Hey readers! Been a while but I wanted to share this review of the new MeFoto tripods that my friend and fellow photographer, Will Crockett of DiscoverMirrorless.com. Seen the new small, light, low cost (and cute colors!) travel tripods that fit inside your camera bag? Do they meet up to ShootSmarter expectations? You decide if [...]

Hey friends, I just wanted to post a quick reminder that the introductory webinar series “I Love Photography but I Hate my Photographs” starts this Monday, September 24. There is still plenty of time to sign up! I am billing it as a photography class for non-photographers and is just $40 for the entire 4 week [...]

Shortly after having a conversation about why galleries charge high commissions, I read this post and it answers the question far more eloquently than I could have. So enjoy the [...]
