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 […]

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 […]

Fireworks Photography

Seems like I end up posting about this every year. Almost like a tradition. For those of you outside the U.S., Monday is the day we celebrate our independence as a nation by barbecuing and carousing and having parades and, most of all, by firing fireworks. All across the country this weekend, there will be […]

5 Photo Exercises

Did you get a new camera at Christmas? If you did, maybe you’re still learning just how that camera works.  I know, when I got my first digital camera it took weeks of fiddling around to get comfortable with it.  Not only that, but, since I hadn’t really been a photographer in the first place, there […]

Printing Advice

Digital photographers almost never print their work, but they should. Why? Well, for one thing, while digital formats change, printed work stays the same pretty much forever.  Also, a nice print hangs on the wall a lot better than a digital image stored on a drive. On a personal note, I know I don’t print […]

Photography for the Fourth

That would be the Fourth of July, better known as Independence Day, which is tomorrow. For those of you outside the U.S., tomorrow is the day we celebrate our independence as a nation by barbecuing and having parades and, most of all, by firing fireworks.  And, oh my, there will be fireworks displays, both large […]

Trivial Pursuits

Well, trivia about one of my many pursuits, anyway. It’s been another one of those weeks, so I’m throwing something together at the last minute.  But, at least this is a fun one.  It was recycled recently on Facebook, but the original post is from last year about this time. I love trivia almost as […]

Essential Photoshop Skills for Photographers

I’m not entirely sure I agree with this list, actually. I tend to follow the dictum that, as photographers, we should strive to make a better photograph in the camera, not in the computer. However, the reality of the modern age is that Photoshop exists and, well, the people who use it will tend to […]

Lightroom Workflow

With Apple’s recent announcement that they’re letting Aperture die, without really replacing it, photographers of all kinds are looking toward Lightroom as their photographic management and processing tool. I, personally, have used Lightroom for years.  I can do most of the editing I would ever want to do faster and easier in Lightroom than I […]
