ISO Settings for Night Photography

The purpose of this article is to familiarize the user with the best practices regarding ISO settings for night photography. We will go over a basic introduction to ISO as well as a short guide on using different ISO values in relation to other camera settings in order to achieve best results. One of the reasons casual photographers decide to upgrade to a DSLR camera is so they can capture quality photos during night. However, DSLRs often require understanding of different camera settings and shooting parameters in order to achieve best possible image quality for night photography. One of these settings is called ISO. #mc_embed_signup{background:#fff; clear:left; font:14px Helvetica,Arial,sans...

Champions Academy Tbilisi

Champions Academy in Tbilisi is a gym/ fitness / crossfit training facility, located on a 4-storey building on David Agmanashebeli avenue.  I've enrolled at Champions Academy at the start of February 2017, with a goal to train my heart using cardio vascular trainings, also I'm using a little bit weight lifting and some crossfit workouts.  The gym seem to be open starting 7:00 AM, which is great because of two reasons - first I love to exercise in the mornings, and second yes, this gym is located really close to our apartment.  Unfortunately during the early hours, there are no trainers / coaches available, and I'm left to train my self using knowledge I have from my previous almost 20 years (though irregular training sessions). Luckily YouTube helps a lot. The...

Beautiful sunsets, silky waterfalls, pin-sharp stars all over the skies – we all have seen such photographs and have also attempted to capture something like that, often with less than spectacular results. In this article, I will tell you what settings you can use to ensure that you get the shot you want. There are many factors which affect the final image like ISO, shutter speed, sensor size etc. But for landscape photography, perhaps knowing the right aperture and the concept of hyper focal distance would prove to be the most useful. #mc_embed_signup{background:#fff; clear:left; font:14px Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; width:100%;} /* Add your own MailChimp form style overrides in your site stylesheet or in this style block.

Restaurant Kus Tba (Turtle Lake) in Tbilisi

Restaurant Kus Tba is located next to the popular recreational area Turtle lake in Tbilisi, here serves a traditional Georgian cuisine in a touristic sauce.  I have been to this place several times, I cannot tell neither good, neither bad - I'm more neutral regarding this place, it definitely is not the cheapest, but also not the most expensive, from what I have met in Tbilisi. See Tbilisi restaurant reviews. I have my favorite Turtle lake restaurant, maybe that's way I cannot be objective today - Intelligentsia Coffee Bar Tbilisi, which actually is located just few meters way from Kus...
