A new type of camera is on the market! More versatile than a point-and-shoot and much smaller than a digital SLR, Compact System Cameras are blazing a trail in photo technology.
The magic of a digital SLR camera is all in the lens. From wide angle to telephoto, different lenses can give you a radically new perspective, and spectacularly gorgeous images.
I am an avid amateur photographer who has investigated the capabilities of my kit lens. I love it, particularly at its widest angle.

Bryan sold me my DSLR three years ago, and has patiently answered questions whenever I need information for this blog.
It was a quiet morning when I went into the store. Bryan agreed to show me a variety of lenses that would fit my particular camera (I have a Nikon D5000).

Photo editing gets such a bad rap: you smooth out a few dimples on a supermodel, and the media throws a hissy fit.
The photo editing I am talking about, however, is not the type that makes you look younger, slimmer, and dimple-free. Photo-editing programs are digital darkrooms, where you can tweak the different elements of a photo to make it look its best.
Since getting bit by the photo-editing bug, I edit every single photo I keep. It takes just a few minutes, but the transformation is well worth it. READ MORE

You may have a beautiful DSLR camera with fancy lenses and a big skookum tripod, but if you’re like me, you take most of your pictures with your phone. Unfortunately, many smartphone photos look like smartphone photos—grainy, badly lit, not something you can print out and put on your wall.
