Photography As A Way Of Meditation?

Meditation means awareness. It could be an awareness of your breath or it could be an awareness of the sound of the train that you are riding on your way to work. As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to your mind, you are meditating effectively. Anything you do with awareness [...]


What Makes A Professional Photographer?

Is it having a good eye? No
Is it having a good camera? No.
Is it having excellent skills? No again.
While all of the above are helpful, what makes a photographer a professional is their attitude toward their work.
A photographer who treats photography as a vocation, and not as an avocation, is a professional.
When your attitude shifts so [...]

Your Photographs Framed

Do you have some photographs that you’d like to frame and display?
Whether you do the work of printing and framing yourself, or have someone do the work for you, there’s a cost of time and money. Multiply the cost  of time and money by the number of photographs that you want to frame and display [...]


The Worth of Your Work, aka “Content”, In The Digital Age.

The hypocrisy and greed of these corporations is astounding.


Taking Responsibility For Your Photography

You are ultimately responsible for your photography, but you can choose to be totally responsible for your photograph or partially responsible for your photograph.
If you work your camera in an automatic exposure mode you are responsible for working your camera in auto exposure mode.
In automatic exposure mode you have chosen to have your camera pick your [...]


Photographing At Night

There’s not really any difference, in terms of photography, between photographing during the day or photographing at night.
You either have more light to work with or less light to work with. The bottom line is that you need to be able to evaluate what you’ve got to work with in terms of light and adjust your exposure as you see [...]

The Most Valuable Thing I Own As A Professional Photographer

Although I own equipment that allows me to do my job as a photographer the most valuable thing that I own by far is


Camera Metering Patterns

In order to meter effectively, and to get the tonality and visual information that we want in our images, It’s important to understand how our camera metering patterns work.


Lenses and Digital Camera Sensors

When it comes to digital camera sensors and the lens you put on your camera there are different scenarios that are possible and those different scenarios have different visual outcomes.

As a photographer you can use these outcomes as part of your composition.


Disappointment

It’s part of life.
You’ll disappoint yourself,you’ll disappoint others and others will disappoint you.
This applies to your photography, too.
From where I see things you have three choices.

Continue to live with disappointment.
We can try to please everyone, including yourself, and attempt to exceed their expectations, but it ain’t gonna’ work. As Bill Cosby said, “I don’t know the [...]

Light

It’s what you really work with. Your camera records light. Without light you have nothing to photograph. As a photographer, you use your camera to record light.
As a photographer you should begin to see everything as a light source.
To be  more specific you should learn to observe light sources that illuminate, or transmit light, and light sources that reflect [...]


The Craft Of Photography Is Product Neutral

Photography is a craft. Your camera is a product.
You use the product to work in the craft.
While it’s important to learn how to use your camera it’s more important to learn craft.
You can apply craft to any camera that you use once you learn how the camera does what you need it to do. This [...]

Taking Versus Making

When you work your camera in an automatic exposure mode you are taking  pictures.
In an automatic exposure mode your camera picks an aperture, a shutter speed and an ISO for you, so you TAKE what  you get as a photograph.
When you work your camera in fully manual exposure mode you are making  pictures.
In fully manual [...]

It’s Impossible

It’s impossible  for any of us to be the one and only best photographer in the world.
Lee Friedlander, Helen Levitt, Harry Callahan, Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier Bresson, Duane Michaels, Robert Frank, Amy Arbus; these are  some of the best  photographers in the world, but none of them are THE best.
What they are the best at is [...]
