Like just about everyone else I’m not famous on Instagram. I take photos that I like, post them, include a few hashtags, and get about 20 likes. I have a few human followers who seem to enjoy what I post but most of my followers are bots, local…

Dave Lawrence (via CJ Chilvers) has a good post on the decision to share family photos, especially those of your children, on the open web. He writes: I’ve taken a ton of family photos – some of which I’m proud of. Should I share those as a larger…

I was on a walk the other with my kids and we were talking and having fun but as the sun began to set we got quiet. The sky lit up and the clouds were set on fire. It was as if heaven reached down to touch the earth.

I was eating lunch with my dad in a newish downtown restaurant. We ate chicken and waffles and tried to talk over the blaring music. The place was basically empty except for the workers and a couple sitting next to the window. They seemed happy, rarely…

I’ve written before about being dissatisfied with my own photography and having never made a photograph that I am 100% happy with. For a long time I thought something was wrong with me, that I was too critical of myself, had low self-esteem, or that I…

I love Instagram. It is, by far, my favorite social network. As long as you follow the right kind of people you’ll have a feed full of great photography and no politics or debunked hoaxes. Yes, you could probably get the same with Twitter or Facebook but…
