Photog Class 6: Learning and Growing

Now that you have been introduced to the fundamentals of photography you can begin the iterative process of learning and growing.  That means taking photographs, reviewing, editing and publishing, in one form or another. The process of achieving competence at anything...

Aiming and Goals

The more I live the more convinced I am that you generally get what you are pointing at. Knowing what you want and where you want to go, is one of the best predictors of what you will actually achieve.  So it kinda matters what you point at-- what your goals are. But...

Sunday in Spring

Today was a good day.  We went to church.  The big kids were both volunteering (yeah, they are pretty amazing!), but all I had to do was text them from bed that they should make sure to go with each other, and the case was solved.  The rest of us showed up just before...

Human Habitat

Humans are builders.  Some animals like prairie dogs and beavers build things, and of course, birds build nests. But humans create very sophisticated habitat for themselves.  The urban habitat with skyscrapers and subways is complex at a level that makes the whole...

Ancient and Future Wind

What does it mean that the animation of weather induced air currents has preceded my existence by at least six thousand years, and is very likely to succeed my earthly journey by at least as many millennia?  We think of winds and weather as temporary and changeable,...

Is “Like-Minded Friend” an Oxymoron?

So maybe that title looks like nonsense to you.  Maybe you think "of course, you can have like-minded friends, that's what draws people together, shared values!" And that's right, I can pretty much agree with that statement. So is that the end of the story?  Well, not...

The Difficult That I Do Not Think Is Work

Today on YouTube I was listening to Mark Manson on the Impact Theory vlog with Tom Bilyue.  You can listen to the interview/podcast here although I need to give a language alert.  Mark's book is named "The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F$%*" so swearing comes up a few...

Travel Camera

We're planning a trip, and I'm trying to decide between a few different main camera options.  Here are the options on the table: Take my Sony a7iii and three zoom lenses including my large 70-200 f2.8.  I'm worried that the 70-200 is too big and heavy. Take my Sony...

Photog Class 5: The Moment

A photograph is a visual moment frozen in time. Whether you have captured the sunlight shining through a rolling breaker wave, or a fleeting expression on a mother's face at a wedding there is an enduring and captivating magic in the ability of the camera to freeze...

68 GB

I attended and photographed the the UI commencement for the first time today. I've lived in Moscow, Idaho since 1996 minus 2000-2001 and I have never attended a commencement at UI.  I brought home about 68 GB of photos.  And commensurate with that number I was...
