Welcome To

In case you didn't catch it in the site title, I only shoot with a fixed 50mm lens. Unlike most camera blogs that I have seen, I will not be doing reviews (okay, I might do a few reviews), but simply taking pictures with my fixed 50 and sharing what I have learned with you.... Continue Reading →

Happy New Year!

Well, another year has come and gone... 2018 saw me start this blog and also abandon it for a few months.  While this site has been just a hobby, I need to be more consistent with posting.  That's on me.  Hopefully you all have a wonderful new year and this site inspires you to improve...

Lounging on Lake Lanier

If you have ever had a place in the world that just makes you happy no matter when you go there you will understand how I feel about this view.  Every year growing up we would have a huge family gathering on Thanksgiving at my uncle's house in Atlanta.  Nearly everyone on my mom's side...

DSLR Vs. Smarphone

In this day and age, most of us have a smartphone in our pocket that is capable of taking amazing photos.  There is no doubt that they are fully capable cameras in their own right, but we need to be realistic as to where people are viewing those photos.

Canalside Buffalo

Through all the cold winters and mild summers people in Buffalo flock to the new Canalside downtown.  For good reason, it is the sign of the cities rebirth and continued growth in the past 5 years.  These chairs you see here are on one of the few bridges that span the restoration of the historic...

Sunny Spot

As you might know (or not depending on what you have read about me) I recently moved to San Francisco.  This past weekend was my first time going up to Tahoe and it didn't disappoint.   I had driven up at night so I was greeted to an amazing view of the lake when I... Continue Reading →

What resolution to upload at?

What resolution should you upload your photos at? This is something that I have a hard time with.  For me, I always try to get the highest resolution images I can on my site.  In reality, my 24.4 megapixel, 6016x4016 resolution images will never be seen at their true size.  Why?  Because 99% of people...
