In today’s article, I’m going to discuss why EXIF information is not that important. Before I do that, let’s discuss what EXIF is. What is it, and why do people think it is important?

After all, you will need to access your belongings repeatedly in the dark. Probably like you, the way you pack will change over time. But here’s how […]

The publisher of my book, ‘The Landscape Photography Book” made this excerpt available to everybody, and it the recipes behind four different landscape images, and the recipe to get similar images like it yourself. These are from the “Photo Recipes” chapter of the book. In it, I cover:
