One problem that we photographers (and other creative pros) run into a lot is the need for additional screen real estate.  For those on the go and working from laptops, it’s really not convenient to carry around an extra LCD monitor in your bag (obviously).  But, if you have an iPad or Android tablet, you may [...]

30 years ago, we used slides, prints and albums to share photos with family and friends.  Now, between Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Google+ and 500px, you have more options than ever to share your photos.  The problem is, how do you connect to this much larger audience?

Ben Von Wong is a great friend. No, we may have never spoken or emailed or seen each other in person, but in my mind we go way back. (There’s a lot of people I know in my imagination…I’m quite the popular fellow, my therapist says.) Yet, even better than a friend, Ben makes an [...]
