Free Creative Business Course

Seems like everyone is looking for a “side hustle” these days. Personally, I’ve never felt very comfortable in a real entrepreneurial role, but even I have gone hunting for a side business on occasion, trying to get a leg up. When I was in college, I wrote. I’d always had the idea that I might […]

Fly Through the International Space Station

For me, living aboard a space station is about the most fantastical thing imaginable. I truly admire the brave people who risk their lives by exploring space.  I really and truly believe that humankind’s future is in space and off planet Earth.  It’s not that I’m a pessimist, because I’m not.  I just believe, as […]

Free Public Domain Photography Books

You know how I like free. I started out the year talking big about stepping up my photography, but, honestly, between a new job, my wife’s business, and trying to refinance our house to get a better mortgage rate before they go up, I just haven’t done that. I still intend to, eventually. Honest. In […]

Pretty Pictures

So, I’m not quite done with the photography links. Seriously, though, I’m working on some other things to share. I promise. Still, I have this one last thing from last month to share with you. We all like to look at beautiful things, right? And free things are great, too, aren’t they? What about free […]

Photographic Software Tips

The fourth post in this month’s themed series of useful photography information focuses on the big two photographic software programs; Photoshop and Lightroom. So, while the information is free, the software isn’t. Personally, I try to get as much right in the camera as I can. Photography is my hobby and I work on computers […]

Building a Great Minimalist Studio

Another resource for photographers. I think one of the reasons I initially was interested in photography was because I was shy, but wanted to meet people. I figured that a photographer would meet beautiful people, which seemed like a great idea in my teens and twenties.  Actually, it’s still not a bad idea, except I’m […]

Artistic Constraints

Any good artist knows that constraints make better art. My experience has been that limitations force us to make better work and make it easier for us to create. It’s been true since those creative writing assignments I used to get in Grade School, where we were assigned a title and had to write a […]

Daily Photography

I encourage you to indulge in your hobby daily. My favorite hobby is photography. I’ve wanted to learn photography since I was in high school, but, until the birth of digital photography, it always felt beyond my reach.  I got interested again because, about ten years ago, someone asked me what I liked to do […]

Aerial View

One more aerial view thing next week and I’ll have an actual theme for the month. Once upon a time, I used to watch a lot of the food and restaurant related reality television that seemed to run on the more obscure cable channels.  One of my favorites was Bar Rescue.  And, one of the […]

Wallpaper From Above

Or, better living through data mining satellite imagery. Seriously. I’m not a big fan of the goofy, “Web 2.0”, startup-app naming convention that drops vowels out of words to make domain names, but, in this case, I’m going to make an exception.  Mostly because it’s free, but also cool, in spite of the name.  Besides, […]
