Finding your digital photos, knowing where they are stored and making sure you have backups is every photographer’s conundrum. In this free one-hour seminar I show you what works for me starting with ingesting photos to my computer from my camera, deciding where they should be stored, plus options for storing, cataloging and backing up the files.
One of my favorite things to do in photography is use a flash light to light paint objects. They can be small objects like flowers or big things like bridges or waterfalls. In this one hour seminar, I show the techniques I use and how the results can be rather surprising.
There are times when we just can’t get rid of obstacles in our photos and that is when Photoshop comes to the rescue. In this online seminar I show some basic ways to use Photoshop to eliminate things that just don’t belong in our photos.
There doesn’t seem to much more confusing when dealing with digital files than image resolution and pixel sizes. When you are posting, sharing or printing your photos the proper resolution is key to getting the look you want and speedy transmission. In this online seminar I talked about image resolution, knowing how big your files are, what size they should be and how to make them that size. Enjoy the video.
Using Lightroom to convert photos to Black & White is a great way to add drama, depth and power to your images. During this one hour seminar you’ll see how I use many controls in Lightroom to make my Black & White image pop!

From my monthly photography seminar series, this video is about focusing your camera. It sounds simple, and it can be, but when you dig deeper into your camera you’re able to tweak settings and get better autofocus performance. During the hour we talk about autofocus modes, areas and techniques along with back button focus and how some lenses perform better than others.
As part of my monthly seminar series, we had a fun evening talking about photography gadgets and equipment. I’m the first person to say it isn’t the equipment that makes the photographer but having gadgets is a lot of fun and some things will help you get photos your couldn’t get otherwise, like when condensation builds on your lens at night.

Let’s Talk Filters is a fun video is part of my monthly photography seminar series.
As part of my monthly online seminar series, I did a session about tripods. I think for most things, a photographer should always use a tripod, of course there are times when you can’t but being lazy isn’t one of those times. I also talk about the types of tripods, heads and features, including monopods and traveling with a tripod. Enjoy the video.
One of the most common questions I get during workshops is What lens should I use? Most photographers make their lens choice based on how far away they will be from the subject or how much of the scene they can get in the shot. But the creative use of lenses is based on the foreground/background relationship. I explain it all in this video.
