Back To School! But Wait, We Home-School. We Never Stopped Going To School

Being homeschooled, my 7 siblings and I always joked around that there is no such thing as summer break for homeschoolers. It’s true, at least it was for us. We didn’t mind though. We learned so much more then what one would typically learn at school. Everything was a learning experience. On top of being homeschooled, we grew up on …

How to Capture Fast Moving Subjects With a Manual Focus Lens

As you probably know by now, I only use manual focus lenses. I do this for two reasons. One is because they’re WAY cheaper than autofocus lenses. And two is because I like to have full control of the lens and what I’m focusing on.  I have nothing against autofocus lenses at all. This is just how I roll. 😉 …

In A Time Of Auto Everything, I Prefer To Shoot In Manual. Here’s Why

When I first started to use a nice camera that my wife bought me, I was very disappointed when the photos didn’t turn out how I thought they would.

Take a Look From Behind the Photographer and See What He Sees

When I first started my photography, one of the things I struggled with was how to find good locations or backgrounds for my photos.

What Camera and Lens Should I Get

What camera and lens should I get? I am asked this question almost daily. My short and simple answer for the camera (if you’re on a budget, and who isn’t?) is a camera that has an interchangeable lens and is in your price range.

How to Optimize Photos for Facebook in Lightroom and Photoshop

Have you over hared that you may need to optimize photos for Facebook? What does that even mean? And do you need to do it?

You upload it to Facebook knowing all of your friends will be paralyzed with astonishment by the amazing work of art you are about to bestow on them.
