I, like some other photographers, look into their bags one day and notice: Wow! I’ve got a lot of ‘stuff’. For me, it’s lenses. I think that I have 6 now: Tamron 11-18mm Nikon 18-70mm Tamron 90mm Macro Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 Tamron 200-500mm Lensbaby 2.0 Since I’m using Lightroom now, it’s a simple matter and look at lens use distribution. I found this quite by accident. I clicked on the meta data for one of the lenses and up pops…

If you visit here frequently, you’ll know that my topics are all over the map. The topics are concerned with “Life”, in all facets, not just photography. Mind you, photography is my passion, but I love to write and talk. All the while, rest assured, I’m out there taking pictures most every day, including today. I still love to take my camera for a walk in the woods. I’m was trying out my Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro lens. I’ve never…

What does one have to do with the other? Creativity and judgment? I read a number of spiritual based books and, therefore, they cause me to think a bit differently sometimes.

Sure, my camera got a little bit wet and I had to keep wiping off the lens, but it was great fun. I spent about an hour out in the elements. Funny, there was no one else around in the park!

I’m not a big fan of labels. I suppose that they are necessary to give definition, especially when you are trying to find something specific. For example, if you need a doctor because you have some awful foot pain, then probably it would be good to go see a podiatrist, or you are having a pain in your … then a proctologist might be in order! 🙂 More specifically, in photography, you might want to go see a portrait photographer…

Don’t you just hate this little phrase: His/her work is derivative of _____. Well, as many photos as there are and as many different ways as they’ve been taken, it would seem that mostly everyone has a little bit of derivation in them, wouldn’t you think? I like to look at other photographer’s works, to see what they are doing and how. If I like it, I might try it a time or two and then integrate it into my…
