Ever wondered how a camera shutter works? It’s not as obvious as you think but knowledge is power and power means increased control for the photographer. Most modern cameras give you a choice: electronic or mechanical but how do you know which one you want? The electronic option has its advantages but also its limitations. Likewise, the mechanical shutter but it’s further complicated by the fact that there is more than one sort. And what happens when you use flash?

Each shutter type has its specific applications but you need to understand the differences if you are going to get the results you want. With the aid of clear diagrams and simple explanation, Andrew will tell you everything you need to know about shutters and exactly why you need to know it.

Introducing Floop Photography with Martijn Brouns

Print your own photo with depth.
Be among the first to have your own 3D picture printed!

Floop Photography is such a cool new company. They can convert and print any photo from a 2D photo to an optical 3D image. With their new automated technology, they calculate the original depth in a photo and via a specially designed print process, print this depth on very detailed specialised lens material. When you then look at your photo it shows real depth. Martijn says “To me it represents the future of photography. A new art form is born, but most of all the true potential of any photo (old or new) has been unlocked being ‘ realistic picture enabled by DEPTH”
