Blocking Uncle Bob

Uncle Bob ruining the kiss photographUncle Bob is a term that wedding photographers use to describe a wedding guest who sometimes (usually) gets in the way of the hired photographer to get a picture on his camera or cell phone. I understand Uncle Bob. There’s usually at least one at every wedding. They want to be the FIRST one to post a video clip or a picture of the wedding on FaceBook or other social media.

I Hate Drunks

I discriminate. Yes, there… I said it. Not against a race, ethnicity, sexual preference or gender. I love all races, ethnicity, and love my gay friends. I’ve discovered after many years that I am mean to people who drink excessive alcohol. Without going into detail WHY I’m writing this, I just want to give some… Read More

Cropping and Aspect Ratio

When you go shopping for a picture frame, what’s the most “common” size you’ll find?  8″ x 10″.  It’s been like that for… well, longer than I’ve been around.  I remember when I first got into photography, (the film years) and took my film to the drugstore to get processed.  I had 4″x6″ prints made,… Read More

Get Out Of My Head Whataburger

My Foil Hat I’m a little worried about Whataburger. Apparently, they have figured out a way into my parietal lobe of my brain and figured out what makes me salivate like a starving Great Dane. I heard a commercial on the radio the other day that they were introducing a new burger: The “Chorizo Burger”… Read More

Bossy People

We All Know a Bossy Person We all know that one person. The person who isn’t happy unless they are barking out orders to those around them. They are easy to spot in the workplace. They are quick to jump on employees who aren’t doing it right, and even if they are, they aren’t good… Read More

FB is a Virus

FB Disclaimer for Attorneys I’m going to try and write this so that I don’t bring down the wrath of Zuckerberg’s attorneys. When I mention the initials FB, I am not making any accusations about the mega giant that I might call the BOOKFace.  Know what I mean? And I am not accusing the social… Read More

You Need A Plan

My Advice To Millennials I could be wrong. I’ve been wrong before. I think I’m seeing a real trend with the so-called Millennials. They are coasting through life without a plan. No plan, no idea, no clue, no goals, no values, no work ethic, and no desire to get out of the bed of life…. Read More

So you want to be a MODEL

Review – Atkins Meatloaf

A Little Deceptive As a photographer, I’m visual minded.  When I started my diet, I had to go to the store to pick out some sensible low calorie, high protein items for dinners. I had already gotten some little steaks, some chicken breast filets, and some tilapia.  I was going through the frozen dinner section… Read More
