Honestly I don’t know how I can introduce Patrick. Patrick for me is more than just a photographer I admire. In fact, for the past couple of year, Patrick has been for me a friend and an inspiration.
I met Patrick on Photosig and I was so amazed by his portfolio that I emailed him. Patrick’s reaction was much more than just a polite thanks, he took the time to chat with me and help me out many times by looking at my pictures and commenting on them.
If at a personal level Patrick is great his work is nothing less than wonderful. Although I have never seen a picture he took that was not landscape, he has a unique way of composition that, I think I could recognize his pictures just by looking at it. Any place through his lens would look just WOW.
Of course I have prepared a collection of his best photos however to see more of his work make sure to visit DiFrusciaPhotography.com
A very quick note for those planning to buy the new Canon EOS 450D. The English manual is now available from Canon website.

I don’t own a Nikon D300 but I am sure many of you do or are thinking of buying one.
I stumbled today on a wonderful thread at DPReview full of resources that will help anyone still struggling with the D300 or about to buy one.
I found this compilation really informative and thought it might interest you so here it is
I have been thinking of writing a guide about how to hold your DSLR but a quick search and a recent thread on DPReview revealed to me that there are out there much more than what I can write, so instead I have made for you a special list of the best articles I found.
Proper holding a SLR camera can make the difference between a sharp image and a blurry one, it can also keep fresh after hours of shooting or tired with arm and back pains after a short moment. No matter how old or new you are in photography I do not think it would be a waste of time to read an article or two of the ones I am about to present you. You might be surprised how easy we can pick up a bad habit.
When I asked you “how many filters do you have?” I was pretty sure the majority will fall in the “3 to 4″ range but how wrong I was !
What is interesting is the repartition of votes, if 40% of photographers have only 1 or 2 filters 35% have 5 or more and only 11% have none.
I was also surprised to read in the comments that many have filters but don’t even acutally use them
