Just recently, my husband (and pro photographer) Brian Matiash, was in Mount Rainier National Park doing a little bit of shooting with Matt Kloskowski and the KelbyOne crew. He had an unfortunate interaction with a very rude, pompous, and arrogant photographer and wrote about it on his blog. It’s also getting a lot of attention over on Google+ and Facebook, […]

I’m sure we’ve all seen awful photos posted online and wondered what the photographer was thinking when they decided to share it. Sure, we all have to start somewhere, but no […]

One of our friends here at Photofocus, ThinkTank Photo, recently sent me a bag to review: the CityWalker 10 in blue. Because I had recently purchased the Fuji X-T1 camera, I am on the prowl for the “perfect” bag to carry around on a daily basis. I thought that the CityWalker 10 would be a worthy competitor, […]
