Turkey upset about Thanksgiving

Where to buy your camera gear and, ...

... more importantly, where not to. One photographer's opinion.
My experience is much more limited than Steve's. However, I agree with his ratings of B&H Photo, Amazon, and Ken Hansen (Ken just sold me my second Leica). I too had a little bit of difficulty buying from Pop Flash Photo through eBay. And YES, stay away from Brooklyn Camera stores. Their distasteful tactics are legendary. I do not understand why photo magazines accept their ads.

Life is short!

One of my favorite photographers is David duChemin. I have learned a lot from his blog, web site, books, and seminars. David's blog post yesterday prompted me to take an immediate and serious look at where I am going with my photography. You may have other goals in your life. Do not put them off.
Read the post here. And then take action!

color of B&W

When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes.  
But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!

No place is boring, 
if you've had a good night's sleep 
and have a pocket full of unexposed film.

Don't compare yourself to other photographers. Why?
