Hello there!

One of the convenient functions of Expono, is that you can search photos by tags.

It’s great when you are to take photos of something in particular, and looking for inspiration. For instance, if you’re snapping pics at a wedding, why not check out the popular “photo” tag and see how others have done it. You can also share photos with other by using tags when uploading your own photos, provided that you want to share them with anyone and mark them as “public”.

You find the tag function here!

Do you wonder how to go about HDR photography?

This article gives a introduction, and highlights these steps:

  • Set your ISO to its lowest setting
  • Use aperture priority mode
  • Set exposure bracketing (AEB) to take three frames at two EV increments, or five at one EV increments.
  • Use a tripod if at all possible

Recent research show that today’s children will feature in almost 1,000 online photos by the time they reach age five.

Are you mindful of where and with whom you share photos of your kids online?

With Expono, it’s easy to share only with people you trust, and we will never use your photos for commercial purposes.

Hi dear blog friends!

We’re kicking of a new photo contest as of today!

This time, the rules are a bit changed to make it better and with an even better prize.

All you need to do to enter is upload a photo you’ve taken yourself at Expono.com and tag it with contest summer15.

What you can win? The digital SLR camera Nikon D3200 if your contribution is the jury’s favorite, or an Expono plus account for a full year if your photo gets the most favorite marks or the most views.

This time, you don’t need to upload EXIF data in order to enter. This, since we want to make it easier for you to enter. However, we will disqualify any images where there are implications of them being taken by anyone else than the contestant. This, in order to try to keep the contest fair, to eliminate cheating, and make it a competition truly based on photo skills.

Enter before August 31, the winners will be announced the following week.
