Street Photography

The buzz and excitement surrounding the discovery of Vivian Maier’s vast collection of photographs has generated a renewed interest in, and curiosity about, street photography. Street photography reveals a candid look at a city’s population, architecture, and events. It can also be used to deliver a personal, social, political, or environmental message.

Review: Kelby Training

A couple of weeks ago, I finally subscribed to Kelby Training. I say “finally” because I have been mulling over the purchase of this subscription, and an accompanying subscription to NAPP, for quite some time.

The Importance of Photo Projects

I cannot stress enough the role of photo projects in the honing of photography skills. Not only do photography projects give a boost to creativity, they also provide an opportunity to learn new techniques and improve upon the understanding of photographic concepts.

Plan Your Shots Ahead of Time

Often times we find ourselves just being wherever we are, taking advantage of what light is available, taking pictures of what sights are available.

The third annual Worldwide Photo Walk, organized by the ubiquitous Scott Kelby, kicks off on July 24th of this year. Last year, over 32,000 people in over 900 locations participated. There is no fee to participate, but signing up in time for the city of your choice before it’s full can be VERY tricky as […]

Here are some suggestions for using your photographic skills for charitable works. 1. Contact your local charities. Ask if they have a need for a photographer – they often […]

What Would You Do for the Shot?

I’ve seen some pictures out there that HAD to have put the photographer in a pretty precarious position in order to get the shot. I’ve seen cars rigged with all sorts of miscellaneous structural devices that place the camera outside of the car with the passenger holding a remote shutter release from the inside. I’ve […]
