When It Comes To Improving YOUR Photography, MY Opinion Does Not Help

Getting an affirmation or criticism from someone who we may view as an authority is not going to help us to become better visual communicators, or find our own way as photographers.


Unoriginal And Lazy

If you made a copy of the Mona Lisa and added a mustache to it would you consider what you created a new piece of art?
Welcome to the world of appropriation art.
I’m happy that  appropriation artists are being sued by the creators of the original art.
Shepard Fairey and Richard Prince are a couple of the better known appropriation artists.
On a [...]


Are You Taking Pictures Or Making Pictures?

The words we choose are important and they can change your mind when it comes to your photography.

In Photography, There’s A Lot To Learn

In photography, theres a lot to learn.

The good news is that you don’t have to be a know-it-all.


Do Photography Critiques Help? It Depends.

You must look at your own photographs with a cool, critical eye and if the person giving the critique is more interested in your photography than their own, then you’ll leave with useful information on how to improve your photography.

Pen Is To Writer As Camera Is To Photographer

Although we’re working with a camera, we’re using the camera to record light much like a writer uses a pen to record their words.


Rules And Photography

Everybody seems to look for rules that will make their photography easier and better.

While rules may make your picture making easier, I don’t think rules make your photography better or help you to be a better photographer.

Wishing And Doing

Do you think about how great would be to be a better photographer, work in photography as your  career, to have your dreams come true?
Waiting for dreams and wishes to come true can’t be relied on. You can rely on your actions and your efforts.
You can spend time dreaming and wishing or you can spend time taking concrete actions and [...]

Getting The Most Out Of Your Photography Class

If you take a photography class, it’s not enough to simply put in your time during the class.
A good photography class will give you information related to the class topic, but to have what you learn in the class sink in you’ve got to apply what you learned to your work outside of class.
If the [...]


Can You Send Me Copies Of The Pictures?

I wouldn’t recommend that you send anyone copies of your work.
Instead, place them in an online gallery and direct people to view them there.
Make sure that the gallery requires some sort of  registration process for people who download your work so you can see who is using your pictures. I use a service called PhotoShelter
I use [...]


You Can Work Any Camera

What if you were to borrow someone’s camera because you didn’t bring your camera to an event.
Could you work the camera to make the photographs that you wanted?
You could if you had a good foundation in the basics of photography.
You would dig into the camera settings and change the settings to suit your way of [...]

Your Work As A Photographer Really Begins When…

Your work as a photographer really begins when your preoccupation with the camera ends and your observation and study of light is your primary interest.

Photography Is Hard Because It Is Easy

Photography is probably the easiest medium in which anyone can be competent.
Anyone can be a marginally capable photographer and produce a decent photograph.
The hard part of photography is developing a personal vision that is idiosyncratic.
The hard part of photography is separating yourself visually from the rest of the photographers who are making decent photographs.
Your photography has to become more than decent and has [...]
