Know the picture

Bienvenue connaître la photo

Want to learn more about photography? I offer you in this blog simple, educational articles, without addressing too technical aspects. I am looking for information for you that I am happy to share. There is not a teacher and students, just enthusiasts who exchange their knowledge.



Photo-passions is our parent company . This site brought together 8 different sections. We have decided to separate them into 2. Photo-passions retains the academic part (history, big names, news, etc.). Photo practices can be found in Photo for Dummies


Bienvenue le matériel

  • Choose a device and its accessories.

Don’t worry, I wouldn’t advise you to take your photos with this style of camera. But I think it has a certain cachet!

Our beautiful photos

It is indeed a photograph. It is composed like a painting, hence the wink with the brush and the palette.

  • Know the rules of composition of an image.
  • Control the light.

  • Know how to retouch your images…
