If you are new to photography or cinematography, choosing the right type of lens that suits your specific use can be daunting. This is because lenses come in not just a range of focal lengths but also in numerous zoom lengths. Unless you are a professional photographer and know exactly what you need, it is important to test a lens before deciding to buy. The best way to do so …

How do you keep your travel photography original? It’s close to impossible to answer that question with a few words, but Anton Charushin doesn’t need words to do that. He just does headstands. A lot of them.
Anton, 27, from Russia got into breakdancing in high school where he realised that doing headstands is pretty good for your blood circulation and general wellbeing. Well, and then there were the creative benefits. Tagging …

I have never been on a cold weather holiday. Every January, as we enter the depths of bleak mid-winter here in the UK, my little brain awakens from its gentle festive fugue of eat, sleep, drink, repeat, and starts to plan how best to flee the country to get some much needed Vitamin D. Occasionally I have allowed myself to get seduced by the idea of romantic treks through pine …

For years, photographers have been drawn to Namibia‘s northwest – to a community living among the majestic Makalani palms at Palmfontein: the Himba. They invite visitors to see how they live and learn about their proud and ancient culture. From skin care to clothing and perfume, many Himba continue traditional practices that have remained unchanged for generations. Yet, they are becoming familiar with modern lifestyles through the visitors. They are …

I thought that when I saw a photo of the duo behind 365 docobites via the brilliant Humans of Amsterdam Facebook page (which of course is influenced by the mahoosively popular Humans of New York) that was the first time I’d heard of the project.

With Debra from Humans of Amsterdam.

But a quick navigation around their website and I realised I’d seen some of their work before on Sailing HR’s Facebook …

There are certain wonders of nature that will fascinate every single human being on this planet. The colourful clouds dancing across the winter sky of the northern hemisphere are one of those wonders. The eyes of even the hardest-boiled beach goers and fans of tropical climates are lighting up when they hear about them. I hardly know anybody who doesn’t dream of seeing them: northern lights.
I have always been drawn north …

Siestas! Yet another reason the beautiful city of Barcelona is our kinda town. After a sangria-soaked, leisurely luncheon, what better way to prep yourself for your evening shenanigans than a nice, long snooze? Venture out for a ramble around Las Ramblas, exploring the twisty lanes that make up the Barrio Gotico, La Ribera/El Borne and El Raval barrios during afternoon nap-time and you’ll notice the streets can be like a …

When Dave Tomkins’ grandfather, Stephen Clarke, moved into a nursing home in Australia, Dave helped clear out his house and came across a bunch of old slides taken all over the world. He then asked his grandfather (who never saw himself as a travel photographer) where they were taken – without success: “I got the slides scanned and took them down to show him, in the hope of some of those special …

Ok, I lied in the title. I had about 30 hours when I explored Brno the other weekend. But as most of my time was spent in the dark halls of Klub Fléda – 60% social media barcamp, only 40% party, I swear – I had significantly less than 24 hours to roam the streets of this colourful little town. But let’s just assume you have a day to spend …

Most girls I know have a certain special item of clothing they can’t bear to travel without. A go to dress; some comfy shorts; that perfectly battered pair of trusty Converse that are just about to fall apart… Well, for Jennifer Salvage that item happens to be a little bit more unusual. You see, Jennifer travels with her wedding dress.
It all started on March 19th 2008, when Jennifer and Jeff said …
