Boost your online presence by joining Google+ and then connecting to a wide range of communities that are within the Google Universe. These photography communities allow viewing and sharing of specific images while encouraging direct engagement with the creator. I am on G+ and administer “Creative Couples Photography” and “Homecomings, Proms, and Graduations.” I am also connected to all the communities that interest me.

Photo Tip Wednesday: Read a Blog or Book

Read a Photography Book or Blog.

Even as a professional photographer I still read blogs from other skillful photographers. The understanding of the photographer’s lifestyle is to always keep growing and challenging yourself. I would start with “the digital field guide” for the make and model of your camera. You can pick these up in any Barnes and Noble and they are great to have when you are going shooting in case you get stuck.

Photo Tip Wednesdays: Take Daily Life Photos

Daily Life Photos

Now these are selfies but you should be shooting images that you pass daily. The home commute can be quite different if you stop and take some images at the farmers market as you purchase your healthy fruits and veggies. Use your DSLR for this one and stick to one lens. I would use a 50mm lens for this daily activity.

Photo Tip Wednesday: Take Your Camera

Take Your Camera

Opportunities to capture cool and interesting stuff are all over the place. Never leave home without your camera as you may miss a moment you want to capture. There are times where you may not want to bring the DSLR out but at least have your camera phone ready to go when needed.
