This is not always the case, but in many cases color does interfere with the reason for the photograph.

Photo 1 leads you directly to the bride and groom. Everything in the composition keeps bringing your eye back to the couple. The ceiling...

There is much more to black and white photography than simply an absence of color. Maybe we wouldn't feel this way if the first photographs had been made in full color, but that didn't happen and, like many photographers, I grew up admiring the...

At a glance, one might not think that there is a common denominator with these photographs. A closer look will reveal that lighting is the key. Each one has a very similar lighting pattern on their faces. This may be achieved by different means, but...

Some weddings take place in obviously gorgeous surroundings. But it's not always obvious how to take advantage of the settings. Also, it's not easy to get to those backgrounds at the time of day when the light is just right. You simply have to...

So, what does a professional photographer do with his afternoon off? Take pictures. I'd never have believed it, myself, but going to our local art show in downtown Sarasota with a 35mm camera in hand allowed me to see more, possibly, than many of the...
