Successful Photographers on “Making it”

I love Flipboard for the iPad…  It makes it easy to find information that just takes so long via a browser…  Which is how I found today’s featured video:  Successful Photographers – Making It. The video was produced by Lee Morris and Patrick Hall of Fstoppers at Gulf Photo Plus in […]

So after much research and hesitantly pulling the trigger on purchasing the Phottix Odin for Canon system…  Two months later, I couldn’t be happier with the remote-flash triggering system! No system was off the table when I was doing my research.  I wanted the best system FOR ME.  And the […]

Okay, so my Phottix Odin review didn’t happen on Thursday…  I haven’t been sleeping well due to my anxiety over my photoshoots next week…  So I’ve been sleeping whenever I can. But it’s done and you’ll have something good to in addition to enjoying your lunch…  Well, at least for […]

Customer Service.  Why don’t companies get it? Earlier this week on my personal Facebook page I complained about some rather bad service I got while at a restaurant.  I had gone in there multiple times but I always felt that there was a bit of attitude whenever I ordered was […]

Gmail:  I love you, but you’ve been letting yourself go over the years… So I’ve been a Gmail user for years. It’s cheap for having a custom domain, reliable and accessible just about anywhere. Never let me down. But I just upgraded a hotmail.com account to outlook.com for free. Outlook.com […]
