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

I remember when I first picked up a wide angle lens to use. I hated it, absolutely hated it. It made everything look so small. 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.

They are not scientific; simply put, they are “man on the street with the camera” types of reviews; however…

I’m special I took quite a few photos while walking in what passes for winter around here. In fact, we had close to a foot of snow. This was the most snow that I’d seen since I’ve been living in Charlotte. However, out of all of the photos that I took, this was my favorite one. This one, I didn’t go looking for, per se. I didn’t have to think about it. For the most part, the day had been…
