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 […]

Another Year Older, And …

… hopefully wiser. But, who’s to say, really? I don’t think it’s an accident that my birthday fell on a Monday this year, because, I’ll tell you, it’s felt a little bit like a year of Mondays! Still, I’ve survived another lap around the Sun, and that’s something to celebrate, especially considering how close I’ve […]

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 […]

It’s My Birthday

Yeah, it’s my birthday again. I’ve survived another lap around the Sun, mostly in spite of myself and due to the grace of God.  I almost didn’t bother with a birthday post, because I mostly think of my birthday as just another day, but, it’s sort of gotten to be a tradition with me to […]

Apollo Archive

I love space. Recently, thanks to the Martian, there’s been a lot of attention on NASA and space exploration.  Frankly, I think there should be more attention paid to the incredible work that NASA does and a larger portion of our National budget should be spent on what they do. As a photographer, I admire […]

Art History – Photography Style

Browse classic photographic artists and be inspired. Or, just waste time. Whichever suits you, it doesn’t matter to me, unless you’re wasting time at my office. And, really, even then I don’t care as long as you’re not wasting my time.  In any case, browsing photography is one of my favorite ways to kill a […]

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, […]

How One Photographer Got Rich

His best investment was his studio. No, seriously, Jay Maisel bought a 6-storey, 35,000-square-foot, 72-room building at 190 Bowery in Manhattan for $102,000 in 1966 and it was the best investment he could have made. Why? Because he sold it late last year for $55 million. Not a bad profit. Personally, I think his setup […]

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 […]
