Whether by plane, train, or automobile, who doesn’t love to travel?!  There’s a beauty in traveling and seeing a new part of this amazing world we live in.  Although I don’t travel much, looking at other’s travel photography always brings a smile to my face as there’s something special about seeing the world through someone else’s eyes.  This last month on the Clickin Moms forum, we asked members to share their favorite photo from their travels with us.  The talented(…)

7 things to know about press printed products

by Joanne Rojcewicz
As photographers, we print lots of items for our clients and ourselves. But when they are press printed products, rather than photo prints, the choices can be confusing and overwhelming. I thought I’d share with you some basic tips and things to be aware of when ordering anything from business cards and marketing flyers to holiday cards and birth announcements.

The most important thing to know is…YOUR PRINTED PIECE WILL NEVER LOOK EXACTLY LIKE IT DOES ON SCREEN. Don’t(…)

successful center compositions

By Adele Humphries
Are you a rule-follower?  I am.

I get anxious even bending the rules – social or actual.  So no-one is more surprised than me to see that I have embraced the dreaded center composition in my personal style.  I had always understood this to be a big photography no-no so I avoided it at all costs, believing it to be a lazy, unimaginative and visually less pleasing method of composition.

Then, last Christmas, my husband surprised me with a 35mm(…)

working around the clutter

by Narelle Bailey
Have you ever caught yourself thinking “I could make great images if only my home looked like it came right out of Pinterest”? I know I have.  There are times when I have felt like my favorite photographers (especially the lifestyle ones) must all have beautiful homes with high ceilings, great big windows with magnificent light everywhere.  Most of all they must have absolutely no mess or clutter.  How else can their photographs look so good?

I thought about(…)

more than a hobbyist

by Melissa Gibson
I am a mom and I am a photographer.  Since I am not a business owner, I am a considered a “hobbyist”.  However, I am not “just a hobbyist”.

I am an artist.

Even more than an artist?

I am a storyteller.

Seven months before my first girl was born, I was writing about her.  I wrote letters to her in her own journal.  Skipping by my old personal journal to now jot down notes about her life instead.  I remember putting(…)
