Many moments spent gazing upon the ground glass. Framing the scene.
Creating the view. Waiting for the 'click'.

The click belonging not so much to the hardware shutter but rather
to the mind's eye-opener.

That splended moment when all the elements within the box come together
in perfect balance (or awesome chaos.)

It's a butterfly chase. It's a lightning witness. It's a eureka moment of grand discovery.
It's a warm kiss on the cheek.

The photographers spirit. - Michael S. DeBurger

 

The art of photography attracts many practitioners and owes a great deal of its success to it's critics. There can be much debate about what makes a good photograph whereas the ability to recognize a bad photograph seems to be a little more universal. As a matter of fact there are tried and true artistic principles that when accepted, adopted and applied to your craft, will impart a certain "something" that will capture the viewer in a way that they too may experience that "click."

There exist on the internet a peerless source for photographic related tutorials on many useful topics. For a wealth of information on improving your images whether digital or traditional you owe yourself a visit to GeoffLawrence.com. It is with his very generous permission that I reproduce here a tutorial on what I personally believe to be one of the most important principles of composition: The Rule Of Thirds.

What's in a name?

My last post had me pondering the name of this domain and some of the reasons why I like it. I still must say that BlogDogIt.com just sounds like a destination site. You know, like YouTube, FaceBook, MySpace, eBay and many others that have entered the lexicon of late.

Now I must admit that I have not exactly sorted out how I am going to turn this domain into cash but like any investment, hanging on to it is the first key to success.

I know there are folks that buy up domain names and speculate on their potential to turn a profit. I can't imagine how anyone can make a living by doing that, but I imagine there are those that do.

Actually, I have 5 domain names in my portfolio now. The fifty bucks a year is reserving several good names - I think. Names that may someday find their way to popularity. However, the main reason I snagged these words is because I liked them. To call them an investment is a bit tongue-in-cheek, but did they really know what they had with Google and Yahoo?
