Absolutely loved the photo blogging class! I've got my blog started and although I thought emails would be best for subscribers, I'm getting a lot of questions about how to subscribe via my rss feed! I would really love to attend another class about maintaining my blog.

Just a quick note to let you know that I’ve posted some new online classes. Check them out in the Classes section of this site. I’m moving to doing more online classes for a couple of reasons: people don’t have to commit an entire day to a class and, more importantly, since the classes all have assignments, it’s nice being able to give you a whole week to complete an assignment. So check them out.
Also, if you’ve ever had to make adjustments in post production, I now have an affiliate link for Topaz Labs. I have their software bundle and really like it. The noise reduction is outstanding. So, if you need software like that, be a pal and buy it through the link over on the right hand page. But, in the interest of full disclosure, Topaz Labs gave me a copy of their software to test and use. Still, I wouldn’t recommend anything that I didn’t like or trust with my work.
I’m leading some photography events in the next few weeks, so why not come out and shoot with us? You can see more details over on the meetup group. You do have to be a member to see the events, but it is free to join. We just require registration to help minimize the spam and autobots that we were getting.
Finally, look for some how-to posts in the near future. Between doing those, putting on events with the Meetup group, running the ShootHybrid.com site and the podcast, I am falling behind on blogging. My bad.
But watch for some cool stuff.
As those of you who know me, you know that I’ve recently jumped (hard) on the mirrorless camera bandwagon. There’s a reason; the advantages of the mirrorless camera far outweigh the advantages of the dSLR (see my previous post). Today’s post is actually from an email thread I was a part of today and Bill (the author) stated his view of the evolution from the dSLR camera to the mirrorless camera in a way that was far more eloquent than I could have stated.
So, today, I yield my blog to Bill. Continue reading
So, over the past several years, I’ve been asked about my own light tent. For those of you who know me, you know that I will spend good money on stuff that “matters” – like lenses, memory cards, tripods, etc. Stuff where owning the best you can afford matters. But there is another category that falls under the phrase “light don’t care.” Continue reading
A Remarkable Challenge for 2012
What does opening a bottle of wine, a photography vlog, my favorite food blog, and the word remarkable have in common?
Quite a bit, actually. Continue reading
Well, it’s a couple of days past Christmas now and, hopefully, you have gotten some new gear or even a new camera. Whether it was a gift from someone else or a gift to yourself, there comes a sense of renewed energy and interest when you get to play with new stuff.
I know, I know… we always talk about how a photographer should be able to shoot with anything and it’s not the equipment, but sometimes we need to get that new camera body or lens to renew our excitement and interest. Continue reading
I didn’t start out researching Monet or travel photography. Really, I didn’t. It’s strange, though, how a simple search for one piece of information reveals other things that sends your brain reeling into new directions. It’s unforeseen and, often, once the new thought grips you, you just can’t let it go. Continue reading
