Review: Disposable Camera app by Photojojo

Disposable cameras?  As in those little Kodak or Fuji ones you used to buy at the ABC Store when you were on vacation in Hawaii or at the 7-Eleven near the checkout?   Yep it’s exactly that but in app form built by Photojojo.  WTH right?  We thought it was a pretty cool idea and so […]

Mini Review: On Photography by Susan Sontag

This isn’t so much a review since On Photography has been out for so long and should be a staple in any photographers library.  Upon revisiting the text, it’s still full of thoughtful and relevant ideas.  There are also numerous quotes that will make you laugh and think and maybe even reflect upon and inspire […]

Change is good: Peter Hurley The Art Behind the Headshot

Currently two artists are working in the program: Kristin Cammermeyer (a painter doing stop motion), and Chad Hasegawa. We took our […]

Book Review Imagine How Creativity Works

Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer is a good book for photographers since it delves into creativity and inspiration and where that all comes from. Since many photographers are also small business owners, the same creativity and inspiration is also useful for running and growing a business. Some of the insights that came out of […]

Review: Instant The Story of Polaroid

Ever since Polaroid announced that it was done with instant photography and the Impossible Project started up, I’ve been obsessed with instant photography.  I had some of the last packs of Polaroid film and still have one pack in the fridge that, most likely, I should use pretty soon. Anyhow, when I heard about Instant: […]

Review: Life is a Gift: The Zen of Bennett

Most people know of Tony Bennett as the amazing musician, but he’s also a painter and does watercolors.  I had just come from checking out a watercolor show of a high school friend, Iain Stewart, when I decided to crack open this book and start on it while visiting my family in Alabama. Right off the […]
