This is Why You Should Be Taking Self-Portraits

Let me first make one thing perfectly clear: when I speak of self-portraiting, I do not refer to the “selfie.” “Selfies” and self-portraits are not interchangeable terms, nor do they measure up to the same level in photography. Now that we’ve got that over with, we can move on. Why Self-Portraits Can Help You Improve Your Photography […]


How Diffraction Can Affect Your Photos (And What to Do About It)

It is something many a landscape photographer will be aware of, but many others may not. Diffraction is an obscure effect but one we should all be know about. You might have noticed it without really understanding what it is, a slight but perceptible softening of the image quality when using small apertures. You might […]

How a 28mm 1.8G Prime Fits Into Your Photography

This past fall, I purchased Nikon’s 28mm 1.8G at the suggestion of another photographer friend.

Always wanting to learn more.
