Wasting Time

Wasting Time

August 18, 2011

“Wasting time is not a waste.” Seth Godin wrote the above on his blog last week. He went on to say, “Wasting time poorly is a sin, because not only are you forgoing the productivity, generosity and art that comes from work, but you're also giving up the downtime, experimentation and joy that comes from wasting time.” I’ve been wasting a lot of time, been wasting time for more than a year in fact. The worst part of it all, I’ve been wasting it poorly not doing anything to further my photography. How do you waste time, ... read more

Spinning Wheels

August 10, 2011

It's been a year since any of us have posted.  A year in which we have all taken less photos, posted even fewer, and have questioned what the camera means to us. There seems to be a natural progression, a step by step process, that many photographers take.  The awe one has when first taking up photography, the gathering of information to learn about specific things, the interacting with others on sites such as Flickr.  You find a niche, you develop it, you begin to get more particular, you acquire more gear, and you wake one ... read more

A Fresh Perspective

A Fresh Perspective

August 24, 2010

PHOTOGRAPHERS... Do you talk to your therapist about your hatred of overdone HDR shots? Are you kept up at night by bokeh overload? What about that deep rooted urge to punch those strobist geeks square in the jaw? If you're conflicted by any of these issues, or by any other deep rooted hatred of your fellow photographers, I have the solution... Get Over Yourself! When it comes to photography I hear people complaining about all sorts of things, hell, I complain a good deal myself. Someone is always trash talking the bokeh groups, shitting on the pictures of ... read more

Letting Go – Part Two

Letting Go – Part Two

August 17, 2010

In the first part of this series I wrote about having fun, and that if you are not having fun what's the point of even picking up that camera that's there beside you. Today, boredom rears it's ugly head. Lately I'm going through the motions.  I'll pick up the camera, go stand in front of a wall, and bang out a photo.  It's too hot here in Mississippi to go outside, so I'm confined to this small space trying to eke out another turd to upload to Flickr. And let me interject, if you're wanting to read a ... read more

The Amazing Misadventures of a So-Called Wedding Photographer

The Amazing Misadventures of a So-Called Wedding Photographer

July 7, 2010

"I have shot four weddings, I have shot four weddings."  As I sat down to type up this blog that you may or may not be reading, I kept telling myself that.  Me, a "photographer" with just two and a half years of experience under my belt has provided four couples with photos that they will keep for a lifetime...or until the divorce.  You too can provide couples with lasting memories!  All for one special low price, we have prepared the premiere  wedding photography course for you, the novice photographer! All joking aside, this stuff is ... read more

Letting Go

Letting Go

June 11, 2010

At some point this stopped being fun. Not just this blog, but the entire photographic process. Before I go any further, think about that first sentence for a minute. A hobby that became turned into passion isn't fun anymore. It had gotten tedious and trying. Like any relationship that grows stagnant, it was time to let it go. I abandoned my 365 for the tenth time, I stopped posting at the blog, and I stopped leaving comments for my contacts at Flickr.  Every article I read about photography was about being creative ... read more

Who we are …

Untrained and unpretentious, but neither uncommitted nor unprofessional. We each have a story and a perspective of our own. Essentially, each of us have experienced a defining episode of connection with a camera. And since that bond was formed we started living for the good light, the inimitable expression, the scene that stirs something within us, we exist inside of moments.
