I can not begin to tell you how many times I... continue reading

(shot on a family trip to a nearby park)Of course the more you learn and practice the better you will get, but don't let any lack of experience to stop you.

It gives you a lot of options and the closer you zoom in the more of a unique world you find.... continue reading
The best thing about being married to a spouse that cooks, is the ability to snap candid food stocks without seriously investing in it (I elaborate more about it in the original post bellow).

We have also started a tradition of special meals with close friends of ours, which allow for more special dishes. Even in a restaurant in Rome under artificial light, I was able to... continue reading

It's not the mass sales of mine, but occasionally, a buyer finds my panoramas viable for purchase.2)The progress in technology makes it easier to shoot and a lot simpler to compose. Software like Picasa orMicrosoft ICE are available for free and produce (especially ICE) professional grade results.... continue reading
