    What Does an LED Ring Light Do for Photography

    What Does an LED Ring Light Do for Photography

    It's hard to take a decent close-up photo without tinkering with lighting in a skillful way. Erratic lighting casts harsh shadows, distorts contours, and increases glare. Fortunately, there's no shortage of tools that help manipulate lighting.

    My New Little Polaroid Camera

    My New Little Polaroid Camera

    So, I don't know if you remember the original Polaroid camera from back in the day? (See below). I was excited when I found they had brought it back and made it cuter than ever! As you can see from the original, it wasn't that exciting to look at, but it was an exciting new technology (for that time), whereas you could take a picture and have it appear right away, and after about a minute, it developed on its own and you were able to have your pictures right away! But Polaroid went away and we didn't see it for years.

Despite constantly taking photos on our phones and digital cameras, when do we ever make the time to appreciate them?

    Camera Backpacks

    Camera Backpacks

    Hi there! If you're an active photographer like I am, a backpack is an absolute must for your gear. From hiking, to riding around wedding venues in golf carts, I have found that any other form of bag is just not worth it. When my husband got his dream ONA messenger bag for almost $400, my first thoughts were, "Oh, cute." I definitely couldn't imagine him hiking around Yosemite in a messenger bag. Lolz.
