Hurricane Preparedness

Hurricane season started on Monday, June First. Are you ready? Here in Texas, hurricane season is kind of a big deal.  Or, at least, it is to this kid from the Heartland.  Of course, most of the time, we have plenty of time to prepare because you see these things coming from a long, long […]

Photography Blogs to Follow, Part Two

As implied last week, here are some more photography blogs to follow. I spend a fortune on camera gear.  I try not to, and lately, I haven’t had the spare cash, but it’s hard to resist the lure of that new, shiny bit of gear!  Thankfully, there’s a blog to help me with that; DIY […]

Photography Blogs to Follow, Part One

Yes, this implies at least a “Part Two”. Maybe even a part three.  We’ll see on that part, but at least two. I’ve been at my new job for five weeks now and, frankly, I’m so exhausted by the end of the day, I haven’t really had anything left over for hobbies.  In fact, I’ve […]

Fast Fiction

In this case, really fast. I’ll be honest, I’m not normally a huge fan of gimmicky flash fiction, but I do make exceptions. The basic idea is to write a story with the fewest number of words possible.  According to literary legend, Ernest Hemingway did it with just six words; “For Sale: Baby shoes, never […]

The Portable Strobist

Now, you can take David Hobby with you on the road! Okay, not really.  I mean, I suppose you can if you’re Joe McNally or somebody like that, but guys like me, and my faithful readers (both of you!), probably can’t afford to actually take the famous Strobist with us on a shoot.  (If you’re […]

Creative Lists

This is not a new idea. But, then, I remember hearing when I was in high school that there are no new ideas under the Sun, only new ways to implement them.  And, remember, every story you tell, is uniquely your own.  So, the age-old question about creative ideas, right?  Where do they come from?  […]

Photography 101 by Canon

Well, I’m back. Blogging, and writing in general, is like having a case of scabies; it’s a persistent itch that just will not go away! In any case, I’m safely married and my blushing bride is hard at work on her business, so I’m back at the blog and other writing projects.  Right now, I’m […]

Build-It-Yourself Camera

Sometimes, I think the only way to really understand a technology is to build it from scratch. I’m not sure if that’s really true, or what the folks who created the Bigshot camera had in mind either, but, I have to admit, their product looks like they agree with me. I usually try to avoid […]
