I’m no longer updating this website, Digital Photography How To. However, I have started a new blog called Rockin’ Photogs, which is similar in scope. You’ll find a similar article there about the max image size on Facebook. Facebook has been making a lot of changes lately, and features related to sharing images and photos…

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…

Printing pictures is much cheaper than it used to be. Gone are the days of developing film and processing negatives. If you shop around, you can find a great deal, and sometimes you can even get some free prints for opening an account. It’s for this reason that I’m going…

This morning, my wife showed me a photo greeting card she wanted to order from Shutterfly. It was alright. I asked her how much they cost, and she said they had a really great deal that was something like $20+ per 50 cards. I then reminded her that Costco sold…

But… I did finish one project. I finally got around to adding a section to my photography studio’s site for ordering comp cards.┬áMore on that later. Hurricane Irene plowed through New Jersey last night into this morning. So, instead of building the second half of my photobooth, I ended up…

A ways back, I posted some thoughts on . I didn’t get the project done in time for the party like I wanted, but I was still able to . Now that the deadline is out of the way (and a whole bunch of other craziness in my life), I…

MPix Pro is the “professional” version of MPix. Most of the products are the same, but the price lists are different, and you also get the option to use the ROES ordering system and drop ship orders. There are also some products that are (or used to be) unique to…

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….

Photo booths seems to be all the rage these days at big events. The last few weddings I’ve been to, there’s been a photo booth where anyone can go in, take a set of pictures, and one strip of the pictures is saved for the couple. These are then placed…

I took over as the advisor of the yearbook club at my high school three years ago. At the time, our club was in a pretty bad way, financially. In a traditional yearbook publishing setup, you need to pre-order a certain amount of books. You then have to sell all…

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.
