Top Photographers when they visualize the Photo they are about to make? Ever wonder? You should.




Better yet: you should Ask these Top Photographers.

 l Each week, Dozens of Photo Pursuit Events Take Place Near Your Home: Outdoor group shooting trips, studio workshops, photography gallery visits, Portrait shots…

  This is what Photo Pursuit does for You…


Saturday morning. 11:30am. You just logged onto your Photo Pursuit Account. 21 photography events are taking place within a 25 minutes drive from Mamaroneck, NYC, your home.

You zero in on the event “Wild Birds in Motion”. The 31 photographers taking part to that event have great biographies and experience.

And anyway, you never figured out how to properly deal with motion with your Nikon D700. You take this opportunity to learn.

2:30pm. What a nice group! You feel great asking questions and your new experienced friends show you how it’s done: setting up the tripod, getting the correct settings for your new Nikon D700…

As you watch experienced photographers in action, you finally understand the magic of photography. The set up. Composition. The artist’s View Point.

 What are Photo Pursuit Members Saying?                   



“(…) Everything in my photography improved. When I attend the photo pursuit events, I ask LOTS of questions and everyone is always very kind with me. They show me the correct settings for my Canon EOS 50D and give me lots of tips on framing and “seeing the shot”. The events (I attended 8 in the last 3 months!) are lots of fun and it is great to meet so many local talented photographers.” -

-Melissa J.


“Hey guys: Keep up the good work! (…) Yesterday I went to a Black & White workshop organized by one of the members (…) a real artist. His Photography is art. I learned more with him in 3 hours than in the 6 books I studies on the topic of B&W photography! He changed my vision of things.”-

- Michael R.

    Photo Pursuit is a Leading Organizer    
        of Photo Contests and Competitions.

     2 contests are announced at the  
         start of Every Month.

     Entries are analyzed, ranked and   
         commented before the 20th of the 
         month. there are prizes to be won         

    To win the prizes, you must be   
&         different, original and imaginative.

  This is what Photo Pursuit does for You…


October 3rd, 7pm. As every 3rd of the month, you are notified about the new Photo Pursuit contest of the month. For October, the theme is “Modern Ruins”. You have until October 20th to submit your photo.

You visualize your Photo. You want to portray the ravages of time. The fragility of human construction. Some contrast with nature would also be nice.

And then it comes to your mind: Grossinger’s Resort, NY Catskill Mountains. You discovered this modern ruin a few months ago - and it surprised you.


Saturday October 6th, 2pm. You set up your tripod. You adjust the settings to what your Private Tutor on Photo Pursuit had advised for your Nikon D700 and landscape photography: White Balance set to “shade” to make the image warmer. Contrast: Vivid. Saturation: +3. Sharpening: +5. You shoot:
Grossinger’s Resort, NY Catskill Mountains


Saturday October 6th, 7pm. Back home. After a few adjustments on Photoshop, you submit your picture on Photo Pursuit for the October contest on “Modern ruins” You cross fingers. Your submission to the September contest on “Capitalism” ranked 5th and received 25 comments. You were very close to winning the prize and contest. .


Thursday October 11th, 4pm. You are ranked #2! This means that your Photo will automatically be submitted to the 150 Photography galleries in the USA and abroad that compose the Photo Pursuit network – of course, under your full copyrights, should they decide to feature you as a resident artist/photographer.

You also received 12 very interesting constructive criticisms and the editor wrote this review on your photo:





          There is a nice use of leading lines and patterns to lead your eye  
        through the image.

           I would have knelt down to take the photo and raised the horizon line   
         to the upper third of the image.

            Use a slower shutter speed, such as 1/2 - 1 second, to make the clouds 
          more blurry and look more silky smooth.

           The smooth clouds will contrast better with the rough foreground and
         textures in the image.

           Lower the saturation so the blue hues do not stand out so much. Keep
         the colors muted.

           Good use of perspective with the trees.

           Having so much negative and positive space shows the depth of the
          image and makes the viewer more involved with the image.

           Using a wide angle lens lets you enhance the depth of the image and
          increase perspective distortion with the foreground and background

           Next time take the image with a vertical orientation while getting lower to
         the ground. This will increase the visual effect of the converging lines and
         make the image seem to go deeper.

