Inspiration

As I mentioned yesterday I’m getting more and more interested in Children’s Photography.  I’ve been reading new books about it and checking out a ton of different photographers works and blogs to try to identify shots that I like, styles that I gravitate towards and areas that I need to improve on technically to get […]

You’ve got to get down.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of doing an outdoor shoot with my very favorite model – my daughter.  We went outside and I had a big blanket and I basically scooted Lexi around this blanket for twenty minutes while trying to persuade her that grass is not food.  A friend of mine was showing me […]

Photography in the News: Make me a memory

News on photography was a little light this morning but one topic that everyone is talking about is making what was considered old and outdated new again.  Finding the thrill that you get when you use film and you’re waiting for your photos to be developed.  Do you remember your first camera?  What was it? […]

White Balance 101 continued…

We started this conversation on White Balance and now it’s time to pick it back up.  Here’s where we left off – I shared this photo that has a series of photos at difference White Balances: Now a couple of you very observant readers pointed out that my custom white balance was a little on […]

Photographers in the News: Professional Associations

In checking out the news for photography I found it to be a little light this week and then I found this gem of an article about how to find a professional wedding photographer.  I love these kinds of articles because it tells me what I need to think about as I’m working on business […]

Displaying Photographs in Your Home

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 […]

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 […]
