Horribly Beautiful Nature

Nature is filled with creatures both terrible and beautiful. I love macro photography. Getting close to small animals and insects and seeing them in a totally new way and on a scale we don’t normally perceive them is something I love to both do and see. And, while I have to admit my skills are […]

Improve Your Photography This Year

Challenge yourself, one week at a time! This Christmas, I got an LED ring flash can also be used as a continuous ring-light. It’s something I’ve been wanting, but reluctant to buy for myself, because I haven’t been making time for photography the past couple of years. I love macro photography, as well as portraiture, […]

Free Stock

Regular readers know how I love free. Okay, look, I put this stuff out there week after week and I’m honestly not even sure that anyone ever reads this at all. I don’t know, maybe I just do it to keep the search engines happy, or maybe just out of habit. Worse, maybe I just […]

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 […]
