Flash Diffusers

Flash is a tricky thing – in low natural light situations you need it and yet it often changes the exposure of your picture negatively.  That’s where a diffuser can come in handy.  I’ve been checking out these diffusers for my regular on-camera flash as I already have this one for my external flash.  They both are under $20.00 and […]

Photography in the News: Groundhogs

Today is Groundhogs Day.  Not exactly a holiday – it doesn’t get me out of work and unfortunately it’s not going to make the gray of winter move along faster.  In a few minutes some well dressed man with a top hat will reach his hand into the hole of a Groundhog pull him out […]

Nikon D300 – My week to review

Thanks to the very fantastic ProPhotoRental for accommodating my ever shifting schedule while I reviewed the Nikon D300.  I mentioned that my reviews will not be the traditional compare and contrast so if you would like to know more about my experience take it to the comments.   If you’re looking for the traditional I checked out […]

When Reflections Work.

Working with reflections so that they add to the photo is a difficult thing to do.  There are a whole series of ways that reflections do not work.  For example when you take a reflection of someone and in the reflection you can see up the persons nose….like some senior pictures that I’ve seen…like one […]

Displaying Photographs in Your Home

I’m famous for taking loads of pictures and having white walls.  Not exactly something I want to be famous for so I’ve made it a priority in 2009 to have prints made of my favorites and to hang them and to change out the photos every six months (or when I look at them and […]

Photo Challenges and Flickr

After my last post about Leading Lines I received a lot of e-mails about my list of photo challenges and about our Flickr Group so lets answer some questions: 1. How many items are on your list?  It grows every single day and I have 243 items on the list now.  It started out with […]

Leading Lines

I’ve been bit by the equipment bug there is no doubt about it but a comment from a fantastic reader (and a great commenter) got me thinking about something more important then equipment.  A photographer to me is anyone with a perspective and a lens.  That lens can be on a Pentax, Samsung, Nikon, Canon […]

Inspiration Tuesday: Her Space My Space His Space

A few months ago I ran across this blog and the photography always inspires me it’s called Her Space My Space His Space: Here’s the premise of their blog: Anyone can play along with HSMSHS. Simply check the word of the day, make a photo to match the word and post a link to your […]

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 […]

Photographer in the News: Paul Tumason

Another Monday is upon us, it’s the second in 2009 and with it business owners are struggling with these hard economic times.  Photographers are no different of course and I ran across this article about photographer Paul Tumason and his search for a new studio after a steep rent increase.  While that’s what the story was […]
