Just Say No to “P”

Would you buy a Ferrari and just leave it on cruise control the whole time?  Would you get cable and just watch the local network channels?  Doesn’t make sense, does it?  If you own a DSLR and leave it on Program all the time- that is essentially what you are doing.  You are stripping it of most of its power.  I’d like to make a quick argument for...

Examining Sargent’s “Daughters of Edward Darley Boit”

As this blog evolves, I thought it would be fun to occasionally jump outside of the photography world for a minute and look around the larger world of art.  I wanted to take a look at a few of my favorite paintings and thought of no better place to start than with one of my favorite paintings by John Singer Sargent.  I first encountered this image while visiting...
