My Camera was Stolen

That’s the title of my most common dream:  My camera was stolen.  If you’re not someone who can remember their dreams this paragraph can just be skipped.  I remember dreams in vivid detail.  Sometimes when I dream I’m certain that the events of that dream actually happened.  To the point that I start talking about […]

How to Review Photo Equipment

One of my biggest irritations (and I know that many of you feel the same way) is when you share some of your photographs and people say “You must have a great camera” and while a great camera helps it’s not a magic wand. Having said that good equipment doesn’t hurt. What makes a good […]

Renting Camera Equipment

I’m in the market for a Digital SLR, what should I buy?   THAT is the #1 most frequently asked question these days.  Everyone wants to know.  WHAT SHOULD I BUY?  No really, what should I buy.  Don’t hold back.  Just tell me. TELL ME.  Here’s the thing about getting started with Digital Photography you […]

Inspiration Board Tuesday: Michael Warf

Michael (of Michael Warf Photography) left me a comment a few weeks ago and like all of the comments we get here I try to reply personally and I check out the site they provided and when I clicked through to Michael’s site I was inspired.  Pure. Simple.  Inspired.   I highly recommend adding his […]

SD Cards

If you’re using a digital camera then you’re familiar with the SD cards that are out there today.  The selection is really something else, during one trip to staples I counted over 12 brands and about 85 different cards.  I was overwhelmed to say the least.  I searched online and through about twenty different sites […]

Continuous Shoot Advantages

Do you shoot in Continuous Shoot mode?  It’s a setting on your digital camera that I highly recommend you check out.  I usually shoot in this mode so I get at least one good photo from a moment that can not be recreated.  When I was starting out that’s precisely what I’d get – one […]

Inspiration Board Tuesday: K.C. Bailey

Trish over at The Fur Girls tipped me off to K.C. Bailey and her work with animals.  INCREDIBLE.  I owe Trish a huge Thank You because not only is this photographer amazing but her presentation of her work is inspiring and her motivation is just good for the soul.   She features a few of […]

Photographers in the News: A passion revisited

I’m starting to really love these posts about Photographers in the News, I’ve read some really interesting pieces because of this weekly bit and this weeks reminded me that starting again is always an option and being a new year, I thought it was poignant.  It’s about a retired professor Alan Rubin.  He had a career, […]
