The Art of Portrait Photography

I’m obsessed with photography lately, mainly because I feel so stymied by it. It used to flow so much easier for me.  I had even gotten to the point that I could go a shoot anonymous portraits on the street or at a fair or carnival and be comfortable doing that.  But, lately, it’s been […]

Keine Zeit!

No time! That’s what I have today, “no time”.  No time to write yesterday morning and only barely a few more minutes today, but at least I’m giving it the old “college try” and throwing something vaguely new, if completely uninteresting up today.

Keep Track of Your Photography Gear

If you’re a hardcore photography enthusiast, you’ve probably already seen what I’m about to share. But, in case you haven’t seen it yet, I’m going to go ahead and share it again. Theft of camera gear is on the rise.  And, not just from tourists, either!  There have been several articles in the past couple […]
