Catchlights 101

I used to take good pictures on accident.  Every once in a while I would really look at a portrait I had taken and think “something about this just makes it look really special”.  Upon learning what a Catchlight is I realized that a lot of the portraits I loved had Catchlights.   What is […]

Inspiration Board Tuesday: Jessica Claire

Spatial Relationships and Distortion

We all know that the main difference between a wide angle lens and a telephoto lens is the angle of view. Compared to a wide angle lens, telephoto lenses have a much smaller or tighter field of view which means that it can only capture a small part of a scene. Another difference between the […]

Photographers in the News: The subject is Farmers

Reading the news and watching the news are two entirely different experiences to me.  I don’t watch the news, it’s a bummer most of the time and the editorial spin on everything just makes me check to see if the sky really is falling out there.  But I love to read the news and I […]
