Carlos Longarela, web programmer by profession and amateur photographer, studied image and sound in the mid-eighties and spent many hours in the darkroom. In 2006, he created the online magazine DNG Photo Magazine to give photographers from all over the world the opportunity to publish and showcase their work to the world. DNG Photo Magazine has been published every month since that first issue in 2006 and is currently on its 175th issue.
Great photography is a combination of technique and sensations, and not necessarily in a 50/50 split. Excellent photographic skills and transmitting a feeling to the viewer- this is a combination that only happens within a millisecond in the photographer's eye... a good photographer must be able to freeze that moment and translate it into what we call photography. Action sports moments happen in a millisecond and can't be repeated.
The best tip that I’ve received, is to study many techniques, basics, light principles, practise, practise, practise, and start practising again when you get tired.
