How to Photograph Cars For Amazing Shots

As with other genres of photography, photographing cars has its own set of “rules”. This doesn’t mean that you need to follow all of them strictly–breaking the rules will sometimes get you the best results. However, if you’re going to break the rules at the right time and in the right way, then you first need […]


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 […]


Finding and Photographing the Magnificent Snowy Owl

The Magnificent Snowy Owl. Tundra’s Ghost. The Ghost Owl. These are a few of the names that are used interchangeably when referring to one of the most beautiful birds in the world.

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. As I have enjoyed the 85mm and 50mm 1.8G primes, the wider angle perspective would appear to complement these two primes. This lens needed to capture a clear and clean wide angle image that is a ‘what you see is […]

Mark like make picture

My love of photography developed over the course of a few years, driven by seeing my own “work.” That means, at first, seeing the oft-blurry slides I shot as a 12-year-old boy visiting the Smithsonian with my father, using his Zeiss Ikon Contessa (which I still have).

Photo of the Week (April 28, 2015)

A recent upload really caught my eye, probably because I have been playing with a lot of macro stuff lately, but I thought it would make a great POTW. Member @bayouboy managed to capture a classic macro that actually reminded me a lot of Thomas Shahan’s work. Shots like these are elegantly simple, but surprisingly […]


More Molly

Sorry about all the Molly pics, but she is my most consistent model, requires no release paperwork and I only have to pay her a biscuit and belly rub. Plus, @Falx claims to like her! Have at it. Canon D70, ISO 160, f1.8, 50mm 1/320
