A little bit of history describing how the various standard image aspect ratios came into use and how these have translated to the dimensions of modern sensors on DSLRs. - Mark H from Bookmarklet

"Regardless of what he uses, he uses it to its fullest potential. If you’ve seen The Shawnshank Redemption, No Country for Old Men, The Assassination of Jesse James, Skyfall or even How to Train Your Dragon, you’ve seen his work. The guy’s got a resume, and it’s a wonder that none of his work has placed him an oscar yet. Here’s how a few of his most iconic shots were done" - Mark H from Bookmarklet

Get your stars right! A tool for exposure time estimation to avoid star-trailing effects.
"One of the most important variables in long exposure night photography is exposure time! Why? Exposure time defines the overall amount of light that will reach the sensor of your camera, making the starry summer sky visible in your photos. In principle, the longer you expose your photo, the higher the level of detail of the stars and the landscape features." - Mark H from Bookmarklet

at the end, I bought a Canon PowerShot SX260HS. Both the price and the megapixel-resolution are lower than other cameras I had selected (I was going to buy a Panasonic Lumix) and what got me convinced was to use the "Comparometer" here http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP... - by comparing actual pictures I could see that Canon PowerShot SX260HS makes better pictures, slightly lower resolution notwithstanding - Opensource Obscure

"In this tutorial, we’ll take that lens off the camera and do some freelensing, also known as lens whacking. By unmounting the lens, you can create tilt-shift effects and introduce great light leaks. With this guide and a little practice, you’ll be creating dreamy images in no time." - vicster: full-bodied from Bookmarklet

"I recently had the chance to shoot some stills and time-lapse from the City Center in Las Vegas. To make shooting through the double glass windows easier we used Lenskirts. The LENSKIRT is a portable, flexible hood which you attach to the end of your camera lens. It allows you to shoot pictures / video through glass without internal environmental reflections such as yourself, room lights, camera flashes, light leak from under a door. . This makes it the ideal tool for shooting time-lapse or video from behind glass. It was designed by cinematographer Frank Glencairn and is sold by LetusDirect." - vicster: full-bodied from Bookmarklet
