For those of you who love light painting, this could be really up your alley. There are lots of cheap led wands out there, but that's the problem. They're cheap. I have to rebuy the 10 dollar ones every year or so, and the batteries crap out quickly too. Recently I saw this super cool... Continue Reading →

When I was in grad school, I saw a bunch of undergrad junior or senior year photo students in a panic. Suddenly they had to create their own work...and they didn't know what to do.

While this does allow them to understand better what they're using, there is the other side benefit, that maybe they'll come up with the most amazing idea that they can patent and...

One problem beginning photographers often have is they like to delete things. Often. They delete from the camera, then delete more later. I think it's a horrible habit, for a lot of different reasons, mostly being that people delete the wrong things... When I started off, there WAS no digital. It was film, and you... Continue Reading →
I think this is certainly food for thought. I'm not sure what I think...I've been photographing since 1987 (yikes!) so I've hit that 20 year mark. I'm not sure that this (20 yr mark) is always true, because I feel like I had a crash course with a lot of these issues and ideas in... Continue Reading →
