What to Do With The Photographs You’ve Created: 3 Ideas to Get You Started

Whether you’ve been photographing for a few months or years, one thing is certain. Your images are unique. They are from your perspective, your view on the subject. Your work is personal. The journey as an artist continues to evolve. Over the course of time, friends, family and acquaintances enjoy seeing your work. Since we live in the digital, social media and web-based world, sharing your work starts here versus just sending via an email or printing for the family album. We’ve all been effectively conditioned to seek, learn and view electronically from our computers and mobile devices. The days of using cloth and leather bound albums are no longer the norm.

Need Advice on Architecture

I would love some advice on shooting architecture. I try to get interesting angles that don’t fight with the lines of the building(s) whenever possible. These were taken mid day in Boston.

New member to Light Stalking

I used to shoot film back in the eighties and set my camera aside when job, house and kids came along. What pulled me back into photography in the digital age was my cell phone. I was capturing such nicely exposed shoots with just my phone, that I became curious as to what I could […]
