Creative Composition by Harold Davis

I've had this book for almost a month now and am blow away with all of the tips that are included.  "Photographic technique can only get you so far.  Technique by itself-without passion or vision-is shallow and meaningless.  Cameras don't take pictures, people do."This is the first paragraph from the first chapter.

Apps for Photography

Recently we went over timeanddate.com and it lunar calendar.  It might be great for the studio, but maybe not so much in the field.  I just finished going through the book Capturing Light and in the beginning of the book the author discussed the app Helios for iphone.  That does me no good since my...

No dice for Full Moon

This is the best I could do shooting through the low clouds we had last night.  The good news is last night is not going to be the last full moon.  I have a lunar calendar now hanging in my studio.  I have also noticed that not too many weather people give nightly forecasts like...
