Infrared photography is one of those art forms that looks more difficult than it actually is. Infrared photos can be captured with the assistance of a lens filter such as the Hoya RM72 (plus a tripod) or with a DSLR that has been modified to capture infrared light. Most of the images you see here [...]
As photographers, we’re inspired by other photographers and even artists. We can’t help but look at, and even analyze, other photographer’s works. One popular place that’s like window shopping for photographs is Flickr. It’s a great place to share your own work and to comment on other photographer’s images. But, most importantly to be inspired.

This is the second post in our ‘start your photography career’ series. Last time, we covered photographer’s compensation and pay rates. Now I want to take some time to discuss the real challenge: getting that first client. I got started in the photography business because a good friend of mine, a sponsored athlete at the [...]
Did you purchase the new iPad when it came out? The new iPad boasts the best screen in the biz, with up to four times the pixel density of ordinary screens. That means you get amazingly crisp photos and details you probably haven’t noticed before. With the Retina Display, the new iPad is the perfect [...]
[opinion] Instagram is a popular photo sharing tool on the web, and Facebook just bought it for $1 Billion. This an unprecedented move for Facebook. They’ve never made such a purchase, and they may never do it again. What intrigues me more than anything is that Instagram is nothing more than a simple photography tool. [...]

You might not even know it when it happens. Suddenly, and without warning, you’re no longer as interested in photography as you once were. What’s going on? Have you lost the love? Hardly. You’re just experiencing shooter’s block, and it’s completely normal. I’ve gone through several bouts of it myself, and I’ve learned a few [...]
You may have noticed, while browsing the web for photos, that some of the photos you see have a transparent signature in the bottom corner. Watermarks like these help professional photographers to keep their work away from the prying mouses and keyboards of the web. They help deter people who will take those photos and [...]
There are more ways to share information today than there has been in the history of mankind. As a photographer, your options are practically limitless. You can hop on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Myspace, Photobucket, and plenty of others. They all allow you to upload your favorite photos and share them with your friends. So much [...]
If you are like me, you love taking as many digital photos as you can. You go out to shoot, fill up your SD card, and then pull a few more cards out of your pouch before continuing on. By now, you probably have at least a few gigabytes of digital photos on your hard [...]
I’ve long been a fan of Picnik – a free online image editing program. In some great news today, Picnik has been announced as the long-awaited Flickr photo editing software.
