    Filters for Black & White Photography Sept 14 7 S. Broadway

    When I first decided to venture in to taking black and white photographs, I have to admit, I was a bit gullible. I literally thought it was as simple as just taking color photos on your camera (the one on my Samsung) and just converting them to Black and White in photoshop and be done…

    Beginning Street Photography Sept 14 7 S. Broadway

    Street Photography. You might as well replace these two words with public speaking as far as I’m concerned.

    Using my DSLR Camera: So where do I begin? Sept 14 7 S. Broadway

    As part of my Graphic Design studies, I was introduced to the field of photography and had to purchase my first DSLR camera. After a lot of window shopping and research on where to start and which brand name to go with, I decided on an entry level camera – a Nikon D3200 with 18-55mm…
