Photography Success Without School

 
What I learned from a mentor that enabled me to go from an amateur photographer to a professional portrait photographer in very specific steps is something I like to pass on.

For one thing, my mentor taught me the Three Classic Elements to produce "...

Extreme Digital Photography: Beyond Point-and-shoot

 
When my old Olympus digital camera got broke while caving during a family camping trip, I had mixed feelings. For quite some time I had felt that the quality of some of my pictures was hampered by the limitations of that camera, but I did not look forward to spending the money on a new one.
