Ten Must Have Accessories

Circular Polarizer

Photographers love their gadgets and accessories, and no photographers bag would be complete without at least some sundry items. Some are more important than others though. Here are ten items that make my list of”must-have” items for your camera bag.…

Whiners in the Rear


Hi all! I know it’s been a while since I’ve done any posting. Truth be told, life has been keeping me very busy, but I’ve been quite active – even with my photography. For starters, as most of you know,…

New Family Member

It's with a certain bit of trepidation that I make this next announcement on the blog.  As you know, I have been somewhat blase for the last 9 months or so.  I think a good portion of my mental attitude is attributed to the loss of our beloved pet of a dozen years.  Her eulogy is here.

With the melancholy having been predominant, we've finally decided that this is not how Maggie would have wanted us to continue on, so we are going to welcome a new family member here soon.  A name has not been picked out yet (suggestions are welcome), but I do have a pic.  Here's our next family member!

Fox Red Lab

The next year or so will be challenging with accidents, yipping, chewing, and other traumas I am sure. But it really is time to step into a new chapter here.  It also likely means that this dog will be quite famous over the next 12 years as she will undoubtedly make several appearances here.  I'll try to keep things as photographically relevant as possible!

Hello all, I’ve been quiet for a while here, for a number of reasons.  First and foremost, I’ve been busy as life has been pushing me in new directions.  My move to Ohio, the new job, and other factors have…

Lightroom 5 Video Series: Soup to Nuts, Part 2

Continuing on, with announcing the "beta" or pre-release of my new video series on Lightroom 5, here is Part 2 - Installing Lightroom 5 on your computer. This is actually a 2 part video, because I wanted to treat the Windows installation differently from the Mac installation. Windows video is first, mac video is second:

Lightroom 5 Video Series: Soup to Nuts, Part 1

I know, it's been a while since I've been regularly active on writing and publishing content, but there has been a good deal in development.  In the interests of at least putting some of it out for initial thoughts, comments, feedback, etc., I'm happy to announce the first of several videos that will take you through Lightroom 5 from beginning to end.  This includes everything from download, to install, configuration, setting up your first library, importing an existing library, and much more.  Many thanks to the loyal readers who have hung in there waiting patiently for new content - more is coming, I promise!

For now though, here is my new Lightroom 5 Video Series, Soup To Nuts, Part 1: Installing Lightroom 5

So, comments, thoughts, suggestions, and additional topics for inclusion in the new Soup To Nuts series are now open! Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear from you!
