Should be interesting.  I’ll be dropping off 10 prints for a landmark building that’s being refurbished; and if the architects like them there could be some more work from that project. But I’ll also have a chance to do some shooting in and around the building and I’ve been thinking of trying something that probably […]

Photography Categories

Yes, I have been trying to categorize the different types of photography that are popular and not so popular.

Which is exactly what he said as he looked into my soul for a split second.  He didn’t think I had taken his picture, since no flash went off, and I didn’t seem to make any movements.  And I told him that “I got it” and he continued on his way. (f1.4 / 1/45th of […]
