landscape format vs. Portrait format


Most of us take pictures in landscape mode. It's only natural: in the horizontal our field of vision encompasses about 180 degrees, but vertically only about 130 degrees. So we see in widescreen, so to speak. Computer monitors and televisions are designed for landscape-format representation. Cameras are designed so that we can conveniently take pictures in landscape format.

Learning to make shapes with lines


A few weeks ago in our blog we posted a contribution regarding the most common mistakes. Are you, too, often not really satisfied with your pictures?

One day in Venice


When setting off on a quick getaway to Venice a few days ago, we didn’t want to cart all our camera equipment with us, so we chose Tamron’s AF 18-270-mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD travel zoom lens as an alternative. Its focal distance ranges from extreme wide angle to super tele, and the zoom range on the APS-C sensor extends to 27-405 mm (equivalent to 35-mm format), which is perfect for capturing the diverse subjects found in a city like Venice using one single lens.
