Crossroads Update!

Just a quick note to tell you that the Crossroads Photography Workshops that I am doing through Santa Fe Workshops are filling up.

What is Your One Word?

I have doing some thinking lately, mostly of the odd, obtuse kind and have come up with an interesting photography question- What one word best describes your photography? This is a more nuanced question then first appears. It requires you to actually think (you all know how I love to get photographers to think!) about the […]

Let’s Play- What’s the Problem?

Here is how we play What’s the Problem? I show you a picture and you get to tell me what the problem is with that image. In other words- you get to tell me how I screwed up! Now isn’t this going to be fun?!? Here is the first picture: This is an easy one. […]
