Things are not always as they seem. Find it out by clicking on each picture.
Let’s say you have only 8 sequential shoots but you need at least 40 otherwise the sequence is too short or not smooth enough. How could you fill the gaps?
– Open the sequential pictures in Photoshop
– File > Scripts > Load files into stack
– Add Open files and tag Attempt to Automatically Align Source Images (if you did not shoot on tripod, you could get quite funny effects from this option)
– Window > Animation
– Top right menu of the newly open animation window: Make Frames from Layer
– Top right menu of the animation window: Reverse Frames and Optimize Animation
Where to test the Nikkor 16-35 mm under this grey, equal sky today? Not outside, although I got this lens for border less skies and full size buildings.. . The minimal distance from the lens is 28 cm … none of my other lens can reach it. Let’s test it with flowers and apples! Awesome lens, it substituted my 17-35 mm dream lens but I am not aware of what I lost. For sure, I earned a VR stabilizer, very useful at least for “macro” subjects. Let’s hope in Spring finally coming for outdoor tests …
Artborghi’s call for guest posts and photographers: contribute art and tutorial to the fast growing artborghi photoblog
1. You have original pictures you would like online to share with the community

Here is a good way to start opening your artwork to the world:
a. Select a couple of your best shots

e. Click on big white “Follow” button on the top right of artborghi blog page to get immediate feedback on your art!
We will give you platform and visibility through the fast growing artborghi photoblog and the several networks we belong (click the post picture to zoom). You send us your art we do the rest (picture and text composition, post publication, feedback report). Carpe diem!
I find horses (and donkeys) difficult subjects to shoot.
Their bodies are too long, easy to fail if not sharp at the right points.
Waiting for horses galloping in the wild or for a wide angle, I get (small) satisfactions by cropping tiny pieces of horses. Click and zoom to enjoy their hairiness.

Gent under the snow provided a wonderful playground to shoot magic environments with my D800. Click to zoom on the huge post picture made for the occasion. Visit Gent .. also in Winter!
Wedding pictures or wedding movies? None of them! Choose Artborghi animated pictures instead.
Did you ever show your wedding movie to your friends? Probably not, unless you had a real movie director as best man, nobody could survive a real-time, one-cut wedding movie. Not even you… Did you ever show your wedding pictures to your friends? Probably just a few… nobody could stand hundreds of pictures and hours of vision.
What is the Artborghi wedding reportage choice? An animated, full hi-resolution full story made out of the finest pictures, added with a pleasurable high quality music background … and less than 10 minutes to share with your friends online and on any digital device wherever they are. Share the true joy of your best day in the best way: go for Artborghi animated pictures!
Let’s say you had a wonderful day on the snow, though without too much sunlight. Most colours in your pictures look like 70s’ toilet paper (pale blue, pale green, pale brown and so on). Pity, you could have had so beautiful shape/contrast silhouette with those black trees, people and white snow background.
It is time to open your photo retouch software and pimp your snow day:
– convert to
– choose maximum whites
– enhance the contrast with blacks
– level blacks and whites up
In this way you get real black and white pictures and not boring shadows of grey. Dare with dark blacks and white whites the more you can and let the atmosphere you enjoyed pop out of your art!
We enjoy shooting smart, off-path pictures at wedding events. Both religious and civil ceremonies, summer and winter occasions, open air and indoor. In addition to the must-shoot situations like bride parade, marriage kiss, bouquet throwing and family panorama, we like fixing those details that make each ceremony unique.
We mainly work with fast fixed lenses or short teles, thus to avoid artificial light support and save the natural beauty of such important day. Digital photo retouch might be still applied to portraits or landscape backgrounds. Not only main ceremonies: we like to document also pre- and after- wedding events.
Give a look to the wedding page of Artborghi and give us some feedback …
