To me, minimalism is simply about focus – not camera focus, but focus on a single idea. Thinking about ONE thing – forcing my mind to go into almost a meditative state and zeroing in on one important theme or subject. Being careful and deliberate with all my choices – that’s part of the hallmark of minimalism for me.

I’m slightly more than half way through my experiment with using my iPhone 13 Pro as my main camera. I committed to one year back in November of 2021. What have I learned? I think that in most cases – for most people – it’s all the camera you need.
That line is from the new TOP GUN sequel and no doubt, one of my “friendly” followers saw […]

I am working with a gallery – (more on that later) to do a show of my iPhone images and when I mean show I mean gallery-quality, big prints. 30 to 40 inches on the longest side – and yes – from an iPhone.

My annual trip to Bosque del Apache, National Wildlife Refuge is complete. I arrived home this past weekend. I drove 3100 miles round trip in my new 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Loredo X. By the way, when I say “annual” that was pre-COVID. In 2020 I did not go to Bosque because of the virus and it was very strange not to be in New Mexico around Thanksgiving.

The three pieces of Topaz software that I use the most are Gigapixel AI, Denoise AI and Sharpen […]
’ve decided to put together a guide to sharper images. Please note this is not a scientific guide or a white paper. It’s got more information in it than my typical blog posts, but it’s not EVERY SINGLE THING you can think of when it comes to sharp photos.

It’s a thesis based on my own decades of experience trying to both understand what a sharp picture is all about, and how to go about getting one. It’s written with one goal – to help you get sharp photos.
