So yesterday was the big going away party that I’ve been planning for. I didn’t get around to building the photo booth (that’s on the agenda for this week), so instead we just took pictures throughout the party and printed them as the night went on with the Selphy CP800. The party was a blast,…

Posted some pictures from the prom over at my photography site. Group of my kids went to prom together, so we had the limo stop at Brookdale Park in Bloomfield, NJ on the way up. The flower garden there is awesome, and the roses made a great backdrop for this…

Worked a retirement party last month, and I just posted some of the pictures on the photography site. The party was hosted at Bella Italia in Orange, NJ in honor of two of our favorite teachers retiring. It was a great, Sunday afternoon event, and everyone had a great time….

This past weekend, I worked a job for a Campus alumni – the 1st Annual Red Carpet Single Mothers Appreciation Day. Took a lot of great pictures, celebrated a lot of fabulous single mothers, handed out some business cards, and networked with some potential partners for our photography studio. The…

I was working on the website for our photography studio yesterday, and I figured I should cross-post some of the information on our recent gigs here. Back in March, Olinda and I covered the 2011 William Paterson Fashion Show. It was a collab between HASA (Haitian American Students Association) and…

Photo by: Henry. I looked in the Recent Uploads section of Flickr, and this picture of a soldier moving with his rifle at the ready was number two or three on the page. It’s not a technically perfect shot, but there are a some cool elements here and I really…

Photo by: Sziga. I found this simple studio portrait in the “Portraits” tag on Flickr. It’s a good execution of a simple two-light scheme. If you click through to the photo page, there’s a description of the lights. But, you should have a decent idea based on the catch-lights in…

Photo by: henrikj. Found this in the Recent Interesting section of Flickr. It’s such an awesome scenic shot, I couldn’t pass it up. I love the composition, with the body of water in the lower left flowing out into the ocean. And there’s just a hint of a sky and…

Photo by: Viele Geischter. This photo of some football (soccer) players posing together came out of the recent uploads section of Flickr. It’s a great illustration of how to take a quick posed shot outside in the afternoon: find some shade! Look in the background (or in the other pictures…

Photo by: Ft. Couch Potatoes. This snapshot of some cyclists taking a break came out of the recent uploads section of Flickr. Two things of interest here. One, a “sports” shot doesn’t necessarily have to be an action shot. Those are cool and all, but at the end of the…

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.
