Photography has really opened my eyes to the world. Along the way I have learned or practiced a few things. If I think they might be helpful, I've written them up here. However, you will find that technique - while important - is not as critical as being in the right place at the right time. To capture the perfect Moment of Light.

Current techniques:

  • Moments of Light
    The theme for this entire site: Moments of Light. What makes a moment? What makes it memorable? Read here for some ideas.
  • Morning Glow
    Morning and Evening light present some of the best Moments of Light of the entire day. Why? It's physics!
  • Sunny 16 Rule
    What happens when your camera meter breaks? Or maybe you just forgot to pack that extra set of batteries? (I only made that mistake once.) Here's a tip if you can set your meter manually.
  • Why use a Tripod?
    To get good images using the Hyperfocal technique, you have to use a tripod. Want to get pictures where moving water blends together? Tripod. Want to have a chance at getting an awesome sunrise image? Yup, tripod once again.

  • Composition Tips
    Composition is more art than science. Still, there are a few rules to live by. And how can you know when to break the rules if you don't know what they are? We intend for this to be a series of articles, starting sometime in the fall.
  • Hyperfocal Distance
    One of our favorite techniques involves using those special markings on our lenses to get the complete "near to far" focus in our images. This article will teach you how to do the same thing.
