10 Things I Learned from Jay Maisel

It’s finally September, and psychologically the end of summer. The triple-digit heat still holds Arizona in its grip, though, so I still spend my days inside, in air-conditioned comfort.

Contest: Single Flash Drama

Review – Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It

A couple of weeks ago I attended a Scott Kelby Training seminar called Light It Shoot It Retouch It Live. It was almost eight hours of very interesting, well presented information and demonstration about studio photography. Whether or not you’re interested in studio photography I highly recommend you attend this seminar if you possibly can. […]

EXIF Data – The Other Perspective

By Steve Russell Last Thursday my friend and business partner, Tiffany, posted the article My Take on Sharing EXIF data. If you haven’t read her article, I suggest that you read hers first so that you get the complete perspective. Frankly, I thought it was a great idea for an article but she included the […]
