OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about how to improve my photography, honestly. Most of the time that I even think about it is when I think of how much fun that I have doing it, or perhaps wondering where I’ll turn my camera the next time. Occasionally, I will think, though not often: How can I improve? What does improvement even mean? Or, what if I’m at the top of my game? What if this is as…

Enjoy your weekend and practice using your tripod. Advanced students may mount the camera and use a long cable release. Enough said!

I had visions of seeing these wide-open spaces portrayed elegantly with my new fangled lens. I got rid of that lens. The problem, of course, was the photographer, not the lens. After I learned how to use one, many years later, I always made sure to have one in my kit. For the last few…

I was standing, looking at the lake, enjoying the last rays of sun. I saw him come down the tree, to my right, circle around behind me, then stop. I wondered what would happen if I stood absolutely still, so I did. Eventually, he made a wide circle around my to my left, stopped and looked at me, came closer, and closer. As a matter of fact, he came so close that I thought that he might actually mistake me…
