Unfortunately, Google giveth and Google taketh away, and the site has become very unpopular and unsuccessful in Google search over the course of the past year. After much…

Note: I’m not longer updating this website, Digital Photography How To. However, I’ve started a new blog, Rockin’ Photogs, about digital photography. You’ll find a similar article there comparing the Canon t3i / 600D and the Canon t4i / 650D. If you’re in the market for an entry level digital…

Looking for help comparing Canon dSLR cameras? Check out this guide comparing the Canon t3i vs t4i and this newer guide comparing the Canon t5i vs t4i. You’re best bet is to either buy the Canon t4i with the 18 Title sound familiar? It should. It’s basically last week’s post… but now, it’s even better! It’s…

With Thanksgiving behind us and December ahead, it’s that time of year again: Christmas shopping. Every year, I get that same question from my mother. “What do you want for Christmas?” And usually, the answer is the same. I shrug and say, “Stuff.” Eventually I put together some kind of…

Well, it took a while, but the New Jersey Department of Revenue finally got back to me. I e-mailed them back in April to get some clarification regarding when photographers should charge sales tax (). My general problem was this. The publication on sales and use tax listed photographic services…

It’s spring break, and that means…. spring cleaning! I’ve been meaning to do some housekeeping around here for a while now, and now that I’ve gotten around to starting I realize it was long overdue. I redesigned the theme, adjusted the ads, and fixed a few things earlier this year,…

For the past few months, I’ve been doing a lot of reading and research regarding tax laws and photography. Taking pictures and designing comp cards started out as a hobby, but our NJ photography studio has begun to pick up steam and it was time to transition to being a…

Besides photo prints, photographers may need to print all kinds of other things – business cards, comp cards, greeting cards, specialty products, etc. Some of these specialty products are available through professional print labs (i.e. MPix Pro, which I love), but this tends to be expensive. Digital print shops, on…

About Digital Photography How To

Digital Photography How To is intended to be a guide to people learning how to use their digital SLR cameras. Three years ago, I had never picked up a camera; now, I produce a yearbook every year and I moonlight as a professional photographer.

I write this website to share what I've learned in that time. The topics will range from truly beginners topics, to tutorials for post processing, to resources for yearbook and graphic design, to thoughts on transitioning from a hobbyist to a professional. Keep up to date by subscribing to the RSS feed.
