VEDAVOO - 12 Days for the Holidays

So, it's not typical that I slide another entry in on the same day that I've already posted on T.F.M. but Scott Hunter of Vedavoo tipped me off earlier today that he was kicking off the 12 Days for the Holidays promotion.  I figured that it was worth a share to put this on everyone's radar. For the next dozen days, Vedavoo will be offering one choice piece of gear at a 20% discount and along the way they will be releasing some new (yet unseen) gear as well.  There is one "top secret" piece that ...

An Hour With Sarah Meister

Curator Sarah Meister Fred M. suggested this, in the comments, and I enjoyed it (I'm not quite all the way through it, but almost). It's on Slate's "Working" podcast, and it's called "How Does a Museum Curator Do Her job? Meet Sarah Meister, a curator in MoMA’s department of photography." Two bits (I couldn't quote because the format makes it too hard): she notes that the pictures on your phone or your computer are images, but that a photograph is a physical object like a print on paper, that ...

4 Essential Photography Tips For Non-Beginners

Do you recall the point in your photography journey when you no longer felt like a beginner? People will have different ways of assessing their own development and determining what it is that qualifies them for non-beginner status and everyone will reach that point at different times. What’s interesting, though, is that non-beginner status can be perceived as the land of the forgotten for some photographers.

Sick Saturday (Music Notes)

Well, that was fun. Our fundraiser print sale was a big success, and both Peter and I are pleased and grateful and convey our thanks to everyone. All three photographs sold well, "Havana" the best. I'm going to take the day off, for one reason because I say I always take Saturdays off, even though I seldom do, and another being that I'm sick as a dog. (And lazy as a dog, and want a dog's life, and don't want to work like a dog. Why do we pick on dogs like that in our expressions?) I have an i...

4 Ways To Upgrade Your Photography Without Upgrading Your Gear

Photography presents numerous challenges and frustrations to all those who take the craft seriously — and by taking it “seriously” I’m not referring exclusively to people who get paid for their work, but to anyone who cares enough about their creative output to consistently put forth the time and effort required to elevate their work. This compulsion for steady improvement is perhaps supreme among the many challenges a photographer faces. Hurdles like difficult clients and unfavorable working...

Brexit voters are real…

In the last few days I’ve been having a few Brexit discussions on Facebook, after a childhood friend posted a pro-Brexit stance. I approached it in the softest, most respectful way I could, and got pretty respectful responses back. It’s made me think. Not to change my Remain position, but to actually respect the pro-Brexiters. 2 and a half years ago, the Leave vote came as a shock. I, amongst many, couldn’t believe it. ‘You want to do what to us? But why?’ WHY? No good answers ever came, as far ...
