My blog

On this site, you will find my photography blog, which is unashamedly ego-centric. It is for people like me: passionate amateurs and beginning professionals who know the basics and want to apply them fully. Go directly to my blog.

It is for busy photographers concerned with both the results they achieve and their efficiency in achieving them.

I promise to keep it practical. I’ll offer tips, techniques, and tutorials. I will include theory only when I have proven to myself that it translated directly into better photographs.

I also promise that no more then 10% of this blog will be about Photoshop and other computer tools.
I will strive to make my advice concise, credible, and clear.

I’m still learning photography and expect to do so for the rest of my life. I’ll share what I have learned and tested.
