Einunndalen, Norway

I guess it’s about time that we make a post about our Header Image for our blog. Here are the photo itself along with more from the same area called Einunndalen in Norway.

Helicopter

A helicopter was flying up and down to a new cell phone antenna, finishing their work and taking equipment back from the hill, when I decided to take some shots with the Nikkor 200-500 f/5.6 VR on the Nikon D750. Enjoy!

20 tips to improve your photography

As most of us, I guess you’ve come  home, uploading your pictures to your computer, browsing through your pictures eager to share them online and thinking…. “hmm, I don’t want to share any of these online, not even those I was sure would be great when I pressed the shutter button”.
