One thing many photographers learn quickly is that photography can be an expensive hobby. This is especially true if you head into a niche field and need some dedicated tools to get the shots you want. Macro is one of those specialties, and it asks you to purchase a dedicated macro lens that is generally going to be pricier than your standard lenses. Fortunately, the photo world is filled with...

One thing I really don’t enjoy when I’m out taking pictures is having to carry a tripod. My tripod came with a case, but I prefer leaving it home when I’m out taking pictures. When traveling from point A to point B, or when not in use, my tripod resides safely in its case, but when I’m out on the prowl with camera in hand, I prefer attaching a tripod strap from its ends and slinging it over my...

Among the best advice I like giving photographers is that they should print their photos. For many, this will mean going to a lab or print shop, in which case you should learn about profiling and calibration. The rest of you are likely more interested in getting your hands dirty and want to be able to do all the work and printing on your own at home. This guarantees you have full control over the...
