Photography Cheat Sheets, Again

It’s been a while since I shared any photography resources here, so I’m going to do that now. So, in just a couple of weeks a good friend of mine is headed out to a Pacific island for an expedition for work.  Yes, I do have cool friends who do cool things.  In any case, […]

Free eBooks for Photographers

Well, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love free and I love photography! This week, I’ve got both for you! Actually, I can’t believe I haven’t shared this collection of Twenty-Three Free Photography eBooks before!  I know LightStalking has shared them before, but, well, apparently I haven’t passed that all on […]

Photography Link Grab Bag

Since I start my new day job this coming Monday, I’m slacking a little and just sharing some kind of random links about basic photographic technique. One of the things you see a lot of photographers do, especially if they want to “go pro” and shoot portraits, is something called “seamless paper”.  Basically, it’s a […]

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 […]

Camera Porn

By now, dear readers, you both should know that I’m “into” photography. Now, I’m not really into collecting cameras, though, I will admit that I have several.  And, I only shoot digital, because, frankly, film is kind of a hassle these days and I just never really had the time, patience or money all at […]

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 […]

Simulated Camera

What good is a virtual camera? Funny you should ask. So, my regular readers, both of you, know that I love photography.  But, at the same time, you’ll also notice that I haven’t been posting as many photos as I used to post.  There are a lot of reasons for that, but one, and the […]

Perspective Change

One of the many things I love about photography is its ability to shift my perspective. But, sometimes, I need to adjust the perspective of my photographs! I take a lot of different kinds of photos.  Mostly, I take candid shots of people and animals, but I also take photos of my friends’ art as […]

Creativity Exercises

Specifically, Creativity Exercises for Photographers. One of my “problems”, it seems these days, is “inspiration”.  I know, it’s kind of a classic “champagne problem”, as a friend of mine calls them.  I work a day job that pays for, well, pretty much my entire life.  Digital photography is just a hobby of mine.  For that […]

Ever lost a camera? And, by “lost”, I mean, has your camera ever been stolen?  Well, Gadget Trak can help.  And, now we know that it’s not an empty claim! I’ve mentioned other camera tackers before, but Gadget Trak’s stolen camera finder has been verified by a photographer who used it to recover his camera. […]
