When Focusing Pays Off

Focusing. It’s so important. And shedding the weight of trying to create art in the search of being found wasn’t working. No one wants to be force fed art, no one wants to buy art from an unknown, and most importantly, I don’t want to be a starving artist. (I really like food). So, I…

Looking In and Looking Forward

There has been a lot of introspective time lately. You’d be surprised how much of that I’ve been doing. It’s almost been, all consuming. But, it’s been so important for me to do. You might have noticed that amount of fine art photography I’ve been doing. It felt really good, like, really good. I was…

I’m finally selling prints

I put the gallery together, it’s starting with the favorites and will add more as I create more art for the masses or for the few. If you have a favorite shot of mine, you can always say, “HEY WHY DON’T YOU HAVE THIS HERE FOR ME TO BUY” and I can upload it to…

Rumblings from Instagram

I actually put together a poll on doing something a little more professional in terms of selling some prints. I know, it’s a novel concept. Selling my art for money? Well, the positive result is that, 12 hours into it, a lot of people have said they wanted to buy my work. This gave me…

*YAWNS* Wait, what time is it?

It seems like I had overslept in terms of activity on this blog. I had an excuse for August, but I didn’t even post a single thing in July. So here we are, it’s September, and a lot has happened and a lot is happening. It will be good for everyone, and great for lovers…

Happy Birthday Nina!

Everyone has their inspirations that drive them to be a better person every day. For me, that person is my wife and best friend Nina. And today? Today is her birthday. So, no tips on photography, just love for my wife and the journey we are on together. Without you, I would have never got…

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask

What a statement, “Don’t Be Afraid to Ask”. “Ask What?!”, You might ask. Well, that is the million dollar question. Whenever you have an obstacle in front of you, you need to stop being so stubborn and figuring it out for yourself, and stop being afraid to ask someone who has gone through it before….

Don’t shoot fireworks… unless you really shoot fireworks.

It’s July. That means people are getting ready to take photos and videos of fireworks that no one will watch or look at ever. Sorry, this is a cold hard truth. So, this is an important statement for you to learn. Don’t Shoot Fireworks, Unless You REALLY Shoot Fireworks. What do I mean by that?…

I Don’t Know How To Use Patreon

The title kind of says it all. I have a Patreon, I used to use it for our old gaming podcast/youtube/streaming community. It was easy to handle then, it made sense and it was simple to execute. So, I decided to start one for my blog. I was thinking to do so to offset the…

Words of Wisdom, From Instagram

Through instagram, *cough cough* https://www.instagram.com/sng.photo/, I’ve made a ton of insta-friends with other photographers and models throughout the country. Some I do some retouching work for, some I just admire their work, and others, well, others I seek wisdom and knowledge from the veterans. One of my favorites is Scott Rust, AKA Rusty Pants. Check…
