“Another fabulous week in the world of photography and Toad Hollow Photography has been busy compiling a list of great links to tutorials, photography and interesting blogs to share.   We sincerely hope you enjoy viewing these great sites as much at the Toad did in bringing this list to you.” on Lightstalking

Here’s a sample


Photography Tutorial – Black and White conversion using Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2 – a thorough and complete piece shares tips and tricks on how to process imagery using Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2 product set.

Behind the scene: Godiva liquor splash shot – photography master Alex Koloskov takes us back stage to an incredible photo shoot.  His desire to share his knowledge with all who are interested really shows in his wonderful work, and if you are interested in this style of photography there is something to be learned and enjoyed in this feature for everyone.


Learning to See (Part 2) – last weeks incredible series of images and accompanying post were followed up this week by a truly wonderful piece.  Tom Dinning shares his wonderful perspective of the world with us, both through his lens as well as his wonderful use of prose.  If you read one blog post this week, this should definitely be it.

A real life “Spring Beauty” – John Mead is not just a truly top drawer photographer, but he is also a science teacher in Texas and has a different perspective to share on his subjects.  This pair of images are incredible as beautiful pictures in their own right, and are accompanied by some fabulous anecdotal details.

Say Hello To My Little Toy – sometimes an image is compelling because of what is hidden, and the subject becomes much more dramatic.  This great picture from the studio of Jose Vazquez delivers a great example of this with a really great perspective.

Feelin’ Grey – a black and white panorama with one of the best reflections I’ve seen this week produces a strong and dramatic image.  Jason Hines captured this fabulous image at Tempe Town Lake.

Wild Hare – this will delight and amaze everyone, a truly special photograph!  Aaron Barlow captures a shot of a wild hare, and the reflection in it’s eye sets this picture in it’s own category, well worth the time to visit.

Under the Bridge – a jaw-droppingly awesome shot from the studio of Chris DeAngelis taken under the iconic Brooklyn Bridge with the moon producing a light-flare… it will surely delight and amaze everyone!

Oh, No… I’m Getting Happy Feet! – absolutely stunning in a slightly macabre way, this incredible photo from the studio of Rob Hanson is perfectly composed and processed.  Taken in the attic of a building that is more than 250 years old, Rob has perfectly captured the great details and textures.

Black and White and Read All Over – a picture that just keeps on giving the more time you spend with it.  I love clever use of language, and when the picture adds a further thousand words you’ve got a masterpiece straight from the studio of Mark Garbowski.
