6 Reasons Photography Sucks Donkey Balls!

Lets be honest. There are some really sucky things about photography! First off photography is silly expensive. A person has to be Oprah rich to get some shots. For example those massive, howitzer cannon lenses you see on the sidelines of NFL football games can cost $20,000. This photograph below is captured with middle of the road equipment and even at that I invested about $3,000 to get the shot! Which leads to my second gripe! To get the photo above I had to get up before sunrise and be in position as the sun was poking over the Sapphire Mountains of Montana. The reason for this is because some sick bugger decided that one of the best times for lighting would be in the ...

Photography Tips: The Best All Purpose Lens

If you could only have one lens for the rest of your life which lens would you choose?  It would have to be a lens that could handle a variety of different types of photography.  For me that would mean a lens that could handle macro, nature, and model photography. These three very different types of photography require shooting at a variety of distances from the subject.  That means a fixed lens would not be able to handle the work. A zoom lens narrows the field of available lens dramatically.  We can only have one lens in this discussion so what length of zoom would we want? I argue Nikon’s 28 – 300 mm is the most useful of all lens and if I could ...
