  2. A life without photography

    by , 11-10-2008 at 11:58 AM
    Every so often, I go through a phase of wondering what my life would be like without photography. Without the giant sucking sound coming from my wallet that represents the hobby, what would I do with the money and the time freed up? I could take more vacations, go to more interesting places I haven't been to yet, I could get more work done around the house, heck, I could probably afford a bigger house!

    I get this feeling periodically when I get frustrated with my progress or lack ...
  3. Thrift Store Classic Camera Diary

  5. Smithsonian classes, part 2

    by , 10-30-2008 at 06:20 AM
    Interesting observation:

    In my night photography class, EVERYONE is shooting film. In my portrait class, all but myself and one other woman are shooting digital. I understand the desire on the part of the instructor to have folks shoot digital in the portrait class, for the instant feedback. What I find interesting about it though is the chimping that the students do that totally breaks up the workflow of the portrait session.
