Are Digital Artists the new stars in photography?

Have you ever thought about your opinion on photo editing?

Landscape and wildlife photographers often keep info regarding locations and motifs they find particularly interesting to themselves. One reason for that is that in times of internet and google maps other photographers soon find out about them and the locations or motifs become “overphotographed”. One additional reason is provided by the story about a tree ...

Mountains with a halo – Reuben Wu’s stunning photography

Those among you who use Instagram a lot and who, like me, are interested in drone landscape photography in particular, probably know Reuben Wu already.
