Hello Again

Hello Again It's been far too long since we've had any updates, far too long. I can't say why we abandoned you but let's say that life happened. My comrades and I burned out on photography while we all went through some major changes. I can't get into their lives but...

Letting Go

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...

Photographers: Take Notice

As a photographer, you are not an artist. As a photographer, you are merely documenting life and other peoples works of art. As a photographer, you do not create art, you do not create anything, you simply take pictures of what others have created, including God's...

Photography: For Money or Love?

Photography. Why did you start taking photos? What do you hope to get from the act of being a "photographer"? The first question is easy to answer for most of us. You may have bought a camera to capture your child's first step. It could have been because you needed to...

100 Strangers

At some point most photographers begin to feel confined to the comfort zone they have created for themselves. They find a style, be it the way the process, light, or even compose. They gain that ability to do decent work each week, without having to spend countless time thinking of how to go about getting the final results they want. But at some point this all can get to be a bit boring for someone who’s creative. One grows tired of doing the same thing day after day, even if the viewers of that photographer’s work may see it as ingenious, creative, etc.

Artistic Influences

Last week I talked about inspiration, creating and growing, but how do you know where you are taking that growth?  Is there a clear cut path you want to follow? Are you just meandering around waiting to see what happens? Trying to turn this pastime into a side job? ...

Fifth Sense

Experiencing the world in this way had a profound impact on the way I see. It taught me to both look and actively process what I see, which almost always makes me do a slow double take and pick up new layers of imagery and meaning. It has made me more inclined to find the story in the picture.

White Noise

At what point do we lay down the books, close out the websites, and turn off the tutorial DVDs? As photographers we strive each week to learn more about our art in order to grow and push boundaries.  We read the latest inspirational book, buy a new lens every so...
