I’m a formal student of photography and probably will be a life-long student of it, and I’m faced with constant struggles in class.

For me, I use it to share my life. Outings with friends, which are typically photography-related, […]

I recently read a blog post from someone who casually mentioned that HDR (High Dynamic Range photography) was a “fad”, and they were hoping it would eventually go away. Now this was, of course, a very opinionated statement, but it was not really one that was embellished with photos or even an explanation as to […]

It’s rare that I step up on my soap box about gear… after all to each their own.  But this one is just a pet peeve as it causes so many potential problems. The lens hood doesn’t point this way when the lens is out of your camera bag! Hoods are reversed when packing the […]