           Add some more contrast in the foreground and the subject. There are
         no dark blacks. The shadows of the trees should be darker to have more   
         visual appeal.

           Good job using a great depth of field.

           I would change it to black and white and give it an infrared filter. The
         clouds and trees will make the image more interesting.

“I am hooked! I was part of the top 25 finalists in the last contest of the month “Organized Chaos” and, as promised, you automatically submitted my photo to your partner photography galleries. I am actually having discussions now. I never expected this. I am now eagerly waiting for the next Photo Pursuit contest announced in 1 week time. SO MUCH FUN! Members are extremely talented…and very nice people. I love getting feedback from them.”-

Really, You have never been fully happy with the way you frame your subjects.

Friday, 5pm.You decide to start with the basics.

You log onto your Photo Pursuit account and select a Video Course on “FRAMING YOUR SUBJECT” within the 35 Online Photography Courses that you have Unlimited Access to.
You Watch (Click on the Picture below to Start the Video):

As you watch experienced photographers in action, you finally understand the magic of photography. The set up. Composition. The artist’s View Point.

Friday, 5:10pm. You feel more comfortable with Framing but still have additional questions.

You remember that you have FREE Unlimited Access to over 54 Affiliated Specialist Professors on Photo Pursuit’s Photography Workshops.

You decide to join the workshop called “Framing Subjects”.

After reviewing additional videos, presentations and Q&As, you ask your question and get clear answers from the specialized photographer of Photo Pursuit:






How Can I Change the Camera’s Focus and Lock Its Focus Point?

When in autofocus mode, your camera’s focus point is by default located on the center part of the frame.

A more convenient option mainly available in DSLR cameras is pressing the shoot button halfway down until you see the focus lamp from the viewfinder signaling where the focus point of the shot is currently located. If unable to automatically focus on your desire element on frame, you can first compose your shot with the main subject on the center part of the frame so it can more easily become the focus of the shot. Press and hold the shoot button halfway down, then reorient the camera to your desire composition, and finally, fully press down the shoot button to take the picture. If this process doesn’t work, you can always remedy the situation with the use of the camera’s option for manual changing and locking of the focus point.

Friday, 7:10pm. All right, time to shoot. Aperture Value mode. White balance set. ISO 100. F/11. Tripod.

You decide to make a photo of your house at sunset:

Not too bad. You got the theory from the Course. The validation on the Workshop.

Now, you need Guidance to ensure that you correctly Mastered the Framing on your Photo.

You decide to take advantage of a Unique feature that Photo Pursuit offers to all members: their Very Own Professional Private Photography Tutor. Each month, Free of charge, 2 of your Photos are analyzed in Depth.

Your tutor has been super helpful over the last 10 months and really got your photography to the next level. You are eager to hear about his opinion on this shot.

4 hours later, you get his Feedback.
     Hi Tim. Thanks for your photo. Here are my comments. Implement 
     these and I look forward to reviewing your next shots:

This photograph was taken at the wrong angle. You need to get closer
            to the building and look up along the wall or get higher and be on the
            same level as the roof.

         The tree in the bottom right hand corner takes away from the subject. The
               tree is too big and takes up too much of the image for it not being the

         The placement and the colour of the tree contrast too much with the
               subject. The green is too vibrant with the rest of the colour cast in the
               image. I would crop the tree out.
            The exposure for the shadows was not bright enough. There isn't
                enough detail in the shadow areas to get a good HDR image. You need to
                add more exposures to open up the shadows more.

             I like the choice of the pink-orange colour cast over the entire image.

             The texture of the subject lends itself to be a good HDR image.

             There is no focal point in the photograph, what is the subject?  
                 Professional Photography Tutor.

              The overall exposure of the HDR image is too dark.
             The use of leading lines with the roof edges is a good way to create eye

             Place the subject using the rule of thirds.

             Take 7 photographs with a separation of 1 stop each to create an HDR
                 image, only changing your shutter speed.
              Never put the horizon line in the center of the photograph. Either show
                 more sky or more building.
