Education is a never ending process in the world of photography.  Some choose to read photography books while others visit blogs.  There’s also forums, mentoring, and conventions but one of the most common ways to expand your knowledge is to take a workshop.  Some of our favorite threads in the forum is when someone finishes a workshop and shares the images they took during that time.  Always inspiring!  So, why not share some of those photos with you today?  We(…)

A lucky Google search led me to Shooting 101 and I signed up and registered on the spot. Up until that point I had been using my camera in program mode. While P mode does offer a(…)

My Photography Journey by Stacey Haslem
I can still remember the day when I got my first SLR camera. It was Christmas and I was thirteen. My dad sat down with me to explain the exposure triangle and I was hooked. I have always been more of numbers type of gal. This was my kind of art. My first pictures were of my sister riding her new bike. I took that camera with me everywhere including school sports where it got(…)
